What's that? You say you have nothing to read? Well, here's something that might catch your fancy.
Why, yes, this is my book. Merm-8 is a book that you can purchase and also buy. It's mostly used for entertainment, but if you have some bytes on your flash memory drive that need feeling, then this will absolutely keep them occupied with important ones and zeroes.

mermaid gets stuck in his ship's exhaust port.
Although intrigued by
her beauty, he doesn't need another "crewman" cramping his
style. He smuggles her to Carl Rance, an old scientist friend, who discovers how her biology works,
her origins, and if there are more of her.
But when rumors of sinking ships start surfacing, Gene has to dive into a world of more than just mermaids -- a deviant geneticist, the sea-faring mafia, a silver ship with a rogue AI, and a
secret that, in the wrong hands, could destroy the remainder of
Good enough for you? Still want to read? Then patronize this fine establishment to partake of its wares. Patronize it, I say!
And thank you to everyone who helped me along this road. Now I can tell people I do have a book out. I'm a published author!
Does this mean I don't have to blog anymore?
