    Announcing the first member of the “Mermaids in the Media” panel, best selling author K.M. Robinson.
    K.M. Robinson is a young adult author that has been called the queen of fairytale retellings, dystopians, fantasy, and mermaids books. She’s also a social media strategist that has been interviewed by Facebook for her innovative work in the field and recently represented the USA in a major broadcast for World Social Media Day.
    She will be doing a signing of her mermaid series “The Siren Wars” after the panel.
    Want to preorder books to ensure we don’t run out at the book signing? Visit mermaigcon.kmrobinsonbooks.com to secure advanced copies of The Siren Wars Saga, The Sinking, and K.M.’s other retellings, sci fi, and fantasy books.We’re only bringing a limited number of copies, so this is the best way to ensure you get what you’d like to read and have K.M. sign it at the event!

    I am super stoked to be going to my first Mer-Con. I was extremely fortunate to get my ticket and the intro to freediving at a cheaper rate as I purchased it from someone who was unable to attend but had already paid. I have never done this sort of thing before and I am praying to Goddess that I do not embarrass myself.

    Don't worry - you Won't.

    The great thing about this community is the Acceptance - you would have to be intentionally flat-out Nasty to someone to embarrass yourself.
