Uh... what? It's already been done?
Okay. No problem. I can work with this, because if you've read me for a while, you know that I'm the queen of cross-genre. Just look at my Halloween costume ideas. So I'll keep the idea, but I'll mash it up. Instead of just a boring old pointy-toothed vampire, she'll be in love with a vampire-merman.
I know it's a good idea, because the scenes are already forming in my head:
"Aren't you afraid of me?" said Ward, his ochre fin shining ochrely in the beautiful ochre moonlight.
"I'm not," said Ellba, defiantly thrusting her lip out. "You don't scare me."
She floated toward his beautiful figure, watching the lines of tension etch themselves deeper into his lovely face with every inch. But she couldn't help herself. She reached out, one shaking hand moving toward his hair, unable to resist the need to touch him any longer.
"Ellba," he said, backing up hastily. "Get out of the damned pool."
It's going to be a bestseller; I just know it.
