Not everyone is keen on ocean preservation but I am. I see the sea five times a week, minimum. It's a big part of my life.
I'm publishing Mermother as a fundraiser for the IOI: http://internationaloceaninstitute.dal.ca/
Methinks it's a valuable use of my time plus more interesting than just random self-publishing. One must be interesting, at least to oneself.
