Cryptid World Newsletter

Cryptid World Newsletter values your time. We’re very happy you’ve stopped by to check out our newsletter. We offer fun and unique content once a month and when there is an update or change that may affect you (almost always in a good way). No obligations…ever. Just content we’re passionate about and want to share with whoever is willing to listen.

Each newsletter contains updates about our books and other projects, including the twists and turns of the publishing industry. Plus, we write three additional articles. Here is a sample of that content:

Cryptid of the Month: You will get early access to Mel’s monthly creations and the cryptid tid bit that accompanies it. Click on the linked text to see an example.

The Creator’s Trademark is a short article that features amazing and awesome characteristics of known living things. Here’s an example:

The Electric Eel

The Electric Eel and example of bio inspiration detailed on Cryptid World
The Electric Eel

Electric Eels, Black Ghost Knifefish, Electric Rays, Electric Catfish, and the northern stargazer are just a handful of species that possess the Biolectrogenesis ability. Meaning, they can produce electric shocks.

This unique ability is used for communication, finding their whereabouts, defense and/or hunting. The electrical power comes from electrogenic organs, which are made of electrolytes.

At rest, electrolytes are arranged in a specific pattern in which no electricity is emitted, but when ion channels open, sodium ions release, causing a change in the electrolyte pattern. Then, ZAP! 

These electrolyte patterns were inspiration for the battery design.

One household rule I’ve never forgotten—keep the hair dryer away from the sink because electricity and water don’t mix.

Or, so I thought…


In this article, we share our objective opinions on all types of items Cryptid or Creature related. These usually turn up in our blog at some point. Here is a link to a past review on Seth Breedlove’s “Terror in the Skies.”

And that’s it. Nothing too lengthy.
