Hello to all you pirate fans out there. Before you all critisize me for this posting (as i have been on many other forums and received this for not joining sooner, only when I appear to them to have an alterior motif), just remember that piracy takes over people in many different ways, and that not everyone is willing to take part in forums.
I have been a pirate fan since i was very little, many through films and books. So, now that i am nearing my 40th birthday (cant believe that i admitted to that!), i decided to have my mid life crisis and get on with some of my ambitions - one of which was to write a book.
After many a long time,and what seems like a million letters to publishers/agents, etc (who always replied that they were not taking any new authors on), i finally managed to secure a deal with a company in America (I am from UK). So i would like to share my success with you and let you have the details of my book. It is suitable for anyone from the age of 10 years upwards who likes, of course, pirates.
1716 is going to be a year that Sam will not forget. Located on the South West Coast of England is ‘The Four Keys Inn’, where Sam lives and works, and after a chance find of a coin and a jewel, there begins the start of several dramatic life changing occurrences. Pairing up with Old Tom, Sam becomes a thief and steals from the pirate guests…. but Old Tom is from bad stock and not as honest as he initially claims! When events take a turn for the worse, Sam decides to run with the mysterious Captain Marcus Fleet, who carries with him several dark secrets. With the aid of a cursed silver ring containing a blood red ruby, a family heirloom, he purposely leads Sam towards a new life.
For those of you who feel like they would like to read more, the ISBN number is 1413787940, and it will be available soon from www.publishamerica.com, amazon.com, barnes and nobles, and the borders bookstore websites. If you do contact Publish america and cant find it (give them an email and ask them to post it on the site asap).
I thank you for taking the time to read this - and by the way I am a wench and not a lad, not that this make me any less ferocious!
