September is pirate month here at the blog. For one thing, International Talk Like A Pirate Day falls on September 19 (so you'll want to brush up on your "Aarrrghs", "Ayes," and "avasts"). And in honor of this year' festivities, you, the Reading Public, have a chance to score some loot just the way we pirates like it—free!
A half dozen other swashbuckling authors have invited me to join them in a voyage of plunder—oops, I mean a Blog Hop and Book Giveaway with the catchy title, Here There Be Pirates. Each of the seven of us will be giving away a copy of one of our pirate novels to seven lucky winners. Free books—what's not to love?
|Can Dress like a Pirate Day be far behind?|
(I'll be giving away a rare, collectible copy (meaning (ahem) currently out of print) of my very first swashbuckler The Witch From the Sea, a book that's very dear to my heart. (Pirates! History! Romance! No zombies!) I love this book so much, I built it a website of its own!)
Here's a complete list of participating authors and their books:
J. M. Aucoin, Jake Hawking and the Bounty Hunters; Christine Steendam, Heart Like an Ocean; Lisa Jensen, The Witch From the Sea; SK Keogh, The Alliance; Helen Hollick, Sea Witch; Dan Eldredge, Pirates of Alnari; Nick Smith, Gentlemen of Fortune.
The contest begins tomorrow, Monday, September 8, and runs through Friday, September 19 (Talk Like a Pirate Day).
To enter for a chance to win one of these fine free pirate books, just sign in on the link below. If you're extra techie, you can also earn multiple entries by seeking out the authors' Facebook pages and/or Twitter accounts and "liking" them, which improves your chances of scoring, big-time.

(Full disclosure: I personally do not Tweet, but if you are so inclined to "like" my Alias Hook page on Facebook, that counts too.)
We bloggers will also take turns hosting Q&As of a piratical nature with each other for the duration of the Blog Hop. I will update the info here as each new Q&A post goes up.
So get ready to set sail for swashbuckling adventure! Here's your chance to win some genuine pirate loot with firing a single shot!
