THE BLOG (HOP) GOES ON...
Today I'm delighted to be a guest over at Rogue's Nest, the fine Historical Pirate Fiction site captained by author Nick Smith. Now it's my turn to be grilled by the King's men—oops, I mean to participate in the Blog Hop Q&A on writing piratical fiction, history, romance and adventure!
J.M. Aucoin, the admiral of our buccaneer fleet here on the Blog Hop, asked each of us participating authors to describe our ideal pirate flag, then he made a graphic of each one to post with our Q&As. This is the one he designed for me. Pretty cool, huh?
Asked to describe my pirate flag, I wrote:
Pirates like to feature the tools of their trade on their flags (swords, pistols), but I suppose an image of a keyboard wouldn't look very dynamic! (Besides being totally the wrong era.) How about a silhouette of a quill pen with a big, poofy feather. Black flag with a white quill pen. Dripping blood?
I think it came out great!
And speaking of J.M. Aucoin, sail on over to his author blog to read a Q&A with another swashbuckling author on the Blog Hop, SK Keogh. The book she's offering in the giveaway is The Alliance, second installment of her trilogy featuring Jack Mallory, who joins the Sweet Trade in order to settle an old score.
To recap, our ongoing Here There Be Pirates event features seven authors of piratical fiction offering seven free books to seven lucky winners.
