Well, it took wayyyy longer than I had hoped, but the first novel in my new Pirates of Perz series has been finished. I’m giving it to my primary proofer (my wife!) as soon as she returns from her business trip. Once she goes through it, it’ll then be given to my Posse.
Meet the pirates:
- Flinn – one pompous, over-confident captain with a very surprising jhorun.
- Rusty – quartermaster. Always seem to know where to find the treasure.
- Von – pirate with an indefatigable sense of direction. Would much rather be anywhere else than here.
- Jino – a vicious fighter with an inferiority complex.
- Casimir – brings out the fear in everybody.
- Pedr – lowly cabin boy.
- And Puck, and Arik, and Grenden, and Alquin, and…
There you have it. That’s the crew of the Emberbrand. Quite possibly the most notorious pirate ship of the Seven Kingdoms. If only they would have stayed retired, then they would have stayed out of trouble. As it is, they’re looking for an all-powerful stone. Guess where they think it is? Yep! In everyone’s favorite magical kingdom… Lentari!
Now, with that out of the way, guess what? It’s time to return to Pomme Valley for a spell. A rash of dognappings has been happening, and its up to Sherlock and Watson to figure out who is responsible, and poor Zack to decipher the clues he’s been given! As always, it’s chock full of humor, corgi antics, and colorful relatable characters living in a small southwestern Oregon town. I’ll keep you posted on its progress!
Anyone see any good movies lately? My wife and I saw Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 last week. Well, did we like it? Hmm. I do think there was more humor and more fun in the first. I’m not really sure what the point was to the second movie, nor how it was supposed to fit into the Marvel “master plan” they are always touting. I guess time will tell. The first Guardians got a solid A. The second Guardians gets a B-. Maybe you guys liked it a little bit better.
Starting tomorrow, there’s a new Goodreads giveaway happening for one of the mystery novels. Case of the Fleet-Footed Mummy (Corgi Case Files #2) is up for grabs for residents of the US, UK, Canada, Ireland, Germany, France, Spain, Sweden, and Australia. I think that’s all of them. Anyway, the giveaway goes live at midnight tonight! It’ll run from the first of June all the way through the end of July. Good luck! I hope everyone enters!
I think that’s it for now. Stay tuned! I will be posting the completed cover for Pirates of Perz #1 shortly!
