Thank you all for reaching out to me with such kind words and praise for my latest book Pirate Queen: Book of the Navigator! It has been such a wonderful experience and the word is getting out quickly!
In the press:
I had originally intended just a “soft launch” with little trumpet and fanfare to make sure that distribution channels were ready and reviews would come in but it looks like this book has a life of its own! The local paper, The Greensboro News and Record picked up on the book and not only ran information on it, they were kind enough to interview me and one of my young partners in crime and cover model, Hailey, about the process of writing the book. I haven’t seen the story yet, but if it is half as fun as the interview we had, then it should be a great article!
I am currently booking signing events. My first one will be at Barnes & Noble in Greensboro , and another at Scuppernong Books April 6th. If you would like me to appear at your local bookstore, contact me! I’d love to see you!
I’ve had so many of you reach out to me asking for a signed copy, it’s just amazing to me! If in the event you can’t make it to one of the upcoming signings, I have set up a page for you to order signed copies of the book. Just follow the link here and I’ll be sure to get in your hands asap!
I am looking into conventions right now, but the big one I would love to be at is the Beaufort Pirate Invasion. It is a quickly growing festival in one of my favorite places in North Carolina. I’m in talks with them now, so I’ll be sure to keep you posted!
Local bookstores are currently lining up events at schools for me to come and talk to their kids about the art of writing and storytelling. Interest has been extremely high, especially since there has been such a large push not only for literacy in schools, they are also adopting programs to help with children’s writing skills as well and I am proud to be a supporter! I think it is a wonderful step in the right direction. Would you like me to appear at your school? If so, click here!
There will be two versions of Pirate Queen: Book of the Navigator. One read by the author (Me) and one read my Hailey Keller. Why two versions? Some people like a female reader, some like a male. I want to include everyone, though I will have to say that Hailey is doing an outstanding job of it! I can’t wait for you to hear it! Look for both versions to be out sometime next month.
Pirate Queen 2:
Book 2 is underway! It’s been slow going because of everything going on right now, but the work continues. From what I have so far, I have to say that I am incredibly excited about it. It should be fun!
I’m on the hunt for more beta readers! Would you like to help out? Sign up here!
That’s all for now! Now it’s back to work on the next book!
All the best,
