Yo ho, yo ho etc etc etc

Little bit excited to hear that my pirate novel "On a Lee Shore" might be out in time for Christmas.

Not that pirates are particularly Christmassy.

But still :D

Pirates with goosebumps at this time of year. :) none of those open fronted shirts unless they want frostbite.

Of course they're Christmassy - just look at all that red in that chap's outfit!

Congratulations!

Lovely, isn't he? I love Howard Pyle's paintings.

And thanks. The MS is out for copy edits. *nibbles nails*

Oh, but I'd like to buy it. You're a proper author - you ought to get paid for your work. I wouldn't object to you signing your name on it, though, next time I see you.

I'm sure pirates are supposed to wear lots of bling and be shiny - that's Christmassy isn't it?
Congratulations!

*snickers* tinselly pirates - I'm sure they would have loved that. Actually Barti Ddu always wore a magnificent gold crucifix encrusted with diamonds and emeralds that had been destined for the King of Spain until he half inched it, so bling all the way, baby!

Yo and ho with knobs on. I much prefer rum to whisky in my christmas puds too. Maybe I can instigate a pirate Christmas at home?

Christmas pirates? HUZZAH! I certainly wouldn't object to waking up on Christmas morning and finding a couple of hot pirates in my stocking ;)

or is that a couple of pirates in hot stockings ...hmmmm

remember getting a book about Barti Duw,Black Bart one Christmas - it was compulsive reading !

congratulations Elin - hope it is given and received by many appreciative readers over the season.

:) Barti is my hero. In fact I may have a little bit stolen one of his acts of robbery on the high seas. At least if people complain that it's unrealistic I can direct them to Captain Johnson and say that it really happened!

Ah but realistically speaking they'd be robbing one blind and leaving tarry smear all over ones counterpane rather than popping a button or two and purring "Well hello!"

I suspended historical integrity for some bits of the book but when i get involved I can't imagine much beyond the unlovely reality.

Still - book - exciting - teeny squee.
