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!

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

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

Woohoo! How cool! I will save some money to get a present for myself then :)

Don't you dare buy it!! There will be a copy with your name on it as soon as I get them :)

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?

*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!

'Squeeeeeee!!! 😃😃😃😃😃 brilliant news. 👍👍👍👍👍 Yo ho ho and a bottle of Christmassy Rum .

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!
Nov. 18th, 2012 10:46 am (UTC)
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.
