Ahoy, mates!

A Pre-Publication Special Edition of Raising Black Flags is now available for purchase on the web!  This book of over 100 pages includes poetry from fourteen different pirate poets and the artwork of two pirate artists.  Some of the works have been featured here on this forum but some are brand new and they come in a gorgeous black, gold and white Perfect Bound book that is 8.5" by 8.5".  Some of the work included comes from pirates that are very well known among the community here:  Captain Taffy Saltwater, Rumba Rue, Lady Donegan (AKA Captain Maevous O'Connell), Captain Emerald Shaunassey and Diamond of the Ladies of the Salty Kiss, Captain Tito, and yours truly.  This is a Special Edition of the book and will only be on sale until the end of September.  After that time, the book will be reformatted to a different size.  The book will be basically the same but the large square cover will be gone!  So get one of these while you can!  Go to http://stores.lulu.com/blackbead to get a copy of this gorgeous book for only $10.00 plus shipping!!  Thank ye for yer patronage and the crew of the Adventure wish ye fair winds and a slow galleon!!

Ahoy, mates!

Today, and for the past decade, she reviews historical novels and history books for Historical Novels Review and piratical and maritime books for Pirates and Privateers.  She also has her own website and has become internationally known as "The Pirate Lady" as a result of her lectures, articles, and publications.  I met this amazing lady at Pirate Days in The Colony and she was kind enough to take a copy of Raising Black Flags: Original Poetry By and About Pirates in order to write a review.  Well, the review is completed and ready!  She said something very nice things and I am proud to invite you to go by and read what she had to say.  If you do stop by, make sure you let her know that Blackbead sent ye! 

Thank you, Pirate Lady!  And thank you to all of our readers!
