Back at the tail end of January, you’ll recall I penned a blog entitled “Twenty-five First Drafts.” I had just finished writing the first draft to The Peg-Legged Privateer: A Tattered Sails Novel, and I was pretty happy with the job I did. And in the last few weeks, I’ve talked about the characters involved, the creatures they encounter, and I even wrote up a short storyleading into the novel proper.
And now, it’s time to release Paulina out into the world.
Yes, folks, it is time. For the 25th time, it is time to celebrate Book Day.
Here’s what the book is all about:
Long in the service of the 12th Baron Wilton, the privateer known as Paulina has reached her limit. Between a township that doesn’t care for her, the Baron assuring her pledge that she’ll go down with her last ship, and his lascivious advances toward her newest paramour, Paulina plots to betray him.
She just needs a little help in the form of her all-women crew to do it.
Taking four ladies along with her, Paulina takes the Good Queen Bess for her maiden voyage through the Caribe, where mystical beings and scoundrels alike look to thwart her and send her to the Realm of the Locker.
But they don’t count on the steel and magical energies this quintet utilizes to stain the wine-colored waters an even darker shade.
Set in a parallel world to ours and in the Golden Age of Piracy, The Peg-Legged Privateer: A Tattered Sails Novel will quicken your pulse in more ways than one. It features the fast-paced action you’ve come to expect out of me, as well as a brash female protagonist—again, what you’ve come to expect from me.
And how about a little sex? It wouldn’t be a Sean Sweeney novel without a little hanky panky: Paulina considers herself heteroflexible, and her lover is also a woman. Can you say smokin’ hot lesbian pirates? Smokin’ hot lesbian pirates.
