It's been in my head so long...maybe past life memories;)

9. Who/what inspired you to write this book?

It's a revenge tale, who wouldn't like to read that? ;)



  1. Pirates? Revenge? Treasure? I'm in. Sounds like a fun one to read AND write.

  2. Love the sound of your book! Pirate stories are awesome.

  3. I absolutely love pirates! (And so does my 5yo daughter!) Sounds like a totally fun WIP!

  4. I have been lucky enough to read 10 chapters :)

    Can't wait to read more. Thanks Mark, for doing the bloghop.

  5. A book with pirates? I'm in! Thanks for sharing, Mark!

  6. Thanks for all the encouragement! It really helps to get cheered on while writing a work-in-progress:)

  7. Sounds good to me, sir! I too am taking the traditional route. Might as well aim high, right?

  8. Tried to read your post on "Piracy" but couldn't see it -- and the comments took me to this post. Blogger misbehaving, perchance?
