Arrrrgh You Ready to Win?
Melinda T. Falgoust
Ahoy, ye landlubbers! It's International Talk-Like-A-Pirate Day and in honor o' this celebrated holiday, the pirates have taken o'er me blog! First, be ye certain to check out our shipmates at the original Talk-Like-A-Pirate Site where ye can earn yer sea legs by connecting with scurvy dogs 'round the world.
First, we'll set sail for a bit o' fun...
Tired o' swabbing decks? Grumblin' to get out o' the galley? Go ahead and mutiny along with our pirate mates in this piratey fun to be had here with the author of the best pirate tale o' all time, Robert Louis Stevenson.
Gotten yer fill o' gold? Then, let fair winds and following seas take ye to the REAL treasure! Our fine captain, award-winning children's author Melinda Taliancich Falgoust, is offering a treasure chest filled with buccaneer booty to one lucky swab. The captain is busy scratching away on the sequel to The Gubbins Club: The Legend of Charlie's Gold, her debut 5-star reviewed middle-grade adventure. View the trailer below decks and read more about it or purchase on Amazon.
The captain is askin' the crew to name a character in the next book. So, scratch yer head and think o' a name fittin' for a scurvy, villainous dog. His (or her) heart should be black as pitch, and his (or her) intentions sure to run afoul of more civilized gentleman o' the sea. Leave your suggestion as a comment on this blog post, an' the cap'n shall pick one lucky soul on October 1, 2013 to win an autographed copy of The Gubbins Club: The Legend of Charlie's Gold, a fistful o' chocolate gold (the best kind o' gold, in my humble opinion), a piratical bookmark, a fancy pen (to keep the ship's log...or household larder lists), and other plunder. The contest is open to our brethren worldwide who enjoy a rousing tale of adventure and good fun!
