3, 2, 1, launch! Calusa Spirits official book release set

Calusa Spirits completes a trilogy in the Pirate of Panther Bay series

Calusa Spirits, the action-packed third book in the Pirate of Panther Bay series, is set to launch on—you guessed it—International Talk Like a Pirate Day! The official book release will be on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 from 6 pm to 9 pm ET. I don’t think we can get Ol’ Chumbucket or Cap’n Slappy to make an appearance. We can, however, take up their mantra by making this pirate day super fun and by releasing a grand high-seas adventure in an award-winning series.

Calusa Spirits makes the Pirate of Panther Bay series a true trilogy (although six books are planned in the series). So, Southern Yellow Pine Publishing is hosting an on-line virtual book launch with more than 10 prizes for people participating in the fun. Participants can call in and ask questions, talk to other fans (and readers), or just watch it unfold on Facebook. Continue reading

Announcing #WomenPirateWednesday!

On Wednesday, May 31, 2017, I will launch the first #WomenPirateWednesday (also #WPW) via twitter (@SamRStaley).

The idea is to highlight women in pirate history, literature, movies, entertainment, academia, and culture more generally. This weekly event will feature books, podcasts, movies, blog posts, and anything directly or tangentially related to women and the connection to pirates. I will be borrowing content liberally from podcasts hosted by Phil Johnson at UndertheCrossbones.com. My twitter posts will generally begin at 10 am ET and end at 10 pm ET.

Here’s a quick peak at the women featured on the first day:

Of course, The Pirate of Panther Bay and Tortuga Bay can be found at amazon, SYPPublishing.

Each week I’ll have a preview of the line up on this blog. Leave comments if you have content that you would like featured!
