Blurb and Tagline:

Tagline: He lost everything . . . but his duty to her brought him back to life.

 

 

 

Blurb:

Innkeeper Oriana Thorpe is a smuggler’s daughter who has been hardened by a legacy she cannot escape. She has risked everything, including her safety, in her attempts to break free, going so far as to challenge her evil pirate brother, Charles, in order to save a lady and her maid from his wrath. Determined to atone for his villainy, Oriana distributes the blood money he left behind to widows and orphans living nearby. But when threatening letters promising retribution begin to arrive from Charles, she suspects one or more of her customers may be her despicable brother’s spies. Yet one haunted man promises to protect her, and she finds herself taking the greatest risk of all—falling in love.

Captain Pierce Walsingham should have died when his ship was destroyed by the notorious smuggler Captain Carnage. Instead, Pierce was pulled from the water by the Robin Hood of Cornwall, a pirate known only as the Black Regent. In gratitude, Pierce accepts the Regent’s offer to take over the man’s role, allowing his name to be added to the list of the dead and vowing to protect the beautiful innkeeper who saved his sister Chloe’s life. Unfortunately, Oriana is also Carnage’s next of kin, and the smuggler has sworn vengeance against her and Chloe.

While there is no cause dearer to Pierce’s heart than stopping Carnage, the task won’t be easy. Strategic allegiances have replenished his enemy’s power at sea, and he’s moving ever closer to enacting his revenge. Now Pierce must find a way to defeat Carnage, all while fighting his desire for the resilient woman who fiercely defends her roost.

Katherine’s Bio:

National bestselling historical romance author Katherine Bone has been passionate about history since she had the opportunity to travel to various Army bases, castles, battlegrounds, and cathedrals as an Army brat turned officer’s wife. Who knew an Army wife’s passion for romance novels would lead to pirates? Certainly not her rogue, whose Alma Mater’s adage is “Go Army. Beat Navy!” Now enjoying the best of both worlds, Katherine lives in the south where she writes about rogues, rebels, and rakes—aka pirates, lords, captains, duty, honor, and country—and the happily-ever-afters that every alpha male and damsel deserve.

Excerpt

He threaded his fingers through her unbound hair, then grabbed a handful, gently hauling her forward and slowly molding her to him so their lips would soon touch. Her breath hitched and she shivered slightly, but still he extended the wait. Prolonging the meeting of their flesh was sheer agony, but he didn’t want her to flit away like a frightened butterfly. He wanted her to trust him, to soothe her doubts and fears, to show her at least one man promised safety in his arms.
“I will never harm you,” he said. She was a whispered breath away now, so temptingly close that he knew kissing her would damn him for eternity. “You have my word.”
She placed a finger over his lips, focusing on them before meeting his eyes. “Don’t speak. I’ve already borne a lifetime of lies.”
Guilt stabbed him afresh, robbing his breath.
She smiled brazenly, pulling him toward her waiting mouth, offering a temptation he couldn’t resist. Drugged by her nearness, Walsingham drank her in, relishing the feel of her in his arms, the taste of her on his mouth.
But she was innocent. Not in the ways of her family’s smuggling business, or where her brother was concerned, but in matters of the flesh certainly. It was evident in her shy exploration of his mouth.
A low growl escaped him as he broke away from her in frustration. It was his duty to honor this woman, protect her at all costs, even if it meant descending the cliff this very night and taking a dip in the cold, crashing surf below. Even if it meant sacrificing every lie, every shameful deception he’d enlisted so that she would be free of her brother.
“Forgive me. I can’t do this.” He took her by the hand and led her across the kitchen.
“Where are ye takin’ me?” she asked, stumbling to catch up with his lengthy strides.
“Upstairs. To your room.”
She stopped cold. “No. I want . . . I need to . . .”
“Not in the middle of the kitchen where anyone could walk in on us.” He yanked on her arm, but she wouldn’t budge. Undeterred, he grabbed her and threw her over his shoulder.
“Put me down,” she snapped.
“Shh. Unless you want to wake everyone.” He made his way up the stairs, calmed by the fact that she’d stopped arguing with him. At the top of the staircase, he carried her to her bedchamber, opened the door, and stepped inside. He narrowed the space between them, and she splayed her hand over his heart. “Don’t come any closer,” she said softly.
“I won’t. Unless you ask me to.” He laid his left hand over hers, pressing ever so slightly to ensure she knew his heart beat as rapidly as hers did.
She glanced down at his hand before raising her gaze to his. “You’re as solid as stone.”
Pleased with her praise, he chuckled. “I’m not made of granite, Miss. I’m flesh and blood, a man with needs and desires. Do not doubt it.”
She focused on his chin, avoiding his gaze.
He stroked her cheek and then lowered his finger to her chin, tilting her head back, forcing her to look into his eyes. “And you’re a beautiful, desirable woman. Why aren’t you married?”
Her green eyes sparked, boring into him. “I am well aware of what men desire and I do not need a man to survive.”
“But what do you desire?”
“I . . .” Her breath hitched. “I’m not in the habit of touching men who come to my inn.” She tried to remove her hand from his chest, but he held it steady.
“Don’t,” he said.
She bit her lip, drawing his attention to her mouth. “This isn’t proper.”
“That depends on who you ask.” She wanted him, he could tell, but she was too proud to admit it. By all that was holy, he would never pressure a woman to do anything she didn’t want to do, no matter from what echelon of society she hailed. He wasn’t that sort of man. “May I speak freely?”
“Of course,” she said. “It appears I’m your captive audience.”
“I’ve been drawn to you from the moment I walked into your inn.”
Her throat bobbed gently as she swallowed. “And I ye.”
Her green eyes radiated unequaled strength, a steely reserve that drove her to betray her own flesh and blood to save a stranger—his sister. Was that what motivated him? A need to show her his gratitude? Or was it something more, something deeper, instantaneous, the type of attraction that gripped a man by the heart and never let go?
Who could blame him? She’d worked tirelessly to operate an inn where men continued to exploit her femininity. She was a true Cornish woman who had joined forces with the church and the Seatons to support those without resources, those who could not care for themselves, extolling praises for the Regent . . . Or in essence, for him!
“I’ve dreamed of kissing you,” he admitted.
“Ye have?”
“Aye.”
A growl escaped his throat as he bent to taste her lips. But just before their mouths made contact, the latch on the door shifted loudly. Dredging up strength he didn’t know he possessed, he dropped Miss Thorpe’s hand and stepped over to one of the tables. Once there, he made quick work of appearing as if he had been rearranging the chairs.
Miss Thorpe, in all her decadent allure, bent to rearrange lavender several tables away, the quick ruse perfection as Jarvis walked in, followed by Girard and O’Malley.
“All is well in the barn, Miss,” Girard said, stopping cold and causing O’Malley to walk into him. “Miss, are ye unwell? Your face is as red as a brandy bottle.”

GUEST BLOGGER~ REGAN WALKER~ TO TAME THE WIND…

PLEASE, HELP US WELCOME TODAY’S GUEST…

[REGAN WALKER]

WELCOME!!

TO TAME THE WIND

Picture

MBA&M: Please tell our readers a few tidbits about yourself?

I am a lawyer turned full time historical romance writer as of 2011 (my first novel was published in 2012). I also review books and have my own blog (Historical Romance Review, http://reganromancereview.blogspot.com/). I live in San Diego and love it. Though I have lived on the East Coast, I’m really a creature of the West and never like to be too far from an ocean. I have a serious love for gourmet dark chocolate but otherwise, I am a compulsive healthy eater. All us Californians are salad eaters.

MBA&M: Give our readers a little background on the “Agents of the Crown” series and tell us about your new release is To Tame the Wind.

To Tame the Wind is the prequel to my Agents of the Crown Regency series. They are all related but can be read as “stand alones.” Because To Tame the Wind is the love story of the parents of the heroes in books 2 and 3 of the Agents of the Crown, it necessarily takes place 30 years earlier, in the late 18th century. But there are still spies aplenty as there are in the other books and a few British lords lying about. It’s also a unique setting in that it’s set in the last year of the American Revolution from the vantage point of England and France.

The Agents of the Crown books are based on the premise that the British Crown had its “special agents” that were sent on unique assignments. Along the way, of course, they meet some special women they can’t resist.

 

 

MBA&M: To Tame the Wind is a romance that takes place in part on a schooner. What do you feel the appeal of High Sea adventure and Georgian romance is for today’s readers?

I love romance on the high seas and sea captain heroes. To command a ship and take it through dangerous waters gets my blood boiling. I’ve written two of them, Wind Raven (book 3 in the Agents of the Crown series) and now To Tame the Wind. Both have pirates as characters and a noble English sea captain hero. One is a Regency (early 19th century) and one is Georgian (late 18th century). I love both periods in history but there’s something about a man with hair tied back at his nape like they wore it in the 18th century that attracts, I must say.

MBA&M: Why do you, as a writer, enjoy writing Historical Romance?

I love diving into the past and creating a world my readers can love. I vow to sweep them away for history, adventure and love. I do hundreds of hours of research for each book so that I can include real history and real historic figures. The historical romance writers of the past that I admire most did this, adding great depth to their stories. That is my goal, too.

MBA&M: How do you unwind or relax after a long day of writing and social networking?

Dinner in front of the TV with a period series like Viking, Outlander, Turn or Game of Thrones. Then I read until bedtime. I love to read. On the weekend I might unwind with friends. I love to dine out.

 

 

MBA&M: What is your favorite genre to read for pleasure?

Historical romance, of course! You might be surprised to know that I read my first romance in 2009 and now am a top reviewer on Amazon with 800 reviews—all romance and almost all historical.

MBA&M: One last question, when can readers expect to see the next in the “Medieval Warriors” series?

I’m writing it now…book 2, Rogue Knight. It follows The Red Wolf’s Prize and it’s set in England three years after the Norman Conquest. It tells the story of a young widow, Emma of York and Sir Geoffroi de Tournai, a Norman knight who will persuade her not all knights are the same.

 

Thank you, Regan Walker, for visiting with us and our readers today! Although, I read a wide variety of genre, Historical Romance/Fiction will always be my favorite!



TO TAME THE WIND is the prequel to the Agents of the Crown trilogy!

What an exciting Georgian Romance…

 Regan Walker
Bestselling author Regan Walker loved to write stories as a child, particularly those about adventure-loving girls, but by the time she got to college more serious pursuits took priority. One of her professors encouraged her to pursue the profession of law, which she did. Years of serving clients in private practice and several stints in high levels of government gave her a love of international travel and a feel for the demands of the “Crown” on its subjects. Hence her romance novels often involve a demanding sovereign who taps his subjects for “special assignments.” In each of her novels, there is always real history and real historic figures.

BOUND BY THE BUCCANEER

[Pirates of the Jolie Rouge Trilogy]

NORMANDIE ALLEMAN

{Erotica Historical Romance}

Please help us welcome today’s guest:

Bound by the Buccaneer by Normandie Alleman

WELCOME< NORMANDIE!!

What is the appeal of Buccaneers and romance for today’s readers?
The appeal of the pirate is timeless. The original “bad boy”, the pirate is “hard to get”, a perfect challenge for the woman who wants to catch that elusive fish and be the one to make him settle down and change his ways. Often at sea and living by his own code of conduct, a pirate doesn’t usually have time for significant relationships. Pirates are outlaws, yet we are sympathetic to them, partly because we can live vicariously through their adventures. We can sit in the comfort of our reading nooks and experience their risky quests for freedom, wealth, and excitement.
During the 1600’s there were certain standards as to how people were expected to behave. However, pirates had a healthy disregard for laws and convention. Pirates are rebels, and therefore the characters in Bound by the Buccaneer are liable to do things outside social mores. One of the reasons we read is to hear stories about people who do things we ourselves would not. Speaking of that, here’s a snippet of what happens when Frederica’s beloved Gaston tells her that he must share her with the three pirate captains with whom they have just formed an alliance.

 

Excerpt

“You did what?” A white fury had overtaken Frederica, and was now in a full-blown rage. “You agreed I would do what?” Her voice grew more shrill by the minute.
Gaston had taken her back to their cabin aboard the Ocean’s Knave and told her about his agreement with Pugwash, Chatham, and Appling. He seemed upset about the bargain too, his brow had a new crease and he looked weary. He sat on the bed as Frederica paced around the room trying to absorb the news.
“If you won’t agree to this, Freddie, we will not receive their protection. We will be sailing the Caribbean marked men, the prime target for every pirate ship on the water. Our crew is mighty, but one day we will find ourselves out-manned, out-gunned, or both.
We headed down this path because you don’t have the stomach for killing innocents, but there are consequences to every action. And the consequences for what we’ve done is that we’re the most hunted, most wanted pirates in the Caribbean.”
“Good deeds must be punished? Is that what you’re saying?” she asked defiantly.
“Frederica, you are not a child. Do not behave as one. Pirates, as a rule, do not share your scruples. Perhaps I should never have gone along with your idea to raid other pirate ships, but I did and there’s no sense in rehashing events from the past. What’s done is done.
“The answer is simple. We need protection, a larger force. There is strength in numbers and these three captains are willing to join us with their ships and their crews. That would make us 400 strong, Frederica! Imagine that…The only snag is if they think me a dandy who dances to a woman’s tune they will have no desire to be associated with the Ocean’s Knave.” He shook his head. “And no pirate worth his salt would blame them”
Knowing he spoke the truth did little to quell her concerns. Her stomach tightened. “I still don’t understand why they must bed me,” she complained. Gaston was treating her as if she were a possession to be shared without a hint of concern for how his actions would affect her, and it hurt.
Running out of patience he sighed. “My dear, if I offer you as a gift they will view you more as my property than as my shrew, thereby proving their concerns are unfounded.”
Rolling her eyes she repeated his words with a sneer. “Your property?”
“Yes, my property,” he said in a no-nonsense tone.
“But…” she tried to find words. The idea of three men, strangers to her, taking her body as they wished frightened her. However, along with the fear, she felt a little glimmer of excitement and possibly curiosity. Gaston was the only man she’d ever been intimate with, and now she wondered what it would be like to be taken by another man.

Here’s the blurb:

Bound by the BuccaneerTwo years after Rescued by the Buccaneer, Gaston and Frederica have found great success raiding other pirate ships, but as a result have drawn a target on their backs. Their only hope of avoiding vengeance from the pirate community is to form an alliance with a trio of like-minded sea captains, but in order to guarantee their cooperation Gaston is forced to offer them a night with Frederica.

Though she agrees to the tryst, Frederica cannot predict the consequences of broadening her carnal education or how her actions will affect Gaston. As jealousy and desperation threaten to consume him, will Gaston lose his beloved Frederica or discover a way to tie her to him forever?

Bound by the Buccaneer will be released by Stormy Night Publications on the 25th July.

**Publisher’s Note: Bound by the Buccaneer is the second book of the Pirates of the Jolie Rouge trilogy, which began with Rescued by the Buccaneer.

Since these books are best read in order, here is the blurb for the first book in the series – Rescued by the Buccaneer.

rescuedbythebuccaneerRescued by the Buccaneer

When Frederica Beauchamp boards a ship for the Americas, she dreams of a life filled with adventure, but she gets more than she bargained for when her passenger ship is attacked by pirates. The heartless men kidnap her and force her to serve their captain—a fate that might be worse than death, since though he does not have his way with her, the captain delights in baring her, shaming her, and thrashing her bare bottom as punishment for every imagined disobedience.

After the pirates bring aboard an injured man found floating in the sea, Frederica tends to his wounds and learns that he is Gaston Galette, a survivor of a shipwrecked vessel. Gaston seeks her help to overthrow the vile captain, but when their plan goes awry he is forced to use all of his wiles to save them. As the naïve girl and the seasoned sailor navigate one perilous situation after another, he informs Frederica that the only way they can survive is if he is in command, and that if she thinks things can be otherwise, she will be taken over his knee for a bare bottom spanking.

As he watches the proud, willful Frederica bow to his authority, however, Gaston worries that her growing hold on his heart will be his downfall. He knows he cannot take a woman with him when he returns to his ship and crew, but when Frederica accepts his lustful dominance completely, submitting to him with grace and beauty no other woman could match, Gaston realizes that he may never be able to let her go.

FALLING FOR THE PIRATE~ AMBER LIN…

Falling for the Pirate

Title: Falling For The Pirate

Author: Amber Lin

Release Date: July 21st, 2014

About Falling For The Pirate (Men Of Fortune #2):
Falling For The Pirate CoverVengeance is a dish best served in bed…

London, 1812

After the deaths of his parents and a dark, troubled childhood, Captain Nate Bowen vowed he would have his revenge. But he never expected to have the tool of his revenge dropped so neatly into his lap. Juliana Hargate is not only the daughter of his enemy, but is destitute, very much alone—and exquisitely desirable.

And now that Nate has saved her life, she’s at his complete mercy…

Captive. All Juliana wanted was to clear her father’s name. Instead, she’s been struck with amnesia—unable to recall even her name—and imprisoned by a tall, imposing, and entirely unscrupulous pirate.A pirate whose eyes seem to look past her skirts and many petticoats, and whose touch sends delicious ripples of desire through her. With every passing day, she finds herself tempted to give him the very thing he’s determined to take…

Amazon // B&N

 

The Men of Fortune Series by Amber Lin:

#1 Letters At Christmas (novella) : Amazon / B&N

 

Excerpt:

It was warm in the room. Too warm. The blankets were suffocating, and someone had built a strong fire. She could smell the coal.
Coal. There was something about coal, but she couldn’t remember what. Her head felt foggy, as if filled with water, her thoughts adrift in the murky dark. There was something important she had to remember. Floating just beyond her grasp.
Cuts and bruises all over her body made themselves known as she came awake, as if they awoke too, one by one. Her palms burned, as though she’d fallen and scraped them. Her ankle throbbed—possibly she’d twisted it. Her side ached. What had happened to her?
If she held herself very still, the pain dulled to a muffled roar, just quiet enough that she could focus on other things.
Such as where she was.
And who she was.
Her eyes felt glued shut. She opened them by force of will and stared at a plain drapery striped with light and dark blue. Pretty; serviceable. She was almost sure she’d never seen it before. Almost, because she couldn’t remember what she had seen before. She could only feel certain she hadn’t.
The furniture looked heavy. Good quality. Not ornate.
That detail seemed meaningful to her. Not ornate. As if she had once lived somewhere that was ornate—with fancy tapestries and delicately carved furnishings. Somewhere much colder than here.
A faint memory of freezing water and sinewy shadows came to her, tickling her memory. Sinking, drowning. But nothing moved beneath her now, and her throat felt utterly dry. If she’d been in the water at some point, she was most definitely on land now.
She looked around, letting her gaze sweep the cozy room before landing on a large wooden chair. More to the point, the man sleeping in the chair.
His legs were spread wide—bracing himself, even in sleep. His shoulders were well above the back of the chair, his head leaning against the wall behind. He seemed too large for the furniture, like a grown man sitting on a child’s rocker in a nursery. Only, this chair was quite average-sized.
She had a sense of familiarity, of having seen him before. Which was strange, because she didn’t feel like the sort of woman acquainted with pirates.
And this man was most definitely a pirate.
He wore no jacket. She felt faintly scandalized, except he was also alone in the room with her. He was alone in the room with her, which was far worse than being in shirtsleeves. And if that weren’t shocking enough, the ties at his collar hung loose, baring a portion of his chest. Tanned. Sprinkled with dark hair. And wholly inappropriate for her to see.
She looked away—and right into his eyes. He was awake now. He’d been watching her examine him.
“Who are you?” Her voice came out low and rough. What had she been doing last night to make her voice so raw?
And had she been doing it with him?
The pirate stretched slowly, wincing as his body straightened into order. She had the sense he was rolling himself back up, as if he were a tree he had to trim just to stand upright.
“You asked me the same question last night,” he remarked.
His voice vibrated with sarcasm. He didn’t sound happy to greet her this morning. And, in fact, her sense of familiarity was completely misplaced if she’d asked for his name just last night.
“What did you answer?” she asked.
A glimmer of humor shone from his eyes before they went black again. Black like his hair. Black like the sea. He smiled, and the smile was black, too—with irony and annoyance. “I didn’t,” he said. “I’m not in the habit of explaining myself to thieves.”

SONY DSCA bit about the author…..

Acclaimed author, M.L. (MaryLu) Tyndall dreamt of pirates and sea-faring adventures during her childhood days on Florida’s Coast. After obtaining a degree in Math and working as software engineer for 15 years, she decided to test the waters as a writer. With now more than ten books published, she makes no excuses for the deeply spiritual themes embedded within her romantic adventures. As a follower of Christ, her stories often reflect her own journey and walk with God. Her hope is that readers will not only be entertained but will be brought closer to the Creator who loves them beyond measure. In a culture that accepts the occult, wizards, zombies, and vampires without batting an eye, MaryLu hopes to show the awesome present and powerful acts of God in a dying world. A Christy award nominee, MaryLu makes her home with her husband, six children, and four cats on the California coast, where her imagination still surges with the sea.

#GIVEAWAY AND #VISIT WITH HISTORICAL ROMANCE AUTHOR, GLYNNIS CAMPBELL…

MBA&M IS PROUD TO PRESENT….

HISTORICAL ROMANCE AUTHOR….

GLYNNIS CAMPBELL,AUTHOR OF “THE SHIPWRECK”!

TheShipwreckFINAL

SO WITHOUT FURTHER ADO,WELCOME GLYNNIS!!

Glynnis CampbellMBA&M: Please tell our readers a few tidbits about Glynnis Campbell they may not know.

GC:  First of all, thanks so much for hosting me today!  I love My Book Addiction readers.  For those who don’t know me yet, I’ve written books under three pen names: Glynnis Campbell, Sarah McKerrigan, and Kira Morgan.  My husband tells people he’s on his third wife!  I’ve had a bunch of offbeat careers—I had my own ballet studio when I was 18, I wrote musical score for science films, I was in an all-girl rock band on CBS Records, and I still do voiceovers.  I’ve done voices for “The Maxx” animated series for MTV, “Star Wars” audio adventures, “JumpStart 1st Grade” software, and “Starcraft” and “Diablo” video games, and I’m planning to do my own audiobooks this year!

MBA&M: What do you feel is the allure of writing about the Dark Ages and Vikings?

GC:  I wrote THE SHIPWRECK because I wanted an origin novella for my Scots medieval trilogy, The Warrior Maids of Rivenloch, and in my mind, the sisters came from a long line of strong women.  The first people to live in Scotland were the Picts, so-called because of the blue pictures they tattooed on their bodies.  Around the time of THE SHIPWRECK, the Vikings had begun to invade and settle Pictland, so there was an intermingling of the cultures.  Their societies, their legends, and their designs began to merge, creating the foundation for what we think of as Celtic.  Vikings also brought to the early Scots the idea that men and women should have an equal hand in government, which became the perfect beginning for my empowered Rivenloch heroines.

MBA&M: Where did the idea of a shipwrecked Viking come from?TheShipwreckFINAL

GC:  I’m often inspired by “what if” ideas.  In the case of THE SHIPWRECK, I started thinking about invading Vikings and how people lived in terror of these giants from the North who arrived with stealth and in great numbers, attacking with ruthless aggression.  But what if, I wondered, an invading longship became shipwrecked, leaving only one Viking survivor washed up on shore?  Suddenly, the tables would be turned.  The invader would become a victim, completely at the mercy of whoever stumbled upon him.  Of course, I instantly knew it would have to be the heroine who stumbled upon him!

MBA&M:  What was your favorite part of writing “The Shipwreck”?  What was the worst part?

GC:  I’d have to say my favorite part was the research!  I have a Danish friend who took me to Denmark to stay with her family for a month.  We scoured Viking museums, saw a Viking play, visited ancient Viking settlements, ate Viking food, drank Viking beer, spoke to Viking reenactors, attended a Viking festival, and even sailed a Viking longship on a fjord!  The worst part of writing THE SHIPWRECK was keeping my heroine Avril’s little daughter from stealing the scenes!  Four-year-old Kimbery was a delight to write, but she kept getting in the way of the romance…much like real children.

MBA&M:  Most authors talk about the main characters, but we would like to talk about a couple of the secondary characters:  Who stands out the most as a secondary character, both male and female?  Why?  Tell us a little about them, and will they eventually have a story of their own?

GC:
  The heroine’s half-Viking little girl, Kimbery, is really the matchmaker of THE SHIPWRECK.  She’s the first one to see past the hero’s frown and ferocity to the broken man within.  It’s her innocent view of Brandr that finally convinces Avril to move past her own damage and to look at him with an open heart.  The other secondary character is one I put into every book I write—someone named “Campbell” in honor of my husband.  This time I’ve given the ancient name, “Caimbeul,” to Kimbery’s sheep!

MBA&M:  Tell our readers what scene stands out the most in your mind or was your favorite scene.

GC:  I enjoyed writing the scene where Brandr the hero is recounting a Viking saga to the heroine’s little girl.  Though he seems to be simply telling Kimbery a story, he’s secretly sending Avril a don’t-mess-with-me-I’m-a-Viking message, while Avril, determined to ignore his threat, is sending a silent but pointed you-don’t-scare-me-I-have-you-on-a-leash message back.  It was fun to write a scene where the unspoken subtext was just as powerful as the spoken words.

TheShipwreckFINALMBA&M:  In five words or less, describe your writing style.  And describe “The Shipwreck” in five words or less.

GC:  My writing style:  Exciting historical action-adventure romance!  THE SHIPWRECK: Pictish princess captures Viking castaway.

MBA&M:  Thank you so much, Glynnis, for spending time with us and our readers today.  What a pleasure to have you with us!  Now, please tell our readers where they can find you and where “The Shipwreck” is available?

GC:  Thank you for letting me introduce my new novella, THE SHIPWRECK!  Be sure to enter to win one of three free ebooks, and I look forward to visiting again!

THE SHIPWRECK

GLYNNIS CAMPBELL

TheShipwreckFINAL

Blurb for THE SHIPWRECK:(from the author)

When his wife and children die, Viking marauder Brandr has nothing left to live for, so he sails away on one final voyage.  A storm at sea leaves him shipwrecked, alone, and barely alive on a foreign coastline.  Along the Pictish shore, Avril, a warrior maid and the victim of a Viking berserker, banished from her ancestral home of Rivenloch to a seaside cottage, dreams of the day she’ll raise her sword, take back the castle that is rightfully hers, and find her half-Viking daughter a proper father.  Discovering a broad-shouldered, fair-haired, broken castaway washed up on her beach among the wreckage of his longship, she takes him captive and binds him in chains.  She refuses to be a Viking’s victim again…never imagining that soon her fiercest enemy will earn her trust, invade her heart, and enthrall her senses.

PIRATES INVASION AND GIVEAWAY WITH AUTHOR,M.L. TYNDALL…

IT IS OUR HONOR AND PLEASURE TO WELCOME SWASHBUCKLING ROMANCE AUTHOR, M.L TYNDALL TO MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE TOAY!!

 

THANK YOU, M.L. FOR VISITING WITH US TODAY AND WELCOME!!!

MBA&M: Give our readers a little background about yourself?

MARY LU: I grew up in South Florida where I fell in love with the tropics and tall ships and dreamt of swashbuckling pirates, but I now live on the opposite side of the country in California. How I ended up out here is a long story. LOL.  I have a degree in Math/Computer Science and worked as a geeky programmer for 15 years at IBM. Yes, it’s true. Weird, but true.  I’ve been writing full time for six years, been married for 20, and I have six kids and 3 cats.

MBA&M: What are some lessons learned as an author?

MARY LU: Don’t ever make this career about you. Make it about helping others, about entertaining them and encouraging them and helping them see life from a different perspective. For me, it’s about making people see how much God loves them. When it becomes about me, I get worried, anxious, jealous, demanding. When it’s about others, I just work hard, and let God handle the rest.

Also, write the story God puts on your heart and don’t write the stories you think will sell or the stories that are hot in the market. When I wrote my pirate series, there were no Christian pirate stories out there and nobody wanted historical novels.

MBA&M:  List three things readers may or may not know about you and your writing career?

MARY LU: The very first book that I submitted for publication got accepted. (Please don’t hate me)

I have 10 books published and 4 more contracted.

My very first book, The Redemption, was nominated for the prestigious Christy award!

MBA&M:  What do you feel about self-publishing and will you be self-publishing any of your future titles?

MARY LU: Recent changes in the publishing industry are very exciting!  Many authors who’ve never had a chance to become published through a traditional publisher, can now publish their own work with minimal effort and money. I think it’s great!  It not only opens up doors for so many authors, but it gives us more freedom to choose what stories we will write. Of course that means there will be a ton of badly written books put on the market, but I’d rather have the readers be the gate keepers than some small group of publishers.

Yes, I’m planning on writing a mermaid story that’s been burning on my heart and putting that out as an e-book. This is a book that would never get accepted by traditional publishers, but I believe there’s a real market out there for it and it’s a story that must be told.

MBA&M: MaryLu, with today’s market and the publishing industry seeming to pull awry from certain topics, how hard is it to write stories involving Pirates, especially if it is something you enjoy? And do you feel there is a vast market for the “Pirate” invasion?

MARY LU: Back in 2005 when I was shopping around my pirate series, I came across a lot of opposition in the Christian market. In fact I got rejected by every single Christian Publisher except one. Pirates are notorious thieves and let’s face it, most people don’t think Christianity and thieves mix very well!  At least not at first glance. But I’m of the opposite opinion. I think Christianity and thieves and prostitutes and murderers and liars and all other forms of debauchery mix quite well. Jesus himself hung out with sinners all the time. Why would I want to only read about righteous people? What better way to express the awesome power and love of God then by taking a dead-beat wicked pirate and showing how God can change him, transform him and give him life!

MBA&M: Is there a market for the pirate invasion?

MARY LU: I sure hope so!! I have many more tales I’d love to write! But time will tell.

 MBA&M: What do you feel the allure of “Pirates” are to readers today?

MARY LU: I can only tell you why I love pirates. I don’t look at them as thieves and murderers, though some surely were quite evil. I look at them as misfits, rejects, and outcasts from society who took to the seas in search of freedom and a chance to make a fortune. Many of them were poor sailors who’d lost their jobs in the navy when the wars ended. Others were political prisoners escaping tyranny, others were escaped indentured servants, others x-slaves, some just didn’t fit into society’s mold and couldn’t make a living.  Many of them were actually forced into piracy when their merchant ships were captured.  Let’s face it, there’s a little bit of misfit in us all, a part of each of us who feels we don’t fit in. And maybe a part of us who just wants to get away from all of society’s restrictions and requirements and live free again. I think that’s the true allure of pirates. Besides, swashbuckling adventures aboard a ship are really cool!

MBA&M: As a Christian author, how hard do you feel it is to get readers outside of the Christan/Inspirational reader to read this genre?

MARY LU: Next to impossible. And when they do, I often get blasted with criticism about my books being too preachy.  When in fact, they really aren’t. My spiritual themes flow nicely with the story just like wizardry flows nicely with the Harry Potter stories, or vampires flow nicely with the Twilight series. All are supernatural stories. All have miracles and events that go beyond our human understanding. Yet it’s always the books that mention Jesus or God that get criticized.  Go figure. I think if some non-Christians would give Inspirational books a try, they might really enjoy them and find the spiritual aspect of them quite encouraging.
