Pirates, put yer releases here!

This challenge runs from Sept. 17 through Sept. 24, your time.
WILD release books
- with pirates in the title
- with pirates on the cover
- with pirates in the story
- with anything you can reasonably connect with pirates....

I will give a prize for what I deem the most interesting themed release!

And: be sure to check out http://talklikeapirate.com/---/wordpress for history of Talk Like a Pirate Day (always September 19), as well as useful links such as "how to talk like a German pirate" , and how to find your pirate name.

And remember: the word piRATe has a rat in it, so these releases also work for the September animal challenge and vice versa.

How fun, Bascula!!! : D My Mother was German and while I am looking forward to releasing my books on the 19th for Sprich-wie-ein-Pirat-Tag when I am out and about for some doctor appointments that day, I never thought to search for how to talk like a German pirate, nor to search for how to find your pirate name!!! : ) Here's a quiz link for that if you're interested. ; ) http://www.piratequiz.com

Good reminder; I always take advantage of that. And many pirate-themed books have covers showing lots of blue ocean and sky, which would qualify them for the September Sapphire release challenge as well!

I just saw a flyer for this exhibit today, too bad I didn't see it before I made my releases http://www.portlandsciencecenter.com/---/Real-Pirates-A-National-Geographic-exhibition . They could have all been themed releases. I never even heard of the Portland Science Center before.
