...and a bottle o'rum: End Credits

...and a bottle o'rum
a virtual event
with pirates all about
happening all of may 2011


Our Capitain Vix was not successful at The Nymph's Node. She and her crew are back aboard The Rusty Dagger in hot pursuit of the elusive Narwal. Apparently he boarded The Flying Elephant and is headed towards the Arabian Sea. We'll find out what happens in the next installment of Seeking Narwal on June 7.


Meanwhile, why not board the Balclutha today which is bound for San Francisco, California. There will be steampink goodies to be had at the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition San Francisco World's Fair.


Thank you dear READERS for joining me for this virtual pirate book event.

Special note: While most giveaways ended May 29, I extended some of the pirate giveaways to June 12 which are noted on the sidebar.
