Talk Like a Pirate -- and WIN!!!!


Avast, me hearties! You come in a fair breeze to visit the merry deck of the pirate ship, Edgy! Me hold be right full bloomin' with book booty, so in honor of this most auspicious of holidays, I am lightening the load so me ship can sail a bit lighter upon the waves.

Holiday, ye ask? Which holiday falls on Monday, September 19th, of this year? Well, I'm aghast ye don't know of it! It be International Talk Like a Pirate Day, of course! And what better booty to be giving away to a bunch of treasure seekers as you scallywags, than a few tomes of adventure and romance upon the high seas?

Want to peek inside me ship's hold and see what books are up for the taking? Here ye be:

Lay me bleeding if I lie, but this treasure chest of four -- that's right, FOUR sea-tossed novels could be transferred to yer very own treasure chest aboard yer very own vessel in as short a time as it takes a blindfolded sailor to walk the plank! But here's the condition (There's always a condition, aye?) Sometime between this venerable holiday and seven sunsets from now (Sunday, September 25th, 2011) ye must leave a comment below --AND, most importantly, ye must word yer comment in yer best possible Pirate Speak to be considered an entry!

(My most humble of piratical gratitudes go to George Choundas for his instructive book, The Pirate Primer: Mastering the Language of Swashbucklers and Rogues, for aiding me to lay me tongue right in concocting ebbry-blastin'-thing o'arrgh-thentic pirate speak for this here giveaway.)

Good luck, me hearties! And may your sails always catch the favorable winds and yer treasure chests be fair to heavin' with books, the best treasures of all!

  6. This is a high tone and fancy ta-do yer offerin', count me in.

    I loved all things historical and pirate until I went sailing on the high seas and couldn't tame my stomach. The experience really killed the magic, but I'm always up for a good read.

  14. By the by, a note for the future winner of me treasure: the cover on me copy of The Redemption is a wee bit different than the one spearin' yer eye above, but yon internet couldn't provide a suitable image to match me treasure exact-like.

  16. ahoy ye mateys! I've ordered me crew to drop the main sail and make all haters of books and other scalywags walk the plank. My crew will be workin hard for this treasure as I promised a portion of rum if we win this booty. Fair weather and the seas be in our favor. Shiver me timbers I see other ships set sail for this bounteous treasure. I must go fer now. Capt Blackhair also known in these parts as Lisa lbgraz@aol.com
