När de tog av henne ögonbindel stod hon öga mot öga med kapten Svartlapp.
Redan när hon hade känt igen de välbekanta ljuden från hamnen hade hon förstått att det var hans män som hade kidnappat henne. Trots att hon hade varit så försiktig hade de lyckats hitta henne och överfallit henne i en mörk gränd när hon försökte ta sig osedd bort till mormors hus.
Svartlapp visste att hon var den enda som kunde visa dem vägen till var skatten var gömd och han skulle göra allt för att tvinga hemligheten ur henne. Det han inte visste var att Fiskis, hennes tama fiskmås, hade följt efter ända sen de fångat in henne. Genom väggarna till den skrangliga vagnen där de lagt henne, kunde hon höra hans skrik.
Så medan hon såg stadens siluett sakta försvinna i fjärran bakom kapten Svartlapps rygg kände hon sig trots allt lugn. Hon visste att Fiskis hade vänt om för att hämta hjälp.
Du är på väg hem när någon plötsligt sätter ögonbindel och handfängsel på dig och sätter dig i en bil. Bilen kör under tystnad i en halvtimme och stannar sedan. Någon leder dig till en plats och rycker sedan av dig ögonbindeln. Var är du? Varför är du där? Hur känner du dig?
Jag tog mig friheten att byta bil mot skanglig vagn och hem mot mormors hus 😊 men oj va roligt det var att göra en skrivutmaning! 😀 Så längesen sist. - #skrivutmaningen#vajbskriver#pirathistoria#piratestory#mås#fiskmås#seagull#stockholm#stadsvy#stadssiluett#skyline#skymning#dusk#nothingisordinary

Just did our first of 3 shows this week in Sheboygan, WI! The weather may be cold, but the people and the food are amazing! #piratestory#tourlife
Pirate Mouse was always a firm favourite with the Telltale Tots. So much so, they voted for it to be the next picture book! Well the wait it almost over! Pirate Mouse drops on 29th February and is available to pre-order now (link is in the bio)😀 Here’s and little about our pirate heroine.... When Pirate Mouse embarks on a treasure hunt one day, something soon catches her eye. But reaching it proves a lot harder than she could have imagined.
This intrepid explorer is determined though, and soon discovers the greatest treasure of all.
A swashbuckling tale of adventure that proves the power of perseverance.
New Kuru Toga drawing pencil from son! The most expensive tech pencil I’ve never had. The lead ROTATES whilst drawing as well as auto propelling to ensure and ‘always sharpe’ end. The leads have a soft core and slightly harder outside. This picture is of the next book (Eliza, and initial drawing of Chinstrap Bill... or could be Jake ;-) ). #authorillustrator#pirate#piratedrawing#piratepencildrawing#piratestory
New short story:
Captain Claus and the North Sea Raiders - (Click the link in my bio and then click 'Blog')
Excerpt: "Once the last grain fell through the hour-glass, a sailor rang the bell. The bell’s resonance that filled the fjord, was cut off by cannon fire. Rapid blasts startled the town and echoed through the mountain range." (Highlight and Search)
A Pirate Christmas Activity Book
By Suzy Senior
The perfect stocking filler stuffed full of wonderful activities to keep little ones entertained over the Christmas holidays.
With everything from treasure maps and dot-to-dots to a yummy coconutty recipe and even a simple re-telling of the first Christmas. I can imagine this will come in very useful on Boxing Day when the kids are still full of energy but all the rest of us want is a few peaceful moments to rest and digest! @lionhudson#suzysenior #activitybook#kidsbook#piratestory#christmasstory#christmas#stockingfiller#bookstagram
Al contrario di quanto si creda, la benda a copertura di un occhio tanto diffusa tra i Pirati non serviva, nella maggior parte dei casi, a nascondere una menomazione. Il motivo principale del suo utilizzo, è infatti ben più curioso: essa serviva ad adattare più velocemente la visione al buio.
A tutti sarà capitato di andare a letto, spegnere le luci e non vedere assolutamente nulla per qualche istante, salvo poi iniziare a distinguere qualche immagine dopo circa 15/20 minuti, benché la stanza resti sempre scura allo stesso modo. Ciò che accade è che, in condizione di buio, i Bastoncelli della retina producono una proteina detta Rodopsina, in grado di rendere l’occhio sensibile anche alle sorgenti luminose più deboli. Tale proteina si forma in circa 15 minuti, che è dunque il tempo che occorre per avere il massimo della visione nell’oscurità; ma appena si torna in ambienti luminosi la Rodopsina si esaurisce in fretta, obbligandoci ad aspettare altri 15 minuti per riformarla.
E si sa, in un mondo di assalti notturni come quello dei Pirati, la rapidità è tutto: ecco allora che tenere un occhio perennemente bendato, era un modo per avere sempre uno dei due occhi completamente adattato al buio, e in caso di scorribande notturne era sufficiente scoprirlo per avere una visione sufficiente. #losapevi ? ☠️

Curses erupted from those crowded around the chest as the lid was pried open to reveal not a cache of doubloons and gems, but a half-dozen logbooks.
One by one the men peeled off, grumbling mutiny over wasted years on a fruitless expedition.
But the boatswain lingered.
He grabbed a tome by its cracked spine and opened it to a random page.
“Deer Diry, last nighte I dreamt of Motherr. She sufferes in Heaven to see me so. How longe can I continu this lyfe with hur eys upon me thus?”
The boatswain smiled. They HAD found it: the true treasure of Edward Teach.

😂 ne me demandez pas pourquoi, mais cette photo m'a fait penser à ça directement... Juste à côté de la Torre del Verger !
Torre del Verger was built in 1579 as a part of the guardian network of towers around the island. There was no artillery as it was only a watch tower. When there was a ship, a fire was lit and a flag raised. Same for all other towers until the signal reached the major urban areas that could mobilize an army. #piratestory
We were very nearly derailed on day one of the pirate tour by flight kerfuffles, but in the end, we have this pool at the hotel, no lost luggage, and some authentic Mexican food headed our way. #tourlife#piratestory
On this day in 1682 John Roberts was born in Pembrokeshire. He never set out to become a pirate when he left home at the age of 11.
Fate dealt him that hand later, at the age of 34. In the six years that followed, John Roberts captured more ships than anyone ever had or would in the same time frame. He notably wrote the first ever pirate code which enforced equality onboard ship and respect towards women. In 1722 he died in battle and was buried at sea.
Cheers and happy birthday to the extraordinary Barti Ddu!
"I stare at him, stunned. He let me cut him so he could take my weapon from me. It's a bold and stupid move... I like it."
~ Tricia Levenseller, Daughter of the Pirate King.
This new author has made quite the first impression with her debut novel, Daughter of the Pirate King. The book is everything you'd wish for in a pirate adventure story... Suspense, epic plot twists, difficult romance, and a touch of eerie magic. This tale takes us on a mission with 18-year-old Alosa, who is the daughter of the intimidating and powerful pirate king, Killagen. She is set out to find something of incredible value, and if she fails she knows there'll be hell to pay from her father. The longer she remains unsuccessful in her search, the more we find out about her mysterious past and the gruelling training she had to endure while in her father's keep.
Daughter of the Pirate King has a wonderful plot, filled with fascinating characters of various age and gender. A point that really stood out to me was that Alosa's crew is made up almost entirely of badass women with the skill-sets to outmatch any other pirate. Alosa herself is a force to be reckoned with, and I never once doubted that she could handle herself in any situation. I also loved the addition of sea sirens and the legend surrounding them in all of their fearsome beauty. In addition, Alosa's constant bickering with love-interest Riden and her confusion with her feelings towards him often left a smile on my face or made me laugh.
The only reason I'm not giving this novel 5 stars is due to the way it is written. I just couldn't ignore the amount of short sentences through the book that could've been made longer and with more detail. I notice those kinds of things very easily, and while others may not, I prefer stories that delve a bit more into the surrounding details so I can better submerge myself into its world.
But overall, Daughter of the Pirate King was an absolute delight and I enjoyed every minute of it. I definitely look forward to the next instalment, Daughter of the Siren Queen, coming out in February of 2018.
Thanks for reading! (You can also find this review on my Goodreads; linked in bio)
