PIRATE ISLAND COVER REVEAL

Quote for the week:  This is National Library Week, and Chronicle Publishers has five Unforgettable Love Letters to Libraries. Here is one: The only thing that you absolutely need to know is the location of the library. Albert Einstein

Now, it is my pleasure to reveal the cover of PIRATE ISLAND by Author Katie L. Carroll. The cover is fantastic, and the blurb... well, see for yourself. I love pirate stories. How about you?

PIRATE ISLAND blurb:

A thrice cursed island, a
legendary pirate treasure, and one not-so-brave boy. What could possibly go
wrong?

For centuries, the whereabouts
of Captain William Kidd’s lost pirate treasure has remained a mystery. When
Billy’s best friend, Andy, proposes they look for it on nearby Pirate Island,
Billy thinks it’s just another one of their crazy adventures. It’s usually
Billy who ends up in trouble as a result, but he goes along for the ride…like
always. The more he delves into the life and death of Kidd, the more he thinks
the treasure is real and that it might be buried on the small island in Long
Island Sound. Billy—nope, call him William—becomes obsessed with the captain of
the same first name. He even believes he’s possessed by Kidd’s restless soul.
Now he and the spirit of a long-dead pirate are leading the crazy adventure on
Pirate Island. And what they find is far bigger than the treasure they
imagined.

  2. Thanks for sharing the Pirate Island cover, Beverly. It's kind of a weird pirate story, as the only "real" pirate is present in spirit only. I guess you'll have to read it to find out what I mean. ;)

    1. My pleasure, Katie. Well, I guess a pirate in spirit is better than no pirate at all. Now I'm curious. I be we learn something about pirates, though, right?
