Launch Party! Dukes & Pirates all welcome!

Photographer Kyle Cassidy profiles several books, including The Duke and The Pirate Queen – he’s the namesake of an evil pirate character in the book. He is not really an evil pirate. But at his post, you can see him dressed as one.

Also, RT Book Reviews reviewed The Duke & The Pirate Queen.


I’m having a launch party for The Duke and The Pirate Queen and if you’re in the area, I’d love for you to attend.

Saturday, December 11, 2010, 3 pm

Big Blue Marble Bookstore, 551 Carpenter Lane, Philadelphia, PA 19119

Food! Drink! Books!

There will be a reading, a book signing, and FOOD, GLORIOUS FOOD, inspired by what the characters eat.

The planned menu includes:

Glace apricots, cherries, and pears
Honeyed mint tea
Honey wine
Fresh coconut drink
Fennel and sesame confits
Bird’s nest
Sea salt chocolate caramels
Tropical fruit platter
Chicken satay on a bed of orchids
Kimbab (Korean version of sushi)
Chevre and crackers
…and an almond-almond buttercream cake from Imagicakes decorated with an octopus painted in tattoo-art style to represent the sigil of Maxime’s duchy by the sea.

Come! Eat! Celebrate!
