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.

The planned menu includes:
Glace apricots, cherries, and pears
Honeyed mint tea
Fresh coconut drink
Fennel and sesame confits
Sea salt chocolate caramels
Tropical fruit platter
Chicken satay on a bed of orchids

Come! Eat! Celebrate!
More info and directions at the store’s website.
The food all sounds so good! :( Boo! I will be thinking of you, anyway.
