Hello everyone! I am participating in a Blog Tour for the launch of author P.S. Bartlett’s new book ‘Demons & Pearls’.
It’s always exciting when a talented writer releases a new book for the world to enjoy. A ‘Blog Tour’ will spread the word about the launch of the new book so that bookworms, like me, can check it out. Please take the time to read about Peggy aka P.S. Bartlett and the blurb from ‘Demons & Pearls‘.
Of course no one is obligated to buy anything but authors pour their heart and soul into every book so the least we can do is read about it. Who knows you may enjoy it. 😉
Get to know a little about the lovely Peggy in her own words . . .
I was born on Valentine’s Day a long, long time ago in South Baltimore, Maryland, less than a mile from Fort McHenry and Federal Hill. I’m a very simple person. I love my life and am always striving to make it better for myself and my family.
I write, I draw and I still work full-time. I’ve been married for 20 years and together we have two sons, a daughter, three beautiful granddaughters and a ten year old Maine Coon cat named Columbus.
Title: DEMONS & PEARLS
Author: P.S. Bartlett
Release Day: April 14th, 2015
Genre: Historical Fiction/Adventure/Romance
Had I known the repercussions of murdering the captain of a pirate ship, I may have taken the time necessary to rethink the act. As if I’ve ever had a choice that didn’t involve a fight or at the very least, defending myself against some man, hell bent on destroying me or my kin.
All we wanted was our freedom. All we found were demons disguised as men.
A woman pirate needs friends, big strong male friends, to survive in this unforgiving land of thieves and murderers—at least until she gets on her feet. Of course, trying to find one person you can trust is like finding an oyster with a perfect pearl in it—you have to break a few shells and get your hands dirty. We were lucky. I found the biggest, baddest and most honorable man in the Caribbean and he just happened to be in the pearl business.
Q & A
1) What inspired you to write this book.
When I wrote my previous book, The Blue Diamond-The Razor’s Edge, I had planned to write a sequel to the book right away. However, as I’ve done previously, I began wondering how and why my characters ended up in the situations they were in. I began to think about how they became pirates in the first place and once I opened that door, everything came spilling out at me like an overstuffed closet.
2) How did you come up with the title of the book.
Well, if I tell you that, it may give away too much about the story. However, if you check out the blurb for the book, it may answer your question somewhat.
3) What part or section of the book was the most difficult to write and why?
There’s a kidnapping scene. It’s extremely disturbing and very violent. I’d have to say it was the single most difficult scene I’ve ever written.
4) Which character in your book resembles you the most?
Although Cassandra is based on a dear friend of mine, I’d have to say her. I do like to believe though that there’s a little bit of me in each of the girls.
5) If you had to compare this book with any other book, past or present, which book would come closest to your book’s style, storyline . . .
That’s a very good question but I’m afraid I don’t have a very good answer. I honestly cannot think of another book I’ve read that is anything like Demons & Pearls. I did take a writing style test once and the answer came out to be that my style was like Anne Rice. I chuckled when I saw that. Hey, we can all dream can’t we?
