It’s official. I can wear corsets again.

On Saturday February 17th 2018, the first book in my tween magical pirate trilogy will be released with an enormous free PIRATE BALL hosted by the epic Earthly Delights Historic Dance Academy.
They have agreed to run a pirate ball for their monthly extravaganza (7pm-11pm, $25) AND a free mini-ball/book launch for me from 6:30-7pm with lots of great beginner dances for all ages. My kids will be there, that’s for sure.
There will be prizes for best dressed, and for the treasure hunt.
There will be live music.
There will be professional dancers scattered among the crowd.
There will be wonderful and enthralling outfits both piratical and historical.
There will be free food.
There will be my Rather Excellent fantasy pirate novel, The Monster Apprentice, on sale and ripe for signings (along with Heart of Brass and Silver and Stone, naturally).
