Cinnamon and Gunpowder

 

Mark your calendars now!  Join us in Second Life for a rousing discussion of a fine new novel which features pirates and food! Pick up yer copy of “Cinnamon and Gunpowder” by Eli Brown, just published on June 4, 2013, and get ta reading, when yer not pillaging or swabbing the decks.

The discussion will be held on Sunday, October 20th, 2013, 3:00-4:30pm slt at the Mary Read Stealing, er I mean Lending Library, on the Scoundrel Fleet’s island in Blake Sea. We will meet at the Mary Read-ing Room, next to the library.

“Cinnamon and Gunpowder” was featured on Indie Bound (Support Indie Books! Yar!)

“A swashbuckling story is always fun, especially when it includes a gourmet chef on board. Mad Hannah Mabbot, tall, red-headed pirate kidnaps a Lord’s chef, Owen Wedgewood, and tells him he must cook for her once a week. Highly entertaining in spite of the cruel methods of the day and the suffering caused by the Opium smuggling between China and England, which Hannah is determined to stop. A supporting cast of characters that will ‘shiver your timbers’ and Owen’s weekly meals for Hannah are an absolute riot – Owen has little in the way of ingredients and his kitchen, or galley, is minuscule and lacking in everything needed to cook gourmet meals. Read this and learn who Mr. Apples, Joshua, and The Brass Fox are and how they play a role in this wonderfully thrilling story of pirates on the high seas and in the kitchen! Exciting and a true delight.”
