A Pirate's Tale

I will update this page with my new word count as I write more on it. Anything I post related to A Pirate's Tale we also be added onto here.

Here is a short summary I have written to give you an idea about it.

Samantha Mayer thinks that she is finally about to get married to Neil Hinds and begin a life on her own, but when she starts to be followed by mysterious men and is threatened, her dreams for the future run the risk of being destroyed. When Neil's past is revealed, Samantha must decide whether she can love him for who he is, not who he was. With continuing threats on the lives of her family and herself, Samantha faces the biggest choice of her life. Are her dreams worth the safety of her loved ones? When everything goes wrong, will Neil be able to rescue his reputation—and his dame—at the risk of his own life while he battles against old temptations and painful memories? They both must make life-changing decisions to trust God's protective hand in their time of greatest peril.

Now, let me assure you that the entire story is NOT a romance. That's not my style. Rather, it is a tale of adventure, danger, lost treasure, and pirates with the aspect of a threatened future. Let me give you a general overview.

  5. I have a question that is not related to your new accomplishment: How did you create your blog? Did you use a particular website?

    1. I used blogger.com but other people prefer wordpress.com

      I've only experimented with wordpress, so I can't recommend it, but I do like blogger for the most part. Creating a blog is actually pretty simple when you follow the sites instructions. I hope this is helpful to you!
