The Razor’s Adventures Pirate Tales: The Series to Date

IVORY DAWN: Prequel Novella
Ivory Shepard didn’t want to be a pirate when she grew up but she didn’t plan on being orphaned and alone at thirteen with her three cousins either.
After a Spanish raid in Charles Towne left them with nothing, Ivory held her cousins together, trained them to fight for their lives and led them to a life of quiet refuge on the banks of the Ashley River. Believing they were out of reach of the hands of unscrupulous men, they found life on the farm a tolerable substitute for the traditional alternatives life would force onto them—until the night the pirates showed up.
Unfortunately for the pirates, these handy young women were ready, and they weren’t going anywhere without a fight.

DEMONS & PEARLS: Book One
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.

JADED TIDES: Book Two
After finding love in the most unlikely of places, Ivory’s life appears to at last be falling into place. Having proven herself a force to be reckoned with, she has at last set sail for the first time as a pirate. The only problem is she’s a woman and must disguise herself in order to set foot on a ship. Being in love with her captain isn’t helping matters either and whole new set of obstacles are presenting themselves at every turn. Her brash style and tenacity, however, could prove to make her, her own worst enemy.
With a sword in her hand and her new found love at her side, Ivory Shepard is about to embark on a mission to rescue and return every young woman she can who has fallen prey to the jaded tides of the Caribbean sex trade. Armed with a secret log book she acquired from a pirate captain—who also happened to be an evil smuggler, she believes herself well prepared for the task. As she’s already learned the hard way, pirates always prove to be unpredictable and ruthless. Unfortunately for them, so is she.
THE BLUE DIAMOND – THE RAZOR’S EDGE: Ten years in the future…if you like to read ahead.
Ivory Shepard didn’t want to be a pirate when she grew up but she didn’t plan on being orphaned and alone at thirteen with her three cousins either.
After a Spanish raid in Charles Towne left them with nothing, Ivory held her cousins together, trained them to fight for their lives and led them to a life of quiet refuge on the banks of the Ashley River. Out of reach of the hands of unscrupulous men, they found life on the farm a tolerable substitute for the traditional alternatives life would force onto them—until the night the pirates showed up.
Setting foot on that first pirate ship was nothing compared to the life of freedom and adventure awaiting them, once Ivory and the girls were through playing nice. Only one man believes he can stop her and he won’t need a ship full of guns to do it.
If it were only that easy…
COMING DECEMBER 2015: AMBER WAKE: GABRIEL FALLING
Where do I begin? That’s a difficult question in and of itself but when your life is transformed in a matter of minutes into something else, do you begin when you’re born or when your life truly began?
I was born in London as Gabriel Wallace, a child of high society; although I was raised to appreciate everything that softly landed in my hand. I followed all the rules. I worked hard, studied hard and ended up a captain in the Royal Navy before my twenty-fifth birthday. Unfortunately, I saw the world through my own eyes, not the eyes of the crown and my vision was clear. I knew my duty. I knew my job. I also knew deep down, regardless of the loyalty my commission required, my stance was in opposition and it was but a matter of time before I’d be forced to stand alone.
Fortunately for me, my crew was loyal too and I had the full support of my closest friend and confidant as well. I didn’t know where I’d end up but I knew one thing for sure; I needed to get the hell out of England and thanks to them, I was taking my ship with me.

Time to Begin Plotting a New #Blog Tour for Jaded Tides. Would You Help Me Out and Be a #Host?

My fourth book in the Razor’s Adventures Pirate Tales series will be launched next month! 

I know it’s kind of hard to believe I’m doing this again but I can’t seem to get off this ship of dreams so I’m asking for your support and invite you to come aboard for this voyage!

If anyone would be interested in being a blog host, do a book review or an interview, I’d greatly appreciate it! As always, I offer my services and my blog in return to host you as well.

Now that I have parted ways amiably with my publisher, I am solely dependent upon myself in order to make this book launch the best one yet but I know I can’t do it without support from my writing friends in our community.

So, with that being said, if you’d be interested in participating, please either leave a comment below or email me at suzyM45 at aol dot com. I’d love to work with you!

I’m looking for anyone who blogs, is a writer, an author or who loves to read and review books.

Thank you so much in advance!

Peggy

#Amazon Removing Reviews Citing the Reviewer “Knows” the #Author

I am an independent author who has now had this happen twice. These are friends/fans of mine on Facebook and I want to know how Amazon knows these people are my friends. Of course my friends are reading and reviewing my books. They are the first to even know about them! I am a small business who relies on my friends and acquaintances to spread the word for me.

This is just wrong and so unfair.

We as authors have enough challenges just finding an audience. It is completely unfair that reviews can be removed simply because our friends choose to be part of our audience.

Add to this, the two readers whose reviews Amazon removed PURCHASED my books through Amazon. These weren’t review copies. These were purchased Kindle downloads.

Where does it stop? Authors, actors, musicians and artists of all mediums are closer than ever to their fans, dropping the degrees of separation to ONE. The fans love this and so do the artists.

Apparently, Amazon doesn’t get it. 

Check out this petition for more information.
