I am so thrilled that we got to attend this event to celebrate the launch of Tricia Levenseller’s The Daughter of the Pirate King. Not only was it A LOT of fun, but I have been dying to get my hands on this book for months, and I’m so excited to finally get to read it!
Tricia was absolutely lovely and did a fantastic presentation about her journey toward becoming a published author. She shared some fun facts with us, so it is my duty to share a few of them with all of you.
- Daughter of the Pirate King is actually the fourth book she’s written.
- She was able to land an agent after the first book she wrote, which is REALLY impressive.
- She is a HUGE Pirates of the Caribbean fan. (I’m sure you’re all SUPER surprised by that one.)
- Also her current agent subbed Daughter of the Pirate King to all the big NYC publishing houses, and they all declined except for the very last two, who both wanted a piece of this awesome pirate action!
“You never know which rejection will be your last.”
About Daughter of the Pirate King
There will be plenty of time for me to beat him soundly once I’ve gotten what I came for.
Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map—the key to a legendary treasure trove—seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.
More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate, Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.
The event was down in Provo, Utah, which is a bit of trek for most of us YA and Winers? YA and Winos? I’m not sure which one of those is worse. We’ll go with YA and Wine Book Club members, but a few of us were able to attend and we had a great time, as you can see below.
Tricia’s lovely family also had the place DECKED out, including treasure chests handmade by her dad! Check out all this awesomeness!
I usually share pictures of MY signed books on my posts, but today I had to share a picture of the hubby’s. One of our book club members dubbed him The Book Club Hubz, since he pours the wine at all the meetings and holds our books at all the events. Needless to say, I don’t think that nickname is going anywhere anytime soon.
