Pirates on Smashwords

The Princelings and the Pirates completed its 90 day exclusive period on KDP Select and has now been published for iPad, Nook, Kobo and other ereaders (including your browser) as well as Kindle.

Pirates is the second adventure of Fred and George, the Princelings of the East, and tells how they set off from Castle Buckmore to explore why the wine supplies from Chateau Dimerie have gone missing, much to Prince Lupin’s disgust.  He has enough problems of his own, since he has to run his castle and find a wife!

Captured by pirates, shipwrecked, washed ashore, our guinea pig heroes find refuge at a castle only to find it is no refuge at all!  Find out how they survive, how Fred meets his true love and how George meets with a very unexpected event, by downloading the book from smashwords.com!  As always the book is suitable for children of all ages, although confident reading skills are needed.

Both books are now linked to my profile on Smashwords and you can download them in any format, and in more than one format if you choose.  A review is always welcome, however short!

Use the coupon code XW49N for a 50% discount on Pirates until June 13th and look here if you need to get the first one in a new format too.

Reviews of the kindle edition:

“Kira is one of the strongest female characters I’ve seen in young-adult fantasy fiction, and I’d recommend the book on the strength of her character alone. … There’s nothing cloying about Pett’s characters or relationships. In a non-moralizing way, the work presents many lessons on how we should behave toward each other.

“The action draws the reader in from the start, and the dialogue is intelligent and full of subtle humor.   … A sensitive reader can feel the influence of J.K. Rowling, C.S. Lewis, and others.  … This book is suitable for children, teens, and adults,… all readers will thoroughly enjoy it. ” DMC Amazon.com

“In this second story in the trilogy we meet plenty of old friends but also make new ones. I particularly like Haggis and Neeps. It’s good to see Victor adding his unique comedy touch again.. what a star he is! ” Eppingstrider, AmazonUK
