I enjoy reading stories that take place as sea, because I enjoy the sound of the water and waves and the gentle rocking of a ship. And the stories that involve pirates are typically full of adventure and suspense.

2. I have not been to Charleston. If I ever get the chance to visit, I woukd love to see the sights and check out the historic buildings. Thanks for the chance to win a prize. Looks like an interesting book.

I am pretty sure I have at least been through Charleston...apparently I wasn't impressed so likely I was reading a book when we drove thru! I'd love to see the historical areas there and just explore the city a little (w/0 my nose in a book!)

We were in Charleston a few years ago for a meeting for OM Ship ministry supporters.  That was really the best part- learning about what the people on the ship had been doing the past year

However, what I liked about Charleston was the beautiful architecture.  The houses were lovely.

I just LOVE anything related to water! The ocean, ships, etc.  I don't exactly know why, but I've always been fascinated with pirates. 

my fire/EMS family, they devote their lives to helping others in their time of need sacrificing their selves.

Stories on the high seas with pirates are an epic adventure!

I've never visited Charleston. I'd enjoy taking a harbor tour on a paddle boat.

I have been to Charleston, SC. I liked seeing the historical buildings and the city. 

The houses of Rainbow Row were beautiful. I remember seeing the earthquake bolts on the houses and wondered what they were. We rode the boat to Fort Sumter,and it was surrounded by the river and ocean. I would like to go back someday.

My dad was my hero. He not only taught me how to change a flat, brakes, spark plugs and all sorts of things on a car, he also taught me how to use tools. He died in front of me, and I wish he was still here teaching me things. He taught me that it takes 2 to argue, Smile and it will make enemies wonder what you are thinking and to honor your vows. It is hard for me to carry his legacy on with his grandkids. everywhere he went he made people smile and laugh. One day on the way home from school he stopped to save a turtle in the middle of the road. He put him back in the woods. He taught me to love all creatures great and small. He helped me with my homework. I saw him everyday and wish that I still could. 

I'm trying to think of any pirate stories I've read and the only one I can think of is: Pirate Pink and Treasures of the Reef which is a children's book I read to my daughters.  :) 

I did read your book, The Liberty Bride, and thoroughly enjoyed the story with its land and sea adventures!

Good Morning,  Your book sounds amazing and the cover is Beautiful! I have never been to Charleston, but I would Love to see the Charleston Tea Plantation, and by the way  I Love Peach Tea it is one of my favorites. :) Have a Great day!

I would say my hero would represent thousands now. It is Richard Wurmbrand. He has spotlighted what has been going on since the early church. He gave voice to Christians suffering in prisons all over the world. With technology today we hear jyst hours or a few days of what Christians are suffering. They are not thrown in a prison and forgotten about.
