Pirates to Plunder the Book and Television World

May 22, 2013

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Move Over Vampires; “Entertainment Tonight” has called 2013 the year of the Pirate. The trend begins in late May with the release of PIRATE’S PLUNDER, an Adele Bonny Adventure (Bellekeep Books/Midpoint Trade, May 23). Pirate’s Plunder chronicles the historical adventures of pirate Anne Bonny and her fictional niece Adele Bonny, thirteen generations later who team together to solve modern day pirate loot retrieval cases throughout the Caribbean. The first book in the Adele Bonny trilogy, Pirate’s Plunder is now available on Kindle, Nook, iTunes, Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com and Barnes and Noble and selects independent bookstores.

The trend continues into the fall as John Malkovich stars as the notorious pirate Blackbeard in the new NBC series Crossbones. And if that’s not enough pirate, Michael Bay (Transformers), has developed a new series Black Sails the prequel to the pirate classic book and movie Treasure Island for the Starz premium channel.

But leave it to a woman to sail first. New York Times best-selling celebrity non-fiction author Wendy Wilkinson has taken her work in a new direction with her debut work of fiction, Pirate’s Plunder, the first book in a trilogy, which will be available in stores and online May 23. Set in the glamorous Bahamas, Pirate’s Plunder introduces readers to the pirate life of Adele and Anne Bonny, when Adele is faced with the daunting task of tracking down her own family fortune, while drawing survival tips from her long-lost relative.

Wilkinson first became interested in Pirates of the Caribbean six years ago when she co-authored MORGAN FREEMAN & FRIENDS, Caribbean Cooking For A Cause. Traveling extensively throughout the region, even owning a cottage in The Bahamas, she became fascinated with the history of Anne Bonny, arguably the most notorious female pirate who ever lived, and her lover, Captain Calico Jack Rackham.
