Cutthroats and Curses

Scrivener is coming into its own during the editing process of the forthcoming Anthology Club compilation Cutthroats and Curses – oh yes, that’s what the Pirate anthology is called now – Cutthroats and Curses: an anthology of Pirate Tales. The title is all down to you lot, of course, overwhelmingly preferring it over the other candidates in the recent poll. It’s a good title, too, all rousing and all-iterative.

Have a butcher’s at the screenshot below (clicky clicky if you want to see it up close) and you’ll see that we have eleven rattling good yarns of sea battles, maps, and hidden treasure, as well some whoa-making surprises that would no longer be surprises if I told you about them. Established authors like Marissa Ames, Lisa Shambrook and Alex Brightsmith are joined by newcomers such as Boyd Miles and Stephen Coltrane. Oh, and me, trying to be funny again. It’s all very exciting.

That’s not the final order of stories, by the way; I’m still shuffling them about, balancing light against dark, action against calm, Beth against Eric. Scrivener makes handling such a wriggling sack of writers a dream with its corkboard, colour coding and inbuilt writer’s tools. I’m right enjoying myself, which is as it should be. You’ll right enjoy this an’all when it comes out.

A Yorkshireman in the green hills of Lancashire, UK Not a real wombat, obviously, or typing would become an issue. I do have short legs and a hairy nose, however. Oh, & a distinctive smell.
