Great news, everyone!

The debut Jake Hawking Adventure story is now live on Amazon and ready to be downloaded to your Kindle or Kindle App.

Here’s a teaser for A Pirate’s Honor:

Jake Hawking recently got word that the governor of Havana has hired three bounty hunters to track and capture him and his crew. It’s not an unusual predicament for any pirate to find himself — a hunted man to the end of his days — but Hawking needs to get a grasp of the situation. These three bounty hunters are formidable on their own — their military feats as wide as the sea itself — but if the Spanish governor manages to persuade the lot to fly under a single banner it could make life a little more interesting than Hawking wishes.

He and his crew dock at the port-town of Kingston, Jamaica. Hawking has an informant there and if anyone knows where these three privateers are or might be heading it’s his old flame, Eve. But when they step on dry land Hawking notices the locals are less friendly than he remembers and two shadowy figures start following him through town. Have the bounty hunters cornered him already or is something more sinister at work? He finds out soon enough and he’ll need to act fast if he doesn’t want to find himself learning the steps to the gallows jig.

A Pirate’s Honor is a short-story sitting at approximately 5,600 words and is available via Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing for $0.99.

You can learn more about the character and the series in The Jake Hawking Adventures section.

A Pirate’s Honor is the first of three Jake Hawking Adventures I’m publishing this summer. Then they’ll be grouped together into a mini-collection with some extra bonus stories. The second story — The Royal Bounty Hunter — should come out at the end of July/beginning of August.

I hope everyone enjoys it. Give it a read and let me know what you think. I hope this to be the beginning of a very long career for the character.

Once again props to Peter Simeti of Painted Heros for the cover design.
