J.M. Aucoin . Jake Hawking Adventures, Writing about writing 3285

Good news, everyone!

After lots of effort and tweaking, JAKE HAWKING & THE BOUNTY HUNTERS is now available on Amazon as an eBook and a Paperback.



Available in Paperback & Kindle

Here’s what readers can expect from the collection:

Jake Hawking — pirate, rogue, and scourge of the Spanish Main — is known for his quick blade and cunning wit. It’s earned him some friends in the Caribbean, but it’s also earned him his fair share of enemies.

The governor of Havana has hired three of the most dangerous bounty hunters in the West Indies to track and capture Hawking and his crew. It’s not an unusual predicament for a pirate to find himself — hunted to the end of his days — 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.

With the giant ex-slave Little Queen and the rest of Hawking’s crew aboard the snow-brig Broad-Wing, they’ll need every ounce of wit, sail, and steel if they’re to survive and out duel the bounty hunters.

Included in the Jake Hawking & the Bounty Hunters collection are the first three Jake Hawking short adventures — A Pirate’s HonorThe Royal Bounty Hunter, and Little Queen’s Gambit — previously only available as eBooks. This edition also includes a foreword by J.M. Aucoin, the original single story artwork by Peter Simeti, and four bonus pirate stories and swashbuckling poems:

  • Ye Be Oak, True as Oak
  • An Ordinary Night in Tortuga
  • The Throes of Providence
  • The Duel

Inspired by the swashbuckler tales of the early 1900s as well as the likes of Errol Flynn and Douglas Fairbanks, Jake Hawking & the Bounty Hunters will thrill readers with swordplay, daring, intrigue, and plenty of high adventure.
