Podcast Notes

  • We kick things off with Tricia Levenseller’s elevator pitch for Daughter of the Pirate King.
  • Tricia shares where she got the idea for Daughter of the Pirate King and what a typical day in the life of Tricia looks like.
  • We find out what kind of writer Tricia is and what the (longgg) publishing process was like for her.
  • Tricia lets us know about some of her research for the series, including a very interesting Pirate story! And she gives us plenty of deets about her research trip to the bahamas:

  • We dish swoony AF Riden, the other characters, and the awesome banter in Daughter of the Pirate King.
  • Tricia shares her favorite scene from the book. Spoiler: It’s one of our favorites, too!
  • We find out which character Tricia would love to introduce Alosa to, and we beg her to write fanfiction for this pairing!
  • We play Two Truths and a Lie with Tricia. Which makes us love her even more.
  • We find out what Tricia would include in a letter to her 17 year-old-self.
  • Tricia talks about some of her favorite characters from other people’s books, some of her most-loved underappreciated books, and gives us a glimpse into her TBR. Things take a crazy turn, and we start contemplating being #teamjames. Or nah. Tricia also really tortures Meg with the number of times she slips the “W” word into this episode.
  • We wrap things up with a fun word association game.

There will be plenty of time for me to beat him soundly once I’ve gotten what I came for.

Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map—the key to a legendary treasure trove—seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.

More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate, Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.
