Blimey! The Buccaneer Blogfest sure snuck up on me! Capn’s Sharon Bayliss and Courtney Young thought up this wild, swashbuckling ride and there’s still time to sign up! Just click on one of their linky links or yer may be trapped in Davy Jones’ Locker forever;-)
First on board is to introduce meself to ya’s. Well this one is smooth sailing fer me since me had ter write & submit an Author’s Bio last month to Curiosity Quills Press. Here’s what me came up with me fellow saucy wenches:
Jamie Ayres writes young adult paranormal love stories by night and teaches young adults as a public school teacher by day. When not at home on her laptop or at school, she can often be found at a local book store grabbing random children and reading to them. So far, she has not been arrested for this. She lives in southwest Florida with her prince charming, two children (sometimes three based on how Mr. Ayres is acting), and a basset hound. She spent her youthful summers in Grand Haven, Michigan and this setting provided the inspiration for her debut novel, 18 Things. She really does have grandmothers named Olga and Gay but unlike her heroine, she’s thankfully not named after either one of them. She loves lazy pajama days, the first page of a good book, stupid funny movies, and sharing stories with fantastic people like you.
Part 2 of today’s quest includes following each other on our social media sights. Here me links be:
Now check back here every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during the month of July fer this grand nonstop joyride filled with more devilish fun than yer can ever imagine. I’ve got me own blood debt to pay now–off to visit me fellow buckos blogs. Yo-ho-ho . . . a pirate’s life for me!
Those would be difficult names for a kid here!
For sure, but it makes for funny book material;-)
Hhaaa! My kids and I just re-watched all three Pirates of the Caribbean movies last week. Arrrr.
What a fun blogfest!
So nice to learn more about you! so, what subjects do you teach?
All of them:-) Mainly intensive reading . . . usually have a few autistic kids too! Keeps life interesting!!
We watched 3 today . . . one more to go:-)
Nice to meet you Jamie. Great use of “Pirate speak,” I wasn’t at all that brave. 😉
HA! That’s what Google is fer, right matey?!
Cool pirate jargon. Kinda reminded me of that app on facebook where you can change the language on your page to pirate and it’s fun for, like, a day until you’re ready to pull your hair out!! Arrrr! 😉
Arrgh! I’ll be checkin’ yer blog fer treasures this month, matey!
Nice to meet you Jamie, I loved your writer’s bio. I’ll be checking back to read more about you and your novel as the fest progresses.
Nice bio, Jamie 🙂 Our Captains are indeed hard-workin ladies, and I look forward to seeing what their festism inspires in the way of posts 😉
Jamie, I love when you read out loud. Feel free to grab me anytime. 🙂 I have never heard you refer to Dan as Mr. Ayres – I kinda like it – and as for your teaching young adults, they’re getting a smidge older this year… but still young, young, young adults! Hehehehee…
I always refer to him as Mr. Ayres to my students:-)
Hi Jamie! Nice to *meet* ya! 🙂
Hey Jamie. Awesome bio. Kinda makes me want to resubmit mine to CQ now. It sucks!!! I was in the same Wilde Fire Contest as you and I loved your entry. Can’t wait to read your book and go through the publishing journey together 🙂
I love getting to learn even more about you! Great fact about your grandmothers. 🙂
Great details… am now following you on Pinterest:)
Thanks! I just joined last month:-)
Does the expression … slightly cracked down the middle … ring in your ears, Jamie? Aye, me thinks you are one saucy maid. I enjoyed your bio, your six sentence Sunday … now I will await the next “voyage” on your leaky vessel 🙂
Hi Jamie! I met you in another blog hop, and it’s nice to meet up again. Congrats on publishing your novel. Yay. I just sent you a friend request on Goodreads!
I LOVE YOUR BIO!!! It is so cute especially the part about your hubby acting like one of your kids. 🙂 Welcome aboard, Matey! Arg!
