Spawned from an ancient promise, treachery and intrigue follow the protagonists through our world and one lost to the waves. Bound by an invisible bond, they are thrust into a fantastical world of pirates and demons.

James Benedict is a just man haunted by evil. Pushed to the edge, everything stripped from him, a new man arises . . . a man whose name strikes fear into the hearts of all who hear it: "Captain Hook".

Eileen Davis was a timid woman. Through a fateful cruise she finds herself in the company of the Captain of the Mistral Thief. With his guidance, and the meddling of the local barista, she eventually finds her inner strength.

Will the two of them unite through time to fulfill the promise of their ancestors or will tempers ignite leading all to failure?

True love's magic is not to avoid changes,
But to navigate them successfully.

1) Think about what you want on the map. Lucky for James Benedict, his photographic memory came in handy when it came time to recall the directions to the island called Neverland.

2) Choose a piece of paper, white is fine, and any size you’d prefer. Begin to draw your map, but make sure to use compass points, notes, labels, etc. Maps with few labels are useless.

3) Tear around the edges of the map, making each of the sides jagged and uneven.

4) When your map is complete and the edges are torn to your liking, it’s time to dye it. The best method is to use tea, or a tea bag, in order to stain the paper. Taking the damp tea bag, “paint” the map. You can allow it to dry and return to “paint” again, darkening the color as much as you’d like. Personally, I prefer a darker brown.

5) Now to create wear. You can crumple up the map now, or wait until the map has dried. Either way, roll it up into a ball and then reverse the process to see how it looks. Remember, this is your map, so it’s up to you as to how many wrinkled you’d like.

6) Once the map has dried, I’ve found that to create an even further weathered look, spot it with oil. Remove the excess oil and let the map dry.

That’s all there is to it! Once your map is complete and dried, you can display it alongside a copy of Second on the Right. And, if you’re lucky to have won the Scottish Dirk, your piratey centerpiece will be complete!


About Elizabeth Los

I began writing fan fiction short stories in 2010 as means of escape. Every night, after ten hours of work and once the children were finally tucked in bed, for the fifth time, I would sit at my laptop and let my imagination flow through my fingers. Typing over eighty words per minute, my stories quickly began to form from novellas into full length novels. I used writing as my therapy, my release for stress.
