ahoy the ship, permission to come aboard?

Post by kujakupoet » Sun January 16th, 2011, 6:36 pm

Hello. I just joined the forum. I'm M. Kei, author of the gay nautical adventure series, Pirates of the Narrow Seas. I'm a poet and tall ship sailor in real life. I have posted pictures of my ship here: picasaweb.google.com/kujakupoet, including photos of the ship's cats, which seem to be the most popular topic for some reason.

I'm interested in finding forums or books about the Age of Sail, hopefully with gay characters, although I'm currently reading several 19th century nautical novels. They weren't 'historical fiction' at the the time they were written, but they are now.
