Some interesting titbits about The Wirral. However the writing was poor, jumbled and not worth the effort. Apologies to the author, but a creative writing course wouldn't go amiss.

Hector Hornsmith in Treasure of Treasures, Pt 1, a must read for pirates young and old 9 Nov. 2012
By Convoke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If you've read the Hector Hornsmith Diaries, or if you haven't, you're in for a treat with Treasure of Treasures, Pt 1 Ye Black Rock. This new book about Hector Hornsmith is a children's version(if your children are smart and lucky), or a lighter look for all of us at the pirate life as really it was. Illustrations are here and there, adding to the fun.

And more.... In Part 1, Ye Black Rock, a sharp mind and a steady hand at the helm are piloting you through a world of skulduggery that reeks with realism because a historian is bringing it to life. A scholar and a talented writer, Tony Franks-Buckley is unveiling this saga for us in pieces, a bit at a time. All you need know about piracy in English waters may not be here yet, but much more than you ever dreamed you'd learn is right before your eyes. And there are more tales to come.

Buckley has published much of his research in nonfiction works, also available on Kindle. Help yourself. This trove of nonfiction is an researcher's delight: authoritative, detailed, and above all, a fresh take on a beloved subject. Let's see: more novels to come, young adult tales, nonfiction monographs and treatises... If you've been craving better, more realistic pirates, Buckley will satisfy you. Perhaps inspire you.

And Buckley promises to soon deliver "The Torment of Tortuga," a major novel. Perhaps a franchise is developing here before our eyes. If you're like me, with a taste for adventure in your soul, once you've read Hector's Diaries, you'll be slavering for more. Highly recommended for young and old.
