Random Magic Tour: Pirates! – The Parting Glass

Tour summaries and a farewell song

Today’s the wrap day for Random Magic Tour: Pirates! (May

As one of the mates – ahoy, matey!  sailing with this crew of
buccaneers, would like to say thank you for visiting the blog on May 25
and hope you also enjoyed some of the other great
blogs on the tour.

This has been my first big blog tour participation and it has been such a great experience. I enjoyed every bit of it from research and posting for my stop to visiting my fellow bloggers on the tour (three cheers for the pirate crew!). I tried to visit as much as I could, although due to the time pressure I had really bad pirate manners of dropping in and out without saying hi (sorry, but you don’t want me commenting in a hurry, mates, there’d be a lot o’ typos).

I had so much fun, though, visiting blogs on the tour and all the features, from Mermaid’s Cove Musical Blog Hop to Pirate Queens series and Sea Wolves Reading Circle. Every paper doll was an eye-full and I learned some pirate vocabulary together with what you ought to watch out for while at sea, to mention just a few highlights of the tour. But really, every stop was wonderful and every feature timeless in itself. So, thank you, my fellow pirates for doing such a great job!

I want to thank Sasha Soren, the author of Random Magic, for inviting me on the tour. It is such a delight to know you and this tour has been an amazing experience for me.

At last, but not least: thank you, everyone, for visiting my stop. I hope you had a lot of fun doing so. Thanks for all the comments, I am so happy you took the time to drop me a line, I appreciate it.

And please don’t forget to visit other wrap-up posts on the tour, especially Rum + Plunder: Final tallies and Little Pirate Prizes: Final tallies begin (Winners announced: June 6). You still have time to enter to win Pirateology: Guidebook and Model Set!

For the wrap day of the tour, we’re just going to raise a final pint
o’ grog to say thanks for the good company. Smooth seas be ahead o’
ye. As this particular traditional toasting song goes, good night and
joy be with you all!

Message in a Bottle: visit Liana's Paper Doll Blog to see the Pirate Queen Sasha and read more about her at Moonlight Gleam's Bookshelf.


  1. and a clink to you for a fun blog tour!

  2. The tour was so much fun! Cheers!

  3. Wailin Jennys! So cool that you featured them. They're one of my favorite groups. Have you heard their new album Bright Morning Stars? I love it.

  4. Cheers everyone!

    @ Alison: I actually have only come across Wailin Jennys, but I really like them, I'll have to hear some more of their music. Thanks for the tip.

  5. Way late on my commenting ... sorry. Very nice post -- and nice song here! :)

  6. There is something haunting about hearing women sing this song - very sad-sounding!

    I'm glad you had fun on the tour - it was pretty fun to go through!

    Happy reading!


Don't hesitate to drop me a few strange new words! I'd love to hear what you think!
