Wild Rover No More: Being the Last Recorded Account of the Life & Times of Jacky Faber by L.A. Meyer
Dear Jacky Faber fandom on Tumblr,
I am a weirdo who doesn’t really like to engage with my fandoms on the internet overly much, so I tend to be late to the party when it comes to releases of my favorite things (I JUST found out via NPR that my all-time favorite band got back together for a new album releasing in 2 weeks?), but every March I do make it a habit to pre-order the new Jacky Faber book, if I can find it, and have done for 10 years now.
That’s 10 years of Bloody Jack…
Anyway, I found the newest on Amazon today and the title basically confirms that it is the last in our dear heroine’s saga. And it’s going to be released on November 4th.
So here’s the link if you, too, want to pre-order it ASAP the way I do, and potentially lock in some sweet Amazon pre-order discounts. And if you also failed to remember to disable Prime before it renewed at the regular (not student) rate, so you want to be sure to make use of free 2-day shipping this year…（ ；´Д｀）

Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer
“It’s easier bein’ a boy, ‘cause when someone needs somethin’ done like holdin’ a horse, they’ll always pick a boy ‘cause they think the dumbest boy will be better at it than the brightest girl, which is stupid, but there you are.”
This thing is crazy good.
When I was 12 my sister started something that would prove to become somewhat of a routine between us-
she practically forced me to read a book.
I mean she. would. not. let. up. I was already an unhappy kid at this point and having my older sister constantly bugging me was annoying as hell. Eventually after a month (& while faced with a 5 hour car ride) I relented and agreed to read the book.
~ and a love affair began ~
I within the next week I had read up to In the Belly of the Bloodhound, that being all that was out at the time. I didn’t just read them, I read and reread until I could recite all of my favorite parts by heart, could answer any question someone might ask, to this day I have the first passage of the the prologue memorized.
and after that I waited those agonizing months for the next book to come out, and the next, and the next. I checked the website constantly, which we all know is a major disappointment 99% of the time, just hoping that maybe this time will be it, damn near praying for an update. I scoured the Bloody Jack Boards for new info and read until my books fell to pieces (literally my first copy of UtJR is in like 4 pieces, I’ve since bought a new one.)
You know- I’ve gotten way off topic, I’ll stop here. But here’s a little ship for getting this far.

What Would Jacky Do?

Hey, this is for anyone interested in a Piratical RP that’s lacking our dear girl’s charming presence. Any inquires should be directed to Captain Barbosa. Have fun and RP on!
