This is the A.J.Meerwald, New Jersey’s official tall ship. She’s a Delaware Bay oyster schooner, once used to hunt for oysters off the coast of the state. She’s what I pattern the Esther Reed after in my sequel to Wanted: Wife, or at least the sample from which I was showing you above, My Dear Captain. It’s a work of fiction of course, but today it became just a bit more real, and even more tomorrow, when this announcement is slated to appear in Publishers Marketplace:
Gwen Jones’s WANTED: WIFE next two titles in series. Book Two tentatively titled MY DEAR CAPTAIN, about a billionaire playboy who unwittingly falls for the only female captain in his shipping fleet. To Nicole Fischer at Avon Impulse, in a two-book deal, for publication in September 2014, by Marisa Corvisiero at Corvisiero Literary Agency (World).
Can’t say you didn’t hear it here first!
