Plundering the Romance Novel by Ionia Martin

Plundering cover

If you should feel so inclined to purchase

Description: A silly, satirical romp into the land of romance novels and pirate adventures, full of romance clichés and humour. This book is a short novella, just over 10k words.

Have you ever wondered what goes on in the minds and hearts of romance novel heroes and heroines? No? Good, because this book won’t be helpful with that at all.

If romance clichés drive you mad and you like Monty Python style humour, this may be the perfect book for you.

From the twisted mind of a sometimes writer and lifelong reader, you are certain to have less brain cells than you started with after reading this book.

Captain Stormy is the typical romance hero/villain archetype. He follows the Romance Hero Handbook to the letter, but he is about to figure out that nothing in his guidebook is going to prepare him for the trials he’s about to face.

Uncooperative heroines, lack of treasure, severely delayed sex scenes, a missing crew and an old man’s butt cheeks later, Stormy has a story to tell you.

Even pirates have bad days.

*contains some mature themes and language

  1. This is an amazing cover, and a truly inspired idea. I can think of no one more appropriate, experienced, and able to write a book so funny and incisive. I love it. I think that it is incredibly well written and spoofs the genre to perfection.

  2. Reblogged this on S.K. Nicholls and commented:
    Need a laugh? Here’s a 99 cent novella written by one of the wittiest women on the internet. Sure, she’s been all tangled up in a heart wrenching romance of her own, but she’s penned this piece making light of the genre. Support our favorite book reviewer and pick up a copy today.
