Hello Adventure readers! It has been a few months since "Wings of the Pirate" has hit your e-reader and mailbox. Hopefully you were able to fit in into your summer reading schedule or possibly the warm tropical adventure is being saved for the chillier months ahead ... I have heard positive feedback from many of you but unfortunately few have put up a review on Amazon or Goodreads. It just takes a moment to click a star rating and leave a few short words, for example: "I liked it" or "What’s with the drunk monkey??"
Anyway, reviews can make or break a book, so if you’ve had the time to read it, please do me the great favor of leaving a review - good, bad or between.
If you love Western stories, my next novel due out in October is one you won’t want to miss! Familiar characters from one of my prior novels deal with familial loss and a newfound kinship that develops from tragedy. Performing the role of a parental protector can be a hard job on the western frontier.
Thank you for all your support,
Eric H. Heisner

Hello Adventure lovers!
Yes! May 29th was the official release date for "Wings of the Pirate". I have heard from many of you that have received copies and have already read the book. It’s a fun read for the beach, in the jungle, remote island or to take with you on your travels this summer. It would be great for all of you who have already been on the adventure to spread the word to others and leave a star ranking and a few words on Goodreads or Amazon. It really makes a difference and is much appreciated.
Thank you for being on this novel journey with me!

Hello Air Pirates!
Things are moving right along for "Wings of the Pirate". So far we are on schedule for a May 29th release with all ebooks and hardcover preorders going out several weeks before that. My good pal, Clint Beach at Attic Studio Productions has just completed a new updated cover and it has an even more exciting image than the previous one. Thank you to Ryan Pemberton at Pemberton & Sons Aviation for the use of the photo of their gorgeously restored Grumman Goose seaplane. Check out the "Wings of the Pirate" book page on Inkshares and we are also up on Amazon.
Cheers to finally getting this book on the path to publication!
Good News Air Pirates!!
I just received the first copyedit back from the assigned editor at Inkshares. Things are looking good. I have to dig into the manuscript and clean things up over the next 2 weeks of the Holiday season but it’s a job that is worthwhile in making a better book for everyone. We’re looking at a release date of May 2018 which is a great time to launch a female Indiana Jones type seaplane adventure in the South Pacific. I’ll keep you all updated as things finally start to develop.
Also check out my author page on Amazon.com for my Western novels and the new release of "Africa Tusk" - set in contemporary East Africa, one man defends the endangered population of elephants despite poachers and the influx of modern technology ...
Thank you all for your support!
Your dedicated Air Pirate Captain,
Hello Adventure Readers,
Well, the updates on "Wings of the Pirate" have been few and far between as it seems Inkshares is bogged down with a backlog of titles. I hear rumors that there are less than a dozen books ahead of me in line yet (better than 40 ahead of me about this time last year!) I will keep pushing Inkshares for a Publishing Date. They have released quite a few books this year that are nicely put together.
Well, if you thought it would be another Christmas without a new novel from your favorite Adventure writer, here’s some news - If I happen to be in the top 10 of your favorite Adventure/Western writers, this is great news!
Over the past year, I have been working on a contemporary African adventure tale that touches on the crime of ivory poaching and the possible use of drones as an anti-poaching tool. Get your safari garb on, grab a beverage and enjoy a good old fashioned adventure story - "Africa Tusk" is now available for purchase!

I will keep on Inkshares and push them to get "Wings of the Pirate" in your reading hands soon. Thank you all for your understanding and support!
Hello Air Pirates,
So it looks like Wings of the Pirate is somewhere in the middle of a long list of titles waiting to be published at Inkshares. The manuscript was polished and turned in with Illustrations back in January so I will keep on them. Thank you for all your faith and patience with this publishing adventure. If you like Westerns though, I just released a collection of short Western stories that is based on a Western Film I did a few years ago titled "Friend of the Devil". It is available in hardcopy or ebook at:
Hopefully Wings of the Pirate will be flying into your homes early this Fall...
Sincerely, your Seaplane Captain,
Quick bit of news - If you’re a Western Fan, there is a BookBub promotion going on for the ebook version of my 2nd Western Novel "T.H. Elkman". Get it on Amazon and other online retailers for $1.99 for a limited time. I am usually notified of these promotions beforehand, but yesterday I checked out the title on Amazon and the book had shot up in ranking to #109 out of over a million books. Not bad for a Cowboy writer with a passion for seaplanes!
No release schedule update for "Wings of the Pirate" yet. The small dedicated staff of Inkshares has us on the radar and will be moving it forward as soon as they can.
More info as I get it ...
