Público al que se apunta
Adult males who enjoy historically accurate fiction (fans of Bernard Cornwell). The book avoids common stereotypes like parrots, peg-legs and eye-patches. It is as true to the era as possible and most of the ships, dates, events and major characters are real in some degree or another.

Bold title with author's name slightly smaller with artwork to reflect the subject matter. My overall aim is to tell an adventure tale about the lives of pirates and seafaring men (including blacks/slaves) which is historically accurate and avoids common/prevalent pirate stereotypes. It is an adventure story and there are two pirate flags associated with Bartholomew Roberts which are described in the narrative.
Lo que debe evitarse
pirate stereotypes and anything suggesting that this is a romance novel.
these are the two flags used by Roberts and mentioned in the book
