Join the quest for a pirate’s gold in the anxiously awaited third installment of the international bestselling Matthew Connor Adventure series!
Ooh, I’m excited to announce that Matthew Connor is coming back for another adventure! A few months ago, I opened up a contest to my subscribers (another bonus of being on my newsletter is exclusive contests and giveaways) to suggest quests they’d like to see Matthew Connor go on. There were a lot of fantastic suggestions, but I chose Lawrence Wolf’s suggestion of the mythical pirate José Gaspar, nicknamed Gasparilla. He’s celebrated every year in Tampa, Florida, with the next event being in January of 2020.
Anyway, I thought I could have a lot of fun with this legendary buccaneer and have room for a ton of creative license. At the same time—and super important!—it would also give my readers an entertaining and exciting story! Who can say no to a swashbuckling good time?
Here’s what it’s about:
For centuries, the existence of Spanish pirate José Gaspar has been relegated to legend, but archaeologist and adventurer Matthew Connor and his friends may have just found reason to believe the buccaneer truly existed.
Rumored to have sailed and plundered the Gulf of Mexico and the Spanish Main during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, Gaspar would have amassed a vast fortune. But can Matthew and the gang prove myth as fact and find Gaspar’s priceless treasure? It will take courage and tenacity as the path to gold proves deadly—and even murderous once they discover the true identity and fate of the man nicknamed Gasparilla.
