Winter Pyrates Way almost Sold Out! [Feb. 18th, 2008|08:53 pm]
The Pyrates Way
pyrateatlarge
We're down to two 64-magazine boxes of inventory for the Winter issue! OMG. . . we had a rush for Summer. . .so we bought an über-amount for Autumn. . .and although it was an expanded issue, it didn't do as well as we expected so we cut back a bit on the Winter order.

Winter may be the very first issue since the premiere issue that we have to order a second printing!

I really think it's all the PyrateCon stuff that's selling these things so fast. . . . heck the distributor has had them only for six days and already put in an order for a bunch more!

Huzzzah to m'fellow pirates for making us the #1 Selling independent magazine for two of our distributors. . . it's YOU that get the applause, mates.

Thank You.

Join us at PyrateCon 2008 when we give away full free issues of the Spring magazine to every guest and vendor at the convention! It's our way of saying thank you for your support as we continue on into our third year of publication and the only magazine created BY Pyrates FOR Pyrates!

Check out some of the Spring highlights with a full 16-page PyrateCon highlight including maps, itinerary, background information, and a with a "one-on-one" session with Scarlott Harlott, our Grand Marshall of PyrateCon 2008! (no, this has nothing to do with how hot she thought my tattoo was in LA the other weekend. . LOL. . . we're just friends.)

I have to give credit to good friend Clay and Capt. Dave who gave me one killer tattoo with The Pyrates Way logo dead center of the art. . . doesn't get more pyratical than that!

Back to PyrateCon. . . . The Pyrates Way caravan of vehicles leaves Delaware to MD then DC and onward to an overnight in Roanoke, VA. The we're on the road to Nashville for another overnight (and to kidnap the best wench photographer in the world, Craig) then in The Big Easy a day early to help the PyrateCon folks set up. We give back to the pyratin' community in every way possible.

The Pyrates Way will be set up in the main lobby next to the registration booth with our own animatronic robot "Aaaargyle" who has been heard from in the magazine but never seen before! Subscribers get to pull FREE booty from our huge treasure chest which includes prizes like DVDs, Pyrate Toys, Glasses, free subscriptions, and even $100 in cash!

We'll also be sponsoring both the Pyrate and Wench of the YEAR contests with prizes, trophies and the chance for each winner to see themselves on the cover of America's premier pyrate magazine. . . THE PYRATES WAY.

The Pyrates Way is also giving a portion of our ad revenue from the Spring issue to the charities of PyrateCon 2008 and including subscription/back issues packs as auction items AND giving FOUR original acrylic paintings to be auctioned! Each one of these paintings has been or will be the back cover to The Pyrates Way magazine! (including Autumn07, Winter07-08, Spring08, & Summer08 issues). Own a piece of pyrate history when you bid on any of these great items for a great cause!

But our Spring Issue just begins with PyrateCon 2008. . . we also include the history of Jean Lefitte. . . . an article about where New Orleans folks go for the best food. . . sights of pyracy outside of pyratecon to see. . . and as we've been giving you for three years. . . Hot Wenches (five beautiful ladies who don't need a lot of Photoshop to be beautiful), A feature about a rum you might not know of, Re-Enactor's Corner, The most up-to-date and authentic pyrate events calendar anywhere, reviews of pyrate DVDs, Music, Books (and in Summer, we'll begin reviewing pyrate websites!), Crosswords, Jokes & Cartoons in our Lollygag section, and a Final Salvo dedicated to West Coast pyrates who've claimed just a piece of this old pyrate's heart.

All that plunder for FREE with your PyrateCon 2008 ticket. . . and that's just what we're offering. . . imagine all the other entertainment, lectures, food, rum, dancing, blackpowder, swords, wench auctions and an invasion of the French Quarter by all of our pyrate brethren.

I could go on, but my screen is covered in white-out.

The Autumn issue be at press mates and I should be approving the proofs tomorrow. It takes a few days to print. . . a few more in the bindery. . .then they ship out to the distributor and to us. M'wife and I do all the subscriptions by hand and your booty will be mailed separately this time. . . . because of it's size and bulk.

After all, it bein' our first year of success, we thought we'd share a bit of the booty with ye by giving you a nice piece piece that you can add to yer pyratin' garb and always think of us!

The Autumn issue be EIGHTY-FOUR pages this time. . .that's a full 20 pages bigger than any other issue. . .just to show our appreciation for your kind attendance to our magazine.

All we ask is if one of those advertisers therein be catchin' yer eye. . . please let 'em know you saw 'em in The Pyrates Way! Them thar advertisers is what keeps the magazine price from being raised and the quality of it kept so high!

Be on the lookout for "Savvy" a new (but obviously recognizable) character in this issue's "Grim Lookout" comic, as he appears throughout the margins of the later half of the issue. . . they breed like Tribbles,,, so I'm told.

The Winter issue will be back to the normal 64 pages but we've got great stuff in store for ye. . . as we take a step back in time and look at the pyrate toys we had as kids! Tis a late-holiday tread due out the beginning of January, mates.

Keep yer powder dry, says I,

Helping out friends in The Pyrate Communities [Jun. 12th, 2007|01:15 pm]

Aye Mates,

I try not to email you too often about advertising in the Pyrates Way.  I usually just send out "feelers" on a monthly basis.

However, something major has changed in our Pyrate community in a big way and we've had to redesign a major article in our Summer issue to compensate.

PyrateCon2008 will be managed by a new group of folks instead of the IPS who attempted to run the conference this year.

The new management has already hired an event coordinator and that of itself is an incredibly positive step toward making the event better, stronger, and more fun.

To support this new group of folks, The Pyrates Way will give a full one-page advertisement to promote the event in every issue of the magazine until the event and then cover said event in our pages.

We're a wonderful community of businessmen, re-enactors, pyrates, and people.  If you were a vendor at PyrateCon2007 or will be in 2008, we will give you a 1/4 page advertisement wrapped around our PyrateCon2007 recap for only $200.

We have a limited space as of this time as we were about to go to press, but we'll put the mechanics of it all on hold in order to support the folks who supported each other (and us).

If you're interested in grabbing this last-minute deal, please email me at: publisher@pyratesway.com and I'll send you the link to get your adspace secured.

May your powder always be dry,

Steve "The Black Fox" Kimball

Aye maties, we spent a weekend in New Orleans at PyrateCon2007. . . expect a full write-up in our Summer issue (which is the last issue for ye plank owners, so ye better get over to http://www.pyratesway.com/resub.html so ye don't miss any issues to come!).

We also met over 1,000 fellow privateers in the pyrate haunt of Fells Point in Baltimore, MD last weekend where our Spring issue was a huge success. It contains a full article about how the Fells Point privateers saved our nation's collective butt in both the War of Independence and the War of 1812.

The Winter issue is still our biggest seller, chock full of wenches and information.

Of course, our premiere issue is still available and we plan to offer a special signed, sealed, and numbered version soon. If ye be waiting for a collector's item from ye olde Pyrates Way, it be coming mate, so keep yer slops on.

Thar also be a special ad campaign for the best visual ad in the Summer issue with lots of free ad space as a prize.

Don't forget that we run a bulletin board at http://piratesway.proboards98.com/ to discuss all things pyratical AND http://www.pyratesway.com/news.html has all the pyrate news world-wide and is updated daily!

Fair Winds and Following Seas, mates.
