With this week theme being a cover that depicts something dealing with death, the idea of zombies or something with a battlefield did come to mind immediately, but when then I was causing through my book and saw Pirate Latitudes. Personally, when I think of pirate, death isn’t the first thing that comes to mind, but one of the first thing does is their plan – which has a skull and cross bones!
