"booty booty booty booty--"

I’ve noted the word booty is unusually frequent in the letters sent to me. Not absurdly so, but the word is certainly overrepresented in relation to daily use. The word is essentially unheard of in everyday conversations yet I have received several letters containing it.

Could it be I have an inordinate amount of pirate followers? They are after all the ones who generally talk the most about booty. If so, that’s certainly interesting, although unexpected. Pirates aren’t exactly the sort of ponies I’d imagine would commonly be readers of my newsletter.

I suppose it does make sense that ponies who are out at sea for long stretches would love reading. One has to do something to pass the time, and reading is great for that! Perhaps that is something we have in common, hence the interest.

If I do have many pirate followers, keep in mind there is so much more to write about than just booty, even if that may be your primary focus. I obviously cannot condone any illegal activities, but there are many things we can discuss beyond those. I have some experience within the field, and I’m quite the navigator. I could also suggest some books to take along on your ship.

I suppose this isn’t an answer to the letter, but there really wasn’t anything to answer. It did get me thinking however, so it did fulfill a useful purpose!

ay yo please don’t download PDFs of my books from book pirating websites. shit like that destroys authors’ careers. even if a book has a big following, if too many people pirate it, the publisher won’t think it’s sold well, and they can take the book out of print, or discontinue a series, or even drop an author. 

it’s called book piracy. it’s illegal. if you haven’t got money, please go to a library, or save up if you can. thank you friends
