Eamonn Cottrell and Brian Stallings began crafting their first fantasy novel, Jon Swansong and the Pirata Isle in and around the years 2010-2011. It was born in conversation and developed initially through brainstorming sessions between the two authors' work schedules. The last quarter of 2011 and all of 2012 saw most of the actual story development and writing as the once foggy idea began to be a reality.
It is the story of Jon Swansong and his adventures across the mysterious Escando Seas as he discovers his destiny aboard an ancient Pirata Ship. He is caught in a magical power struggle between the Tainted One and the last of the Piratas, and only when it is too late to turn back does he realize that he is the key to it all.
