#BookLaunch THISTLEDOWN – MIDSUMMER BEDLAM with River Mindshadow #NewBook — Thistledown Character: River Mindshadow

Hi all:

When Teagan Geneviene, blogger and writer extraordinaire, announced she was launching her new book (another one of her serials that finally becomes a full-fledged book), I had to join in the launch. I won’t say this book is one of my favorites (it is!), because I love them all, but Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam goes beyond the three objects contribution of bloggers and readers, and many of the readers of the blog have become characters! Yes, I am one of them, but I’ve been sworn to secrecy, and will leave it to Teagan herself to explain it all.

December, 2019

Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam is ready to fly to your shelves!

Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam by Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene is now available in book form (Kindle and paperback). If you think you’re too old for a tale about faeries, it also has a dark side. For those who read the serial version at Teagan’s Books (blog), she added a little something to the ending that you haven’t seen.

Here’s Teagan to tell you a little about the story, as promised.

Olga, thanks so much for hosting the launch of my launch of Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam. It is a tale of faeries written for whimsical grownups, but suitable for children ages 8 and up.

In 2017, readers of my blog, Teagan’s Books, named many of the fairies (or faeries, as I prefer to call them). The characters are not based on the real people. They are just a way for me to recognize the people who followed Thistledown. Many people used a “fairy name key” based on their initial and month of birth. I remember completely discarding the chart to name River Mindshadow in honor of you.

Thank you, thank you. I am humbled and honored! And it was such fun!

River Mindshadow is a young faery who speaks her mind, and she’s loyal to her friends. That ended up getting her expelled from school, along with her friend, Bedlam Thunder. River has a knack for understanding how people think. She also has a counterpart who lives in a dark, colorless world that is parallel to bright and beautiful Thistledown. Her name is Rotten Soulfire. Although River and Rotten look alike, but their attitudes are at once similar and opposite. Also, Rotten Soulfire is part of a rebel group in the colorless world.

Here’s the Book Blurb

Thistledown ― Midsummer Bedlam, by Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene is a wildly whimsical tale of faeries. It was originally written for a grownup audience, but it is suitable for children ages eight and over.

Thistledown is a world of color and light. It has faeries, hummingbirds, and ancient books of magic. Bedlam Thunder is a misfit faery who is afraid of heights. She is also a seer who has terrible visions of a parallel world devoid of color and brightness. The hate and darkness of that colorless world is seeping into Thistledown. Will Bedlam and her friends be able to save their home?

Thistledown ― Midsummer Bedlam, with its radiant creatures and faeries will lift your imagination to new heights.

Thanks, Priscilla. You’re so right. She has the most wonderful imagination, and the skills and talent to bring it to fruition in her stories. She’s always been eager to bring her readers into the stories, but this was such a great idea, and the story is magical and full of surprises. A delight!

Thank you, Christoph! Yes, you know Teagan, and I love my character (well, my two characters!). And what a story! Have a wonderful Christmas! Love to Ryan, the girls, and to the whole family! ♥

Oh, I’m such a slacker… I apologize, Olga. I kept watching for the notification from WordPress, and it never came. I was under the weather, so not thinking well either.
Heartfelt thanks for hosting the launch. It means more to me than you would know. <3 Thank you, thank you. Wishing a very merry Christmas to you and yours. Hugs on the wing!

Don’t worry, Teagan. It’s the silly season. I’m having trouble with internet and can only access through my mobile, so I’m sorry for not spreading the word more widely. I hope that everything might go back to normal after the holidays and I can catch up. Congratulations, good luck, thanks for the opportunity and for the wonderful dual character based on my faery name you included in your story, and Merry Xmas!

Thank you for everything you do, Olga. I’ve been plagued with Internet and WordPress problems ever since I got to New Mexico. Now Santa brought me a lovely head cold. LOL. I’ll look like Rudolph soon. 😀

Anyhow, I’m going to link back to this post Saturday with the new episode of The Delta Pearl. Merry Christmas. Hugs!

I’ve heard about your problems and I hope the cold decides to leave early for the holidays. One of my plugins broke my blog last week, but they’ve told me the technician will be here to check the internet tomorrow. Fingers crossed, although it’s a bank holiday here, so I’m a bit doubtful. Take care and get well soon!
