#TuesdayBookBlog THE THREE THINGS SERIAL STORY by Teagan Geneviene (@teagangeneviene) and GLIMPSES by Hugh Roberts (@HughRoberts05) Two irresistible new books by fabulous fellow bloggers.

Hi all.

I usually share new books on Fridays, but I’ve decided to take advantage of the #TuesdayBookBlog tag and try and bring a bit more attention to two books that fellow bloggers I admire have published very recently. Although I haven’t read the books in their book form yet, both of them have also shared their stories, either in their totality or some of their content, on their blogs, so I can recommend them both hand in heart.

Here they come…

 

 

 

The Three Things Serial Story by Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene

The Three Things Serial Story: A Little 1920s Story by Teagan Geneviene

The Three Things Serial was a spontaneously written (“pantser”) story. Everything in it — characters, setting, plot, was driven by “things” left by readers of the blog Teagan’s Books, episode by episode.

It quickly became a 1920s Mystery with armature sleuth, Pip, telling the story. Pip is determined to be a modern woman, a flapper.

Everything about this story was determined by the random “things” readers sent. Absolutely nothing was pre-planned. First came the narrator, Pip, aka Paisley Idelle Peabody. I imagined the voice of Lucille Ball as Pip, telling a story of her youth. Then came the 1920s setting, inspired by oscillating fan. Next the “things” brought characters, particularly Andy who came back for another serial. Eventually a thing gave me the Florida setting. I think you get the idea of how this worked.
Pip, a modern woman — a flapper, begins the first of several adventures. In this story a mysterious white-haired woman is kidnapped. Pip finds a bent key, a scrap from a special quilt, strange tattoos and other “things.” Later, Pip and her friends find themselves on a luxurious yacht where they encounter figures from history and celebrities of the era. The mystery comes to the forefront when they reach the destination, the gilded mansion, Ca d’Zan.

While it was not great literature, it sure was a fun ride! Many readers asked me to provide the serial as a book, and that’s what I’ve done with this novella. So sit back and enjoy the Three Things Serial.

Teagan Geneviene author

Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene, a southerner by birth, was “enchanted” by the desert southwest of the USA when she moved there. She had always devoured fantasy novels of every type. Then one day there was no new book readily at hand for reading — so she decided to write one. And she hasn’t stopped writing since.

Her work is colored by her experiences in both the southern states and the southwest. Teagan writes many types of fantasy, from what she likes to call “quest type” fantasy, to urban fantasy, to fantasies with a dash of mystery. Her blog “Teagan’s Books” contains serial stories written according to “things” from viewers.

Major influences include Terry Brooks, David Eddings, Robert Jordan, and Charlaine Harris.

Glimpses by Hugh W. Roberts

Glimpses by Hugh W. Roberts

See all 2 formats and editions

After publishing some of his short stories on his blog, Hugh W. Roberts, who suffers from dyslexia, received numerous requests to publish his short stories in a book.

Here, at last, are 28 short stories that will take your mind on a rollercoaster of a ride into worlds that conceal unexpected twists and turns.

‘Glimpses’ allows the reader a peek into the lives of everyday people who are about to have life lead them on an unpredicted path. From a mysterious deadly iPad app, to a hole in the fence that is not all it seems, to a strange lipstick that appears to have a life of its own, you will encounter terror, laughter, sadness, shock and many other emotions on journeys which promise a thrilling and gripping climax.

If you are a lover of shows such as ‘The Twilight Zone’ and ‘Tales Of The Unexpected’, then you’re in for a real treat with this first collection of short stories from Hugh.

Dare you take a glimpse into the lives of these unsuspecting characters?

“If you’re looking for a thoroughly entertaining read, Glimpses is the book for you. Each story has been cleverly crafted; through Hugh’s wonderful imagination, he has the ability to whisk you away to many different worlds, past, present and future. Every story makes a compelling read and just when you think you know what’s going to happen next, Hugh masterfully reveals a brilliant twist. With bite-size and longer stories, Glimpses is a must-read. I loved it.” – Esther Newton, Writer, and Author.

Biography:

Hugh W. Roberts was born in Wales and returned to his homeland in 2016. Having lived in various parts of the UK, he spent twenty-seven years living and working in London, a city he loves very much. He’s also lived in Chepstow, in south east Wales, Hartlepool, in the north east of England, and Brighton and Hove, on the south coast of the UK. Despite the fact that he has dyslexia, Hugh was thrilled when he passed both his English Language and English Literature exams at school. He has always enjoyed writing, especially short stories, and was only persuaded to start publishing his work when he was introduced to blogging in February 2014. This was the catalyst that propelled him to fulfil one of his lifetime ambitions of writing and publishing a book. Still a very keen blogger, Hugh has built up a large following on his blog made up of family, friends, authors, and people from all over the world. He writes about everyday life, publishes some of his photography, and has even dabbled in writing poetry (one of the writing elements he finds difficult to do). His blog can be found at www.hughsviewsandnews.com Now living between the town of Abergavenny and the city of Swansea, Hugh shares his life with his civil-partner, John, and their Cardigan Welsh Corgi, Toby. He spends his days writing, reading, walking, cycling and likes to relax in front of the television with a glass of red wine. He’s always been a morning person and does most of his writing during the day. Hugh has already begun writing short stories for his next book, which he hopes to publish towards the end of 2017. In the meantime, he would really appreciate it if you would consider leaving a review on Amazon for this, his first short story collection.

I have had the pleasure of meeting Hugh Roberts in person (he’s a lovely man and an amazing writer), and although I haven’t met Teagan Geneviene in person, after following her blog and her serials, and having contributed to them on several occasions, I feel as if I knew her too. I’m very happy to see they’ve published their books, so the world at large can check their fabulous writing, and I hope you will.

Thanks so much to Teagan and Hugh for their books, thanks to all of you for writing and please, like, share, comment and CLICK!

I’ve been fortunate enough to win a paper copy of her book too! Fabulous! It’s always good to be able to promote other writers, especially when you know them from blogging and you know their writing. 🙂

Love the sound of Teagan’s book. The 1920s, Flappers, (Louise Brooks, anyone?) If I could be ‘born again’ that would be my era of choice, I am sure.
As for short stories with a twist, as I try to write those myself, I am sure that I would find Hugh’s book compelling.
Thanks for showcasing these, Olga. I wish both authors great success.
Best wishes, Pete.

Thanks, Pete. Teagan’s blog is a great one to follow, as one can participate in the unfolding of the stories. All are great (and a big challenge for the author) but I agree with you, it was an amazing era, for sure. Having read some of your stories, I’m sure you’d enjoy Hugh’s. Have a great week!

Thank you kindly, Pete. Creating the story-line based on random words (things) from others made for a different sort of novella, but it’s fun to relax and just “go with it.” Pip and friends ended up with two more serials that I mean to put into book form beginning next year. Huge hugs. 🙂

Thank you so much, Pete. It’s great to meet another writer who has a passion for short stories with a twist. I wish you much success with them and I do hope you’ll publish them in the future.
Best wishes,
Hugh

Heartfelt thanks for this lovely shout-out and endorsement, Olga. I’m delighted to be here with you and Hugh.
Everyone is invited to my blog this coming weekend for a 1920s blog party!
Have a terrific Tuesday. Hugs!

Olga, this is truly amazing. Thank you so much for featuring me and my book in this post with the wonderful Teagan, who I admire so much as both a brilliant writer and a friend.
It was lovely meeting you in person this year and I hope our paths will cross many times in the future. I really do appreciate all the support and encouragement you have given to me and my writing and I value our friendship very much.
Thank you so much.
With my very best wishes,
Hugh

Thanks so much, Hugh. I know I was one of the people who encouraged you to publish your stories and I am sure they’ll do very well. The publishing business is overwhelming, and it’s difficult to pace ourselves but I’m sure you’ll be all right. Hoping we’ll have plenty of chances to meet in the future. All the best.

Two wonderful and very talented writers. I have read both Teagan’s and Hugh’s work and have always been impressed by their imagination and creativity. Thanks for sharing information on their newly released books. 🙂
