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.

Denise, 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 2016, 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 honor the people who followed Thistledown. Many people used a “fairy name key” based on their initial and month of birth.

When I announced the book version, I brought the name charts out for new readers, and you obligingly named a faery. If there is a sequel, she would have a fun part. So, I want to introduce Flora Rainbow to your readers.

Fairy by Sophie Gengembre Anderson (1869)

Flora Rainbow wears a crystal “point” earrings. The crystals have a rainbow colored aura. Whenever Flora sneezes, her faery magic produces a cascading pile of various flowers that pile up as tall as she is. Flora is trying to figure out how to turn that problem into a benefit. Now if she can just learn to sneeze on cue…

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.

      1. Oops! I didn’t realize you had the sneezes lately, Denise. ^^’ I enjoy a little snarky irony, so I made Bedlam afraid of heights. I couldn’t resist the sneezes for Flora. 😀 More hugs!

    1. Thanks, Teagan. I’m always happy to have you visit. I am happy to meet Flora Rainbow. I feel a lot in common with her and the sneezing part…lol. I can’t wait to read this! Hugs right back.

    1. I’m always happy to have Teagan visit. It does sound like a fabulous read! Thanks for stopping by:)

    2. How lovely to see you, Gerlinde. I hope you are doing much, much better and ready to enjoy a nice Christmas season (hopefully “low key” so that you don’t push yourself too hard). 🙂 Thanks for your encouragement, my friend. Hugs on the wing!
