Thursday A Little Personal – Twiggy and Lucy Learn about Teagan’s New Book

Twiggy and Lucy

“Hey, guys, come here.”

“Yes, boss. You might have to call Twiggy twice.”

“What’s up?

“You both know the writer Teagan R. Geneviene.”

“We have heard you talk about her books, Boss.”

“Yeah, when you aren’t talking about your own.”

“Good one Twiggy. Uh Twiggy?”

“Don’t mind her boss. She has the attention span of a gnat.”

“Well, we are helping to introduce Teagan’s latest book.”

“Gee Lucy. Maybe we can con Teagan into some treats.”

“Well, gang here is Teagan’s latest. It’s called Dead of Winter – Journey 1 Forelorn Peak.”

“I already like the sound of that. How about you, Lucy?

“I think the cover is terrific. What is the book about?”

“Well, here is a little about the book. I’ll read the blurb.”

Dead of Winter takes place in a fantasy world that resembles some countries in the past of our own world. In this monthly series, we travel through many lands, each with a distinct culture. The adventure begins in the Flowing Lands at Forlorn Peak.

The Brethren are fanatics who gradually took over the Flowing Lands. They say all beliefs, but theirs are heresy. Women are little more than property. Emlyn is only twelve, but to the Brethren, she is an abomination. Why? She can see ghosts and other things. That’s a secret she can admit only to her teacher, Osabide.

The stronger Emlyn’s ability gets, the harder it is for her to hide it. Now she has also gotten a supernatural warning that she knows is not about the weather, “Winter is coming!”

As the veil between the world of the living from the realm of the dead deteriorates, the danger accelerates. Journey with Emlyn as she explores her world in Dead of Winter.

“That sounds like a winner. I certainly would put that on my TBR if I had one.”

“You don’t have to worry about a TBR Little One. You can’t read anyway.”

“That is true for sure, Lucy. Where can those who do read find this book?”

“Here are the universal links Twiggy.”

Paperback: relinks.me/B08R7RH4F5

“One last thing. Teagan will be releasing the series monthly, so everyone should keep an eye out for future issues.”

 

“I, for one, want to wish Teagan the best with her series.”

“Me too, Little One. Her stories are always so good.”

“How do you know? You can’t read.”

“The boss reads them to me.”

“Hey, wait a minute. I call it unfair. When’s my turn?”

“When you can stay up past eight o’clock.”

“Oh. Well, okay. Tell us a little about Teagan.”

“Here’s her bio and a short video.”

Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene lives in a “high desert” town in the Southwest of the USA.

Teagan 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 from living in the southern states and the desert southwest. Teagan most often writes in the fantasy genre, but she also writes cozy mysteries. Whether it’s a 1920s mystery, a steampunk adventure, or urban fantasy, her stories have a strong element of whimsy.

Founder of the Three Things method of storytelling, her blog “Teagan’s Books” contains serial stories written according to “things” from viewers. http://www.teagansbooks.com

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

    2. Hi Dale. Thanks so much for commenting. It’s a fantasy but not too heavy on magic. It’s certainly more of a story that has ghosts than a ghost story. Even though I call the monthly installments “Journeys” because the characters travel across the complex world I created, it’s also very much about the journey and the obstacles they overcome in reaching the conclusion (which will be approximately a year from now as far as the duration of the series). Have a beautiful weekend. Hugs on the wing!
