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:

Robbie, 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’d like to introduce your readers to Glitter Shimmerling.

Hear See Speak No Evil, by Robbie Cheadle

Glitter Shimmerling is a young faery who has a carriage powered by pink and purple chipmunks running inside wheels.  Glitter has a head full of shimmering lavender curls. Glitter and her friend Fleur Thistle help River Mindshadow find some information at the “Thisdledown Daily Trumpet” newspaper.

Glitter also has a counterpart who lives in a dark, colorless world that is parallel to bright and beautiful Thistledown.  Her name is Glare Phantasm.  Glitter and Glare look alike, but in behavior they are almost opposites. Also, Glare Phantasm is part of a rebel group in the colorless world. She even rides a fierce motorcycle (although the folks of Thistledown don’t have a word for the vehicle).

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.
