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 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.

Teagan is one of the most imaginative writers I’ve ever read. I encourage you to give her stories a chance- you won’t regret it!

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

Jacquie, 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 Cherry Breeze to your readers.

Prince Florimund finds the Sleeping Beauty, Wikipedia

Cherry Breeze is the most imaginative, romantic faery in Thistledown. She has a head full of cascading cherry-red curls. She lives next to the river and her faery magic brings to her particular rosy mollusks that contain pink freshwater pearls. That same magic also strings the pearls into necklaces and hair jewelry. Cherry doesn’t know who he might be, but she has a secret admirer who flutters into her window while she sleeps. He leaves arm-loads of pink and red wild flowers. Although he must be clumsy, because he usually turns over one thing or another as he leaves.

    1. Hi Mary. Thanks to Calico Rainbowforest for flying you over to Jacquie’s. I appreciate your support. I was looking for a red or pink (for cherries) fairy image when I saw that one in my file… then Cherry’s character came to life. Hugs on the wing!
