Atonement, Tennessee Q&A with @TeaganGeneviene the Southern Voice.

Ronovan and I had briefly discussed the concept of a “southern voice” in writing. That led to this interview. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
By the way — I can’t resist adding an aside…
Since I tell parts of the novel through the eyes of my heroine’s cat, people often ask me about my kitties and cats in general. Lest I come across as a “crazy cat lady with a lot of cats” let me just say… That’s only half right — I only have two cats. 😉 (winks)
Have a marvelous Monday my friends.

RW: Tell us about Atonement, Tennessee.Orange LinkedIn 6-18-2014TEAGAN:  It always seems simple in my head, but describing it never is.  Atonement, Tennessee is a tiny fictional town where a lot of strange things happen.  The novel is an “urban fantasy” – set in the current day of our real world, but with magical elements.  I also added a mystery subplot to the fantasy.The story is inspired by (but not based on) ancient Celtic/Welsh mythology, particularly the myth of Gwydion fab Don.  I give sneaky little nods to the myth in some of the characters’ names (such as Guy Fabdon).  If you’re a person who responds well to visual information, I have a modest book trailer.  Because of the mythology that motivated me, I put a lilting Celtic tune with the trailer — it will give you a good idea of the story.The heroine, Ralda Lawton, short for…

    1. Oh my goodness! Thank you Christine. I take it you mean the paperback. I’ve been very pleased with the print quality. (I hope they don’t let me down.) I went outside the “recommendations” and used my own format. It gives better readability without going to “large print” books.
      Anyhow, I sincerely hope you enjoy the story. Just let you imagination go and enjoy. Hugs! 😀


  1. Suzanne i want to frame this comment. ❤ Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
    I tried hard to let loose the part of my subconscious that writes on more than one level at a time. I'm so happy to know that it worked. Huge hugs my friend. 😀


  2. I thought it was a fantastic interview Teagan and I am really loving Atonement. I’m almost done. It’s one of those books that you will want to read over, it’s so intricately woven I think a second reading will reveal even more than the first time. Beautifully written, great story and characters.


  3. Really interesting interview Teagan, as an English person I always find Southern stories very sensual, in terms of the language and setting. It probably started from me reading Anne Rice when I was a teenager!
