Welcome everyone. The faery serial, Thistledown – Midsummer Bedlam is on hiatus until December. However, I’m reblogging past episodes for new readers and for those who want to review or catch-up on missed chapters.

I also have a category button on the right side-bar of the screen for “Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam.” However, these days I can’t make promises about WordPress behaving as it should. (For several days I found myself unable to comment on any blogs — including my own! WP just told me to email somebody else… Finally and laboriously got it fixed myself.)
