Happy weekend and happy holidays, my chuckaboos! Between the launch work of the past two weeks (prep and actual launch) for Thistledown – Midsummer Bedlam, I was working hard. Now, I’m blessed to have a friend offer to do some handyman-type work around my house — things I’m not able to do. Now that’s a great Christmas present. However, with all those things, I haven’t had a minute to work on The Delta Pearl. I promise the steampund riverboat will be back next weekend.
Meanwhile Dan Antion at No Facilities, had done a delightful post about Thistledown. Dan has channeled the faery character named in his honor for my book. I hope you’ll click over and visit his post.
Keep reading, there’s more!
A Guest Post – by Carver Eastdoor I don’t often have guest posts on No Facilities, and I don’t often talk about fairy, excuse me ‘faerie’ stories. I stopped reading these stories many years ago. Of course, that was before I met Teagan Geneviene. Teagan has such a creative spirit and is such an amazing […]

Also, Sally Cronin has added Thistledown to the shelves of her virtual Café and Bookstore! Here’s a profile I gave Sally for the character that was named in her honor, Poppy Songbird.
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. Others already had a name in mind, while some (including Dan) let me make up names in their honor. Sally had a faery first name ready when I asked. So, I want to introduce “Poppy Songbird.”
Poppy Songbird is easy to spot because of her rich poppy-red hair. She wears flower shaped spectacles. Poppy has a strong weather sense, and she is perhaps the most dexterous flyer in Thistledown. She uses those skills to mind the colorful powderpuff sheep, which can’t fly, but can accidentally become airborne. If powderpuff sheep wrangling is a sport, then Poppy is a champion!
Thanks for taking time to meet Carver Eastdoor and Poppy Songbird. They are just two of the whimsical characters who live in Thistledown. It is a world of color and light. It has faeries, hummingbirds, along with dark faeries, and ancient books of magic. Now the evil of a parallel world devoid of color and brightness is seeping into Thistledown. Will Bedlam Thunder 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.
