Thursday Doors — in Thistledown!
Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Bloggers around the world create their own Thursday Doors post each week. Beginning this week, Dan Antion is the new host.
Many of you know that Dan is my frequent “partner in crime” — he lets me use his photographs. I will continue to be a follower of Thursday Doors, rather than a participant. However, I’m doing a post today, to celebrate Dan’s new role.
Readers named characters for Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam, although sometimes I created the name for them (and a few already had their own faery name). The name game-chart I made gave back something absurdly inappropriate for Dan, so I named a character in his honor — Carver Eastdoor.
Thistledown – Midsummer Bedlam
Carver can magically get wood to take whatever form he wants. I used Dan’s photo above to represent a special gateway door Carver made. However, a family heirloom, a huge battleax, comes into his possession. You’ll have to read the book to learn more about that — and the fate of the beautiful candy door.
Bedlam Thunder (the heroine) is a seer, and that ability takes her through several strange and unexpected doors. Slide show below.
For those of you who weren’t around when it was a serial, Thistledown is a wildly whimsical tale of faeries. However, lest you think you’re too old for that stuff, it also has a dark side.
Universal Purchase Links
These links should work to redirect you, no matter what country.
For the anti-Amazon among us, I’ve uploaded the book to Kobo. They say it’s available, but it doesn’t show up on my searches, and neither do I as an author… I can’t say I’m happy with my two experiences with them.
Congrats again to Dan. Happy December, everyone.
Hugs on the wing!
