You aren’t mistaken — this is an extra post from me this week.  Everyone has been so gracious and generous  with my book launch for Dead of Winter: Journey 1, Forlorn Peak that I’m bursting with gratitude… and blog posts. 

Thursday Doors

Thursday Doors is now hosted by Dan Antion.  Today Dan has done a truly marvelous Doors post inspired by Dead of Winter at his blog.  I do hope you’ll click over and visit.  The image above (or the photo part anyway) is just one of the wonderful photos he took in multiple photo-shoots for his post.  All the images reminded Dan of things in Journey 1, Forlorn Peak.  It means so very much to me when any reader thinks of my story after they have finished turning the pages of the book! Thank you, Dan!

Also, I’m still glowing from the wonderful reviews, including those from Robbie Cheadle and Mark Bierman.

Doors to Scary Stuff

Now to the Teaganizations of doors for Thursday Doors.

I describe Dead of Winter as more of a fantasy that includes ghosts than an actual ghost story.  Author, Roberta Eaton Cheadle (known and loved as Robbie to many of us) has some truly scary ghosts.

Margaret goes to live with her grandfather at his ancient inn.  Phantoms congregate at the inn, hoping she can free them from the clutches of Hugh Bigod, the 12th century ghost who has drawn them away from Heaven’s White Light in his canine guise.

Subject A36 by Teri Polen. Door tomfoolery by Teagan

Teri Polen authored this extraordinary story.  Subject A36 is frightening in a different way.  If genetic engineering could guarantee you and your family perfect health and unparalleled beauty, would you pay top dollar for it? Would you kill for it? Residents of the Colony would. And do. Seventeen-year-old Asher Solomon and his team have rescued countless hostages, saving them from painful deaths in Colony labs as desirable genetic traits are stripped from their bodies.  Asher and his team embark on their riskiest mission ever, and the stakes have never been higher. But even if he survives the physical dangers, the devastating secrets he uncovers might destroy him.

Vanished by Mark Bierman. Doors tomfoolery by Teagan

Some horrifying stuff is all too real.  Mark Bierman penned a story of tragedy and heartache.  How much more can Tyler Montgomery and John Webster take? This missions trip, the “healing” one, has only added fresh layers of pain. Construction of an orphanage in Haiti’s northwest . . . yes. But a doomed rescue operation, human traffickers, human anomalies, extreme personal danger . . . risk of death? They hadn’t signed up for those.  Turning their backs on the crisis, however, is unthinkable, it’s just not who they are.

Winter Is Here

Heartfelt thanks to everyone who had posted and supported Dead of Winter: Journey 1, Forlorn Peak.  I’m overwhelmed but thrilled that the launch of this new series/serial is still going.  My heart is full.

Dead of Winter: Journey 1, Forlorn Peak

With Dead of Winter, I call the installments Journeys, because the characters travel across the complex world I built, experiencing new cultures and meeting new people. These journeys will publish approximately monthly.  Length will range from 30 to 60 pages, or so.

  1. What a great variation for Thursday’s Doors. For a long time, love the way authors promote each other on blogs. Very impressive. …. and thanks for the nice comment on Dan’s end … I like to respond to those who take the time, but my time got away from me. And thanks for visiting Beach Walk Reflections. The Colors walk is typical … that is the format is the same … but I change the topic. Next walk will be up Saturday morning.

  2. Ooo! All my favourites all together! I LOVED A36 and Nethergate, and I have Vanished waiting on my Kindle. All I need to do to finish my wander through all the magical doors, is pop over to the shop and grab Dead of Winter 🙂

    1. You are too kind, Ms. Frances. I blush. ^^’ I didn’t get my blog serial post (The Delta Pearl) written for the third weekend in a row. But working with the images helped me cope with my anxiety over the stuff in DC. I’m very happy that you liked it. Stay happy and sassy. Hugs on the wing!


    1. Thank you, Priscilla. The images have been a coping mechanism, but I’m delighted to be able to share on behalf of others. I’m glad you liked that one, because I was downright pleased with myself. LOL. (Shhhh… my father would turn over in his grave if he heard me say that.) 😉 Hugs on the wing!


  3. It was fun to combine Thursday Doors with Teagan’s Books. The scenes you created are so vivid in my mind that it was easy to find places that “match” those images. Thanks for mentioning the other authors. There are some books in there I need to add to my reading list.

    Have a great day, Teagan and good luck with the ongoing launch!

    1. Dan, I didn’t think anything could be better than the Doors you did of “Atonement, TN”… but you have outdone yourself with that post! I’m thrilled. If I can’t get my act together to write the next Delta Pearl, I will repress it Saturday.
      I’m happy I could introduce you to some new books today. There’s so much talent in the WordPress community — yourself included. Hugs on the wing!

  4. Another great post! Congratulations, Teagan, and thank you for sharing your book recommendations. I’ve read Mark’s Vanished and thought it amazing and horrifying (5-stars). I look forward to reading Teri’s and Robbie’s books. 🤗
