It’s All About Indie!
Welcome, my chuckaboos! Come on in and join this fandango. To me, sharing indie books is simply rum ti tum with the chill off! It’s so much better to celebrate my friends than to bubble around. There certainly is a lot to celebrate. So, pour yourself a mug of oh be joyful, but try not to get blootered just yet — you need to know what we’re toasting. Is my liberal use of Victorian slang a clue about one of the things in this post?
It might seem like I’ve been publishing like mad this year, but it’s really that I’m finally finishing some things. Yes, book of The Armadillo Files is new, but the serial started about a year ago. Dead of Winter, as many of you remember, started in 2010. Today I’m announcing a non-fiction book I started in 2016.
Not wanting to hog the spotlight, I’m featuring a few friends who have books that are new or coming soon. Congratulate Robbie Cheadle on her just-released book. Also, S.R. Mallery, who offers another free book, and Dan Antion on his soon to be released second book.
About the Books
Announcing Speak Chuckaboo!
Slang of the Victorian and Steam Eras
Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene
Back in the days of steam engines and mannerly people, a chuckaboo was one’s dear friend. This volume contains slang from the Victorian Era, as well as the Steam Era, which began before the reign of Queen Victoria, and continued into the early 1900s. It combines language from the Victorian, Edwardian, and Steam Eras because there was a great deal of overlap.
This slang dictionary also contains a sprinkling of vocabulary words of those eras, which have fallen out of use, along with some history and trivia. Have fun speaking chuckaboo. You’re positively rum ti tum with the chill off! Simply hunky dory.

Then comes two complete short stories: Her “On Being Jen” is a Twilight Zone version of how a teenage girl battles envy, and the award-winning short story, “Charlotte,” is an alternative route to a true event during the French revolution.
