Jazz Age Wednesdays 11 ― Turkey Time for Pip

Wednesday, November 22, 2017 Hey Sheiks and Shebas,  I’m pos-i-lutely thankful that you’re at Jazz Age Wednesdays!  Yes, November is National Novel Writing Month (#NaNoWriMo), even at Thanksgiving (USA). And yes, I’m still woefully behind on my word-count toward drafting a novel of 50,000 words in a month… but I’m so grateful for all of you … More Jazz Age Wednesdays 11 ― Turkey Time for Pip

Jazz Age Wednesdays 1 — Pip Arrives in Savannah

Wednesday, September 6, 2017 Each weekend I give you a new serial episode. I’ve been giving that throughout most of the past four years. However, Teagan’s Books is about more than serial episodes.  It’s about my books too.  So I’m creating this midweek feature. I added a poll to the last post. Not a majority, but … More Jazz Age Wednesdays 1 — Pip Arrives in Savannah

Mocha Dacquoise Cake And The Winners Of the Giveaway

“Hey Sheba! Whatcha got there? A cookbook? Applesauce! You could use one.  Hold on… is that a cookbook for salads?  Are you sure you can manage a salad without burning it?” “Ha!  Pip, I hope you realize that you get your cooking skills (or the lack thereof) from me.  Besides, I happen to have won … More Mocha Dacquoise Cake And The Winners Of the Giveaway

Get Caught Reading — The Sign of the Ape 2 (2016 Rerun)

#GetCaughtReadingMonth Hello everyone.  As you may have noticed I’m rerunning last year’s mini-series.  It’s about the escapades of our intrepid band of bloggers and their pets.  That was how I participated in Get Caught Reading Month.  After May I’ll get back to my usual posting schedule.

Back to a Pug in the Kitchen — Granny Phanny & the Giant Rabbit

Update I finally got around to making Suzanne’s “Creamy Spring Turnip Soup.”  I know anything from A Pug in the Kitchen is going to be delicious, but I confess to being lukewarm about turnips.  I say that for the non-turnip lovers in the crowd.  I always take shortcuts in cooking, so I know my versions … More Back to a Pug in the Kitchen — Granny Phanny & the Giant Rabbit

Mysterious Lodge — Features from Atonement, TN

Building a House with Magic — The Mysterious Lodge Sometimes things don’t go as planned — as you saw last weekend.

Copper, the Alchemist, & the Woman in Trousers: Episode 31

Three Things & Three Blogs I hesitated to ask for more “things” to fuel the steam locomotive to the Victorian Era, because the serial is nearing the end of the line.  What if I got more things than I could use?  I wouldn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.  However, I still had to have the three things.  … More Copper, the Alchemist, & the Woman in Trousers: Episode 31

Copper, the Alchemist, & the Woman in Trousers: Episode 24

Choices One of my favorite bloggers, Donna Parker, wrote about choices. Her post got me thinking — as it often does. Eventually my pondering turned to choices about writing. Despite the fact that writers are advised to choose one genre and stick to it, I think most of us like to dabble in various types … More Copper, the Alchemist, & the Woman in Trousers: Episode 24

Copper, the Alchemist, & the Woman in Trousers: Episode 14

What’s in a name? Last time I promised that this episode would reveal the name of the mysterious Woman in Trousers.  Her name shifted and altered in my mind throughout the week.  But yes, the “things” finally led to the naming of the Woman.  I thought to pay homage to a character from an all but forgotten … More Copper, the Alchemist, & the Woman in Trousers: Episode 14

Copper, the Alchemist, & the Woman in Trousers: Episode 6

On Wings of Whimsy The four naughty chimps probably weren’t as much of a surprise to those of you who have been with Teagan’s Books for awhile.  I don’t think I can get more whimsical than a ghost cowboy riding a giant seahorse.  I really shouldn’t let those wings of whimsy sprout again, lest you think … More Copper, the Alchemist, & the Woman in Trousers: Episode 6
