Anita Page, circa 1920
Welcome to Jazz Age Wednesdays. It’s almost Saint Patrick’s Day, so I had to give you something green. I hope you enjoyed Miss Page. But wait a minute, I can’t hear myself think. Horsefeathers! The characters are taking over this post…
Pip: Hey Andy, have you seen this? I know you love science fiction and get into some horror stories.
Andy: Hi-ya, flapper. What did you say? Oh I see. This post is a departure because Teagan couldn’t resist sharing author Teri Polen’s new cover reveal! Applesauce, look at all that. Shhh… I’m trying to read it.
Pip: Move over, I can’t see. Oooh that’s pos-i-lutely darb!
Would you two get back in your corner of my brain, please? Thank you. Now, back to the point. I’m “green with envy” because Teri Polen’s new book is so fantastic! Here’s more about it in the author’s own words.
And now, presenting…
The Gemini Connection
by Teri Polen
Paperback Release Date: May 31, 2018

Young Adult > Sci-Fi/Fantasy > Thriller
Teen twin brothers Evan and Simon Resnik are fiercely loyal to each other and share an unusual bond—they experience each other’s emotions as their own and can sense where the other is.
On their dying planet of Tage, scientists work tirelessly on its survival. Like the twins’ parents, Simon is a science prodigy, recruited at a young age to work with the brilliant creator of Scientific Innovations. To the bitter disappointment of their parents, Evan shows no aptitude or interest in science. As a Mindbender, he travels into the minds of scientists to locate buried memories, connect ideas and concepts, and battle recurring nightmares.
When Simon mysteriously disappears, Evan is plunged into a world of loss and unbearable guilt. For the first time, he can’t ‘feel’ Simon—it’s like he no longer exists. Evan blames himself. No one knows that he ignored his brother’s pleas for help on the night he went missing.
A year later, Simon is still gone. Evan lost his twin, but Tage might have lost its last hope of survival when it’s discovered that Simon’s unfinished project could be its salvation. Evan is determined to find him—somewhere—and bring Simon home. Their unusual connection might be more extraordinary than they know, and the key to locating Simon.

Pip: Hey Sheiks and Shebas. Just letting you know that Jazz Age Wednesdays, with yours truly will be back next week. Thanks for visiting. You’re pos-i-lutely the cat’s meow!
Sigh… that flapper just refuses to stay in her corner. I have just one more thing to say, a reminder.
In case you missed it…
Last week I posted a request for your votes and feedback. I want your input as I decide on what kind of blog serial to do after Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam is finished. It will be a “three things” style serial, with you sending three random things to drive the story. So I want you, the reader to be evolved every step of the way. If you missed that post you can vote for the type of serial you’d like and leave your thoughts here*. Please do vote and/or comment. It really helps my thought process.
Thanks for visiting. You’re the bee’s knees!
PS: Now here’s the requisite shameless self-promotion — the links to the books about Pip and her friends.
