Red neon party bus

Straightlaced Saturday will not be at the steampunk train station today.  This weekend I must not blog, no matter how much I miss visiting with you.  Why?  I have a ton of work to do before the Atonement, TN Party Bus is road worthy!  So I’ve disabled comments today.  

However… Deme and Honeybell were so excited about this lovely review of their Snort Stories from Dyanna at Ravenhawks’ Magazine that I have to share it with you before the launch party for Atonement in Bloom!

Dyanna’s review:  Fun and funny. Glowing pigs visit the little town of Atonement, Tennessee bringing their own brand of quirky magic to a town already steeped in magic. This wonderful little book give you a glimpse of the magic that Deme and Honeybell create and a quick peek at some of the residents of Atonement. It is a quick entertaining read guaranteed to bring a smile a short and even giggle.

Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers will continue on Wednesday for Hidebound Hump Day.

I will be busy making sure that everyone who promised to help with the book launch of Atonement in Bloom is represented on the party bus and the Atonement, TN book fair.

Some of the characters from my quirky town of Atonement, TN are helping me prepare the bus.  Lilith the cat is your driver, and the otherworldly glowing pigs, Deme and Honeybell are hostesses.  They wanted to show you the inside of the party bus.  (I’m channeling my Meadow character, who has green hair.)

The party bus/book launch will go live October 20. 

The party bus will be making stops all around the town as we pick up readers and bloggers.

Roll on party bus!  I’ll see you soon!

Atonement Doors – #ThursdayDoors

Beyond my wildest dreams! That was the result when I asked Dan Antion if he would be interested in doing a Thursday Doors post — using my fictional town of Atonement, TN. I told Dan just run with it — wherever his imagination took him, and I’m so glad he did. I’m still gawking at his post, I love it that much.
The way he described everything made his post wonderful — I felt like I was living in a chapter of the book.

Some of the photos he chose look exactly as I imagine the town. I had hoped that I made Atonement an “any town” so people could relate to it. Dan made me think I got it right. I hope everyone else thinks so.

I managed to get through the publication process with Atonement in Bloom (click here!). While the launch is not until the 20th, I’ve already made it available on Amazon. Also, the first book (Atonement, Tennessee) is on sale for 99 cents (e-book) for the launch.

Dan, heartfelt thanks for this amazing Atonement, TN Doors post. I’m humbled and honored.  I’ve disabled comments here, because I want you to visit Dan’s fabulous blog.

Hugs! 

No Facilities

Think of this cover as the door to a wonderful book.

Today is a very special edition of Thursday Doors – I am sharing doors from Atonement, Tennessee, the charming and very mysterious town created by Teagan R. Geneviene in her series of novels. If you enjoy reading Teagan’s serial stories, you will love these novels. Horsefeathers, (as Teagan would say) get on with the news, boy!

Teagan has recently revealed the cover of “Atonement in Bloom” the long-awaited second book in the Atonement series. I had the pleasure of reading an early edition of this book, and I’ve been sitting here ever since, silently chanting “finish the edits, finish the edits…” Well, the edits are finished, Teagan is loading-up a party bus and you should join me in making plans to purchase a copy of this bloomin’ book, later this month.

One of the things…

Another Bloomin’ Cover Reveal — But this time it’s mine!

Friday, October 5, 2018

I debated when to run this post.  I worried that it wouldn’t be seen between my serial posts — so I scheduled it as my Saturday post. Then I worried that you’d lose track of Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers… 

Have I ever mentioned that Springsteen was born to run, Steppenwolf was born to be wild, and I… well, I was born to worry?  The short story is I changed my mind this morning and decided to post the cover reveal now!

First came Atonement, Tennessee — my debut novel.  For years, as time, life, and my job permitted (which wasn’t nearly often enough) I worked on the creation of a sequel.  Eventually, I started my editing process.  That was made more difficult because of all those years of start and stop writing.  And then, the editing was almost as stop-n-go as the writing.  (I could have had my own convenience store. Snort!)

I’ve talked about book-2 for so long that it’s embarrassing.  I feel like I’m going out on a flower laden limb by (again) saying that I will release the book soon.  Even so, I present to you, the cover of Atonement in Bloom.

A Review!

The inimitable Donna Parker received an advance copy of “Bloom” and did a review here.  Donna did some fabulous casting for a movie version.  I loved her choices of actors.  Be sure to visit her post.

The book launch will be soon.  I’m aiming for October 20th, if everything goes well with the publication process.  However, you know me — I have to be different.  It won’t be your everyday book launch.  It’s going to be a blog party bus!

Yes, there are some of the characters from my quirky town of Atonement, TN already on the bus.  Lilith the cat is your driver, and the otherworldly glowing pigs, Deme and Honeybell are hostesses.  If you want to participate in this Party Bus Book Launch let me know by October 13th, because I need to add you to the story

Atonement Blog Party Bus Loaded

What do I mean? If you want to be mentioned in the blog party (along with your link), I’m asking you to promote the book launch from your blog in return.  I can send you an HTML file of the entire post, or you can reblog it.  Any takers? 

Update: Again… if you want to be featured on the party bus, you must leave me a link (to what you want to show) in your comment.  In return, I ask that you please reblog my launch (party bus) post — or let me know you can work with an HTML post and I will send you the entire post. 

The party bus/launch will go live October 20.  Feel free to post that day, or any day afterward.

I announced this on Facebook earlier. Thanks to Carol Taylor, Jacquie BiggarValentina Cirasola,  Gerlinde de Broekertand Barb Taub, who have already offered to share the party bus launch.  Special thanks to Dan Antion who will promote the cover reveal at his place, with very short notice.  If I have enough time I’ll make an Atonement TN bookstore, so leave a link to a picture of your book.

The party bus will be making stops all around the town as we pick up readers and bloggers.  So if you want to participate in this off-the-wall book launch, then have your links ready. Remember, I need them by October 13th.

Roll on party bus!  Mega hugs!
