Hidebound Hump Day — Cornelis Drebbel 15

Wednesday, October 31, 2018  Happy Halloween, everyone!  Welcome back to the spontaneously written, #SteamPunk serial, Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers.  Everything about the story is driven by the random things that were sent by readers, back in 2015.  When I say everything, I mean it — even the location.  Although no one … More Hidebound Hump Day — Cornelis Drebbel 15

Hidebound Hump Day — Cornelis Drebbel 14

Wednesday, October 24, 2018  Heartfelt thanks to everyone who got on the party bus for the launch of Atonement in Bloom!  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate everyone who hosted the launch post, reblogged, allowed me to use images, and otherwise helped me promote my new novel.  If you missed the launch, don’t worry.  … More Hidebound Hump Day — Cornelis Drebbel 14

Hidebound Hump Day — Cornelis Drebbel 13

Wednesday, October 17, 2018  It’s Hidebound Hump Day, and another episode of Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers.  There was not a Straightlaced Saturday chapter last week, so today we pick up where we left off a week ago.  Remember I’ve mentioned that this serial was originally presented as a “culinary” mystery.  All of the random “things” that … More Hidebound Hump Day — Cornelis Drebbel 13

Hiedbound Hump Day — Cornelis Drebbel 12

Wednesday, October 10, 2018  Welcome back to Hidebound Hump Day, and another episode of Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers.  My blog-writing time is limited to the weekend, and it was a very busy one.  So without further ado, here’s chapter 12. Previously with Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers Chapter 11.  Felicity thought one … More Hiedbound Hump Day — Cornelis Drebbel 12

Hidebound Hump Day — Cornelis Drebbel 10

Wednesday, October 3, 2018  Welcome back to Hidebound Hump Day, where we continue our Victorian (#SteamPunk) adventure from Straightlaced Saturday.  This episode brings up some health matters for the characters.   That wouldn’t be surprising if you knew that I wrote it in March of 2015, during a huge snowfall.  I hate snow, so I was really missing the … More Hidebound Hump Day — Cornelis Drebbel 10

A Revealing Straightlaced Saturday — Cornelis Drebbel 9

Saturday, September 29, 2018  It’s another “Revealing” Straightlaced Saturday. The first blogger I got acquainted with — back in November of 2012, for National Novel Writing Month, was  Mary J McCoy-Dressel.  In 2015 she provided the “things/ingredients” for Wednesday’s episode and for this one.  Mary made an off-handed, fanciful comment about destiny… and as you saw in episode … More A Revealing Straightlaced Saturday — Cornelis Drebbel 9

Copper, the Alchemist, & the Woman in Trousers: Episode 11

Location Revealed! When my friend Olga at Just Olga offered “things” for an episode of this “interactive” serial, I knew they would be rich in detail. What I didn’t expect was for those things to reveal the location of the story… well, sort of.  It’s not an exact location, but a general one. You see, that’s how my Three Things … More Copper, the Alchemist, & the Woman in Trousers: Episode 11

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
