Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 8 + PARTY!

Today’s regularly scheduled Tweet Tales Tuesday is interrupted by an important announcement:

OppressionToday is the official launch day for Jessica Therrien’s debut novel Oppression (Children of the Gods #1). Whoo hoo!  And I’m honored to be one of the blogs helping to host the party to celebrate this exciting day!
 
I met Jessica during the Writers’ Platform-Building Campaign last fall.  Not only does she have a well-written, entertaining blog, but she is very generous in her support of her fellow bloggers.  It’s been fun getting to know Jessica while reading her posts about her publishing journey, and I’m so thrilled for her that her book’s big day is finally here.
 
Since it IS Tweet Tales Tuesday, I thought I’d honor Jessica’s novel with three bonus tweet tales.  
 
For the first bonus tweet tale, I’m going to describe Oppression in a tweet.  I haven’t had a chance to read it yet (I’ve ordered my copy and am just waiting for the burly UPS man to deliver it to me), so the tweet description is based on the Amazon description:
 
Elyse discovers even among those descended from gods, she is special: destined to free her people. But she’s never been one to follow rules.
 
For the second bonus tweet tale, I’m incorporating the word Oppression like any of my usual word-a-day words.
 
They tried to bind her to the earth, but she broke through their oppression and flew toward the stars with wings crafted from dreams.  
 
And because in Oppression the protagonist Elyse discovers that her destiny is deeply intertwined with the fate of the future, I am writing the third bonus tweet tale with the theme of fate/destiny.
 
Her tire blew, so she missed her flight. No, it didn’t crash. She married the guy she sat beside on new flight. Their son’s named Firestone.
 
Congrats again to Jessica on the launch of her debut novel!  Visit her website to find out more details about Oppression and all the places you can purchase your very own copy (plus she’s promised to post a video of her happy dance!).  Jessica’s site also has a list of the other blogs participating in Oppression’s virtual launch party, so give them a visit if you have a chance.
 
15 Minute Tweet TalesAnd now back to our regularly scheduled Tweet Tales Tuesday . . . Here are the 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the last week of February:
 
2/22 – She mostly exhibited a probity befitting a 1st grade teacher, but every Tues night she donned a red wig & danced at The Landing Strip.
 
2/23 – When he told his wife he wanted a divorce, she recited his faults chapter and verse; so he stayed since no one else would have him.
 
2/24 – When he met her at the bar he thought the metathesis in her speech was adorable. The next morning it made him want to punch her mouth.
 
2/25 – He glances up from the paper and sees her face as she stares at the house next door; he groks he’ll be hearing from her lawyer soon.
 
2/26 – As the captives defile past the king, he marks those likely to put on a good show. The lions haven’t had a decent challenge in ages.
 
2/27 – The trainer mocked sedentary people until he discovered World of Warcraft - then his muscles withered while his avatar flourished.
 
2/28 – She built a hypaethral room to honor nature with naked ceremonies. 23,000 YouTube subscribers honored her neighbor’s rooftop camera.
 
The word-a-day calendar offered up some doozies this week.  Chapter and verse?  It ate up so many precious characters.  Metathesis and hypaethral?  I mean, seriously . . . what the heck?!?  But I muddled through and even had some creative oomph left for the bonus tweet tales to celebrate Oppression.
 
Cut a rug at the virtual party for Oppression in the comments below or play along with Tweet Tales Tuesday and write some for the above words.  If you’re willing to share, post them on twitter with the hashtag #15tt or add them to the comments because I’d love to read them.

Loved the tweet tales, especially the Oppression related ones. It's amazing how much story you fit into such a small spaces.

Hey Joycelyn! Thanks for visiting. Really glad you're on board for the Challenge. This is my third year and second as co-host. If you're interested, I also founded the Insecure Writer's Support Group - we post the first Wednesday of every month. (It's located on a tabbed page at my blog.) Yes, I am everywhere doing everything these days.
Nice to meet you!
