A new lease of life for my books

As you know, I was bitterly disappointed when Satalyte shut up shop as it might have meant the end of my admittedly short career as a publi...

About Me

I am a writer, editor, reviewer and dance teacher based in Perth, Western Australia.

My books

The first novel of my trilogy, The Talismans, is available as e-books from Smashwords, Amazon and other online sellers. I do have paperbacks of The Dagger of Dresnia at the low price of $AU25 including postage within Australia. I also have a short story, 'La Belle Dame', in print - see Mythic Resonance below. Book two of the trilogy, The Cloak of Challiver, will be available again shortly. The best way to contact me is via Facebook!

Buy The Talismans

The first two books of The Talismans trilogy were published by Satalyte Publications, which, sadly, has gone out of business. I hope to see my books back on Amazon under a new publisher in the near future.

A spot of name-dropping

I am constantly amazed at how clever my friends are. I'm not talking about the ones whose cleverness is already well-known, such as the published authors whose blogs I follow and whose books I read assiduously, but the guys who turn up in my life and jog alongside me for months or years before I find out how gifted they are.

One such is Joel Fagin. He has just shyly admitted that he and an English artist, Robert Bracey, have spent months putting together a Japanese-inspired comic. It's called "Tengu"; it updates on Mondays and you can find it here:

Website: http://tengu.comicgenesis.com/
First comic: http://tengu.comicgenesis.com/d/20080310.html
RSS Feed: http://tengu.comicgenesis.com/rss.xml


Do check it out. It's brilliantly well done.

Joel is a fellow member of the KSP Speculative Fiction group. Other group members draw, paint, sculpt, weave and write verse as well as turning out amazing spec-fic stories. One, Carol Ryles, is just now on her way back from spending six weeks at Clarion West, a spec-fic writers boot camp in Seattle. Another, Sonia Timms-Helbig, has just arrived in LA to take part in the Writers of the Future workshops. Both these activities are highly competitive: you have to be bloody good even to get a look in.

Yup, I am very proud of my clever friends:-) Just as I am proud of my clever children - but I'm not allowed to mention them.

Like calls to like. I expect friends and children are very proud of you too (whether or not they're allowed to mention it). :)

Interesting Satima, I wil check them out. We are having the World Fantasy Confernece in Calgary this year. This is not where everyone dresses as an alien. It is editors, publishers, writers etc, go to schmooze. I hope to be able to go to it this year.

I will be sure to check out those links.

Satima --

I just had a look. Yes, they're good.

Why on earth are you not allowed to mention your children. Bastetmax talks of her son all the time.

Satima Flavell said...

Of course, all my e-buddies, especially those on my blogroll, are clever, too:-)Jo writes one of the best blogs in the business and Ru, Randi-Lee and Marilyn, I know, are talented writers. Randi-Lee, you are so lucky to go to World Fantasycon. It has an excellent reputation for all the reasons you mention. I do hope you manage to get there so you can tell us all about it.

Jo, I don't mention my kids any more because one of them, sadly, misinterpreted something I'd written, seeing it as disparaging when it was meant to be praise. Better just be mum, Mum:-(

Jo said...

Thanks for the compliment Satima. I does mi best missus. I wish someone would tell Blogger that so I could get my ads back.
