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 two novels of my trilogy, The Talismans, are not available as e-books at present, but I expect to get them back online shortly. However, I do have paperbacks of The Dagger of Dresnia at the low price of $25 including postage within Australia. I also have a short story, 'La Belle Dame', in print - see Mythic Resonance below. 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.

I can't resist tests!

It's OK, I've written over a thousand words this morning and I've outlined the next two scenes, so I've followed Lee Battersby's lead and done some tests on Hello Quizzy. Here's the first one:

Your result for The Mythological God Test...

Thoth


Thoth, the Egyptian God of secret wisdom, intellect, geometry and other forms of higher mathematics, was also the God of books and learning, of writing and numbers. And above all, he was the God of Magic. Indeed, he was the first and greatest of all magicians, said to create miracles from nothing by the mere vibrations of his voice alone.


Within his main temple were said to be stored his books of magic which were open for the edification of all, providing those absorbing this magic understood its sacred content. Over the centuries, these books were said to have been carefully translated by various priests of secret orders until finally, the Greeks compiled them as the works of Hermes Trismegistus.


One book most everyone is familiar with which is attributed to the mysteries of the God Thoth is the Tarot, considered to be an unbound book of symbols that may be read in an endless variety of sequences imitating the random nature of existence itself.

Here I came out as Frey. Including 75% sexual. Told you I should write your sexy bits LOL

Satima Flavell said...

Woo-hoo Jo! Start writing:-) (There's money in erotica, I believe.)

Jo said...

Its funny actually, the friend I mentioned, writes all kinds of self help books, is an agony-aunt, writes specific sexual help stuff and yet with the one novel she wrote, there was hardly any sex in it. Just in passing as it were and not much of that. I was very surprised. I thought it was a delightful novel, but she couldn't get a publisher although she has some 20 or so non fiction out there.

Satima Flavell said...

Yes, it's hard to make that leap from non-fiction to fiction. And, of course, you just have to happen to have the very thing the publisher is looking for on that particular day, so there's a lot of luck involved as well.

Jo said...

I was puzzled, bearing in mind her normal stuff, that there were no steamy sex scenes in her novel. Maybe she should have included some. She was told, by publishers, that they would like to see her next book. Standard phrase I assume.

I got the same picture as you, Satima, but ended up as Amun (88% erudite, 79% sensual). King of the gods, go figure! :D

There were some nice pictures accompanying the questions to this test though.

Satima Flavell said...

Publishers don't usually ask to see any more of an author's work, Jo, unless they are quite impressed with what they've already seen. Perhaps they already had something in their list that was very similar to the one your friend wrote. I hope she keeps trying.

Erudite and sensual, Ru? You had better start writing literary erotica:-) That's in between looking after Upper and Lower Egypt, of course!

hrugaar said...

Literary erotica? Or perhaps sensual eruditica. Heh.

Satima Flavell said...

Ah, a Cyrenaic has come amongst us:-)
