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 available as e-books from Smashwords. 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. 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.

When a post is not a post

This is a post to apologise for not having posted. I have spent much of the day fighting with a set top box. I've finally realised that it has to go back to the shop and now I'm staggering to bed, exhausted.

I'll do a Real Post sometime during the week. Be well and happy meantime. And Happy New Year, in case I don't get back before then:-)

What is a set top box?

webfaery said...

We've had a similar experience with an HD set-top box. We had one recently that we couldn't get working with our 6y/o telly, so we returned the box. It wasn't until after we returned it that Stephen discovered (via some online research) that the totally inadequate instructions didn't include the necessary info and that we should have been able to get the box to work if only we'd known 'this' and 'that'. Trouble is the box seemed to be responsible for the sudden hourglass distortion of our tv picture. We tried everything recommended to fix it, to no avail, and ended up going out and buying a very nice LCD telly with built-in HD.

Very frustrating, Satima! I confess, I got my son to set mine up. The instruction book was very little help. It will be great when you get things going.

Jo, the box is a device that allows you to tune into digital TV stations.

Satima Flavell said...

I think this one has a dud remote control. The TV recognises the box and brings up a screen to set up the channels (which is a whole nother ball game!) but then I can't move around because the remote doesn't work, even after two changes of batteries, the last ones brand new. And it's a discontinued line so I can't just exchange it, so I'll get a refund and start again. Like Webfaery, I might just get a new TV:-)Or, when I see the prices, I might not...

Where's your guy? that's a man's work (lol) :D

Satima Flavell said...

Times like this are only times I almost wish I had one:-) Fortunatley I have a couple of techie sons I can ring up. It was one of them who finally convinced me that the remote would not work, was never going to work, and had to go back where it came from.

I've taken it back and decided I don't want a set top box, after all:-)

Having been drawn back to this page, I understand now that you will have to have one in 2011 - we have one now, didn't like it and wanted to get rid of it and they said we might as well keep it.

Satima Flavell said...

Yes, I'm going to have to get one too, and hope its works properly this time!
