Weigh-in time!

We are more than half way through November and I have not written a blog post. Life goes on as usual: Mondays and Tuesdays I teach dance. W...

About Me

My photo
I am a writer, editor, reviewer and dance teacher based in Perth, Western Australia. You might enjoy my books - The Dagger of Dresnia, the first book of the Talismans Trilogy, is available at all good online book shops. Book two, The Cloak of Challiver, will be available again shortly. Book three, The Seer of Syland, is in preparation. I trained in piano and singing at the NSW Conservatorium of Music. I also trained in dance (Scully-Borovansky, WAAPA) and drama (NIDA). Since 1987 I have been writing reviews of performances in all genres for a variety of publications, including Music Maker, ArtsWest, Dance Australia, The Australian and others. Now semi-retired, I still write occasionally for the ArtsHub website, and I still teach dance at Trinity School for Seniors, an outreach program of the Uniting Church in Perth.

My books

The first novel of my trilogy, The Talismans, is available as an e-book 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. Book one, The Dagger of Dresnia, is up on the usual bookselling web sites as an e-book, and I have a few hard copies to sell to those who prefer Real Paper. Book Two, The Cloak of Challiver, will be available soon. The easiest way to contact me is via Facebook.

A good review!



Wow, our first review for Mythic Resonance! Feeling right chuffed, I am, after reading what Mario Guslandi says about 'La Belle Dame' on SFRevu. He also speaks well of two stories I edited - Sue Bursztynski's 'Brothers' and Nigel Read's 'Holly and Iron'. And Amanda Greenslade's beautiful cover is right up there on the front page of SFRevu! 

Guslandi ends by saying the Mythic Resonance writers 'certainly deserve wider recognition outside Australia'! 

Yup, right chuffed, me.

Drat! I tired to click through to this link and it didn't openm. Then I went to the web site and tried again and it didn't open. I got a grey screen. Someone says something nice about my story and I can't read it! Congrats on the review, anyway, and I have bought the e-book of MR to carry around on my iPad and brag about!

It's working Ok for me, Sue - just keep trying. He said that 'Brothers' was an 'an amazing new take of the Snow White canon'. (He's Italian, so his English is sometimes a bit unconventional!)

Ooh, iPad. Want. Kindle for Desk Top doesn't quite carry the same kudos:-).

That's fantastic, Satima! Congrats. :)
Also, I've nominated you for a Versatile Blogger Award.

Wow, another award! I've already got one called 'Versatile Blogger' but I think this must be a different one!

Sue Bursztynski said...

I did finally get through to the review and he can use whatever wording he wants as long as he likes it! ;-)

So, are you guys entering the MR stories in the AAs? It's such a very good collection that it would be a shame not to.

Satima Flavell said...

I'm glad you were finally able to read it, Sue. Nice, eh? Yes, I believe Stephen has good intentions of nomming everything for whatever it's eligible for!
