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.

Teaching and Chocolate!


I spent a lovely morning today in the company of members of the Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers Centre's Speculative Fiction Group, chatting about one of my pet topics: the six inevitable mistakes of beginning writers. It went over well, I think, and they presented me with a box of excellent chocolates at the end, so all's well in my world! 

As I've given this talk so often, I think it's about time I gave the information its own web page. If this material might be useful to you, go to the page by clicking here or on the link above to Write it Right: notes for apprentice authors.

No that I am one, but will check it out anyway.

I'm curious about those mistakes. I've read so many mistakes the beginners (and some advanced) writers do! Those chats must be really entertaining. I would just pass on the chocolate. I can't stand it. :)

Satima Flavell said...

Ok, Al - if you ever have a surplus of chocolate, you know where to send it! BTW, I called you 'Andrew' in my last comment on Father Dragon - got you mixed up with another friend who is into dragons, too. A thousand apologies.

Jo said...

Nuts to that, I am Father Dragon's honorary grandmother so that any chocolate will be sent to me Satima, not you. Just had to make sure you understood that.

Satima Flavell said...

Hmph. Late to the table, as usual. Oh well, if there's any left over ...

Jo said...

I might share if I am in a good mood.

Satima Flavell said...

You are kinder than I am. I hoard chocolate like one of Al's dragons hoards gold. And when no one is looking I eat the lot!
