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...

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.

New Book!


I haven't told you much about The Cloak of Challiver, book two of The Talismans. It was launched at a very low-key affair during the recent convention in Canberra. It's available as an e-book, and you can pre-order a hard copy version, but I have no word on when that will be released.

It's a different book from The Dagger of Dresnia, although Ellyria is again the linchpin character, with her daughter-in-law Tamirayne as her sidekick. They are twenty-two years older, and as the story is basically a double romance, the plot highlights the adventures of Ellyria's two granddaughters, Milana and Lyrien, both of whom fall in love with men their parents would not consider to be suitable partners. The Dark Spirit is still around, as is Nustofer, the villainous cleric from The Dagger of Dresnia, and as with any good medieval fantasy, there are plenty of of love scenes, battles and mysteries. You can buy the ebook from Amazon and other online retailers, or direct from the publishers at http://satalyte.com.au/ - and if you're holding out for hard copy, just put in a pre-order.

Book Three, The Seer of Syland, will be a couple of generations later than the Cloak story. Don't hold your breath - it's still very much a WIP (work-in-progress!) I'm also playing with a novella, a spin-off from The Cloak of Challiver.

I'm looking forward to getting 'The Cloak of Challiver' - just as soon as I replace my dead KIndle.

Jo said...

I will look into it after Christmas Satima. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Satima Flavell said...

And the same to you, Jo. May next year be full of joyful achievement in all our fields of interest!

Satima Flavell said...

My Kindle died as soon as it was out of warranty, Helen, so now I just read on the Kindle app on my phone or computer.

Satima Flavell said...

I'll be interested to learn what you think of book 2, Helen, as that's the volume for which our writers group had the most input.

Joanna Fay said...

Hi Satima, have just downloaded The Cloak of Challiver and look forward to reading it (likewise on Kindle for PC). I wish you all the best with it, hope you've had a lovely Christmas Day, and wish you a wonderful 2017!
Much love, Jo. xoxo

Satima Flavell said...

Yay, so nice that my writing buddies are willing to read still another version of that book. It was a long time in the making, and I am very grateful for your input.

I'll post to Egoboo as well - it's over a year since the last post and that was mine, too. It would be nice to see some more action on that blog. (Hint, hint!)
