Updates

I have been busy in November with health issues and getting  ready for the holidays.

The formatting is complete for my newest book: Flaming Lioness: Ancient Hymns for Egyptian Goddesses.  I’m waiting on the book cover.   This book may not be published until 2019.

My Books Coming in 2019:

  • Flaming Lioness: Ancient Hymns for Egyptian Goddesses.
  • Solar Lioness: Ancient Hymns for Sekhmet. 
  • Lady of the Temple: Ancient Hymns for Nephthys.
  • Solar Flares and Sunbeams: An Anthology for Ra.
  • Creation Mother: Ancient Hymns for Mut. 

Now some of you may be wondering, won’t the hymns in Flaming Lioness contain all of the content of Nephthys, Sekhmet and Mut’s hymnal compilations?  Well, yes and no.

Many of the hymns are the same in both books.  But, some of the hymns I wasn’t able to get into Flaming Lioness, so those will be included in the  other hymnal compilations.  Also the books for Sekhmet, Mut and Nephthys will also include a festival calendar and a long list of epithets.

Nephthys Anthology Update

SheWhoSpeaksPdf cover

Hi, everyone!  I had a biopsy a week and a half ago.  I’m mostly recovered, but I still have some pain.  At any rate, I was able to order the second proof copy of She Who Speaks Through Silence.  There was a small error that I’m getting fixed.  This book should be published within the next week.  I apologize for all of the delays.

Solar Flares and Sunbeams: An Anthology for Ra and His Family

by Chelsea Luellon Bolton

Ra (Re) is the ancient Egyptian God of the Sun.  He is the creator of the world, Gods and Humankind.  He is both the warmth of the sun and its fiery, scorching rays.  He is the one who travels through the sky during the day and through the Underworld at night, culminating in His defeat of the Evil Serpent.   He merges with Wesir (Osiris), the King of the Underworld and renews the afterlife and creation.

He has many forms and syncretisms with other gods.  He has many daughters who bear the title “Eye of Ra” which means they are His guardians and protectors who harness the fierce power of sun to dispose of enemies and evil forces.

Ra as the creator of the world

Ra as the Creator of Humankind

Ra as the God of Kings
