So, my book, Lady of Praise, Lady of Power is now on Kindle!
Here is the link on Amazon: Lady of Praise, Lady of Power on Kindle
I ordered the proof copy of Lord of Strength and Power: Ancient Hymns for Wepwawet.
Here is what the back blurb says:
Presented here is a collection of ancient hymns for the ancient Egyptian god, Wepwawet. He is a scout, guide and guard. He is a god of strength, a guide for travelers, a protector of kings, a protector of cemeteries, a protector of Osiris and a son of Isis. He leads the way in war, ritual processions, the path of the sun’s journey and the path of the soul through the Underworld. He is associated with jackals, dogs, wolves and greyhounds.
Within, Lord of Strength and Power, you will find:
Chelsea Bolton has a BA and a MA in Religious Studies from the University of South Florida (2009). She is the author of Lady of Praise, Lady of Power: Ancient Hymns of the Goddess Aset and Queen of the Road: Poetry of the Goddess Aset. Her poetry has been previously published in various anthologies. You can read more of her work at her blog address: http://fiercelybrightone.com
I wanted to let everyone know that I’m still working on the Nephthys devotional, She Who Speaks Through Silence: A Devotional Anthology of Nebet Het (Nephthys). I am waiting on some submissions and Tamara Siuda’s The Ancient Egyptian Daybook to be published since I wanted to include as many festivals to Her in the book as possible (with credit and citations, of course!).
So far the sections I have are:
Ancient Hymns and Prayers
Ritual and Magic (I only have three things here.)
My Poetry to Nebet Het (over 40 poems)
My Poetry to Aset and Nebet Het (about 30 poems)
Modern Hymns, Prayers and Adorations
And an Epilogue of Epithet and Syncretization Lists
Also References and a Glossary
So, Queen of the Road: Poetry of the Goddess Aset has been sent to the formatter and the cover is being made. Just one more edit and the formatting will be done.
I have sent in the permissions for Lady of the Sky: Ancient Hymns of the Goddess Aset from the Temple of Dendera. We’ll see what they say.
I have also been compiling all the submissions for She Who Speaks Through Silence: An Anthology of Nebet Het (Nephthys). And I’m editing it. And I’m also waiting on some submissions.
And I have been editing Magician, Mother and Queen: An Essay of the Goddess Aset. This is an expansion on a paper I submitted to enter Graduate School. Anyway, the 20 page paper has become 60-70 pages long. I’m also not too sure about the title. And I sent in two of the permissions I need for this project.
So, that’s what I’ve been up to lately. How are you all doing?
My book included translations of hymns, with footnotes and a bibliography. I needed to obtain permissions to include the translations in the book. (To learn more about my book, go here: Lady of Praise, Lady of Power.)
I decided to self-publish my book using Lulu.com in both paperback and PDF formats with 2 free ISBNs from Lulu. I also chose to distribute it on Amazon. (Links are here: My Lulu Store or My Amazon Page.) Continue reading
