Future Projects

I have tons of projects I’m working on right now.  I’d like to narrow my focus so I can get a few of them done.

  • Solar Lioness: Ancient Hymns for Sekhmet.
  • Creation Mother: Ancient Hymns for Mut.  (As someone else is helping me with this via translation, this will take longer).
  • River, Star and Sky: Poems for the Egyptian Gods.
  • Lord of the Ways: An Anthology for Wepwawet. (Due date for submissions is January 7, 2020)
  • Lady of Magic: Honoring Aset Today.
  • Hymns of the Two Lands: Ancient Hymns for Egyptian Gods.
  • Mother of Nine: An Anthology for Oya.

 

On a separate note, I need help for figuring out the title of  Mut’s book:

  • Lady of the Double Crown
  • Creation Mother
  • Mother, Queen and Matriarch
  • Queen Mother

What I Include in My Books

I posted  this on my Patreon and thought people here would find  it useful.

So I have a book that just came out with ancient hymns in it (see here) and it occurred to me that many people may not know how this works.

Once I find a hymn or quote I want to use, I look up the publisher and email them with the information of what I want to include (the hymn, the full citation of the book or article, including page number) and information about my book (title, publisher, rights, distribution, approximate cost).  Then starts the waiting game.  Sometimes it takes a few days, a month and some take years to get back to me.  Yes, years.  (I’m still waiting on some in fact).

Now, once I hear back, I can get different kinds of responses:

  • Got permission.  It’s free.  Just send us a copy of the book and cite everything completely.  Sometimes, they’ll even give me a template to use for citations.  So, literally cut and paste,  just add the page number.  (and no, you can’t abbreviate citations.  Full citation for each hymn)
  • You may have permission if you send us money.  $50 USD
  • You may have permission if you send us money.  $200 USD
  • You may have permission if you send us money even though you asked for only 6 to 12 lines.  $198 USD  (Yes, this happened)
  • You may have permission to translate and include one hymn if you pay us.  $350  USD (Yes, this happened too and I said no)

And I must include the books in the bibliography as well.

So if the hymn is in German or French, I have to ask permission from either the author or the publisher to translate it and include it in my book.  If it is already translated into English, I ask permission from the author/translator or publisher to include it in my book.  Sometimes, they will ask for a copy of the book in exchange which I am more than happy to provide.

If it is in hieroglyphs then I ask someone who knows hieroglyphs to translate it for me in exchange for a book copy or monetary compensation.  If I knew hieroglyphs, then I could just translate it myself.  (But I digress…)

So I hope this helped to clear up any issues about what I include in my books as far as content or footnotes.

Thank you to all the authors, translators and publishers who kindly gave  me permission to include their works in my books.

Updates: Many Books

I sent Lady of the Temple: Ancient Hymns for Nephthys to the formatter! I’m still waiting on the cover for Flaming Lioness: Ancient Hymns for Egyptian Goddesses.

The next book I’ll hopefully finish is either Solar Lioness: Ancient Hymns for Sekhmet or Solar Flares and Sunbeams: An Anthology for Ra.

Creation Mother: Ancient Hymns for Mut (working title) is going to take longer as I’m hoping to be able to include some if not all of the Crossword Hymn to Mut in it.
