A herd of visionary elephants have wandered into your field. Is there space for us all?

W.L. Snowden | 6 comments Hi everyone

I have been wandering lost around the mountains, deserts, and oceans of genre, looking for a place for the elephants and I to call home. We saw your distant light and headed over. I think we may have found a place to stay (if you will have us, elephants are not a nuisance).

My name is Wayne, I live in the UK ( a small island off the west coast of mainland Europe) and I have written a novel. I am now trying to figure out what to do with it and how. Sooo much to learn.

My book is on Amazon kindle and soon to be a paperback.

I have started a blog
elephantsutra.wordpress.com

I look forward to some stimulating discussions.

Padma and the Elephant Sutra

D. Thrush | 17 comments Congrats WL! I love the cover. I suggest you join some of the advertising threads to do some sales and work on getting reviews to get things going. There are also threads for that. Good luck!

W.L. Snowden | 6 comments Thank you D.

My wife Francesca painted the cover. Padma the Pink in front of Adam's Peak in Sri Lanka, surrounded by frangipani trees.

Thanks for your advice. I shall look for the threads you suggest.

Allan Ramsay | 12 comments I find the description of your book fascinating, WL. I'm sure there's quite a story from your life that spawned the idea for such a mythical plot. Best success to you with Padma and the Elephant Sutra!

W.L. Snowden | 6 comments Thanks Allan,

I have been considering rewriting the description, in my efforts to understand what could make the book more 'attractive' to potential readers. I was persuaded by someone to tone down the description when they convinced me it was too ethereal. No-one would understand the phrase 'cosmic cuckoo'', and most people have not heard of the myth of Prometheus.
It is interesting (and reassuring) to read your thoughts.
I have recently written a small piece on my blog about what prompted me to write the book. I never had any desire to write until the elephants got into my head! Then they seemed to lead the way.
