My name is Don Satalic—author, photoartist, & iron worker

I recently wrote a mystery novel that involved magic. I did a great deal of research on the subject of magic and illusion. I have since joined a few magic sites to learn more and perhaps write a sequel someday.

What I learned became interwoven in the story itself: the source of magic, what is it?, what is illusion?, and how to create it. Fascinating. I had a great time, too.

Howdy, Don! Welcome to TMF! I'm with Rudy, if that's your novel it does indeed look interesting. I have added it to my wish list, but a question... It is listed as YA fiction, but the description reads more like a thriller. Can you clarify, please?

Thanks!

Hi Rudy,

Wow...You are certainly resourceful. Yep, that's the novel. The story is right there on the cover. It becomes fully "published" on May 5th, when you can get the ebook free with the paperback.

Here's a link to my blog that discusses the struggle I had over the cover: link

P.I. Joe Ganzer has to go under cover...as a magician, which is where I delve into the art of magic. The YA thing is because of no explicit sexual content and no horrific violence, unlike the previous novel (think Sherlock Holmes or Hercule Poirot).

Anyway, thanks for the welcome.

Hi Anthony,

The Dummy Case is hard to pigeon hole. It qualifies as YA because of no explicit sex or violence, although it is suggestive.  And, yes, it reads like a thriller as well. Amazon and others have to put things in boxes. The publisher chose the best out of the boxes offered, I suppose. Now, its predecessor Return of the Falcon could not qualify as YA, far too violent.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Don
