Phantastic Fiction - A Shamanic Approach to Story
Phantastic Fiction - A Shamanic Approach to Story
PRLog - May 18, 2015 - Laguna Beach – May 18, 2015, Long time writing teacher Matthew J. Pallamary’s “Phantastic Fiction - A Shamanic Approach to Story” will be released by Mystic Ink Publishing at the 2015 Santa Barbara Writers Conference and will be available in print and e-book formats worldwide through major online retailers, including Amazon, Smashwords, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Overdrive, Flipkart, Baker & Taylor, Page Foundry, and many others.

As part of the release celebration, Pallamary, along with Inner Journey's Greg Friedman will host WRITERPALOOZA, a writing themed show which will highlight all aspects of dramatic writing, memoir, nonfiction, writing workshops, writer's conferences, and the many paths to publication. There will also be giveaways and guests, among them Marianne Dougherty, director of the prestigious Santa Barbara Writers Conference.

Pallamary's guide to dramatic writing grew out of his popular Phantastic Fiction Workshop which incorporates elements of shamanism that have formed the basis for Joseph Campbell’s legendary Hero’s Journey. Pallamary’s packed workshops have been a staple of the Santa Barbara Writers Conference and the Southern California Writer’s Conference for over twenty five years. He has also lectured at numerous other venues and led his own weekend intensive workshops.

Pallamary has spent extended time in the jungles, mountains, and deserts of North, Central, and South America pursuing his studies of shamanism and ancient cultures. Through his research into both the written word and the ancient beliefs of shamanism, he has uncovered the heart of what a story really is and integrated it into core dramatic concepts that have their basis in shamanism.

His historical novel of first contact between shamans and Jesuits in 18th century South America, titled, "Land Without Evil", received rave reviews along with a San Diego Book Award. It was also adapted into a full-length stage and sky show, co-written with Agent Red and performed by Sky Candy, an Austin Texas aerial group. The making of the show was the subject of a PBS series, Arts in Context episode, which garnered an EMMY nomination.

His memoir "Spirit Matters", detailing his journeys to the jungles of Peru, took top honors in the San Diego Book Awards’ Spiritual Book Category, and was an Award-Winning Finalist in the National Best Book Awards.

"Spirit Matters" was also released as an audio book, narrated by the author and produced and directed by Greg Friedman at the KX 93.5 studios in Laguna Beach. A portion of all Spirit Matters audio book sales goes to KX 93.5 which is a listener supported station.

His tribute to Ray Bradbury, a short story collection titled “A Short Walk to the Other Side” was an Award Winning Finalist in the International Book Awards and an Award Winning Finalist in the USA Best Book Awards.

Other Mystic Ink books have won the following awards:

International Book Award - 1st Place - Nonfiction New Age - The Infinity Zone
San Diego Book Award - Award Winning Finalist - The Infinity Zone

Mystic Ink’s titles have also won the acclaim of noted writers, among them Ray Bradbury, Charles Champlin - L.A. Times Critic Emeritus, Charles M. Schulz, Barnaby Conrad, Victor Villasenor, David Brin, and noted psychologist Stanley Krippner.

Based in San Diego since 2000, Mystic Ink Publishing is an independent publisher focusing on works of a spiritual, shamanic, new age, or transcendent nature as well as dramatic works of Phantastic Fiction © in the paranormal genres of magical realism, horror, supernatural thrillers, and science fiction.

The show will also be available as a downloadable podcast from the KX 93.5 web site.
