Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Hi there. I'm R.J. Palmer and I'm told that I should write a little something about myself at which point I should probably tell you that if you slog through this I give you kudos, you've done very well. You see, there is nothing the least bit interesting about me and in truth sometimes I believe that I live vicariously through characters of my own creation in which case I should probably seek professional help straightaway. I could bore you with dry facts recited by rote but that would be contra-indicative of my personality type which demands that I at least make this somewhat interesting regardless of the enormity of the task involved. Easier said than done I can assure you. Good God, you guys want to know MORE about me? Okay, fine then. Here goes. My husband has longish brown hair and pretty hazel eyes. Ooohhhh, wait. That had nothing to do with me, did it? You can blame Wodke Hawkinson for this bio because you really got me onto having to think about the least related answer while tying it all together. Should I get more serious now? Nah! Here's the 411 on the Head Wingnut in Charge...Or at least I am in my head. I'm an awesome writer and I buy in bulk whenever possible because the dozens of kids that I have eat a LOT! Okay, so that was a bit of an exaggeration but they seem like dozens when they all get going. Can I get an "Amen?" And why does it seem like all of them like to get an ornery attitude at the exact same time? Do they synchronize their watches and plan this stuff ahead of time? One of my favorite colors is that orangey yellow of the school bus even though it's a horrible eye sore. Okay, now that you all know I'm a writer with a husband and children, I could let you know that I like to drink Guinness stout and I got mad when they took the widget out of the bottle. You know, that little plastic thingy that made noise when you were getting the stuff that looks like coffee grounds (Mmmm...coffee) out of the bottom of your beer bottle. I think people decided that the widget took up too much space that could've been better used for more beer. Not that I don't understand, I guess I just like crunchy beer or something like that. I like to chew that last swallow of my stout. I'm going to stop this bio before it gets any more idiotic. You can find me at http://rjpalmer.blogspot.com

Tough audience here...... 2. Juli 2011
Von Frankie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I am not related to the author and do not know her. Actually, this is my first review because I feel that most people are more articulate at it than I could ever be....but I felt compelled to respond to several reviews that are here.

Now, the reviewers: Her husband identified himself as such and can't be faulted for being a proud husband. Michael B. Mitchell provided a bad review without reading it simply because he 'thought' he couldn't share it? That's really dreadful and shows what kind of person he is. Odysseus called it utter trash....really???? I have read glowing reviews, bought books, and quickly removed them from my Kindle and from my account. This was not one of them.

I actually enjoyed this Kindle 'book'. An intriguing story with interesting characters and I would have liked to have known a little more at the end. I hope Ms. Palmer is not put off and continues writing. The writing is, without doubt, wordy and some of the better reviews had good points. There are a number of places where a line should have started as a new paragraph or even as a new chapter. Ms. Palmer has an excellent and enviable vocabulary and once I got into the rhythm of her writing, I found myself involved in her manner of storytelling. And what's wrong with being self-published? I would guess that it takes quite a bit of courage to put something that one has labored over out there for everyone to critique and believe we should be encouraging new writers with positive comments and not viciously undermining them.

Intriguing story idea, poor writing 2. April 2011
Von GypsyLady - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I decided to try this book even though 2 of the 3 existing reviews were not favorable. I'm on middle ground with this one. The idea for the story itself was intriguing. Raine is the main character and he has had his brain pre-programmed, from a young age, as an experiment by a group of research scientists and doctors. He escapes from the institution where he has been forced to grow up. After his escape he marries, is involved in an accident and is "rescued" from the scene by someone who wants his returning memories erased. His memories are wiped out and he is "placed" in a rural area to carry on his life, all the while under intense surveillance of the RevTech group. His wife, left behind with twin daughters, is made to believe he is dead. At some point a few years later Raine and his "widow", by chance, meet up with each other. He experiences flashes of memory once again and strange paranormal activity seems to revolve around his moods and thoughts. This begins the climax to the end of the story to see if good wins over evil and if Raine will decide to tap into his paranormal powers to save his family, who have been kidnapped in an attempt to draw him out. I'm not sorry I took the time to read this. The long, long descriptive phrases throughout the book made the reading laborious and tedious. Many of those phrases were unneccesary and had little to do with setting the scene. There was also gross over-use of the word "however" and it wasn't used correctly grammatically. There was also over-use of other words such as "preternatural". There were many grammatical errors and poor editing of this Kindle edition. However, if you don't mind wading through the extraneous wording and errors, the story has merit.

Drained all my energy just trying to read it ! 24. März 2011
Von prairie sage - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Every sentence in this book is bloated with excessive descriptions. The writing style of the author is Over-the-Top abuse of pronouns and adverbs. I liked the book in the beginning but could not force myself past the first 1/3 of it. It was like trying to force down really sweet wine.

way too much 8. April 2011
Von Plan maker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Even though the storyline is interesting, it comes across in laboriously descriptive verbage, that have padded the book out way too much, perhaps in an effort to give the scenes full imagery. But seriously, one or two metaphors per paragraph to describe the scene is enough.
I think Shakespeare might have been impressed, but I find it exhausting.
On another note, the author can obviously write, and has had a good idea for a book, but execution needs to be worked on. More content & storyline, less tangential meandering.

Descriptive 26. Februar 2013
Von courtney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
You could erase one adjective per page and cut this novel in half! The over use of foreign, multisyllabic, adjectives takes away from the better parts of the story. The story while interesting is definitely hampered by the author's use of over the top descriptive phrasing. I don't really to need to know the intricacies of the setting's wallpaper or to read an entire page detailing of the act of pumping petrol into Lynn's car. It completely takes away from the story. I found the sentence structure odd and uncomfortable. The author's fear of ending a sentence with a preposition made for oddly worded sentences that were poorly punctuated. There was too much coincidence the plot and the characters were not defined as well as they could have been. I have read but never heard a person use words like 'ignoble' 'nary' or 'pray tell' as often as in this book. I was completely drawn in by the mysterious circumstance of how Raine came to be at the asylum, so wanting to see that resolved kept me reading. I finished the book in two days but only read 2/3 of the actual words as I prefer a much better structured and more concise read. I think she had a great idea but should remember: less is more.
