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

4.0 von 5 Sternen Sad and haunting .... 28. Juni 2012
Von Steven - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
A genuinely sad and haunting supernatural novel about a curse from the deep past and its repercussions in the present day, Sins of the Father really did scare me! The young boy at the center of the novel is a real person, and his story is very moving. The book has atmosphere to spare, and its plot is well-controlled. It's my humble opinion that some of the passages are too wordy, but another reader might as well disagree. In any event, recommended.

Von Laura Freeman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
If you like Gothic mysteries full of supernatural intrigue and more read Sins of the Father by R.J. Palmer. it will keep you enthralled until the very end. R.J. weaves the scenes and makes you feel every drop of emotion described. You feel the pain of Bowen and his ambition to make his own path. The books pull you in so much so that it will be hard to let it go at all.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Poignant Paranormal 3. Mai 2012
Von Athanasios - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was a beta reader for this and RJ is a friend. Full disclosure aside Sins was a well written and touching story.

The great parts of the story were that the author doesn't spoon feed the plot to the reader, one has to connect the dots on one's own. Bowen is an unfortunate innocent who is the plaything of an ancient power seeking to return to this world. As the title suggests it is due to wrongs and transgressions Bowen was never a part of.

RJ makes you feel and ache for this child and Bowen is the best part of Sins, yet the other main character of Aaron is less sympathetic and didn't take hold of my interest as much as the boy did.

The detractions in Sins are hardly worth mentioning but I wished it could've had a more direct plot. By that I mean there wasn't as much conflict between the two main characters and the ancient evil until the final parts where the story ends.

This by no means makes Sins of the Father a lesser tale it just doesn't quite reach the point I would've had it go as an armchair auteur. Yet the obvious must be stated, I'm not RJ and this isn't my tale, but this is my review, and RJ told the story she wanted to tell the way she wanted to.

In closing RJ writes with a confidence and self assuredness of what she wants to say and how she wants to say it you rarely see.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Sins of the Father 22. September 2012
Von Erin Davies - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Much of what I have to say regarding R.J. Palmer's Sins of the Father is critical of the piece, but that being said I don't want to sound discouraging. Palmer's talents are entirely evident despite what I felt to be an awkward execution.

In many places, the wording felt forced, almost like the author was trying to dress up the text. "Even as the question crossed his mind Aaron felt guilty and as more habit than anything else, he ducked his head in the manner of a recalcitrant child squirming under the chastisement of a parent or schoolmaster." Grammatically there is nothing wrong with the sentence, but to me, the terminology feels awkward and heavy.

Additionally, I found a lot of repetition in the text. Loc. 551: Aaron is so upset by the whipping of the young boy he takes the punishment himself. Loc. 571: Aaron is reflecting on the incident and expresses shock that the church would impose such methods of control and discipline against a child. Loc 1013: Aaron silently questions what a child could have done to deserve such harsh treatment. Loc. 1034: Aaron muses over what atrocious, awful or sinful act could warrant such extreme measures as whipping. Loc. 1115: Aaron can't fathom the reasons a child would be repeatedly whipped. It often seemed I was going in circles.

Also for a piece that to some extent takes place in the past, I felt a little cheated. The monastery was wonderfully described, but the rest felt either underdeveloped or stereotypical. Sins of the Father is not marketed as a historical which gives Palmer some wiggle room, but I think it is something to consider if she returns to historic settings in the future.

I've made a lot of criticisms thus far, but I do have reason to appreciate the effort. There were scenes, the cell where Bowen tends the dying monk comes to mind, that were nothing short of haunting. Dark, tense, emotional moments that were flawlessly executed under Palmer's pen. These are the moments in which Palmer shined. I literally had chills racing up and down my spine.

Ultimately Sins of the Father left me unsatisfied, but at the same time I think Palmer has the imagination and talent necessary to achieve great success in her field. Skill grows with time and experience and I for one will be interested to see what this particular author comes out with next.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Heart-wrenching and Haunting 17. Dezember 2012
Von The Kindle Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
"Sins Of The Father" by R.J. Palmer is a bone chilling, hair-raising story of abuse, good verses evil, and self-sacrifice. This story starts off with a bang, gets its hooks into you and doesn't let go until long after the final page has been turned.

At the beginning the reader is introduced to Bowen, a little boy living with sadistic monks sometime during the medieval days in England. The opening scene has this little boy surrounded by these monks being severely whipped while they chant `Bless the child...save the child'. Bowen doesn't understand why they are doing this to him except for the excuse that it is in the name of God.

Fast-forward to today and Aaron is a pastor going through a bit of crisis of faith. One Sunday, while getting ready to walk to the pulpit to deliver his sermon, he questions his faith again; he gets dizzy and is spiritually transported back in time to witness one of Bowen's beatings. As he witnesses what is happening to this poor child he tries to step in front of the whip to protect him. It works, sort of. The monks can't see him yet the whip connects to his back and not the child's. When he is reconnected to his body in this time and comes to, his back has been shredded as if he really did take the whipping for the poor child. The following morning Lena, a nurse and parishioner, stops by his house to check on him, sees his injuries and bandages him up thinking he was injured by sleep walking. She gives him the name of a doctor she knows that could help him with his sleep disorder.

Not long after he seeks help for his `sleep problem' he receives a phone call from the local mental institution asking if he could stop by to see Phillip. Phillip is someone he knows as one of the homeless in the area that he has tried to help in the past. He agrees to come in and when he arrives Phillip tells him that he has something to show him. He leads Aaron to the day room and introduces him to a homeless autistic boy named Lucien who just happens to look exactly like the little boy he saw the monks beating. Phillip says he called him because they both have the same colored eyes...purple. And this is where the story really takes off and the reader really starts to learn how the characters all interconnect and I can't reveal any more without giving anything away.

R.J. Palmer has written a heart-wrenching story that combines several genres. Her writing is strong and she deals with several difficult subjects with sensitivity. By the time the final page is turned the reader has a real connection to the characters and that is what makes this a good book and Ms. Palmer a good writer. As a reader I felt many different emotions and it isn't often that this happens while reading a book. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well-written book that does more than just entertain you.
