Aloha Joe in Hawaii by Joe Holt

Cover - revised - reducedThis heart-warming and inspiring memoir tells of Joe Holt’s journey to find self-acceptance and peace in the beautiful state of Hawaii.

After suffering a tumultuous childhood, a disheartening period in the military and a hit-and-run accident which nearly killed him, Joe moved to Hawaii for a new start. Having made the decision to leave his troubled past behind, he immersed himself in Hawaiian culture, adopting the ways of aloha and living by natural means. This book paints a colourful picture of life in Hawaii, as well as encouraging readers to pursue love and forgiveness.

Joe writes with wisdom and compassion, even when discussing the darker parts of his life; but he doesn’t want sympathy. He wants to share the discoveries about life and peace he has made, and help his readers begin the journey to their own happiness.

This book is a very personal and sincere account, but not just one of Joe’s experiences in a new home. His message throughout is clear: once you find yourself living somewhere that you love, everything else will fall into place.

Sample text:

I’m waiting for him. Kneeling on the padded floor, naked, waiting. I’m mentally exhausted from my day-to-day life and am grateful to be here; here, where I’m able to shut it all off, to relax, to find inner peace. Soon, my mind shuts off; the rhythm of my breathing is steadying. I have achieved the edges of subspace.

I feel my master’s hands in my long, dark brown hair. I break formation to look him in his deep blue eyes before I fall into submission. When his fingers leave my hair, I don’t hear him walk away from me. I wait for his instruction, ready to please him, only to be surprised by the tool he drops into my line of sight.

“Thorn, Master,” I reply, remaining still.

“Good,” he praises, and I realize he’s testing me. My first lesson with my master involved my three safe words: rose, which means I want to end the session, petal, which means we pause the session until I am comfortable, and thorn, which means I have reached a hard limit. Honestly, I’m not in the mood to be tested today. I want the illusion of surrendering. Safe word tests and requests from my master break this illusion. I am aware that as the sub, I am the one in control of what is and is not done with my body. But it is a reality that is easily forgotten when you are playing the game. I trust my master, I trust that he will not hurt me. I crave the illusion; the illusion allows my mind to be free, to float in subspace.

Sins Of The Father by R J Palmer

 

More information about the book

Sins of the FatherSins of the Father is a chilling tale of the supernatural penned by R J Palmer, an independent writer and author of Birthright. This book is set in a feudal England and centres on a young orphan called Bowen. He is brought up by monks who abuse him with frequent whippings and other sadistic punishments – even for the most minor of infractions.

The book then shifts to the present day and a Midwest minister called Aaron who meets an autistic child with seemingly no past at a psychiatric hospital. For Aaron this is just the beginning of a descent into terror – a journey which will force him to make a decision which will end with him risking his own life to save the boy.

Sample text

As Aaron watched in fascination and awe that changed quickly to horror, Lucian sat straight up in bed and abruptly stopped screaming.  His eyes, normally of that purest amethyst color and staring fixedly to the upper right met Aaron’s for the first time.  They darkened with intense anguish before they turned as black as ink in the space of a second and Lucian opened his mouth.

The voice that came from him could not have been his for it was not childlike or sing song and it was not the high pitched voice of a boy of six.  It was low, cold and hateful and it vibrated with fury, awareness and suppressed power.  It crawled along Aaron’s skin as if it had a life of its own and made him feel nauseous and weak.  Its cold caress could be felt reverberating from every corner of the room.  Aaron fought for strength and control of his stomach as the voice that came from Lucian but was not Lucian’s was also accompanied by a sickening stench like that of rot and decay.  There was death and agony and bitter, undiluted hate in the chilling quality of that voice and Aaron’s eyes watered and he gagged with the putrescence.

“Mae yn byw gwarcheidwad.  Mae giât wedi ei agor.  Mae bechodau y tad a gludir ar y mab.  Thirsts Dialedd ar gyfer gwaed.  Rhaid i’r aberth cael eu gwneud.”

Aaron was bitterly cold and shaking with terror as the power of that voice carried him to a place of utter despair and he knew beyond any shadow of a doubt that he was no match, was not equal to the task of helping Lucian no matter how he tried.  No matter what he did, he would lose and he knew keenly that he should just give up now.  What could he do against a voice or presence of that magnitude?  It was a fools’ errand and the effort was lost before he’d ever begun.
