Cover Reveal – Eyesight to the Blind by Richard F Holmes

Hi! It’s been a bit of a while! Here’s a cover reveal to get this blog back into the swing of things!!!


This is an extraordinary book that tells the story of the author’s journey from a place of darkness to one of light.  You will experience a roller coaster ride of extreme highs and lows as he takes your hand and leads you on a guided tour into the depths of depression and despair.  Whilst there you will feel his pain, you will be impressed by his brutal honesty and you will also laugh… a lot!  You will then ascend; out of the darkness and into the love.

This is not just another run-of-the-mill book on the paranormal; it is also an essential guide for daily living.  Author Richard F Holmes bares his soul as he gives the reader an insight into a medium’s work and life on the road, his well over 200 out-of-body experiences and how he has experienced different realms of existence and interacted with discarnate souls.  Incredibly, he then explains how it all pales into insignificance as life starts to reveal its true meaning.

“As I take the reader through each stage of my journey from childhood to present day, I have tried to write from the perspective of the mind-set and understanding that I had at the time.  The idea is that the reader evolves with the writer through mutual experience. Although I have refrained from using bad language, the language I have used reflects who I am; after all, you can take the boy out of North London, but you can never take North London out of the boy”.

The beauty of this book however, is the central message that the author conveys via his writing.  In life you do not have to be a victim.  Each and every one of us is powerful beyond our imagination.  It is only the thought that we are not that makes us victims.  Eyesight To The Blind is an exciting and powerful book that really needs to be read from cover to cover, it combines the paranormal with spirituality, but it is also a practical guide for daily living.





A Londoner by birth, Richard now lives in the South West of England.  He has written 13 books in the spiritual/self-help genre and also produced eight CDs; five of meditation and three of mantra chanting.  However, he has removed most of his prior work from circulation as he feels that it no longer represents who he is today.  As well as being a writer, Richard works in a hospice.  He is also an artist when he gets the inspiration, and worked as a medium for 17 years.

Since the so-called “shift” at the end of 2012, Richard has had what he describes as, “a series of eureka moments”, where life has started to reveal its true meaning.  As a result, he saw the futility of continuing his work as a medium and finally gave it up early in 2018.

Richard’s influences are, Ramana Maharshi, Neale Donald Walsch, Eckhart Tolle, Paramahansa Yogananda, Osho and Rupert Spira.






A Kind of Mad Courage


When I heard there was another Anthology book in the works, I was more than happy to be accepted as a contributor.  And when I say more than happy, I mean as ecstatically delighted as a small child in a sweet shop with an endless supply of money and no chance of becoming diabetic.  So then came the challenge, write something that is connected to motherhood, be it about a mother, or about a relationship with a mother etcetera.

 Well then, I am not a mother, more’s the pity, but I know a girl who is… Ok, so she doesn’t exist, not in the true sense of the word at least.  Fallon is the heroine (I hate that word, she hasn’t saved people from burning buildings and hasn’t a super power beyond an ability to consume vast quantities of caffeine) of my series and so it felt natural to me, to write about when she first became a mother.  It hadn’t made it into the first book, nor the second, nonetheless, I had written it.  So I sat down and I wrote it some more and ultimately, I am happy that I chose that. 

A Kind of Mad Courage was released last week, as the maker of many promo images, I had the blurbs for the 18 stories I didn’t write a little while before.  What can I say, there’s zombies and missing people, there are fractured maternal relationships and women dealing with becoming mothers.  You guys are in for a serious treat, 18 incredible authors and little old me have written stories for every facet of maternal relationships.  So in honour of mothers and in aid of charity, please pick up a copy and if you like it, let everyone know.  Post a review, recommend it to friends and enjoy the warm and fuzzies that doing something to help someone you don’t even know brings.
