Editorial Reviews

Kelly Davis
"RJ Hamilton boldly puts himself out on a limb with Self Convictions - there are virtually no sympathetic characters in the book whatsoever. Fortunately, it was a risk that paid off because it was for that very reason I found it impossible to put down!"
Stacy Pierce
From start to finish I was intrigued by the idea of telekinesis in R. J. Hamilton’s book, Self Convictions, as I’ve been in real life. However, the fast paced and sometimes violent journey of the main character, Brandon Hudson, went beyond what I could ever imagine. As his extraordinary powers emerge, one is thrust into a thrilling journey as his insanity comes to life through his experiences and the events that occur in the lives of those around him.This story was a page turner!
Julie Clayton
Long before Heroes was a popular television series, author R.J. Hamilton was writing a story in his mind about a young man with extraordinary powers. The protagonist of Self Convictions, Brandon Hudson, has the power of telekinesis. Not tamely moving pens across a table, but a great force that seems to come from inside of his head, someone else's voice and unchecked emotions, willing him to commit murderous and appalling acts.

    Fast-paced fantasy... highly recommended!

    From start to finish I was intrigued by the idea of telekinesis in R. J. Hamilton's book, Self Convictions, as I've been in real life. However, the fast paced and sometimes violent journey of the main character, Brandon Hudson, went beyond what I could ever imagine. As his extraordinary powers emerge, one is thrust into a journey as his insanity comes to life through his experiences and the events that occur in the lives of those around him. This story was a page turner that I had to force myself to read at a slower pace. I was eager to finish it the first day because it snatches the reader's attention from the Prelude holding onto until the very last page.

    Brandon is a character that one might envy, love and feel empathy for. He appears at times to be a lost soul struggling with his real powers. Every time I thought one thing was going to happen, the author took the story in a different direction. As each event took place I felt a range of emotions-sadness, fear, anxiety, anger, nervousness and love. The author created an extremely vivid story making it hard to believe this is his first book. I highly recommend this fantasy book to readers looking to get lost in the mind of one with telekinesis. It might make you think twice about wanting the ability to read minds or seek revenge on someone using your mind rather than your hands.

    The author challenges the reader to think about becoming at the very least a friend to the Hudson family, feel for them or wish to be with one of them. After reading this story I've decided to watch them from afar.

    This book is awesome!

    I got an advance copy from a website I'd heard about from a friend. I loved this book! The characters were so mysterious. The fact R.J. wrote this book about telepathy when there are so many about vampires right now was a great move! His writing style is so much different than anything that I've ever read. I was utterly impressed and can't wait for the next book to come out!

    Fantastic story!

    I got the book early by going to one of the author's book signings. I am so glad I did. This book is amazing! The writing style is refreshing, the story will keep you guessing. The author has done an amazing job with enveloping the reader to make you feel you are taking every breath with the characters. I can't wait for the second installment.
