Aegean Sun: Room 101

by Stephanie Wood

This fast paced contemporary story takes place at the Aegean Sun Hotel in Greece over the summer season. Focusing on the various visitors who stay in room 101 on a weekly basis, it interweaves with the stories of the hotel staff and holiday reps based there over a six month period.

The karaoke nights, bar crawls, barbeques and boat cruises are enjoyed by some more than others, but they all have a tale to tell. Several characters are open and honest whilst others keep secrets from their fellow holidaymakers, reps and even their own partners.

Costas may look like a Greek Pierce Brosnan, but is he smooth and refined or just vain and selfish? Michalis is the perfect young Adonis and has different girls every night, but will any of them find true love? Will Mark make it through a whole season with the extra duties he gets landed with? Just who are these people who either get lost on the day trip, go to Turkey with a hangover, hide an affair, wake up in the hospital, or end up sharing the same man without ever knowing?

This believable account of holiday fun, described by a former holiday rep herself, can be read as an on-going story of a Greek way of life, or as a series of connected short stories describing each character’s individual experiences. Either way, the entertainment is just beginningâ?¦



From Jarrow to Java

by Joe Writeson

A book based on some of the unique characters and situations encountered in the course of a large construction project in East Java during a crucial time in Indonesia’s history .

The cast includes all the usual suspects Europeans, Australians, Americans etc. but the starring roles are Indonesians.

Centred around the building of an Independent Power Plant consisting of eight coal-fired power stations, distribution system and extensive infrastructure with over ten thousand employees at the height of construction activities.

The account is based around the job, the impact on the area, the people, the ladies, the pubs, the problems, the perceptions…and misconceptions. Featuring an introduction to Javanese customs and culture plus their effect on interaction between expats and locals, including the often weird and wonderful way that Indonesians view foreigners ….plus how some Westerners behave when given the ‘keys to the sweetie shop’

The timescale covers immediately before, during and after the downfall of the Soeharto regime.

A lot of the characters recur throughout the stories, some of the chapters are linked or cross referenced.

All of the names have been changed and some players and scenarios are a sum of several people or events, on reflection I have removed some altogether to protect the innocent and prevent the guilty from repercussions by angry wives, girlfriendsâ?¦and mothers.

These are all my own work and based on actual events that I was directly involved in or witnessed personally, no hearsay, urban legends or second hand gossip.

Although based in Indonesia the anecdotes will appeal to anyone who would like to expand their social and geographical boundaries, and just possibly gain an insight into just how other people live, laugh, endure and survive ��
