“Ever wonder what it was like inside of the mind of the disenfranchised? Those that truly know of no peace within the borders of the United States? Those that battle every day against the demons that plague inside of them? Well here is your chance to get to know what truly lies inside of the imagination of the depraved and the honest. Jeffrey Bolden, with his earnest poetry and imaginative short stories, has graphically gifted us with a glimpse of a truly dark mind inside of his new book, Book Of Soul.
With poetry ranging from topics such as suicide and belonging or lack thereof, to short stories about what it would be like to work as Satan’s own hit man or maybe what it would be like to visit Heaven on an unexpected trip. This book takes you on a trip through hell and back only to find Heaven as this young man fins retribution in all of the ills he has experienced and the joy he has come to know as this dark mind finds it’s place in the world. Book Of Soul, ladies and gentleman. Guarantee there is nothing on the market quite like this. Quite this honest.”
Want to know one thing about me? I sincerely hate writing a biography about myself. It makes me feel as though I’m gloating, but here it is. I was born October 23, 1987 in San Diego, CA, but I am so Southern. Spent most of my life in the Southern States, living everywhere from New Orleans to McComb, MS to Gulfport, MS, but I’ve also had the distinct pleasure in living in places like Japan and Hawaii. But again, I didn’t just live in those places. If you were to look at my school transcript history and my moving history, you would probably think I was on a world tour my entire life and you wouldn’t be that wrong.
My mom was in the Navy so being in the Navy I got to travel and experience a lot. Some good and some bad just like everybody, but along the way, I’ve developed many talents. Not just artistically, but socially as well, which is why I may seem like such an enigma. Usually writers are known for their reclusive behavior, that’s why I get such strange looks when I tell people I am an author. Then they actually read my stuff and then people see why I’m an author. I’ve been called the voice before, an inspiration as well. That’s when I learned that I have power behind these words, and in the great word of Stan Lee, “With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility.” I have a responsibility to every person who was told would never achieve or would never grasp their dreams because of either where they come from or their past. I owe it to them to show the world that even a Bad Boy like myself can do good. See I told you it was going to seem like I’m gloating.
