The Soul Of A Dark Mind: “Book Of Soul” By Jeffrey Bolden

“Feel free to dive into the mind of the struggling artist… but beware and know that you enter such darkness at your own risk, and know it is always darkest before the dawn.”

 

“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.”

Author Profile:

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.

Book Launch: September 12, 2012 “The Runaway” by Nephylim, From Flying With Red Haircrow

Upcoming Event: Chat With Nephylim & Red Haircrow at Love Romances Café on September 6, 2012 http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LoveRomancesCafe/

 

 

“When all you ever wished for is the last thing you ever wanted….”

Description: “Cierrai is running away from a past that’s still breathing down his neck. Jack has no past, his memory wiped in the accident that killed his parents. They meet and their lives move forward like stones skimming the surface of the water, dipping into memories that want to surface and those that want to lie buried forever.

Together, they struggle to come to terms with what happened in the past and where they want to go in the future, but can Jack cope with a man who likes to dress in leather mini-skirts and silk kimonos? Can Cierrai trust Jack with the secrets of his past; secrets he can’t escape, secrets that are snapping at his heels?

When those secrets catch up, forcing Cierrai back to the life he’d left, a life that was slowly draining his life away, he and Jack’s love is both threatened and tested by forces from without and within.”

About The Author:

 

Born into a poor but loving mining family in the United Kingdom, Nephylim grew up in the beautiful and history rich South Wales Valleys, becoming the first in her family to attend university. As a lawyer practicing Family Law for several years, the profession allowed Nephylim to learn more about human nature at its worst and best moments, and develop empathy and a view of life not limited by social standing or background.

Tapping into the heritage of her people that throughout Earth’s ages welcomed the wandering bard into the hearts of their villages as keepers of lore, Nephylim trained as a Druid and brings the richness of her Celtic past and spiritual training to enrich and elevate her writing. Since a child Nephylim has been fascinated with other worlds, which exist within and alongside her own and has reveled in creating worlds and characters for others to enjoy.

Despite lack of family support, Nephylim continued writing privately and eventually found the Gay Authors website. With the positive response and a warm welcome received, she found the confidence to pursue her passion to a greater degree. Feeling gay fiction was a woefully neglected corner of the market where readers were all too often presented with what amounted to erotica, Nephylim strives to write quality gay fiction where sex and sexuality is not the central premise. Instead, concentration is given to character and narrative development through storytelling that goes beyond the physical.

Nephylim still resides in Wales, UK, and enjoys writing, reading, art, and taking part in medieval reenactments.

New Release: Percevale-I. The Ghosts of Time by Anne de Gandt- Currently Free!

Another intriguing tale by French author Anne de Gandt, whom I was privileged to interview, and whose other works V.I.T.R.I.O.L and Decades I’ve previously reviewed here on Flying With Red Haircrow.

Now, her work The Ghosts of Time is free at Smashwords for a limited time. Translated from French to English, the description for this short work of literary fiction written for older children or young adults can also be enjoyable to discerning adults.

Description: “Kings, Queens and Witches in sleeping castles can be full of surprises! An old name, some mysterious dreams… The heroine, helped by her friends Roiteleau & Croquignol, tries to find a hidden piece of her past. But sometimes the borderline between dream and reality is thin ….”

Take the opportunity to discover of an author you may not have read or even heard of, but who creates stories full of rich imagery made even more vivid by the exotic European flair and use of English in ways that continue to surprise and delight.

Now Available: “My Right Leg Is Tastier Than My Left” by Andrew John Rainnie, a Travelogue with a Twist!

Released June 3, 2012:

In 2011 screenwriter, filmmaker and journalist Andrew John Rainnie quit his life to follow his dream and travel the world. Relive the adventures as he charts this exciting and turbulent journey, often mixing his trademark blunt yet comedic opinions of the places he visits with deep personal insights into his past. What emerges is a poignant, poetic and often humorous insight into the lifestyle of a globetrotting aficionado, a mix between On the Road and An Idiot Abroad.

The 342 page book charts Rainnie’s adventures through South-East Asia, Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, South American, North America and Canada. Each chapter opens with a photograph from the vast well collected during the author’s adventures. While many travelogues have been written, Rainnie speaks with a frank, often brutal manner, offering those who may be thinking of travelling solo a rare, unique insight into the physical and emotional difficulties faced alone on the open road, as well as the pleasures of escaping the daily rat race.

The book is available from  Amazon’s Kindle store, as well as on other eReader formats via  Smashwords for £0.77 / $0.99. The book should be available on Apple’s iBookstore in the near future.
