My Book is Out

The book World of Wonders: the Lyrics and Music of Bruce Cockburn, by James Heald(me).  Read the Press Release here for more details.

Jim Heald is an author, poet, singer-songwriter, and guitarist.  He grew up in the suburbs of New York City.  He attended Colby College and Manchester College, Oxford where he studied English Literature and East Asian Studies.  He attended graduate school briefly at the University of Pennsylvania, where he studied Oriental languages and history, and received a Masters in Urban Planning from the University of Illinois in Chicago. 

Jim picked up the guitar in the mid 70’s and started turning his poetry into songs.  He’s played professionally since the late 70’s around Chicago, Austin, and the Washington DC area.  He was a two time finalist in the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Competition and has two CDs available.  He lives with his wife Laura in Alexandria, Virginia.

Now, here’s the deal.

Next 5 days ONLY Starting Tomorrow Morning, August 31

The Kindle version of my book will be available exclusively from here for FREE.

The paperback edition will also available on Amazon in about 5-7 days for $9.99 and it looks great.

If you have a Kindle or a Kindle-compatible device (most cell phones, laptops, desktop computers, tablets, including the iPad – there’s really no excuse), I encourage you to download the Kindle app and the book and send this email to any or ALL of your friends who have an interest in Folk music and Singer-Songwriters. 

Thanks.  Comments and Reviews are welcome.

Take care.

Jim Heald
