SAN DIEGO, Calif. – In addition to winning First Place in the San Diego Book Awards, a renowned storyteller’s sometimes mystic, always adventuresome journey to awareness in his new memoir Spirit Matters (published by Mystic Ink Publishing) was honored as an Award Winning Finalist in the autobiography/memoir category of the National Best Books 2008 Awards, sponsored by USA Book News. Author Matthew J. Pallamary’s spiritually important message is stirring the minds, bodies and souls of readers as they follow him from an Irish Catholic ghetto in Boston to the Amazonian jungles of Peru.
What reviewers are saying about Spirit Matters:
“Spirit is immaterial, but incredibly vital to a person’s well being. “Spirit Matters” is author Matthew Pallamary’s personal and candid reflections on finding his own spirituality. His tale takes him from the harsh streets of Boston all the way across the Caribbean to the Amazon, where he soon figures out what really matters in life. A guide to becoming aware of one’s true spirituality, “Spirit Matters” is a must for those who are going through life with no direction and no contentment.” Midwest Book review
“Spirit Matters is an inspiring journey of healing and self transformation coming straight from the heart. Pallamary’s search for truth is not only a page turner, it is energized with a blue print for evolution. Bravo!” Amazon five star reviewer.
“Matthew J. Pallamary’s Spirit Matters: A Memoir is a powerful attestation that splendidly recreates one man’s quest for truth.” Norman Goldman, editor of BookPleasures.com
“There are many, many books out there about spiritual paths and how to raise one’s consciousness. Most of these books are written with an attitude of teacher/student and a small degree of superiority or humorous self-deprecation. How delightful that this is not the case with Matthew Pallamary… how refreshing, how human, how honest. Kaye Trout, MBR Reviewer’s Bookwatch
“An inspiring literary work with a deeper understanding of the connection to the spirit that carries us through life.” Amazon five star reviewer.
“Spirit touches us in every moment of our existence; only most of us are caught up in the dramas that we have created in our lives, blinding us to a reality far greater than anything we can imagine with our rational minds,” says Pallamary. “It is simply a matter of awareness.”
