Jim Neglia Announces Release of 'Onward and Upward'

New Memoir Takes Readers Around the World in Pursuit of a Dream – a Dream of a Career in Music

East Hanover, N.J. (PRWEB) October 24, 2013

Wanting to share his story of drive, determination and dedication with the rest of the world, author Jim Neglia penned “Onward and Upward” (published by AuthorHouse) to show readers what it takes to make it in the music field.

“I have wanted to write a book about the relentless determination it takes to succeed in the arts for a while,” says Neglia, “Whether as a young artist in New York City, as a music coordinator of a Broadway musical or as a musician traveling through Europe, I will share with you excitement, acclaim and culture.”

“Onward and Upward” is the true account of the author’s pursuit of a career in music. Readers are taken around the world as he journeys far and wide to make his dream come true. “I share my stories of culture, family, laughter, friendship, wisdom and heartache,” he says, “with a generous splash of the likes of Strauss, motorcycle chases and Hollywood.”

Neglia believes that any aspiring artist, would-be world traveler or entrepreneur will benefit from reading this book. “Learn from another's experience about dedication, passion and culture,” he says. “Partly by means of behind-the-scene memoirs, partly by means of journal entries, we will walk hand in hand on this most extraordinary journey through a life in the arts.”
