journey to learn what brings healing to people and how soul growth guides the outcome of
all healing. MacKimmie, who inherited his healing powers from his Scottish great-grandfather,
shares his upbringing, insights and experiences with surprising humor and refreshing
candor. Presence of Angels: A Healerís Life is an energy-infused book that offers a
powerful message of hope, self-empowerment and transformation.
"Jim MacKimmie is the real deal. For more than half a century this respected healer has
graced generations of spiritual health seekers with his gifts. This long-awaited book is a
striking tribute to his fascinating life, revealing the ups and downs of living with his Godgiven
powers," said Cheri Bianchini, author of The Healthy Way.
The IPPY Awards were conceived in 1996 as a broad-based, unaffiliated awards program
open to all members of the independent publishing industry. The awards are intended to
bring increased recognition to the thousands of exemplary independent, university, and
self-published titles produced each year. The IPPY rewards those who exhibit the courage,
innovation, and creativity to bring about change in the world of publishing.
"From our viewpoint, independent publishing continues to mature, improve, and become a
more vital part of the world of books and reading. I applaud the courage of authors and
publishers who aren't afraid to take chances and break new ground. This is where the innovation
in the world of publishing comes from," said Jim Barnes, Independent Publisher
Online editor and award coordinator.
The 2006 Independent Publisher Book Awards attracted books from more than 1,500 publishers
around the world, including all 50 U.S. states, 7 Canadian provinces, and 16 foreign
countries. More than 200 children's picture books were entered this year. Awards will be
presented at Book Expo America in Washington, D.C., at the 10th annual IPPY Award
