National Novel Writing Month Event: Self-Publishing and What Comes Next
This presentation will include the journey which Merle R. Saferstein undertook as she wrote and self-published Room 732. She will explain how social networking, print-on-demand, and eBooks have made a difference for authors as well as for readers. Because one of the greatest challenges in self-publishing is marketing one’s book, she will also discuss this important phase of the process.
For twenty-six years, Merle F. Saferstein served as the director of educational outreach at the Holocaust Documentation and Education Center in South Florida working closely with Holocaust survivors ensuring that their legacy is perpetuated for this and future generations. Since 1974 she has completed over 350 volumes of personal journals in addition to compiling and editing resource manuals for the state of Florida and books for non-profit organizations. She currently facilitates workshops which focus on preserving and passing along the essence of one’s life.
