Author talk with Jeffrey Sussman, author of “Max Baer and Barney Ross, Jewish Heroes of Boxing”

Author talk with Jeffrey Sussman, author of “Max Baer and Barney Ross, Jewish Heroes of Boxing”

Sat
12/3
1-3 PM

In the 1920s and 30s, anti-Semitism was rife in the United States and Europe. Jews needed symbols of strength and demonstrations of courage against their enemies, and they found both in two champions of boxing: Max Baer and Barney Ross. Baer was the only Jewish heavyweight champion in the twentieth century, while Ross was considered one of the greatest welterweight and lightweight champions of the era. Although their careers never crossed paths, their boxing triumphs played a common role in lifting the spirits of persecuted Jews.

Jeffrey Sussman is the author of ten non-fiction books, as well as numerous articles and short stories about boxing. He is a regular writer for the premier boxing website www.boxing.com. Sussman is the president of a public relations and marketing firm based in New York City (www.powerpublicity.com).

So You Self Published – Now What? with author Jeff Nichols

All three of Jeff Nichols’ self-published books got press and were optioned for bigger things. One made it all the way to the big screen.

So how does the self publishing author do it?
Jeff’s talk will include how to choose an editor, what is the difference between an editor and a professional reader, how to upload a book on Amazon and Kindle for free, how to get friends to do covers for free/pay, how to get paid speaking gigs, how to get on NPR, how to run a successful book signing and how to deal with independent book stores.
