Open Road To Publish eBook Mark Salzman Memoir

Open Road Integrated Media is publishing an eBook original memoir from best-selling writer Mark SalzmanThe Man in the Empty Boat is about a year that Salzman spent suffering from anxiety, panic attacks and then was faced with the death of his sister.

Salzman described the book in a statement: ”The piece began not as a book but as notes for a monologue that I performed at the Sun Valley Writer’s Conference in 2010. Jeffrey Sharp, president of Open Road, happened to be in the audience that day. He’s a dad like me and the story seemed to hit him dead center. His enthusiasm for the piece really lifted my spirits, and convinced me to try writing a longer version of it for publication. Follow the enthusiasm, that’s my motto.”

The title goes on sale tomorrow and will include an eBook, as well as a print-on-demand version.
