At a recent reading, a member of the audience asked if my memoir, LOST and FOUND: Surviving Displacement, Finding Love, Uncovering Secrets, was available as an e-book. At first, I was taken aback. I love the feel of a new book, the smell of the ink and way the words dance across the page. So I have resisted moving to digital books.
However, when I learned that her question was motivated by an eyesight problem, my attitude changed entirely. The reader suffers from macular degeneration and a digital reader makes it possible for her to read. I realized she was paying me a compliment. She wanted to read my book. It took a few weeks to convert the manuscript to a digital copy and then upload it to the various sellers.
Now I am proud to announce that my memoir is available in hard cover, soft cover and e-book for the Kindle (Amazon) and Nook (Barnes & Noble).
