I'm going to be a writer
Since last week it is possible to publish and sell your own book online via the famous Dutch webshop Bol.com. Great news for people like me, who love write and have always dreamed of their own book. The new initiative is called Brave New Books where every random person can publish his book and sell it on Bol. No annoying book publishers, but you being independent.
It is not a new concept though, as more and more websites have popped up with the same idea: jouwboek.nl, mijnbestseller.nl, tenpages.com but it is indeed increasing and therefore striking. The expectation is that in three years 25.000 books wil be published. I'm going to try out tenpages.com myself soon.
