September 23, 2009. I was in the kitchen soaking up the reports of Ond0y in the newspapers. My morning tea had become tepid, although it was just a moment ago that I had prepared it.

Self publishing has always been around, but now it seems more the norm than the exception, at least with first-time authors. It is easy to self-publish, but how do you sell the books?
