Thanks to the service offered by one of the American Internet sites, anyone can publish their own book and offer it to potential readers almost without intermediaries, according to local media.

The technology developed by the site's organizers is simple: first the author places on the site his own created layout Works, choosing with the help of a special simple computer program the size of the book, its design and cover design. After that, visitors interested in the book leave the order for publication and make payment. Only after that, the publisher undertakes to print the print run - in accordance with the number of buyers. 'It's just an incredible feeling - to keep a book in hand,' says Catherine Dyer, a 49-year-old resident of Atlanta, Georgia. Together with her four sisters, she wrote a cookbook and found buyers on Internet. 'I knew that it would take a very long time to sign a contract with an ordinary publishing house, and when the order was published it was launched immediately, Dyer noted.

Sister Dyer ordered 100 copies of his book (cost $22.76) via Internet and distributes it independently - through local bookstores. They have extensive creative plans: 'Because I know that I can publish my work regardless of the opinion of the publishers,' Catherine emphasized. Since its founding in 2002, the 'website for graphomaniacs' has produced 236,000 volumes. The number of customers is constantly growing, in November last year it reached 14 745.

Last summer, one of the largest online auctions joined the 'samizdat' network project, and now not only writers will be able to publish and sell their works 'to order', But also musicians and amateur filmmakers.
