Hello and welcome to our bookcase!

If you don't know us yet ... we are Bert Holtes & Wop Sietsma, from the Netherlands.

Let's get straight to the point, which is ...
We have been able to add a very special edition to our bookcase.

A book we wrote ourselves!

After a long time of writing and research, we managed to publish our first book under our own management.

We think it will provide many of you with some great reading moments.

There is something for everyone:

The eBook for the digital reader, easy to take with you on holiday.

As a promotion, this eBook, and part2, can be downloaded,

read and given away free of charge.

The Paperback for the reader who wants to hold a paper book.

Why publish the book ourselves

and why is the eBook free?

Dozens of English-language books are being published every day.

This is a very small part of the total amount of manuscripts that publishers receive.
It is understandable that publishers need a lot of time to separate the wheat from the chaff.

That is why we decided to skip this long and uncertain process and to develop and sell the book entirely independently.

Not to earn extra money, we will already be satisfied if we can pay our costs out of the sales of the paper version, but to be in charge of the direction ourselves.

We want as many people as possible to be able to read the story.
For the best distribution, you need satisfied readers, as well as a publishing house.

For international distribution, we publish on Amazon.com.
That's a self-publishing system that enables us to use this online publishing house to distribute and sell our eBook and paper book all around the world.

But as a novice writer, that's not all.

You have to let the world know that you have written a book and for that, advertising is indispensable.

That is why we have decided to offer the eBooks as a free promotion.
This way, you can easily obtain the eBooks and give it away as a gift.

We ask you to bring our book to the attention of everyone you're in contact with.

If you want to help us, all you have to do is give away the eBooks,
or spread the link to our website.

After all, what could be more fun than giving away a present?!
