The first author to transcend
paper and succeed in the
digital world and social media

“I make my living from my copyrights, but at this very moment I am not concerned about this. I have to adapt myself. Not only by connecting more directly with my readers–something unthinkable a few years ago–but also by developing a new language, Internet-based, that will be the language of the future: direct, simple, without being superficial. But I am investing in something that every single writer in the world appreciates: to have his texts read by a maximum of people. Internet has taught me this: don’t be afraid of sharing your ideas. Don’t be afraid of engaging others to voice their ideas.”
(Excerpt from the speech at Frankfurt Book Fair, 2008)
