Just saw this on LinkedIn. It's a way to sell things to your friends and followers that you create. I've often thought it would be fun to just sell small things and gain awareness for a newbie project without having to go through such hoopla to do it. For instance, to get a book on the bookshelves, you have to have lawyers and contracts and then wait a year to see it. And you get a tiny cut of the price. Sometimes, I just want to write a story or publish a coloring book without all of the fuss. Or the expense.
