SUCCESS - A superb example of a successful self-published is the US author Amanda Hocking, just 27. According to an article in i on the 16th of November 2011, Amanda joined an elite literary club on 12 (herself included) who have racked up their millionth Kindle sale. She uploaded her first e-book: 'My Blood Approves' last spring. Within a day she had sold five books. By the end of the month 36. Six months and several sequels later, she'd sold 100,000 books. Amanda now sells 9,000 books a day on average. Her books have succeeded without a marketing campaign, newspaper reviews, etc. Selling by way of buyer recommendation online.
Amanda has though, attracted the attention of traditional publishers St Martins Press and Pan Macmillan - deals reportedly worth $2. Her first paper novel, 'Switched:Book One', part of a trilogy, is out in 2012. The film rights have already been taken by Hollywood. Amanda is said to be aiming for billion-dollar status, which, if things continue for her at this rate, it seems she may well achieve. Good luck with that and the best to all indie writers. As with any writer, it is a good idea to evaluate the market before you start writing. See what is selling and if your product brings something to the table for our readers. After all, the reader is king.
