Self-Publishing Idol Amanda Hocking Gets Deal


Amanda Hocking has made $2 million selling her paranormal teen Trylle Trilogy.  Now she has a deal with St. Martin’s for another $2 million for a new series called “Watersong.”  This series too is paranormal teen novels. 

Hocking explained on her blog:

“I want to be a writer,” she said. “I do not want to spend 40 hours a week handling e-mails, formatting covers, finding editors, etc. Right now, being me is a full-time corporation.”

Expect the first book in her new series in fall 2012.
