Another author makes it big off self-publishing. Amanda Hocking proves passion is the key ingredient to turning dreams into dollar signs. If you love writing, working a 9 to 5 won’t even stop you.
Anyone who has danced around the Indie blogosphere might have stumbled upon the novel Wake by Amanda Hocking. Well guess what, Miss. Hocking’s writing career did not begin with a seven figure contract from St. Martin’s Press. She started her writing career coming home after working late until 10 p.m., drinking a red bull, and then working eight hours straight on her writing.
Seeing she could get the same quality novels as a publisher, she self-published them online. Nine books led to a big return on investment.
Miss. Hocking inspired me. Now it is your turn. Let Miss. Hocking inspire you.
