Amanda Hocking

Last night I was so lucky to be invited to attend a very informal event with Amanda Hocking!! If you haven't heard of her, she is the twenty seven year old American writer who has sold over a million copies of her ebooks. Amanda went down the normal route of trying to find an agent/publisher, and when that didn't happen she decided to self-publish her work as ebooks. She has now signed a seven book deal worth a seven figure sum! She was lovely to talk to, and really honest and down to earth. The lovely Chloe and Bella from Mcmillan supplied us with pizza and fizz, and of course free books! A fabulous evening in all. You can find out more about Amanda on
