AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT: Amanda Hocking
You've got to read this article I just discovered. Here.
Bascially it talks about Amanda Hocking and how she tried going traditional publishing routes and when that failed she decided to e-publish. And currently she sold over 450,000 copies of her books last month alone. Later in the article it said she makes 70% of the money off them and sells them anywhere from 99cents to $2.99. I should know. I've bought 7 of them. So, I did a little math. Let's pretend that each book sold for $1 and 70% of 450,000 is $315,000. Holy crow!
That was just my bad math---then I found another website. Here. It claims she's made 1.5 million.
So, maybe the success stories are few and far between. Whatever. This is inspiration enough for me today. On with my writing...
