Do you know who Amanda Hocking is?

If you don't know you will in the very near future. Amanda Hocking is living every author's dream come true. She is a 26 year old self published author that just landed a Four Book - 2 Million Dollar deal with St. Martin's Press. That is TWO MILLION DOLLARS.

You may not recognize Amanda Hocking's name, but if you have perused ebooks at or Amazon, you have seen her books. Yeah, that's it. The books with covers like that. Recognize them? Between Barnes & Noble and Amazon her ebooks have sold nearly a million copies. From the reader reviews at Barnes & Noble it sounds like we all have been missing out. At a price of 99 cents it is a price that we all can afford. I admit it, I just bought the entire trilogy. For all we know this young woman could be the next J.K Rowling or Suzanne Collins.

Here she is in an interview with her local NBC affiliate - she really could be just you or I!

Have you read her books? What did you think? Stay tuned and I will tell you what I thought!


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
