26-Year-Old Is Making Millions selling on Kindle
Welcome to disruption. 26-year old Amanda Hocking is the best-selling "indie" writer on the Kindle store, meaning she doesn't have a publishing deal, Novelr says.
And she shouldn't. She gets to keep 70% of her book sales -- and she sells around 100,000 copies per month. By comparison, it's usually thought that it takes a few tens of thousands of copies sold in the first week to be a New York Times bestselling writer.
Note: I looked on Worldcat and her books are in some libraries. Paper versions of her books are available. Assuming the numbers of sales are true anyone care to comment about whether more libraries should have her books?
