Amanda Hocking is one of those writers that started publishing on Amazon in the early days of self-publishing. She is selling more than 100,000 books a month on Amazon. That kind of success is almost…chilling. We all dream it don’t we? She has a great blog post from a while back that described her whole story – from beginning to where she was when she posted, which I have added the link below. Her sales were starting to get very strong – about 600 a month – and then she connected with book bloggers & reviewers and suddenly she was looking at several thousand and it all blew up from there.
I don’t know about you guys, but whenever I get a link to view these success stories, I take a deep breath and pray that it will happen to me. The stories encourage me and help me to remember that other writers are doing it and being successful. I hope that it encourages you as well!
