Self-publishing success story (or how to make $2.5M in two years)

January 30, 2012

I’m not into publishing- I don’t know the first thing about the industry- but it is always fun to celebrate a DIY success story.

So here goes:

Let’s jump to October 2010. In those six months, Hocking has raised not only the $300 she needed, but an additional $20,000 selling 150,000 copies of her books. Over the past 20 months Hocking has sold 1.5m books and made $2.5m. All by her lonesome self. Not a single book agent or publishing house or sales force or marketing manager or bookshop anywhere in sight.
