Amanda Hocking Net Worth $10 Million Dollars
Amanda Hocking Net Worth: Amanda Hocking is an American writer that has a net worth of $10 million dollars. Amanda Hocking was born July 12, 1984 in Austin, Minnesota. Known for her paranormal romance (young adult) fiction, she composed 17 novels in her spare time. In April 2010, she started self-publishing them as ebooks. By March 2011, she had sold over a million copies of her nine books and earned $2 million in sales, previously unheard of for self-published writers. In early 2011, Hocking reportedly averaged 9,000 book sales a day. Together with the arrival of the eBook revolution, in which writers rather than publishers are rewriting the rulebook, writer Amanda Hocking has taken the traditional publishing world by storm, making millions from a series of young adult paranormal novels she self-published. Hocking’s printed work now consists of My Blood Approves, a vampire romance collection; the Trylle Trilogy, which covers a teenaged girl’s journey of self-discovery within an urban fantasy setting; and Hollowland, a zombie novel. The New York Times qualified her novels as “part unique girl-like-Hocking characters, part breakneck pacing, part Hollywood-style action and part bodice-ripping romance — they’re literature as sweets, a mash-up of imagination and commerce”. In March 2011, Hocking signed her first normal publishing contract for four books at a cost of $2 million with St. Martin’s Press, for her new young-adult paranormal series called Watersong. Novel one, Wake, was released in August 2012.
