Usually when I highlight an author, I have read several books by him/her. Not this time. I heard about Amanda Hocking's story a few weeks ago. And its a pretty awesome story. You can learn more about her from her blog here. She has self published several books through Amazon Kindle. She has been wildly successful. Its not only her success that led me to write this post about her though. Last night, I read her book Hollowland. I stayed up way too late to finish reading it, so that was a clear indication of its worth.
Amanda Hocking tells a great story. Her characters are interesting, and I care about what happens to them. I am excited to read more of her books. If you enjoy young adult fantasy, you will enjoy Amanda Hocking's books.
