Amanda Hocking is the best selling indie writer on Amazon.com. She sells approximately 100,000 copies of her books per month. By publishing for the Kindle she has no printing costs, and doesn’t and to store a garage full of books or contend with delivery.
She also gets about 70% of the sales. That’s an impressive payday to my mind.
After I first saw this article I visited the Amazon site. It listed her book “Switched (Trylle Trilogy, Book 1) at number 5 on their paid list and at 97 days in the top 100. Also note that this said book 1 of a trilogy. That means there will be more books coming. Way to go, Amanda.
