She's just sold her previously self-epublished Trylle trilogy to a traditional publisher. St. Martin's Press will publish the best-selling trilogy as both ebooks and treebooks.
On her blog, Hocking says the story will not change but that the books will be more polished. In the past, Hocking's books have sold for 99 cents. The prices are likely to rise but Hocking expects them to remain lower than most ebooks. She'll contines to self-publish the trilogy for the next few months at their current prices.
Hocking, 26, first made headlines for selling more than a million copies as a self-epublished author. Three of her self-epublished young adult paranormals appeared on the USA Today top 50 bestseller list.
In March, she signed a four-book deal with St. Martin’s Press for a new series called “Watersong.” Bidding is said to have reached over $2 million for world English rights.
