eBookNewser has more: “Like John Locke, Hocking sold most of the million Kindle books as an independent author using Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). The self-published author, who is best known for the Trylle Trilogy, has had her writing picked up by St. Martin’s Press and her writing has been optioned for film.”
