Last month while I was at the hospital with my son, I came across this wonderful article about this author who had walked out on faith and pursued her dreams publishing her books. She did not wait on a publishing house to pick her up but instead she decided to do it herself.
Amanda Hocking sold over 450,000 copies of her book and had gotten recongnition for her work. Below is a link to the a cool article about her on USA Today. I posted this link a while back on my Facebok Page.
Awesome job Amanda!:-)
