I am not quite sure why I resisted reading an Amanda Hocking book until now. I actually picked up a hard copy of her biggest seller SWITCHED, at the airport in London last week. Ironic that she is known for selling ebooks and I didn't buy one? Uh, oui.
Anyway, I am not sure how to feel about the whole thing. On the one hand I am totally amazed and impressed at her success. She wrote 17 novels, got rejected over and over again, and found a way to succeed on her own terms. On the other hand, I can't help but read with a critical eye and feel somewhat underwhelmed.
Yet, the fact remains that she is a millionaire and she did something very, very right. I have done a little research on Miss Hocking, and I can't help like who she is. She seems very genuine and sweet. So despite any criticisms I may have about the actual writing in her books, I support her. I am a fan of her, even if I am not a huge fan of the books.
Have you read her books? How do you feel about them/her?
