The awesome contest involving signed copies of some pretty amazing YA books (and the possible prize of an iPod touch) began today. Beth Revis’s story begins the series of mysteries, and starting tomorrow she will supply additional clues to help you find the solution.
Amanda Hocking is making publishing waves every time she turns around. First, she took the self-publishing world by storm with her incredible multi-millions in sales in a little over a year. Then, she rocked both the self-pubs and traditionals when she announced a $2M four book deal with St. Martins.
Speculation is running rampant on the blogosphere and twitterverse about the deal and what it means for Ms. Hocking. Taking a slightly different perspective, Alan Rinzler posted words of advice for her (from some well-known authors and agents) on his blog. These snippets are worth the read as they add another flavour to what promise to be several interesting years in publishing.
