Hocking signs traditional deal

It's in the New York Times. Amanda Hocking has signed a deal with St. Martin's to publish her next series. Apparently the bidding for it passed the $2 million mark.

Good for her. I can't imagine there are too many people on the indie path who would turn down money like that.

And I found this quote from the Times article interesting:

“I want to be a writer,” she said. “I do not want to spend 40 hours a week handling e-mails, formatting covers, finding editors, etc. Right now, being me is a full time corporation.”

They attribute it to her blog. Read the whole post here.
