Well, I blogged about Eisler, so I had to blog about Hocking. She took a $2-million 4-book deal with St. Martin’s, the publisher Eisler turned down. How’s that for coincidence?
The net is in an uproar. Did she do the right thing, yada, yada? Here‘s her explanation. Her main reason seems to be diversification for career stability. Hey, makes sense to me, but the funniest part is that she makes it clear that taking the deal was the RISK. Two years ago, self-pubbing was the risk. Amazing how things change.
