26-Year-Old Amanda Hocking Making Millions Selling Her Books Cheap In The Kindle Store

This 26-Year-Old Is Making Millions Cutting Out Traditional Publishers With Amazon Kindle:

Welcome to disruption. 26-year old Amanda Hocking is the best-selling 'indie' writer on the Kindle store, meaning she doesn't have a publishing deal, Novelr says.
And she shouldn't. She gets to keep 70% of her book sales -- and she sells around 100,000 copies per month. By comparison, it's usually thought that it takes a few tens of thousands of copies sold in the first week to be a New York Times bestselling writer.
Young adult urban fantasy and paranormal romance aren't exactly up my alley, but I love this story.
