The Bookseller - 24.05.11 | Graeme Neill
She self-published her first novel to Amazon's Kindle in April 2010 and has since sold more than one million books.
The deal is for the Trylle Trilogy and a new four-book series called Watersong. The Trylle trilogy will be published in spring 2012 and the first book in the Watersong series will be released in autumn 2012 in paperback and e-book format.
It is described as a romantic coming-of-age tale about two sisters and their struggle to do right by each other and the men they love.
Crisp said: "We're thrilled to have Amanda Hocking on the Tor UK list. She’s been incredibly successful at self-publishing her Trylle series already and we’re thrilled to be able to work with her in publishing these, and her new Watersong series, and helping her to reach a much bigger readership.
"She’s a wonderfully imaginative, original and accomplished writer and I’m sure she’ll be a worldwide sensation."
