Book Preview of Switched by Amanda Hocking
A lot of you would not have heard of the novel Switched by Amanda Hocking and so was the case with me a few months ago as well. And then I heard that here was a young author who was self-published and had already sold a million copies of her ebook online. Now this is something really unheard of when it comes to self-published authors so I went ahead to do some more research on this novel, Switched by Amanda Hocking.
And boy oh boy, was I in for a pleasant surprise. Switched by Amanda Hocking, is a supernatural tale that I would like to describe as Harry Potter meets Twilight meets Lord of the Rings. Switched by Amanda Hocking is the first book of the young adult paranormal literature series, The Trylle Trilogy and like I said earlier, it was first published as an ebook in 2010 and has recently been published in paperback by St. Martin’s Press who’ve bought the rights of the book following its success.
An Excerpt from the book, Switched by Amanda Hocking
I’ve added an excerpt from the book, Switched by Amanda Hocking, below:
“When Wendy Everly was six years old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. Eleven years later, Wendy discovers her mother might have been right. She’s not the person she’s always believed herself to be, and her whole life begins to unravel—all because of Finn Holmes.
Finn is a mysterious guy who always seems to be watching her. Every encounter leaves her deeply shaken…though it has more to do with her fierce attraction to him than she’d ever admit. But it isn’t long before he reveals the truth: Wendy is a changeling who was switched at birth—and he’s come to take her home.
Now Wendy’s about to journey to a magical world she never knew existed, one that’s both beautiful and frightening. And where she must leave her old life behind to discover who she’s meant to become…”
Now doesn’t that sound intriguing! No wonder then that, Switched by Amanda Hocking is already a New York Times Bestseller.
