If you’ve been living under a rock, Hugh Howey is a self-published author turned New York Times bestselling, publishing mega-star. More on his about page.
From Wired “Hugh Howey is a self-described “bum,” who for the past twenty years has bounced from job to job — computer repair, roofing, yacht captain, bookstore clerk. In his spare time he wrote science fiction, and after growing impatient with the long waits and uncertain rewards of traditional publishing, he began self-publishing his work on Amazon.com. Just a few years later his post-apocalyptic novel Wool, typed out in a storage room during his lunch breaks at the bookstore, was earning him over $100,000 a month on Amazon, had secured him a six-figure book deal from Simon & Schuster, and had been optioned for film by Ridley Scott, director of Blade Runner and Alien.”
