Indie Author Turned Traditional

Whenever an independent author is so successful that they’re picked up by an traditional publisher it makes many of us stand up and cheer. It is proof that there are amazing independent books out there and that the industry is starting to recognize that and pull from it. Another independent author’s unprecedented success has gained the attention of a fantastic traditional publisher. Elfhunter, by C.S. Marks, has been picked up by Sea Lion Books which publishes such renowned authors as Anne Rice, Richelle Mead, and Becca Fitzpatrick, among others.

Here is a bit about Elfhunter by C.S. Marks:

A monster roams the last refuge of the elves—a creature who has sworn to destroy them one by one until none remain. One headstrong heroine is determined to stand between her people and extinction—wood elf Gaelen Taldin. When powerful dark magic creates a terrible and irrevocable spiritual link between them, the result is a journey of terrifying transformation. Elfhunter tells a story of savage combat between predator and prey—a deadly dance wherein the hunter becomes the hunted. Who will prevail?

I don’t know about you, but I’m totally hooked after reading that! I’ll be checking out Elfhunter for sure! You can read more about C.S. Marks here.
