Best-Selling Self-Pubbed Author Signs Six-Figure, Three-Book Deal

Spring is in the air, and indie authors are being snapped up by trad publishers faster than the crocuses can bloom.

Seems like it was just five days ago (and it was!) that IR reported that New Adult author Courtney Cole’s If You Stay was snapped up by Forever, an imprint of Hachette,  in a major three book deal.

Now word comes that IndieReader is losing another author from our weekly best seller list as Wait for You’s Jennifer L. Armentrout (aka J. Lynn) just signed a three-book, six-figure deal with HarperCollins imprint Avon for Wait for You and two other upcoming books in the series.

Prior to Wait for You, Armentrout published 13 other books with indie publishers Spencer Hill Press and Entangled Publishing. She currently has upcoming books with Harlequin (end of 2013) and Hyperion (2014).
