Author Spotlight: Amanda Hocking’s Trylle Series

St. Martin’s Griffin just released a brilliant new book trailer for the release of Amanda Hocking’s Trylle Series!  The first book in the series, Switched, will be released on January 3, 2012.  St. Martin’s also provided a link to some lovely photo stills from the video.

About the Trylle Series and Switched:

Pre-Order from

From Amanda Hocking, million-copy bestselling author and internet sensation comes the Trylle series…it all begins with Switched, available everywhere 1.3.12.  As a special gift to readers, Switched contains a new, never-before-published bonus story, “The Vittra Attacks,” set in the magical world of the Trylle.

The Trylle series continues with Torn, on-sale 2.28.12, and concludes on 4.24.12 with Ascend.

SWITCHED… at birth:

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…

About Amanda:

I live in Minnesota with my dog, two cats, two fish, a turtle, and my roommate/assistant/platonic lifemate, Eric. I actually live in Austin, a.k.a. SPAMTown, USA. They invented SPAM here, and the town is quite proud of it.

I do many things, most of them lame and boring, but the thing I get paid to do is write young adult books.

All three books in my Trylle Trilogy -SwitchedTorn, and Ascend - were originally self-published, but will be re-released with St. Martin’s and Pan Macmillan internationally with new bonus content starting on January 3, 2012. The trilogy has also made the USA Today Bestseller list and was recently optioned for a film by Media Rights Capitalwith District 9 screenwriter Terri Tatchelladapting the books for screen.

St. Martin’s and Pan Macmillan recently acquired my new young adult four-book seriesWatersong, with the first book Wake coming out in August 2012. My zombie series, The Hollows, is being adapted into a graphic novel by Dynamite.

I also enjoy Red Bull, Jim Henson, Batman, Jane Austen, Star Wars legos, and I absolutely hate long walks on the beach out of my intense fear/hatred of wet sand.

My favorite authors are Kurt Vonnegut, Chuck Palahniuk, Bret Easton Ellis, Alan Moore, and J. D. Salinger, but I don’t write anything like them.

I have an obsession with River Phoenix, and I’ve seen Silence of the Lambs more than any other movie, even The Dark Knight. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen every American movie that came out between 1980 and 1990, and I’ve loved them all. My favorite movies areThe Dark KnightLabyrinthThe CrowUpMy Own Private IdahoPretty in Pink, Empire Strikes BackBack to the Future II, and American Psycho.
