Bloomington, Ind. (PRWEB) May 05, 2014
Author Solutions, LLC, a Penguin Random House company and the world leader in supported self-publishing services, announced recently that Hay House has acquired Balboa Press title, “Jump … and Your Life Will Appear” by Nancy Levin. Levin is the latest author to make the “leap” from the self-published ranks to the world of traditional publishing.
“We’re pleased that Nancy has reached her goal of becoming a Hay House author. Our partnerships with some of the most respected traditional publishing companies continue to open doors for authors who aspire to be traditionally published and it provides the publishers an effective way to discover new literary talent,” said Andrew Phillips, Author Solutions CEO.
“Jump,” the second title Levin self-published through Balboa Press—an alliance between Hay House and Author Solutions—was released in February 2014. The book immediately gained traction, selling thousands of e-book copies in just a few weeks and drawing attention from Hay House. Citing the book’s momentum and subject matter, Hay House quickly added the title and rereleased it on April 15.
“While it’s unusual for a self-published title to be picked by a traditional house less than two months after its release, Nancy’s book certainly illustrates the opportunities that exist for previously undiscovered authors. If an author produces a quality book that resonates with readers, promotes that book and it drives sales, publishers will notice,” Phillips added.
