An editor for Amazon's Montlake Press, which specialises in romance, spotted Me, Cinderella? among the thousands of self-published books on the site, singling it out for its "very clean" writing. Rose was offered $5k, with 35% royalties, a post by the author on Reddit confirmed . But that turned out to be "less than I had made in my first month of sales", Rose wrote on her blog.
Wonderful story of an author who's got her head on straight.
