By March 2011, she had sold over a million copies of her nine books and earned two million dollars from sales, previously unheard of for self-published authors. In early 2011, Hocking averaged 9,000 book sales each day.


In March 2011, Hocking signed her first conventional publishing contract for four books, at a price of two million dollars, with St. Martin's Press.

All three books in her previously self-published Trylle Trilogy were also sold to St. Martin's Press, and have been re-released from January–April 2012. In 2015 Hocking announced she had signed a new three-book deal with St. Martin's and revealed that the books would be a standalone and a duology, respectively. The standalone called Freeks set around a travelling circus in the 1980s was published in January 2017, while the duology to be based on Norse Mythology about Valkyries is set for a 2017 release.

In February 2011, the Trylle Trilogy was optioned for a film, with Terri Tatchell writing the screenplay. As of 2015 the rights have reverted to Hocking, with no prospects for future development.
