Self-Publishing Success Stories: Martin Crosbie

Excerpt from the Surrey Leader:

After several revisions, Crosbie submitted his fictional story, “a romance-suspense-coming-of-age book,” to several publishers and agents. More than 100 of them. 
He was turned down.  Every time.

. . . .

As of midday March 7, total sales of the e-book version of My Temporary Life (available in e-book, to “borrow” online or in print) were at 66,716 and 2,747 readers had borrowed it by paying through online options.

Excerpt from Amazon press release:

One example is Martin Crosbie, the independent author of “My Temporary Life.” After enrolling the book in the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library in February, he earned over $45,000 in one month from paid sales and loans combined – a huge increase from the $100 he earned the prior two months when his book was not enrolled in the program.
