Here’s another inspiring, rags-to-riches, “Rocky”-type story of a struggling writer beating the odds by turning to self-publishing, then becoming an overnight success as a best-selling author.
This one appears in the Toronto Globe & Mail, and it’s about my new friend Martin Crosbie. There’s a lot here that I didn’t know about Martin’s earlier life and personal struggles–and the sudden smash success of his wonderful genre-bending novel of romantic suspense, My Temporary Life. Moreover, the piece is written by another indie author, Beverly Akerman, which only adds satisfying color to the profile.
If you’re a writer or a reader, you’ll be touched by this story.
