Vancouver (I-Newswire) February 22, 2012 - Debut author Martin Crosbie has become a bestselling sensation on Amazon.com. His book, My Temporary Life has been downloaded over 63,000 times over the past two weeks. It hit the number one spot for downloaded eBooks the weekend of Feb 11-12 and is now listed on Amazon as number six on the top ten eBooks written by an independent author. My Temporary Life has also hit the bestseller chart at number seventh overall bestseller on indiereader.com. Crosbie’s debut novel has earned 34 five star reviews from readers across the globe.
At one time, Crosbie was struggling to get his book noticed by a publisher or agent. After 100 rejections he took matters into his own hands. He created a marketing plan and published the book on his own. He knew he had a bestseller if only he could get it into the public’s hands. His determination and grit has paid off as his book climbs the best seller charts.
One reader states, “My Temporary Life is a novel one thinks fondly of for a long time after reading. Martin Crosbie’s talent is evident from the very first paragraph.”
In the tradition of J.D. Salinger, but with a twist My Temporary Life is a work of literary fiction that crosses over into a mystery/thriller. It is the story of Malcolm, a Scottish adolescent who is jostled back and forth from a reserved father in Kilmarnock, Scotland and a promiscuous mother in Vancouver, CA. While trying to find his way in the world he meets Heather, a beautiful yet haunted young woman and together they set out to save her daughter’s life.
