It’s fun being able to kill people for a living.
I’ve been writing crime fiction and psychological thrillers for a decade now, and have been self-publishing for around eight years.
Back then, it was a case of having to navigate your own way through the virgin fields of indie publishing. Now, of course, there is a multitude of courses, guides and gurus offering tips and advice. It can often get confusing.
But it needn’t be like that. I recently dipped my toes into the non-fiction waters for the first time with my book The Indie Author Mindset, which details how changing my mindset and the way I approached my writing career enabled me to take it stratospheric. I believe any writer can do the same thing.
I’m now fortunate enough to have sold more than 1.5 million books all around the world, and I’ve reached the position where I’m able to give something back.
Whether it be helping authors of all levels via email or Facebook, giving some useful hints and tips here and there or just entertaining people (I co-present the free Partners in Crime podcast, sponsored by Kobo, where we talk about crime fiction), I’m enjoying every minute of it.
Although I’m hell-bent on world domination, being asked to take over the Kobo Writing Life Facebook page is a good start. Let’s have fun!
With more than a million books sold to date, Adam Croft is one of the most successful independently published authors in the world, and one of the biggest selling authors of the past year.
His Knight & Culverhouse crime thriller series has sold more than 250,000 copies worldwide, with his Kempston Hardwick mystery books being adapted as audio plays starring some of the biggest names in British TV.
In 2016, the Knight & Culverhouse Box Set reached storewide number 1 in Canada, knocking J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child off the top spot only weeks after Her Last Tomorrow was also number 1 in Canada. The new edition of Her Last Tomorrow also reached storewide number 1 in Australia over Christmas 2016.
Adam has been featured on BBC television, BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 5 Live, the BBC World Service, The Guardian, The Huffington Post, The Bookseller and a number of other news and media outlets.
