Featured in this week’s Luton Today newspaper, Adam Croft, 29, is making £500,000 through his self-published crime novels, with his latest book Her Last Tomorrow selling up to 1,000 copies per day.
Market research has revealed that the majority of Croft’s readers are middle-aged women, which he admits surprised him.
The author aims to write 2,000 words a day. He keeps 80 percent of the profits because he self-publishes his books, but admits that it requires marketing skills. He does a lot of promotional work through Facebook, which can generate up to 300 comments a day.
