We are in the midst of major changes here. Among those was the installation of an SSL certificate. Our store is on a sub-domain of crossroadpress.com – and there was a DNS entry that had to be removed for this to operate properly. While we are waiting for that to propagate across the Interwebz… please use this link to reach the store, and sorry for any inconvenience.

The links above are to ALL Crossroad Press ebooks, ranked from lowest price to highest price. We have a good number of .99 books that are ALWAYS bargain priced… for iTUnes and Google Play you’ll have to put in the title, or the author to find the links on the appropriate dates (see below)
Until the 10th of April, you can get NDE – The Lazarus Intiative – by award-winning authors Steven Savile & David Sakmyster for only .99… From Steven Savile, International best-selling author of SILVER and the JACK STONE THRILLERS, and David Sakmystery, award-winning screenwriter and author of THE PHAROS OBJECTIVE and CRESCENT LAKE, a new, page-turning, supernatural thriller. After a Near Death Experience (an ‘NDE’) radically transforms the life of eccentric billionaire Nicholas Sheridan, he becomes obsessed with understanding the experience, recreating the conditions that opened the gate to the unknown. After recruiting others with similar experiences, they discover amazing connections, common visions and dramatic abilities among people who have come back from the dead. But what they haven’t bargained for is that the gate opens both ways. Something has escaped from death and is hunting them. Something hungry…
From the 10th through the 21st you can get Benjamin Kane Ethridge’s Bram Stoker Award-Winning novel BLACK & ORANGE for only .99 – Forget everything you know about Halloween. The stories are distortions. They were created to keep the Church of Midnight hidden from the world. Every October 31st a gateway opens to a hostile land of sacrificial magic and chaos. Since the beginning of civilization the Church of Midnight has attempted to open the gateway and unite with its other half, the Church of Morning. Each year they’ve come closer, waiting for the ideal sacrifice to open the gateway permanently. This year that sacrifice has come. And only two can protect it. Martin and Teresa are the nomads, battle-hardened people who lack identity and are forever road-bound on an endless mission to guard the sacrifice. Their only direction is from notes left from a mysterious person called the Messenger. Endowed with a strange telekinetic power, the nomads will use everything at their disposal to make it through the night alive. But matters have become even more complicated this year. Teresa has quickly lost ground battling cancer, while Martin has spiraled into a panic over being left alone. His mind may no longer be on the fight when it matters most… because ever on their heels is the insidious physical representation of a united church: Chaplain Cloth.
From the 21st through the 30th you can get Joe R. Lansdale’s BUMPER CROP for only .99 – This collection of 26 stories contains some of Joe R Lansdale’s favourite and most violent dark horror tales. ‘God of the Razor’ introduces the dark god behind serial killers. A martial arts fight to the death between a reluctant champion and a sadistic alpha male, is featured in ‘Master of Misery’. Human sacrifice, to ensure prosperity or as a coming-of-age ritual, are themes of ‘On a Dark October’ and ‘Duck Hunt’. In ‘The Fat Man’, young boys learn the hard way that some mysteries should not be investigated. Many of the tales are truly weird, such as ‘Chompers’, the story of the false teeth with an appetite. All stories are individually introduced by Lansdale, who explains the humorous, weird, and sometimes sad genesis for each.
