Ronald Kelly – First Author completely live in the New Store

Ronald Kelly – First Author completely live in the New Store

Rebuilding our entire store is an astronomically large project.  We have just about 150 products added back in, and now we are starting to add them in chunks. We have just added all of the products for author Ronald Kelly – who has a number of horror novels, collections, and a young adult novel with us. I’m writing this post, and will continue to write them as time permits, to show the look and feel of what we are doing. Any product that has a print edition you will be able to purchase here at our store.  Any book with eBook editions, with the exception of the Stargate novels which you can buy directly from our store, will have links to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple iTunes, Kobo and Smashwords (or as many of those as the book is available at) as well as an Audible.com link for audioooks.  Categories now include Kindle Unlimited so that if a customer is signed up for Amazon’s  Kindle Unlimited program, they can find which books of ours are enrolled in that program.  Right now there are over 400 of our 1600 or so titles in Kindle Unlimited… including our popular O.C.L.T. series and Paul Dale Anderson’s Instruments of Death forensic crime series.

All of the Stargate novels are live, all of Ronald Kelly, and a good sampling of other titles can now be purchased through our site, using Paypal or Stripe for Credit Card purchases.  Check it out!  Let us know what you think.

And Check out Ronald Kelly’s Author Category to see what is in store…multiply that times about 180 and we’re there!

New Website – New Store – Growing up…

New Website – New Store – Growing up…

We have been in need of this facelift for a very long time… Crossroad Press has grown well beyond the tiny dream I once had for it, and become a force in digital publishing, digital audio, as well as producing a growing print catalog. I am going to have to ask readers, customers, and authors to be patient with me. There are around 1600 titles in our catalog… nearly 180 authors. Each product and author has an entry in the store.  I started by making all of the Stargate eBooks available, because, frankly those are the only eBooks anyone regularly buys here at our site, and we have an obligation to the wonderful folks at Fandemonium for trusting us with digital distribution for their books.

Next up will be the books that are either original to Crossroad Press – or that we have done print editions of. I want a good place for people to find and buy our books. I will be adding features like the chance to have any of them autographed by the author … this will require a fee just to ship the book to the author and on to customers, but should add a personal touch. There will be sales and coupons galore.  Each product in the store will have links to audible.com for audiobooks, and to all of the retailers that we use for eBook distribution, as well as direct buy links for print editions.  Each author will have their own drop page, and you can see the bare-bones start of that by clicking this image:

 

 

 

If you are WordPress savvy and (in particular) have experience with Woo Commerce and would like to help with the build, let me know at publisher@crossroadpress.com.

Onward into the future!

NEW IN EBOOKS:

A Friend of Mr. Niijinsky – Historical mystery by CARO SOLES  – When the great Nijinsky arrives in New York to a tumultuous welcome in April, 1916, young Morgan Vanheusen braves his father’s wrath by helping the dancer steal away from his family’s estate during a charity event. An unlikely alliance blossoms and Morgan becomes known as ‘a friend of Mr. Nijinsky’. Doors open and he grabs the opportunity to get back to racing the motorcars he loves. But as the young American is drawn in to Nijinsky’s paranoid world, he is pulled into a murder investigation and discovers a side of his city he never knew existed. Then his sister is kidnapped by a mad Russian and only his new ‘friend’ can save her. Can Morgan count on the eccentric dancer to rescue his sister?

Disciples of the Serpent – An O.C.L.T. Tie-in Novel by Sid Williams – In Dublin, Ireland, academics and historians are dying. An unidentified venom is to blame. Strange markings from deep in the Emerald Isle’s past suggest adherents to lost and forbidden knowledge may have reorganized.

Detective Aileen O’Donnell, teamed with Geoffrey Bullfinch and Wendell “Mack” Macklemore of O.C.L.T. are on a race through medieval ruins and holy sites. They must collect puzzle pieces, fragments from a forgotten pulp writer and bits of secret Druid history to stop the shadowy band of disciples before it awakens something long sleeping beneath one of Ireland’s most famous landmarks, something modern technology and firepower can’t defeat.

Phoenix Sub-Zero by Michael DiMercurio – The Hegira is the finest super-sub that Arab oil money can buy. But the U.S. Navy is only now learning just how good this undersea sword of Islam is. Already one American sub has been destroyed, and another crippled, as the Hegira breaks out of the Mediterranean and heads toward America to deliver its lethal payload.

Now it’s up to Captain Michael Pacino and the USS Seawolf to find the enemy sub and destroy it—in the ultimate battle between the most advanced weapons technology on the planet…and the sheer force of human courage.

Titus Crow Series by Brian Lumley & Black Oak Series by Charles L. Grant in AUDIO!

Titus Crow Series by Brian Lumley & Black Oak Series by Charles L. Grant in AUDIO!

THE TITUS CROW SERIES – by BRIAN LUMLEY – Narrated by SIMON VANCE & COREY SNOW

In a departure from many Cthulhu Mythos stories, Lumley’s characters are not helpless victims of unimaginable forces which can drive humans mad by merely manifesting themselves. Instead, Titus Crow, his friend Henri-Laurent de Marigny, and other Lumley characters confront Cthulhu’s minions in a series of increasingly large-scale encounters, in which humans, although outmatched, try to fight back.

FIND THE ENTIRE SERIES IN AUDIO at AUDIBLE.COM / AMAZON.COM / iTUNES

THE BLACK OAK SERIES – by CHARLES L. GRANT – Narrated by ARTHUR FLAVELL

If you enjoy such surreal eyes as Harry Angel, Harry D’Amour and “Repairman Jack”, you might also be interested in checking out Charles L. Grant’s Black Oak series, which centers around Black Oak Security, “a crack team of private investigators led by brilliant, enigmatic ETHAN PROCTOR.” Black Oak handles many of the typical P.I. gigs: office fraud, business scams, background checks, missing persons, and a variety of white collar crime. But they also frequently trip the dark fantastic, thanks to Proctor’s abiding interest in, as one Amazon pundit puts it, “creatures and forces greater than natural.”

BRIAN LUMLEY TITUS CROW & HERO SERIES 1st Time in Audio

BRIAN LUMLEY TITUS CROW & HERO SERIES 1st Time in Audio

Compleat Crow_500 Hero of Dreams_500

CROSSROAD PRESS DIGITAL AUDIO is proud to bring you the very first audio editions of some classic works by one of Fantasy, Science Fiction and Horror’s finest authors.  We will be releasing – in order – the Titus Crow Novels and the Hero Series in unabridged audio over the coming months.  The Titus Crow books are to be narrated by Mr. Simon Vance – and the Hero series by Jonathan Trueman.

CROSSROAD PRESS is proud to present more than 450 Audio titles for your listening pleasure.  If you like our authors, and love audio – you can browse our list of available books at AUDIBLE.COM

HERO OF DREAMS:

Something vital is missing from David Hero’s comfortable, ordinary existence. One day is much like the next, simple, predictable…boring.

But the nights! Each night David Hero finds himself transported to a marvelous world where brave men and women battle terrible creatures possessed of cruel, dark powers.

Despite his fears, the Dreamworlds tempt David, drawing him farther and farther from the waking world. Here he finds noble warriors; beautiful, loving women; and challenges almost greater than he can imagine.

THE COMPLEAT CROW: 

“He was tall and broad-shouldered, and it was plain to see that in his younger days, he had been a handsome man. Now…his hair had greyed a little, and his eyes, though still very bright and observant, bore the imprint of many a year spent exploring – and often, I guessed, discovering – along rarely trodden paths of mysterious, obscure learning.”

Mysterious, obscure learning….

To many thousands of listeners world-wide, Titus Crow is the psychic sleuth – the cosmic voyager and investigator – of Brian Lumley’s Cthulhu Mythos novels, from The Burrowers Beneath to Elysia.

But before The Burrowers and Crow’s transition, his exploits were chronicled in a series of short stories and novellas uncollected in the USA, except in limited editions. Now these stories can be told again. From Inception, which tells of Crow’s origins, to The Black Recalled, a tale of vengeance from beyond the grave, here in one volume, from the best-selling author of the epic Necroscope series, is The Compleat Crow.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Brian Lumley (born 2 December 1937) is an English horror-fiction writer.

Born in County Durham, he joined the British Army‘s Royal Military Police and wrote stories in his spare time before retiring with the rank of Warrant Officer Class 1 in 1980 and becoming a professional writer.

In the 1970s he added to H. P. Lovecraft‘s Cthulhu Mythos cycle of stories, including several tales and a novel featuring the character Titus Crow. Several of his early books were published by Arkham House. Other storiespastiched Lovecraft’s Dream Cycle but featured Lumley’s original characters David Hero and Eldin the Wanderer. Lumley once explained the difference between his Cthulhu Mythos characters and Lovecraft’s: “My guys fight back. Also, they like to have a laugh along the way.”

Later works included the Necroscope series of novels, which produced spin-off series such as the Vampire World Trilogy, The Lost Years parts 1 and 2, and the E-Branch trilogy. The central protagonist of the earlier Necroscopenovels appears in the anthology Harry Keogh and Other Weird Heroes. The latest entry in the Necroscope saga isThe Mobius Murders.[1]

Lumley served as president of the Horror Writers Association from 1996 to 1997. On 28 March 2010 Lumley was awarded Lifetime Achievement Award of the Horror Writers Association. He also received a World Fantasy Awardfor Lifetime Achievement in 2010.
