Donovan DeChance is a collector of ancient manuscripts and books, a practicing mage, and a private investigator. This Omnibus Collection includes books I, II, III, and IV of the series. Included are Heart of a Dragon, Vintage Soul, My Soul to Keep (The Origin story of Donovan DeChance) and Kali’s Tale – book IV of the series. Also included are the bonus novellas “The Not Quite Right Reverend Cletus J. Diggs & The Currently Accepted Habits of Nature,” and “The Preacher’s Marsh,” both of which provide background on settings and characters that appear in Kali’s Tale. If you enjoy this book, you should read Nevermore, A Novel of Love, Loss & Edgar Allan Poe, which follows on Kali’s Tale, has a cameo from Donovan DeChance, and leads into Book V – A Midnight Dreary, currently in progress.

Heart of a Dragon: When a local houngan begins meddling with powers she may not be able to control, a turf war breaks out between the Dragons motorcycle club and the Los Escorpiones street gang—a war that threatens to open portals between worlds and destroy the city in the process. With his lover, Amethyst, his familiar, Cleo – an Egyptian Mau the size of a small bobcat –the dubious aid of a Mexican sorcerer named Martinez and the budding gifts of a young artist named Salvatore, DeChance begins a race against time, magic, and almost certain death.

Vintage Soul: When, despite the finest in natural and supernatural security, a sexy and well-loved, three hundred year old lady vampire is kidnapped right out from under her lover’s nose, Donovan is called in to investigate. There will be no ransom for the kidnap victim, and if Donovan doesn’t prevent an ancient, forbidden ritual from reaching its culmination, far more than a single vampire’s undead existence will be at stake.

My Soul to Keep: Donovan DeChance is a very private man, and he is in love. When he invites his partner and lover, Amethyst, for a quiet dinner, she has no idea of his true intention. Donovan has planned a sharing – a vision that will give her the keys to his early life – the origins of his power – and a lot more than she bargained for. Join young Donovan as he fights to keep his soul, save a town, and learn the roots of his teacher and guardian – and meet his familiar, Cleo.

Kali’s Tale: When Donovan is asked to follow in secret as a hot-headed group of young vampires set out on a ‘blood quest’ to kill the ancient who created the young vampire Kali against her will, he learns that – as usual – there is a lot more to the story than meets the eye. Through the juke joints of Beale Street in Memphis, to the depths of The Great Dismal Swamp, Donovan and his lover and partner, Amethyst, find themselves drawn along on one of the strangest quests in their long, enigmatic lives as they delve into the world of the undead, the magic of The Blues, and the very heart of alchemy both to protect their young, vampiric charges – and to prevent an ancient evil from destroying the balance of power in the universe.

This novel directly crosses over to the original series O.C.L.T. – where Donovan is a sometimes consultant. It features appearances by Geoffrey Bullfinch and Rebecca York, O.C.L.T. agents, as well as Old Mill, North Carolina’s own Cletus J. Diggs.

New Box Sets for the Holidays.  Save and Discover New Authors!

New Box Sets for the Holidays. Save and Discover New Authors!

Last holiday we introduced a series of really big boxed sets, many with 20 novels apiece, to draw attention and interest to some of our less-read books.  Those box sets were a huge success.  We will keep them available for a limited time – ending on December 31st.  That would include A Haunting of Horrors, A Murder of Mysteries, A Haunting of Horrors II, as well as the humorous fantasy, thriller and western sets.

This year, we will be going a slightly different route.  Most of the promotions that work well for eBooks will promote a set of books by a single author, but not a box set by multiple, so we have begun creating single author sets of 3-4 books apiece, many to introduce an ongoing series, others to bring a new audience to a particular author…while bringing big savings to you guys – the readers supporting us.  Here is the first wave of box sets:

The DeChance Chronicles Omnibus – Books 1-4 by David Niall Wilson –   Amazon / B&N / Crossroad
Ebenezum – The Ebenezum Trilogy – by Craig Shaw Gardner –  Amazon / B&N / Crossroad
The Manhattan Ghost Story Trilogy – by T. M. Wright – Amazon / B&N / Crossroad
The Ryerson Biergarten Series – by T. M. Wright  – Amazon / B&N / Crossroad
The Strange Seed Series – by T. M. WRight – Amazon / B&N / Crossroad
The Orangefield Cycle – by Al Sarrantonio  Amazon / B&N / Crossroad
The Order of the Air Omnibus – by Melissa Scott & Jo Graham – Amazon / B&N / Crossroad
The O.C.L.T. Omnibus – Books 1-4 – Amazon / B&N / Crossroad
The Joe Sonntag Mysteries – By Axel Brand – Amazon / B&N / Crossroad
The Evil Trilogy – by Hugh B. Cave – Amazon / B&N / Crossroad
Off the Wall Mysteries – Amazon / B&N / Crossroad
The Whit Pynchon Mysteries Volume 1 (Books 1-3) by Dave Pedneau – Amazon / B&N / Crossroad
The Land of Ten Thousand Willows Trilogy – Kathryn Ptaceck – Amazon / B&N / Crossroad
The William Bayer Collection – Book 1 of each of three Mystery Series – Amazon / B&N / Crossroad

Available at Amazon.com / Barnes & Noble / the Crossroad Press Store – and most eBook outlets.

You have probably noticed that the blog looks different.  If you click on through to the CROSSROAD PRESS ONLINE STORE you’ll see that has changed, as well.  We are nearing the end of a major makeover – upgrading to a more professional, and integrated store and blog in the hope of serving our readers (and our authors) better.

I’ll make this short and then, hopefully, work back into a more regular routine of posting.

Working with authors Trish & Rob MacGregor (and through tireless formatting hours by myself, David Dodd & Aaron Rosenberg) we have reincarnated the Sydney Omarr Astrology series – one book of annual predictions for each sign.  Trish & Rob were the authors of this series for NAL, but the publisher has dropped it … now it lives again.  You can get all 12 in eBook and PRINT from the Crossroad Press Store or your favorite retailer.

BARGAINS: We have been busy with Book Bub promotions.  Live now is a .99 promotion on the children’s book THE SKELETON INSIDE ME … there is also audio, read by the talented Gigi Shane.  Coming up on the 10th James Dalessandro’s CITIZEN JANE will be featured at Bookbub in a True Crime promotion – and will also be available for .99.  His novel 1906 – which is amazing, and takes place during the 1906 San Francisco earthquake – will also be .99 during that period as part of a different promotion… this book is now re-released in audio – narrated by Gigi Shane – and is a must read for historical mystery buffs…

We have a new omnibus, just published, featuring the first three books of Paul Dale Anderson’s INSTRUMENTS OF DEATH series… the omnibus is only $2.99 and leads on into a much longer series.  This is also part of the Kindle Unlimited Program.  If you use that program, we have a number of books available through there, including historical romance, horror, mysteries and Ingo Swann’s “Penetration” which sounds dirty – but is about Alien contact and alternate dimensions…fascinating stuff.

Also in a a new omnibus format are the first three novels of Al Sarrantonio’s ORANGEFIELD Cycle – with Halloween creeping up on you, you don’t want to miss those…

Let us know what you think of the blog’s new look, and the store… we have gone GREEN (as in SSL) though we keep and process NO CREDIT CARD INFO in our store itself, using Paypal to handle that.  That said, account data is secure, and we are available anytime help is needed.

On to October!

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.
