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.

Cozy Mystery Storybundle Curated by Patricia Lee Macomber

Cozy Mystery Storybundle Curated by Patricia Lee Macomber

All Covers LargeCrossroad Press’ own PATRICIA LEE MACOMBER will be curating a storybundle of COZY MYSTERY titles for Storybundle.com starting today.  These storybundles are a great way to discover new books and authors at a very reasonable price, while also supporting some worthwhile charities.  What follows is the actual blog post that will appear at Storybundle.com – I couldn’t say it better – starting with a note from Patricia Lee Macomber:

I can think of no better cure for the winter blues than curling up with a good book. In that vein, here are fourteen great books by nine great authors. This Cozy Mystery Bundle offers a variety of books to appeal to a broad range of readers, each of them hand-picked by me. And as always, you decide the price you pay. And please keep in mind that a portion of the proceeds goes to charity.

Here there are happy characters and dark, humor and suspense. You can get a good dose of ah-ha moments and a few prickles of fear. The bundle includes my own book, Murder, Sometimes, the first book in the Jason Callahan supernatural mystery series. It also includes books by perennial favorites, Bill Crider and Ed Gorman, as well as some new and rising stars. There are two boxed sets included in this bundle, as well, bringing the total number of books to fourteen.

This bundle only runs for three weeks, so you’d better get ’em while they’re hot. There is no better way to give the gift of reading to your friends, too. The first five books are available for the nominal price of $5 (or more if you’re in a charitable mood) and for $14 (or more if you’re in a charitable mood) you will receive the four bonus books. – Patricia Lee Macomber

The initial titles in the bundle (minimum $5 to purchase) are:

  • A Minor Case of Murder by Jeff Markowitz
  • Deadly Blessings by Julie Hyzy
  • The Kewpie Killer by Falafel Jones
  • Lexy Baker Cozy Mysteries Boxed Set 1-4 by Leighann Dobbs
  • Murder, Sometimes by Patricia Lee Macomber

If you pay more than the bonus price of just $14, you’ll get another four books:

  • One Dead Dean by Bill Crider
  • The McKinleys Mystery Series Boxed Set 1-3 by Carolyn Arnold
  • New Improved Murder by Ed Gorman
  • Death is a Cabaret by Deborah Morgan

The bundle is available for a very limited time only, via http://www.storybundle.com. It allows easy reading on computers, smartphones, and tablets as well as Kindle and other ereaders via file transfer, email, and other methods. You get multiple DRM-free formats (.epub and .mobi) for all books!

It’s also super easy to give the gift of reading with StoryBundle, thanks to our gift cards – which allow you to send someone a code that they can redeem for any future StoryBundle bundle – and timed delivery, which allows you to control exactly when your recipient will get the gift of StoryBundle.

Why StoryBundle? Here are just a few benefits StoryBundle provides.

  • Get quality reads: We’ve chosen works from excellent authors to bundle together in one convenient package.
  • Pay what you want (minimum $5): You decide how much these fantastic books are worth to you. If you can only spare a little, that’s fine! You’ll still get access to a batch of exceptional titles.
