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!

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!

Paul Dale Anderson’s “Instruments of Death Series” – An Introduction

Paul Dale Anderson’s “Instruments of Death Series” – An Introduction

IODOne of the things about traditional publishing that has always gotten my hackles up is the genre-specific marketing that rules it.  Through the 70s, 80s and 90s there was a very literal plague of novels that were doomed from the outset by being miscast to fit available slots.

In particular, a lot of novels were slapped between paperback covers with raised foil lettering and lots of blood in the imagery that were labeled “horror”.  These books came out like clockwork, sat on the shelves a short time, and disappeared to be replaced by another round of the same.  I actually had an agent during that period who told me I missed a chance.  I was out at sea, and could have been published in the big horror glut of the 80s, but there was a slot, and a time-frame and I missed it.  Didn’t matter if the book was good, just that it existed.  I’m sort of glad I missed out on that.

Anyway, a lot of good books got labeled incorrectly during that period, and among those books were a series of police procedurals that happened to include serial killers and some violence, by Paul Dale Anderson.

Paul is with Crossroad Press now, and we are re-structuring his series INTO a series and marketing them more appropriately.  Don’t get me wrong.  Horror readers will enjoy these but they are more accurately categorized in the bigger world of mysteries and thrillers, and they are definitely a series, though until now they have not been marketed as such.  We have a brand new book in the series due out soon… so I thought I’d have Paul write about  these – where the inspiration came from (shades of Kay Scarpetta).  Without further ado, I give you:

An Introduction to Paul Dale Anderson’s Instruments of Death series

I lived in Chicago and worked at the American Society of Clinical Pathologists’ Chicago headquarters, directly across West Harrison Street from the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office, when I wrote Claw Hammer. My ASCP job was to sell continuing education classes to pathologists, and I got to sit in on many of those classes because I was the person who registered them for various courses. I set up microscopes in classrooms at conference centers, ran the overheads and slide projectors, hawked new books published by the Society or the College of American Pathologists, and hosted elaborate cocktail parties for the Docs at national medical conferences. One of those ASCP classes featured the latest techniques of tool mark analysis available to forensic pathologists interested in identifying the instrument of death, and I was fascinated to learn about the variety of ways people quite often used common household implements to kill beloved family members and friends.

That class reminded me of several terrible tragedies that had happened to grade-school classmates of mine in my own hometown of Rockford, Illinois. I recalled awakening one dawn to the sound of sirens when I was only about eight or nine. I learned that a neighbor had allegedly gone crazy during the night and killed his entire family—all but one daughter who survived–with a claw hammer. The milkman, the same milkman who had just delivered milk to my house, discovered the bodies when he entered the neighbor’s house to put milk in the refrigerator. as he normally did twice a week. In those Father Knows Best and Leave It to Beaver days of the early 1950s, people were very trusting and nobody ever locked their back doors. All that changed, of course, after an entire family was killed in our close-knit suburban neighborhood. It never dawned on us that locking the doors would do no good if the killer lived inside the house and had keys.

Not long after that first tragedy, the mother of another female grade-school friend was electrocuted in her bathtub. Supposedly, a radio fell off a shelf and added 110 volts to an afternoon bubble bath and fried the lady like a lobster. Police arrested the lady’s husband and charged him with her murder. My young friend had to leave school to go live with her grandparents. I never saw her again.

One of my favorite uncles, Eric Ekebom, was a Rockford police detective sergeant and I remember asking to see his gun when I was too young to know any better. He told me he hadn’t had to use his gun even once in more than twenty years on the police force. He did carry a gun, he explained, but he said he really didn’t need one because “Good detectives use their brains and not guns to catch criminals.” I’ll always remember that. Eric was the detective who reorganized the Rockford Police Department’s record bureau in the 1930s. He became the police department’s forensic and identification expert, and he served as the President of the International Association for Identification, the largest forensic organization in the world, from 1956 to 1957.

When Pinnacle Books bought two of my novels and wanted them delivered right away, I wrote a rough draft of Claw Hammer and sent it off with the expectation I would have time to revise and polish the manuscript. I had one day between the time I received the page proofs and the deadline for getting the completed novel back to New York in time to make the publishing window. I over-nighted the proofs back. I have never missed a writing deadline in my life. In the old days when I was learning the newspaper business, we published what we had in order to make a deadline even if we didn’t yet have the full story. “Go with what ya got,” the editor called out as the deadline approached. Some stories were incomplete or inaccurate. We knew we always had the next day’s edition to round out the details or publish a correction. I’m glad Claw Hammer endured to see a next edition.

Claw Hammer was my first published psychological horror novel, and since its original publication in 1989 I have written nine additional suspense-thrillers/police-procedural novels set in imaginary Riverdale, Illinois. Riverdale is a combination of my native Rockford and Aurora and Oak Park, plus images from a dozen other northern Illinois cities where I’ve lived and written novels. Carl Erickson, the homicide detective from Claw Hammer, also appears in Pickaxe, Icepick, Sledgehammer, Box Cutter, and Pinking Shears. After Carl retires, Troy Nolan and Andy Sinnott take over Carl Erickson’s roles, both detectives appearing in Pickaxe, Icepick, and Meat Cleaver.

My comfort zone is sitting at my keyboard inside my own house writing novels and short stories or reading novels and short stories for review. When Gretta M. Anderson, my wife of 27 years, died three years ago, I abandoned the real world for multiple fantasy worlds where I could control the outcome of human interactions. Writing kept me relatively sane. Andy Sinnott is a lot like me. But you already guessed that, didn’t you?

I write not only for me and to maintain sanity, but I write for people just like me—and like you, dear reader–who love to read a good mystery. I try, first and foremost, to tell a good story because I love good stories. Some of my stories get really weird, and many of my characters bleed and feel pain and some die. I view the world as a dangerous place where bad things happen to good people. Not all of my stories have a happy ending. I hope you’re as glad as I am that Icepick does end happily for most of the characters. You’ll meet many of the same characters again in other novels. Unfortunately, not all of them survive.

I am neither a medical doctor nor a forensic scientist, nor am I a police officer or a civil engineer. I have, however, worked with medical doctors, forensic scientists, police officers, and civil engineers, and I have two earned master’s degrees and most of a doctorate. I have done extensive medical research for more than twenty years. I always try my best to be accurate in my descriptions of medical and police procedures. I also served time in the military, including tours in construction engineer units, and I am familiar with a variety of firearms. Nevertheless, my novels are works of fiction that spring from my imagination, and I do take liberties with verisimilitude in order to tell a good story. For me, story comes first. If you want fact-filled books, I can recommend a few textbooks you might find interesting. If you want good stories, read my novels.

** Editor’s Note**

We are PROUD to bring this entire series of books back in digital, and new additions in all formats, and even happier to bring some very cool mystery thrillers to a new readership who probably would never have picked up a Pinnacle Horror novel back in the day. Gotta love being “the publisher”.

PieGuyCoverwebAmerican Pies – Baking With Dave the Pie Guy – by David Niall Wilson (Featuring the 4th of July Friendly AMERICAN PIE recipe) – There was a time when pie was more important. Fat, fruit-stuffed confections lined the booths at state and county fairs, cooled in the windows of kitchens across the world, sprouted blackbirds in nursery rhymes and rose to iconic glory as a symbol of goodness and patriotism. That was then. Pies, as so many other things, have been in a slump for quite a while. This book – American Pies – is one man’s attempt to restore them to their former glory, at least for his family. amazonbutton kobobutton bandnbutton

love lost coverwebLove Lost – by Patricia Lee Macomber – Amanda Stevens hasn’t had an easy life. Her parents are both dead. The only man she ever loved died before their wedding. She works a mundane job, lives in her childhood home, and hasn’t gone to a party since shoulder pads were in style. But all that is about to change. A single act of selflessness drives her out in her father’s old boat, late at night and in the middle of a storm. She’s on her way to rescue someone but when she lands in the past, she finds a new life, a new love, a new Amanda. The only problem is that she can’t stay, he can’t go, and if the war has anything to say about it, the island they’re marooned on will be wiped off the map. bandnbutton kobobutton amazonbutton

JBCompanionCoverwebThe James Bond Companion – By Raymond Benson – New digital edition of the classic 1980s Reference! The James Bond Bedside Companion was originally published in America in 1984. A second edition came out in 1986, and then an updated version was issued in both the U.S. and U.K. in 1988. The book went out of print in the early 1990s. Since then, the various editions have sold for big bucks on eBay and other resale outlets. In 2001, a firm produced an e-book and print-on-demand version of the book. The problem with that one was that none of the original plates existed. A facsimile had to be created from a scan of a copy of the book. At the time, scanner software wasn’t what it is today, so there were numerous, and sometimes laughable, errors in the text. For example, a word like “burns” was misread by the scanner as “bums!” (“Bond suffered multiple bums…”) Now, not quite thirty years after its original publication, comes a new and improved e-book, audiobook, and print edition of what many 007 fans have called, the author is humbled to say, a “Bond Bible.” Since its first appearance, numerous authors have published books on the James Bond phenomenon, mostly dealing with the films. In 1984, however, there wasn’t much out there that also dealt with the life of Ian Fleming and his novels. My book filled that gap for a time. bandnbutton  kobobutton

AliensCoverwebAliens in the Backyard – by Trish & Rob MacGregor – UFO Encounters, Abductions, & Synchronicity – In the early morning hours of March 28, 2011, Charles and Helene Fontaine experienced something that shattered their beliefs about the nature of reality. One evening in 1981, Connie J Cannon was on I-75 with her young son, en route to their new home in Florida, when they suddenly found themselves on a military base, with a man in uniform holding a gun to her head as three Grays stood nearby. In 1979, Diane Fine was on her way from upstate New York to Vermont to see an obstetrics specialist for her high risk pregnancy, and experienced two hours of missing time. When she was finally examined at the clinic, she was told wasn’t pregnant. In 1970, pilot Bruce Gernon was chased by something through the Bermuda Triangle and he has been talking about it ever since – to UFO Hunters, the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, the History Channel, the Sci-Fi channel, and all their foreign counterparts. These individuals have never met. But they share something significant. In 2003, a Roper Organization survey revealed that 33 million Americans may be abductees. Aliens in the Backyard is their story. bandnbutton kobobutton amazonbutton

Miraculous Journey webMiraculous Journey – by Anne & Whitley Strieber – Is death really the end? Why do we fear death? As Anne Strieber faces this inevitable transition, she and her husband Whitley explore the deep meaning of this journey, and find in it a richness of meaning that is largely ignored by a society obsessed with avoiding death at all costs. In 2004, Anne Strieber had a brain hemorrhage that led, most recently, to a brain tumor that is of a type that is generally fatal. So now, after a long struggle, she faces death. Instead of turning away from it, Anne explores the miracle of life and the mystery that death represents. Is it an annihilating end, or a journey into a new kind of freedom? Whitley and Anne Strieber explore this question from the perspective of the love that illuminates their long marriage, and find that, in facing death, it is possible to find the true miracle of why we live our lives in the first place. Life is the miraculous journey, death at once an end and a joyous new beginning. bandnbutton kobobutton amazonbutton
