Don’t Miss out on Free Audiobooks!

There is a site where we are offering a great number of free audiobook download codes – aptly named “Freeaudiobookcodes.com” – run by Narrator and Sound Engineer extraordinaire – Jeffrey Kafer. Right now you can get US and UK Audible download codes for a ton of Crossroad Press books, with more coming. We are hoping you’ll take a chance on audio (a free chance – did I say that?) and that you’ll take the time at the end to leave, if not a review, at least a rating for the author and narrator. We are literally fighting against the “machine” in trying to market audiobooks… the market has always been owned by an elite group of publishers and marketed by elite trade periodicals no one can afford to subscribe to, or advertise in, without big corporate money. Here is your chance to hear some amazing books – and support our authors and narrators. Here are some titles with codes available right now:

Top 25 Trade Paperbacks from Crossroad Press for 2019

Top 25 Trade Paperbacks from Crossroad Press for 2019

Last, but not least, we have our top-selling paperbacks for 2019. We don’t have a lot of hardcovers, so we’re skipping that this year, but paperbacks we’ve got. I have to say, for all the “I hate digital, I only like the feel of paper, will it be coming out in print? I only buy print books” comments that I find it odd how few print books actually do well.  I can tell you without doubt that – had sales already been reported on F. Paul Wilson’s The Last Christmas, it would have been topping this list, and on all of our top 25 lists, so next year I suspect will be the year of Repairman Jack… I’m happy to present a very diverse list here of the top 25 Trade Paperback titles for Crossroad Press in 2019!

Top 25 Crossroad Press Audiobooks for 2019

Top 25 Crossroad Press Audiobooks for 2019

I have a particular love for audiobooks. We started out with very little knowledge and a lot of ambition. Without Jeffrey Kafer, who has acted as narrator, sound engineer, sometimes cover creator and technical adviser for audio, we’d never have gotten this far. Without the wonderful folks at ACX and all the help they’ve offered over the years we would also not be here. We’ve sold more than a quarter of a million audiobooks, and are approaching our 700th completed audiobook through ACX and Audible. Here is a list of the top 25 bestselling audiobooks for 2019:

Top 25 Crossroad Press eBooks for 2019

Top 25 Crossroad Press eBooks for 2019

Every year we try to give a shout-out to the books and authors who performed the best over the past year, and 2019 will be no exception. Keep in mind that some of the top books were fortunate enough to receive a leg up from Bookbub promotions, and that can make a significant difference. In fact, if you want to support authors, one of the best, simplest, and least obtrusive ways to do that is to follow them on Bookbub. You will only be notified if that author has a new book come out, or a Bookbub “deal” but a large number of followers allows them to take advantage of promotions they would otherwise be ineligible for. Reviews are also important – not long, book-report like reviews, but a line or two and some stars to help qualify them for the higher-end promotions.  That is the end of my “help our authors” note—here is the list of the top 25 eBooks from Crossroad Press for 2019:
