All of the Print editions are back on sale at 40% off until the 31st of December… Use coupon code XmasSale to receive 40% off any purchase of print books at the site. Find our Print Editions HERE.
The rebuild of the online store continues. We have more than 650 of our products live, and more going up daily… Come back to the store often… pick up some books to read for the holidays… and please share the links…..and this newsletter.
I promise we will not bother you often. As soon as I figure out a way to put some eBooks on sale for the holidays, I will do so, but we don’t sell them directly in the store…. the reviews and sales are important to our authors on the major retail sites.
As I load all of the books we’ve published one by one, I’m remembering the circumstances behind each – remembering why I love the people, and the books. For a very long time we’ve sort of rolled along, and I now feel as if I’ve done a disservice by not putting a store like this together sooner – I want to share some of the books, and the stories. I’ll be doing a lot of this in my own blog, because these posts – and this newsletter – are meant for sharing and promotion. I hope you will all do that – I hope if you are receiving this, you want to – please believe that we will never spam anyone, we just want you to know about all the words, and stories, audiobooks and more… if you know others who would be interested, please let them know.
Notable additions to the site this week include the works of New York Times Bestselling Author William Bayer – his Janek novels were made into TV movies (and the first of them, SWITCH, I caught being referenced on an episode of Castle a couple of years ago). His Kay Farrow novels, and the foreign detective series are amazing books, and his novel Hiding in the Weave a mystery set in a private school, along withCity of Knives – the latest in his series of novels about foreign detectives – are Crossroad Press originals – published by us first… and we need to get that word out. He’s an amazing author.
Also original to us and available among all of his other works are the three books of Craig Shaw Gardner’sTEMPORARY MAGIC series … he’s funny, he’s clever, and these books will bring a serious smile. They are original to Crossroad Press…
That’s enough for one short note, but I want to leave you with some links. We have listed a lot of AUDIOBOOKS in the store …. we have over a hundred of the 400 titles we have in Kindle Unlimited live here… our print books are 20% off if bought through our site (if you see one not marked for sale let me know… I figured out how to do it after some of the print books were already on the site).
And don’t forget that all of the Stargate eBooks are available for direct order…
We are a little over 200 books into the rebuild of the store, and many of these books have print editions, some hardcovers, and some trade paperbacks. More than 50 of those books are listed currently on the site, and from now until Sunday at midnight, you can buy our print editions for 40% off cover price. The books included in the sale are listed under the print books category:
We will also be creating a SALE category. Books listed there will be small quantities we have on hand for one reason or another, some books from other publishers and signed, limited editions, all at bargain prices. While you are on the site, check out the rest of the books – there are links to all your favorite eBook retailers for each, as well as audiobook links, bios and pages for each author and narrator, and more.
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.
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:

Something very strange is going on in Bowling Green, Kentucky. A masked terrorist attacks a local politician and a news reporter at a minor league baseball game. A Gay Pride parade is bombed. A veterans’ home is invaded and falls under new ownership, and every resident that is not Caucasian has suddenly…disappeared.
Krump Enterprises, run by Ronald Krump and his assistant, Race Scanlon, have begun a systematic takeover of the city, spreading rumors about immigrant violence, tearing down horse farms to build a country club, blackmailing the mayor, and much, much worse.
It’s up to Police Chief Hannity, Doctor Abner Brody, a reporter named Lauren Kelly, a stoner named Walt, and Frederick Douglass, time traveler, to track down the truth, and stop Krump before the city falls under his sway, and even darker days prevail.
Remember Bowling Green is a cautionary tale, first in the Crossroad Press series of Alternative History novels. Though we are not directly affiliated with the ACLU, 80% (our normal author share) of proceeds from this book will go to the ACLU to help fight for our rights and freedoms.
