Top 25 eBook Titles from Crossroad Press in 2017

Top 25 eBook Titles from Crossroad Press in 2017

Since we have so many more eBooks than audio or print, I decided to go with our top 25 titles of 2017. You’ll find a mixture of genres and authors here, but notably non-fiction is still holding the top spots – notably true crime titles and biographies do well also. Clive Barker (no surprise) has several slots, but congratulations to Deborah Morgan, Bill Crider, and Brian Pinkerton for breaking onto this list. Survivor’s Game – a book I wrote with Holocaust Survivor David Karmi, is also on the list, as is my collaboration with Stacy Childs – the medical sports thriller Block 10 and my own novel Nevermore – all of which makes me happy. Dominant this year were the submarine thrillers of Michael DiMercurio…it was a very good year, and 2018 looks to be even better. Thanks to all of you who buy and read… below are a couple of links… one to our current best selling titles at Amazon – and one to our titles at Amazon that are enrolled in the Kindle Unlimited program – there are a LOT Of them, and if you are a KU subscriber I hope you’ll consider checking some of them out… over 400 available titles in that program. If you are NOT part of that program, but read a lot, you might want to give it a look…

Top 15 Print Titles from Crossroad Press in 2017

Top 15 Print Titles from Crossroad Press in 2017

Print editions of our books continue to be a conundrum. Nearly every time we post about a new digital book, dozens of folks say – will there be a print edition? Then, after the hours and hours of extra labor to make it so (and expense per year per title to keep them live) no one buys them. Very seriously – the numbers are staggeringly low. Most of our sales go to the authors themselves for sales at conventions… independent stores want to buy through the distributor, but we can’t offer 50 to 55% off cover price without pricing them ridiculously high, and we would go out of business if we accepted returns. We have begun moving our trade paperbacks to the new Amazon KDP print program, which will work out much better all around… That said – we DID sell books in print last year. Big winner on fiction is Jack Ketchum – and you’ll note that occult and metaphysical non-fiction titles rule the rest of the list… I give you the top 15 selling print book titles from Crossroad Press (with links to Amazon because although I have loaded 1100 books of our 1500 plus into the new store, not all of these are among them so far… onward into 2018!
