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!
March Madness has set in, and we have a LOT of new titles rushing through the gates. Check out the new books!. Descriptions can be found in this post for many of our recent titles, and you can purchase them at your favorite retailers using the links below, sorted newest first for convenience.
