Sixteen and Counting: The Ronald Kelly E-Book Collection!
Several years ago, I became aware of an exciting new outlet for my books and short story collections: digital publishing. Kindles and Nooks were becoming more and more popular and rightly so. A digital e-book reading device could store hundreds, perhaps even thousands of titles, giving you a library in the palm of your hand. Adjustable fonts could make it easier for those with poor vision (like Ol' Ron) to read without eye strain. And the compact size made it convenient to tote your favorite book in your hip pocket or purse (especially something like a Stephen King 1,000 pager). The problem was, I had no idea how to break into this new frontier of digital publishing and said as much on one of the horror discussion forums.
Then, along came David Niall Wilson and his new endeavor, Macabre Ink Press, and the rest is history. Three years later and Macabre Ink is now Crossroad Press, with hundreds of big-name authors to its credit, offering the best of horror in digital book form. I was fortunate to be one of their flagship authors and currently have sixteen titles available online. So far, we have the following books and short story collections ready for downloading: Undertaker's Moon, Fear, Hindsight, The Dark'Un, Hell Hollow, Dark Dixie I & II, The Sick Stuff, Cumberland Furnace, Unhinged, Twilight Hankerings, Flesh Welder, After the Burn, Timber Gray, and The China Doll. The digital edition of my first published short story collection, Midnight Grinding & Other Twilight Terrors is also available through CD Publications.
Soon, Crossroads will be publishing my seventeenth e-book, Long Chills, a collection of 13 of my novellas and long fiction pieces. In the meantime, you can catch up on the rest of the Ronald Kelly E-Book Catalog at Amazon Kindle. Crossroad Press, Barnes & Noble Nook, & Smashwords. Enjoy!
