FIEND me on Facebook


Good evening, Cross Talkers,

My author page on Facebook is up and functioning.

There you will find my personal photos, a catalog of my poetry, updates on current and upcoming material, and ~ of course ~ the various musings of a mad and morbid mind.

You don’t even have to send me a FIEND request… just follow the link below the picture and give the page a ‘like.’

Till then, happy haunting…

~Mr. Cross~

The Horror Season


imagesCAR0ARS5

Good afternoon, Cross Talkers,

Now that I have finished the parts that I can do for the website, I have more time to do what I love to do: write. Due to a deadline on a sure-thing, I am making the collaborative project with Tamara Thorne my priority. As we go along, I will keep you updated on the progress. As of now, we are well into the second act, and it’s getting more fun to write by the page. I’m falling in love with these characters and their lives, and I’m loving every minute of being able to write with one of the greats.

I also have been able to get some of the interviews and guest blogs going. One of which is on the blog of Tamara Thorne herself. Here is my interview on her Little Blog of Horrors, where I discuss horror-writing. I had a blast:http://tamarathorne.wordpress.com/2013/09/18/thirteen-questions-with-alistair-cross-2/

If you haven’t already, go give Tamara’s author page a like on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/tamarathornebooks, as you will be seeing a lot more of us together in the future, I suspect.

Have a great evening and remember: Strangers have the best candy…

Mr. Cross

Thank Yous and Such…


Good evening, Cross Talkers,

I have finished going through the last of the questions for the “Ask Alistair” section of my upcoming website. In the next week or so I am hoping to have them answered and then they will be on the site once it goes live… at least, that is the plan.

Thank you, everyone, for participating and making this a lot of fun. The website is coming along nicely, and I would like to give a great, big, Thank You to Zeb Jenkins, the best web master in the world.

I also need to give a big thanks to Berlin Malcom, for all the great marketing, PR and website help, Tamara Thorne, my co-author, for hooking me up with all the right people, Lauren, for being the best there is, and Lily Cavanaugh, for all the tedious research you do for me. There is no way I could do all of this myself.

So, thank you all… from the very bottom of that empty pit where my heart should be…

Horrifically yours,

Mr. Cross

Ask Alistair

Hello, Cross Talkers,

This is your last chance to ask me (almost) anything. Just private message me your (preferably writing-related) question at Facebook at: www.facebook.com/crossalistair and the question and answer will appear in the “Ask Alistair” section of my upcoming website.

It won’t be long now.

Thank you to everyone who has sent me questions. It’s kept me busy.

Mr. Cross

HORROR, DARK SHADOWS AND ME


My co-author Tamara Thorne is doing a book signing at Dark Del’s tomorrow. She will be signing with Lara Parker, the actress who played Angelique in the original Dark Shadows, and horror legend Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, and Amber Benson, who played Tara on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Very exciting stuff. If you haven’t yet, go give Tamara Thorne a like on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/tamarathornebooks

Tamara Thorne's Little Blog of Horrors

Tomorrow, Saturday the 14th,  I’m signing books at Dark Delicacies alongside one of my childhood idols, Lara Parker, who played Angelique on the original Dark Shadows, and I’m just a wee bit giddy about it.  Woohoo! I get to sit next to Angelique!  Very little arouses my inner fangirl, but this sure does!

Quentin Angelique

Dark Shadows came on when I was in elementary school.  Because it had a spooky feel I raced home to watch it every day.  At first, I hung in with the series simply because gothically spooky old Collinwood looked like it should be full of ghosts, but when vampire Barnabus Collins was barnaintroduced – quickly followed by witches (Angelique!), ghosts (Quentin!), werewolves and all sorts of other delights – I was well and truly hooked.

Dark Shadows touched every facet of my life.  From earliest childhood I could never get enough of…

Upcoming Work


Good afternoon, fellow Hounds of Horror,

I have felt a bit under the weather the past few days and have taken some time off . However, as of next week, I am back to writing full swing.

I’m working on two projects ~ and next week, I’m turning my attention to the novella I am co-authoring with Tamara Thorne. It’s a fun little romp through a small town of our own design, complete with several generations of a particularly interesting bloodline… with a set of particularly eerie talents.

I’m not at liberty to elaborate any further, but as for the collaboration itself, it’s going grand. Tamara and I have taken turns on the scenes, choosing the characters who speak to us most clearly, and following them down their dark, twisted, little adventures. It’s been a ride.

As for the story, I dare say we are about half-finished. But don’t quote me on that. I have sent scenes to Tamara for editing ~ as she has done the majority of that task (and quite well) ~ so I haven’t seen the progress integrated in any way. But it feels like we’ve made real headway.

Here is the lower third part of the cover we’ve chosen:

We’re opting to disclose the cover in segments according to our progress on the book ~ waiting to reveal it in its entirely until we have finished.

It’s been a good time, and I think fans of Tamara Thorne’s will find her integrity intact. This story has everything her readers have come to expect ~ humor, horror, intrigue, and high suspense, peopled with the fascinating and unique characters we all love. I’ve spent the past year reading and re-reading Tamara’s novels ~ not to mention I grew up on them ~ to make sure that none of her form will be compromised. And I think we’re doing a bang-up job.

I will keep you updated on our progress and I hope everyone has a wicked-good weekend.

Till then…

~Mr. Cross~
