I’m both excited and saddened to announce that in the coming weeks, my book, the Angel Alejandro, will be receiving a new title and cover ~ one that will more accurately convey its content. As much as I love the current packaging (it’s probably my favorite cover, in fact), Alejandro is a very dark story ~ too dark, I think, for this cover art.

This cover pretty much screams high romance, and while there is a good amount of that to be found here (under it all, Alejandro really is a love story) there’s also a lot of sex, death, and gore that isn’t being represented. In other words, I don’t want you thinking you’re getting Twilight when you’re really getting Salem’s Lot. Not that Alejandro has anything to do with vampires ~ that’s just the best comparison I could come up with on the fly and I really have to hurry because Tamara is tapping her foot, waiting for me, and she gets kinda stabby if I take too long on these things …

Anyway … I have seen the new cover and title and I have to say I love it. I’ll be sharing it with you soon but I wanted to make all the proper announcements ahead of time in hopes of minimizing confusion.

A review of THE ANGEL ALEJANDRO:

“It’s hard to go wrong with anything by Alistair Cross, but The Angel Alejandro is a true stunner. Madison O’Riley is brought back from the brink of death by a mysterious, beautiful stranger who has no memory of who he is. In one of the most memorable (and funniest) scenes I’ve read in a long time, they settle on calling him Alejandro. As the unlikely (and adorable) pair set out to uncover Alejandro’s lost memories, another stranger comes to town, a salesman named Gremory Jones who, quite frankly, is the most terrifying fictional villain I’ve met since Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs.

As the plot thickens (and by this I mean it just keeps getting more sick and twisted) the entire town of Prominence falls under an unholy influence that threatens to tear the community to pieces. I was open-mouthed and gasping as the townfolk went on their respective wicked warpaths. I haven’t seen such lunatic (and guiltily riveting) rampages since, well, ever.

Over all, The Angel Alejandro has everything I like in a good book and I rate it a 5 full stars based on plot (compelling), pacing and execution (both top-notch) lifelike characters (the kind you can really sink your teeth into and care about) and the kind of atmosphere that comes to life and fully pulls you into an intriguing new world. Easily one of my all-time favorites and I can see myself returning to it again and again. Recommended for anyone looking for an epic tale of good versus evil with a unique brand of romance and more than a little screaming mad terror along the way.

Fans of Stephen King will love Alistair Cross, and The Angel Alejandro is the perfect place to start.”

The Devil is in the Details
 
Gremory Jones has something for everyone, and for a price, he’s willing to make a deal. Walking the streets in top hat and trench coat, he tempts the citizens with nefarious wares from his shiny black briefcase. But buyer beware: All sales are final – and fatal.

The townspeople are changing in appalling ways and it’s up to Madison – with the help of a psychic, a local priest, and the new chief of police – to help Alejandro unlock his forgotten powers before an unspeakable evil tears apart the fabric of existence … and costs them their very souls …
