Evil Harvest, the True Story of Cult Murder in the American Heartland, is still selling twenty-six years after it was first published. The true crime work, by Rod Colvin, was first published by Bantam Books as a mass-market paperback in 1992. Addicus Books published the book as a trade paperback in 1997. Author Rod Colvin said, “I am pleased that this book still sells as a paperback and as an e-book. It is especially popular in the Midwest, where the story took place.”
Addicus Books Publisher Rod Colvin is featured in a recent issue of the Independent, a publication of the Independent Book Publishers Association. In the article, Colvin talks about the importance of crafting newsworthy angles and strategically pitching stories that focus less on the book and more on the content journalists seek. He cites how Addicus author, Steven Peskind, author of Divorce in Illinois, was invited to appear on a Sunday morning show on WGN TV in Chicago, one of the largest TV markets in the nation.

Each of those attorneys has customized the book to fit the laws in their state.” Colvin added, “We have been most pleased with the success of the project, and we’ve had excellent feedback from the authors.”
