In 2005, before the publication of his bestselling novels, Alistair Cross penned hundreds of poems which he sometimes shared on various social media platforms. His poetry has earned him appearances on radio talk shows around the world and attracted a large and loyal readership. 

Divided into four parts that are devoted to such subjects as love and loss, passion and seduction, and nightmares and horrors, The Book of Strange Persuasions is a striking collection that features some of his most insightful, sensual, and poignant works. 


“Alistair Cross' poetry is like the ebb and flow of waves on a moonlit beach. Both beautiful and brilliant, his words will alternately thrill you, chill you, and put you in the mood for romance.

- Tamara Thorne, international bestselling author of ETERNITY and HAUNTED
