Yesterday, I received some welcome news. The rights to two more of the Dragonfire novels have reverted to me. I have Kiss of Fury and Kiss of Fate back. This means that you will only be able to buy NAL’s mass market editions, at least as long as they have inventory. There are NO legitimate digital editions available of these books right now.
As of today, NAL holds the rights to only one of the Dragonfire novels – Kiss of Fire. I’m hoping that the rights to that book revert soon. The reversion of rights is triggered by sales volume – when sales drop below a certain threshold of units per year, it’s possible for the book rights to revert to the author. If you haven’t started the series, it would be great if you could wait to buy the first book until the new editions of the entire series are available.
When I have the rights back to Kiss of Fire, I’ll republish the first eight books in new editions, in both digital and trade paperback format. Also, when Dragonfire is republished, there will also be a companion guide. I’ve talked about this before, and it’s in the works.
So, hold tight – the Pyr are gathering. I hope to be able to set them loose on the world again soon.
A companion guide is an excellent idea, for long series with lots of characters, and comes in handy when quick info is needed especially for people with bad memories … like me 🙂
Ha! I’ve hired someone to pull it together for me. She’s done other ones, plus I think she’ll be more likely to catch things that I’d overlook. I’m pretty excited about it, actually.

Back a year or may be more ago wasn’t there to be a book “There Be Dragons” or some such name? I can’t remember for sure. I haven’t checked in a long time so I hope I haven’t missed it.
Hi – Yes, I had the cover done for the companion book, Here Be Dragons, but held off on publishing it because the Dragonfire books were starting to revert. I hadn’t expected it to happen so soon! So, all matters Dragonfire have been on hold, including the companion volume and the subsequent series, DragonFate, and the historical series, Dragonfire Legend. I’m hoping that we’re back on track soon.
