2020 Reading Guide

I finally got this updated for you. 🙂

2020 Reading guide for books by Deborah Cooke and Claire Delacroix

This is the cover of the new reading guide for my books. It includes information about all of my books and series, with suggestions for reading order and a bit of a peek behind the scenes. I update this digital resource every year and change the colour of the cover so you know which one you have.

The reader guide should be a free download at your portal of choice, but if it’s isn’t, you can download it free from BookFunnel.

Just One Fake Date on the Charts

On Saturday, the first BookBub Featured Deal for Just One Fake Date ran and the results were very satisfying. 🙂 This book hadn’t had a promotion before, and it is currently 99cents at all portals. It’s the new first book in the Flatiron Five Fitness series.

I wasn’t really on top of this on Sunday morning, but grabbed these screen shots later in the day. It’s entirely possible (and likely) that the rankings were higher earlier in the day.

By the time I looked at Amazon, Tyler and Shannyn’s book was at #129 overall in the store, #4 in sports romance and #15 in romantic comedy.

At Barnes & Noble, Just One Fake Date earned a bestseller ribbon (yay!).

It was also #8 overall in the store when I looked (although a reader said she’d seen it at #5 earlier in the day.)

At Apple, Tyler and Shannyn’s story was #14 overall in the store when I looked:

It was also included on a carousel for first-in-series bestsellers at Apple – notice that it’s the first one in the listings that’s a paid read, which is cool.

At KOBO, Just One Fake Date was #1 in sports romance, #4 in contemporary romance and #5 in contemporary women.

Just One Fake Date is still 99 cents at the major portals, so if you don’t have your copy yet, grab it today!

New F5F Postcards

I’ve ordered some new postcards for the Flatiron Five Fitness series, with Flatiron Five Tattoo on the back. They’ll be 5″ by 7″.

I can’t wait to see the finished postcards when they arrive.

As always, postcards are free for the asking. If you’d like some of these, you can comment on this post or send me an email. I’m not sure how long it will take for them to arrive from the States, but I’ll send them out once they do.

Just One Fake Date is 99¢!

Just One Fake Date, book one of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

This week, Just One Fake Date, the first book in the Flatiron Five Fitness series is on sale for the first time. You can pick up a copy for 99cents at any of the major portals.

This is Tyler’s new story, with a new heroine, Shannyn.

The sale is only until the 8th, so get your copy today!

Website Reorganization

I’m updating my websites (again – this feels like an endless task sometimes) in order to add some features. First, I’m updating to the new WordPress block editor, which should improve how the sites look, especially on your phone.

While doing that, I’m adding more buy links, particularly for print editions, and updating to cool little buy buttons.

Thirdly, this update allows me to add Paypal buttons for you to buy signed print books directly from me.

Just One Fake Date, book one of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

I’ve finished the updates on my contemporary romances, so if you look at the individual book pages for The Coxwells, Flatiron Five Fitness and Flatiron Five Tattoo, you’ll see those features. I’m offering both individual books for sale and series bundles of print books – they’re both listed on each book page. On the Store page, you’ll find the series bundles only. Once I get this update done across all of my sites, I’ll dig out my inventory of original print editions and add them to the book pages. I think, for example, that I still have some of the Berkley editions of the Coxwells in trade paperback.

Wyvern's Mate, book #1 in the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke

The final change will affect my other sites: I’m going to move the Dragons of Incendium to the Dragonfire Novels site, which will leave me with three websites to manage instead of four. All the PNR will be on the Dragonfire site. I’ve already got the individual books there, under their own Incendium tab – and I learned that there’s a new cool option to display audio samples from Soundcloud, like the one for Wyvern’s Mate. I’ll do the PNR site next, then the Delacroix site last.

I’ll let you know when everything is done!

Dragon’s Heart Print Edition

Look what arrived! It’s the trade paperback edition of Dragon’s Heart.

Dragon's Heart, book three of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke in trade paperback

I’m adding the print links to the book page as they go live. You can also buy a signed copy from me for the cost of the book plus postage, or you can get a signed bookplate from me free for the asking. Just let me know if either option is of interest.

Dragon’s Heart

Free Online Puzzles

I’ve added some new puzzles to my free online puzzles. There are book covers, memes and banners, too! There’s getting to be quite a collection!

You can change the number of pieces when you choose to do a puzzle, but clicking on the arrow beside Play As. It’ll give you a dropdown menu to change the number of pieces, like this:

You can try them all out at Jigsaw Planet. Have fun!

Flatiron Five Fitness Print Editions
