New Covers for the Dragon Diaries

The Dragon Diaries is a paranormal YA trilogy which is a spin-off from Dragonfire. It tells the story of Zoë Sorensson’s coming of age as the next Wyvern of the Pyr. There will be new editions of all three books in September of this year – although the new editions of the first two books won’t be available in all territories.

Here are the new covers. Once again, I was able to license the original cover illustration from the artist.

Flying Blind, book #1 of the Dragon Diaries series of paranormal YA novels by Deborah Cooke Winging It, book #2 of the Dragon Diaries YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke Blazing the Trail, #3 of the Dragon Diaries YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke

The Allison & Busby Commonwealth English editions of the first two books remain available in both print and digital, exclusively in the exclusive territories and non-exclusively in the non-exclusive territories. (What does that mean? The UK is an exclusive territory, therefore only the A&B editions are available there. Canada is a non-exclusive territory, therefore both the A&B editions and my new editions are available there.) The A&B editions look like this:

Flying Blind, first of the paranormal young adult Dragon Diaries trilogy by Deborah Cooke, UK edition Winging It, second of the paranormal YA trilogy The Dragon Diaries by Deborah Cooke, UK edition

Since A&B didn’t acquire the rights to Flying Blind, the new edition of that book will be available everywhere.

Spring Fever Today!

Spring Fever, #2 of the Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeThe second book in the Secret Heart Ink series is Spring Fever.

Reyna knows happily-ever-after isn’t in her future…
But after three years of solitude, Reyna is ready for a fling. She’s learned her lesson with bad boys and long-term expectations, so her neighbor’s visiting nephew is the perfect man to lead into temptation. But Kade has a gift for breaking her rules and ensuring Reyna doesn’t regret it, which means one night becomes two…

Kade believes in putting the past where it belongs…
Kade was always waiting for the right woman, and one night with Reyna convinces him that he’s found her. It’s more than great sex and good conversation: Reyna’s determination to shape her life inspires him to rebuild his own, and he knows they’ll be a great team. All he has to do is convince her to take a chance on him and forever. When Reyna’s past catches up to them both, will it destroy their new partnership before the future begins?

Some Guys and One Hot Summer Night

Some Guys Have All the Luck, #4 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeI’ve made a little change to the publication schedule: Some Guys Have All the Luck will be published in July instead of in June.

In hindsight, I’m not sure how I thought I could manage having four books published on the same day, even if three of them were new editions of older books. In reality, these new Dragonfire editions are taking much much MUCH more time to prepare than I had expected and I’m running behind.

I want to be sure to give Cassie and Reid the attention they deserve, so I’ve moved their publication date to July 31. If you’ve pre-ordered the book at iBooks or KOBO, they may send you an update telling you of the change.

One Hot Summer Night, #3 of the Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeI also added One Hot Summer Night to the New & Next page, tentatively scheduling it for August publication. This is Lexi and Gabriel’s second-chance romance and I’m really looking forward to digging in. There won’t be any pre-orders for this one until it’s ready to go, but now you know my plan. 🙂

There’s a post scheduled for tomorrow with links for Spring Fever, coming May 22!

My Juicy Gloss Cardigan in Koigu

I’ve been distracted by a new knitting project and thought I’d share my progress with you today. The pattern is called Juicy Gloss and it’s an open-front cardigan, with lace fronts. It’s knit top-down and has some interesting details. Here’s a link to the Juicy Gloss pattern on Ravelry.

One thing I wanted to change was the length of the fronts. I want them longer but still swingy. So, instead of working increases only for the sleeves and back, I did them for the fronts as well. I took the sweater off the needles last weekend to check the fit and here’s what it looked like then:Juicy Gloss cardigan in Koigu in progress, knit by Deborah Cooke

It’s back on the needles now and I’ve divided for the sleeves. There’s a lovely short-row inset on the back that I’m currently knitting. This designer has really paid attention to the details.

And the colours of the Koigu! These pictures don’t nearly do the colourway justice plus it looks a bit more mauve here than in real life. It’s gorgeous. The mix of colours reminds me of granite. Juicy Gloss cardigan in Koigu in progress, knit by Deborah Cooke

Part of the reason I cast on this project is that I’ve gone to the Koigu tent sale the past two summers and bought yarn, but not knit very much of it. (I did knit one shawl this winter.) I decided I needed to knit a sweater before going again this summer.

What do you think?

More Dragonfire Links

Pre-orders are live for the next two Dragonfire novels! (The GooglePlay links will go live on the on-sale dates.)

Winter Kiss, #4 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeOne kiss can melt his frozen heart…

The mysterious Dragon’s Blood Elixir gives immortality to Magnus, the Pyr’s greatest enemy, and his minions. The Pyr must destroy this source of power, and outcast Delaney vows to complete the quest himself. Delaney was exiled because of his dangerous impulses, and success in eliminating the Elixir will either redeem him or end his suffering.

But his plans don’t take into account his sudden firestorm – or fiery Ginger Sinclair. The firestorm revitalizes Delaney, restoring him to his old self. And when Ginger learns about Delaney’s mission, she realizes she cannot resist a strong man with a noble agenda.

“A beautiful and emotionally gripping fourth novel, WINTER KISS is compelling and will keep readers riveted in their seats and breathing a happy sigh at the love shared between Delaney and Ginger. . . .Sizzling-hot love scenes and explosive emotions make WINTER KISS a must read!”—Romance Junkies

Whisper Kiss, #6 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke

One man’s mission ignites one woman’s fire…

Niall Talbot has volunteered to hunt down and destroy all the remaining shadow dragons – who were weakened by the destruction of the Dragon’s Blood Elixir – before they can wreak more havoc. Among them is his dead twin brother, making Niall’s mission not only dangerous but personal.

Tattoo artist Rox believes the world is a canvas to be made more beautiful. An unconventional spirit who isn’t afraid of anything, she doesn’t even flinch when a shape-shifting dragon warrior suddenly appears on her doorstep. And as a woman who follows her heart in matters of passion, she makes the perfect mate for a firestorm with Niall…

“WHISPER KISS by Deborah Cooke is now my unofficial official favorite! Rox’s quirky characteristics and beauty and Niall’s no nonsense outlook on life as well as his dedication just drew me into this wonderful but often dangerous world of the Pyr and I loved every single scene. Bursting with emotions, passion, and even a real fire or four, I count myself lucky not to have spontaneously combusted! Don’t miss this sizzling addition to Deborah Cooke’s DRAGONFIRE series – it is marvelous!”—Romance Junkies
