Kobo added audiobooks to their site at the beginning of September, and also introduced a subscription program for listeners. I finally added the Kobo links for my audiobooks to my website, so am sharing them with you today in one handy post.

For Libraries

My books are available to libraries!

Digital editions of my books are available to libraries through Overdrive and Bibliotheca. This includes my new releases, as well as new editions of many backlist titles. I used to upload directly to Overdrive, but now am using Pronoun (a Macmillan company) to deliver to both of these library portals. Their interface is easier for me, so new releases will appear more quickly on Overdrive than they did before. I also like their version control better.

Print editions of my books are available to libraries through Ingrams. Some of my books are also available in hard cover editions from Ingrams. You can find them on the Collectors’ Editions page here on the site.

My audiobooks are available to libraries through Overdrive and Blackstone Library. Blackstone makes physical cd’s of my audiobooks for libraries, as well as offering digital download licensing.

ACX for Canadian Authors

Today’s the day so many Canadian indie authors have been waiting for! ACX is now open to authors in US, UK, Canada and Ireland. 🙂

ACX (Audiobook Creation Exchange) is a portal that helps indie authors create audiobooks of their work and distribute them. There are many many (many!) voice samples there from narrators all over the world, and you can request auditions – that’s when narrators read a sample of your book, so you can hear their interpretation of it. You can contract for the audiobook through ACX and once the book is done, distribute it to Amazon, Audible and iBooks.

ACX has a blog post today about this new opportunity for Canadian and Irish indies: you can find it right here.

Wider AudioBook Distribution

Three more of my audiobooks are going into wider distribution. As well as finding them at Amazon, Apple and Audible, they’ll be available at Downpour, B&N, Indigo and also available to libraries.

The B&N links are a little bit slow to populate – The Warrior’s Prize should be there, for example – but I’ll share what I have with you, today.

Eileen’s Review of Wyvern’s Mate

Wyvern's Mate, book #1 of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke, in audioHere’s a new review from Eileen for Wyvern’s Mate, which she listened to in audio.

“Both Troy and Drakina have every reason to succeed in their individual quests–the stakes are high on both sides.  Drakina is intrigued by Troy and decides to draw out her time with him–she has 48 hours. Troy is captured by not only her beauty, but her spirit and finds joy in her dragon form.  So what to do?  Can either do what they set out to do?

I hope you enjoy this story where galactic justice just may prevail and two souls find true love.”

Review for The Warrior’s Prize

The Warrior's Prize, a medieval romance by Claire Delacroix and book #4 in the True Love Brides SeriesEileen (Booktalk with Eileen) has posted a wonderful review of The Warrior’s Prize. She reviewed the audiobook edition, which was narrated by Saskia Maarleveld.

Here’s part of the review:
“I could not put this listen down, truth be known.  It was highly suspenseful, layered with themes Malcolm, Elizabeth, and Raphael are struggling with — the meaning of honor, how a person’s character drives choices made, and how events change how life is perceived. It also highlights the angst a person deals with in changing who they are, and accepting the challenge to be better.”

Wyvern’s Mate Just 99 cents

Wyvern’s Mate, book #1 in my Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances is on sale for just 99 cents!

Once, in the Kingdom of Incendium, there were twelve princesses of the realm, each a dragon shifter. Each fiery and passionate. Each possessed of an appetite for pleasure that only her destined mate can satisfy. Twelve men are expected in Incendium, each with special powers of his own, each with the gift to claim one dragon princess’s heart forever.

Wyvern's Mate, book #1 of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeTroy will do whatever is necessary to earn his freedom from solitary confinement on the penal colony of Xanto, even assassinate a princess of Incendium. Being a MindBender, he has a serious advantage as a predator and thinks the princess in question doesn’t have a chance. Only one of them can survive and Troy knows who it will be—until he meets Drakina.

Royal dragon shifter Drakina has a quest of her own, to seduce her destined mate and conceive the crown prince of Incendium. Her father will free her from all other responsibilities if she completes this one task. Drakina craves her independence enough to seduce the unattractive Terran who is the Carrier of the Seed. She’s sure it will be a quick seduction—until she meets Troy.

Worlds collide when Troy and Drakina meet, and passion flares. The attraction is so powerful that they both choose to put their goals aside for one night of passion together. When their respective secrets are revealed, will the truth turn one against the other? Or will destiny allow this star-crossed pair to save each other and their unborn son?
