Read an Excerpt from Dragon’s Kiss

Dragon's Kiss, book two of the DragonFate novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeThe first full-length paranormal romance in my DragonFate series will be published in November. Pre-orders are live at most portals, and there’s a new excerpt posted on the Dragonfire Novels website. (DragonFate is set in the same world.) Meet the heroine, Bree, in the prologue from the upcoming Dragon’s Kiss.

Dragon shifter and Pyr warrior Kristofer follows the spark of his firestorm into Maeve’s dark realm, only to discover that it’s an illusion and a trap, not his firestorm at all. The fake mate who lures him into Fae is another species threatened by Maeve – Brianna is a Valkyrie, whose sister has been imprisoned by the dark queen. Brianna has to collect a Pyr soul to save her sister, but Kristofer doesn’t intend to die just yet. Trapped by Maeve, Kristofer and Brianna reluctantly join forces to save her sister—even when they discover that their skills are complementary, they know that there can be no future between a mortal Pyr and an immortal collector of souls. How much will either surrender to triumph over Maeve? And what will they do when the firestorm sparks in truth?

The Dragonfire series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke in print editions

At the end of September, the Dragonfire Novels came out of KDP Select, which means that they’re available at all portals again (not just Amazon). I’ve also made Kiss of Fire a free series starter at all portals. This is a great time to meet the Pyr!

The Prometheus Project has also come out of KDP Select, so those four titles are also available at all portals again. Phew.

The Dragons of Incendium series of science fiction romances featuring dragon shifter princesses from space by Deborah Cooke. Now free to read in Kindle UnlimitedThe Dragons of Incendium have remained in KDP Select for another term, so if you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, you can read about those dragon shifter princesses from space free.

Last Chance for Dragonfire in KU

The Dragonfire series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke in print editionsThe Dragonfire Novels have been enrolled in KDP Select this summer, which means that you can read them free if you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber. Their term ends this weekend, which makes this week your last chance to read them in KU. Next week, the entire series will be in wide distribution again – enrolling the books in KDP Select means they have to be available exclusively at Amazon. This weekend, I’ll republish them at the other portals again.

Here’s the series page at Amazon.com.

Happy reading!

Schedule Changes & Amazon Pre-Orders

Dragon's Kiss, book #2 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeIn writing and publishing circles, there’s a lot of discussion about rapid release schedules, i.e. publishing linked books in rapid succession. While I think this is a good idea, it’s not my preferred way to work. I like to take a break from a given world and then come back to it with fresh eyes for the next book in the series. So, I’m going back to my tried and true, because I think I write better books that way. So, I’ve moved the publication dates for the next three DragonFate novels, which will give me time to do other writing in between.

Also, Amazon opened the option of creating longer pre-orders yesterday, so I’ve added the Amazon pre-orders for Some Like It Hot (February) and Pearl Beyond Price (December).

Dragon’s Kiss will be published in November instead of October. This is the last of the halo from Bad Case of Loving You requiring a big revision. The pre-order is up at all portals, now.

Dragon's Heart, book 3 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeDragon’s Heart will be published in May. I’ve just added the pre-order for Amazon.

Dragon’s Mate will be published in October 2020. This date will remain incorrect at Nook until November, as pre-orders can’t be scheduled more than a year in advance at that portal. (I just learned that. Who knew?) There isn’t a pre-order at Apple anymore, because they can’t be scheduled more than a year out. The listing disappeared when I moved the date and I expect it will reappear at the end of October. There isn’t a pre-order at Amazon on this one because it’s too far out.

Here be Dragons, the Dragonfire Companion and guide to the paranormal romance series by Deborah CookeOn the upside, some other things can slide into the months in between. For example, Here Be Dragons: The Dragonfire Companion will be published on December 31. The pre-order links are live for this one now, even at Amazon, and it’s going to be a fat book.

I’m excited about this. Having the pre-orders up makes me feel organized and I like having a bit more time between books.

Hard Cover Editions with Cloth Covers

Ingrams, the supplier I use for printing my books, has announced that they will be discontinuing their clothbound books. From their email: “On October 22, 2019, we will be retiring our blue and grey cloth covers and gold foil spine stamping in favor of a blue and grey digital cloth image with linen textured lamination.”

I really like the clothbound editions so am disappointed by this, although I understand that it must be a more complicated production process.

Right now, I have the Flatiron Five series and the Dragonfire Novels available in these clothbound hardcover editions. Both have blue cloth. The interiors are the same as the trade paperbacks and the books are just a little larger for the case. Here are my Dragonfire editions beside each other on the shelf:

If you’d like any of these books in the clothbound hardcover editions, you should order them soon. You can order them from the usual online portals – there are links on the landing pages for the books – or you can order signed copies directly from me.

Here’s a link for ordering the Dragonfire Novels in hardcover from me:

Kindle Unlimited Update

This summer, I put some books into KDP Select, which means you can read them free if you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber. This was an experiment – I think KU skews to new content not backlist, and also to frequent publicataion. My suspicions have been proven right this summer, at least for my books. As a result, these titles will be going back into wide distribution at the end of their 90 day term in KU and I wanted to give you fair warning of the change.

The Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke
The first three books in the Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances are currently in KU, but will finish their term September 1 and go wide again. This will make them available at all portals in time for the publication of the fourth and final book in the series, Under the Mistletoe.

Coven of Mercy, a short story and vampire romance by Deborah Cooke An Elegy for Melusine: A Medieval Fairy Tale by Claire Delacroix Beguiled, a collection of short stories and novellas by Claire Delacroix and Deborah Cooke

Coven of Mercy and An Elegy for Melusine will also finish their term in KU on September 1 and go wide. This will make them available at all portals before Dragon’s Kiss is published, which is good since they are connected to the DragonFate Novels. I’ll also republish the collection Beguiled (which includes both of those stories) at all portals in September.

If you’re a KU subscriber, grab your copies this month!

Dragon’s Kiss and Under the Mistletoe Pre-Orders

We have pre-orders!

Under the Mistletoe is the fourth and final book in the Secret Heart Ink series.

Under the Mistletoe, a contemporary Christmas romance and #4 in the Secret Heart Ink series by Deborah CookeAlthough Chynna is a complete romantic, she avoids weddings because they renew the pain of losing her beloved husband. So does Christmas, so an invitation to Lexi and Gabe’s holiday wedding should be easy to decline. All the same, she’s tempted to see three recipients of her secret heart tattoos happily in love, and with some encouragement, agrees to attend. A hook-up with Trevor, Gabe’s handsome partner, seems like the ideal way to settle her nerves—but Trevor wants a lot more than one night with the most attractive woman he’s ever met. Chynna is the woman he’s been waiting for—all he has to do is convince her to take a chance on love again, with him.

Coming September 24!

KDP Select and Dragons

I’ve enrolled several of my paranormal romance series into KDP Select this week, which means you can read them free in Kindle Unlimited.

The Dragonfire series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke in print editions

First up, The Dragonfire Novels. This series is complete and features dragon shifter heroes on a quest to save the earth from evil Slayers – but destined love keeps complicating their mission.

Start the series with Kiss of Fire.

Visit the Dragonfire Novels series page at Amazon.com

The Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal and science fiction romances by Deborah Cooke enrolled in Kindle Unlimited

The Dragons of Incendium series featured dragon shifter princesses from space and the men bold enough to love them.

Here’s a link to Wyvern’s Mate at Amazon.com.

And here’s a link to the series page at Amazon.com.

Rebel, #3 of the Prometheus Project of urban fantasy romances by Deborah CookeI’ve also enrolled the Prometheus Project urban fantasy romance series, although there’s a bit of an issue with Fallen that Amazon is straightening out.

My Claire Delacroix time travel romances are currently enrolled in KDP Select.

You can read Coven of Mercy and An Elegy for Melusine free in KU right now.

And finally, my Secret Heart Ink series is also enrolled in KDP Select, although it’s just a teensy tiny heart tattoo that might have magical powers in that contemporary romance series.

Happy reading!

Housekeeping

Fallen, an urban fantasy romance featuring a fallen angel hero and book one of the Prometheus Project by Deborah CookeWith the publication of Maeve’s Book of Beasts, it’s clear that a lot of my other paranormal heroes are living in the world of Dragonfire. As a result, I’ve created some new tabs and moved some pages onto this site.

You’ll find the Prometheus Project living under the new tab Angels (which are really all Fallen Angels), and Coven of Mercy is living under another new tab called Vampires.

The Prometheus Project is a complete four-book series set in a dystopian future featuring fallen angel heroes, but there’s a dead fallen angel at the beginning of Maeve’s Book of Beasts. I think it’s fair to assume that he has something in common with my future-set angels. That series begins with Fallen – I hope you like Montgomery as much as I do!

Coven of Mercy, a vampire romance and short story by Deborah CookeCoven of Mercy is a short story and vampire romance. Micah, the hero of that story, has a cameo appearance in Maeve’s Book of Beasts, and Sebastian – the vampire and continuing character in DragonFate – is a reluctant member of Micah’s coven.

The Dragonfire Novels, the Prometheus Project and the Dragons of Incendium are moving into Kindle Unlimited this month. Coven of Mercy and An Elegy for Melusine (which explains Mel and Raymond’s backstory) are already there.

So, if you’re interested in my paranormal romance (and urban fantasy romance) hop on over to the Dragonfire Novels website and follow that blog.
