Phase Two of PNR to KU

Fallen, #1 of the Prometheus Project of urban fantasy romances by Deborah Cooke

As previously mentioned, my paranormal romances are moving into KDP Select this spring, which means they’ll be exclusive to Amazon and you’ll be able to read them free if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription. I’m making the move in phases, by series, since there are so many books.

The Prometheus Project and the Dragon Diaries are now enrolled in Kindle Unlimited. I’ve added a suite of review quotes to the pages for Fallen, Guardian and Rebel—Carol Malcolm’s reviews at Bitten by Books are detailed and give a good idea what to expect from this series.

Both Fallen and Flying Blind are free through Satuday at Amazon.com

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

The Dragons of Incendium books have been unpublished at the aggregators. It takes a while for those files to come down, so I’ll remove them from the other portals in a week or two, then enroll them in KDP Select. I’ll let you know when they’re there.

The boxed set, Dragons First, also came down from the aggregators, since Wyvern’s Mate is included in that bundle. It won’t go into KU though until all three included books are enrolled there.

In May, all the Dragonfire Novels will be moving to KU, too.

Lots of books in transition!

PNR on the Move

Dragonfire: the Complete Series, a digital bundle including all fourteen paranormal romances in the Dragonfire series by Deborah Cooke

I’m moving my paranormal romances into KDP Select this spring, which means you’ll be able to read them free in Kindle Unlimited. The move will be made in stages because there are so many books.

First will be the Prometheus Project and the Dragon Diaries. I’ve unpublished both of these series at KOBO and the aggregators. By the end of March, I’ll unpublish them everywhere else and move them into KU.

In April, I’ll move the Dragonfire Novels and the Dragons of Incendium.

In May, I’ll move the DragonFate Novels. By June 1, the transition will be done.

As with my historical romances, all new releases will be available in wide distribution for a week before being made exclusive to Amazon.

If you’re missing a title and you shop at a portal other than Amazon, now’s the time to fill the gaps!

The Dragons Have Landed

I’m making progress on my website amalgamation. The landing pages for all my paranormal romance books are now replicated on this website. They’re all under the Paranormal Romance tab.

I still have bonus content to move and some other bits and ends, but since the books are here, all PNR blog posts will be here from this point forward.

Oh, here’s my next PNR release. 🙂

The Dragon Diaries Update

Flying Blind, book one of the Dragon Diaries paranormal YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke
1. Flying Blind

I’m very happy to share the news that all of the rights to the Dragon Diaries have reverted to me. Phew! That took a while. Three years ago, most of the rights to this YA trilogy reverted to me, but English Commonwealth rights for the first two books had been licensed to another publisher and that deal was still in place. Those rights have now reverted, so all the rights are mine again. (Yay!)

You might remember that I licensed the original cover art from the artist, so that my editions would look similar to the original editions – and people wouldn’t think they were new books. Here’s a blog post on the Dragonfire site about that.

2. Winging It

What does this mean? Well, first of all, I’ve made my ebook editions of Flying Blind and Winging It available in all geographic regions (geos) at Apple, Amazon and KOBO.

Secondly, I’ve made those books available via all my usual portals and distributors—some of them allow less control over geographic territories, so I couldn’t publish my editions there in case they infringed on the subrights deal. There are more links on the landing pages now.

Thirdly, I asked Amazon to link my ebook editions with the print editions from the other publishers. They retain the right to sell their existing print stock, which is standard and customary, so the books might as well be linked. There are also reviews on the print editions from their ebook editions, so my Amazon product pages look a little better with more reviews.

There seems to be a lot of print stock available so I’m not going to rush in to make print editions of these books myself. I’m thinking that next year, I may do a series bundle and make that available in trade paperback. If you have feelings either way about this, please let me know.

Finally, it means I can think about revisiting those characters and adding to their stories. I never add to works to which I don’t hold all of the rights – I learned my lesson about that – so having these books back means I can think about Jared and Zoë again. This gives me joy.

And please join me in a happy dance today!

New Editions of The Dragon Diaries

Today, all three books in The Dragon Diaries trilogy are available in new editions!

Flying Blind, book #1 of the Dragon Diaries series of paranormal YA novels by Deborah Cooke

Zoë is the Wyvern of the Pyr—the one female dragon shape shifter with special powers.  But Zoë is at the bottom of the class when it comes to being Pyr, and her powers are AWOL. Worse, there’s no reference book to consult, and the last Wyvern is dead….

Everything changes when Zoë’s best friend is bullied and Zoë reacts. Before she can blink twice, her inner dragon is loose, and she’s suspended from school and headed to a shape shifter boot camp with guys she’s known all her life. But soon she’s doubting her powers—and even some of her friendships.

Zoë quickly realizes she has to master her powers yesterday—there’s danger ahead and boot camp is a trap. A secretive group, the Mages, want to eliminate all shifters and the Pyr are next in line—unless Zoë and her friends can solve the riddle and work together to save their own kind…

“Zoe is a wonderful heroine–smart, strong and sympathetic. Bring on book two!”

Winging It, book #2 of the Dragon Diaries YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke

Zoë Sorensson yearns to come into her powers as the only female dragon shifter. But being part of two worlds is more complicated than she expected. It’s bad enough that she’s the target of the Mages’ plan to eliminate all shifters—she also has to hide her true nature from her best friend Meagan, a human. For her sixteenth birthday, all Zoë wants is one normal day, including a tattoo and a chance to see hot rocker Jared.

Instead, the Pyr throw her a birthday party but ban Meagan from attendance, putting Zoë in a tight spot. Things get even worse when Zoë is invited to the popular kids’ Halloween party and Meagan’s left out. Zoë knows the party is a trap laid by the host, an apprentice Mage. When Meagan gets a last-minute invite, Zoë must save the day—and her best friend—without revealing her fire-breathing secrets…

Blazing the Trail, #3 of the Dragon Diaries YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and Zoë Sorensson’s love life is heating up. Cute, loyal, and understanding, wolf shifter Derek is pretty much the perfect guy. He likes Zoë, and he knows what it’s like to have to keep a secret. Yet, Zoë can’t help but wish it was rebel rocker Jared asking her to the Valentine’s dance instead. But Jared’s too busy playing hot and cold with her heart, calling Zoë his dragon girl one minute and then taking special interest in her best friend the next.

Zoë is just about ready to breathe fire, especially once she uncovers a new threat that targets her friends. Although Zoë thought the Mages were defeated, they’re back and have invoked an old spell to give them new power—they plan to eliminate all shape shifters on the night of the big dance. Now, Zoë must lead an alliance of young shifters to battle the Mages and figure out exactly what—and who—she wants, before it all goes up in smoke…

“I have been a huge fan of Deborah Cooke for many years. When a new release comes across my path, I truly do a happy dance. Cooke has lived up to her previous work with BLAZING THE TRAIL. I loved how Zoe deals with the everyday issues in front of her while trying to save the world with the Pyr and fellow shifters.”—Fresh Fiction
