Guest Post at the Bookshelf Sophisticate

One of the fun things about writing my paranormal YA trilogy, The Dragon Diaries, was the blog tours I did to promote it. I “met” so many reviewers and bloggers who loved books, and their enthusiasm was infectious. Recently one of those bloggers, Katelyn of The Bookshelf Sophisticate, emailed me to find out what I was writing. We had a great chat, and she invited me to write a guest post for her blog. That post goes live today, and because I am the way I am (and it’s Christmas!), I added a contest. So, slip on over to my guest post at The Bookshelf Sophisticate and learn a bit more about my crowded office.

Review for WINGING IT

Cover for WINGING IT, YA #2

Here’s another new review for the Dragon Diaries from Dawn – this one is for WINGING IT. Here’s the last paragraph:

“WINGING IT is a fun, action-packed ride from start to finish., With her trademark writing style, Ms. Cooke delivers one adventure after another as Zoe deals with everything and she really steps up to the plate here. She is definitely one kick-butt heroine that I enjoy immensely, even if she is a teenager. If you are looking for a dragon shifter series to enjoy or need your fix of the Dragonfire world, then grab the books in the Dragon Diaries series. Ms. Cooke delivers another stellar story in the world of dragons and I am eager for the final chapter for Zoe. Will Zoe, her Pyr friends and allies finally beat the Mages? Can Zoe ever live comfortably in two worlds? Find out in The Dragon Diaries Trilogy and get ready for one entertaining ride.”

Four hearts! Thanks Dawn! You can read the whole review, right here.


There’s a new review posted for FLYING BLIND today. Here’s the summary paragraph of the review:

“FLYING BLIND is a wonderful way to be introduced into the Dragonfire world for new readers of this author to enjoying a pick-me-up while loyal readers wait for the next book in either her adult Dragonfire series or the Dragon Diaries series. This had the right amount of drama, action, suspense, humor and more that will please both adult fans and her new young adult fans. Deborah Cooke delivers one heck of a high octane ride in FLYING BLIND. Are you ready to explore the world of the Pyr?”

I think good reviews are the best way to start a day!

The Dragon Diaries

I’ve had a lot of email from readers lately about The Dragon Diaries, specifically asking what’s next for Zoë and the guys now that BLAZING THE TRAIL has been published.

The Dragon Diaries was always intended to be a trilogy, featuring Zoë and her coming of age as the new Wyvern of the Pyr. So, with the publication of book #3, The Dragon Diaries is complete.

There does remain, however, the question of the guys (Liam, Garrett and Nick) and their stories, as well as the entwined stories of Meagan, Jared, Isabelle. There’s also the question of the stories of the other shifters, Derek, Kohana and Jessica. Phew! I like how the series ended (no spoilers here) with lots of questions about the future of the various surviving shifters and their new alliance.

There are no additional books featuring these characters scheduled or contracted at this time. Part of the reason for that is that I can’t see them as young adult novels. The dragon guys are going to make key decisions about their lives and face big challenges during their firestorms, which means that their books will be paranormal romances. It seems reasonable that similar challenges will be faced at the same time by the other shifters and the humans, too. I’m thinking of leaving them all to grow up a bit – both in their timeline and in ours – then revisiting them as they join forces for another big quest. Tentatively, I’m calling this series Dragonfire II, but the first thing on my agenda is finishing Dragonfire I. That’s my plan for 2013, then I’ll get back to Zoë and her pals again.

So, stay tuned!
