24 Books

This year has been a really busy one for me in terms of publishing, but I didn’t realize how busy until I sat down and made a list last weekend. I love lists and this is yet more evidence why.

I’ve been publishing a LOT of books this year. Here’s the list so far:

One Knight Enchanted, book #1 of the Sayerne series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix1. One Knight Enchanted
This was a revision of an older title (originally published in 1998 as Enchanted) which I thought would be quick and easy. Instead, it turned out to be such a huge editorial process that it would have been easier to just write an entirely new book.

2. In the Midnight Hour
Book #3 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romance. This is Damon and Haley’s book.

3. A Duke By Any Other Name
This is book #2 in my Brides of North Barrows series of Regency romances. It was originally published in the Christmas at Castle Keyvnor anthology Charmed at Christmas, but I published it on its own in March.

Wyvern's Angel, book #9 of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke4. Wyvern’s Angel
Book #9 in my Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances.

5. Kiss of Fire
A new edition of the paranormal romance and book #1 of the Dragonfire Novels. Again, I thought this would be an easy update, but it was more work than I expected – plus there were seven more titles to be prepped for publication. The titles that were already available all had to be updated, as well.

6. Kiss of Fury
A new edition of book #2 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances.

Kiss of Fate, #3 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke7. Kiss of Fate
A new edition of book #3 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances.

8. Winter Kiss
A new edition of book #4 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances.

9. Whisper Kiss
A new edition of book #6 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances.

10. Darkfire Kiss
A new edition of book #7 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances.

Flashfire, #7 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke11. Flashfire
A new edition of book #8 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances.

12. Ember’s Kiss
A new edition of book #9 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances.

13. Snowbound
Book #1 of Secret Heart Ink, a contemporary romance series that is also set in the Flatiron Five world.

14. Spring Fever
Book #2 of Secret Heart Ink.

Some Guys Have All the Luck, #4 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke15. Some Guys Have All the Luck
This is book #4 of my Flatiron Five series of contemporary romance.

That’s where I’m at so far. Some of these haven’t been published yet, but they’re all locked and loaded at the portals and thus are off my desk (and off my To Do list).

Still to come for this year are the following titles:

16. Nimue’s Gift
A short story set in the Dragons of Incendium world, and #10 in that series, coming later this month (along with the print edition of Wyvern’s Angel).

17. Flying Blind
This is book #1 of the Dragon Diaries, a paranormal YA trilogy set in the world of the Dragonfire Novels, follows Zoë’s coming of age as the new Wyvern. It’s being republished in a new edition.

Winging It, book #2 of the Dragon Diaries paranormal YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke18. Winging It
This is book #2 of the Dragon Diaries, a paranormal YA trilogy set in the world of the Dragonfire Novels, follows Zoë’s coming of age as the new Wyvern. It’s being republished in a new edition.

19. Blazing the Trail
This is book #3 of the Dragon Diaries, a paranormal YA trilogy set in the world of the Dragonfire Novels, follows Zoë’s coming of age as the new Wyvern. It’s being republished in a new edition.

20. Here Be Dragons: A Dragonfire Companion
A world guide for the Dragonfire Novels, coming in October.

One Hot Summer Night, #3 of the Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke21. One Hot Summer Night
Book #3 of Secret Heart Ink, coming in September. This Gabe and Lexi’s second chance romance.

22. Going to the Chapel
A short story set in the Flatiron Five world and #4 in the series, coming in September. My working title for this is Two Weddings and a Baby, which tells you all you need to know about it.

23. Under the Mistletoe
Book #4 of Secret Heart Ink and Chynna’s story, as well as a Christmas story, coming in October.

24. The Runaway Bride
Book #2 of my Brides of Inverfyre series of medieval Scottish romances and Ross’s story, coming in October.

Phew! This list makes me realize why I feel like I’ve been working all the time! It’s good to have all these books available again, but I’m glad to be moving on to new work. There won’t be 24 releases next year, though!

Wyvern’s Angel

Wyvern's Angel, book #9 of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeWyvern’s Angel has been published!

I was a little late with this one, but the book is available now. Phew!

Wyvern’s Angel is book #9 in the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances featuring dragon shifter princesses from space. Bond, the hero of this one, is a fallen angel with a taste for the pleasures of the material world, while Percipia doesn’t have a lot of patience for savoring. I like these two together and how they shift each other’s assumptions. 🙂

Buy Wyvern’s Angel at:
Amazon
iBooks
• Nook
KOBO
GooglePlay
buy directly from Deborah’s Selz store. (The ebook will be delivered by BookFunnel.)

The print mini-book will be available once Nimue’s Gift is published.

New Pub Date for Wyvern’s Angel

Wyvern's Angel, #9 of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeI’ve moved the publication date for Wyvern’s Angel into May. It turns out that the Pyr – my Dragonfire shifters – are consuming a lot of my time, as I prepare the new editions of the first eight Dragonfire books. We have a system now, and are past the halfway point, but Wyvern’s Angel isn’t written yet.

Boo. I’m not thrilled about making this change, but reality sometimes bites.

If you pre-ordered at Nook, please cancel your pre-order and wait for the new link. I unpublished the book there but a new buy link will reappear closer to the publication date. I’m changing the distribution method for getting my books at Nook. This shouldn’t be your issue, but I learned this week that Nook will merrily fulfil pre-orders for books that have been unpublished, even if there isn’t a book file. Gah. Better that you cancel the order now, rather than try to get a refund in April. I’m trying to get them to sort this out at the back end, but the easiest solution is for you to cancel your pre-order.

For 2018, I’m hosting a giveaway for my newsletter subscribers. Each month, one subscriber will be chosen to receive the gift.

Changes to the Newsletter

I’ve made some changes to my newsletter, in order to make a fresh start in the new year.

First, the newsletter will come from a new email address. Please add deborah AT deborahcooke DOT com to your address book. The next newsletters will go out the week of the 26th and you might need to look for them in your spam folder (or promotion folder if you use gmail) because of the changed sender address.

Second, I changed newsletter service providers. The main difference on your end is that the newsletter will look different. I’m still playing with the design!

Third, I stopped all of the automations and simplified them. Each of the groups below now has a single welcome message when you sign up.

(I realized later that if you’d subscribed in the last couple of weeks, I probably cut off your welcome sequence. 😦 I apologize for that, but the fact that I made this mistake is yet more proof that things had gotten too complicated.)

Fourth, I eliminated the dedicated series lists. They seemed like a good idea, but were proving hard to maintain. I needed to simplify things so I can write more.

Fifth, I eliminated the All the News option. Compiling this newsletter was a problem as it always exceeded the maximum size for the email.

Sending too long of a newsletter means several things:
• the long newsletter will be truncated by some email servers, which has to be annoying to subscribers;
• the truncation cuts off the footer. This means that the bit of code that tracks whether the newsletter is opened hasn’t even been delivered, so it can’t be triggered, so the information about open rates is just wrong.
• my previous provider also had some issues with reporting when subscribers read the newsletter on their phones. Given how many people who do that, I had no faith in the data.

There are lots of sexy things you can do to resend to subscribers who haven’t opened the newsletter or to re-engage with subscribers, but if the open data is wrong, then those really aren’t possibilities anymore.

The new set-up is much like the old in that there are three groups in my list:

Dragons & Angels is the newsletter for my Deborah Cooke paranormal romances. Subscribers were added to this list who had chosen Deborah’s paranormal romances in the old list, and also if they had joined the Dragons of Incendium list.

Heroes & Bad Boys is the newsletter for my Deborah Cooke contemporary romances. Subscribers were added to this list who had chosen Deborah’s contemporary romances in the old list, and also if they had joined the Flatiron Five list.

Knights & Rogues is the newsletter for my Claire Delacroix medieval romances. Subscribers were added to this list who had chosen Claire’s medieval romances in the old list, and also if they had joined any of the medieval romance series lists (like the one for the Champions of St. Euphemia).

Those subscribers who had chosen to receive All the News were added to all three groups.

For 2018, each group will get a newsletter when there’s news about relevant books. I’m going to focus more on new releases. Subscribers will get a 30% discount on many new releases for shopping in my online store – this offer will only last a short time around the launch date. The transaction will be processed in my Selz store and the book will be delivered by BookFunnel, who will ensure that the book is delivered and ready to be read on the device of choice.

I’m pretty happy with this change and how well the transition went. Be aware that managing your group membership is a little different. On the old service, you could update your preferences and change which groups you belonged to. On the new service, when you choose to unsubscribe, you can leave specific groups or leave the list completely. To join new groups, you need to use the links above to subscribe to them.

My next newsletters will be delivered by the new service from the new address. Look for Dragons & Angels on December 26, Knights & Rogues on December 27, and Heroes & Bad Boys on December 28. They might end up in your spam or promotions folder this first time, so keep an eye out for them.

I have a lot of new ideas for the newsletter for 2018 and am looking forward to this fresh start!
