PNR in Kindle Unlimited

Fallen, #1 of the Prometheus Project of urban fantasy romances by Deborah CookeI’m going to enroll some titles in Kindle Unlimited, which means that they have to be available exclusively at Amazon. I have a number of promotions booked this month, which will influence both the timing of series going into KU and (frankly) how many series go into the program.

I’ve decided that the Dragonfire Novels, the Dragons of Incendium and the Prometheus Project will definitely be enrolled, probably the first week of July.

Wyvern's Mate, book #1 in the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeIt’s the paranormal and fantasy work that’s on the move. I plan to enroll my time travels in KU in July as well. I’m picking away at the unpublishing so you’ll see books disappearing from the various portals. Incendium, for example, is already unpublished at Nook and GooglePlay. There are collections in all three series included in a promotion at Kobo that goes through June 30, so they’ll be available there until that’s completed. The time travels are included in a promotion at Kobo that will run June 27 to July 4 so can’t move to KU until after that.

Coven of Mercy, a short story and vampire romance by Deborah CookeBut I’ve already started enrolling titles. The two short works linked to my dragon PNR series – Coven of Mercy and An Elegy for Melusine – are now enrolled in KU.

Beguiled has been unpublished from other portals and is available only at Amazon, because those two shorts are included in it, but that collection is not in KU.

Snowbound, #1 of the Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeSecret Heart Ink is also enrolled in KU now, and I’ve dropped the prices on all five of these books to 99cents, too.

I’m still thinking about my historical romances. We’ll see how this month’s sales go first.

If you’re missing any of these titles in your collection and prefer to shop at other portals than Amazon, this is a good chance to grab those books.

Pricing on Print Editions

Wyvern's Outlaw, book #4 of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeI’ve made some changes to the distribution details of my print editions from Ingrams, which means that you’ll see better prices at your portal of choice than has been the case to date.

I publish print editions directly through Amazon for Amazon of most titles, and to date, those have had the best prices. l publish print editions for everywhere else from Ingrams. They’ve been priced slightly higher, but these changes will make the prices the same in most cases as the Amazon-direct prices.

As an example, many of my trade paperbacks were $9.99 US on the Amazon direct version but $14.99 US if distributed by Ingrams. In most cases, they’re now $9.99 US from Ingrams, too. I have uploaded some print titles directly to Nook as well – Dragonfire, Flatiron Five, the Champions of St. Euphemia and the True Love Brides – which have similar pricing to the Amazon editions. All the other series come to B&N from Ingrams, and they will all do so in future.

The Frost Maiden's Kiss, a medieval romance and third book in the True Love Brides series by Claire DelacroixSimilarly, the hardcover editions which come from Ingrams – Dragonfire and new ones for Flatiron Five – have dropped in price from $32.99 US or so to $24.99 US or so. The prices vary slightly from book to book – because the length of the book determines the production cost – but you’ll see an improvement.

The new prices were effective yesterday, so they should be live at your portal of choice now.

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

• 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.
