I’ve enrolled several of my paranormal romance series into KDP Select this week, which means you can read them free in Kindle Unlimited.
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 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.
I’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.
There’s a sale running at Kobo on books written by Canadian authors from June 27 through July 4. When you buy one book, you can buy a second for 50% off! The thirteen participating authors are:
Kate St. James
All of these titles will be enrolled in Kindle Unlimited in July, just FYI.
As usual at Kobo, there are territorial landing pages.
I’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.
It’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 Incendium, for example, is already unpublished at Nook and GooglePlay.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.
But 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.
Secret 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.
I’ve told you about this big buy-one-get-one sale at Kobo, but now I have a fun flipbook to share with you. This is an easy way to see ALL of the books included in the sale.

Today, I’m having a Boxing Day sale on ebooks in my Selz store. Save 50% on ebooks! Your ebooks will be delivered by BookFunnel in either ePUB or MOBI, and they’ll make sure that you get your ebook onto your reading device of choice. Recent releases like The Runaway Bride are excluded from the sale, and so are books that are usually 99-cent reads. (The store won’t process sales for less than 99-cents US.)
But there are lots of books included, so this is a great chance to fill the gaps in your collection.

You might want to cut and paste it to make sure you have it exactly right. 🙂
Remember that the store operates in Canadian dollars. Right now, $1 CA is about $0.74 US.
This is a one-day sale, so don’t delay!
My Scottish time travel romance, The Last Highlander, is on sale for just 99 cents this week!
Scotland, 1314: After the Scots reclaim Edinburgh Castle, Alasdair MacAuley only wants to celebrate. But the revels are interrupted by an old crone who claims the castle’s true owner is the legendary witch Morgaine le Fee. Dared by his fellow warriors to go meet the witch, Alasdair heads down a flight of stairs — and tumbles right into another century…
Scotland, 1998: American Morgan Lafayette is in Scotland to enjoy the history, not to ogle men in kilts. So when she stumbles upon a brawny man in a kilt, she is less than enthralled. She is certain he’s drunk for he claims Morgan is a powerful sorceress who has brought him to her magical kingdom! Despite her reluctance, she is intensely drawn to this handsome Highlander and the mystery surrounding him, a mystery that has the power to alter history — and her heart — forever…

My two time travel romances, The Last Highlander and The Moonstone, have new covers!
These two books were originally published by Berkley in their Time Passages line. Here are the original mass market covers – these are digital photographs of the actual books, so the colors aren’t as saturated as on the real book covers. (Imagine. We didn’t get jpegs of our covers in those days!)
These were the first books that I republished in new editions when I started to go indie. They were also the first covers that I had a cover artist design. These are the covers they’ve had since 2011:
I thought they were due for an update, so Kim and I went back to the drawing board. We decided to return to the “guy alone”, since these books aren’t that sexy, and to get rid of the clock. The time travel would be shown by the two locations, one modern and one medieval, behind the guy. Here are the new covers:
The new editions have been uploaded to all of the various portals. If you bought the books before, you should be able to download the new edition free. That might even happen automatically. If you can’t get it, please contact customer support at the portal.
If you’ve been looking for my Scottish time travel romance and romantic comedy, The Last Highlander, you’ll have discovered that its digital edition is currently unavailable.
This morning, I thought I’d tell you why. 🙂
The main reason is that I’ve been invited to participate in an exciting project. This requires The Last Highlander to be in Kindle Unlimited, which means that it can’t be available anywhere else while it’s available through KU. I’ve removed the book from sale now, to make sure it has time to disappear from all the portals that are fed content by the big portals. After this is all done, I’ll republish The Last Highlander. So, you can expect to find Morgan and Alasdair’s story widely available again in the new year.
I’ll tell you more about this project and give you links as soon as I can!
My books are available to libraries!
Digital editions of my books are available to libraries through Overdrive and Bibliotheca. This includes my new releases, as well as new editions of many backlist titles. I used to upload directly to Overdrive, but now am using Pronoun (a Macmillan company) to deliver to both of these library portals. Their interface is easier for me, so new releases will appear more quickly on Overdrive than they did before. I also like their version control better.
Print editions of my books are available to libraries through Ingrams. Some of my books are also available in hard cover editions from Ingrams. You can find them on the Collectors’ Editions page here on the site.
My audiobooks are available to libraries through Overdrive and Blackstone Library. Blackstone makes physical cd’s of my audiobooks for libraries, as well as offering digital download licensing.
Here’s more information about the Bestselling Romance promotion hosted by iBooks and BookBub.
The included titles are established bestsellers and are on sale this weekend. The promotion is for US, UK, Canada and Australia.
Of course, you already know that The Last Highlander is included at 99 cents. It’s also featured on the paranormal section of the landing page. 🙂
