Visit the Dragons of Incendium website to learn more about my dragon shifter princesses from space.
From July 15 through August 15, I’m participating in a 99¢ & Free PNR, fantasy and urban fantasy promotion. What a great way to find a new read! You’ll find both Kiss of Fire and Wyvern’s Mate included in the books on the landing page as well as over 100 other titles!
Kiss of Fire and Wyvern’s Mate are both discounted to 99¢. They’re enrolled in KDP Select until July 22, and will republished at all portals after that, also at the 99¢ price point.
From today through May 24, the Dragonfire Quest boxed set – including the first three full-length Dragonfire novels – is discounted from $9.99US to just 99¢!
Dragonfire Quest is the first digital bundle in The Dragonfire Novels: The Complete Series and includes the three books that launch the Dragon’s Tail Wars between the Pyr, dragon shifters pledged to defend the treasures of the earth, and the evil Slayers, dragon shifters bent on destroying both the Pyr and the humans they protect.
In Kiss of Fire, dragon shifter Quinn Tyrrell is caught between the firestorm with his destined mate, Sara Keenan, and his hereditary responsibilities as the Smith of the Pyr. But Quinn has learned to be skeptical of his fellow dragon shifters and it’s only when the evil Slayers target Sara that he realizes he needs the help of his own kind. Can pragmatic Sara be persuaded to believe that she’s his destined mate and the foretold Seer of the Pyr? Can Quinn win Sara’s heart before it’s too late for them, their firestorm, and the Pyr?
In Kiss of Fury, Donovan Shea, the dragon shifter assigned to defend scientist Alex Madison from the Slayers who have killed her partner, is surprised by the spark of his own firestorm. Donovan has no interest in commitment, especially one who has nightmares about dragons. All the same, there’s something special about Alex, something that feeds a heat in Donovan beyond that of the firestorm. Can they work together to save her invention, the Green Machine, without surrendering to the firestorm’s demand? If they embrace the promise of a future together, will the Slayers attack Alex again?
In Kiss of Fate, Erik Sorensson, leader of the Pyr, has to confront past failures when he has a second chance at true love. Outspoken and independent Eileen Grosvenor isn’t what Erik expects in a mate, but he admires her creativity and her resilience. Eileen has her doubts about trusting a dragon shifter, but when she’s targeted by Slayers for the treasure she’s claimed, having a good dragon on her side sounds like a plan. Can Erik and Eileen learn to work together to triumph in time—over Slayers, the wounds of the past, and even their own assumptions?
I’m also moving the Dragons of Incendium into KU.
The backlist books should be enrolled in early May. (It takes a few weeks for the ebooks to be taken down from all the portals.) I’ll let you know when they’re in!

Until about two years ago, I was creating two editions of each of my paperbacks. One was published through Createspace (an Amazon company) and made available to Amazon stores. The other was published through Ingrams and made available everywhere else. The two editions were the same, except that there were slight differences in the width of the cover spine, probably because the two print-on-demand outlets use different paper for the interior pages. (At one point, I also created editions at Nook of some books for B&N stores, which also have slightly different spine widths, but don’t see enough sales on those editions to justify paying the designer to tweak the spine, so I’ve stopped doing them.)
About two years ago, Amazon began merging Createspace (the POD publishing platform) into KDP (the ebook publishing platform) which made a lot of sense. Many indie books are available in both POD and ebook, and creating both through the same portal, with the same metadata, and reporting sales for both in the same place was a good plan IMO. Also the Createspace interface was older. The KDP interface was being updated, so the print update was rolled into that. Authors could migrate their titles from Createspace to KDP. There were some (inevitable, in such a big transition) hiccups, but ultimately, Createspace was closed to new content.
Since then, I chose to create my print-on-demand editions only at Ingrams, and have them distributed everywhere. Another variable was that I’ve been creating mass market sized paperbacks and during the initial transition, KDP didn’t support this format although Createspace had.
Recently, writer friends have shared that their Ingrams-print edition is showing a delayed delivery on Amazon – of about 60 days. Also, the Ingrams editions aren’t eligible for free shipping through Amazon Prime, which is a big deterrent to Amazon Prime shoppers. So, this week, I added KDP print editions for the books that didn’t have them before, just for the Amazon stores. They’re all going live now, and as they do, the Amazon edition will replace the Ingrams edition on the same link in the Amazon store. (This is because they have the same ISBN.)
So, if you’re an Amazon Prime customer and you’ve been holding off on buying print copies of these titles for your keeper shelf, now’s the time!
At the end of September, the Dragonfire Novels came out of KDP Select, which means that they’re available at all portals again (not just Amazon). I’ve also made Kiss of Fire a free series starter at all portals. This is a great time to meet the Pyr!
The Prometheus Project has also come out of KDP Select, so those four titles are also available at all portals again. Phew.
The Dragons of Incendium have remained in KDP Select for another term, so if you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, you can read about those dragon shifter princesses from space free.
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.
The Dragons of Incendium series featured dragon shifter princesses from space and the men bold enough to love them.
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.
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.
