TRW’s Northern Hearts Conference

Northern Hearts conference, hosted by Toronto Romance Writers, September 2019I’ll be attending the Northern Hearts conference hosted by Toronto Romance Writers, which will be held at the North York Novotel from September 20 – 21, 2019.

There’s a booksigning on Friday night to launch the conference and I’ll be signing there.

I’ll also be teaching a workshop on Saturday (time TBD) called “Ten Reasons Why Traditionally-Published Authors Stumble When They Go Indie.”

I hope to see you there!

Schedule Updates

Some Like It Hot, book #7 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeI’ve been moving my schedule around to accommodate the new publication date of Bad Case of Loving You. I also want to start some new projects.

One of the results of this reorganization is that Some Like It Hot has been moved to a February 2020 publication date. That will take my contemporary romance publication schedule back to two titles a year. (Theo and Lyssa messed me up, but in 2020 we’ll be on track again.)

Under the Mistletoe, a contemporary Christmas romance and #4 in the Secret Heart Ink series by Deborah CookeThe contemporary romance after that (summer 2020 pub date) will be a Coxwell book. I also want to set some romances at Flatiron Five West, and will be attending RWA National in San Francisco in July 2020 with the plan of doing some research there.

I’m planning to finish up Under the Mistletoe and publish it this fall, so it will be my 2019 holiday romance read. First, Theo and Lyssa, then Chynna.

Unicorn Bride, a medieval romance by Claire Delacroix, 2019 new editionAs for Claire’s books, there will be One Knight’s Return this month, which has proven to be another one of those little republication projects that ended up taking a huge amount of time. (The second half of the book is all new and the first half has significant changes. It would have been faster to just write a new book!) Then there will be a republication of Unicorn Bride in August, which really will be a republication and very close to the original.

That’s where we stand!

New Edition of Unicorn Bride Coming Soon

Unicorn Bride, a medieval romance by Claire Delacroix, in its original mass market editionUnicorn Bride was the second book I sold to Harlequin Historicals and it was originally published in June 1994. The cover on the right is the original mass market edition, with a cover painted by Judy York. I loved this book, which is set in what is now southern France, and was very pleased to discover that I still love it just as much as I did almost thirty years ago.

So, I’m very excited to be preparing this book for republication in a new edition. There are a few changes, but no so many that I think this version merits a new title. It’ll be published in August, and is available for pre-order now. The new cover is by Dar Albert and I love it to pieces.


Unicorn Bride, a medieval romance by Claire DelacroixFor generations, legend had stalked the battlements of the fortress Montsalvat. And now Alienor de Perpignan found herself promised in marriage to the man at the heart of the oft-whispered tales: Dagobert, Count de Pereille. A near-mythic being rumored to be a beast by day – and more than a man by night.

That Alienor was his true-destined bride, Dagobert de Pereille had no doubt. Indeed, with her exotic beauty and blade-bright spirit, she could be none other. But could he who bore the mark – and the curse – of ancient kings ever trust her enough to open his heart?

Translations

The Beauty Bride, first book in the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixI’ve embarked on a new adventure these past couple of weeks – I’ll be having translations done of some of my books. This will be a huge job, since each translation will take several months. I’m starting with some Delacroix titles until I get the hang of this process.

First up will be the Jewels of Kinfairlie. I’ve contracted for an Italian edition of The Beauty Bride. There was a Mondadori edition before, but it was available only in print. This will be a new translation and it will be available in ebook as well as print. I hope it will be available by the fall. If all goes well, that translator and I will continue on to The Rose Red Bride.

I’ve also signed a contract for a Portuguese translation of The Beauty Bride for the Brazilian market. It should be available by the end of the year.

There’s a new page on the Delacroix site for Translations, and each language will have its own page there. Here’s the Italian one – the Portuguese one is in the works. Each language will also have its own New Release newsletter, in that language.

One Knight’s Return Pre-Order

One Knight's Return, #2 of the Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixOne Knight’s Return will be published May 21.

This is the second book in my Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances. Like One Knight Enchanted, it’s set in medieval Burgundy in an area we’d now call French Switzerland. You can see some pictures of the area on the Pinterest page for the series.

This is also the second of the books I originally published with Harlequin Historicals that I’ve revised for republication. One Knight Enchanted had new scenes and changes to the ending, as well as minor changes throughout from the original book, Enchanted. One Knight’s Return came out of My Lady’s Champion, but has so many changes in the first half that the second half is all new.

The rest of the books in this series will be all new works. You can meet the knights – each of whom will have his own book – in this excerpt from the prologue of One Knight Enchanted.

Moving Dates

Bad Case of Loving You, book #6 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeThis year, I’m determined to get ahead of my publication schedule, so that books are done and loaded well in advance of publication. This will make it easier for me to plan and also to promote those books. This means I need to delay publication on some things. In future, I won’t tell you what I’m working on until it’s loaded for pre-order (and done). So, we’re in a little transition phase.

First up, the publication date for Bad Case of Loving You moved to April 16.

Next, One Knight’s Return‘s publication date moved to May 21.

Third, Some Like It Hot moved the fall – it now has an October 29 publication date. At this point, I’m thinking it will be the last Flatiron Five book, but we’ll see.

What goes in the gaps?

Under the Mistletoe, a contemporary Christmas romance and #4 in the Secret Heart Ink series by Deborah CookeUnder the Mistletoe will be a September release. It makes more sense to publish a Christmas book in the fall than in the spring, after all. I’ll give you the links once it’s loaded at the portals. Chynna’s story will be the last Secret Heart Ink book

Here Be Dragons will be a July release, one way or the other. Again, I’ll give you the links once it’s loaded at the portals.

What comes after that? I’ll tell you once the links are live! I have so many covers that I’ve already commissioned, but might do something entirely new.

Amazon Link for Bad Case of Loving You

Under the Mistletoe, a contemporary Christmas romance and #4 in the Secret Heart Ink series by Deborah CookeTheo and Lyssa’s book will be off to editing this week, which is a wonderful thing. These two have given me a tussle, but I love their book. (Sometimes the fighters are the best stories.) I’ve moving out the publication date to April 19 to give us all a bit more breathing room. Rushing edits is never a good idea. This means also that I’ve put up a pre-order at Amazon. Under the Mistletoe is almost done, too, and now that I know how it intersects with Theo’s story, I’ll be finishing it up this month, too. After it goes to my editor and I confirm her schedule, I’ll put up the pre-orders for it.

So, here are the pre-order links for Theo and Lyssa – as usual, it’ll be available at GooglePlay on the on sale date:

Bad Case of Loving You, book #5 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Theo knows what’s possible…
Because he’s learned the hard way what’s not. The internationally successful supermodel known as Angel stole his heart forever when she was shy Lyssa Monroe. There’s never been another woman who could compete—he even loved Lyssa enough to walk away when she told him they had to part. When he sees her at F5, he’s resolved to make one glimpse of her sustain him for another ten years. When she offers him one night together, Theo can’t say no—even though he knows a taste will only tempt him to hope for more all over again.

Lyssa has tasted forbidden fruit…
And she can’t forget it, no matter how hard she tries. Theo’s love is a touchstone for all that is pure and good in the chaos her life has become. When their gazes meet across the dance floor at F5, everything is simple for once and only one choice is possible. The secrets she keeps from him could destroy everything, but surely she can keep them hidden for just one night. How much will she sacrifice to defend the past—and how far will Theo go to discover the truth?
