Just One Fake Date on the Charts

On Saturday, the first BookBub Featured Deal for Just One Fake Date ran and the results were very satisfying. 🙂 This book hadn’t had a promotion before, and it is currently 99cents at all portals. It’s the new first book in the Flatiron Five Fitness series.

I wasn’t really on top of this on Sunday morning, but grabbed these screen shots later in the day. It’s entirely possible (and likely) that the rankings were higher earlier in the day.

By the time I looked at Amazon, Tyler and Shannyn’s book was at #129 overall in the store, #4 in sports romance and #15 in romantic comedy.

At Barnes & Noble, Just One Fake Date earned a bestseller ribbon (yay!).

It was also #8 overall in the store when I looked (although a reader said she’d seen it at #5 earlier in the day.)

At Apple, Tyler and Shannyn’s story was #14 overall in the store when I looked:

It was also included on a carousel for first-in-series bestsellers at Apple – notice that it’s the first one in the listings that’s a paid read, which is cool.

At KOBO, Just One Fake Date was #1 in sports romance, #4 in contemporary romance and #5 in contemporary women.

Just One Fake Date is still 99 cents at the major portals, so if you don’t have your copy yet, grab it today!

Dragonfire Quest Boxed Set is 99¢!

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, the first Dragonfire digital bundle including Kiss of Fire, Kiss of Fury and Kiss of Fate of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke 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?

Dragonfire Quest, the first Dragonfire digital bundle including Kiss of Fire, Kiss of Fury and Kiss of Fate of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke

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?

BookBub Featured Deal for All's Fair in Love and War by Claire Delacroix April 22, 2020Last week, I had a BookBub featured deal for my boxed set, All’s Fair in Love and War. This bundle of four full-length enemies-to-lovers medieval romances was specially priced at 99 cents, and it jumped up the charts to get an orange bestseller ribbon in the Amazon store:

All's Fair in Love and War boxed set by Claire Delacroix with a #1 bestseller ribborn at Amazon.com on April 22, 2020How exciting is that?!

All’s Fair in Love and War is still priced at 99 cents – until May 1 – so if you haven’t gotten your copy yet, now’s the time. It’s also enrolled in KDP Select, so if you’re a KU subscriber, you can read it free.

All's Fair in Love and War: Four Enemies-to-Lovers Medieval Romances by Claire DelacroixAll’s Fair in Love and War: Four Enemies-to-Lovers Medieval Romances

Be swept away by four thrilling medieval romances by the “Queen of Medieval Romance”, each featuring a defiant lady at odds with a persistent and powerful knight. Sparks fly in these battles of wills, but passion will win the day.

In One Knight’s Return, Melissande is compelled by her overlord to marry a rough knight just home from crusade – the alternative is to surrender her family holding completely. She knows the kind of knight who will hold her heart, and Quinn de Sayerne isn’t it. Quinn, on the other hand, knows what it’s like to risk everything and is determined to make their arranged marriage into a real one—no matter what the cost to his beautiful wife’s pride.

All's Fair in Love and War: Four Enemies-to-Lovers Medieval Romances by Claire DelacroixIn The Scoundrel, Evangeline will do anything to retrieve the relic stolen from the chapel in her family holding, even seduce the thief himself to capture the prize. Gawain has always lived outside the law, a charming rebel protecting his own advantage, but Evangeline’s devotion to Inverfyre makes him question is choices. If he changed his ways, could this beguiling, brilliant, maddening woman come to love him?

In The Rose Red Bride, Erik abducts Vivienne to avenge himself against his wicked brother. Fueled by anger, he expects little of his captive except a son—but Vivienne is precisely the woman to take Erik’s cause once she learns his story. If Vivienne can ensure that Erik’s stolen legacy is regained, will her embittered but honorable husband find room in his heart for her?

In The Warrior’s Prize, Elizabeth challenges Rafael to change his ways, skeptical that the mercenary who nearly cost her brother his life is capable of redemption. But Rafael sees his comrade’s sister as an angel sent to save him, and when he realizes that she’s in peril of being claimed by the Fae king himself, Rafael will pay any price to save the only maiden bold enough to challenge him. But will his all be enough for Elizabeth?

Indulge in four sweeping medieval romances to warm a winter’s night!

Flatiron Five: The First Collection on the Charts!

Flatiron Five: The First Collection, a digital bundle of the first three contemporary romances and romantic comedies in the Flatiron Five series by Deborah Cooke

Yesterday, I had a BookBub Featured Deal for Flatiron Five: The First Collection, a newly released bundle of three contemporary romances. It’s 99 cents now, but will ultimately be $9.99.

A boxed set including the series starter is a great introduction for new readers to a series. Promoting it at a special price (this one is 99 cents until Saturday) is an excellent way to find those new readers, in my experience. There are still three more books in the series available and the series is complete, two more reasons to create and advertise this bundle. And BookBub is the most effective way to promote a sale.

Let’s look at yesterday’s results.

At Amazon, the book rose to #79 paid in the Kindle store as of this morning (it was at #161 by noon yesterday) as well as ranking in the sports and military romance categories. Because this series isn’t in Kindle Unlimited, I didn’t have high hopes for the charts at Amazon. This is a very nice showing – and a lot of units sold at Amazon.

Flatiron Five, the First Collection, a digital bundle of three contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke at #79 overall paid in the Kindle store on January 23, 2020


At Kobo, the bundle was at #2 in Contemporary Romance last night, as well as #1 in Sports Romance.

Flatiron Five, the First Collection, a digital bundle of three contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke at #1 in Sports Romance and #2 in Contemporary Romance in the Kobo store on January 22, 2020


At Nook, the bundle rose to #7 overall paid, and #2 in Romance, a lovely surprise.

Flatiron Five, the First Collection, a digital bundle of three contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke at #7 overall paid in the Nook store on January 22, 2020


I was most excited about the results at Apple. This series sells very well at Apple, so I was hoping to find more readers there. Last night, the F5 bundle was #3 overall in the Apple bookstore, which is fabulous.
Flatiron Five, the First Collection, a digital bundle of three contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke, at #3 overall in the Apple store on January 22, 2020

This morning, it had dropped to #4 overall, but was #2 in the Romance category. (Now I’m wondering if it was #1 in Romance last night. I should have looked!) Flatiron Five, the First Collection, a digital bundle of three contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke, at #2 in Romance in the Apple store on January 23, 2020

I didn’t take a screen shot of it, but Going to the Chapel, the short story in the Flatiron Five series was sitting at #145 paid in the Apple store last night, proof that Apple readers are already continuing with the series.

Flatiron Five: The First Collection, a digital bundle of the first three contemporary romances and romantic comedies in the Flatiron Five series by Deborah CookeOverall, I’m very pleased with the results. 🙂

My BookBub Featured Deal for The Renegade’s Heart

The Renegade's Heart, #1 of the True Love Brides series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixRight now, my medieval romance The Renegade’s Heart is free at all portals. I had a BookBub Featured Deal to promote the sale yesterday and wanted to share my results with you this morning.

The largest number of units always go out the door at Amazon.com, which means the book in question gets the largest bounce up the charts there. The Renegade’s Heart started at #4 in Scottish romance, #1 in Medieval romance, #75 in Romance and #417 overall free in the Kindle store. I’d already promoted it here on the blog and in my newsletter to get it started.

(The Beauty Bride is #8 free in Scottish romance this morning, so if I had a bigger screen, I could have grabbed an image including the next row of that chart.)
The Renegade's Heart, a medieval Scottish romance by Claire Delacroix, at #1 free Medieval Romance in the Kindle store on October 24, 2019

The Highlander's Curse, #2 of the True Love Brides series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixThe Highlander’s Curse, book two in the same series, is also on sale – it’s discounted to 99cents.

As a result of the visibility for The Renegade’s Heart, The Highlander’s Curse also moved up the charts yesterday.

This morning at Amazon.com, it’s sitting at #22 in Scottish romance and #11 in Medieval romance on the paid charts.
The Highlander's Curse, a medieval Scottish romance by Claire Delacroix, at #11 in medieval romance and #22 in Scottish romance in the Kindle store on October 24, 2019Meanwhile, over at Apple, Murdoch and Isabella’s book is also doing well. The Renegade’s Heart is #12 overall free in the Apple store this morning. You can see that historical romance doesn’t tend to rank as well at Apple as at Amazon.
The Renegade's Heart, a medieval Scottish romance by Claire Delacroix, at #12 free in the Apple store on October 24, 2019And The Renegade’s Heart is #4 free in Romance in the Apple store this morning, which is a very nice showing.
