Fallen

Fallen, an urban fantasy romance by Claire Delacroix

Fallen, the first of my Prometheus Project series of urban fantasy romances (set in a dystopian future and featuring fallen angel heroes) has gone off to be formatted. Phew! it’s also formatted for print now, and the print edition is waiting on its cover.

Having these books re-edited has proven to be quite the adventure. My editor found far more than I anticipated, so we’ve been working on the entire trilogy at once. On the upside, though, I’m much happier with the book. There have been some changes and corrections, plus there’s bonus content in this edition. I should be able to give you buy links for Fallen soon.

And tomorrow, I’ll work on finalizing Guardian!

Amazon MatchBook

Amazon has announced a new program, which they’ll be rolling out in the next few weeks (according to their announcement to authors). I think it’s pretty cool, and since it may impact your buying decisions, I thought I’d tell you about it.

MatchBook allows authors and publishers to enroll books in a matching program. Here’s how it works: if you have bought a print edition of a book and if that book is enrolled in the program, you’ll be able to buy the digital edition of that same book at a discounted price. (Of course, you’ll also have to have bought the print book new from Amazon for this offer to work.) The digital edition must be at least half price for consumers who qualify.

So, this means that all of you who have libraries of mass market romances, just for example, will likely be able to replace many of them in digital editions at a discounted price. It doesn’t matter if you bought the mass market original, the trade paperback or book club original, or the new trade paperback edition – any of them will qualify you for the discounted digital edition, if the author/publisher has enrolled that book in the program.

I’ve set all of the titles under my control to be 99 cents for readers who have bought them new from Amazon. I’ll continue to do that in future, sooooooo – if you intend to buy in both print and digital, you might want to buy the print edition first, just so you get the discount.

MatchBook was just announced and it’s not clear exactly when it will go live for consumers. The announcement said ‘weeks’, so I’d expect it to be rolled out soon. It looks to me like an inducement for those readers who haven’t yet bought an e-reader to make the switch, maybe to be advertised just in time for holiday shopping.

We’ll see how it shakes out, but now you know!

 

The Dragon Legion Collection – Digital Edition

The Dragon Legion Collection, including all three Dragon Legion novellas and #9 in the Dragonfire series of paranormal romances, by Deborah CookeThe Dragon Legion Collection is now available in a digital edition, as well as a trade paperback edition. All three of the Dragon Legion novellas are included, and this volume is Dragonfire #9.

They will sacrifice anything to regain the loves they’ve lost…

When the Dragon Legion take custody of the darkfire crystal, Drake and his fellow dragon shifters fear that the sorcery trapped in the stone is bent on destroying them. In Kiss of Danger, Alexander defends his wife and son from a vicious killer who has followed him through time. In Kiss of Darkness, Damien enters the realm of the dead to fix an old mistake, but loses his shifting abilities. In Kiss of Destiny, Thad believes he can secure the future of all the dragon shifters known as the Pyr, if only he can win the heart of the elusive woman who sparks his firestorm. Will the darkfire demand all they have to give, or is the unpredictable magic giving these dragon warriors a second chance?

This collection contains all three Dragon Legion novellas, as well as an excerpt from Serpent’s Kiss (the next Dragonfire novel), a cast of characters and a Dragonfire glossary.
