Character Interview at Eniko’s Blog

Kiss of Fate, #3 in the Dragonfire series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeEniko is a blogger I met on Facebook originally, then met in person at Romancing the Capital last month. She wanted to interview one of the Pyr for her blog, and chose Erik from Kiss of Fate for this feature. Erik’s interview is live today on her blog, and there’s a draw for a signed mass market copy of Erik’s book. All you have to do is comment on the interview for a chance to win.

Character Couch & Contest

Today, we’re having a contest. I’ve been invited to have one of my Dragonfire couples visit Tracy Tappan’s Character Couch. Tracy is a trained therapist and a romance author – for this blog, she writes a scene in which her character, Regan, does a therapy session with a different fictional couple each month. It’s a chance to learn more about the characters, and maybe see some new sides of the hero and heroine. Tracy’s blog post will run in July, but we need your help to choose which Dragonfire book’s characters are featured.

Who do you want to learn more about? Any one of the Dragonfire books are eligible.

To help in the decision and enter the contest, you just need to vote for your choice of lucky couple, and when you do, you’ll be eligible to win a Serpent’s Kiss prize package – that’s a Serpent’s Kiss tote bag, a signed trade paperback copy of Serpent’s Kiss, Dragonfire temporary tattoos and a pair of Dragonfire earrings in Thorolf’s colors.

Mid May Reader Prize for Serpent's Kiss by Deborah Cooke

All you have to do is visit Tracy’s website, The Character Couch, choose the Suggest a Book button – or go directly to Suggest a Book here – and nominate your Dragonfire book of choice. It would be great for you to include what you think they need to talk about. The choices are:

Kiss of Fire, first of the Dragonfire series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeSome suggestions for this book might be: Does Quinn need to talk about the loss of his parents? His brothers? Elizabeth? His feelings about the Pyr? What about Sara? Has she dealt with the loss of her parents? Her change of job? The legacy of her Aunt Magda? You get the idea. 🙂

Quiet on the Blog Front

I apologize to all of you for being quiet lately. Thorolf has been filling my calendar in more ways than one, and it’s been a crazy few weeks.

I’ve still got a To Do list, but here’s an update for you on what’s in the works:

1/ New Swag.
It’s finally on its way! I’ll tell you more on Monday and hope to show you by the end of next week. The best things are worth waiting for, right?

2/ April Newsletter.
I’ll be sending it out next week, so if you haven’t subscribed, please do. (Look for the link in the right sidebar.)

3/ New Website Pages.
After compiling it all for the umpteenth time, I’ve decided to share two more Pyr cheatsheets with you, here on the site. One will be the children of the Pyr, and one will be an astrological page about the Dragon’s Tail.

btw, Thorolf’s eclipse is next week, a total lunar eclipse on April 15. I have a post queued up for that day about it, but if you’re in the vicinity of Bangkok, look out for dragons!

4/ New Schedule.
I’m astonished by how much there is to do before a book’s publication, how much time it all takes, and how much the process is complicated by having pre-orders available. (It’s possible that I’m also a relentless optimist!) The schedule for the rest of my year will have to be tweaked to leave more time between completing the book manuscript and making it available for sale. And yes, this is yet another sign that indie publishing is becoming more like traditional publishing. I don’t need a year to get things done, which is the traditional model, but clearly, I do need more than 2 months. Live and learn.

5/ New Book.
I’m sure you haven’t forgotten that part! April 30 is T’s day.
