Wyvern’s Mate Promotion

Wyvern's Mate, book #1 in the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeOn Friday, I had a BookBub ad for Wyvern’s Mate at its 99 cent promotional price. So, on Saturday—as usual—I tabulated the first day’s results. This is the first promotion for my Dragons of Incendium series, so the results were particularly interesting to me.

At Amazon, Drakina and Troy’s book rose to #436 overall paid in the Kindle store, which is pretty cool. It was #5 on the Science Fiction Romance list, #9 on the Kindle Science Fiction Romance list, and #19 on the Werewolves and Shifters PNR list.

Let’s look at what else was on those lists. Here’s the Science Fiction Romance list:Wyvern's Mate on the Science Fiction Romance list at Amazon.com on January 7, 2017

What’s interesting to me is that Wyvern’s Mate is the only book that isn’t enrolled in Kindle Unlimited. The other interesting thing is the difference in the books—Ivoth features dragon shifters in space, so I have something in common with that book, while Bella Forrest’s series is tagged as YA. #6 is a thriller, so this list is more of a mixed bag than I might have expected.

Here are the bestsellers in Science Fiction romance, the Kindle list. (And no, I don’t understand the difference between the two lists, but there is a difference since different books appear on this second one.) Wyvern's Mate on the Bestseller list in Kindle Science Fiction romance on January 7, 2017

Again, the majority of the books are enrolled in KU – it’s just me and Nora on our own little non-KU team, which isn’t bad company at all! Riddle’s books appear to be more action/adventure, and Nora’s book has a wolf-shifter heroine. What you can’t see here is that #10 is Outlander. Again, more of a  mixed bag than I’d expected.

My screen isn’t big enough to capture the entire list for Werewolves and Shifters, but the same pattern is shown there. It’s me and Nora and Ilona Andrews who are non-KU, and those are the only three books that aren’t in KU out of the top 20. This list looks how I expected—lots of man-chest, familiar author names in PNR and SFR, titles with “mate”, vampires, bear-shifters, wolf-shifters and dragon-shifter protagonists, just mostly KU.

And away to the other portals. At B&N, Wyvern’s Mate was #67 overall in the Nook store.

It was #19 on the Romance bestseller list:

And #2 on the Paranormal Romance bestseller list. You can see that the other books making the list are ones you might expect, from authors you might expect. (Hi Eve!)

Wyvern’s Mate was also #4 on the Science Fiction and Fantasy bestseller list at Nook.

Let’s visit KOBO next. Wyvern’s Mate was #4 in Paranormal romance, #5 in Science Fiction romance and #24 in Contemporary romance. (Okay, that last one surprised me.)

Hello again, Eve. 🙂

Wyvern's Mate on the top 100 bestselling romance list at Apple on January 7, 2017And away we go to Apple, for our last stop. Wyvern’s Mate was #85 on the Top 100 Bestselling Romance list at Apple, which makes me pretty happy. Contemporary romance pretty much owns that list and I don’t think there are subordinate lists specific to various sub-genres, so being on that list was pretty cool.

So, there’s my summary of first-day results. Some interesting details there, and things to think about. THANK YOU to everyone who grabbed a copy of Wyvern’s Mate during the sale. It’s still 99 cents, so you have time to pick up a copy if you haven’t done so yet.

Wyvern’s Mate Just 99 cents

Wyvern’s Mate, book #1 in my Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances is on sale for just 99 cents!

Once, in the Kingdom of Incendium, there were twelve princesses of the realm, each a dragon shifter. Each fiery and passionate. Each possessed of an appetite for pleasure that only her destined mate can satisfy. Twelve men are expected in Incendium, each with special powers of his own, each with the gift to claim one dragon princess’s heart forever.

Wyvern's Mate, book #1 of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeTroy will do whatever is necessary to earn his freedom from solitary confinement on the penal colony of Xanto, even assassinate a princess of Incendium. Being a MindBender, he has a serious advantage as a predator and thinks the princess in question doesn’t have a chance. Only one of them can survive and Troy knows who it will be—until he meets Drakina.

Royal dragon shifter Drakina has a quest of her own, to seduce her destined mate and conceive the crown prince of Incendium. Her father will free her from all other responsibilities if she completes this one task. Drakina craves her independence enough to seduce the unattractive Terran who is the Carrier of the Seed. She’s sure it will be a quick seduction—until she meets Troy.

Worlds collide when Troy and Drakina meet, and passion flares. The attraction is so powerful that they both choose to put their goals aside for one night of passion together. When their respective secrets are revealed, will the truth turn one against the other? Or will destiny allow this star-crossed pair to save each other and their unborn son?

Today’s the day! My new contemporary romance series, Flatiron Five, launches today with Simply Irresistible.

Once upon a recession, five friends banded together to find success. Ten years later, their exclusive fitness club, Flatiron Five, is the hottest destination in Manhattan. People flock to F5 to get fit, to get lucky, and even, to fall in love. The founding partners have been immune to F5’s spell—at least, so far…

Simply Irresistible, a contemporary romance by Deborah Cooke and first in the Flatiron Five series.Tyler McKay has had enough…

Going to his fourth sister’s wedding without a date will only encourage his female relations to “help” him find romance. Ty’s ready to wait for Ms. Right and is busy enough as the finance guy for F5. When he learns that the cute woman who works in his building is in the same predicament, he’s sure that fake dates are the perfect solution. She agrees, but Ty soon realizes that there’s far more to Amy than meets the eye. When she enrolls in a bondage class at F5, he finds himself taking a disguise as dangerous Matteo to keep her safe. How far will he go to win the heart of a woman he finds…simply irresistible?

Amy Thornton can’t get enough…

Amy can’t resist another romance about a hot hero and the woman who steals his heart away with naughty games. When she decides to write her own book, she knows she needs to do research. Her fake date, Tyler, is gorgeous but too nice to play naughty games—unlike Matteo, Amy’s mysterious personal instructor at F5, who plays them so well.

Come meet Merlyn and Ysabella!

The Rogue, book #1 of the Rogues of Ravensmuir trilogy of Scottish medieval romances by Claire DelacroixDear Reader:

Seductive and mysterious, Merlyn was the laird of Ravensmuir — never had a man so stirred my body and soul. I gave myself to him — willingly, trustingly, passionately — and we soon wed. Then a horrible revelation emerged, shattering my innocence and my marriage…

Five years later, Merlyn returned to my doorstep, desperate for my help. The scoundrel swore he was haunted by memories of me, that a treasure locked in Ravensmuir could clear his name. Yet I could not surrender to his will again. Now he is said to be murdered and Ravensmuir has fallen into my hands.

But even as I cross the threshold of this cursed keep, I hear his whisper in the darkness, feel his caress in the night, and I know that Merlyn has told me but part of his tale. Should I do as is right and expose his lair? Or dare I trust my alluring but deceptive spouse – the rogue who destroyed my heart?

— Ysabella
