Kindle Unlimited Update

This summer, I put some books into KDP Select, which means you can read them free if you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber. This was an experiment – I think KU skews to new content not backlist, and also to frequent publicataion. My suspicions have been proven right this summer, at least for my books. As a result, these titles will be going back into wide distribution at the end of their 90 day term in KU and I wanted to give you fair warning of the change.

The Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke
The first three books in the Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances are currently in KU, but will finish their term September 1 and go wide again. This will make them available at all portals in time for the publication of the fourth and final book in the series, Under the Mistletoe.

Coven of Mercy, a short story and vampire romance by Deborah Cooke An Elegy for Melusine: A Medieval Fairy Tale by Claire Delacroix Beguiled, a collection of short stories and novellas by Claire Delacroix and Deborah Cooke

Coven of Mercy and An Elegy for Melusine will also finish their term in KU on September 1 and go wide. This will make them available at all portals before Dragon’s Kiss is published, which is good since they are connected to the DragonFate Novels. I’ll also republish the collection Beguiled (which includes both of those stories) at all portals in September.

If you’re a KU subscriber, grab your copies this month!

KDP Select and Dragons

I’ve enrolled several of my paranormal romance series into KDP Select this week, which means you can read them free in Kindle Unlimited.

The Dragonfire series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke in print editions

First up, The Dragonfire Novels. This series is complete and features dragon shifter heroes on a quest to save the earth from evil Slayers – but destined love keeps complicating their mission.

Start the series with Kiss of Fire.

Here’s a link to Wyvern’s Mate at Amazon.com.

And here’s a link to the series page at Amazon.com.

Rebel, #3 of the Prometheus Project of urban fantasy romances by Deborah CookeI’ve also enrolled the Prometheus Project urban fantasy romance series, although there’s a bit of an issue with Fallen that Amazon is straightening out.

My Claire Delacroix time travel romances are currently enrolled in KDP Select.

You can read Coven of Mercy and An Elegy for Melusine free in KU right now.

And finally, my Secret Heart Ink series is also enrolled in KDP Select, although it’s just a teensy tiny heart tattoo that might have magical powers in that contemporary romance series.

Happy reading!

PNR in Kindle Unlimited

Fallen, #1 of the Prometheus Project of urban fantasy romances by Deborah CookeI’m going to enroll some titles in Kindle Unlimited, which means that they have to be available exclusively at Amazon. I have a number of promotions booked this month, which will influence both the timing of series going into KU and (frankly) how many series go into the program.

I’ve decided that the Dragonfire Novels, the Dragons of Incendium and the Prometheus Project will definitely be enrolled, probably the first week of July.

Wyvern's Mate, book #1 in the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeIt’s the paranormal and fantasy work that’s on the move. I plan to enroll my time travels in KU in July as well. I’m picking away at the unpublishing so you’ll see books disappearing from the various portals. Incendium, for example, is already unpublished at Nook and GooglePlay. There are collections in all three series included in a promotion at Kobo that goes through June 30, so they’ll be available there until that’s completed. The time travels are included in a promotion at Kobo that will run June 27 to July 4 so can’t move to KU until after that.

Coven of Mercy, a short story and vampire romance by Deborah CookeBut I’ve already started enrolling titles. The two short works linked to my dragon PNR series – Coven of Mercy and An Elegy for Melusine – are now enrolled in KU.

Beguiled has been unpublished from other portals and is available only at Amazon, because those two shorts are included in it, but that collection is not in KU.

Snowbound, #1 of the Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeSecret Heart Ink is also enrolled in KU now, and I’ve dropped the prices on all five of these books to 99cents, too.

I’m still thinking about my historical romances. We’ll see how this month’s sales go first.

If you’re missing any of these titles in your collection and prefer to shop at other portals than Amazon, this is a good chance to grab those books.

The Plan for One Knight Enchanted

One Knight Enchanted, book #1 of the Sayerne series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix

One Knight Enchanted, book #1 of my new Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances, will be published January 9 at Amazon.

The publication of this book is where marketing plans from 2017 collide with marketing plans for 2018. 🙂 Right now, One Knight Enchanted is set to go into Kindle Unlimited immediately, which was last year’s plan for historical romances. A number of you have contacted me, though, saying that you’d like to buy it at a portal other than Amazon. And my 2018 plan involves making my books available to you first through my online store, which can’t happen when a book is in Kindle Unlimited (because those books have to be available exclusively at Amazon.)

But I have a solution! On January 9, I’ll have the option to remove the book from Kindle Unlimited. I’m going to do that. I’ve also made it available to you today through my online store (as well as at Amazon) at the same price as Amazon. (Those are the rules). The delivery of sales from the online store will be handled by Book Funnel, so that you can be sure to get Rolfe and Annelise’s story onto your device of choice. You’ll have two weeks to buy the book in my online store.

Pre-order eBook for January 9 delivery:
• Amazon

• Buy eBook directly from Claire (Available January 2 – 15)

• Order a signed Print Edition from Claire.

On January 16, One Knight Enchanted will be enrolled in Kindle Unlimited and be available only at Amazon.

This means that these six books and the two boxed sets are available exclusively at Amazon in their digital editions. If you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, you’ll be able to read them for free!

The links on the titles will take you to the Amazon.com store.

More Kindle Unlimited

My experiment with Kindle Unlimited is going pretty well, so I’ll be moving more titles into that program on or around January 1. I’ll have to start republishing them at the end of this week at other portals, so if you shop at other portals, this is last call.

Romance Ever After

Every hero has a heart, every heroine a fiery spirit, and every story a soul that bleeds passion. Indulge in this limited-edition collection with some of the top authors in their genre.

This bundle includes:

My Girl by Debra Holland – (NEW STORY) When a logging accident kills his friend and Felicity Woodbury’s fiancé, Lars Aagaard steps in to lend his support.

The Iron Knight by Kathryn Le Veque – When hardened knight Lucien de Russe saves the life of widow Sophina de Gournay, their wonderful chance meeting starts a chain of events that could destroy them both.

The Rogue by Claire Delacroix – Ysabella knows better than to trust her charming husband—even when he insists he is being hunted. When Merlyn is killed, Ysabella is again Lady of Ravensmuir, where the truth must be hidden. Is Merlyn dead? If so, who loves her so sweetly in the night? If not, what is that wicked rogue’s scheme?

Wicked at Heart by Danelle Harmon – A Beauty-and-the-Beast tale of love and redemption between a dark and brooding marquess and the woman who is determined to heal his tortured heart.

Highland Hunger by Eliza Knight – Ceana can’t stand the arrogant Highlander she’s up against in the war games, and yet she can’t walk away. Macrath wants nothing more than to be rid of the troublesome need to protect the warrior lass. What starts out as a race to survive turns into passion to endure together.

Lady in Waiting by Denise Domning – Christopher Hollier will do anything to reclaim the title of Lord Graistan for his invalid brother. Maid-of-honor to the Virgin Queen, Anne Blanchemain hides a dangerous secret, one that sweeps them into events that might ultimately cost them their lives, and their love.

My Lady’s Treasure by Catherine Kean – Lady Faye Rivellaux is desperate to save a kidnapped child. Former crusading knight Brant Meslarches seeks redemption from his past. Forming an uneasy alliance, they search for lost riches and find treasure worth more than gold.

A Knight to Call My Own by Sherry Ewing – Lynet of Clan MacLaren knows how it feels to love someone and not have that love returned. Ian MacGillivray has returned to Berwyck in search of a bride. Who will claim the fair Lynet? The price will be high to ensure her safety and even higher to win her love.

The Seventh Son by Ashley York – The sixth son bears a curse as certain as the seventh bears a blessing. When Tadhg MacNaughton’s betrothed is ripped from his arms and married to another, he believes the legend is true. Is the warrior’s love for the Irish beauty already doomed or does fate have something else planned?

Add this bundle to your library to savor again and again!

More Kindle Unlimited

My experiment with Kindle Unlimited is going very well, so I’m adding some more content to the program.

This month, my Jewels of Kinfairlie series is also moving into KU. This includes The Beauty Bride, The Rose Red Bride, The Snow White Bride, The Ballad of Rosamunde, and the Jewels of Kinfairlie Boxed Set.

The Beauty Bride, first book in the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixStart the series with The Beauty Bride and meet the family at Kinfairlie.

More cherished than gold are the Jewels of Kinfairlie, and only the worthiest may fight for their love…The Laird of Kinfairlie has unmarried sisters, each a gem in her own right. And he has no choice but to see them all wed in haste.

Lady Madeline’s heart is not for sale…especially not to a notorious outlaw like Rhys FitzHenry. Yet Madeline’s hand has been sold, to none other than this battle-weary warrior with a price on his head. A more dutiful maiden might cede to the Laird’s command and meekly accept her fate, but Madeline has never been obedient. She decides to run away, though she never dreams that Rhys will pursue her.

She does not expect this taciturn man to woo her with fanciful stories, much less that each of his enthralling tales will reveal a scar upon his shielded soul. She never imagines that a man like Rhys could imperil her own heart while revealing so little of his own feelings. When Rhys’ past threatens his future, Madeline takes a leap of faith. She dares to believe him innocent—and risks her own life to pursue a passion more priceless than the rarest gem.

“A lyrical medieval-era romance!”
