January New Releases

Did you miss any of my new releases in January?

This year, January was about translations of my medieval romances.

The Crusader's Bride, book one of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, Spanish edition

This first book was actually published at the very end of December – The Crusader’s Bride is now available in a Spanish edition. La novia del caballero de las Cruzadas is the translated title. It was published through Babelcube, so has been taking a while to get to the various portals. I published the ebook and a trade paperback edition, too.

You can learn more about Gaston and Ysmaine’s story in Spanish on my Delacroix website, right here.

The Crusader's Heart, book two of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, Spanish edition

The second title published in January was the second Spanish translation in the Champions of St. Euphemia series. Wulfe’s book is called El corazón del caballero de las Cruzadas in Spanish, and the series is called Los campeones de Santa Eufemia.

Los Campeones de Santa Eufemia sigue a un grupo de caballeros a quienes se les ha confiado un tesoro en Jerusalén que ellos deben entregar de manera segura a París.  En el camino encuentran aventuras y peligros, además de romance. 

The translator will be finishing the series, so I’ve set up pre-orders for the other books. You can find them on my Delacroix website, too.

The rose Red Bride, book two of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, German edition

I also published a new German translation in January, of The Rose Red Bride, book two of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series. Die rosenrote Braut has been enrolled in Kindle Unlimited, so is available exclusively at Amazon through April.

Madeline’s book is also available in German, but it’s in wide distribution. You can learn more about Die schöne Braut on my Delacroix website.

I have more translations coming in February, including some contemporary romances, but don’t have all the covers prepared yet. Stay tuned!

New Editions of Flatiron Five Tattoo

The updated editions of Flatiron Five Tattoo (previously called Secret Heart Ink) have now been published at all portals.

The new editions have the beautiful new covers and revised titles shown below.

Just One Snowbound Night, book one of the Flatiron Five Tattoo series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke Just One Vacation Night, book two of the Flatiron Five Tattoo series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke
Just One Unforgettable Night, book three of the Flatiron Five Tattoo series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke Just One Christmas Night, book four of the Flatiron Five Tattoo series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

The contents are the same as the original versions, but I added a reader letter and introduction to Just One Snowbound Night. If you bought the books in their earlier editions, you should be able to download the new edition as an update. It will over-write the old edition, so you have to choose whether to have the old one or the new one.

At Kindle, it’s a little more complicated as they don’t always push out updates. I’ve asked them to do as much with this one – just as they said they would with Flatiron Five Fitness – but you may have to request it at your end, as well.

Next week, I’ll update the F5F Character list.

The Flatiron Five Boxed Set Update

Flatiron Five: The First Collection, a digital bundle of the first three contemporary romances and romantic comedies in the Flatiron Five series by Deborah CookeA reader contacted me last week to ask about an update to the Flatiron Five Boxed Set. This was a really good question and I had to think about it a bit.

The boxed set as originally published included Simply Irresistible, Addicted to Love and In the Midnight Hour. The issue is that there’s a new series starter, and that Just One Fake Date, while it’s Tyler’s story, is a different story than Simply Irresistible. Currently, the boxed set is unavailable – if you have it on your e-reader, the cover is at right. There’s no page for it on the website anymore, because it’s no longer for sale.

What I’ve decided to do is update the boxed set with Just One Fake Date and the two updated stories, Just One More Time and Just One Night Together. If you own the boxed set pictured at right, you’ll be able to download the new edition (which will have a new cover) as an update. I’ll do this around or slightly before the publication of Just One Silver Fox, which is just about the time that Just One Fake Date will become a free series starter.

Just One Silver Fox, book six of Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeThe thing is that if you download this update, the existing file will be over-written. That means you won’t have Simply Irresistible anymore. There’s no way around this, so you’ll have to choose whether to take the update, or buy the new editions separately.

Then I’ll create a second boxed set, including Just One Hometown Hero, Two Weddings & a Baby, Just One Second Chance and Just One Silver Fox next summer, and publish it around the time that Aidan’s book is released. Aidan’s book will be the first in a new contemporary romance series set in Harte’s Harbor. I may also do a boxed set of the four books in the Flatiron Five Tattoo series next summer.

I’ll get the covers done closer to the end of the year and will put up a pre-order for the second boxed set once the first one is updated and available.

That’s the plan!

Flatiron Five Tattoo

More new covers!

Secret Heart Ink has a new series name – Flatiron Five Tattoo – new titles and new covers. This makes it more obvious that this series is set in the same world as Flatiron Five Fitness.

Here are the new covers:

Chynna is the tattoo artist who has her shop in the Flatiron Five Fitness lobby. Each month, on the full moon, Chynna gives away a special tattoo that brings true love to the recipient. Three friends from Honey Hill, Maine are the first to experience Chynna’s moon magic. Book four is Chynna’s own story.

Just One Snowbound Night, book one of the Flatiron Five Tattoo series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke Just One Vacation Night, book two of the Flatiron Five Tattoo series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Just One Unforgettable Night, book three of the Flatiron Five Tattoo series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke Just One Christmas Night, book four of the Flatiron Five Tattoo series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

There’s a Pinterest board for Flatiron Five Tattoo, again with subsidiary boards for the individual stories.

You can read this series without reading Flatiron Five, and vice versa. You can read the two series in order separately, one after the other – I’d read Flatiron Five first in that case.

Once again, these will be updates. If you’ve bought the books already, you’ll be able to download the new versions as updates from your portal of choice. I plan to have these available again in August.

New Editions of The Dragon Diaries

Today, all three books in The Dragon Diaries trilogy are available in new editions!

Flying Blind, book #1 of the Dragon Diaries series of paranormal YA novels by Deborah Cooke

Zoë is the Wyvern of the Pyr—the one female dragon shape shifter with special powers.  But Zoë is at the bottom of the class when it comes to being Pyr, and her powers are AWOL. Worse, there’s no reference book to consult, and the last Wyvern is dead….

Everything changes when Zoë’s best friend is bullied and Zoë reacts. Before she can blink twice, her inner dragon is loose, and she’s suspended from school and headed to a shape shifter boot camp with guys she’s known all her life. But soon she’s doubting her powers—and even some of her friendships.

Zoë quickly realizes she has to master her powers yesterday—there’s danger ahead and boot camp is a trap. A secretive group, the Mages, want to eliminate all shifters and the Pyr are next in line—unless Zoë and her friends can solve the riddle and work together to save their own kind…

“Zoe is a wonderful heroine–smart, strong and sympathetic. Bring on book two!”

Winging It, book #2 of the Dragon Diaries YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke

Zoë Sorensson yearns to come into her powers as the only female dragon shifter. But being part of two worlds is more complicated than she expected. It’s bad enough that she’s the target of the Mages’ plan to eliminate all shifters—she also has to hide her true nature from her best friend Meagan, a human. For her sixteenth birthday, all Zoë wants is one normal day, including a tattoo and a chance to see hot rocker Jared.

Instead, the Pyr throw her a birthday party but ban Meagan from attendance, putting Zoë in a tight spot. Things get even worse when Zoë is invited to the popular kids’ Halloween party and Meagan’s left out. Zoë knows the party is a trap laid by the host, an apprentice Mage. When Meagan gets a last-minute invite, Zoë must save the day—and her best friend—without revealing her fire-breathing secrets…

Blazing the Trail, #3 of the Dragon Diaries YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and Zoë Sorensson’s love life is heating up. Cute, loyal, and understanding, wolf shifter Derek is pretty much the perfect guy. He likes Zoë, and he knows what it’s like to have to keep a secret. Yet, Zoë can’t help but wish it was rebel rocker Jared asking her to the Valentine’s dance instead. But Jared’s too busy playing hot and cold with her heart, calling Zoë his dragon girl one minute and then taking special interest in her best friend the next.

Zoë is just about ready to breathe fire, especially once she uncovers a new threat that targets her friends. Although Zoë thought the Mages were defeated, they’re back and have invoked an old spell to give them new power—they plan to eliminate all shape shifters on the night of the big dance. Now, Zoë must lead an alliance of young shifters to battle the Mages and figure out exactly what—and who—she wants, before it all goes up in smoke…

“I have been a huge fan of Deborah Cooke for many years. When a new release comes across my path, I truly do a happy dance. Cooke has lived up to her previous work with BLAZING THE TRAIL. I loved how Zoe deals with the everyday issues in front of her while trying to save the world with the Pyr and fellow shifters.”—Fresh Fiction
