I’m trying one of my experiments in publishing, this time with print editions of my books, and I could use your help. My print editions are available at Amazon through their print services but also are available to bookstores from Ingrams. Ingrams offers a lot of options, and I’ve recently changed up my choices to make stocking my books more appealing to bricks-and-mortar bookstores located in the US. The following series are included in my experiment:
Flatiron Five Fitness
Flatiron Five Tattoo
The DragonFate Novels
The Champions of St. Euphemia
If you are in the US, have a favorite local bookstore and would like to see my books there, please ask them about stocking them. Discoverability is a bit of a challenge in this market, and your request would certainly help bring your local bookseller’s attention to my books, and their availability. Thank you! 🙂
Ingrams, the supplier I use for printing my books, has announced that they will be discontinuing their clothbound books. From their email: “On October 22, 2019, we will be retiring our blue and grey cloth covers and gold foil spine stamping in favor of a blue and grey digital cloth image with linen textured lamination.”
I really like the clothbound editions so am disappointed by this, although I understand that it must be a more complicated production process.
Right now, I have the Flatiron Five series and the Dragonfire Novels available in these clothbound hardcover editions. Both have blue cloth. The interiors are the same as the trade paperbacks and the books are just a little larger for the case. Here are my Dragonfire editions beside each other on the shelf:
If you’d like any of these books in the clothbound hardcover editions, you should order them soon. You can order them from the usual online portals – there are links on the landing pages for the books – or you can order signed copies directly from me.
Here’s a link for ordering the Dragonfire Novels in hardcover from me:

I received print copies of my latest medieval romance, The Runaway Bride, this weekend. Aren’t they pretty?

There’s really nothing like getting print copies of one of my books. The thrill never fades. Last week, the print copies of One Hot Summer Night arrived. Here are a few of them:
“ONE HOT SUMMER NIGHT is a story of second chances; a rekindling, of a sort, for two people whose lives went in opposite directions eventually finding one another when the time was right. The premise is heart breaking and emotional; the romance is passionate; the characters struggle to move on from the past. Deborah Cooke invites the reader into a spirited yet tender, revealing and sensual tale of family, loss, commitment, and love.” —The Reading Cafe

I’ve been looking at options for those of you who want to buy the entire series of Dragonfire novels in trade paperback or in the hardcover collectors’ editions. I do have both listed for sale in my online store: here’s the paperback series and here’s the hardcover series.
If you order them – or any other books – from my Selz store, your books will be signed by me.
They’ll also be shipped from the printer in the US to me in Canada, then shipped by me to you, wherever you might be. That’s a lot of shipping cost, as the whole collection is comparatively heavy.
I’ve found an alternative in the US, which would mean that the books would be shipped from the US directly to you. (This option would work best for those of you who live in the US.) The books would not be signed, because they wouldn’t come to me at all, but the price would be lower – both because they’d only be shipped once, and because they’d only be shipped within the US and that postage is cheaper than international postage. I could send signed bookplates to anyone who ordered this way instead.
I have to set up an online store through this service – which is managed by the good people who print my books in the first place – so would like to have an idea whether it’s an interesting possibility for you or not. I could set it up for ALL of my books
