Hard Cover Editions with Cloth Covers

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:

Print Copies of One Hot Summer Night

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, book #3 of the Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke, in print

“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

Signed Books or Not?

The Dragonfire Novels, a dragon shifter romance series by Deborah CookeI’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

What do you think?

Flatiron Five Signed Book Bundle

Simply Irresistible, a contemporary romance by Deborah Cooke and first in the Flatiron Five series.I’ve added a new product to my online store. It’s a bundle of the first three trade paperbacks in the Flatiron Five series: Simply Irresistible, Addicted to Love, and In the Midnight Hour. When you buy your print books from me, of course, your copies will be signed.

This bundle should retail at $50.97 CA but is discounted to $39.99 CA when you buy the bundle. That’s just over $31 US.

You can find the bundle in the store, right here.

Pre-Order Books for Romancing the Capital

I’m pretty proud of myself. I created a form for you to pre-order books for the book signing at Romancing the Capital this August!

I listed the most popular print titles, but you can request that I bring any book for you. I have a pretty complete inventory of all the backlist and older titles listed in my online store with prices. You can also order any discounted bundles and pick them up at RTC. Quantities are limited on those, but I’ll remove them from the store when you pay for yours. Please use the form if you’re picking them up at RTC, as the store will automatically charge shipping.

You can check out the form right here.

Please order by July 1 – we’ll bill the pre-orders then and get all the books ready for the conference with no stress.

The Crusader’s Handfast Giveaway

Many of you have commented that giveaways are always for digital books, and that you’d like to win signed print books for your keeper shelf. (Be sure to check out the Highland DreamWeavers Extravaganza, as there are a number of signed print books to be won in that contest.) Because of your comments, I’ve decided to add a new monthly contest for (surprise!) signed print copies of my books. Each month, I’ll feature a title. All you have to do for your chance to win is comment on the blog post. Depending on the number of entries, I may add more copies of the book in question.

This contest is open to readers in US, Canada, UK, Australia and NZ.

The Crusader's Handfast, #5 in the Champions of Saint Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixDecember’s featured title is The Crusader’s Handfast, a choice that seems apt as Duncan and Radegunde’s story is a May-December romance. It’s also a medieval romance, with action, adventure and intrigue, which begins in Paris and ends in Scotland. The Crusader’s Handfast was originally published in installments, but the complete story is now available in a single volume, in both digital and print editions. You can read the first installment free now – both the EPUB and the MOBI are available for free download from my online store.

For your chance to win a signed copy, just comment on this post. Tell me what you love most about Scottish heroes. I’ll choose a winner at the beginning of January.

Good luck!

New Print Bundles in the Store

The Crusader's Bride, a medieval romance by Claire DelacroixIt seems I’m always playing around in my online store. What’s new now? Well, I’ve added some series bundles there, with special pricing. This is how I sell books at signings and other appearances, so it made sense to me to do the same in the store. Essentially, if you buy trade paperback copies of all the books in the series, you get a better price and a tote bag to carry them in. Some of the series with OOP covers are really discounted—they’re called Bargain Bundles. You’ll find these series in print bundles in the store:

The Bride Quest II
The Rogues of Ravensmuir
The Jewels of Kinfairlie
The True Love Brides
The Champions of St. Euphemia (the series so far)
The Coxwells
The Prometheus Project

The True Love Brides Boxed Set of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixI also created some new categories and rearranged the virtual shelves. You can find digital copies of the Dragons of Incendium books there now, as well as the print ones.

The True Love Brides Digital Boxed Set is in the store because it’s only available at Kobo and Apple—if you have a Kindle, you can get a MOBI edition in the store. Of course, the EPUB is there, too.

I’ll add some more digital bundles that aren’t available in wide distribution over the coming days. I’m waiting, for example, on the new cover for the Prometheus Project Boxed Set, and will add it to the store’s virtual inventory when it’s done.

Beguiled, a collection of short stories and novellas by Claire Delacroix and Deborah CookeBeguiled wasn’t there, for some reason, but now it is.

You can find all the old editions of my books in the new category called Collectors’ Editions.

Also, an astute reader found some inconsistencies in the Kinfairlie and Ravensmuir family trees, so those PDF’s have all been updated in the store. You can find Family Trees right here.
