Meet Drakina

There’s an excerpt in my 2016 Sampler which introduces Drakina, and the copy says that there will be more information about her story on my blog by May 1. Well, today’s the day!

Wyvern's Mate, book #1 in the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeWyvern’s Mate is the first in a series of paranormal romances featuring the twelve royal princesses of Incendium, who also happen to be dragon shifters. Drakina’s story is available for pre-order at major online portals for June 15. As discussed yesterday, The Dragons of Incendium have their own website. You’ll find excerpts, character listings and buy links on that site.

Newsletter subscribers had a sneak peek of Wyvern’s Mate this month. That longer excerpt is available free in my online store in EPUB or MOBI.

I will have some advance print copies of Wyvern’s Mate at Romancing the Capital in Ottawa next week, and also a few at BookCon 2016 in Chicago. I’ll be signing at BookCon in the RWA booth on Saturday May 14 at noon. Be sure to find me to ask for one!


Romancing the Capital & Signed Books

f3a66-rtc2015I’ll be attending the Romancing the Capital Reader Conference in May, and am really looking forward to it. It was a fun conference last year (its first) and the second year promises to be even better. This year, in addition to the games, dinners, panel discussions and spotlights on individual authors, there will be some classes for aspiring writers on the day before the other activities begin. I’ll be teaching, as well as participating in several panel discussions.

The conference is sold out, but there may be some people with changed plans. If you want to attend, visit the RTC Facebook group and/or contact Eve Langlais, who is organizing the event. Her email is on the RTC site right here. At this writing, there are still some places available without meal tickets. (You could attend my Knights vs Dragons session or our panel discussion Dragons are a Girl’s Best Friend.) If you’re interested, contact Eve and she might be able to find a solution for you.

If you’re NOT attending the conference, you can still attend the booksigning, which is open to the public.

Last year, the booksigning was CRAZY! Most authors sold out of books very quickly. So, if there’s a specific title of mine that you’d like to get at the booksigning, I strongly recommend that you pre-order it. There’s a limit to how many books I can bring and I don’t want you to be disappointed. I have a pre-order form for books for the conference right here.

I’ve also added a new option to my online store for pick-up of signed print books, with RTC as one of the possible locations. There are more backlist print titles and editions in the store than on the Google form, but I won’t bring any of these unless they’re ordered in advance. Some quantities are limited, also, like the number of complete sets of Dragonfire in mass market available. As usual, you can choose to pre-pay for your books with Paypal, Mastercard or Visa, or you can pay cash at the event. They’ll be set aside for you, either way.
