New F5F Postcards

I’ve ordered some new postcards for the Flatiron Five Fitness series, with Flatiron Five Tattoo on the back. They’ll be 5″ by 7″.

I can’t wait to see the finished postcards when they arrive.

As always, postcards are free for the asking. If you’d like some of these, you can comment on this post or send me an email. I’m not sure how long it will take for them to arrive from the States, but I’ll send them out once they do.

Dragonfire T-Shirts

To celebrate the republication of Dragonfire in new editions, I decided to have some t-shirts printed. I chose a shaped black t-shirt. I was a bit worried about the orange printing well on the black, but they came today and I think they’re awesome!

My Nelly agreed to model for us:

She’s wearing a black skirt but you can see where the t-shirt ends. The color on this shot is more true than on the ones below, which were taken outside.

Here’s what the logo looks like: Dragonfire t-shirts, for the Dragonfire series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke

I’m really pleased with them!

The vast majority of these shirts are going to Romancing the Capital for their swag bags. I’ll be giving away the rest of the t-shirts on my Dragonfire blog and in my Dragons & Angels newsletter in June, so keep your eyes open!

New Flatiron Five Bookmarks

I’m getting my swag organized this month! There are new bookmarks for Flatiron Five in the works. These ones have the Secret Heart Ink covers on the back. Here’s a screenshot:

Ooops. Did I just show you the third Secret Heart Ink cover? 🙂 We haven’t done Theo’s cover yet, even though his book is coming in January.

As ever, if you’d like some of these bookmarks, just comment on the post and let me know. You don’t have to include your mailing information – I’ll email you to get it privately. I’ll send the bookmarks out when they come from the printer, probably in two weeks or so.

New Dragonfire Bookmarks

Here’s a day I’ve been waiting for! Since all the covers are updated, I’ve ordered new Dragonfire bookmarks. Here’s a screenshot of what they look like – they’ll be 2″ by 8″ and the finished bookmarks will have rounded corners. The screenshot will probably show better color than any photograph I take of the actual bookmarks. 🙂

Bookmark design for the Dragonfire series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeI should have these in a couple of weeks. If you’d like a couple, please comment on this post. You don’t have to include your email or mailing addy in your comment – I’ll contact you to ask for it, so it isn’t sitting on the internet for anyone to slurp.

How Charming

You probably remember my tutorial on making mini-books as charms for Romancing the Capital. At RTC, there’s a treasure hunt in which readers try to find participating authors to get a charm. (They’re given empty bracelets at registration).

Book Charms made by Deborah Cooke

I really enjoyed making these charms and got excited about getting most of my book covers on charms. There are some left from the conference and I remember that some of you were interested in them. I’ve listed them for sale in the store, and put a small charge on them ($5 plus free postage), not because I hope to make money on them (I won’t) but to put a dint in the cost of postage and that of my assistant filling out customs forms for each package.

They’re in two categories because there are so many variations. There’s a new category in the store called The Hoard – you’ll find the Claire Delacroix book charms here, and the Deborah Cooke ones here.

Packing for RTC2017

I’ve just about finished packing books and swag for Romancing the Capital this week in Ottawa. This is a fabulous conference and I love attending it. Eve Langlais does a terrific job of organizing everything, and I suspect everyone has as wonderful a time as I do.

This year, Eve is once again giving charm bracelets to registrants, so they can collect charms during the conference. I made my book charms for this, and got a little bit carried away. (All those book covers…I had to try them all!) Here’s my box of charms for that giveaway – and the book charms aren’t even all in the box yet! It’s going to be full to bursting!

I also harvested some of the charms to make clips with entire series of books on them. These will be prizes in my Knights vs. Dragons session:

We do puzzles in that session and complete for prizes—I have puzzles made of my book covers. This year, the puzzles are Fallen, The Beauty Bride, the new cover for The Princess and Wyvern’s Outlaw, which is a cover reveal.

I made some dragon clips as doorprizes for the panel discussion about dragon shifter romance:

And there is swag for the registration bags. This year, I did coloring packs. Here are three of them taken apart so you can see what’s inside. There are three postcards in each bag—one for Fallen, one for The Beauty Bride and one for Wyvern’s Mate—with the cover on the front in full color and a line drawing on the back to colour, then the package of pencil crayons with a sharpener in the lid. Each set is packed up in a yellow organza gift bag. They’re cropped in this picture, because the postcards have codes on them for attendees to download these three books for free. I did the line drawings myself. 🙂

Coloring Swag for RTC2017 from Deborah CookeIn addition to all of this, there are two kinds of dragon necklaces, and temporary dragon tattoos. Here’s one kind of necklace – these have semi-precious stones in the dragons’ talons. This year, they have black cords but my office dragon still likes them:

Promotional Tote Bag from Claire Delacroix and Deborah CookeThis is one conference I’m glad that I drive to, because I can pack everything in the truck. This year, though, there won’t be much space left for passengers!

I’m teaching a workshop on Thursday at 1 PM on publishing, then participating in a lot of panel discussions. It’s going to be busy and fun. I’m looking forward to seeing all of you who are planning to attend! Remember that Saturday’s booksigning at Romancing the Capital is open to the public.

More Fun with Book Charms

I posted a while ago about the book charms that I’m making for Romancing the Capital in August. They’re so cute that once I had a bunch of them, I made some door prizes for my events.

One of the things I’ve done with them is make key fobs for entire book series. Here’s the Dragons of Incendium one, beside a mini-book of Wyvern’s Mate.

Here’s another one, for the Prometheus Project series of urban fantasy romances with fallen angel heroes. (I was pretty excited to find the feather charms!)

Finally, since I have dragon charms, I had to make some earrings.
