Print Editions

Kiss of Fire, book #1 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeThings are coming together for the republication of the first eight novels in the Dragonfire series. Kiss of Fire and Kiss of Fury are locked and loaded for June 26 delivery and I’m getting excited!

I also have some new links to share with you. (The Amazon links, remember, will go live on the on sale date as I’m not doing pre-orders there.) I also have print copies of the new edition available for pre-order in my online store. These include the ebook of the new edition, too. (There are mass market copies for sale there too, the last few that I have, but they do NOT include a digital download.)

For Kiss of Fire, there’s also a hardcover collectors’ edition, which has free postage for the US and Canada. All print books purchased in my online store are signed by me.

Pinterest Boards

Kiss of Fate, #3 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeI’ve been sorting out the Pinterest boards for my dragons. There’s a new board for Dragonfire, which you can find right here.

I’ve also added sections within that folder, one for each book. It’ll take me a while to populate them all, but I’ve started. The Firestorm Forever board is now a subsidiary section in the Dragonfire folder. The Here Be Dragons board was secret, but now it’s a section in the Dragonfire folder, too. I’ve made the most progress on the boards for the first three books, but even they need more. Check out the Kiss of Fire board, the Kiss of Fury board and the Kiss of Fate board.

Doing this also reminded me to turn on the Pinterest hover pin for this site, so you can pin any of the images here to your boards.

Those New Editions

Kiss of Fire, book #1 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeNow that the new covers are done and the existing Dragonfire covers have been updated, you’ll start to see them out in the world.

This week, I’ll be updating the existing Dragonfire titles with their new covers: the new series logo has been added to the covers for Harmonia’s Kiss, Kiss of Danger, Kiss of Darkness, Kiss of Destiny, The Dragon Legion Collection, Serpent’s Kiss, and Firestorm Forever.

The new covers for the first eight Dragonfire novels have been uploaded to iBooks and Kobo already and the series numbering has been updated at both portals.

Kiss of Fury, #2 of the Dragonfire novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeYou’ll see the covers populate at the other portals as the book interiors complete the editing process and the final book files are uploaded. I’m finishing up Kiss of Fire right now, and will be working on Kiss of Fury this week.

I’m not doing pre-orders at Amazon this year, so you won’t see the new editions listed for sale their until the on-sale date. You might see the new print edition a couple of days earlier – it depends how organized I am! This does mean, though, that I am listing the books for pre-order at GooglePlay. Right now, they’re verifying my right to publish Kiss of Fire, but that should be sorted out by the end of the week.

This is a big, BIG job, but progress is being made! Once I get these eight books uploaded (and the updated editions of the other seven), I’ll dig into Here Be Dragons.

Here are the updated covers for the other Dragonfire novels, novellas and short stories:

New Dragonfire Covers

The other day, I had an email from a reader who wasn’t happy that the Dragonfire covers would be changed for the new editions of the books. I’m not changing the covers to create confusion: I have to change the covers because the original publisher holds the rights to the original covers. When the rights to the book revert to the author, it’s only the book itself (the inside bit) that reverts because that’s the part the author created.

The interesting thing is that sometimes the publisher contracts with an illustrator or photographer for the image for the outside cover. (Other times, people working at the house create the cover art.) When an outside artist is commissioned, the rights to the illustration or photograph can revert to the artist, just the way the book can revert to the author. When this happens, it’s possible that the artist might license the rights to the image to the author for a new edition of the work. The cover won’t be exactly the same, but it can be similar.

That’s what’s happened with Dragonfire. The artist who created the illustrations for the first eight books has licensed them to me to be used on the new editions. I don’t think you’ll be very confused about which book is which, as a result.

For example, here’s the new cover for Kiss of Fire on the left, and the original mass market cover on the right. We have a new little dragon logo for the series, too.
