Pre-Order for The Dragon Diaries

The pre-order links are up for the new editions of the Dragon Diaries, my paranormal YA trilogy that’s a spin-off from Dragonfire. The new editions will be published September 25, and the GooglePlay links will go live on that day. The Allison & Busby editions of the first two books are still available and exclusive in some territories (UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, India, etc.) so if you can’t see my editions at your portal of choice, that’s why.

Click through on the covers to read an excerpt from that book.

Flying Blind, book #1 of the Dragon Diaries series of paranormal YA novels by Deborah CookeZoë is the Wyvern of the Pyr—the one female dragon shape shifter with special powers.  But Zoë is at the bottom of the class when it comes to being Pyr, and her powers are AWOL. Worse, there’s no reference book to consult, and the last Wyvern is dead….

Everything changes when Zoë’s best friend is bullied and Zoë reacts. Before she can blink twice, her inner dragon is loose, and she’s suspended from school and headed to a shape shifter boot camp with guys she’s known all her life. But soon she’s doubting her powers—and even some of her friendships.

Zoë quickly realizes she has to master her powers yesterday—there’s danger ahead and boot camp is a trap. A secretive group, the Mages, want to eliminate all shifters and the Pyr are next in line—unless Zoë and her friends can solve the riddle and work together to save their own kind…

“Zoe is a wonderful heroine–smart, strong and sympathetic. Bring on book two!”

Winging It, book #2 of the Dragon Diaries YA trilogy by Deborah CookeZoë Sorensson yearns to come into her powers as the only female dragon shifter. But being part of two worlds is more complicated than she expected. It’s bad enough that she’s the target of the Mages’ plan to eliminate all shifters—she also has to hide her true nature from her best friend Meagan, a human. For her sixteenth birthday, all Zoë wants is one normal day, including a tattoo and a chance to see hot rocker Jared.

Instead, the Pyr throw her a birthday party but ban Meagan from attendance, putting Zoë in a tight spot. Things get even worse when Zoë is invited to the popular kids’ Halloween party and Meagan’s left out. Zoë knows the party is a trap laid by the host, an apprentice Mage. When Meagan gets a last-minute invite, Zoë must save the day—and her best friend—without revealing her fire-breathing secrets…

Blazing the Trail, #3 of the Dragon Diaries YA trilogy by Deborah CookeIt’s almost Valentine’s Day, and Zoë Sorensson’s love life is heating up. Cute, loyal, and understanding, wolf shifter Derek is pretty much the perfect guy. He likes Zoë, and he knows what it’s like to have to keep a secret. Yet, Zoë can’t help but wish it was rebel rocker Jared asking her to the Valentine’s dance instead. But Jared’s too busy playing hot and cold with her heart, calling Zoë his dragon girl one minute and then taking special interest in her best friend the next.

Zoë is just about ready to breathe fire, especially once she uncovers a new threat that targets her friends. Although Zoë thought the Mages were defeated, they’re back and have invoked an old spell to give them new power—they plan to eliminate all shape shifters on the night of the big dance. Now, Zoë must lead an alliance of young shifters to battle the Mages and figure out exactly what—and who—she wants, before it all goes up in smoke…

“I have been a huge fan of Deborah Cooke for many years. When a new release comes across my path, I truly do a happy dance. Cooke has lived up to her previous work with BLAZING THE TRAIL. I loved how Zoe deals with the everyday issues in front of her while trying to save the world with the Pyr and fellow shifters.”—Fresh Fiction

And we’re off! Today’s the day that my Dragonfire novels relaunch in new editions. The first three books in the series go on sale today, with Kiss of Fire (book #1) discounted to just 99 cents until the end of the month. The series is also available in trade paperback AND the entire series is becoming available in hardcover for your keeper shelf. Here we go!

Kiss of Fire, book #1 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeOne kiss can change the course of destiny…

When ace accountant Sara Keegan decides to settle down and run her quirky aunt’s New Age bookstore, she’s not looking for adventure. She doesn’t believe in fate or the magic of tarot cards, but when she’s saved from a vicious attack by a man who has the ability to turn into a fire-breathing dragon, she questions whether she’s losing her mind – or about to lose her heart.

Self-reliant loner Quinn Tyrrell has long been distrustful of his fellow Pyr. When he feels the firestorm that signals his destined mate, he’s determined to protect and possess Sara, regardless of the cost. Then Sara’s true destiny is revealed and Quinn realizes he must risk everything – even Sara’s love – to fulfill their entwined fates.

“Wow, what an innovative and dazzling world Ms. Cooke has built with this new Dragonfire series. Her smooth and precise writing quickly draws the reader in and has you believing it could almost be real… I can’t wait for the next two books.”—Fresh Fiction

Kiss of Fury, #2 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeOne act of passion can save the world…

Scientist Alexandra Madison was on the verge of unveiling an invention that would change the world. Then her partner was murdered, their lab was burned, and their prototype was destroyed. While Alex is in the hospital recovering from burns suffered in the fire, recurring dragon-haunted nightmares threaten to land her in the psychiatric ward, but she knows she has to escape to her lab to rebuild the Green Machine.

Handsome, daring, and impulsive, Donovan Shea is more than willing to do his part in the Pyr/Slayer war. Assigned to protect Alex, Donovan is shocked when her presence ignites his firestorm. He has no desire for a destined mate, but Alex’s intelligence and determination inspire him to join the fight to save her invention. With the Slayers closing in, Donovan knows he would surrender his life for Alex…and lose his heart to possess her.

“Epic battles, suspense, ecological concerns, humor, and romance are highlights that readers can expect in this tale. Excellent writing, a smart story, and exceptional characters earn this novel the RRT Perfect 10 Rating. Don’t miss the very highly recommended KISS OF FURY.”—Romance Reviews Today

Kiss of Fate, #3 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeOne foretold love deserves a second chance…

Haunted by dreams of a lover who takes the form of a mythical dragon, Eileen Grosvenor searches for the truth. She never expects to find a real dragon shape shifter, let alone one who awakens her passion and ignites memories of her own forgotten past.

Erik Sorensson is focused on leading the Pyr to triumph over the Slayers, even if it costs him his life. When an ancient relic that can turn the tide of the battle reveals itself, Erik knows he has to retrieve it from Eileen’s possession. But when he tries to do so, he’s shocked by an incredible firestorm that compels him to confront the truth about Eileen’s identity. Her presence reminds him of mistakes he’s determined not to repeat, and Erik is forced to make a choice: duty or love.

Only by unlocking the secrets of the past can Erik and Eileen fulfill the final prophecy of the Pyr. Can they face their deepest fears and claim their destined love in time to defeat the Slayers?

“Second chances are a key theme in this latest Dragonfire adventure. Cooke keeps the pace intense and the emotions raging in this powerful new read. She’s top-notch, as always.”—Romantic Times

New Dragon Diaries Covers

The Dragon Diaries is a young adult paranormal trilogy, featuring the coming-of-age of Zoë Sorensson, a dragon shifter and the new Wyvern of the Pyr. The trilogy should be read in order. Zoë’s story can be read after Dragonfire (when it occurs in real time) or after Darkfire Kiss (when I wrote it).

The Dragon Diaries have shiny new covers for their new editions, coming September 25, 2018. Pre-orders are available at some portals, with more to come.Flying Blind, book #1 of the Dragon Diaries series of paranormal YA novels by Deborah Cooke Winging It, book #2 of the Dragon Diaries YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke Blazing the Trail, #3 of the Dragon Diaries YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke

The Allison & Busby Commonwealth English editions of the first two books remain available in both print and digital, exclusively in the exclusive territories and non-exclusively in the non-exclusive territories. (What does that mean? The UK is an exclusive territory, therefore only the A&B editions are available there. Canada is a non-exclusive territory, therefore both the A&B editions and my new editions are available there.) The A&B editions look like this:

Since A&B didn’t acquire the rights to Flying Blind, the new edition of that book will be available everywhere.

Winter Kiss Pre-Order

One kiss can melt his frozen heart…

The mysterious Dragon’s Blood Elixir gives immortality to Magnus, the Pyr’s greatest enemy, and his minions. The Pyr must destroy this source of power, and outcast Delaney vows to complete the quest himself. Delaney was exiled because of his dangerous impulses, and success in eliminating the Elixir will either redeem him or end his suffering.

But his plans don’t take into account his sudden firestorm – or fiery Ginger Sinclair. The firestorm revitalizes Delaney, restoring him to his old self. And when Ginger learns about Delaney’s mission, she realizes she cannot resist a strong man with a noble agenda.

“A beautiful and emotionally gripping fourth novel, WINTER KISS is compelling and will keep readers riveted in their seats and breathing a happy sigh at the love shared between Delaney and Ginger. . . .Sizzling-hot love scenes and explosive emotions make WINTER KISS a must read!”—Romance Junkies

Changes Between Editions

Winter Kiss, #4 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeOne of the most frequent questions about the new editions is whether they are different from the original editions. Of course, you want to know whether you need to buy the new editions of the books. So, I’ll let you know here on the blog and on the pages for the individual books what the differences are, if there are any. This is evolving as we work through the books.

For Kiss of Fire, Kiss of Fury, and Kiss of Fate, there are no significant changes between editions.

For Winter Kiss, there is an additional scene. I wrote a scene about Magnus and Mona which was cut from the prologue of the original edition. Because I thought you needed to know what Magnus was up to, it’s been available as a free read on my website ever since. It also foreshadows Darkfire Kiss, because Mona’s death is the reason that Melissa wants revenge upon Magnus. In the new edition of Winter Kiss, this scene has been added back into the prologue.

Darkfire Kiss, #7 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeWe’re still working through the books and I’ve just found a bunch of old files, so I’ll keep you updated as we go. I know there was a bit cut from Darkfire Kiss, but I’ll let you know what I decide to do with it once I’ve reviewed it again.

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:
