New Dragonfire Print Editions

As the new Dragonfire editions are formatted for digital and print, I’ve been ordering single copies of the print books. I want to read them one more time for typos before the books are published. OCR scans leave a lot of teeny tiny typos, and we want to catch them all.

This also gives me the chance to show you all the new print books. They’re trade paperback, the same trim size as the conclusion of the series. Here are the new editions of Kiss of Fury, Kiss of Fate and Winter Kiss with the original mass market editions.

New Dragonfire trade paperback editions published by Deborah CookeThe Dragonfire editions that are in trade paperback already have the gloss covers and I can’t change that setting. (That’s The Dragon Legion Collection, Serpent’s Kiss and Firestorm Forever.) I tried Winter Kiss in the matte finish here, because pale covers look good with that finish. It looks nice, but I’m going to change it to glossy to match the others. I think the glossy finish echoes the finish of the original books, which had foil stamping and embossing too. Kiss of Fury even had a tint varnish in its original edition, which was kind of a silvery-blue and very pretty.

New Dragonfire trade paperback editions, published by Deborah CookeIf you’re looking for mass market editions to complete your collection, they’re getting pretty scarce. The rest of mine are listed for sale in my online store as signed editions. You can find them in Collectors Editions, starting here on page two of the listings. And yes, there’s a new cover of Kiss of Fire shown there, too. That’s the hardcover edition.

What do you think? I’m really pleased with them. 🙂

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:
Harmonia's Kiss, #5 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeKiss of Danger, #10 of The Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeKiss of Darkness, #11 of The Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeKiss of Destiny, #12 of The Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeSerpent's Kiss, #13 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeFirestorm Forever, #14 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke
