Signed Books – or Not?

The Dragonfire Novels, a dragon shifter romance series by Deborah CookeI’ve been looking at options for those of you who want to buy the entire series of Dragonfire novels in trade paperback or in the hardcover collectors’ editions. I do have both listed for sale in my online store: here’s the paperback series and here’s the hardcover series. If you order them here, your books will be signed by me.

They’ll also be shipped from the printer in the US to me in Canada, then shipped by me to you, wherever you might be. That’s a lot of shipping cost, as the whole collection is comparatively heavy.

I’ve found an alternative in the US, which would mean that the books would be shipped from the US directly to you. (This option would work best for those of you who live in the US.) The books would not be signed, because they wouldn’t come to me at all, but the price would be lower – both because they’d only be shipped once, and because they’d only be shipped within the US and that postage is cheaper than international postage. I could send signed bookplates to anyone who ordered this way instead.

I have to set up an online store through this service – which is managed by the good people who print my books in the first place – so would like to have an idea whether it’s an interesting possibility for you or not.

A Shelf of Dragons

I’ve received print copies of all the new editions of the Dragonfire Novels, and have rearranged my bookshelves. They now take almost the entire shelf!The Dragonfire Novels by Deborah Cooke, in their print editionsStacked at the left are the original mass market editions of the first 8 full-length books in the Dragonfire series. Then there are eleven trade paperbacks, followed by eleven hard cover editions. Each contains the full Dragonfire cycle.

The three original trade paperback editions of the Dragon Diaries are at the right, and the Commonwealth English trade paperback editions of the first two books in the Dragon Diaries are on top. These will be moved to the next shelf when I add the trade paperback and hardcover editions of Here Be Dragons to the shelf.

The award at the left is the Colorado Romance Writers’ Award of Excellence, which Kiss of Fire won in 2009. Hanging over it is a bookmark given to me by a reader.

I’m really happy with these new editions. You can buy the entire series signed from me, either in trade paperback here, or in hardcover here. If you order them for a signing, the shipping will be free. Both editions are also available at booksellers.
