Interview at The Reading Frenzy – and a Review

Wyvern's Angel, book #9 of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeI did an interview with Debbie Haupt at the Reading Frenzy about Wyvern’s Angel, and it’s posted today. We chatted about books and writing and my various series.

Come on over!

Here’s a bit from Deb’s review of Wyvern’s Angel, too:
“Cooke’s latest dragon shifter tale continues to be a mix of sci-fi, fantasy and paranormal romance and stars Percipia, Princess number five and her Angel mate, Bond. It’s a space dragon drama that will draw readers in with a fluent narrative an imaginative well mapped out world, an impressive and inventive storytelling style and a vast stable of interesting characters.”

Thanks, Deb! You can read the whole review at the bottom of the interview.

Wyvern’s Angel

Wyvern's Angel, book #9 of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeWyvern’s Angel is running late in the final production and formatting. 😦 I was late getting the book written and missed my slot with my editor. Everyone pulled together to get it done, but we didn’t quite make it. Right now, the book is being proofread and it will be published immediately after that.

I’m hoping for tomorrow.

I moved the delivery dates at KOBO and iBooks into June, because they (esp iBooks) need time to process the book file which they didn’t have yet. When I upload the book file, I’ll move the publication date back to make the book available immediately. At iBooks, there will be a slight delay, since they manually review all book files. I’ll publish to the other portals at the same time.

Fingers crossed that you’ll be able to get the book tomorrow at most portals and from iBooks by the end of the week.

My Dragons & Angels newsletter will go out Thursday or Friday and will include a special offer for subscribers.

The next short story in the Dragons of Incendium series will be Nimue’s Gift. The print edition of Wyvern’s Angel will be available when Nimue’s Gift is published and can be included in the print book.

The next romance in the series will be Peri and Nero’s story, Wyvern’s Wizard.

What threw my schedule was preparing the first eight Dragonfire novels for re-publication. Six of them are done now and the seventh will be locked and loaded today, so I’ll be back to my regular rhythm very soon.

Thanks for your patience! I really like Bond and Percipia’s story and hope you do, as well.

Signed Bundle of Books

Wyvern's Outlaw, #7 of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeI’ve added a new product to my online store: the Dragons of Incendium Print Series Bundle includes signed copies of all the mini-books in the series so far. You’ll also receive a free tote bag with your order.

Right now, the bundle includes the minibook editions of Wyvern’s Mate, Wyvern’s Prince, Wyvern’s Warrior and Wyvern’s Outlaw, but I’ll be adding Wyvern’s Angel to the bundle once the print copies of that title arrive. I’ll let you know when that happens, or you can bookmark the product page in the store, which is right here. Remember the store operates in Canadian dollars.

Tangled Timelines

Wyvern's Warrior, #5 of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeOne of the interesting things for me about the Incendium series is how the stories lead to each other and connect to each other. Usually, I wrote series in which each book follows the previous one in the chronology of the world. The sequence is linear. Incendium has never been like that. It started with Nero’s Dream. Characters meet before it’s time for their own story, usually to share details that explain more of the world. Characters tell stories about what happened in the past – that includes Nero, Arista, Kraw (although he was outed by the ShadowCaster), and Celo. 2018 seems to be the year of the world guide for me, so I’m compiling lists and spreadsheets like mad. While there are several ongoing references already compiled for this series – see Guides to Incendium – this week, I’ve been charting out the full chronology of Incendium as told to date. That’s also helping me to plan the rest of the series in greater detail and make sure I don’t leave anything out.

So, here’s a fun Incendium fact for you: the chronologies of Wyvern’s Warrior, Wyvern’s Outlaw and Wyvern’s Angel overlap.

Wyvern's Outlaw, #7 of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeIn Wyvern’s Warrior, Anguissa returns to Incendium on her ship, the Archangel. She then helps Acion and Thalina escape. About a heartbeat later 🙂 the Archangel encounters the ship of Captain Hellemut again. Anguissa leaves the Archangel, while Acion and Thalina continue their story.

But Anguissa’s story (Wyvern’s Outlaw) starts when she leaves the Archangel. She meets Ryke on Captain Hellemut’s ship and recognizes him as the Carrier of the Seed.

Meanwhile, back on Incendium, Bond and Percipia’s story (Wyvern’s Angel) starts with the Archangel’s return to port. In fact, Bond has already left the starport by the time we meet Anguissa in Wyvern’s Warrior. This is kind of bending my mind a bit, but it is fun.

Wyvern's Angel, book #9 of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeI’ve also realized that these three dragon shifter princesses will all be meeting their destined mate, falling in love, and getting pregnant at the same time. The birth of three royal babies in rapid succession certainly calls for a party.

In Wyvern’s Mate, the High Priestess of Nimue arrived to bless the baby. Who will arrive on Incendium to bless these three children? Or will they be given wishes instead? And what about Gemma’s child? Once again, I have a second generation of shifters to accommodate in my paranormal world. The short story after Wyvern’s Angel will be about the party for those three babies.

More details to come!

Pinterest Boards

Wyvern's Angel, #9 of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeI’ve been plotting, which also means I’ve been playing on Pinterest. My boards have moved around a bit, since Pinterest now allows them to be nested – instead of each book having its own board, each book is a section within a board dedicated to each series. (I think this is pretty cool.)

I updated the board for the Dragons of Incendium. You can find it right here.

I still have my board Dragons for illustrations and other matters dragon-related. You can find it right here.
