December Update from Deborah Cooke

Well, better late than never! Sorry I didn’t get to this posted n the 15th as planned – it’s been one of those weeks.

But there’s lots of good news! WINTER KISS has been chosen as a Blue Ribbon Favourite Read by the reviewers at Romance Junkies! And WINTER KISS has also been nominated by Romantic Times for their Best ShapeShifter Romance of 2009 award! Woo-HOO!

January will see the release of THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF IRISH ROMANCE. I have a novella in this anthology called “The Ballad of Rosamunde” – Rosamunde was a secondary character in my Jewels of Kinfairlie trilogy, one who was trapped in the realm of Faerie at the end of the series. (Because I, incorrectly, believed that there would be more books in that series, and thus time to give Rosamunde her H.E.A.) Well, she gets her H.E.A. in this novella, which is a huge relief to me. Any of you who remember Rosamunde will guess that she has been a particularly noisy ghost, haunting my office these past years. She is, after all, a pirate queen, and a little more boisterous and unconventional than your average historical romance novel heroine.

Other than that, I’m just writing along. Dragonfire #5, which is Niall’s book and is called WHISPER KISS, will be out next August. I’ll tell you more about it in the new year, but I think you’re really going to like the heroine, Rox. And I’m busily writing Rafferty’s book, tentatively scheduled for an April 2011 release. The angel trilogy is done at my end as well – book #3 in my Claire Delacroix angel series from Tor is called REBEL and will be released in September 2010. No yummy covers to show you yet, but that will probably change in the next couple of months.

Meanwhile, it’s the holidays! I hope you have a lot to celebrate this holiday season, and lots of loved ones close by to share the festitivities with you. All the best to you and yours for 2010 – and may we all always have lots of good books to read.
