Great Start to the Year

We started the new year off well with that sale on The Wolf & the Witch. Even when I returned it to the regular price yesterday, Maximilian was still on the charts. It’s been a while since I’ve seen such a long tail on a BookBub Featured Deal. He is one stubborn guy. LOL

I’m also thrilled with the results of my first Kickstarter campaign ever. The 15th Anniversary HardCover Omnibus Editions of the Dragonfire Novels funded at 350%, which was great. My plan for 2023 is to work on building my platform at KS, so I’ll be offering other existing series in new editions. Based on this campaign’s performance, I’m not going to bother with stretch goals and my new campaigns will be shorter. They’ll be more like flash sales and limited-time opportunities to buy both digital content from me and signed print books. I’ll only be selling print books directly through Kickstarter. In 2024, I plan to offer more new content through Kickstarter and Patreon early, before it’s available at the portals.

Kickstarter requires one campaign to be completely fulfilled before I can create even a landing page for a new one, so my planned campaigns for this year won’t have long previews. I hope to have four campaigns per year, two for my PNR and two for my historicals. We’ll see how the timing works out on that!

The Bride Quest 25th anniversary hardcover omnibus editions by Claire Delacroix at Kickstarter

My second campaign at Kickstarter will feature hardcover omnibus editions of the Bride Quest trilogies. (Can you believe it’s been 25 years since the publication of The Princess?) There will be two omnibus editions, one for each trilogy, and the covers will look a lot like the digital bundles. There will, of course, also be some exclusive swag and the omnibus editions will only be available through Kickstarter. This first campaign will be your opportunity to have your copies signed and the page edges gilded. (This is one of my new tricks!) That will run in the spring, ideally in April, but maybe in May.

My third campaign will be for a hardcover omnibus edition of The Dragon Diaries with interior illustrations. I’d like to run another Delacroix Kickstarter in the fall, but we’ll see how the timing works out. Fulfillment of print editions can be an issue in November and December.

If you love special editions for your keeper shelf or early access to new stories, you’ll want to follow me at both Kickstarter and Patreon so you don’t miss out. Short campaigns mean you need to act quickly!

I’m also going to start sharing Kickstarter campaigns with you that I find intriguing, so that you can get an idea of what’s available there. Here’s an upcoming campaign from Christina Phillips for her Scottish medieval romances, The Highland Warrior Chronicles. You can follow the campaign now and be notified when it launches.

At Nook, of course, the sale wasn’t supported because their backend systems are down and the price change didn’t go through. Fingers crossed that they get that fixed soon.

The Beauty, book five of the Bride Quest series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, is just 99cents, October 19 - 26, 2020

The Beauty remains on sale this week, so if you don’t have your copy yet, get it now!
