Print Editions of the Brides of North Barrows

A Duke By Any Other Name, #2 of the Brides of North Barrows series of Regency romances by Claire DelacroixI decided to try a little experiment this month and am pretty happy with the results so far. My Brides of North Barrows Regency romances are novellas. This means their word count is between 25,000 and 30,000 words – while my books are closer to 100,000 words. I’ve had people ask about getting these stories in print editions, but in trade paperback, they’d make pretty thin books.

My Dragons of Incendium books – which end up being between 40,000 and 50,000 words, because they include a longer novella and a short story – are available in a special size from Amazon, which is 4″ by 6.5″. I like these mini-books a lot. The problem is that they can’t be distributed beyond Amazon and not all of you want to shop there. They aren’t even available to readers in all Amazon territories.Something Wicked This Way Comes, #1 of the Brides of North Barrows series of Regency romances by Claire Delacroix

The other company I use for print editions is Ingrams, and books from them are in wide distribution internationally. So, I tried out a new size there. It’s 4.25″ by 7″ which is pretty close to the mass market trim size of 4.125″ by 6.75″. The first two books I tried in this size were the two Regency novellas, Something Wicked This Way Comes and A Duke By Any Other Name. They’re about 1/4″ thick.

My copies arrived today, and here they are:

The buy links for them are also live at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I’ve added them to the book pages.

You can also order signed copies directly from me in my online store. These will also include the digital version of the story, which will be delivered by BookFunnel once your purchase is complete in the store. Right now, the print edition of Something Wicked is available in the store, while the one for A Duke will be available on March 27.

The Plan for One Knight Enchanted

One Knight Enchanted, #1 of the Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixOne Knight Enchanted, book #1 of my new Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances, will be published January 9 at Amazon.

The publication of this book is where marketing plans from 2017 collide with marketing plans for 2018. 🙂 Right now, One Knight Enchanted is set to go into Kindle Unlimited immediately, which was last year’s plan for historical romances. A number of you have contacted me, though, saying that you’d like to buy it at a portal other than Amazon. And my 2018 plan involves making my books available to you first through my online store, which can’t happen when a book is in Kindle Unlimited (because those books have to be available exclusively at Amazon.)

But I have a solution! On January 9, I’ll have the option to remove the book from Kindle Unlimited. I’m going to do that. I’ve also made it available to you today through my online store (as well as at Amazon) at the same price as Amazon. (Those are the rules). The delivery of sales from the online store will be handled by Book Funnel, so that you can be sure to get Rolfe and Annelise’s story onto your device of choice. You’ll have two weeks to buy the book in my online store. Then, on January 16, One Knight Enchanted will be enrolled in Kindle Unlimited. It’ll be available exclusively at Amazon from that point onward.
