Lots of “new” in this post, so let’s get to it! First up, sales, because who doesn’t love a sale? For a limited time, THE OTHER HALF OF THE GRAVE, the first “Bones side of the story” novel, is a Kindle Monthly Deal for April at only $2.49. Get yours at #Ad Amazon HERE.
Hesitating over this book because it’s a retelling? Let me quote from some recent verified purchases because if *I* say it’s worth trying, that’s obviously biased, but I don’t know these readers:
“I thought I liked Bones from my many rereads of this series? My respect for him then didn’t do this person justice.”
“I love the night huntress books and was a little disappointed when I read book one was coming from Bones point of view, I thought it would be a waste of time reading it but how wrong was I!!! I LOVED it.”
“I always wondered what Bones was thinking this entire time and it was so great to get inside his head. Never realized how deeply he felt and how thoughtful he was.”
But wait, there’s more!
The newest Night Huntress story with Cat, Bones, Denise, and the rest of the gang, A GRAVE GIRLS’ GETAWAY, is also a Kindle Monthly Deal for April at $1.49! Get yours at #Ad Amazon HERE.
Vampire Cat Crawfield is experiencing a new role as a mother. Turns out, trying to manage a perfect domestic life for her daughter is more…challenging than Cat ever imagined. Since things have finally quieted down in the undead world, her husband, Bones, suggests that Cat recharge by spending a girls-only getaway with her best friend, Denise. But when witches crash the party, a fun getaway turns into a paranormal showdown. Read an excerpt HERE.

Finally, here’s a new snippet from BOTH FEET IN THE GRAVE, the second “Bones point of view” novel. This one is a shorter snippet because this post is already long enough, but it gives you a glimpse into a question I’ve long been asked: WHEN did Bones first see that Cat got a tattoo matching his? I didn’t include that in the original Night Huntress series, but I got a chance to put it in this book. Enjoy!

Cat went to the doorway where she’d left her dress. The dead blonde woman had almost fallen on it, and a few stray streaks from the blonde’s punctured heart stained the lavender dress.
“Smart to remove it,” Bones commented. “That frock’s snug fit would have cost you fluidity, and taking it off would have been quite distracting to the vampires in here.”
She gave him a look as she shimmied into the dress. “I do remember how to hunt, you know.”
He was about to respond when a flash of dark lines on her hip caught his eye. At once, Ian’s words rang in his head. Seeing your distinctive cross-bones symbol on her hip is what distracted me enough for her to plug a silver stake in my heart…
Bones was across the room and touching her hip before Cat could shout “Stop!”
Too late. Bones traced the lines in Cat’s tattoo. Every notch and curve was identical to the one he had on his upper arm. She’d memorized his cross-bones so thoroughly that a picture couldn’t have been more accurate. His emotions fired like the finale of a fireworks show.
“Stop touching me,” Cat said in a hoarse voice.
“You don’t want me to,” Bones whispered. “I see it in your eyes, and your scent betrays you.”
Yearning and frustration battled in her gaze, and then, hardness covered them both. “We have vampires to kill.”
Bones withdrew his hand. Yes, they did.
Cat finished pulling up her dress and walked out the door.
