This and That
by Jeaniene Frost
Am I the only one wondering HOW it could be October already? This year has flown by! Furthermore, this fall is shaping up to be my busiest yet. First, if you didn't already hear, a special $1.99 ebook edition of Halfway to the Grave is available from now until October 25th.
Go back to the beginning of the Night Huntress series with lots of additional bonus material. This includes never-before-published scenes featuring a hunt with Cat and Bones, a scene with Bones mischievously tormenting Cat during her makeover, a new sex scene, and an alternate villain at the end. Plus, it also includes the first four chapters of One Foot in the Grave, an excerpt from the upcoming The Bite Before Christmas anthology, and an excerpt from the upcoming novel Once Burned, book one in the new Night Prince series with Vlad and Leila.
I was going to embed the book trailer I had made for Halfway to the Grave, but after waiting 30 minutes and STILL blogger didn't load it, I gave up. Click here if you're interested in watching it.
Don’t have an e-reader but still want to get in on the fun? You can download software for free to read on your computer or other mobile device. Click here to see how.
Plus, as mentioned, The Bite Before Christmas releases on October 25th. I'm very excited to be in an anthology with fellow SU author Lynsay Sands, and since there are only the two of us, our stories are much longer than you would normally find in an anthology. From the back of the book:
This holiday season, join two of today’s most popular paranormal authors for a special look into their worlds, where creatures are always stirring and no one sleeps through the night. . . .
The Gift by Lynsay Sands
Teddy Brunswick knows about the immortals among us. He’s worked with them, called them friend—but he never counted on being snowed in with one over Christmas. Katricia Argeneau is a tasty little bundle and she seems to feel the same way about him. Problem is, he’s not sure she feels quite the same way. After all, the snowstorm has derailed her blood delivery, which leaves him the only available meal on the menu. . . .
Home for the Holidays by Jeaniene Frost
Cat and Bones are looking forward to a normal holiday—at least as “normal” as it gets for the combustible vampire couple and their otherworldly friends and family. But their yuletide plans are shattered when a stranger shows up and reveals long-buried family secrets that threaten to take a bite out of their holiday cheer . . . and lives.
Look for startling revelations about Bones's past in my contribution to The Bite Before Christmas. This is information I've long wanted to reveal to Night Huntress readers, so I can't wait to finally share it.
Finally, I am attending ComicCon in New York city from October 15th - 16th. Here's where you can find me:
Saturday, October 15th, 6pm – 7pm at the HarperCollins booth #944 on the main show floor.
Signing “A BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS” (special early release!) and “ONE GRAVE AT A TIME.” Books will be available for purchase.
Sunday, October 16th, 1pm – 2pm at the HarperCollins booth #944 on the main show floor.
Signing “First Drop Of Crimson,” Free giveaway of book.

WE’RE NO ANGELS: The Leading Ladies of SF/F
Beware the women of Sci-Fi/Fantasy…and their kick-ass heroines. Danger just might be these girls’ middle names. But no amount of bad guys can keep these ladies from doing what’s right. Whether standing up for friends and family, or just plain kicking some ass, these girls don’t shy away from a fight. Femmes Fatales on the panel include Patricia Briggs; Alison Goodman, Kim Harrison; Jeaniene Frost; Marjorie M. Liu, Sabrina Benulis and Kristen Painter.
Hope to see some of you there. Have a wonderful fall, everyone!
