Here is a still from the new book and music video featuring an original song by my DH and his music and production partners, the Rotten Apple Project. They have put in hundreds of hours readying for the upcoming release of THIRD GRAVE DEAD AHEAD. Let me just say, this thing is smoking’! I am thrilled to have been a part of the film crew for the Charley and Reyes segments. 

Finding my Charley was a breeze. I worked with her when I was interpreting and I knew the moment I saw her she’d make a fantastic Charley. Those eyes are to die for. But finding a Reyes? Oyeee! I cannot tell you how long it took me to find one and how many candidates I went through. Well, I could, but I won’t bore you with the details. Let me just say, finding what I considered an exceptional Reyes was NOT an easy task. Honestly, the search could be made into a made-for-TV movie. *snerk* But what I found? Well, here’s a sneak peek to judge for yourself. 🙂 

I did good, yes?

    Yep yep! I have been hooked (read addicted) from “A huge, heartfelt thank-you to:” You done good…Fab–on all counts! Ok. Now I have to say my visual on your Charley is of “Debra Morgan” from “Dexter”. Go figure. But now that I really do have your virtual visual, I’m going with her…Thanks for the laughter and your brilliant writing!!=)

  19. Dina says:

    OMG!OMG! I’m soooooooo hooked. Please keep the the series going strong.

  20. Mary Pat says:

    I think it’s been said, but I also would love to see the Charley books made into movies. The entire concept is so original and, well, kind of mind-blowing at points. It needs to go to film!

  21. Heather says:

    Third Grave Dead Ahead CANNOT be the last book inthe Charley series! It just can’t!! The day I got the third book I couldn’t stop reading it! I read it in less than 12 hours! For a current MBA student it’s hard to find time to relax………….well with the third book i didn’t care about homework or projects or tests i read the entire book the day i got it!!!! So the series can’t be finished! Charley still doesn’t know what she’s truly capable of yet! So when’s the next book coming out? :D:D:D:D

    • Desiree says:

      Heather it’s not the last in the series. Darynda is currently writing Fourth Grave Below My Feet. There is cover artwork on her facebook page. It is due out in spring approx…. I suppose it will depend on when she finishes. Ha 🙂

    • Sarah says:

      I cannot tell you how much I enjoy this series. Heather, I agree with you!! I need the fourth book ASAP 🙂

      I absolutely love Charley…her courage, spunk, and determination. Garrett is amazing, Cookie is hilarious, and Reyes is such an enigma, can’t wait to see what happens next!!!!

      Darynda Jones, this is the best series I’ve read since Hunger Games.

      Keep ’em coming!

  22. Barbara says:

    Okay, it looks like I’m the only one who can tell the truth around here, she is not a charley to me, she’s way to young looking, fuck , I not sure she’s even out of diapers yet, I pictured charley as someone like, mature, yes, her eyes are beautiful, but ,come on, and whats with Rayes? its a great pic. but you cant see him enough to form an opinion on if he’s the right guy or not, yes, he’s hot ,but I would of liked to seen more of his face features, and sense where on the subject, ( I have read all three books) I was hoping for a little MORE of reyes and charley’s relationship in the third book, like it promised! I like the hot stuff, I felt almost cheated out of some kind of compainonship from the two of them, it was almost too much of a set up for the next book, I want satisfaction, we pay good money for these books. maybe ,i should be the one to help critique her writing, I mean no offense, Darynda is a fuckn great writer!

  23. Diane Green says:

    I just got all three of your books. Read them in three days. Just couldn’t put them down.

    Keep them coming, Three of the best books i’ve read
    in a very long life of reading


  24. Denise B. says:

    I have all the books and love Reyes and Charley. But like a previous commenter, I missed the relationship between Charley and the Son of Satan. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed this book tremendously and it answered a lot of questions. But the main couple was kind of off. I understand why but really, Charley afraid of Reyes??? But since this book set up his getting out of prison, maybe the hotness level will increase.
    As for the picture and actors…. I will hold my opinion until a see more….a lot more!
