"The world is full of creatures just trying to fit in."

The Rag & Bones Vampire World is made up of The Rag & Bones Vampire Series novels and the Rag & Bones Shorts. The novels are around 50K words and the shorts are around 10K.

The stories are based around the exploits of two vampires, Rag and Bones. Those are nicknames, of course. The novels are set in the present day, where Rag and Bones live in the small Somerset town of Midbury - a completely fictional place. The shorts take years in their history and show a snapshot of their lives at that time.

Rag & Bones: Concealed (Book Two)

Change is unsettling ... but with it comes growth.

School is always tough, but when you’ve been shut away from normal society for most of your life, it’s more than difficult. Add to that the fact that your new ‘uncle’ is a vampire, which you obviously have to keep secret, and that you’re not allowed to use your magical abilities to help you get by, and life can become a little overwhelming.

Flynn is lucky, because she soon makes a friend.

But friends can have secrets too.

Secrets Cover

Rag & Bones: Secrets (Book Three)

Truth is a difficult concept for vampires ... telling it, that is.

If Rag had known that welcoming Flynn into their home would cause so many problems (1) he would’ve said no, (2) he would’ve said no way, and (3) he would’ve said over my dead body. It seems that Flynn’s life is just one big, dangerous secret piled onto another.

Unbelievably, that’s the least of his worries.

It seems an old acquaintance of his is in town, and not someone he cares to become reacquainted with, especially when, at the moment they meet, threats are thrown around like confetti.

He needs to protect those he loves. He’s really not sure how that’s going to pan out.

Could their past hold the answers?

Rag’s on a big night out, but it doesn’t go quite as planned.

Nothing new, then.

1941 Book Cover

$0.99 or equivalent

Rag & Bones Shorts: 1941

World War II and Rag and Bones are in the thick of it, hiding underground in the London sewers while bombs explode above them. Bones doesn’t want to hide any more. He wants to help. Not your typical vampire behaviour, but then, he’s not a typical vampire.

He knows it’s a risk to show his face above ground and not just because of the bombing, but because he looks like a young, fit man who should be on the front line.

Sometimes you have to take risks for what you believe in, because without human blood, surviving as a vampire is a short-term prospect.

Lives change when Rag’s around, and not always for the better.

1978 Book Cover

$0.99 or equivalent
Rag & Bones Shorts: 1978

While Bones attempts to go cold turkey on the blood front, Rag tries his hand at a career - not something he's ever considered since becoming a vampire.

Both of these things are prompted by the new women in their lives, one of whom is perfectly innocent, the other, not so much.

It's up to Rag to discover the truth and Bones isn't too pleased with the outcome.
