New Shadow World Extra: Reclamation

Happy Friday, my dear readers!  To celebrate the Autumnal Equinox (or maybe just because the impending Fall has me feeling frisky), I finally, FINALLY finished this Extra, which my Patrons got to read several days ago.  

This Extra is meant as a sort of sequel to the last one I released, and it’s a sort of “bridge fic” between Book 7 and Book 8, to get all the characters and the overall universe where I want it to start off the last book.  It’s meant to be similar in spirit to “Even in the Rain,” therefore, just from Miranda’s point of view and a bit more definitive in where things stand.

New Shadow World Extra: Even in the Rain

At long last, time for a new Shadow World Extra.  

This story is the first of a planned series of Extras that will delve into the 20-year period between the end of SHADOW RISING and the beginning of Book 8.  

“Even in the Rain,” in fact, takes place about four years after the climax of SHADOW RISING.  The Tetrad’s world has changed since that terrible night, and though some have found peace in the aftermath, others have found only a waking nightmare that never seems to end.  Can they find a way through together before the war claims another casualty?

Fair warning…to quote one of my beloved Beta readers, “You owe me a box of Kleenex.”

Content warning:  Discussions of sexual assault, trauma, and post-traumatic stress.

Hey all!  I’ve had a couple of requests to list where exactly on the Shadow World timeline the stories in Met by Midnight fall, so, here’s the full timeline of the series…including the titles of upcoming books 7 and 8, just in case you were curious.

The Job Interview
Strange Fire
Only You
Wrecking Ball

The Mission (happens during Queen of Shadows, just after Miranda “dies”)

The Space Between
A Lovely Way to Burn
The Big Bad Wolf

The Chosen One and Mileage Report could happen any time between Shadowflame and Shadowbound; they didn’t have a specific moment in the story, but were more slice-of-life.

Shadow’s Fall

Of Shadow Born


Cue the Rain

Shadow Rising (Book 7)
Lady of Shadows (Book 8)

With her Shadow World novels, Dianne Sylvan introduced readers to a cast of complicated, powerful, nerdy vampires, Witches, and Elves who populate the nocturnal reaches of our world. Set in Austin, Texas, the series follows singer Miranda Grey as she becomes Queen of the South and she, her partner David, and their friends become embroiled in a midnight war for the fate of their kind.

Now, Sylvan offers a collection of “DVD extras” – supplemental scenes, short stories, character studies, and other fun pieces to add to the novels. Find out what happened the night before Miranda and David met; how other celebrities feel about Miranda Grey’s idiosyncratic lifestyle; what life is like for a long-suffering member of the Haven staff; and many more.

This collection features EIGHT all-new, never before published pieces – and, as a bonus, the first chapter of the as-yet-untitled seventh novel of the series.

Shadow World Extra: Order Form

Just for fun I made a much cruder version of this last year and thought I’d update it to reflect current circumstances at the Haven (and my slightly better grasp on graphic design).

I had this idea that there must be concierge-like businesses in the Shadow World contracted to do the shopping for these busy, eccentric nerds of the night.  Sure, the household staff could manage it, but it seems more efficient to outsource everyday errands to professional shoppers.  Naturally if for some reason the online order form wasn’t working it stands to reason someone would leave out a list for everyone to jot down what they’re running low on.  I think the rest is pretty self-explanatory.
