    Episode 22: Short Stories, Vol. 4

    Thank you so much, friends, for coming with us on this journey! We want to send all of our love to Donna and her family, please take a look at the novel collection available below and consider purchasing, if you can. Today Ana and Chelsea sit down to discuss the final three patreon shorts (for now!) and reflect on what the Beyond books and this project means to each of us.

    Beyond HEA shorts: 6th Sense, Makhai, Diplomacy (Sector Three Style) & Zombies

    Beyond HEA shorts: 6th Sense, Makhai, Diplomacy (Sector Three Style) & Zombies

    This week Ana, Chelsea and Baby Outlaw laugh and gurgle their way through a few more of the Kit Rocha Beyond the HEA shorts. This week we focus on four stories set in Sector One after Ashwin.

    6th Sense Ashwin and Kora wrestle with all the unknowns around their baby.

    Makhai In this unsettling short, we get the POV of Samson, another Makhai who is watching over Ashwin and Kora and may or may not be as well calibrated as he thinks he is.

    Diplomacy Sector Three Style: Gideon and Six share lemonade and discuss the weight of leadership and the power of loyalty. And we like Gideon just adore the kind of leader Six is growing up to be.

    Zombies Laurel and Zeke, play a game together late at night and have a surprisingly emotional friendship breakthrough.

    We will be back in two weeks to discuss High Priestess, Girls Night Out, and Gia.

    Episode 20: Ivan

    Episode 20: Ivan

    We're back, friends, with our final full-length installment for a little bit. Ivan is the third novel in the Gideon's Riders books, and our last official novel for the moment. Stay tuned, though, because we've still got several short story episodes and an AMA with the author duo Bree and Donna all about the process of writing these books we've spent the last year diving in to!

    This week, we dig into our most Regency-style romance to date, the forbidden romance between bodyguard Ivan and princess Maricela. We discuss found and biological families, the ways in which we talk about how to value life, and the importance and validity of love as a lasting legacy. As always, it was a blast, and we hope you have as much fun listening as we did recording!

    Episode 19: Deacon

    Episode 19: Deacon

    We're back, friends! This week, we continue our Sector One adventures with Deacon (a book we all know should really have been called Ana!) We dig even deeper into last week's discussion of creating a theocratic community, as well as our love of Kit Rocha's reformed assassins and the alluring overlap between tattoo artists Del and Ace. It was a fantastic conversation, and we hope y'all listening to it as much as we did having it!

    Just a heads up: Chelsea's new little at-home helper/intrepid Beyond the Sectors Infant Correspondant makes the occasional contribution, but this should be the last episode in which that's an issue (god willing and the creek don't rise)!

    Episode 18: Ashwin

    Episode 18: Ashwin

    Welcome, friends, to the brand new(ish) world of Sector One! This week, we launch into the world of Gideon and his infamous Rider's, the soldiers and saviors of Sector One. We had such an amazing conversation this episode, we had a hard time keeping it around the hour mark!

    We hit on our feelings about emotionally cold heroes, the role that religion plays in worldbuilding, and the deeply complicated man that is Gideon Rios. We see some familiar faces, and talk about what it feels like to be reading this book after the hugely climactic series end of the O'Kane books. We hope you have as much fun listening as we did talking.

    Just a heads up: Chelsea's new little at-home helper/intrepid Beyond the Sectors Infant Correspondant makes a bit of noise in the first 15 minutes or so. It calms down after that, and we did the best we could to clean it up, but just as a heads up!

    Episode 17: Beyond Forever

    Episode 17: Beyond Forever

    This is the second (and currently last) book in the O'Kane for Life novella series, and our final stop with all the favorites we'e gotten to know over the last dozen books. But never fear! We're moving on to Gideon and Sector One, an entirely new world of adventure.
    But first Ana and Chelsea discuss our ultimate Lex and Dallas story, a novella composed of flashbacks covering the beginnings of a relationship between the people we now know as the reigning king and queen of Sector Four.
    Chelsea and Ana talk through the joy of getting to know a well-loved character's backstory, the struggle to imagine what it would have been like reading the books knowing what we learn in this novella, and an incredibly poignant reminder that, occasionally, it's good to remember how our heroes can serve as other people's villains.
