    Summary

    This is a deleted scene from the published novel The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker by Lauren James

    “Congratulations, new kid. Welcome to the afterlife.”

    What if death is only the beginning?

    When Harriet Stoker dies after falling from a balcony in a long-abandoned building, she discovers a world of ghosts with magical powers – shape-shifting, hypnosis, even the ability to possess the living.

    Felix, Kasper, Rima and Leah welcome her into their world, eager to make friends with the new arrival. Yet Harriet is more interested in unleashing her own power, even if it means destroying everyone around her. But when all of eternity is at stake, the afterlife can be a dangerous place to make an enemy.

    Summary

    Here is a short story about Katherine and Matthew from The Next Together in one of their other lives, set in Medieval times, inspired by this picture: https://gallery.mailchimp.com/cce4f3cd1384d48901a601fcd/images/15d1f35c-2992-4f4f-adf8-10ed1246f88e.jpg
    In the story, Kate is a midwife with a secret place in the woods where she keeps her herbs and medicines, because the villagers are suspicious of magic and witches. Matthew is the village hangman, mainly because I just couldn't resist a 'Matthew Galloway' pun.

    Summary

    This story takes place in an alternative universe where Lowrie and Shen find themselves pretending to date, in order to investigate the secrets going on around them. It doesn't fit into the existing timeline of the book, and so it can be read without having read the book. It is a complete story.

    Summary

    This deleted scene is from the timeline set in 2039. In this version, Matt is suspicious of Kate, and thinks she's spying on him. That plotline was cut out of a very early draft, which meant that this scene didn't fit with the story any more. I still really love it though, so I'm sharing it now!

    This is a deleted scene not published in the book.

    Summary

    This is a deleted scene not published in the book. This scene was cut out because nothing much happens in it – but it's very sweet, so I wanted to share it! In it, Katy is in disguise as a boy, working as Matthew's manservant and note-taker. Unfortunately, she can't write, which turns out to be a problem when you're working for a journalist.......
