This is a story about Mary, number one fan of the hottest cult vampire detective TV show, City By Night... until it becomes all too real.
An accident with the Craft Services truck sends her hurtling into the world of the show, and Mary is thrilled - who wouldn't want to live alongside their favorite TV characters? Unfortunately, living in TV-land isn't all that Mary thought it would be. The charm fades when Mary realizes that the extras still don't speak, the matte paintings don't become real, and all the infuriating flaws in the writing are just amplified when you have to try to interact with the shallow characters. And then, of course, the lead character Leondre DuNoir falls for her!
Sure, fine, he's hot... but he's also a bit, well, poorly written. And his admiration comes with its own set of problems: Antonio, Leondre's psychotic stalker, has a habit of killing off the girls-of-the-week. Not only is Mary disillusioned with what she thought was a lush world until she had to try to maneuver in it, now she's about to be murdered by one of the stupidest clichés in the history of television in a world that, pardon the pun, totally sucks.
A loving satire of the Toronto film industry, vampire-cop television, and what it really means to be a "fan" from award-winning science fiction author J.M. Frey.

Toronto-based J.M Frey (pronounced "fry") is a science fiction and fantasy author, as well as a fanthropologist and pop culture scholar who appears in podcasts, documentaries, and on television to discuss all things geeky through the lens of academia.Review:
"An amazingly FUN read! It breaks the fourth wall in a magical, wonderful way. The writing is fun and light, with just enough humour and romance to keep you turning the pages. It's a short book, but there's a LOT written in those 100-ish pages. This book is unique and refreshing and I really enjoyed every minute of it." --Just a Girl Geek
"Part sassy exposé, part heart-pounding thriller, and all about Mary. THE DARK SIDE OF THE GLASS will drop you into a world where the only thing real is courage. Highly recommended."
-Julie E. Czerneda, author of RIFT IN THE SKY
"With her love bite to the vampire romance genre, J.M. Frey manages a level of delightful satire and female empowerment that Twilight and its ilk never approach."
- Liana K. Ed the Sock, I Hate Hollywood, Ed and Red's Night Party, and FutureCon
"A wryly humorous yet touching romp through the fourth wall!"
-Stephanie Bedwell-Grime, author of The Vampire Next Door
Damn, that was fun!
- Peter Salomon, author of Henry Franks, Flux (September 2012)
The Dark Side of the Glass is a creepy-cool page-turner with many memorable characters. It's a sexy tale of creator trapped inside creation that's at times angsty, often hilarious, and will leave you wanting more.
-Leigh Moore, author
