Defending Mercy and other POV

30 Jul

Hey everyone. So here is the other POV for those shipping (cheering) for the other guy. If you’ve read AOM then you know this was not easy to write. Brings up bad memories for me. Still, this one goes out to Michele. I hope this brightens her day along with yours.

I have to admit he’s one of my favorite guys in the series. The others being Flynn, Sebastian and Paul. LOL. I’ve been thinking a lot about the next book in this series. My head should really be with Ethan, Keller or Kalen. (Did you see Keller from Alliance in the AOM?) The stories run concurrently and will eventually meet. But you don’t have to read both series to enjoy.

But I spent the morning writing the next book in my head. I have typed a few chapters. The heart knows what it wants to write. And I firmly believe one shouldn’t fight it. Otherwise, you just might write crap.

I know a lot of you aren’t happy with Mercy or you’re not happy with me. AOM was probably the hardest I’ve had to write for many reasons. I spent a lot of time with Lindsey Stirling and her self titled album on repeat while drawing all the emotions to write this one. Crystallize, Song of the Caged Bird, Transcendence and Shadows to name a few. In fact, I have Shadows (probably the most upbeat of the four songs) on now while I write this blog post.

Those of you not happy with Mercy, just remember, she was sixteen when this story began and had not ever had a relationship before. She’s going to make a lot of mistakes along the way that many of you who’ve lived a little longer, seen more, or had a relationship before might not understand. Be patient with us as we take you on this journey.

For of you that aren’t happy with me by the turn of events. I ask for further patience. Everything happens for a reason.


Here is the link to the POV

Thanks for the music you guys are the tweeting me. I love Booknut’s recommendation of Fear the Fever by Digital Daggers. I have no doubt this will be on my playlist for the next book in the Cambion series. I also love the lyrics to “No Mercy” by Sick Puppies recommended by Rachel (i still haven’t been able to find it to listen to yet). Thanks guys. Oh, and thanks Michele and the others who contributed tot he Soundtrack thread on Goodreads group.

That’s all for now. Later until next time, lol. ❤

    Thanks for the Bonus POV! 🙂
    Maybe this song has already been mentioned because it’s quite fitting. My thoughts keep going back to AOM (and the last crucial scene) when I listen to ‘Anthem of the Angels’ by Breaking Benjamin- and it always rips out my heart anew.
