Defending Mercy and other POV

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. ❤

First AOM Bonus POV

You guys are the best. And thanks to Sonya, I’ve written my first POV of AOM. This POV is probably one of the biggest scenes in the story, but who am I not to give the readers what they want. Be kind, this POV is not edited. But it’s free. 🙂

If you haven’t yet read AOM, don’t read this POV. It’s a big spoiler and ruin some of the fun of stumbling upon it in the story. Priya tells me this scene (at least the crux of it) shows up at 66.6% on the kindle version. I have to wonder just how fitting that really is.

I’ll have another POV in the next day or two from another of our favorite characters. So if you’re not shipping for this guy, have no fear, another POV is near. LOL.

Also, I wanted to thank everyone for their soundtrack choices. I love all kinds of music and have added to my library with your selections.

For this scene, I listened (on repeat) to EVANESCENCE ~ Bring me to life. I know it’s an olde but goodie. But if you read the lyrics, it just seems so fitting for this guy and this scene

.Flynn - character1

Here it is.

Soon very soon…

The question of the day is will AOM be published Friday. The answer is no. But wait. The last word has been written, the book is in editing. I don’t have a date yet when it will finish that process and I’ll have a final look through. But I’m pretty sure it will happen in June barring some catastrophe. And sooner rather that later.

Since, I’m not writing anything at the moment, (I was editing Remember), I went ahead and wrote a POV from the request list from the At Your Mercy group on Goodreads.

Give me a couple of days and I’ll also add another chapter in the Sebastian story as well. Thank guys for being awesome readers and fans of the Cambion series. You guys are the best!

I don’t mean to offend. Something about this picture makes me think of Flynn. So I thought I’d share. Can you guess what it is? LOL

A song on repeat

Often when I’m writing or editing a story, a song gets played on repeat for what feels like hours to my family. I end up with earbuds in, listening to a song and soaking up the feeling I get from it. For today that song has been Lovesong (along with a few others), the cover performed by Adele.

During around the fiftieth time I listened to it, this POV forced itself on me until I wrote it. It’s quick. And I thought I would share it with you.

And btw, my writing partner came across this picture. She thinks this is Mercy. What do you guys think?

So here is the link for the POV.

I’m a giver

Okay so here is the bonus POV from the Cambion series. This was not in the book, WFM. However it takes place during that time period. Or maybe it’s a scene from AOM. I’ll never tell. So enjoy.

Here is the POV. More sweet than hot and spicy. Enjoy.

Hang in there with me…

Writing AOM has been a long journey. Somewhere along the way, I’d lost steam because of the ePiracy. I can’t fully say that I’m that driven writer that I was before as ePiracy which continues to plague me and hundreds of other authors. And I would be lying if I didn’t admit it still affects me.

However, I am determined as ever to finish this series. I’ve come too far to not to. So what is taking so long? Many things, but I often wonder if I’m not procrastinating in small ways. As a reader too, I can say that that when things happen in a book with characters you have grown fond of, you often have a somewhat similar response to that event almost as much as a real life event would.

And I think that what happens in this book is making it hard for me to write. So why do it? Why write such events when technically I don’t have to? And it comes down to that is just how the story was meant to go. And I don’t see the story ever ending unless I stay true to it.

Alas, as I trudge along and try to finish this one, I thought I would write a POV. It’s been a while and you all continue to be so patient with me. This POV is told by Mercy. It was just easier to stay in her head seeing that I’m in her head right now. Maybe I’ll write it from the other POV at some point. Maybe. 😉

Thanks for being such loyal readers. It is your kindness, kind words, and encouragement that keep me going. Thanks for that.

And here is the bonus chapter that takes place after BFM.

A bit of Inspiration

Okay, so my mother has read Remember and Beg for Mercy. She liked Remember better but I won’t tell you guys why until after it’s released. I’ll let you guys make up your mind first. Okay, getting on topic, she was reading a book. (I got my love of reading from her) and I asked what it was. Turned out it was some steamy romance. So, I say steamy huh? And I asked her if she wanted to read my latest book. She was like “new book”, yikes, because I hadn’t told her about it. I mean who tells their mom about the kind of story I wrote unless you already have such a wide open relationship. Well, anyway, I let her read. At about 5%, she gives me the arch brow and says, HOT. At about 80%, she tell me, I didn’t know you knew all of that. Face Flame, lol, which is why you don’t let your mom read stuff like that. In the end, our topic of conversation has expanded. I’m not sure I’m embarrassed, horrified, or amused. Anyway, it’s good to know she’s given it her stamp of approval.

Next order of business. I’ve been slow about POVs. I’ve been focused on Mercy and the guys. It’s been hard to write a POV and take away time from AOM. However, a bit of inspiration came to me. So check this out.

Thanks

I wanted to say thank you to you all for being patient and waiting on Angel of Mercy. It’s still a work in progress, but I am working. For those that are wondering why it’s taking so long, I’ll give you the short version. ePiracy sort of took the wind out of my sails. (Look back to previous post for full story Oct/Nov timeframe) Still, I’m committed to finishing the series, so no worries there.

I’ve written a POV to help with the wait. I’ll try to get out another chapter of Sebastian soon.

So here it is, a bonus POV from WFM.
