Silence…

Silence is not always golden. I think I’ve finally done it with AOM. My WTF endings have finally silenced the crowd. Not sure how I feel about that. 😦

However, for those of you left stunned, I have a POV ready. I swear I promised one a while back but here it is.

Updates and a POV

I hope everyone summer is going or went well. Mine has been busy, busy. Updates, writing is going slowly. I hope once school resumes, I’ll have more time to devote to writing.

Through the Lens, the audio book which is currently in the final stages of production, should be released fairly soon. Beg for Mercy, audio book, on the other hand has reached some stumbling blocks. Not sure how long the delay will be there. The producer of that book has had some set backs.

My VERY adult romance book received a cover update.

Assets F1

Pretty sexy huh? Hopefully, it will convey just how smexy the book really is, lol.  😉

But the real reason why I’m posting today is to release another POV from AOM. This one is dedicated to Suzanne. It is the prequel to AOM. Have you read the book and wondered what happened during those two weeks between WFM & AOM? Well, here is your answer. The POV ran longer than I intended, but what don’t I do for the fans of the Cambion series.

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.

Thanks and thanks again

I have the best readers ever. You guys are the BEST. It’s always unnerving when a new book is released. You wonder how everyone will take it. I was especially nervous considering all the events but you guys have really blown me way with your reviews. I thank you all double. I appreciate all of you who have taken time to post reviews on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. (If you love an author, you should do it. Post a couple line review on seller’s sites. It means more than you can imagine.)

And I plan to post a POV from AOM very soon. So be on the lookout.

For now, I’ve posted another chapter of the Sebastian story. Sorry it took me so long, but I’d been working on AOM.

Sebastian1

Thanks again for all your support. And here is the link. (Chapter 7)

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?

Audray II

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.
