Xander, Book 2

Posted July 21, 2017 by Anne Mercier in 2017, Anne Mercier, Rockstar Series (ages 17+), Xander2 / 6 Comments

As you all know, the book has been delayed. As a courtesy to you all so I won’t disappoint you again, I won’t set a date until it’s in the hands of my editor. Then and only then will I post an announcement of the release date. Sorry for any confusion.

I want to assure you, I’m working diligently on Xander and Tera’s book… and it shouldn’t be too much longer.

Thanks for your patience.

As for my health, the kidney infection is finally gone. Whew. It makes a difference in my day-to-day energy level and if I could, I’d dance a jig… but that’d suck all the energy for the day  lol   I’d rather spend that on writing.  Things are slow with kidney disease and there’s minimal improvement in my numbers but, as my doctor said, it’s going to take time. I want so much to get back on track and not be so exhausted all the time… I’m figuring it out with diet, medication, vitamins and supplements so, again, that takes time.  But I will figure it out! I promise.

Hugs!

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT – XANDER: Book 2, The Present

Posted June 15, 2017 by Anne Mercier in 2017, Anne Mercier, Xander2 / 12 Comments

You’ve all been so amazing and supportive of me… I’m gonna give you something in return.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT
XANDER: Book 2, The Present
(Rockstar Book 10)
©2017 Anne Mercier

“I just wanted to force her to talk to me. To look at me. To feel me. Me! Xan. Her husband. Not the drummer for Falling Down. Not the fucked up kid who pushed her away. I wanted her to see me, the man who loved her with every breath he took. She got so upset, I left. But I went back the next day. And the next. I brought her candy. Flowers. I wrote her poems. I wrote her love letters. Finally, I just went there… with just me. I’d knock on the door and she’d answer… I’d kiss her softly and whisper how much I loved her. Then I’d leave.”

“But you went back,” Nicole sighs wistfully.

“Every. Single. Day.”

“For how long?” Summer asks.

“As long as it took.”

Summer frowns. “For what?”

“For her to say it back. It was then she saw me. She felt me. We worked through all of our shit and I saw her as much as I could, we talked every day, but when Lucy married Jesse, I saw what I was missing with Tera. I wanted that. I wanted it every day. So I asked her to come to me on Christmas three years ago. She didn’t answer. I asked her again the year before this last one and she said yes. I’ve been waiting and she’s been working damn hard to overcome—everything. All of it. She’s almost there. We’ve still got some work to do, but I have no doubt in my mind she’ll be there soon,” I tell them, then sit back in the chair, finally seeing them. There are mixed expressions. Grief. Sadness. Wistfulness. Determination. Anger—Sera’s so angry. I know we’ll be having a talk later, likely with Batman as well.

XANDER: BOOK 2, THE PRESENT

Posted June 12, 2017 by Anne Mercier in 2017, Anne Mercier, Xander2 / 19 Comments

You’ve probably gotten a notice from Amazon that Xander’s release has been delayed. I’m sorry for the delay. I didn’t explain what was going on, so I’ll do that now.  As soon as it’s in the hands of my editor, I’ll post an announcement of a release date.
 
I’ve been diagnosed with stage 3A kidney disease and I also have a kidney infection as well. After ten days of antibiotics, my infection hasn’t cleared up, so now I’m on three weeks of two different antibiotics in hopes that it’ll clear up completely. If it doesn’t, in four weeks I’ll have to have a port-a-cath placed and receive IV antibiotics every day for I don’t know how long. I’m exhausted. I could sleep 24/7 if allowed. Today, Monday, June 12, is the first time in about 5 days that I feel well enough to get some actual work done.
 
I’m sorry for the delay… it’s only a few days but it still sucks. I hope the book is worth the extra wait.
 
Thanks much <3
Anne xoxo

BLURB:

She was my everything and without her I was nothing.

When we reunited, my heart became whole. My life had meaning. We loved fiercely and completely. Life was perfect.

She wants me to live my dreams and I want the same for her. We both know our love is strong enough to survive time and distance.

Then the unthinkable happens and nothing will ever be the same again.

EXCERPT:
Lucy steps up. “Xan, Xan, Xan. You got some ‘splaining to do.”
 
I knew this was coming and I have no idea what I’m going to say. How do I explain to them what’s all happened and why I kept Tera to myself?
 
Shit. Meggie, Nicole, and Sera step up, Summer standing behind them. All of them holding the stance of a woman with a severe attitude.
 
I guess I’ve gotta wing it.
 
“Life is like a box of chocolates,” I begin.
 
“How very Forrest Gump of you,” Meggie teases, and not in a pleasant way.
 
I sigh. “Would you just listen and save your comments for after?”
 
Lucy lifts a brow. Sera crosses her arms. Nicole rests her hand on her cocked hip. Meggie pops her gum.
 
I am so fucked.
 
“Life is like a box of chocolates. You open the box and there are so many to choose from. You pick through them one by one trying to find the one that you absolutely love, the one you can’t live without. But sometimes, you find that favorite, that love, on the first try. That’s what happened with Tera and me. Hint: The square ones are the caramels.”
 
Lucy smirks. “So you’re saying that Tera is your caramel in a box of otherwise shitty chocolates.”
 
I nod, head bobbing. “That’s exactly it.”
 
Sera laughs. “Well who are we to tell him the caramels aren’t the best? I love those suckers.”
 
“But,” Meggie interjects, “why keep this love of caramels a secret? Why not share that love with the rest of us?”
 
Xan looks down. “Sometimes, when you love something so much and you are away from it for so long, you don’t know whether or not that caramel still loves you back. And sometimes you just don’t want to share that caramel. You just want to hold on as tight as you can just in case it’s the last time.”
 
Nicole lets out a scoff. “We could have been here for you. Helped you through the caramel melting times. We’d have helped you reshape it and put it in the ‘fridge to hold its true form.”
 
I nod again. “I know, but I didn’t want your pity. I didn’t want your sympathy. This was just something I needed to do on my own. Sera deals with her Cage issues on her own, never sharing them.”
 
“That’s true, I do. But you knew Cage and I were married,” Sera retorts.
 
I sigh.
 
“And I told you about my past,” Lucy offers. “The worst parts of it.”
 
“You have, but not in detail like you shared with Jesse and I’d never want you to unless it’s what you were ready for and you’re still not ready to share that, just as I wasn’t ready to share about Tera,” I explain.
 
“You ready now?” Summer asks.
 
I nod. “It’s a long story. I won’t share Tera’s details. That’s for her to do. But here’s what happened…”
