How many books… ?

Posted February 12, 2016 by Anne Mercier in 2016, Anne Mercier, Rockstar Series (ages 17+), Signings, Truths Series (NC17) / 4 Comments

Hi everyone!

I’ve been getting asked a lot of the same questions lately so I figured I’d get them addressed to save time and confusion. 

First: I get asked how many books are in the Rockstar series, how long it’s going to last, if it’s going to end anytime soon?   The answer?  How many books in the series as whole numbers (not including novellas or short stories), at least 11.  Here’s what I have planned so far, but somewhere along the line I see another Lucy/Jesse story as well as another Sera/Cage story-though Sera/Cage may be addressed in the spinoff Russo Famiglia series(No idea when that’s going to be started).

Published
Falling Down-1

Blush-2
A Very Xander Christmas-2.5
Amplify-3
Interlude-4
Ballad – 5
Lullabye-6
A Very Xander Christmas 2 – 6.5

Still To Come
Kadence (Jace’s story) – 7
Refrain (Ethan’s story) – 8
A Very Xander Christmas 3 – 8.5
Xander – 9
Strings (Kennedy’s story) – 10
Melody (Trace & Meggie’s story) – 11
There may be another Christmas short story in there somewhere and, as noted above, another Jesse/Lucy story, but as of now, those are the working titles.

Second: Will the Burners guys get their own stories?  Yep. They’ll all get a story after the Rockstar series is finished.

Third: When is Damian’s story coming out?  I don’t have a date as of yet. Whenever I wrap up the Rockstar series and begin the Russo Famiglia series. I’m anticipating 2018.

Fourth: Are you writing more Truths books?  Yes, I am. As a matter of fact, I’ll be starting on the second book very soon. If you aren’t familiar with the Truths series, the first book in the series is Whispered Truths, Kyle and Myah’s story, and is currently on sale for $0.99 (shameless plug). There’ll be four, possibly five, Truths books.

Fifth: When is Xander’s story coming out? This is the question I get asked the most and my answer, as of now, is early 2017. I would like to take a little more time with his book as there’s more to his storyline than I think you’re anticipating–not everything is daisies and roses for our Xander–as much as he tries to make us think otherwise. Stay tuned…

Sixth: What signings are you going to be at this year? A LOT. haha  No joke. I am doing my best to get around to everywhere you all want me to be and I’ll continue to work on that. If there’s anywhere you’d like me to visit, you can always email me anytime at Anne @ AnneMercierAuthor.com (no spaces).

She used to be perky, fun, and full of life—everything I hated about girls and their bullshit exterior. People called her bubbly; I called her “fake-as-hell.”

The edgy, dark, lonely girl in front of me was not the Olivia Brennan I knew from high school—far from it, actually. I knew the story—the whole town knew the story, we witnessed it all. It happened in the blink of an eye and the girl we knew was gone.

But I refuse to watch it anymore—I can’t stand it. I’m going to fix it—fix her. It’s time I showed Olivia her way back…

Back to the girl she used to be.

Excerpt from The Way Back To Me (Back To Me Book 1)

Posted February 11, 2016 by Anne Mercier in 2016, Anne Mercier, Teaser, TWBTM / 8 Comments

Excerpt from The Way Back To Me

It’s so peaceful here. The birds chirping. The sun shining. The squirrels running around looking for chestnuts that have fallen off the old tree on the property line. If I lift my eyes, I can just see the edges of the leaves blowing in the wind. Lifting my head takes too much work. I don’t even raise myself up when I drink from the bottle in my hand—and because I don’t, the tequila runs down the side of my face and wets the neckline of my dress. My black dress. The dress I wore when they put them all in the ground—when they put my Danny in the ground.

I’d waited. I went home and waited. After an hour, I came back. I don’t want to be anywhere else. Here, I feel close to him. The sun’s been shining all day reminding me how easily the world around me moves along. But I don’t. I can’t. So I lay here unsure as to how long I’ve been out here. Minutes? Hours? I don’t care and the alcohol is making it even easier not to.

I turn and stare at the etched words on the smooth marble surface. The pain in my heart is unbearable. I reach out to trace the letters, my breath coming faster with each one. Panic sets in as I admit to myself what I’ve been unable to: I am alone. I’m still feeling. This is unacceptable.

I take another gulp of tequila, noting it’s over half gone and I’m still not numb enough, so I take another, the burn warming my belly.

I wake to the feel of cool raindrops falling from the sky, soaking my clothes and hair.

I’m still drunk and I can barely keep my eyes open despite the fact that I’m shivering.

Strong arms lift me from the ground. I clumsily resist, swatting at whoever it is disturbing my serenity.

“Shh. You’re safe, Kitten. I’ve got you,” a masculine voice says. It’s familiar but I can’t place the owner. It’s the same voice that carried me home from the dock two days ago, and the beach two days before that where I lay alone in my grief—before my friends were laid to rest here. Today I had them.

“Don’t wanna go home,” I complain.

“You can’t keep doing this to yourself, Livvy,” he whispers.

A traitorous tear slips from my eye, blending in with the raindrops cascading down my face. I wrap my arms around his neck when he starts walking.

“I have nothing left,” I whisper.

He sighs. “You have a whole hell of a lot left. You need to look past your pain and try to live.”

I shake my head.

“This isn’t doing you any good. You’re not only making yourself sick, but your mom too. She and your dad are so worried they’ve got the whole town looking for you,” the voice tells me softly.

“Great.” I’ll continue to be the topic of everyone’s gossip. Can’t they mind their own damn business and just leave me to grieve?

“You need to stop this,” he tells me again.

“They’re all gone,” I admit, showing this faceless man who’s been my unidentified savior what hurts the most.

“They are,” he admits with a nod, the stubble on his jawline rubbing against myforehead. “But you’re here. You’re alive.”

“I don’t want to be.”

He nods again and his arms tighten around me as he continues to walk steadily toward what I assume is my home. “I get that. But do you want to put your mother through the kind of pain you’re feeling right now?”

His soft question belies the harshness it carries with it. That’s not what I want. I don’t want to hurt my mom. I just want this pain to go away.

He walks up the steps and the front door to my house opens. I can smell homemade apple pie and the lemon soap my mom likes to use to clean.

“Where did you find her?” my dad asks as my mom touches my forehead. I keep myeyes closed. I don’t want to see the pity or anguish on her face. I’ve seen it enough.

“The cemetery,” my savior confesses. “Tequila was her drink of choice today.”

Traitor.
