Sometime in the wee hours of the morning for me (Central time–probably like 2 or 3 am I’m gonna guess) I’m gonna hit publish… maybe a little later if, as I’m reviewing, more words come to me. You know how I am. But… sometime tomorrow Xander 2 shall be yours–if they publish it, that is. You know, with the holiday and all. Sigh.
It will be initially published on all retailers – Amazon, iBooks, BN, Kobo–for THREE days only. Then, after it’s been on those sites for 3 days, it will be moved solely to Amazon and into KU. — so probably Thursday-ish it’ll be in KU.
(PS I hate that I depend on Amazon so much. Bastards. )
Xander: Part 2, The Present (Rockstar Book 14)
Anne is locked away in the cabana with Javier working with beta girls to help perfect Xander 2 so it’s the best it can be. It’s going to take a few days more for it to get there but it’ll be well worth the wait.. Also, Anne’s going to work on making sure the character chart is in the book for those who reference it; and a special group of ladies are helping get the character glossary perfected to be put into the book. Just a few more days…ls to help perfect Xander 2 so it’s the best it can be. It’s going to take a few days more for it to get there but it’ll be well worth the wait..

I am still being asked: When is Xan Book 2 coming out?
Well, folks… it’s like this: This isn’t just anybook I’m working on. You all know this. This is Xander and Tera that I’m working on now. Remember: I have to make sure to tie up all the loose ends because, honestly, I want their happily ever after to be complete with this book which means no novellas for them as I’m reaching the end of the series. And think of all the details I have to make sure are correct from all the novels(7), novellas(1), and short stories(5) written– this takes time.
I’m not making excuses, merely letting you know I’m working on it at a pace that feels right for me and the story.
I will not rush to finish this book.
If I did that, it wouldn’t have all the “feels” in it because I would be writing it just to finish it and not putting my soul into it. That’s not fair to the characters and, honestly, it’s not fair to me because I try very hard to put out the best book I can.
I don’t have a date and won’t announce one until the first draft is complete.
As I can only write so fast, I’d like to–once again–ask for your patience.
To be kept up to date on all announcements, keep following this page, subscribe to my newsletter, follow me on social media, join the AM Famiglia group on Facebook where you’ll get all the information PLUS exclusive content. It’s an active group and one filled readers who’ve become friends and, even, family.
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.
“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.
