Rockstar 03 Amplify

By: Anne Mercier

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for your continued support of the Rockstar series. You all are seriously amazing. I didn't expect the series to take off like it has, not at all. I wasn't prepared, but I'm getting there. 

While Falling Down and Blush are light-hearted with very little—if any—drama and angst, I thought I should let you know that Amplify has some of both. Neither Sera nor Cage have had an easy life and we learn so much about them and what makes them who they are in this book. I didn't have a favorite book boyfriend from this series—until now. I absolutely love Cage and I hope you will too. He not only stole Sera's heart, but he stole mine as well.

For those who've asked, yes! Each character will get their own story. This means I'll be writing this series for years as there are so many. At the end of this book you'll find tentative* publishing dates for 2015 and 2016 as well as a link to my website where you can find other information such as signings and how to purchase signed paperback copies. Also part of the reason why the dates and titles are subject to change is the fact that the characters seem to have taken on a life of their own and demand, without notice, more of their voices be heard. Such is the case with Jesse and Lucy and I imagine Sera and Cage will do so as well. *All dates are subject to change without notice.

Also, I wanted you all to know that the books will not be available for preorder until maybe around the September/October time frame. I would like to get far enough ahead in the publishing schedule that I don't have to worry about Amazon's preorder clauses (which suck). After that, the books should be available for preorder. Until then, I'll have them out on the release dates listed unless otherwise specified. If there are any changes to the publishing or signing schedules, those changes will be announced in my newsletter and you can sign up for that here.

There's been some unhappiness expressed with the way the books end and this saddens me. I feel like I need to explain how this series works for those who don't quite understand and are getting frustrated. Hopefully this will help clear up any confusion.

First, I have to point out that this is a series and that means that the series thread of the books will be told throughout many books. If I tried to pack the entire series overlay into one book, it would end up being longer than all of the Harry Potter books put together.

I'll use this crocheting analogy... Imagine a crocheted blanket as the Rockstar series. Each row is a book. The links holding each row (book) together is the overall series thread. While each couple will get their own book (row) and each book (row) will be unique in overall feel due to the personalities of the hero and heroine, part of the series thread will also be woven into that book and then will continue on into the next book, and the next, and the next tying it all in a pretty little bow until the series ends.

I really hope this helps explain things. If there are any other questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to send me an email at [email protected] at any time. I'd love to hear from you!

Hugs and love,

Anne xoxo

To my mom for teaching me about the love of music.

From the nights when we were little and listened to the Bee Gees and Tom Jones to road trips with the 50s and 60s oldies. I remember vinyl records, 8-tracks, and cassette tapes of artists ranging from Elvis and Alabama to Olivia Newton-John, Rod Stewart, and Elton John. I remember doing aerobics to fun music and our "cleaning Saturdays" with whatever music fit the bill for that day roaring from the stereo speakers.

Mom, you helped shape my love of such a diverse range of music and for that I will always be grateful.

I’M SINGING ALONG to the radio with Lucy, happy and laughing, as we head back from vacation with her family when we pull up to the gates at my house. Now, as a ten-year-old girl, I normally wouldn’t admit this, but I missed my mom and dad. They are my best friends and the fact that they spoil me might be why.

I’m excited to see them. It’s been ten days. We had a great time in Florida at Disney World and Epcot and all that. The teacup ride made me sick, though. Joey, Lucy’s brother and my annoying cousin, made fun of me for the rest of the day until Lucy socked him one when her parents weren’t looking.

I had the most fun when we made our way down to Miami and stayed with Grandpa Giovanni. We swam and ate and played until we couldn’t anymore. I was almost sad to go. Almost.
