Let's start at the very beginning

Because, after all, it's a very good place to start!

Here I am, on the verge of publishing my first ever novel and I am FrEaKiNg OuT (just a little bit)!

So I decided I better get busy promoting my little book-baby.

It's kind of crazy to think that last February I was woken up from a vivid dream, the kind of dream that makes you think "that would be a good book". I have dreams like this all the time but I usually just roll over and go back to sleep. But not that night. I laid in bed and I couldn't stop thinking about it so I finally got up, found a pen and an old notebook and scribbled down the entire thing. The next morning I started brainstorming and that night I wrote the first 4 chapters.

I stayed up late every night for the next 3 months and finally in June 2012, my first draft was complete.
Then the revisions started. With the help of some amazing women, I can officially say that LARK is almost ready for publication.

How does March 14th sound? ;)

Stay tuned for more details!

Today only! 80+ giveaways for paperbacks, ebooks, and more!

    Hello! Welcome to my page! I'm terrible about updating it but my goal is to do better this year so when Lizzy Ford came up with the Spring into Romance Facebook Hop I jumped right on!  What a fantastic idea, right?! Lots of new authors to meet and prizes to win!  For my giveaway, I decided to giveaway one of my books that is particularly close to my heart,   Pieces of Me Aria Watkins’s life was on the perfect path, or so she thought. She and Sean had big plans for their future together. They were going to go off to college, get married, and have 2.5 kids. But when tragedy strikes, it destroys the heart of Aria and she's afraid she'll never be the same.  Heartbroken and confused, Aria starts college a completely different person. She hardly recognizes the broken girl she's become, but she can't seem to find the strength to put back together the pieces either.  Enter Holden Whitmore.  He's charming, considerate, and he's

Nightingale: Spellbinding YA book about witches

Today I received an email letting me know that NIGHTINGALE has been included in a  recently published wiki: Spellbinding YA Books About Witches!  If  I'm honest, Nightingale is my favorite out of the books set in the Lark universe so I was very excited to see it getting some love finally! Here's what they said about NIGHTINGALE:  "At #3  is "Nightingale" by Erica Cope. Wren Fairchild has no memory of who she is or how she ended up in a Light Elf kingdom. She eventually meets Greyson St Clair, the Consul to Queen Mia of  Álfheimr . He doesn't trust Wren, but in order to learn more about her true nature, he'll have to help her regain her memories. Together, the pair must travel to the one place that can reveal the truth about the past, unraveling shocking secrets along the way." You can check out the rest of the list here !  You can purchase your own copy of NIGHTINGALE here !

Book Signing!

So I'm beyond excited to tell you that I will be having a book signing! It's a local signing in the nearby town of Webb City, MO at Minerva's on Main street. My friend Mary actually talked to the owner about it last month and then my husband delivers there and he also talked to the owner so I knew it was a possibilty but nothing was set yet. So today while the girls were in ballet, I decided to swing in for a drink (PS I got the Espresso Milkshake and it was a little piece of Heaven. Just sayin'. You must try it!). On a whim I decided to ask the girl making my drink if Tom was in and he was! So I introduced myself and asked him about the possibility of doing a book signing there. I let him read the blurb of Lark and he was interested! He gave me his wife's number, and this evening we set a date and time! June 8th from 11am-1pm! I'll post more details when it gets closer but if you can, mark your calendars and come see me!
