The Day After Thoughts

Technically Lark was released on February 5 but because most of us are asleep in the  middle of the night, nobody knew about it until yesterday morning. So I'm counting today as the day after release day.
Komal posted on my Facebook wall that I had broken into the top 5k last night! And while Lark is currently sitting at #6,774, it's still exciting to be in the top 10k after one day and being an indie book with no professional "compaigning" or anything.
Currently, it's only available on Kindle but at some point this weekend it should be up on Barnes and Noble. I'm not really sure why they take so much longer to process than Amazon but they do (Amazon takes 12 hours, B&N says up to 72 hours!).
I also received my mock up for my paperback cover and hope to have that available early next week (if not this weekend!).
I've been obsessively checking to see if anyone has posted reviews yet. I kind of had to laugh at myself because it's not like everybody can just drop what they are doing and not only read my book but write a review about it but I'm super excited to see that 6 people have reviewed it so far! And LIKED it which is even cooler! That has to be the best feeling in the world!
I'm overwhelmed with gratitude to everyone who has read, reviewed and spread the word about Lark. I have pretty much been smiling and wanting to jump up and down like a giddy little school girl for the last 24 hours. I'm surviving on very little sleep but you'd never know because I'm just so happy that my book is a BOOK, it's out there and people are reading it! It's an amazing feeling!

I'm taking a break this weekend from writing the sequel because we are going to be in KC for a Yellow Ribbon weekend but it's back to work on Monday and hopefully I can get into the groove and have a first draft finished in the next few months.  I'm very excited to continue Mia's journey!

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."

Paper Flowers

It all started as a game—a game I never lost.
Cami Andrews is a girl on a mission. She’s a girl with a plan.
A three-step plan, to be exact, and it hasn’t failed her yet.
Her best friend Oliver doesn’t approve of the games she plays.
He is a boy unwaveringly loyal. Loyal to a fault, but his patience is running thin.  
When Cami sees Peyton Holmes for the first time she knows that she wants him to be her next conquest, and when Cami sets her sights on something, she never fails. Not in life and certainly not in love. She always gets what she wants, even if she has to adjust her personality a little in the process. It might test her friendship with Oliver, but that’s a chance she’s willing to take.

The "C" Word

It's probably the scariest word out there. At least I can't really think of a single word that effects me as much as the "C" word does. Just 6 little harmless letters strung together and it leaves me completely breathless.
I guess I should probably start at the very beginning.
Last August I went in for my normal yearly exam. My midwife Sue asked me how I was feeling and I was literally just complaining like a little whinebag at the time. I told her I had a super bad cough that wasn't going away no matter how many different kind of over the counter cough medicine I had been taking. Nothing was working and sometimes I would wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air. She felt my throat and said I felt "knotty" so she wanted me to get some labwork done. I asked why and she seemed hesitant to tell me. I told her I was just going to go home and google it and jump to the worse-possible-scenario conclusion. So she told me that it could be just a coup…
