Teaser from In the Shadows (Lark #2)

Disclosure: This is still a work in progress BUT I haven't blogged in a while so I thought I owed you guys! This excerpt could of course be changed and will of course be edited eventually but I hope you can look past all of that and that it makes you smile. :)
Gotta love Mia....

Grey just shakes his head no and goes back to ripping his roll into shreds. I’m not going to lie, that kind of irritates me. Those rolls are freakin’ delicious and he’s just wasting it.

“I’m guessing we’re working the same shifts again this weekend?” I ask.

“Of course,” Grey looks up at me. “Why wouldn’t we?

“I was just checking.” And trying to make conversation to avoid any unnecessary awkward silences, while at the same time trying to distract myself from the way you are viciously mutilating that buttery roll of goodness.

Jacoby’s laughter echoes from across the cafeteria and I know without a doubt that he heard my thoughts. I look up and return his smile with a shrug. What can I say? I really like those rolls.

    1. I think it would be terribly difficult to censor your thoughts constantly which definitely sets Mia up for some pretty embarrassing times and I love writing them! It's so fun!

    1. There isn't a "set in stone" date but it will be out later this year. When I am finished writing it (which should be by the end of the month) I will have a more definite date. :)

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 Ãlfheimr. 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…
