In the Shadows Contest!

Last night I officially finished writing IN THE SHADOWS the sequel to LARK.

*happy dance*

(feel free to join me)

(ya know ya wanna!)





Releasing Oct 1st---->That's just ONE month away!

I'm so excited about this installment of Lark's story. Well, I think I'm equal parts excited and scared out of my mind that it won't live up to your expectations. But I think that's pretty normal, right? (I hope!)
Since the editing part of the process is now in full swing, I'll start sharing teasers soon and in the mean time, because I'm just so excited to have officially typed THE END that I think a little game is in order! Who's in?

In this book Lark encounters an inscription that is written in the ancient language of the Light Elves and of course, she can't read it! (Silly girl, maybe next time you'll pay better attention when the schmexy Greyson St. Clair is trying to educate you)

I was thinking that the first person who can successfully translate the following passage should get a Lark keychain OR necklace, what do you think?

The necklaces are pretty cute, right?


You wanna play?

Okay, here you go:

A teeny tiny sneak peek into In the Shadows and some swag! Sweet deal!

Put your answer in the comments either on this post or on Facebook! 
Good luck!

(PS this was soooo much fun! I thoroughly enjoyed making up my own language and really wish I would've done more of it in the first book. Lucky for me,  I still have a whole other book in the Lark world to write)

    Into the depths will perish all that dares disturb this pedestal.

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…
