NaNoWriMo

So I decided to commit to writing a 50,000 word novel in the month of November---eek! That's a lot of pressure! So far I'm set to finish on Nov 21st so I hope I can keep up the pace! This is the first year I've participated in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) so I'm excited!
I decided to write Pieces of Me this month. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while so I'm excited about it.

Recently I randomly entered a giveaway with Cover Art Collective  and I won a free cover design by Delilah Stephans Designs. Perfect timing, right?

So here is the cover of my NaNoWriMo novel, Pieces of Me:




And of course I had to share the blurb:


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 making it his mission to make her smile.
At first, she isn’t impressed with him, but he’s persistent and soon she discovers there’s more to him than just a charming smile.
Aria was sure she'd never be able to move on with her life, but there's just something about Holden that makes her want to try.
When her tragedy comes full circle, she’s left with a choice: Keep holding on to the past, or move on and find her future...


I love the pretty tones of the cover! And I haven't seen too many others that are similar so I really like that about it.
What do you think?

I'm thinking this will be a January release for me IF I finish it this month but you never know, I might just have another novel out before the end of the year after all. :)


XOXO

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."

Cover Reveal: Somewhere Between Falling

Tamsin Seger knows there is no such thing as happily-ever-afters in real life. After her father's humiliating scandal forced her into the spotlight, the last thing she wants is more drama in her life.
Then she meets Tobias Clark.
What she never expected was to spend a perfect day with a perfect stranger, and even though it goes against everything she had resolved to do, falling for Tobias was easy.  Or at least that's what she thought until she sees him again and he ends up being the last person she needs him to be.
If Tamsin wants to escape another scandal, she has to stay away from Tobias at all costs--but some things are easier said than done and there’s a reason they say the heart wants, what the heart wants.   

M.I.A as usual!

Hello everyone! I realize that I have been M.I.A. As most of you probably know I have been in grad school the last two years and it's been pretty time-consuming. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel! I graduate in December and after this semester (which has been particularly challenging), it should be smooth sailing until graduation day!

I am still writing. Not nearly as often as I once did because in addition to being a mom, a teacher, and a cheer coach, I am also a student. Whenever I can squeeze it in though I am writing! I finished a chapter tonight which prompted me to realize that I haven't updated my website in I don't even know how long.

I'd say I'll try to do better but let's be honest, I've said that before!

I have two solo WIP...THESE BROKEN DREAMS and SOMEWHERE BETWEEN FALLING. Both are very different from each other so that's kind of fun. Autumn and I also have a little something in the works but her life is just as hectic as …
