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."

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…
