Tentative schedule for 2014

So I've actually accomplished a lot this week!I finished writing Pieces of Me. I'm just waiting for the last bit of notes from my beta readers and then I'll be sending it to Jenny at Editing4Indies--this is the first time I've had an actual editor so I'm excited!
Once I finish final edits, I'll pick a release date and share the new cover.

Komal Kant is in town this week. We've been working on the book we're co-writing, UNFAMILIAR. We've done a lot of character development, worked out a detailed outline and tweaking the plot. It's going to be amazing and I can't wait. We've written up to chapter 3 so far.

Then last night while we were watching World War Z, I had some MAJOR inspiration (Weird, I know. And no, the inspiration is not at all zombie-related). You know how I started Lark and In the Shadows with a dream? Well, I wanted to continue that with Like the Dawn. I knew what/who I wanted her to dream about but I wasn't sure HOW it was going to happen--until last night! It just came to me and it's absolutely perfect (heart-wrenching to think about, but perfect) soooooooooooooooooooooo this got started a month earlier than I was planning to:

It's been a very productive week in the Cope house. I'm going to fix dinner now and then teach Komal how to knit and then we'll probably work some more later tonight.
I seriously can not wait to publish Pieces, finish writing Unfamiliar and start writing Like the Dawn. 2014 is shaping up to be another busy year! I just hope it's the good kind of busy and we have far less trips to the hospital in 2014. :)

Here is my tentative schedule:
Finish writing Pieces of Me--December 13th
Publish Pieces of Me--Late Dec/early Jan
Finish writing first draft of Unfamiliar--Jan 31
Publish Unfamiliar--Late Feb/early March
Finish writing first draft of Like the Dawn--March 31st
Publish Like the Dawn--Late April/early May

Then I plan to spend the summer re-working Forget Me Not, which is a YA contemporary romance about a boy and a girl who knew each other as children but are separated for several years and live very different lives. When they are reunited in high school they both pretend not to remember the other. I've started this one, I'm actually about half way done with it but I got caught up in Aria and Holden's story so it got put on hold.
Lots of stories to tell this next year! I hope you all stick around for them. :)



XOXO

    Hello! Welcome to my page! I'm terrible about updating it but my goal is to do better this year so when Lizzy Ford came up with the Spring into Romance Facebook Hop I jumped right on!  What a fantastic idea, right?! Lots of new authors to meet and prizes to win!  For my giveaway, I decided to giveaway one of my books that is particularly close to my heart,   Pieces of Me 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

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
