One Year

Today is Lark's birthday! It's hard to believe that one year ago today I said to my husband, "Okay, I'm going to do it." and hit "publish". I don't think I slept a wink that night waiting for the book I spent an entire year working on to go "live". 

So much has happened since then that on one hand I can hardly believe it's been a whole year and on the other I feel like this has always been my life. 

Since I currently don't have any paperbacks to giveaway to celebrate my first official year of being an author (I really need to order another shipment soon!) and Like the Dawn (Lark #3) isn't ready to be published yet (though Unfamiliar is close!), I thought the least I could do is share another teaser.      


        Grey leads me out of the hall and into the gardens. This is the place I feel the most at ease in this new life of mine. It's like I derive my strength from outside in the tranquility of these garden walls.
      This is the place I first learned about the prophecy, where I trained and where I first discovered I could speak inside Jacoby's mind. It's also where Grey kissed me for the first time. The memory of that night causes my stomach to flip uncomfortably. He's standing in front of me, his unusual indigo eyes piercing my heart and I have a feeling that this is going to be a conversation I'm not quite prepared to have.
      “I know that you think it's too soon. But Mia, you and I, we've been through a lot together. I think you know how I feel, how I've always felt.”
     “Actually, I don't. I mean, I do now because you told me but before, I didn’t. I had no idea. I spent so much of my time being confused by you that it was frustrating. You frustrated me. You still do for that matter.”
      “I never meant to confuse you. I just knew that the way things were before, it was impossible to even ponder the possibility of anything more. But now--” Grey pulls my hand into his and gently rubs the mark on my wrist with his thumb. “We have a real chance. If you will only allow me the chance to prove myself worthy.”


 Obviously it's unedited and subject to change between now and April (but probably won't change much).

Komal and I are wrapping up Unfamiliar and hoping to dive headfirst into edits by the end of the week and then I will focus all my attention on writing the finale to Lark's story. I think about this story every day and I'm really looking forward to finishing it.


Thank you to everyone who supports me by reading my books and sharing them with your friends. You've made this past year one of my best yet and I'm really looking forward to what this next year holds.

Much love to you all!

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.

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 …
