Steering the Stars

Hola friends! So I happened to notice the last time I posted was in SEPTEMBER. How ridiculous is that? My apologies!
So here's my bi-yearly (really sorry about that) update!
I have a good excuse, really I do! First I was busy finishing up Sea Swept which I published, along with the companion short story, Riptide,  in Nov!

Then Autumn Doughton and I immediately started working on Steering the Stars. It started off as our NaNoWriMo project but what started off as a novella quickly expanded into the longest novel either of us have written to date. Between writing, holidays and illnesses in Dec, we didn't get the first draft finished until January. But it's finished now! I actually submitted the paperback files about an hour ago!

We will be publishing STEERING THE STARS on March 7th! It's got a Sisterhood of the Traveling pants meet Anna and the French Kiss sort of vibe going on and I really love it! I hope you will too!

Autumn and I both attended NOLA 2015 Author Event in January as well and it was AMAZING!
We had the best time! New Orleans is a very fun city and thought I didn't spend as much time there as we did in Baton Rouge with my family, I definitely enjoyed what I did see.


Next up on the agenda? I'm currently helping Blondie #1 write her own story. She's been thinking about it for a while and actually started writing it earlier today. It's pretty impressive and not in a "I'm her mom" sort of way. I told her if she finishes it, we will get it edited and a cover and she can publish it. :)

Give me about a week or two after we release Steering the Stars and I'll be really focusing on my next project--trouble is I'm not sure if I want to start writing Nightingale RIGHT NOW or write this new idea first. I guess whichever character demands my attention more will get it!

In the meantime, if you want to chat be sure to check out my author page on Facebook (Erica Cope-author) and sign up for my newsletter (right hand side of this page). I promise I'm much better at updating those. :)

XOXO
