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

Today only! 80+ giveaways for paperbacks, ebooks, and more!

    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

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  Álfheimr . 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." You can check out the rest of the list here !  You can purchase your own copy of NIGHTINGALE here !

Book Signing!

So I'm beyond excited to tell you that I will be having a book signing! It's a local signing in the nearby town of Webb City, MO at Minerva's on Main street. My friend Mary actually talked to the owner about it last month and then my husband delivers there and he also talked to the owner so I knew it was a possibilty but nothing was set yet. So today while the girls were in ballet, I decided to swing in for a drink (PS I got the Espresso Milkshake and it was a little piece of Heaven. Just sayin'. You must try it!). On a whim I decided to ask the girl making my drink if Tom was in and he was! So I introduced myself and asked him about the possibility of doing a book signing there. I let him read the blurb of Lark and he was interested! He gave me his wife's number, and this evening we set a date and time! June 8th from 11am-1pm! I'll post more details when it gets closer but if you can, mark your calendars and come see me!
