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

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."

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…

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.
