Nightingale update

Hey folks!
I'm currently working on two different manuscripts right now--one with Autumn Doughton (we had so much fun writing Steering the Stars we decided to write another one!) and, the one a lot of you have been waiting for: Nightingale!

For a while there I was feeling NO INSPIRATION for Nightingale at all and I was really disappointed thinking that maybe I waited too long to start it and it was too late.
I'm happy to report that I've been unable to stop thinking about Nightingale for a month or so now and though I'm writing a lot slower than I've done in the past (we're in the process of selling our house so we can move), I'm really happy with what I have outlined for this story.
What can I tell you about it so far?
Well, I'm SO glad you asked.

1) It will introduce a brand spanking new character named Wren.
2) There will be lots of Grey ;)
3) It will start off in Wamego, KS (which is a small town near Manhattan where Mia/Lark is from).
4) Though it will feature a new character, our old favorites will be present.
5) If you have a super keen memory for details, you might recall a little bit about the history on why the Light Elves decided to withdrawal from human interactions? That will play an important part of this new story. :)


I'm writing this story a little differently than I did with the Lark trilogy. This time I plan to write out the ENTIRE thing and then decide whether to publish it as one large book OR (depending on exactly how long it is) splitting it up into three books.

I have the entire storyline outlined though so right now I'm just going to write write write and then when I finish, I'll make the decision and I'll let you guys know.

If I do decide to release it in three different installments, each book will release very close together--I'm thinking one a month for three months.

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.

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…
