Go get your copies today! 😉
I’ve spent the past few months trying something a little different and I’m so excited to share it with you, website friends! As a reader, I like all genres, but one of my favorites has always been mystery. So I’ve started writing a cozy mystery series!
I still plan to continue to write my chick lit. I Pick You is still very much in the works (I can’t wait for you to meet Evie and James). I just wanted to branch out a bit and try something new.
While I have a few series ideas brewing, my first is all about Pepper Brooks. Let’s just say her English degree literally saves her life a few times in these literature-themed capers. She’ll be hitting shelves late September. I have the first and second books just about done, so you’ll get both this fall.
Oh, and the covers! I love love love them!
Stay tuned for more information!
Bahahaha! Scott, Scots. Oh boy, do I love puns.
If you don’t know me very well, know this: Eryn loves puns.
Anyway, another thing I love, oh-so-very-much, is my newest release! The Beauty of Perhaps releases today and I CANNOT wait to hear what you think!
From the first page, I knew this story would be something that would make me smile, make me sigh, and sit deep in my heart, but seriously, seeing the paperback in person yesterday when it came in the mail… let me just say, I am one smitten lady. (I may or may not have carried a book around in my purse all day just so I could pull it out at random times and stare/sigh at it.)
I hope you love it, too! Here’s the link. =) Get it this week for a special, release sale price!
Hey there lovely readers. It’s been a while, I know.
I’m so sorry for that. I’ve been spending the past few months dealing with a big flare up of my oh-so-fun autoimmune disease and it put me a tad behind schedule, release wise.
BUT, things are looking up! The Sweetness of Honey Pie, the third book in my What’s in a Name? Series, is finished! It’s with the editors now and then it’ll be off to my lovely ARC readers. I set it for an April 6th release date, but I’m thinking it’ll be out a bit earlier. If you feel like you might forget, it’s up for preorder right now on Amazon. Just click here to order yours and then it’ll be delivered to you when it’s out!
This book is as sweet as can be and I had a blast writing it. Here’s the cover again, and the blurb.
Honey Pieretti is sick and tired of being so nice. After her helpfulness leads to humiliation on her favorite baking-themed tv show, she and her lifelong best friend, Carter, decide to cast aside their trusting personalities by starting a competition to toughen up.
It’s all fun and games until Honey realizes she’s falling in love with her best friend. Convinced he doesn’t feel the same way, she must decide if she can live without his friendship or hide her feelings forever. But as the competition heats up and Honey’s given a chance at TV redemption, she finds that more than just love could ruin their friendship.
Can she prove to the boy next door that she’s still the girl he knows?
In other news, The Beauty of Perhaps is turning out to be a book I just can’t seem to stop fiddling with. I’ve fallen in LOVE with the story and I kinda think I just don’t want the writing process to end. =) I’ve added a ton of scenes to the original “finished” manuscript and am working on a few more before I think it’ll be perfect. The book should be releasing sometime in April, but I’ll let you know when I have a firmer idea of that date.
Thanks so much for sticking with me through this bit of a break. I promise I’m doing much better and am back to writing my heart out. There’s even a bit of a hint about my next work in progress hidden in my signature graphic below. Can’t wait to tell you more about it!

There’s a lot in this newest book that’s turning out differently than I expected it would.
It was supposed to be, almost exclusively, a women’s fiction story about a woman finding herself in a foreign land.
And while it still is that in many ways, it’s definitely taken on more of a love story tone. Sure, it’s becoming a love story in the most basic sense of the phrase. Gates, the love interest, and Molly just have something about them that has my fingers flying across the keys, has me writing scenes in a way that’ll put them together. But the love story part of this book is so much more than just two people finding each other.
This book has become a love story about Scotland. Just in the same way I find myself steering the story toward scenes where Molly and Gates get to interact, I find such a pull to write about this amazing country.
This book has become a tug-at-my-heart, reminisce-about-my-time-there love fest and I simply cannot help it. Readers, I’m taking this one slow, and I apologize for that, but as much as I try, I can’t seem to speed up this process. There’s something deep in my bones that is LOVING sitting deep in this story, returning to this lovely place, if only in my memories.
Even still, I’m heading into the halfway point and expect The Beauty of Perhaps to release late November. I will also be starting an ARC team for early readers and reviewers who might be interested in getting a free book in exchange for an honest review. If you’re interested in that, please join my Eryn Scott mailing list as I will be opening up spots to those people on the mailing list first.
Okay. =) Back to writing. Back to reminiscing. Back to my happy place.
Thanks for stopping by.
Those of you who follow this blog will know that A Chance for Sunny Skies was a book straight from my heart. After I finished the story last year, someone asked me, “Are you going to write a series for Sunny?” My immediate reaction was, “Oh gosh no!” I was done. That was it. Stand alone. Wrapped up. That story was finished.
It was a few months later that my lovely sister (also a writer — look for V.L. Helvey books someday) mentioned how fun a Rainy book would be. It surprised me how open I was to the idea, now, just with a few months difference. Hmmm… I thought. That would be kinda fun.
Sometimes books are written because the character just won’t leave the author alone. And that’s what this book is for me. After that nugget of an idea was planted, I couldn’t get rid of Rainy in my head. She kept telling me her story, sometimes yelling it. 😉
I know I say this all the time, but I am so obsessed with this story. I LOVE this book. And, oh my, do I hope you feel the same, readers. =) This is not strictly a romance. I had a reviewer call my books chick lit/romantic comedy hybrids. And I agree SO much. You’ll see a lot of our lovely Sunny in this story and I hope you’ll get to know Rainbow so much better while she navigates many relationships (yes, one of which has to do with a particularly yummy guy). Plus, you’ll get a sneak peak into our next Willamette Falls character, Honey.
Thank you so profusely to all those who helped make this book and all of my books a possibility. Another of my little ducklings heads out into the big wide world today, and while it’s always a little nerve-wracking, it’s the best feeling to get to share these characters I love with readers that love them, too!
Thank you so much for reading! Here she is! (Amazon link in picture)
It’s only been a little over a week since I got back from Scotland, but I still can’t think about the place without getting a dreamy look in my eyes and letting a deep sigh pull at my lungs.
Because, that place.
Readers, it wasn’t just the rolling green hills (I thought I knew green, living in the PNW, but Scotland has a whole different spectrum of the color), or the heather-spotted moors, or the sparkling beaches, or even the locals’ oh-so-wonderful accents that had me at hello (or “hiya” as they often say). The soul of this country is one you can’t help but fall in love with, let it settle deep into your bones until you realize that you don’t actually know how you’re going to leave.
And let me tell you, I came back BRIMMING with ideas for this book of mine. So the exciting thing for me is that, even though I did eventually have to leave, I get to spend an entire book reliving my love for this place, letting my character experience the country as I did, and sitting with my memories as I write.
I mean, just look.
Okay. Enough drooling over pictures, I have to get writing. =) Eeeee! I love starting a new book!
Want a little teaser before you go?
The book is titled The Beauty of Perhaps. It’s all about Molly Baker, a late-twenty-something who, above all else, values planning and loves the predictable (I mean, we’re talking she won’t go to a restaurant unless they have an online menu she can use to pick her meal out before hand, predictable). So, what better for someone like that to do than drop everything and take a teaching job on a remote island in a foreign country, right? Yeah… Wonder what got a girl like that to take such an adventure? Wonder what will happen once she gets there? Wonder if there’ll be a cute Scottish guy who will steal her heart?
You’ll have to wait and see!
I’m off to get started! Thanks for stopping by!
