Spotlight on Eerie by C.M. McCoy + Giveaway!

Today we're spotlighting C.M. McCoy's novel, EerieRead on for more about C.M. and her novel, plus an excerpt, and giveaway!

 

Meet C.M. McCoy!

 
 CM McCoy has one pointed ear, a 70-pound puppy that snores like an old man, and a very active imagination. She’s well aware nobody can say or spell her real last name, hence the pen name. You can call her Colleen. She’s the PR manager for Inklings Literary Agency and the creator of Totem Head's Annual Free Writing Contest for Kids. When she’s not chatting with her imaginary friends, she’s interviewing with PEOPLE Magazine, ABC’s 20/20, the local morning news show, or INSIDE EDITION, where she promotes writing for mental and emotional health. She also mentors pre-published authors through workshops and contests. Though she holds a BS in both Chemical Engineering and German, she's far happier writing near misses and awkward kisses. Some of her off-the-wall talents include speaking in 10-codes (which she learned as a 911-call-taker and dispatcher for Alaska State Troopers), flying helicopters, and Irish dance.

 

Meet Eerie!
 
Featured in PEOPLE Magazine & on INSIDE EDITION -- Hailey must survive her supernatural classes, avoid the pants-stealing campus poltergeist, and live with a roommate from Hell. At Paranormal University, this much is certain: if her classes don't kill her, the guy she falls in love with just might.
Hailey's dreams have always been, well...vivid. As in monsters from her nightmares follow her into her waking life vivid. When her big sister goes missing, eighteen-year-old Hailey finds only one place offers her answers--a paranormal university in Alaska. There, she studies the science of the supernatural and must learn to live with a roommate from Hell, survive her otherworldly classes, and hope the only creature who can save her from an evil monster doesn't decide to kill her himself.
 
 
 
Excerpt:
 

Absently, Hailey flipped through a stack of mail on the table, stopping suddenly at a large silver envelope.

“To Holly and Hailey Hartley,” it read in shaky lettering, and the return address was printed in two lines:

Bear Towne University
The Middle of Nowhere, Alaska

Ever so lightly, Hailey ran her hand across Holly’s name, smiling as she remembered the hours they’d spent at the kitchen table, writing wild scholarship essays for Bear Towne.

Very carefully, she tore an opening along the edge of the silver paper and with trembling hands, pulled out a letter.

Dear Misses Holly and Hailey Hartley,

Congratulations on your full scholarship to study ParaScience at Bear Towne University in the Great White North.

Upon your arrival in The Middle of Nowhere, you will have already completed the course requirements for ParaScience 101, An Introduction, which is a 3-credit course conducted during your 10-hour flight aboard the Bear Towne Luftzeug.

All incoming ParaScience freshmen are required to attend this course, and should be advised not to panic.

Please arrive at the Pittsburgh Executive Airport no later than 1000 on the first of August to board your flight, and hold all questions until your arrival on campus.

Enclosed with this letter, you will find important information regarding your move to Alaska and life in general at the Bear Towne campus. Follow the enclosed instructions and please adhere to the packing list. As a reminder, percussive instruments are expressly FORBIDDEN at BTU.

Once again, congratulations,

Simeon Woodfork

Dr. Simeon Woodfork
Dean of the College of ParaScience Bear Towne University

Hailey turned the letter over then shook the silver envelope, looking for the promised information, but all she found was a note scribbled on parchment and folded asymmetrically, which advised her to bring no more than one piece of luggage—purse size.

Not much of a packing list.

“How am I supposed to fit everything I need into one small bag?” she wondered out loud, deciding on the spot that she was going to Alaska in the fall, without panicking, and by way of Luftzeug, whatever that was.

Why not? She hadn’t received any other offers of scholarship or even admission from anywhere else, and there was no way she’d spend another year wiping tables at the family pub. “Did you say something, dear?” Uncle Pix asked from the kitchen, and everyone turned their attention to Hailey.

“We got accepted to a college in Alaska.”


“Alaska?” he said, his voice full of foreboding, and Hailey looked at her letter again, her 
chin poked out in a half frown.

“Yeah, Bear Towne University. Full scholarship.”


Her uncles exchanged worried expressions.


“Holly won a full scholarship too,” she said, smiling sadly.


“Let me see that letter.” Uncle Pix strode across the floor and snatched it out of her hand.

He skimmed the page and squinted at the signature on the bottom. “What’s up?” she asked.

Her uncles chatter-answered all at once—the same message but in vastly different tones, some sad, some proud, and one very anxious, which rang through the others:

“We’re worried about you going to Bear Towne,” Uncle Wimp said with a frown, and she looked up at him in confusion.

“You’ve heard of Bear Towne University?”

 

“Sure, that’s a feckin mad place.”


“What does that mean? Is a ‘feckin mad place’...is that good or bad?” She looked from

Wimp to Pix and then to Dale, who had suddenly found a hangnail on his thumb which was very conspicuously demanding his full attention. Hailey honed in on him.

The cover makes me feel eerie and gives me light shivers, but the synopsis sounds really good and exciting.

I've always loved the blend of paranormal and the cover just gives tiny bit glimpse of the mystery covering the story. Seems really good!
