C.M. McCoy to the Stage

On the eighth day of Countdown to Avelynn, my hostess gave to me, another amazingly awesome guest author to fill your hearts with glee.

Help me welcome C.M. McCoy to the stage!


Here’s a little blurb about her debut novel Eerie to be released this spring!


Being a ParaScience freshman is a nightmare come true

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 the only thing keeping her safe from a murderous 3,000-year old beast is an equally terrifying creature who has fallen “madly” in love with her.

Competing to win her affection, the Dream Creature, Asher, lures her to the one place that offers safety—a ParaScience university in Alaska he calls home. There, she studies the science of the supernatural and must learn to live with a roommate from Hell, survive a tunneling earworm, extract a carnivorous splinter, evade the campus poltergeists, and hope the only creature who can save her from an evil immortal doesn’t decide to kill her himself.


For more about Eerie visit her website or follow her on Facebook!

C.M. McCoy will also be giving away a $100 gift card at Avelynn’s Launch Party!

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Facebook on the 8th of September!

In gratitude,

I'll take your challenge!

I would like to thank @eerie_o for inviting me to the 7/7/7 challenge.

The rules of the 7/7/7 Challenge are:

  1. Go to page 7 of your WIP.
  2. Scroll down to Line 7.
  3. Share the next 7 sentences in a blog post.
  4. After the excerpt, tag 7 other writers to continue the challenge.

Since these are the LAST and only lines on page 7 of my WIP (Avelynn #2), I will give them all to you!

“The men that survived the shield wall against the Vikings, the men who fought loyally under your banner are being rounded up and executed as traitors. Their widows and fatherless children blame you and your treachery for their plight. They don’t want you here. They want you dead.”

A strangled cry escaped my lips, and I looked at him in horror. “Bertram, please. . .”

“You are not welcome here, Avelynn. You have lain with the devil and only God can save you now.” He tossed his staff, the wood rolling to a stop at my feet. “I suggest you leave before the people get here. They will arrive on the morrow.” He walked away and did not look back.

OOOOh, how’s that for tension! 🙂 Bam!

I’m supposed to find seven other authors who have to complete this task, but everyone I know has already done it, lol. Instead, I will direct you to the beautiful C.M. McCoy who just completed her 7/7/7 challenge and invited me to finally join the in crowd. 😀

In gratitude,

Marissa xo
