#BookGiveaway – Online Book Expo: Introduction #ArmchairBookExpo

Hi guys! Do you know about Book Expo America? It’s a huge book convention in New York, which is happeningย  over the next several days. Maybe I’ll hit Book Expo in real life sometime, but Alaska’s hard to leave this time of year <3 This year (and maybe every year), I’ll be joining an elite group of bloggers in an online mirror of the giant book event in New York city. Today’s prompt is an introduction, so here’s mine (plus a giveaway, because you guys know I can’t do anything without a giveaway ๐Ÿ™‚ )
My introduction: Hi, I’m Colleen (aka CM McCoy) of North Of Normal Book Reviews:

  1. I am . . .ย  an author, blogger, Irish Dancer, beer & whiskey drinker, retired Air Force officer, chemical engineer, helicopter pilot, mom, space wife, shower singer (loud), and goofball who trips over nothing on a daily (sometimes hourly) basis. Nice to meet you!
  2. Currently . . . I’m enjoying the Alaska sunshine and listening to my 90-lb Boerboel puppy snore like a fat old man
  3. I love . . . Alaska, love stories, my critique partners, Penguins hockey, Steelers football, Irish music, sore muscles, bloody toes, and books. Lots and lots of books.
  4. My favorite . . . sounds are the 4am Alaska songbirds
  5. My least favorite . . . expression is the dangling “so…..” Finish your damn thought, because if you leave me to make your conclusion for you, it’ll involve snarling Yetis or vomiting ghosts.
  6. My current read . . . is THE DEAD LIST by Jennifer Armentrout, which has some great moments.
  7. My summer plans . . . include finishing my YA thriller, camping at the Arctic Circle, filling the freezer with red salmon, and reading 100 books.
  8. My buddy . . . just sent me a SPOT message to let me know he landed safely on a sandbar at our camp on the Yentna River (he flew the Cub)
  9. My blog/channel/social media . . . @eerie_oย  on Twitter and Instagram
  10. The best . . .YA books I’ve read this year are:


SOME BOYS by Patty Blount

ROYAL BASTARDS by Andrew Shvarts

SHIVER by Maggie Stiefvater (I read this every year <3)
