The 2017 RT Booklover’s Convention in Atlanta is May 2-7, and I will be all over the place with a TON of giveaways and my dancing shoes! There are now THREE events where you can definitely find me: 1) the YA Spooky Slumber Party, and 2) the #PitchWars Road Show and 3) YA Book-tionary.
Between fan-girling over the awesome authors, meeting with readers, and taking pitches from authors with agent Michelle Johnson, I hope to meet as many fellow book lovers as humanly possible! If you’re going to the convention, send me a note (colleen (at) cmmccoy.com). I’d love to meet up for drinks, dancing, book-gushing, EL James hunting, etc 🙂
(Seriously, I tracked her down at RT last year, and this year, I badly BADLY want my copy of GREY signed <3 )
So many awesome authors will be milling around!
I asked the other Spooky YA authors of RT to share their favorite creepy book or movie with us. Here’s part THREE of those spooky recommendations.
At the bottom of THIS post, you’ll find a Rafflecopter giveaway of a SIGNED copy of DESIRE by R. Rose (US only) or a $10 Giftcard (international) :-D
Meet some Spooky YA Authors
Creepiest villain ever — Freddy from Nightmare on Elm Street. I think he creeped me out so much I imagined my novel’s villain, Cobon, as somewhat similar in his singular evil purpose.
Colleen’s Spooky YA Book:
by CM McCoy
The sensational teen paranormal romance featured in PEOPLE Magazine and on INSIDE EDITION!
Hailey Hartley has just enrolled in the world’s premier supernatural university. It’s a school she’s never heard of, located in a town called The Middle of Nowhere, and run by a creature that’s not supposed to exist. But at least she got a scholarship…
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.
The Woman in Black. It’s my creepy movie pick because some of those single frame images, especially of the children, gave me nightmares for a weeks.
Roxanna’s Magical Novel:
Hunted by the Goddess of Killing Rage to satisfy a desire for Otherworldly vengeance, Eléan finds herself the object of possession by mortals and immortals alike. Now, evil is cutting a bloody path through the mortal realm as it comes for her. Passion, betrayal, malevolence, and magic conjured from the depths of ancient Irish legends comes to life.
Passion, betrayal, malevolence, and magic conjured from the depths of ancient Irish legends comes to life in this story about Eléan. Created by the ancient Celtic God, Dagda to please his beloved daughter, Brighid and gifted with a spark of her soul; Eléan is given the task of living in the mortal realm while being relentlessly hunted in a deadly desire for Otherworldly vengeance. She must control her legacy and save the immortal soul that lives within her.
Liam and James have been friends…brothers…since they were children. Now the Otherworld has been released into the Mortal Realm and it’s coming for Eléan, a woman they both love and would die to protect. Will it destroy their bond or will they find the strength to stand together and fight what’s coming?
Forced into the service of the Goddess Morrigan, Greagoir must be the vessel for her uncontrollable lust and killing rage. Possessing Eléan, body and soul, is the key to his freedom. He must submit to Morrigan and give her what she desires most, the death of the Goddess Brighid. All that stands in his way are two mortal warriors gifted by a goddess and a young woman’s desire to survive.
