Hourglass is released TODAY from Egmont!
Happy Book Birthday!!

Synopsis: One hour to rewrite the past . . .

For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn’t there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents’ death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She’s tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.

So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may change her past.

Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he’s around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened?

Interview with author Myra McEntire

How old were you when you started writing? And did you know you always wanted to be an author

Probably around eight, but seriously about thirty-mumble. And yes, I did always want to be an author.

Has time travel - or in Hourglass it’s time slip – always been something you knew you wanted to write about? And what was your inspiration?

No, it was a complete surprise to me. I just followed the story!

What was the hardest part in writing Hourglass?

Getting the ending right!

Was there something that happened throughout your road to becoming published that was a surprise to you?

I was surprised by how lovely other authors are. It’s such a giving community.

Without giving too much away, could you share with us a favorite line or two from Hourglass?

“Buttered biscuits and honey.”

Can you tell us a secret… something we might not know about one or more of your main characters? You don’t have to tell us names, maybe we could try to figure out what secret belongs to whom?

One of them LOVES bluegrass music.

Is there something you think every aspiring author should know?

No one is going to write the book for you. It’s you and the page, and when you’re serious about it, you’ll make the words come.

Lastly, what’s coming up next for you? Can you tell us anything about what we can be eagerly looking forward to?

I just turned in the sequel to HOURGLASS, and I’m playing around with a couple of new ideas. It’s all story soup right now!

Myra, thanks SO much for visiting with us today. It was great of you to take the time to stop by. I hope that you’ll be able to visit with us again soon!

My Ratings

When I review I rate from 1 to 5 stars, 5 being the highest rating. I review based on many different things from the writing, to the story - to the characters and how I can relate to them or how they are developed. I also review based on if an author has worked their magic and was able to draw me into a story so deeply that I don't want to put the book down.
