GCC Presents Myra McEntire and TIMEPIECE!









Isn't that the coolest cover? I love it! I'm welcoming another girlfriend from Girlfriends Cyber Circuit, Myra McEntire, and her new release, TIMEPIECE!
 
ABOUT TIMEPIECE:

Kaleb Ballard was never supposed to be able to see ripples—cracks in time. Are Kaleb’s powers expanding, or is something very wrong? Before Kaleb can find out, Jonathan Landers, the man who tried to murder his father, reappears. Why is he back, and what, or whom, does he want?
 
In the wake of Landers’s return, the Hourglass organization is offered an ultimatum by a mysterious man. Either they find Landers and the research he has stolen on people who might carry the time gene, or time will be altered—with devastating results for the people Kaleb loves most.
 
Now Kaleb, Emerson, Michael, and the other Hourglass recruits have no choice but to use their extraordinary powers to find Landers. But where do they even start? And when? Even if they succeed, just finding him may not be enough. . . .
 
The follow-up to Hourglass, Timepiece blends the paranormal, science-fiction, mystery, and suspense genres into a nonstop thrill ride where every second counts.

CONTEST:

Myra has a contest on her site - http://myramcentire.com - that will run from June 18th to June 25th. She’ll be giving away signed copies of HOURGLASS and TIMEPIECE, signed posters of the covers, a goodie basket inspired by her characters, and signed books from other authors!

ABOUT MYRA McENTIRE:

Myra McEntire knows the words to every R&B hit of the last decade, but since she lives in Nashville, the country music capital of America, her lyrical talents go sadly unappreciated. She's chosen, instead, to channel her "mad word skills" into creating stories. She's an avid Doctor Who fan and will argue passionately about which incarnation is the best.

Myra stopped by for a short interview. Welcome, Myra! Can you tell me about your book in seven words or less.
Boy changes, falls in love, corrects mistakes 

Other than your main character, who's a favorite character of yours in your novel and why?
I love love love Lily. I never ever had to struggle with what she was going to say or do, because she’s one of those that just sprung up fully formed! 

What's one piece of writing advice you would give to aspiring authors?
Read. Read. Read. And then, read.  

What did you write when you were a teen? Did you journal? Write poetry? Write overly literary or emotional stories? Or avoid writing altogether?
I wrote terrible, terrible poetry. I just found some, and I’ll be posting on the blog soon.
 
What's the last book you read that you really loved?
Everneath by Brodi Ashton. It surprised me, because I didn’t expect the level of emotion it achieved. I knew it would be good, but I didn’t know it would rip my guts out. In a nice way. 

Thanks, Myra, and congratulations on your release!

  2. Timepiece, unlike Hourglass, is told from Kaleb's point of view. It held all of the mystery, suspense, time travel, and twists as the first book, and then some! We even get a tie-in to Mythology in Timepiece, with a connection to Chronos, the Personification of Time. Romance abounds as well in Timepiece, with Kaleb finding someone as feisty as himself.

    Many times in sequels, I feel that authors spend too much ink retelling portions of the previous book. Thank you, Myra McEntire, for not doing this! Timepiece flowed smoothly, continuing the story that was begun in Hourglass, while adding new players, uncovering more story lines and creating another level of the plot that will continue on into the next book.
