Author Appreciation Blog Tour - Myra McEntire

 


We all live very hectic lives -- going from work or school to errands and eventually collapsing in our favorite chair to read. Here on PTB, we just wanted to take a moment to give a huge, virtual hug to Myra McEntire, a mom, a wife and a wonderful writer. She's one of those women who does it all, and we love her all the more for it. I know, a rarity indeed.

In her timeslip romance, Hourglass, she introduced us to Em, Michael and Kaleb. Most us cannot look at a wrought iron fence the same way after reading that story. In my 5-star review, I said it was: "...the best kind of romance, too. The will they-won't they-he-she-did-WHAT kind." You can read the complete review here.


The synopsis of Timepiece has me longing to read it:

Kaleb Ballard's relentless flirting is interrupted when Jack Landers, the man who tried to murder his father, timeslips in and attacks before disappearing just as quickly. But Kaleb has never before been able to see time travelers, unlike many of his friends associated with the mysterious Hourglass organization. Are Kaleb's powers expanding, or is something very wrong?

Then the Hourglass is issued an ultimatum. Either they find Jack and the research he's stolen on the time gene, or time will be altered with devastating results.

Now Kaleb, Emerson, Michael, and the other Hourglass recruits have no choice but to use their unusual powers to find Jack. But where do they even start? And when? And even if they succeed, it 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.
See what I mean? Hooked aren't you, and just from that synopsis alone. So have you ordered Timepiece, (Indie Bound | Barnes and Noble | amazon )  yet? Its release date is June 12th, which makes it the perfect beach-time, poolside read. I see that even Robert Pattinson agrees.

  13. I do not even think you could begin to imagine the amount of love I have for you. NOT JUST because you are a spectacular support. NOT JUST because when you hand make a Christmas present for me, and I put it on and send you a picture, you very kindly point out that I've put it on upside down before I go out in public. But because of the giggles and the virtual hugs and the friendship.

    And then.

    You go.

    And do this.

    YOU GIVE ME ROBWARD. SEMI-NEKKID. HOLDING MY BOOK.

    I'd ALMOST consider having another kiddo so I could name it after you.

    AL. MOST.

  14. Myra -
    LOL! Stop staring at the book placement. ;) For the record "Sophia" is a Greek word meaning "wisdom". The woman's name, however, translates to "a shrew". Think about it before launching into ver 3.0's naming.

    PTB is thrilled we were part of this virtual ((((hug)))).
