What's Fresh with Myra McEntire's 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.

Hi Myra! Thank you for chatting with us on YA Fresh! Timepiece sounds awesome! What are your favorite and least favorite parts of the writing "process"?

Myra: Favorite is editing, least favorite is drafting!

What was the main inspiration for Timepiece?

Myra: It’s a sequel, so it started talking when I was still working on the first book!

Who would you cast if your book was made into a movie?

Myra: Ryan Gosling. For every. Single. Part.

LOL! Great answer. What is your worst writing distraction/procrastination tool?

Myra: The TWITTER. Oh the Twitter. It’s my dragon, and I have no sword.

Thanks for sharing, Myra! Best of luck with your writing!

Hey YA Freshers! Myra has a contest on her site - - that will run until 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! Be sure to check it out!

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.

Timepiece has an action filled plot that will keep you flipping the pages. Most chapters end with mini cliffhangers which make the book incredibly hard to put down. The plot progresses with interesting twists and turns that you never see coming. The idea of having time related abilities, not just time traveling, is not only intriguing but well executed. McEntire weaves together strong characters and an intense plot that makes for a truly fantastic read. The Hourglass series is a must read.
