I've been lucky enough to have followed along the journey of this month's featured debut author for a long time now. It is my good friend Myra McEntire and in only a few days you'll be able to buy her paranormal young adult , Hourglass! This isn't your typical YA paranormal, check this out:
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.
See what I mean! Aren't you just dying to know more? Then please join me in welcoming Myra McEntire to Heather's Odyssey!It feels like I've been waiting forever to holdHourglass in my hands.
What inspire you to write this particular novel?
Myra: The day I finished HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS I knew I had to try to write.
Yay, another HP fan! HP fans are always welcome here. ;)While writing, what is the one thing you can't do without?
Myra: Music! All kinds!
What an excellent way to feed your muse. Someday I'll have to get your playlist out of you!What was your favorite part of writing Hourglass?
Myra: The revising. ALL the revising - my own, my agent's, and finally my editor's. That's how you learn!
Another fan of revising, I love it! Tell me, who was your favorite character to write and why?
Myra: I don't have a favorite, but I will say Kaleb was supposed to be someone else entirely. :D
Aw, what a good writer mom. Now I'm intrigued about Kaleb.Is there anything you can tell us about Hourglass that we may not know from your blog?
Myra: It's one of many books I've started, but the only one I've finished!
I didn't know that. That makes it even more special. So what do you have in store for us after Hourglass? A sequel, or stand alone novel maybe?
Myra: I just turned the sequel in a few weeks ago!
Yay, happy dance! I love it when the magic doesn't end, and I just know Hourglass is going to be magical. Any closing thoughts to leave us with? Myra:Thank you so much!!!!
Thank you for joining us Myra, it is always a pleasure. Okay peeps, hurry over and pre-order your copy of Hourglass because when mine arrives I want to be able to chat with you about it!
