One of the things I love about being part of the Girlfriends’ Cyber Circuit is getting to find out about intriguing new releases like TIMEPIECE by Myra McEntire.  Here’s a little something about the books and a brief interview, which I hope you’ll find intriguing as well!

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.

INTERVIEW WITH MYRA McENTIRE

What is your writing process like? Are you a plotter or a pantser? Do you schedule time to write each day or are you a spree writer?

I have to talk out my plots. I do some before I start, and more as I get deeper in the story. I have friends who listen, and a few who just nod and make acknowledging noises. They both work. And I try to schedule time each day, but that’s easier during the school year.
What is the hardest part about the publishing process for you and how do you get through it? (For me, it’s copyediting and sour cream and onion chips.)

The middle. Dear sweet heaven, the middle. I get through it with Twizzlers and crying.
We drop your hero or heroine on a deserted island. Quick, what are the three things he or she can’t live without?

He needs: His girlfriend. Hot Tamales. Sunscreen.
If your story were a film, who would you cast?

I’ve always said Kaleb is what would happen if Channing Tatum and Kellan Lutz had a baby. So Imma need them to get going on that.
Congratulations on your fabulous new release!

Thank you!

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! Thank you!
