HOURGLASS Cover Reveal!






From the back cover: 

"Since the age of fourteen, Emerson Cole has seen strange things – dead things – swooning Southern Belles, soldiers, and other eerie apparitions of the past. She’s tried everything to get rid of the visions: medication, counseling, asylums. Nothing’s worked. 

So when Emerson's well-meaning brother calls in yet another consultant from a mysterious organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to give it one last try.

Michael Weaver is no ordinary consultant. He's barely older than she is; he listens like no one she's ever met before; and he doesn't make her feel the least bit crazy. As Emerson ventures deeper into the world of the Hourglass, she begins to learn the truth about her past, her future--and her very life.

A seductive time-slip novel that merges the very best of the paranormal and science fiction genres, Myra McEntire’s Hourglass is a stunning debut from an author to watch."

And I will say this, because I didn't get it at first...did you reallllllly look at it? Like, turn your head sideways, look at it?

  9. Hi Myra *waves shyly* I just heard about your book from over at the Twilight Lexicon, so I decided to visit your website. I adore the cover - it's very eerie when you look at it from the side. I love it!

    I'm planning to buy it on Amazon.com if I don't win it in the contest at the TL. It sounds really intriguing, and congratulations on it being published!

  10. Wow! I saw this post on Twitter and thought hmmm, I'd like to see the cover. So I click on the blog and love the soothing lavender. Then I look at the cover. I turn my head sideways and look again. I turn the laptop sideways and look again. It is truly amazing! I don't know what else to say but Congratulations. I love it and the story sounds more than intriguing. I'm definitely going to put this on my Amazon shopping list. :)

  14. Wow. Seriously awesome cover. If I saw that on the shelves I would buy it without even reading the blurb, it's that intriguing. Even more so if you actually read the blurb!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I was wondering about the angle (studied cover before reading) that isn't a door she is standing if front of. hmmmm.

    ReplyDelete

  34. Shannon told me to come tell you I love your cover.

    I love your cover.

    That probably sounds like I'm joking. I'm not. It's very unique and mysterious, and instantly makes you want to crack that book open and find out what the heck is going on.

    Also, being apparently the only dude to comment so far, I like that it is less feminine that a lot of the anti-gravity covers I've seen lately. I mean it's still lovely, but there also seems to be a hint of something sinister beneath.

  35. AMAZING! Can't wait to get my hands on it!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I absolutely LOVE this cover. I've added it to my TBR list before the cover came out. I just love the synopsis of the book, I love anything that is creepy in a mental sort of way. Now that I see the cover, it just goes so perfectly with what the book is about. LOVE IT!

    I posted some thoughts on my blog about the cover too :-) http://girlinterruptedbybooks.blogspot.com/2011/01/cover-release-hourglass-by-myra.html
