Cover Reveal for Myra McEntire’s HOURGLASS

Myra McEntire has been a friend to the Lexicon for years.  If you are from the Nashville area you may have seen her helping run our movie events there.  In fact, when we were being asked to run an event in Nashville in November 2009, Myra volunteered to run it knowing we couldn’t be there. Today is a big day for Myra and we are helping her celebrate by revealing her book cover and hosting a giveaway!  Hourglass, Myra’s debut novel from Egmont USA, will be released on May 24th.


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

I’ve had the chance to read Hourglass and trust me you want this book.  The writing is witty and snarky.  Emerson is one of the sassiest main characters I’ve ever met and she isn’t going to let anyone push her around.  Enter Michael, the boy who has the answers, well some of them, and a wicked smile.  The story is fast paced and filled with memorable characters. (just wait until you meet Kaleb)  Add in the timeslip factor and you have a truly unique story.

One lucky winner will be receiving a signed arc and an hourglass. All you have to do is a leave a comment below and a winner will be chosen at random.  The contest is open to anyone INTERNATIONALLY (sorry for the confusion) The contest will close on January 30th at 8PM est.

Now for the big moment……………………..
