Waiting on Wednesday: Hourglass

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking the Spine to see more entries!

This week, I am waiting on:

Hourglass by Myra McEntire
Publisher: EgmontUSA
Publication Date: 5.24.11
"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."

Why am I waiting on Hourglass? The first time I heard of this book was during the Jackson Pearce interviews  (#JacksonPearce on Twitter) that she was conducting on Livestream a few weeks ago. Myra McEntire came on, answered questions, and talked about her book. It sounded interesting, and then she went and mentioned a mysterious organization called The Hourglass. That's when I became totally fascinated. I'm definitely picking this one up when it comes out, but I can hardly wait for it!!
