Cover of the Week (31)



Hourglass by Myra McEntire
EgmontUSA/5.24.2011
Description (from Goodreads):
“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 saw this cover and immediately said “WOW.” And then “ohmygosh, ohmygosh, ohmygosh.” And then “that’s so creepy.” I definitely need that book on my bookshelf, especially when the cover is coupled with the fantastic description!

  1. Who comes up with these covers? I want them to hang out in my spare room just so I can call on them for a spontaneous cover art workup of my manuscript in progress to inspire me through the days that are devoted to my favorite 4-letter word: plot.
