Waiting on Wednesday #5: “Tempest”

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s Waiting on Wednesday is “Tempest” by Julie Cross.

 

Expected publication: January 3rd 2012 by Thomas Dunne

Description from Goodreads:

Jackson thought he had all the time in the world with Holly. Until time took him away from her . . .

Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy . . . who just happens to be able to travel through time. It’s all just harmless fun until the day Jackson witnesses his girlfriend, Holly, get fatally shot. In his panic, Jackson jumps back two years, but it’s not long before the people who shot Holly come looking for him. And these “Enemies of Time” will stop at nothing to recruit (or kill) this powerful young time-traveler. Jackson must decide how far he is willing to go to save Holly . . . and the entire world.

What book are you waiting for?

“Tempest” may be hitting the big screen at some point:

DEADLINE EXCLUSIVE: In the latest attempt by a book publisher to produce what it publishes, Macmillan Publishers has launched Macmillan Films, a new shingle that will be spearheaded by Brendan Deneen. A former Hollywood development and production executive for Scott Rudin and Harvey & Bob Weinstein, Deneen will start the venture while continuing as an editor at Thomas Dunne Books. Macmillan Films kicks off with a deal with Summit Entertainment for Tempest, a manuscript by Julie Cross that is meant to be the first in a trilogy. The book about a 19-year old time traveler who witnesses his girlfriend’s murder just as he jumps back two years will be published by Thomas Dunne Books, a division of St. Martin’s Press. Sonny Mallhi is producing while Deneen will be executive producer with Roy Lee. Macmillan Films joins Random House Films and Alloy Entertainment as publishing-based enterprises intent on staying involved in certain projects during the filmmaking process.

For those unaware, which I doubt many are at this point, Summit Entertainment is the studio behind the Twilight films. They are also working on movie adaptions of Warm Bodies and Divergent, two books you should check out! 🙂
