"Fast-paced and thrilling. ECHOES is a heart-pounding and addictive love story." —Mia Siegert, author of Jerkbait
Release Date: August 7th, 2018
They wake on a deserted island. Fiona and Miles, high school enemies now stranded together. No memory of how they got there. No plan to follow, no hope to hold on to.
Each step forward reveals the mystery behind the forces that brought them here. And soon, the most chilling discovery: something else is on the island with them.
Something that won't let them leave alive.
Echoes is a thrilling adventure about confronting the impossible, discovering love in the most unexpected places, and, above all, finding hope in the face of the unknown.
Choosing a Title
I’m pretty sure a good portion of writers run away screaming at the mere thought of having to name their WIP (work in progress). Or maybe that’s just me.
Personally, I think finding the perfect title for your story is incredibly hard, and I usually go through a bunch of them until I find one I’m happy with. But even then that title is likely going to change once again when your book goes on submission or when you sign it because publishers/editors/agents simply have a better feel for what titles work and fit and which don’t.
A lot of things go into titles. It has to fit the story, make sense in relation to the plot, mirror the mood/themes/aesthetic/style of the book, be something that works for whatever genre your book belongs to—you’d hardly call a YA Horror Summer Kisses and Strawberries—and many other factors I have no idea of. I can only imagine how hard it is to choose titles, and title schemes, that work for a trilogy or series, or finding titles that haven’t been done yet in general.
ECHOES ended up having a very simple and short title, one word, that’s it. It perfectly fits the story, and also doesn’t really give anything away, which was important to me since ECHOES is the sort of story where, the less you know, the better.
Thank you so much for having me! :)
