Today, I have the great pleasure of hosting the fabulous ALICE REEDS!
Part figure skating lover, book addict, and psychology and space nerd, Alice Reeds lives in Europe and spends most of her time typing away on another manuscript or watching one too many YouTube videos.
And now, for some awesome cover
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.
And here’s her EXCLUSIVE CONTENT!
Take it away, Alice …
I’m really excited to share some ECHOES related music with you for the YA Scavenger Hunt. I’ve loved music since I was a child, grew up with Pink Floyd and Led Zepplin playing almost daily, and now I’m obsessing over BTS and SHINee, whatever Tomorrowland set I can get my hands on, or the latest albums my favorite bands and artists have released. I have playlists for basically anything and everything and can’t write, outline, or plot without something playing in the background.
So, today I have three playlists for you, the official ECHOES playlist, as well as one short one for each of my main characters. To be quite honest, putting together the character specific ones was way harder than the book playlist. How do you summarize a character through the use of just three songs? I barely even know which songs I would pick for myself! But, somehow, I’ve managed to do it.
Hope you’ll enjoy this musical insight into my book and happy hunting!
