Echo Available

by Ashlynmathews on May 23, 2017

I’m so excited to announce the release of my fourth book in the Extinction series, Echo. Echo and Rourke’s story began in 2011. Over the years, the heroine, Echo and the hero, Rourke, have gone through many transformations as their motivations changed. After Luminescence, I had a better idea of what their struggles and past hurts are. I think that’s the hardest part of writing. To better understand our characters and their motivations. What drives them to do what they do? What keeps them for going after their happily ever after? What is it about the guy or girl they fall for that changes them, hopefully for the better? When I wrote Echo, one particular line said by Echo in response to her friend, Cage Steele, hiring a bodyguard for her, stood out. She said, “I can never ask anyone to KILL for me.” Why? What happened in her past that she would say that? Then, as I kept writing to the finish line of, “The end,” the line changed to, “I can never ask anyone to DIE for me.” And that’s when I had the aha moment. Someone died for her to keep her alive, and that is why she keeps insisting that her bodyguard, Rourke Summers, rescind his contract. She realizes he stands between her and the assassin sent after her. She’d rather sacrifice her life than have someone else lose their life for her. Who died for her, and why? The answers was as surprising to me as I hope it is to the readers.

Echo is available at Amazon, iBooks, Kobo, and Nook.
