Look at this. LOOK AT THIS! What a cover, am I right?!
I KNOW, RIGHT?!
You’ve got it in one, Dean. As many of you know, I’m a huge fan of Deaf culture and ASL in general, so when I got a chance to touch base with Laura Brown about her writing, I was thrilled to see her focus on Deaf and Hard of Hearing characters in novels. I’m especially pleased to help her with the cover reveal for her book! Here’s all the official stuff:
Do you know what hearing loss sounds like? I do.
All my life I’ve tried to be like you. I’ve failed.
So I keep it hidden.
But on the day my world crashed down around me, Reed was there.
He showed me just how loud and vibrant silence can be, even when I struggled to understand.
He’s unlike anyone I’ve ever known. His soulful eyes and strong hands pulled me in before I knew what was happening.
And as I saw those hands sign, felt them sparking on me, I knew: imperfect could be perfect.
Reed makes me feel things I’ve never felt. It’s exciting…and terrifying.
Because he sees me like no one else has, and I’m afraid of what he’ll find if he looks too closely.
The only thing that scares me more than being with him? Letting him go.
SIGNS OF ATTRACTION – coming out June 14, 2016!
