Love In Touch

“A heartwarming and beautiful story, and a glimpse into a world most wouldn’t consider even imagining.” -Gail R. Delaney, author of Precious Things

Kassie has felt adrift ever since her dad died when she was in college. Now 24 and living in Seattle, she gets interested in learning sign language through her roommate, a sign language interpreter. One day at a Deaf community event, she sees a young man sitting off by himself. Kassie feels compelled to try signing to him–the fact that he’s strikingly handsome doesn’t hurt.

Jake has been deaf and blind since birth. His disability has cut him off from the world, but beneath his isolated exterior, is a smart, sweet guy with a dry sense of humor. Despite the odds, he’s highly educated, but at 26, he’s gotten stuck in a rut, with few friends and no clear career plans. Until a sweet-smelling girl introduces herself to him unexpectedly, and opens up a whole new world to him.

Jake is more intelligent, more genuine than anyone she has met before, and for the first time Kassie starts to feel like her life has some direction. But as their friendship deepens into something more, the difficulty in communicating with each other only grows, and it seems like everyone they know thinks their relationship won’t work. How can they come to a deeper understanding of each other, and a find a future together?

how to write

You’re writing a book and one of your characters has a physical disability. Maybe it’s crucial to the plot. Maybe you thought it would be nice to give your character a more unique and unusual back story. Maybe you just want a realistic book and in real life sometimes people have disabilities.

Even in a fiction book, you’re going to want to get the details right. Is someone with a vision impairment really going to walk up to a stranger and start feeling his face? Can someone with Muscular Dystrophy feel their legs? How does someone without legs drive a car? How does a spinal cord injury really impact sexual function?

This book has the answers. It is divided up into sections for nine common physical disabilities you may want to give your characters. Each section includes…

    • An overview of the disability
    • An explanation of the causes of this disability
    • The physical effects of the disability
    • Adaptations and equipment a person with this disability might use
    • Common misconceptions

The second part includes helpful essays about disability in fiction, including common cliches to avoid and playing with stereotypes.

The information in this book will guide you in creating a unique and compelling story where physical disability adds to the richness of the book you are creating.

annabelle costaClaudia’s geeky boyfriend Adam has just invented a time machine.

No, really—he has. She doesn’t believe it either until Adam provides her with definitive proof that he does, in fact, have a functioning time travel device sitting in the living room of his Manhattan brownstone.

But instead of getting ready to accept the Nobel Prize, Adam has very different plans for his groundbreaking invention. He wants Claudia to use the machine to travel back in time and stop the accident that landed him in a wheelchair over a decade ago, and prevent the trajectory of events that he believes ruined his life.

When Claudia reluctantly agrees to become the first human time traveler, she knows she’s making a big gamble. If she succeeds, she could have the happy ending with commitment-phobic Adam that she’s always dreamed of. But if she fails, it could mean the end of the universe as she knows it.
