It’s Here! The Silence Between Us cover!

Hello, you lovely readers!

I am SO very excited to share with you all the cover for my upcoming novel, The Silence Between Us.

I’m even more excited to share this #OwnVoices novel with you all, which tells the story of a Deaf teen attending a hearing school and figuring out her way in life.

This fantastic cover was created by the superbly talented Deaf artist Nancy Rourke. I am still in raptures at how gorgeous it is!

Coming 2019…BOOK TWO!

Hello you lovely readers!

I am so unbelievably thrilled to announce that just this past week I was made an offer of publication for my second book!

As you can imagine, I am absolutely over the moon excited about this, and I can’t wait for you all to read this story.

The working title is currently THE SILENCE BETWEEN US, and is being tagged as an #ownvoices piece. The official press release tells it as:

“Author of IN 27 DAYS Alison Gervais’ THE SILENCE BETWEEN US is an #ownvoices story of a Deaf teen who must navigate a new life, and love, when she starts a hearing school.”

Right now I work as a D/deaf/HOH services specialist at an Independent Living Center, and I also happen to be Hard of Hearing. I started losing my hearing when I was about five, and its declined since then. I wear a neon purple hearing aid, and it’s just the best thing ever.

I’ve had the opportunity of working with Deaf consumers of all walks of life and am so overjoyed to be apart of the Deaf community in my area. Telling this story means so much to me, and I am overjoyed to share it with you all.

(Check out my Instagram if you want to see the video I made announcing the new book!)

I’m very lucky to be work with Blink YA Books again and their fantastic editorial team, and I can’t wait to see what happens as we start the publishing process with this new story!

Stay tuned for more info as it comes along!

 

Lots of love,
