COVER REVEAL for SOUND of SILENCE by Mia Kerick and Raine O’Tierney

Today is a big day for us- it is cover reveal day for our new YA novel, Sound of Silence CREATED by  the AMAZING and TALENTED AARON ANDERSON!!


Raine has history of co-writing with other MM authors, but this experience is a first for me. Co-writing was an amazing process, because although we had a strong idea of where the plot of Sound of Silence was going, our characters were able to play off each other in a different way than could multiple characters  created in a single mind. Sometimes Seven and Renzy threw each other curve balls and other times they melted in each other’s arms. We had to become our characters as we responded in writing to unexpected actions as we journeyed through the plot.


Here is the blurb for SOUND of SILENCE:

Renzy Callen exists on the periphery of life, and not just because of the horrific childhood event that robbed him of the ability to speak. Walling himself off from the rest of the world as a means of protection, he occupies his time with art, music, and an obsession with self-help groups—whether he needs them or not. His isolation protects him, and he’s immune to drama and emotional games… or so he believes. Everything changes when he meets Seven and Morning Moreaux-Maddox, the wealthy, jet-setting siblings who move from a life of sophistication in Europe to humdrum Redcliff Hills, Missouri.

Both Seven and his sister are impossibly beautiful and elegant, like the stars in magazines and high-fashion models on the runway. When Renzy is pulled into their push-and-pull of affection and rejection, he realizes there is more to both haunted Morning and cold, diamond-sharp Seven than meets the eye.

The three teens embark on a quest to learn the reason behind Renzy’s selective mutism, and something more than friendship blossoms between Renzy and Seven. It’s during this trip of a lifetime that the three realize the truth they seek might be found in the sound of silence.

Sound of Silence will be released from Harmony Ink Press on January 23, 2018.
