You open the cover with eager anticipation. Your fingers impatiently flipping through the pages while your eyes hungrily scan for that tell-tale page — Chapter 1.
Yes. There it is!
Your fingers relax. They’ve found their home. But your eyes take on a fevered gleam as they find and pounce on those first precious words that will launch you into a new world of untold adventure. Your breath catches and the world fades away as you begin to read …
“An ever-present static had moved into my head like a squatter I couldn’t evict, and I thought getting rid of it would be my best shot at survival. Like all I needed was silence, even if only within myself, to feel at home.
