Book: Flying To The Light By Elyse Salpeter (Deaf Character)

Flying To The Light

By Elyse Salpeter

Hi there,

My name is Elyse Salpeter and I’m a writer with Cool Well Press. My new
novel called FLYING TO THE LIGHT is a young adult thriller and was just
released digitally and in print on Amazon, Cool Well Press and now B&N

I wanted to get in touch with you to see if your site promotes new novels
with deaf characters? In my novel, one of the main characters, six year old
Danny Anderson, is deaf. I so seldom see the deaf community represented in
mainstream fiction and I thought you would be interested in seeing the novel
with this little hero and possibly those in the community might wish to
purchase it. I would love to see if you’d like to do a review on the novel
or an author interview or need any additional information from me. Here’s a
recap of the book:

Seventeen year old Michael Anderson and his deaf kid brother, Danny, find
themselves in mortal danger after their parents are kidnapped by ruthless
biophysicist, Samuel Herrington. Michael discovers Danny has a powerful
gift— he knows what happens after a person dies—and now others want to know,
too. The brothers must outwit and outrun Herrington, the FBI, and even
fellow Americans in a harrowing cross-country chase, because whoever gets to
Danny first will have the power to control the fate of every person on
earth. A young adult spiritual thriller with cross over appeal. A new way to
look at life and death; fast-paced with heart-stopping moments of action and

I don’t make Danny’s deafness a disability – it is simply a part of who he
is, but I do make him special and that is something I think your audience
will enjoy.

How far can you run, when you can’t run far enough?

“Salpeter has created a true page turner. Intense, fast-paced, and will only
leave you wanting more. A fine debut.” -David E. Hilton, author of Kings of
Colorado/Simon & Schuster
