About this project
I have always wondered what it would be like to live without one of the five human senses. Someone once asked me the question "Would you rather be deaf or blind?" and that is something I have given a ton of thought to since. I am writing five stories (one for each of the five senses) about characters who suddenly (or not so suddenly) lose one of their senses and how they deal with that loss. I'm giving you the chance to even be part of the stories if you want to name a character after yourself!
Think about how you would deal with losing your sense of touch, taste, smell, hearing, or sight. Some are easier to comprehend than others, but all bring up very interesting questions when you really sit down and think about them.
You will be helping to cover the costs of self publishing my book and get it off the ground with both an on demand print publisher and an ebook publisher.
