 Trembling on the floor, pressed beneath a row of seats in a dark theater, college freshman Jason Tripp listens to the terrifying sound of gunshots, as an unknown shooter moves methodically through the theater, randomly murdering men, women, and children attending a student performance of Hamlet. Junior Liam Norcross drapes his massive body on top of Jason, sheltering the younger man from the deathly hail of bullets, risking his life willingly and maybe even eagerly.

 

As a result of the shared horror, an extraordinary bond forms between the two young men, which causes discomfort for family and friends, as well as for Jason and Liam, themselves. And added to the challenge of two previously “straight” men falling into a same-sex love, are the complications that arise from the abundance of secrets Liam holds with regard to a past family tragedy. The fledgling passion between the men seems bound to fade away into the darkness from which it emerged.

Jason, however, is inexplicably called to rescue his hero in return, by delving into Liam’s shady past and uncovering the mystery that compels the older man to act as the college town’s selfless savior.

The Art of Hero Worship takes the reader on a voyage from the dark and chilling chaos that accompanies a mass shooting to the thrill of an unexpected and sensual romance.

 

I am so happy to be here today to promote the release of my new release, and adult contemporary romance called The Art of Hero Worship. I listen to a lot of music as I plan out a novel, as well as when I write. One of the songs that inspired this story is “Follow You Down” by the Gin Blossoms.

 

In The Art of Hero Worship, at a certain point in their relationship both Jason and Liam have to say, “I can be with you, but not if it means sacrificing my mental health.” Each man knows that he wants to “follow” the other, or, be in a relationship with the other. However, early in the story, Liam draws a line when Jason doesn’t return his efforts at communication. Later, Jason lets Liam know that if he continues to walk a certain path, he will not be able to walk beside him. “Follow You Down” illustrates that despite the amount of love shared, drawing a line is not an easy thing to do, but sometimes is a necessary part of love.

Did you see the sky I think it means that we've been lost

Maybe one less time is all we need

I can't really help it if my tongue's all tied in knots

Jumping off a bridge it's just the farthest that I've ever been and

Anywhere you go, I'll follow you down

Anyplace but those I know by heart

Anywhere you go, I'll follow you down

I'll follow you down, but not that far

I know we're headed somewhere, I can see how far we've come

But still I can't remember anything

Let's not do the wrong thing and I'll swear it might be fun

It's a long way down when all the knots we've tied have come undone

Anywhere you go, I'll follow you down

Anyplace but those I know by heart

Anywhere you go, I'll follow you down

I'll follow you down, but not that far

How you gonna ever find your place?

Running in an artificial pace

Are they gonna find us lying face down in the sand?

So what the hell now, we've already been forever damned

Anywhere you go, I'll follow you down

Anyplace but those I know by heart

Anywhere you go, I'll follow you down

I'll follow you down, but not that far

Anywhere you go, I'll follow you down

Anyplace but those I know by heart

Anywhere you go, I'll follow you down

I'll follow you down, but not that far

I'll follow you down, but not that far

I'll follow you down, but not that far


Author Bio

Author Bio Picture.jpg

Mia Kerick Adult is an award-winning author of stories involving the type of life events that are riveting to read about, but you probably wouldn’t want to experience first hand. Into her fictional disasters, she sprinkles a sufficient quantity of touching and spicy adult LGBTQ romance to keep her readers coming back for more.

Having relocated from Boston, Massachusetts to rural New Hampshire, Mia lives with her doting husband, four brilliant and accomplished young adult children who will one day likely contribute to the establishment of world peace (Mia believes in self-fulfilling prophecies), and at least three too many cats. She suffers with a severe case of mall-withdrawal, which leads to frequent online shopping and an overly personal relationship with the UPS driver.
