Autism Awareness Month – Blog Hop and Giveaway
Apr 10, 2018 Filed under: Uncategorized
Autism Fact: Autism itself does not affect life expectancy, however research has shown that the mortality risk among individuals with autism is twice as high as the general population, in large part due to drowning and other accidents.
During this month of autism awareness, my hope is that people will take an extra moment to consider how they make assumptions and judgments about others. We could all make the world a friendlier, more peaceful place if we remembered that not all of us think in the same ways. If instead of judging a different way of thinking, processing, or interacting as negative, take the opportunity to try on a different perspective or celebrate the diversity around you. I hope we can all accept each other for who we are, not who someone decides we should be.

Sex on the Hoof, Book 1
Deer shifter, Jason Fleetfoot, has turned his life around. After years of taking chances, he’s working as a crime lab technician, and he’s determined to forgo the risky behavior of his past. Then he meets Drew Danvers, the only undead detective in the city. Jason hates vampires, or does he? Drew defies all the stereotypes of his kind and something about him has taken hold of Jason and won’t let go. So Jason might dare to take a chance on a man others would label a risk to his health if not his very life.
Paws on Me, Book 2
When a murder investigation at a shifter nightclub brings owner Brandon Lord and Lieutenant Seth Morrison together, passion roars to life. They’re both willing to break the rules to be together. Because as mismatched as they might seem, each man is exactly what the other needs.
Dinner at Foxy’s, Book 3
Fox shifter Luke runs Foxy’s Chicken Shack, known for the best and spiciest chicken in town. For months he’s had his eye on Silas, a young cop who patrols the area around his restaurant. When Silas arrives to question Luke about his cousins’ criminal activities, things blow up, literally, and Silas is injured. Luke will do whatever it takes to see his cousins brought to justice. He might not survive his crazy plan, but if he does, there could be a chance at love for this fox shifter and his cop.
Hoofin’ it to the Altar, Book 4
Deer shifter Jason Fleetfoot and vampire detective Drew Danvers have been together for a year. When Drew proposes, Jason is thrilled but shocked—vampires aren’t usually the marrying kind, even the few who side with the good guys.
Other books in the Law and Supernatural Order series that are not included: Savage Wolf (an m/f prequel) and Law and Supernatural Order Extras (Coming Soon)
Thank you for participating in RJ’s Autism Awareness Blog Hop.
As a mother of an autistic son (now 30), I know how important acceptance is. We have helped him as much as possible, but we always let him be, let him be himself.
Recently I have read two books with characters who are really acceptant of their partner.
In Squared Away by Annabeth Albert Marc is demisexual, gray ace, and his partner Isaiah totally understands and won’t push Marc farther than he wants.
The other one is Syncopation by Anna Zabo in which Ray has no trouble whatsover with Zavier being aromantic.

Thank you for taking part in the blog hop. As for your question, my favourite film would be What’s eating Gilbert Grape? (1993) with a very young Johnny Depp in charge of his brother and mother… I was quite young when I first saw it, and I really liked it

One of the books that I’d read, loved and found an accepting character was Becoming Kerry by Lynn Kelling, the character in mention was Ewyn.

I have two on the Spectrum. I have spent years educating myself and learning all that I can. We moved to this house six years ago when the school told me my kids were only there for socialization and they couldn’t do anything more. We work with the Developmental Disabilities Organization. The path there hasn’t been easy either, unfortunately. However, about two years ago we got a new liaison and I am amazed at the difference. She goes above and beyond her job description for my family.
