When You Are Mine Autism Awareness Blitz (+Giveaway)Enter a post title

I’m honored today to be participating in author Kennedy Ryan’s WHEN YOU ARE MINE AUTISM AWARENESS BLITZ which runs through end of the month and April is Autism Awareness Month.

WYAM10.1Kennedy’s novel, WHEN YOU ARE MINE debuts through Grand Central/Forever Yours June 17. This book deal has given her the opportunity to marry two of her passions:  Writing and Autism Advocacy. 

Kennedy’s son was diagnosed with Autism 11 years ago, and she started a foundation for Georgia families living with Autism about six years ago. She is partnering with a national organization, Talk About Curing Autism (TACA), and 25% of her personal royalties will go toward resourcing families with Autism.

In honor of Autism Awareness month, Kennedy is offering a giveaway and she’s sharing just a little about her journey with autism. The giveaway is for two gift cards, several books from Forever authors, and Godiva chocolate goodness! Please see the end of the post for more giveaway details.

A Message From Kennedy Ryan 

April is Autism Awareness month. That might not even register on some people's radars, but my family has lived with Autism for the last 11 years, since my son was diagnosed. My book WHEN YOU ARE MINE releases June 17 and provides a unique opportunity for me to combine my passion for writing and Autism advocacy. I'm donating 25% of my royalties from this book to resourcing families living with Autism.  

Learn more about Autism and the 1 in 68 children diagnosed from my charitable partner,
Talk About Curing Autism (TACA).

Celebrate all the gladiators out there - kids, adults, families, siblings - living with Autism by entering the Autism Awareness Giveaway! Great cause! Great prizes!

Thank you!
Kennedy Ryan

Here’s a brief blurb about WHEN YOU ARE MINE - Book 1 Bennett's Trilogy:

Forever is a heartbeat away . . .
        Kerris Moreton knows how to make things work. Bounced from foster home to foster home as a kid, she adapted; when opportunity arose, she thrived. Now, about to open her own business and accept a marriage proposal, Kerris is ready to build the life she's always wanted. The only thing missing? A passionate connection with her would-be fiancĂ©, Cam. Kerris wants to believe that sparks are overrated-until Walsh Bennett lights her up like the Fourth of July.
. . . but what about love?
        As one of the East Coast's most eligible bachelors, Walsh enjoys financial independence, fulfilling work with his family's nonprofit, and plenty of female attention. But lately he's been distracted by the one woman he can't have. Lovely to look at and even sweeter to know, Kerris is the soul mate Walsh never thought he would find. The problem is, his best friend found her first . . .
