Virtual Blog Tour

On Septermber 26 I am hosting Dwayne G. Anderson in one of his stops in his virtual blog tour.

His web site is . His new book is Partially Human.

One of the interesting things about Dwayne is that he has a condition known as Asperger Syndrome. I had no idea what that was so I Googled the term. Two places that seem to give a description I can understand is Wikipeida and O.A.S.I.S. at . It seems it is a form of Autism.

In spite of this condition, Dwayne has made a life for himself and has had three books published.

His latest is Partially Human. Here is an excerpt:

For Joshua Plofhard, a teenage Good Samaritan from Los Angeles, life is good. Well-known and well-liked by the city, loved by his friends, and adored by his new girlfriend, Joshua had it all. But when he becomes the victim of a freak mugging, a shocking revelation about him is revealed, triggering a chain reaction of events that will forever change his life.When it is discovered that Joshua carries the genes of a dying alien species in his body, life for him is turned up-side down. Now an outcast, rejected by the city that once embraced him, Joshua is emotionally shattered by the events that have taken their toll upon him. With only his mother Alicia, friends Peter Christjes, Eric Blonfly, Rick Warris, girlfriend Kimberly Derth, and several others who come to sympathize with his plight, Joshua begins to pick up the pieces of his life.But Joshua's problems are only just beginning. Not only has Patrick Urtoma, a government agent sent to investigate this alien teenager, but Veranda Oltzon, a candidate in the upcoming mayor election is exploiting the discrimination Joshua suffers to rally the public to her side. Also not helping is a mysterious serial killer who has now marked Joshua for death, driven by extreme prejudice against people like him.As the countdown to his nineteenth birthday continues, the day when the alien return to reclaim what they created, Joshua learns many lessons of self-acceptance, friendship, compassion, loyalty, love, and how being different makes on unique. Together, he and his friends shall stand together against the prejudice of an entire city and plea for tolerance towards all individuals, no matter who they are.
