I'm about to blow my own trumpet, so look away now if you're not into hearing people's good news...
I've just published my novel, This Last Summer, on Amazon Kindle and it will also be available in print in a few months. I'm writing about it here because the book features a character with Asperger Syndrome. Ben Chambers isn't the main character - that's his TV reporter sister, Maddie, but my aim was to portray a high-functioning character with AS to show that it is perfectly possible for people with AS to live fulfilling lives, despite their difficulties.
Ben is a young man just completing his Phd, still living at home, but often underestimated, even by his own family. Sure, he has difficulties in tough situations - but he has a good support system and this makes all the difference to him.
I hope I've done a good job with Ben - if you get a chance to buy the download on either Kindle at Amazon UK, Kindle at Amazon US and Smashwords in all sorts of formats. It'll also soon be available on ibook and at Barnes and Noble in the US.
