Around the World in 10 Days! Globe Trottin’ for Autism!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Join author, Adonya Wong, as she trots around the globe for autism, visiting various websites and blogs during her first-ever virtual book tour!

She will be sharing her thoughts on living with autism, writing, getting published, and future works.  In addition to these interviews, you can read reviews of In My Mind and listen to an audio interview by Autism Hangout.

Adonya’s “Globe Trottin’ for Autism” VBT begins January 19 and ends January 29.

In My Mind creatively explores, through the form of a children’s picture book, the inner world of an autistic child… the world no one else seems to see.   From exciting adventures to silly games and conversations with a range of imaginary friends, the main character of the story, inspired by her son, Nicholas, brings readers into his world to demonstrate how a child with autism sees the world, and, in turn, how the world often sees a child with autism.

Additionally, In My Mind isn’t about defining autism by her own experience. “The book is more my way of trying to ‘explain,’ in an adventurous way, a few of the things my son, and others with autism, do. It’s my perception of how a child with autism sees the world, and, in turn, how the world sees him.”

Excerpt:

In My Mind, I see many colors, bright like a rainbow, shooting about like comets in the night sky. [turn page] What you see is a child staring into nothing.

One lucky reader will win a beautiful gift basket containing an autographed copy of her book, a copy of Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wish You Knew, packages of Enjoy Life™ and Namaste Foods™ goodies, an eco-friendly cleaning starter kit (Whole Foods® 365™ brand), and (1) $50 Amazon.com gift card!!  This prize is valued at $200!!!

**Simply comment about your relationship with autism and what you are doing to raise awareness and how In My Mind has touched your life (I realize not everyone has a copy of In My Mind, so don’t let that stop you from commenting and upping your chances of winning the giveaway!).   Be sure to visit all of her stops to qualify for this amazing prize!**
