Meet Dan Delacor, an utterly boring citizen of Yellow City. Every day he puts on his yellow shoes, yellow shirt, yellow pants, and yellow tie, and catches a ride on the Tunnel Runner from the suburbs into downtown. He has a job, a home, and a girlfriend, and he never wonders what waits beyond the giant glass wall that surrounds Yellow City.Except… Dan isn’t as boring as he seems. He often wonders why everything in Yellow City has to be yellow. He wonders why he suffers frequent anxiety attacks, and why he can’t help himself from strolling through dangerous neighborhoods, or running wildly through the fields that separate downtown from the suburbs. Mostly though, Dan wonders why he can’t remember how he lost his right arm, or anything that happened before five years ago.
So, when Dan’s mundane yellow world is interrupted with the seemingly impossible presence of a little red dog named Dean, he quickly finds out there are answers to his questions, and that everything he knows is a lie.
Follow Dan as he learns the secrets of his true identity, the scope of the world beyond the wall, and the true intentions of Yellow City’s mysterious leader, Chancellor Elgrey Vinsidian. Meet Wendy, the twelve-year-old girl on a rescue mission, Echo Valkzdokker, the woman with a love for danger, James Perkins, the wily pilot who has a way with words, and Bianna Kensington, the cold-mannered rebel with a cause. Look through the cracks of this new world with Dan as he learns why his little friend is nicknamed The Dean Machine, what special bond they share, and why the dog deserves a legacy that should live on forever.
He lives to love.
He would die to protect.
His heart is a machine.
FROM THE AUTHOR
I have pledged to donate a portion of my royalties from the book to animal rescue shelters for as long as the book is in publication. This is how I plan to honor Dean’s memory. I implore you to visit my website, http://www.dylanleepeters.com. I have an area set up for The Dean Machine with the preface of the book (which explains my relationship with Dean and why I was inspired to write The Dean Machine), a sample chapter, book artwork, and pictures and video of the real Dean (he was a very cute old man).
The book is currently available to the public on Amazon.com, for kindle ($2.99) and in paperback ($9.99).
I appreciate your time and hope you are interested in reading The Dean Machine.
Thank you sincerely,
Dylan Lee Peters
