Best Gay Erotica 2009

An Officer and His Gentleman

I recently saw this information on Consortium Book Sales and Distribution.

An Officer and His Gentleman

Ryan Field (Author)

Brody Johnston, bad boy naval officer on extended leave from his post in Europe, can’t take his eyes off innocent Chance’s round butt and smooth legs. He is determined to get to know him better, and Brody is used to getting what he wants. Though they are complete opposites, Chance is ready to submit to all of Brody’s sexual kinks and desires. And it never occurs to either one of them that they might actually fall in love with each other.

Ryan Field is the author of ten books published by Ravenous Romance, including the best-selling e-books Pretty Man and Take Me Always. His short story “Down the Basement” is included in the Lambda Award–winning Best Gay Erotica 2009.

In August of 2010, An Officer and His Gentleman will be released by Alyson Books, in print.

Lambda Award and new Book Deal…


Sometimes good news comes in twos.
First, this week I found out that AN OFFICER AND HIS GENTLEMAN has been sold to a large publisher with a long standing reputation in the GBLT community for putting out quality books. I’m not going to mention the details yet, because the announcement hasn’t been formally made. But I will as soon as it is. At this point, the book can be purchased on Amazon.com in paperback or kindle, and on ravenousromance.com as an e-book.

Second, I heard some really good news this morning from an editor at Cleis Press, Richard Labonte. It seems that BEST GAY EROTICA 2009 has won a Lambda Award for gay erotica. And my short story, “Down the Basement” was part of the book. So congrats to Richard Labonte and James Lear for putting this award winning anthology together. Congrats to all the other contributors in this book. And a special thank you to Rachel Kramer Bussel for suggesting that my story be included in the book. “Down the Basement” was first published in an anthology by Rachel, titled Crossdressing.”
