Sneak Preview: "With This Cowboy I Love So Freely"

I like to post these sneak previews because they inform readers about upcoming books, and they actually keep me organized. When something is up on the blog, it’s always a good source for me to go back and use if I need to do it. And I never know when that might happen.

The following information is from my upcoming anthology with Loveyoudivine.com. For those who follow this blog, you’ve seen me mention more than once that LYD is the first e-publisher I ever worked with, and I started doing that about seven years ago. Up until that point, all I knew about e-publishing was it was something people in “real” publishing didn’t talk about openly.

But I soon found out that LYD and e-publishing in general was something I loved. It gave me the freedom to write gay fiction and gay romance I would never have been allowed to write in traditional publishing. And this anthology I’m talking about now is a collection of short cowboy love stories I’ve built over the past seven years with LYD. It’s not all I’ve done with them, but we wanted to focus only on western themed stories this time.

I don’t have a cover or release date yet, but I will post more when I do, with a full list of stories and an excerpt.

I wanted the title of the anthology to reflect so much of the hidden passion with respect to gay men, cowboys, and gay love. And the word “freely” was not used by accident.

Tag Line and blurb:

 A male-male cowboy anthology filled with love, passion, emotion, and the promise of a bright tomorrow   

In this collection of Ryan Field stories that is focused on erotic cowboy love, the gay romance and emotion isn’t overlooked either. In “A Life Filled with Awesome Love” set in 1959, young Travis finds the cowboy of his dreams through an ad in the back of a rodeo magazine. In “Something for Saint Jude,” the main character finds his passion, but he had to take a cruise to discover it was in his backyard all along. And then there’s poor Noah in “Cowboy Mike and Buddy Boy” who falls in love with a married Cowboy and he doesn’t know where to run when the wife finds out. One story is slightly quirky, and the love and emotion is focused more on positive self-discovery than finding a man. And then there’s a New Adult story in “Cowboy Howdy,” where two young guys from different parts of the country meet and fall in love their first semester in college. This is a book of true love in its finest form, and the ability with which to love freely and openly. In a world where love is the only thing that promises a happy ending.            

Just Got the ARC for MISSING JACKSON’S HOLE

I just received the ARC for my new stand alone, MISSING JACKSON’S HOLE. For those of you who prefer m/m romances, this might not be the book for you. But if you prefer an erotic story about the old west, with a cast of young, sexy cowboys, you might enjoy this.

I can’t thank Dawne Dominque enough for coming up with this wonderful cover. And I can’t thank Dalia at loveyoudivine enough for doing such a wonderful job on the edits. The release date is set for September 3rd, and the sell copy is below.

Poor young Jackson isn’t thrilled about his new job, working the night shift in the town’s telegraph office. He’s not only terrified of being alone, but panic stricken about being alone in the dark. He misses his old job, where he took care of a ranch full of big strong cowboys, including setting up their baths each week and catering to all their needs. He only took the new job at the telegraph office because the money was good. But when he starts to dread going to work at night, he decides to write a letter of resignation and beg for his old job back.

Then a few of the cowboys who’ve been missing Jackson just as much as he’s been missing them stop by to see how he’s doing. They miss their baths; they miss the way he used to dry them off with gentle strokes. And Jackson is more than willing to take good care of them in the back room of his new office, where he discovers he’s not as lonely as he thought he was and his new job isn’t all that bad after all.
