Ryan Field Print Books
Here are more books I just released in paperback. For those who don’t read e-books, this is an alternative. I’m actually excited to see how the covers look in paperback. I’ve never really seen these books other than in digital format.
Chase of a Dream (unabridged) This was the book where I released two versions, one with sex scenes and the other without. Both books are identical and I only had to remove 7,000 words to make it pg rated. I did self-censor this book on purpose, but I put up both versions. The covers are identical but it’s clearly marked which is abridged and which isn’t.
Chase of a Dream (abridged) Here’s the version without sex scenes.
Chase of a Christmas Dream is another book in the Chase series.
Please keep in mind that the Create Space links are accurate, but sometimes it takes time for Amazon to put things up and if you don’t see it there are this very moment, you will very soon.
Ben Cohen’s Big Bear Hug
This is one of those multi-photo pieces where the well known post things on social media. I like them, and some of the photos are interesting. It’s mindless entertainment…and harmless.
You’ll like some of them. I work a lot and don’t always have time to keep up with what’s happening in pop culture and these little things to me are like a crash course in who’s who.
Bette Midler Shade Toss for Caitlyn Jenner
First Bette/Britt Midler goes after Justin Bieber in a tweet that came out of nowhere and was totally unprovoked by Bieber. Say what you will about Justin, but he really didn’t do anything to warrant Bette/Britt Midler’s Twitter attack. And, she went after his DAD. Who does that?
And now this:
And now her attention has moved to a subject that many seem to be thinking but few are will to say: Caitlyn Jenner and her inexplicable Republican values.
Someone should tell her.
Bette/Britt should stick to singing and mind her own damn business when it comes to what someone else believes in politically. It’s just none of her business.
You do get the right to believe in whatever you want to believe in the US. You don’t get the right to tell anyone else what to believe in, or to question their beliefs. You don’t have to agree with them, but there’s this word called tolerance that those on the far left and the far right really need to learn more about.
You can also read Bette/Britt’s nasty tweet there as well. I’m not going to bother quoting her here.
Jake Gyllenhaal and Gay Marriage
This is interesting because it’s a quote by Jake Gyllenhaal on how he thinks the movie, Brokeback Mountain, helped push equality forward…in a general sense.
I think it is changing… and it’s pretty amazing how it’s changing. And one of the things that I’m so proud about [Brokeback Mountain is that], within the past basically 10 years, how much has changed.
When the Supreme Court [issued a ruling] just a little while ago, I felt like we had been part, a little part and parcel of that movement. I was proud, you know? To me that’s really a pretty incredible moment. We had to wait a little while for it. But when will it be OK for an actor to be gay? I mean, it’s OK now.
Heath was always somebody who I admired. He was way beyond his years as a human, in a way. I wasn’t quite sure where he came from. I mean, I know he’s from Perth, but I wasn’t really quite sure where he came from, and I think that’s the feeling most people got when they were around him and why he was so extraordinary.”
I actually do agree with Gyllenhaal. Even though I would never minimize all the hard work that went on behind the scenes with court cases and constant, endless battles for equality that most straight people don’t know about, little films from the straight community like Brokeback Mountain did help when it came to educating the mainstream. It brought the topic up front and out in the open for the first time while everything else was going on behind the scenes and while all the hard work for real equality was actually being done.
