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.
