Jake and Dallas’ story is now up for pre-order on Amazon. This is my first take on contemporary romance and how two men deal with the darkness shadowing Jake’s life.

There’s This Guy
How do you save a drowning man when that drowning man is you?

Jake Moore’s world fits too tightly around him. Every penny he makes as a welder goes to care for his dying father, an abusive, controlling man who’s the only family Jake has left. Because of a promise to his dead mother, Jake resists his desire for other men, but it leaves him consumed by darkness.

It takes all of Dallas Yates’s imagination to see the possibilities in the fatigued art deco building on WeHo’s outskirts, but what seals the deal is a shy smile from the handsome metal worker across the street. Their friendship deepens while Dallas peels back the hardened layers strangling Jake’s soul. It’s easy to love the sweet, artistic man hidden behind Jake’s shattered exterior, but Dallas knows Jake needs to first learn to love himself.

When Jake’s world crumbles, he reaches for Dallas, the man he’s learned to lean on. It’s only a matter of time before he’s left to drift in a life he never wanted to lead and while he wants more, Jake’s past haunts him, making him doubt he’s worth the love Dallas is so desperate to give him.

I’m already contemplating swag for the fall con season. So many options! And since I’ll be on a road trip with some of the San Diego Crewe, it’ll be a week long fun event. We’ll be hitting up Las Vegas, The Grand Canyon’s South Rim and Durango before we pull into Denver via Colorado Springs.

#GRLRoadCrewe2017 for the win!

 

There’s This Guy has a cover update!

There's This Guy by Rhys FordAfter a little bit of deliberation, a tagline’s been added to TTG’s cover, mostly because well, I want people to know this isn’t a mystery but rather a contemporary romance.

As told by me. So, take that as you will.

Still available at Dreamspinner Press and I hope to have third-party links soon.

There’s been a bit of question about the cover….mostly, hot guy but what’s with the colour? I wanted something that conveyed Jake’s world changing, pulling him out of the greys and into a vibrant, colourful world. Dallas walks with him as Jake makes that emotional journey, and that’s pretty much what the book is about.

So, watch for it on March 17, 2017! And I’ll let you all know if it goes on sale at any time between then and now.

Wednesday.

You know, I can spell that word—Wednesday—but to this day, I still end up sounding it out in my head as I spell it. Wed-Nes-Day. Go figure.

I’ve lost a lot of my brain with this cold. My fingers can’t seem to remember which letters go first and where. It’s very annoying. Hopefully I’ll come out the other side in a day or so. Just headaches and a bit of sniffles left.

theres_this_guy_rhysford_smallThere’s This Guy is almost upon us. Three Weeks! This will be out on 17 March 2017! I hope you enjoy it. My take on a contemporary.

I decided I’m going to do colouring book pages of mandalas for the tour. The purpose / reason being Jake’s transition from a lifeless grey-scale world to one of colour and vibrant emotion. Which is kind of what the cover symbolizes.

Hoping for Third Party links soon.

Also, do not forget…

If you are in the UK, TA Moore and I will be having a meet up with readers on 22 March at about 6ish pm. I’m looking for someplace near the Kings Cross station so it’ll be easier for people to get in and out. I’ve got a few spots in mind but if anyone has suggestions, that would be great. I’ll select one and announce it. I figure coffee and some light noms? Someplace we can talk without shouting over pub or screaming people.

I will be at the Dreamspinner Booth at Salon du Livre (Paris Book Fair) with TA Moore on 25 March 2017 from 12-2. I will also be at the Reines-Beaux Booth on that Sat AND Sunday and I will share those times when I get them.

Blergh

This cold / flu…. whatever it is… is kicking my ass. I have a fight scene I want to expand in Dim Sum and I’ve just refilled my coffee. I am armed with pretzel sticks and the dog has a Kong ball full of peanut butter.

I am going in.
