Back in the UK!

I am back in the UK. The Salon du Livre was fantastic. Dreamspinner Press and Reines-Beaux were lovely for hosting us and it was a lot of fun. Tiring but fun. We had a huge influx of French readers as well as meeting a few French authors, including the lovely and adorable Rose Darcy (whose books I want in English so I can savor them).

At the moment I am in Swindon and planning out the day. Which will probably include a lot of coffee, chatter and maybe Indian food. Or at least a chippie shop stop. Curry sauce. That might be necessary.

I also have to visit with my godcairn, Halle.

There’s a lot of stuff going on over at home… politically. Bah. We just need to ride this out and try to keep each other and the environment safe.

I’ll have pictures once we get all organized. Much love.

The Glorious Cairn Princess Halle… Oh, and three of the Five. Penn, Tamm and Lea.

At the Dreamspinner Press Workshop with Greg Tremblay, Derrick McClain and Joel Froomkin

I wanted to share with you a Facebook Live cast done at the Dreamspinner Author Workshop. We had the gift of three fabulous narrators joining us at the workshop and they took time to answer questions from their live audience as well as from attending authors regarding their work and their talent.

So, here is a narration chat with Derrick McClain Joel Leslie Froomkin and Greg Tremblay

There’s This Guy is now up for pre-order on Amazon!

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.

 

 

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.
