A lot of us read contemporary cowboy romance, historical cowboy romance, cowboy erotica, cowboy paranormal, etc… And so what I want to know is…who is your favorite cowboy author and/or what is your favorite cowboy book?
For me… Delilah Devlin writes some pretty hot and very dirty cowboys. There’s also Lorelei James, Sophie Oak, Vivian Arend, and Cat Johnson. Because this is my blog and my post, I don’t have to pick a favorite book! Grins… But YOU, darlin’ reader, do!
Let’s hear it… Oh and, there might be a giveaway in it for someone…
A few months ago, author Delilah Devlin put out a call for cowboy stories to include in an anthology from Cleis Press. These were to be short stories and after some thought, I decided to write and submit one. I spent weeks on the 4500 word story. I spent days reading, revising, reading, revising, reading, etc… to get it just right, to get it perfect enough. Delilah writes awesome cowboys. I don’t ever pass up on of her cowboy books. Ever. She’s an amazing author who I admire more than words. I was able to spend some time with her at the Lori Foster con over the summer and I sat enthralled whenever she talked. I learned a lot from her in just a short period, so when she put out this call, I knew I had to try.
It paid off, this taking a chance thing. My story, Small Town Famous, will be included. It’s about a couple, Bethann and Tommy, who have been together since high school, who live in sin, who love each other fiercely, who are rather well known for their public sexual escapades. When a new girl comes to town and dares to lay a hand on Tommy, all hell breaks loose in the form of a shot gun, Bethann behind bars, and Tommy all kinds of turned on. It was a fun little story, inspired by Miranda Lambert’s song, Famous in a Small Town.
The title of the anthology is Cowboy Lust and it will be available come Fall 2012.
Other authors include Cari Quinn, Cat Johnson, Delilah Devlin, Cheyenne Blue, and Charlene Teglia. For a full list of authors and for the full write up of the book’s introduction, click here to be taken to Delilah’s blog.
I am so excited!
Oh, and we have 23 days left before the release of Twisted Up!
Have a great Sunday!
What’s a skeptical gal to do when Fate interferes and drops a hot, young cowboy in the chair next to her as she’s nursing a beer and wallowing in feelings of failure?
Well, avoid Fate and the horse she rode in on, of course.
At least that’s what Ella tried to do. Luckily for her, the Fate believing cowboy named Justin was having none of that.
Twisted Up by Lissa Matthews coming December 20, 2011 from Samhain Publishing. Mark your calendars…
