Blog Tour: Getting His Man (Getting His Man, #1) by B.G. Thomas

B.G. Thomas is here today to tell us about his latest Dreamspun Desires novel, Getting His Man & ICYMI see our 4 review of it HERE.

Promotion for Boy Meets Boy

My mom was always reading. She taught me to love books. And if it was a book a little above my reading level, then she read them to me!

Of course the books she was reading for her own pleasure and the books she was reading to me were very different. She was reading me The Time Machine by H.G. Wells and a book about the coelacanth, something very exciting to a little boy who loved dinosaurs. And she was reading Harlequin and Silhouette romances.

Well that confused a little boy! Why a book with a man and woman kissing on the cover when she could be reading a book about an ancient living fossil? So I asked her.

This is what she told me. “It’s because of the happy endings,” she said. “And I love to read about people falling in love. I like knowing before I ever start the book that nothing really bad will happen. I like knowing they will have their happily ever after.” Eeeeeeww! I thought. How gross.

And here I am blankety-blank years later writing just those kinds of stories. Except of course they’re about boys kissing boys. But they’re still falling in love and they are still getting their happily ever afters.

You know they whole time I was writing this book I couldn’t help but think of my mother. It made me feel pretty warm and bubbly inside. Like things had come full circle or something. It feels nice.

Something else too….

When I was in high school Mom told me that another thing she liked about those books is that there was no cheating. And in the Dreamspun Desires books, there is no cheating. And not a lot of angst.

And when you are a writer who normally writes books with lots of angst let me tell you something. Writing a book with no angst, no cheating, and a big happily ever after was very fun to write. Lots of fun! And having that much fun means that a lot of that fun made its way into the pages of my book Getting His Man.

Here is the cover blurb:

A love story worthy of an old movie... with a new twist.

Artie needs a hero, a man like those he’s always revered in Golden Age films. His drug-dealing jerk of a roommate got him arrested, and since his savior isn’t likely to sweep in and save the day, Artie calls a bail bondsman.

August has always imagined himself a hero from a black-and-white movie, but he’s never found a man willing to let him play that role—at least not until he gets the call from Artie.

Both of their dreams might come true, but not before August must use his skills as a bounty hunter as well as a bondsman. Artie is on the run for his life, and August must protect him and help him clear his name. Only then can they both finally get their man.

That novel is out right now and just ready for you to read. You will find a sweet young man named Artie that gets caught up in something that scares him to death. And it is also about a macho bounty hunter hero named August who sweeps in and rescues him. Or does he? Maybe, just maybe, Artie rescues him….

And hey, after you’re done reading it, I would love to hear what you think!

Love, Namaste, and Happy Holidays!

B.G. Thomas lives in Kansas City with his husband of more than a decade and their fabulous dogs Sarah Jane and Oliver. He is blessed to have a lovely daughter as well as many extraordinary friends. He has a great passion for life.

B.G. loves romance, comedies, fantasy, science fiction, and even horror—as far as he is concerned, as long as the stories are character driven and entertaining, it doesn’t matter the genre. He has gone to literature conventions his entire adult life where he’s been lucky enough to meet many of his favorite writers. He has made up stories since he was a child; it is where he finds his joy.

In the nineties, he wrote for gay adult magazines but stopped because the editors wanted all sex without plot. “The sex is never as important as the characters,” he says. “Who cares what they are doing if we don’t care about them?” Excited about the growing male/male romance market, he began writing again. He submitted a novella and was thrilled when it was accepted in four days. Since then the romantic tales have poured out of him. “It’s like I’m somehow making up for a lifetime’s worth of story-telling!”

In 2015 he made an entry every day in his blog “365 Days of Silver,” where he found something every day to be grateful for. You can find it right here:

“Leap, and the net will appear” is his personal philosophy and his message. “It is never too late,” he testifies. “Pursue your dreams. They will come true!”
