An Excerpt From Rough in Wranglers


Hey y’all, I’m BA Tortuga, resident redneck and all around lover of cowboys.

Here’s an excerpt from Cut Bait, one of the eight novellas from the Rough in Wranglers collection.


Rick got everything ready to go, but he suddenly realized the shower wasn’t running.

And Bill wasn’t whistling.

That was weird as fuck.

After washing up, he wandered into the bedroom, wiping his hands on his jeans. “Billy? You all right?”

“Well, I hope so….” Billy was sitting on their bed, still butt-assed naked, holding….

Oh shit.

“Oh. Oh jeez, Billy. Put that away, okay?” He trotted right over and grabbed the lid to the box and popped it back on so all those wildly colored sex toys disappeared.

“Uh. Okay.” Bill didn’t hand the box over, though. “You, uh, got something to tell me, darlin’?”

“No!” Well, that sounded guilty as shit. It wasn’t like he did have something to hide. “Oh hell, honey. Charlene’s trying a new business. One of them party things.”

“Are you hiding her inventory from her kids?”

“No.” His cheeks went hot, his eyes sliding away from Bill’s. “She keeps…. Damn it, Bill, she keeps saying we’re the only ones in the family having any sex.”

Billy blinked a minute, and then that deep, rumbling laugh bubbled out. “Oh. Oh God. Well, darlin’, I’ll take that as a compliment, I guess. Lord.” Billy popped the lid off the box, shaking his head and staring. “Heavens, Rick. Look at the colors.”

“You should see the giant dildo.” Oh, it relieved him to hear that bass rumble of a laugh. He didn’t know what he’d been hiding that shit for.

“Giant dildo? Oh, now. You gotta share.” Bill looked tickled as shit, if a little bemused.

Digging in the closet, he produced the huge, violently pink thing, waggling it at Bill. “What do you think?”

“I think it looks like one of them kosher hot dog deals blowed up to movie-screen size. Good Lord, Rick. Why would someone buy that? Hell, where would you put it?”

He peered at it. “Well, it’s supposed to go in….” But hell if he could see how.

Billy’s eyes went wide. “Shit. I was talking about where in your bedroom. It’s too big to hide in a sock drawer.”


Much love, y’all,

    I think that everything published made a bunch of sense. However,
    what about this? what if you wrote a catchier post title?

    I ain’t suggesting your information is not solid, but suppose you added a headline to
    possibly grab a person’s attention? I mean An Excerpt From Rough in Wranglers by BA Tortuga | Dreamspinner Press Blog | Gay Romance is kinda vanilla.
    You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create post headlines to
    grab people to open the links. You might add a video or a
    picture or two to get readers interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it might make your
    posts a little livelier.
