M/M Dancing Dirty by Ryan Field
The innovative hybrid publisher, Riverdale Avenue Books is releasing Dancing Dirty by best-selling Lambda Award winning author Ryan Fields, a retelling of the classic film Dirty Dancing using gay characters, just prior to the ABC live airing on May 24th.
Dancing Dirty takes place in the summer of 1978, the middle of the disco era, and dancing is one of the hottest trends. But 18-year-old Junior has never seen the inside of a gay bar or danced with another man. His mother and father think he's just shy about meeting girls and that he'll grow out of it. All Junior cares about is meeting the right man and falling in love.
But when his parents buy a summer home in an exclusive resort community in the mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania, his prospects of finding love don't look too promising. While his mother and father enjoy all the amenities of the resort, and his sister is flirting with one of the waiters, Junior mopes around watching everyone else have fun. That is until he meets a handsome young dance instructor named Carlo who changes his life in ways he'd never dreamed were possible.
From the minute Junior lays eyes on Carlo, he knows he's in love. In order to prove his love, he's willing to make personal sacrifices that no one else has ever been willing to make for Carlo.
“Dirty Dancing is a timeless classic whose themes of doing the right things no matter who you love transcend gender, ”said Publisher Lori Perkins.
“I was excited to retell this tale with a gay twist,” said Author Ryan Field. “I hope the readers enjoy it as much as I did when I wrote it.”
