Love Bytes is proud to exclusively reveal to you all the brand new cover to Tia Fielding her new upcoming release “One Step Forward”.
Sam Becker, a horse whisperer, agrees to take one last job before retiring to his Texas ranch. It’s clear as soon as he meets the Taylor family in Kentucky that he’s in for a challenge. What he doesn’t expect is the way his own wounds reopen. He never really dealt with the suicide of his mentally ill wife, and he won’t be able to ignore that hurt forever.
Joshua Taylor and his horse Calla were a force to be reckoned with on the eventing circuit until an accident ended their careers. Most of the pain is on the inside, however, and Sam knows those injuries are the slowest to mend. Sam’s unique methods help Calla and surprisingly, Josh, but he’s still lost without riding. Their feelings for each other come hard and fast, and Josh starts his first steps of recovery, but Sam is in Kentucky for a job and needs to return to Texas eventually. Even if Josh is able to move past the accident, they’ll still have a long and difficult journey to make before they can be together.
Tia Fielding is a thirtysomething Scandinavian who is a lover of witty people, words, cats, sarcasm, autumn, and the tiny beautiful things in life.
Tia struggles with stubborn muses and depression, but both are things she has learned to live with. After losing the thread of her writing in her teens, Tia rediscovered the joy of writing stories through fanfiction, which later kick-started her publishing career. Tia is not ashamed of her past of borrowing other people’s characters, but has found creating her own much more satisfying.
Tia identifies as genderqueer, but isn’t strict about pronouns. Why? Because luckily, in her native language there aren’t gender-specific pronouns.
Being a reclusive author living with her fur-babies is another fact of life for Tia, among the need to write that seems to be a part of her psyche by now.
In the fall of 2014, Tia took a huge leap for most authors and kicked her coffee habit. Do not fret, though, she switched to tea, so her life isn’t completely lacking caffeine.
In 2013 Tia’s one of Tia’s novels was recognized by the industry’s Rainbow Awards in the Best LGBT Erotic Romance (Bobby Michaels Award) category.
My name is Tia Fielding, and I’m here for my not-so-grand cover reveal for my story, One Step Forward. This is my first new novel in about three years, so please be gentle?
I’ve been published by Dreamspinner Press for about five years now, and in case you haven’t read any of my books yet, this one is a pretty good one to start from. I write everything from contemporary to BDSM and from shifters to vampires (so far in separate books though.) I tend to take a theme and twist it around so it looks like something very “me.” So far I think I’ve managed to do just that!
In any case, this turned out to be one of my favorite covers (of my own) and it was made by the wonderful AngstyG, who pretty much picked things right out of my head and turned that mess into something beautiful.
I hope you like the cover!
Tia is generously giving away two copies of One Step Forward.

Not that far from the farmyard, I was passing one of the barns when suddenly I was certain I had just heard something. Stopping, I listened for the sound again. My face broke into a smile. I’d know that sound anywhere. Then my face fell. What were they doing all the way out here? In the middle of the fields in a barn, with no other farms within a several miles’ radius?
Using my old-school phone as a makeshift flashlight, I made my way into the barn, cursing when I realized that my keychain with the tiny Maglite attached to it was on the kitchen counter in the guesthouse.
Every now and then there was a tiny noise, a little yap. After taking a few more steps, I found them under the stairs that led to the loft.
There were four puppies and a mom that looked sick.
Glancing at the phone in my hand, I tried to think about who I should call. The only one who would be awake would be Joshua, since he hardly slept.
Well… here goes nothing.
When I first arrived, Marie had given me a list of all the important numbers I might need, including the vet and the entire family. She had given me Joshua’s number too, just in case, but I hadn’t thought I’d need it with the way he was. For once I was glad to be wrong.
The ringing seemed to go on forever. Finally, he answered, his voice rough and surprised. “Yes?”
“Joshua, it’s Sam. Just listen, okay?” I spoke fast, not giving him time to answer. “I went for a walk along the road across the fields when I heard some noises coming from the first small barn on the left. Could you take a car and get here as fast as you can? And try to be as quiet as possible. Please?”
“Just come. Trust me on this,” I said and disconnected the call to take a better look at the dogs.
