Today I am so pleased to welcome Perie Wolford to Joyfully Jay. Perie has come to talk to us about his new release, Jimmy’s Erotic Adventure In Time And Space Continuum (Episode 1). He has also brought along an exclusive excerpt. Please join me in giving Perie a big welcome!
Hi guys, this is Perie Wolford. Thank you for having me as a guest again!
Today I wanted to let you know about my new upcoming series JIMMY’S EROTIC ADVENTURE IN TIME AND SPACE CONTINUUM (EPISODE 1). The series will revolve around Jimmy the Time-Traveler and his escapades in time continuum, erotic escapades at times. Episode 1 – A SPECIAL KIND OF COWBOY – sets off the series, and begins with exploring the times of Wild West, where Jimmy is accidentally flung to.
Writing that episode, I tried to research time period specifics very carefully: the life styles people had, and clothes they wore, and foods they ate. I studied old photographs and maps to get the right feel of it. I read RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE. Setting one of my stories in this time period was always a dream of mine and I finally got to realize it with Jimmy. And I gave it a science fiction twist as well.
Aside from background scenery (which is mostly rocky Utah terrains, cactuses, brittlebushes, lopsided trees and etc.), the important thing for me was to tell an interesting story (isn’t it always?). I wanted to let the readers explore the lives of my characters, where they both come from, without giving too much away (because this is just the beginning of a long adventurous journey). I got attached to the two of them, Jimmy and Kit, more than I anticipated initially. I had such a blast with the two of them that I didn’t want to let go when the episode ended. By the way, the ending of this episode is one of my favorite parts. I don’t want to spoil anything, so you’ll see for yourself when you get to it. But I think it sets a perfect tone for the rest of the series.
The episode is illustrated. My illustrator is Bradley Tenchavez. I think he captured the essence of the story very well and put it in color. I, in my turn, polished all his images and designed the cover. I think this was a very fruitful collaboration. I hope you guys will enjoy the images as well.
Here is what Bradley had to say: “Working on this project really helped me develop multiple aspects of my art style and I really liked the collaboration between me and the author. The exchange of ideas helped push the potential of the art further and I’ve been happy with the results so far.”

When the two climbed the sandy side of a canyon, they proceeded alongside the rocky edge of it, red masses of stone holding tight in one place, thirty feet above the bottom of the canyon or so.
Jimmy rode the horse and Kit strolled in front of them, on foot. The stony surface under his feet was perfectly horizontal, but jagged to the extreme. Walking on it required constant attention. One wrongly taken step could make him stumble and bite the dust. He didn’t want that. So he kept mindful of each step, which tired his leg muscles.
Soon he was so exhausted, he suggested they have some rest. Jimmy didn’t mind, quite beat himself.
The two nestled by the trunk of another lopsided tree, its massive roots clinging to the ground at the top of the canyon, while half of its branches already hanging over the edge. Kit and Jimmy hid under leafy branches, not two feet away from the edge. The view here was stunning.
“Hungry?” Kit asked. Jimmy, who have settled comfortably on the rocks, leaning his back against the tree trunk, looked at Kit questioningly.
“We have food?” he asked, surprised.
Kit gave him a look. He rummaged through one of the saddlebags and whipped out two cans of beans and several chunks of the frying-pan bread.
“Oh, I forgot we had this,” Jimmy said, happy to remember. Kit snickered.
“What’d you do without me? Die of starvation?” he asked.
“Don’t get ideas,” Jimmy declared, taking a chunk of bread from Kit’s hands and biting into it, hungrily. He let Kit open a can of beans, for he didn’t know how. “I have the machine. It’s designed to keep me alive, you know. So I wouldn’t starve to death. I would have starved to near death, and then the machine would think of something.”
“There are 75 eatable plant types in the area,” the machine informed, matter-of-factly. “There are also plenty of eatable animal species.”
“Yeah, if only either of you could catch them,” Kit remarked. The machine kept silent. Jimmy did too.
Kit handed him an opened can of beans and sat down next to him, leaning his back against the tree, same way as Jimmy did.
Jimmy looked at the can quizzically.
“Okay–I’m not quite used to eating without the tableware,” he admitted.
“Well, you can dunk your bread in the juice and eat the rest of it with your hands,” he said and watched Jimmy’s reaction.
“My hands?” Jimmy asked, confused. “Do you have a sanitizer?”
Kit barely had an idea what a sanitizer might have been. He sighed.
Jimmy the time-traveler, while trying to solve a time-riddle his late father left for him, gets accidentally flung back in time, to the year 1871, the days of the Wild West, landing squarely in the middle of a valley of death. He stumbles into a pack of gun-toting rustlers, who capture him. To Jimmy’s luck though, the youngest of the rustlers, Kit Fisher, is not like the rest of his folks.
