Bad Behavior Release Date March 8th!

Hey Book Buddies,

I'm back from New Zealand, which was as beautiful as expected. I wasn't in Christchurch during the earthquake but I was in the south island touring Dunedin, Wanaka, Queenstown, and Milford Sound. I'll post about the trip later in the week once I get settled.

I returned home to wonderful news: Bad Behavior, the sequel to With Good Behavior, will be released on March 8th! This time the cuffs are coming off.

Grant Madsen’s got issues. He’s still battling his Mafia family and doing everything possible to keep his loved ones safe. With the cruising season coming to an end, he has to find another job soon or he’ll rejoin his father in prison. And he’s trying to convince his rebellious teenage nephew to stay away from their criminal relatives (you can imagine how that’s going). But worst of all, Grant’s parole officer has mandated that he attend therapy.

The only saving grace is that they’re couples sessions with his girlfriend, Sophie Taylor, a fellow parolee wh…

Vacation, Baby!

Fare thee well suckers, I'm off to New Zealand for vacation! Yee-haaaahhhhh

I'll be visiting my college roommate/swimming teammate, who's a physician there. I'll be blogless and internetless for over a week *feels withdrawal shakes coming* so I'll catch up with you when I return.

Did you know there are more sheep than people in New Zealand? It's true!

One of the places we'll visit is Milford Sound which looks like this:
Wow, I can't wait. When I return to the states I'll have some more information about the upcoming release date of Bad Behavior, the second book in The Conduct Series.

Interview with Author Carol Oates

It's my pleasure today to interview Carol Oates, author of Shades of Atlantis! See my review here.

Jennifer Lane (JL): You live in Dublin but Shades of Atlantis takes place in Maine for the first half of the story. What made you choose Maine as the initial setting?

Carol Oates (CO): Ireland may be the land of saints and scholars but I've found it very difficult to fit in with the publishing industry here. The type of paranormal romance I write is available in Ireland but generally it is by authors from outside Ireland. This is even more apparent with Young Adult.

When I started writing Shades of Atlantis I knew I was writing it to submit outside Ireland and I wanted to include locations outside Ireland. There are specific reasons for every location in the book. There is rarely anything random in anything I write. Camden, Maine is south of a town called Belfast. Dublin, Ireland is another location and my home town. Dublin is also south of Belfast. Part of the story takes place …

Guest Blogger: Angelina Rain

Today I'm excited to host fellow author and bloggerAngelina Rain.

She has a sultry short story "The Problem With Love Spells" coming out in the anthology Indecent Encounters in two short days, 2-9-11! Angelina also has a contemporary romance under contract.

Here's what Angelina has to say about the windy road to publication:

You Sold a Book. Now What?

You’ve worked over it, stressed over it, probably even found a few grey hairs because of it. So what is this “it”? The book you worked so hard to write, edit, and submit. And what do you get for all that hard work? A “Thanks, but no thanks,” letter. It’s devastating, heart crushing, and it makes you wonder will you ever get there.

I’ve been very lucky as I haven’t had to deal with rejection upon rejection. My very first two submissions led to contracts. Here, I will be talking about my short story “The Problem with Love Spells” which is included in the “Indecent Encounters” ménage anthology.

When I opened “The Call” e-…

Lookin' for Love Webhunt

Dear readers,

Omnific Publishing has some fun events going on to celebrate Valentine's Day and their one year anniversary.


The Lookin' for Love Web Hunt is going on until February 14th. Visit the author sites listed, find the secret message on a heart hidden somewhere on their sites, and enter to win the entire collection of Omnific e-books!

Astute reader Squally informed me my heart message was difficult to find due to some pictures on my site not loading, so I've moved it to another page on this site and hopefully it will be easier to find. If you can't find it, email me by clicking on the "M" at the right of the page and I'll give you a hint! The message is something Grant and Sophie would say to each other in Bad Behavior, the sequel to With Good Behavior which will be released in March 2011.

Omnific Publishing is having an Anniversary Sale. Buy one print book, get one free!


I'll also be participating in a Follower Love Giveaway Hop February 8-13 s…
