June has been such a busy month! The kind of busy that has me longing for a margarita on chaise lounge at the beach. LOL. The birthdays, graduations and countless family gatherings jam-packed into a three week span were fun, but exhausting. Somehow in the middle of RL madness, I managed to squeeze in back-to-back releases. Yes, that’s right. Not one but two Lane Hayes books came out last week. A Way with Words and A Kind of Home. Woohoo!
A Way with Words is a short story (30k) I wrote for my dear friend, Felice Stevens’ Memories with the Breakfast Club launch for Kindle Worlds. This is Tony De Luca’s coming out story. Tony is a closeted construction worker from a close-knit large Italian family. He’s quiet and reserved and has a secret he’s kept his entire life. But the handsome guitarist playing on the street corner across from his jobsite turns him inside out and makes him dream of a life he never dared think was possible.A Kind of Home is Book 4 in my A Kind of Stories series. This one belongs to Spiral’s lead guitarist, Isaac and his best friend from high school’s brother, Adam, my most recent personal book crush. LOL. This is a friends to lovers story involving unexpected attraction, a creepy stalker and an MC who knows his way around a kitchen. And let’s be honest, baking can be very sexy indeed. 😉
Both books were set in NYC, which of course has me itching to get back to my favorite city. I’m hoping to make that happen this summer…fingers crossed!. How about y’all (I was just in Savannah, Georgia. Can you tell?)? Any fun summer plans? You can tell me about it in the giveaway below.
I’m going to giveaway two ebook copies of A Way with Words and one ebook copy of A Kind of Home. AWWW is temporarily only available in the US so I’d like to specifically offer a chance to an international reader and choose the other winners randomly from all locales. All you have to do to enter is tell me where you’re from and which ebook you’d prefer. So easy. I’ll choose my winners tomorrow morning.
Happy Pride, Happy Summer and as always, Happy Reading!
Lane Hayes xoLane Hayes is grateful to finally be doing what she loves best. Writing full-time! It’s no secret Lane loves a good romance novel. An avid reader from an early age, she has always been drawn to well-told love story with beautifully written characters. These days she prefers the leading roles to both be men. Lane discovered the M/M genre a few years ago and was instantly hooked. Her debut novel was a 2013 Rainbow Award finalist and subsequent books have received Honorable Mentions, and were winners in the 2016 Rainbow Awards. She loves red wine, chocolate and travel (in no particular order). Lane lives in Southern California with her amazing husband in an almost empty nest.
