2009 – What I'm Doing This Year

So this is a hugely busy year for me. The busiest yet! Release wise, this is what I’m up to:

wolf unbound

January 27 – Trade Paper Release of Cascadia Wolves: Wolf Unbound – this is book three in my Cascadia Wolves Pellini Storyline and it’s Tegan and Ben’s story.


March 31 – Trade Paper Release of Taking Care of Business – this is a contemporary erotic romance c-written with Megan Hart.

March 24 – Trade Paper Release of Cascadia Wolves: Standoff – the last in the Pellini story-arc and it’s Cade and Grace’s story. (I know it says April 28 but I’m hoping it’s a mistake. We’d moved it around a bit, Samhain kindly working around my other releases. I have everything marked as March 24 so I hope I’m right)

April – Digital Release of Always – a contemporary romance (I’m adding a page for this one this week!)

May 1 – Trade Paper Release of What Happens in Vegas…After Dark – the follow up to last year’s Spice anthology with a paranormal twist. My story is Sensual Magic featuring William Emery, Nash’s brother, and a witch bounty hunter named Nell.

May 8 – Trade Paper release of RELENTLESS – a futuristic erotic romance in the same world Undercover is set in.

August 4 – Trade Paper release of Laid Bare – a contemporary erotic romance from Heat (I’m adding a page for this one this week!)

September – UK Trade Paper release of No Reservations – contemporary erotic romance co-written with Megan Hart (I’m adding a page for this one this week!)

September 29 – Trade Paper release of Holiday Heat – a print anthology featuring my Sweet Charity and Jaci Burton’s Unraveled.

October – Digital Release of Trinity from Samhain – this features Jack Meyers who you met in the Cascadia Wolves books. It’s a paranormal erotic romance – MFM menage. (I’m adding a page for this one this week!)

November – US Trade Paper release of No Reservations – contemporary erotic romance co-written with Megan Hart

Whew, I’m so excited but sort of tired already!!!

    I don’t remember seeing the Relentless cover yet….how long has that been out?!

    Is there a blurb out for the novel yet? I really enjoyed Undercover and can’t wait for the sequel (even knowing that Brand, Sera, and Ash won’t be in it)

    😯 Yikes, you are indeed busy as heck! 😯

    did I mention that I’m dying to read Relentless? ’cause, you know, I am 😉

    Best of luck with each and every one of them, Lauren!

    @ Natasha – LOL, thanks!

    @ Joy – I hope you enjoy them!

    @ LC – it’s funny, it seems really far away and I look up and bam, it’s release day!

    @ Nancy – my first year I had two books out, and then I built on it. This is a lot though – not a pace you can keep up or that I’d even want to because not only is that a lot of back to back writing, it’s a lot of promotion (although some are digital to print so that’s a little different).

    @ Karin- thanks – here’s hopin so!

    @ Jackie – sure do! Just check the Relentless page here at the site (http://www.laurendane/com/relentless) or you can check it out at Amazon. I got the cover a few months back. I love it. It’s sort of like an old French erotic postcard, dreamy. And there’s a glimpse of Ash and Brandt but only Sera by way of reference. Nonetheless, I’m really excited to see what people think of it.

    @ Collette – LOL, I listed them all and was like, holy cats!

    @ Shelli – Well, truthfully, I didn’t mean to have so much in one year! It’s a lot. I’m grateful but I’d be happy with 3 or 4 releases, LOL!

    @ Azteclady – LOL, thank you!
