Music plays a large part in my
writing. I always have an internal soundtrack going in my head and that was
certainly the case for A Way with Words.
Tony hums to a Bon Jovi classic playing at his job site and music greets him
when he pushes the door open to the bar where Remy works. And of course, Tony
meets Remy when he plays guitar in the park. The background is buzzing with
everything from flamenco to classic rock and roll. Here’s a short playlist to
give you an idea. Enjoy! 
Happy Reading & Listening,
Lane Hayes xo

Lane 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.

Uncommon Ground is unlike anything
I’ve written before. I’ve written science fiction, aliens, and contemporary
romance separately. This was my first attempt to put all those elements in the
same story. Why? Because I love both genres, read both genres, and wanted this
story to reflect that. I wanted people who don’t normally read science fiction
to give it a try, and I wanted my science fiction readers to fall in love with
Dillon and Lang.
The setting for Uncommon Ground was a bonus. I
was excited to write in Felice Stevens’ New York. I love her characters and
stories. My plot is fairly peripheral to hers, with her characters only
appearing here and there. The reason for that is, well, my guys are aliens.
(Some of them. Okay, most of them.) I didn’t want to infect her world too much.
But now that I’ve done it once, I can’t wait to do it again, and I will be
using one of her characters in a pivotal role in a follow up story. I haven’t
picked my victim yet…
Writing this story was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to continue
Dillon and Lang’s adventure, and expand the world I’ve started building inside
Felice Stevens’ world.
Bio and links:
If aliens ever do land on Earth, Kelly will not be prepared,
despite having read over a hundred stories of the apocalypse. Still, she will
pack her precious books into a box and carry them with her as she strives to
survive. It’s what bibliophiles do.
Kelly is the author of a number of novels, novellas and short
stories, including the 
Chaos
Station
 series, co-written with Jenn Burke. A lot of what she
writes is speculative in nature, but sometimes it’s just about a guy losing his
socks and/or burning dinner. Because life isn’t all conquering aliens and mountain
peaks. Sometimes finding a happy ever after is all the adventure we need.

“I hadn’t decided to write a
story for the launch of the Kindle world but i got caught up in the excitement
of the other authors’ stories. I’d asked my reader group who they’d most like
to read a  new story about and the consensus was Nick and Julian. I love
second chance stories and those two always held a special place in my heart.
A few of us were at RT
this year in Atlanta, sitting at the bar (as usual) when an idea popped into my
head. We always read books about the couples coming together, but what happens
after the happy ending? And I knew there was lots more to Nick and Julian’s
story. A title came to me-Controlled Burn-which I didn’t end up using, but the
premise of the story, Nick and Julian struggling through that first year with
themselves and each other, was all there. I didn’t want it to be too angsty,
and wanted to show a little bit of fun in the bedroom.
Just a note. I started
writing notes on my phone and Lane Hayes, who was sitting next to me when the
idea hit, knew exactly what was happening. 
“Got a
storyline?” she said to me.
“Yep.”
I got typing away as
we finished our margaritas.”
