Lauren Dane Interview
Hello everyone! Book Monster Reviews and LITERAL ADDICTION are proud to welcome New York Times bestselling author, Lauren Dane to our sites today!
Today Lauren is a New York Times bestselling author of over forty novels and novellas across several genres. Though she no longer has to deal with Polly Pocket and getting those tiny outfits on and off, she still has trouble blocking out the sound of iCarly so she can write a love scene.
Lauren has a very impressive and extensive book list which can be found here: http://www.laurendane.com/books/. She has four series in Contemporary/Romance - DELICIOUS, CHASE BROTHERS, PETAL GEORGIA and BROWN SIBLINGS, three series in Paranormal Romance - DE LE VEGA CATS, CASCADIA WOLVES and her new series, BOUND BY MAGICK, one Sci Fi/Futuristic series - FEDERATIOIN CHRONICLES, including the mini-series PHANTOM CORPS and a numerous amount of stand alones in all of the genres above, including her Urban Fantasy eBook, "Goddess with a Blade".
Since we can't list all of Lauren's amazing books here, we're going to give you a peek at five of her 2011 releases, including "Heart of Darkness", the first book in the BOUND BY MAGICK series. Let's get started……

Q3): What are some of your hobbies or things that you enjoy doing when you’re not working, writing or taking care of other business?
Lauren: I love to read and cook. I love live music and dance performances as well. We do a lot of movie days in my family as well.
Q6): You have written in multiple genres of romance. Which is your most favorite genre to write in and which is your most challenging?
Q7): Do you have any interesting writing quirks? Maybe something you absolutely must have with you to get the writing process started?
Lauren: I don’t have a muse or anything like that. I sit down and write every day, even when I don’t want to (though I’m hoping to have an actual day off every week at some point within the next 12 months)
Book Monster Reviews/LITERAL ADDICTION: O.K, now we’ll ask some questions directly related to the BOUND BY MAGICK series and other projects… J
Q12): What other projects do you have in the works for the remainder of 2011 and for 2012?
Lauren: After Heart of Darkness in November, my release schedule is open until April, when BENEATH THE SKIN comes out (the next de La Vega Cats book), then May is CAPTIVATED (the last Phantom Corps book), June is CHAOS BURNING (BBM #2), August is SWAY in CHERISHED, a duology I’m in with Maya Banks (BDSM contemporary erotic romance), October is a digital only short featuring Ben, Todd and Erin from Laid Bare, November is TART, the second book in my new Delicious series (Sway is #1). Oh and in September Once and Again goes to print with some bonus material that’ll also be out as a digital release). That’s it for now, LOL.
Q14): Is there a question that you have always wanted to be asked in an interview but have never been asked? How would you answer that question?
