Starting From Somewhere, Book 4 in my Starting From series, is available on Amazon KU now! This novella is a bit of a departure in that it features one of the guys from “the other band”, Jealousy…and an adorkable nerd named Cody. The guitarist and the geek. Sigh…I love opposites attract stories! Bobby J is a bear of a dude with a big personality who loves to have fun. And Cody is the serious analyst who’d like a crash course in “all things cool”. Neither expects anything special, but then again…you never know unless you take a chance. And you have to start somewhere. This feel-good, lighthearted novella will be here just in time for the holidays!
Each book in the Starting From series can be read as a stand-alone, but you may want to check out the other books in the series, Starting From Zero, Starting From Scratch,and Starting From Here!

Blurb for Starting From Somewhere–
The guitarist and the geek…
What can I say? I’m a man of many tastes. I know what I like, and I’m not afraid to go for it. And I like the adorable geek from the bar. A lot. He’s smart and sassy…and he doesn’t seem to know or care that I’m in a hot up-and-coming band. However, I just found out he’s the new intern at Scratch Records. Uh-oh, this could get tricky.
Confession…I’ve flubbed my mission. My quest is to research cool things and interesting people before I start my job as aerospace analyst—not fall for a rock star. My internship won’t last long if I can’t control this infatuation. Bobby J might look like a bear, but he’s fun and sweet and…oh boy, I think I’m in over my head. But maybe that’s not such a bad thing. After all, you’ve got to start somewhere.
Starting From Somewhere is a MM, bisexual romance with some rock and roll and a little nerdiness! Each book in the Starting From series can be read as a stand-alone.

Better Than Beginnings, A Better Than Good Short Story Collection is here now! This collection of short stories follows Matt and Aaron from Better Than Good...after the story ends. The writer in me couldn’t let go of Matt and Aaron. If you’ve been following me for a while, you may remember a few weekly installments that I posted here on my blog over the years. They were snippets from their lives that highlighted anything from major life events to silly conversations while brushing their teeth or loading a dishwasher. LOL I’m thrilled to share this edited and expanded compilation of shorts following the boys through various holidays, Pride, birthday celebrations and yes…an engagement and a wedding. The romantic in me insists that the real love story begins after the first “I love you”.
**Now available at all ebook retailers! (Amazon, Kobo, iTunes, Barnes & Noble…)

Excellent story. I’m kind of slow on the uptake sometimes, so it took me a while to make the connection between you following me on Twitter and your novel. I’m such a lowbrow little monkey sometimes.
Thank you! That actually means a lot to me coming from you! I’ve read all of your books and loved them! (blushing as I write) A few of my friends’ kids are coxswains or rowers for our local aquatics center, so the settings alone made me smile.
So excited to hear this! 🙂
I Love both of your books and seriously can not wait for the next one. I’m also happy that Better than Good was released on Audiobook and hope that Jay’s story will be also. It would be do cool if Peter’s proposal to Jay was released as a short story. It’d be cool to see Jay’s reaction..:) Take care.
Thank you Melanie! Great idea for a short story. I’ve toying around with an idea for another in the Better Than series. It’s so hard to let them go. Better Than Friends will be out in June! Hope you enjoy! Lane xo
So excited for Better Than Friends in June and cannot wait for the pre-order link. Love Peter and Jay, but Aaron and Matty will always hold a special place in my heart. Love Aaron so much and any chance to hear about more of the four of the guys is a bonus I will buy and cherish.
Thank you Abby! Me too. I’m very excited for this release. All the boys are in it… so yes, lots of Matt and Aaron! Less than 2 months till launch… 🙂 Lane xo
Cannot wait love your writing. Do you have a release date? I am stalking dreampress waiting for pre-order so I can count the days. Best of luck on your current writing, I know it will be brilliant
I have a hunch it will be the 3rd week in June, but I still don’t have an exact date. I’ll keep you posted the moment it goes on pre-order! Thank you for your kind words. I can’t wait for you to read Better Than Friends! Lane xo
I woke up this morning to your blog update with the amazing news and immediately logged on to dreampress to pre-order. I love your books and cannot wait to read more about the boys. Counting the days
Yeah!! Thanks Abby. I can’t wait to hear what you think. I’m looking forward to this release. 🙂
Hi Lane. Just finished and I loved it as much as the other two. Is there going to be another book in the series? Thanks
Oh good! I’m so glad you enjoyed it! There will be more in the series but first…there’s a whole new one coming out in the fall. The new series will be set on the West Coast 😉 xo Lane
Thanks Lane. I will keep an eye out, I am in Australia so I will look for it on the spring!
Hopefully you won’t have to wait too long 🙂
Cannot wait to hear more about more in the series and your new book 🙂
Just finished reading Better than Friends, and it was all I was hoping for and more. You are an amazing story teller and can bring stories to life and make us fall in love and feel as though we know them. Love all six of the guys making it a treat to have Aaron and Matty play a big part in Jack and Curt’s story. Thank you and cannot wait for your next book as you are an automatic buy for me.
Thank you Abby! I’m so glad you enjoyed Curt & Jack’s story too 🙂 Look for a brand new series in the fall. Hopefully you’ll love the new guys just as much! xo Lane
Just finished Better Than Friends! I love your writing style. I’m already awaiting your next novel. 🙂
Thank you! The next book is the first in a new series. Look for it in Nov/Dec. 🙂
Hi Lane! I absolutely loved the first two books in this series and can’t wait to get to this one. I listen to them on audiobook since I have long commute to work. Do you have any idea when (or if) this will be available in that format?
Thank you so much! Better Than Friends should be available in audiobook format sometime in late October or early November. My amazing narrator, Tyler Stevens, told me he began working on it in August.:-) Thank you for your feedback! Can’t wait to hear what you think of the next one! Lane xo
Just brought and devoured all three books. Wow. When will there be more
Wow! Huge compliment! I’m working on the 3rd book in my next series now (book 1 will be out in early Dec) and then I’ll be working on #4 in the Better Than series. So glad you enjoyed them.:-) Look for The Right Words in December! Lane xo
Will The Right Words be available on audio?
I hope so! Since it hasn’t been out very long, I don’t know for sure. Fingers crossed! 🙂
I just finished The Right Words (on the same day I finally received the paperback from Dreamspinnerpress:) Loved it! I look forward to the next one in the series.
LOL! Awesome! I’m glad to hear you loved it! The Wrong Man will be available for pre-order beginning tomorrow, Jan. 9. It will be released Feb.6. Yeah!!! <3
Lane, thank you for your beautiful story The Wrong Man! I loved the story, the characters (every time Jakes’s physical appearance was described I drooled!), not to mention the wonder dog, Mack. And your “bedroom” scenes are off the charts sexy. I finished the book while recouping in the hospital so it was the PERFECT distraction! Looking forward to the 3rd in the series!
Thank you so much Kris! I’m thrilled you enjoyed their story…and glad to provide a “happy” distraction while you were in the hospital! Yikes! Hope you’re feeling better. Look for Alex’s story this summer 🙂
I can’t wait to read another story about Eric and Zane. I am in love with the Leaning Into Love short story, and I so excited for the book!
Thank you Deseree! I’ll probably release a free short here on my blog before the release of the first book in the new series. Be sure to check in for details in December/January. <3
Can’t wait for the leaning into love series
Thank you Shirley! It’s coming soon…March 15! 🙂
\Leaning Into the Fall is available now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iTunes and Scrib’d!\ What about Smashwords or Google Play ?
It is on Smashwords too (as of a few minutes ago). I’ll work on GooglePlay next. LOL
Thanks! Lane you are the best! 🙂
Do you have an ARC team or sign up sheets? If so I need to be on one cause waiting for your books to be released is torture! xx
Hi Mindy- Thank you so much for your inquiry. I’m actually just about to launch an ARC review team. I’m not sure if you’re a member of my FB group, Lane’s Lovers but the info regarding the ARC group will be posted there sometime this week. Please come by and check it out. Thanks! Lane xo
I absolutely will. Thanks so much for responding back. xx
Hi Lane, please give a new book on Google play 🙂
That could be arranged!
Hi there! I’d love to read the “A Way With” books but they don’t seem to be available in Canada. Any chance that will happen soon?
Unfortunately, A Way with You is a Kindle Worlds book and is only available in the US. Someone posted instructions on how to temporarily join US Amazon to make a purchase on my FB readers’ group, Lane’s Lovers. I’m also doing a giveaway for international readers today too so be sure to stop by. Thank you! Lane xo
I’ve just reread Better Than Good for what must be the tenth time, and was delighted to find the short-stories about everyone’s favorite couple; Aaron and Matt.
Thank you so much for them. All the other books are fantastic too, but I can’t say goodbye to Matt and Aaron – do you know if you might write any more about them? Maybe in the future… I’ll keep my fingers crossed. Thank you again, so very much x
Hello Joe – Thank you for your lovely message. Yes, I will be writing more Matt and Aaron. As soon as I finish my current WIP I plan to get started on another Matt and Aaron short. Look for it some time next month! Best wishes, Lane xo
Just finished reading a freebie, my first by you – Out In Spring. Great read in every way – characters, story, style and excellence in the mechanics of the language. Thank you for sharing it. Wish I was in a position to buy them all. You are very good.
Thank you so much for your lovely note. I’m so happy you enjoyed Out in Spring. You’ve made my day! Lane xo
Btw, the first book in the series, Out in the Deep, is available this weekend on Amazon for free! Check it out here… https://amzn.to/39WLCBn
Can Not WAIT for Out in the Spring!!!!
I love this series, and these guys, So Much!!!!
Thanks so much! Out in Spring is live now and Out on the Serve will be here next week! Woohoo! Lane xo
