Anniversary Shenanigans: Author Visit: Amy Lane

AMY LANE IS HERE! AMY LANE IS HERE! I'm not sure she needs much more introduction than that because HOLY CRAP, Amy Lane is here! *squee*

BMBR: What are your favorite M/M themes? 
Amy: oooh… friends to lovers, rescue puppy rescues back, small towns, animals in peril-- I do tend to revisit a few ideas again and again.

BMBR: What books do you consider Desert Island Keepers? 
Amy: Hm… Tigana by Guy Gavriel Kay, anything in the A Matter of Time universe by Mary Calmes, the Whyborne and Griffin series by Jordan Hawk, the Magpie Lord by K.J. Charles, Holmes and Moriarity series by Josh Lanyon, the Dirty series by Rhys Ford-- the list goes on and on...

BMBR: What's your go-to tasty beverage? 
Amy: Well, it's been diet coke, but I've been developing a taste for upside down caramel machiattos when I'm traveling. I blame Mary Calmes. All her fault. 

BMBR: Do you have any secret talents? Inquiring minds want to know. 
Amy: Sadly enough, any talents I have are so few and far between that they are not secret. It's well known that I'm bi-craftual-- I knit and crochet. I have naming mojo--but sometimes it shorts out because of solar flares. And I can only cook something once because I can't remember what I threw in the pot. So, say, tonight, I am queen of curry fish soup. Next week, I will not remember how I made it, and I will be queen of mac and cheese with hot dogs. It's a crapshoot. It's why I love McDonalds-- consistency.

BMBR: If you had to choose to be one magical beast, what would it be and why? (you don't have to say unicorn...but we won't say neigh either) 
Amy: I want to be the Beast, of Beauty and the Beast. Because A. He gets to be grouchy and beloved, and I'm usually only grouchy and scorned. And B. Because the beasty parts melt away.

BMBR: Who's your favorite porn star? 
Amy: Dru from Corbin Fisher a few years ago. I haven't seen him since, but I could watch that guy rabbit-fuck other men into the mattress for hours.

BMBR: Do you have author envy? Whose words do you read and think, "GAH, I wish I wrote that!"? 
Amy: Did you not see my Desert Island Keeper list? All those words, my precious, and none of them mine. Waeeeeeeee? Waaaeeeeee did I not write A Charm of Magpies. Waeeeee, oh Waeeeee did I not write Whyborne and Griffin? Waaaaaeeeeeeee????

BMBR: Any new projects you're currently working on? 
Amy: Always. I am never not working on something. But I am excited about what I have coming out in December-- both The Bells of Times Square and Candy Man are holiday offerings, and my next Johnnies book is out in January. Also, I"m currently re-editing my Little Goddess series, and Dreamspinner Productions is re-releasing it next year. I'm so excited because it's urban fantasy, which was my first love, and it's pansexual elves and tortured vampires and a kick ass heroine and it was written way before Twilight came out, and even before True Blood hit cable. I'm truly happy it's getting new life.

Thanks for stopping by and chatting with us, Amy!


  1. I'll go to that Desert Island too, great choices!

  2. I agree with Suzi. It's like you picked from my bookshelf, except you would need to throw the Promises and Johnnies series in there. Thanks for the fun interview!

  3. Dreamspinner is SMART to do your Little Goddess series.
