Last winter, I was moaning and groaning to Hubba about our daughter being in Hawaii when we were stuck in the cold. Well . . . my moaning and groaning paid off! For the last two weeks, we’ve been in beautiful Maui, enjoying the sunshine, surf, and sand. Here are some pics and a little information, just incase you ever find yourself in paradise.:o)
Right now, you can preorder the ebook version of Ring in the Holidays for just $4.99 or less at Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, and pretty much every place but Amazon. (So sorry for any inconvenience, but my books are still stuck in the war between Amazon and Hachette.) This price will only last until release day. So preorder now and on September 30th receive Matthew and Ellie’s holiday love story!
At the end of the summer, I always have regrets: I should’ve written more. I should’ve read more. I should’ve exercised more. And I really should’ve gone camping and enjoyed the great outdoors more. I always forget that I’m pretty much a city girl who runs screaming when a fly buzzes around her head because I’m convinced it’s a bee. I’ve been on numerous camping trips in my life–and I’m not talking luxury condos and cabins, but honest-to-goodness tent-pitching, fire-building, freeze-your-butt-off camping trips–and not one ended with me happily singing Kumbaya around a campfire. Here are a few Katie camping incidents: rolling down a mountain, almost catching myself on fire, falling in a creek, getting bitten by a mysterious bug and leg swelling, running into a bear, torrential rains with leaking tent, and burning the roof of my mouth with s’mores because I couldn’t wait to taste that gooey goodness. And still, all it takes is seeing a cute little camper on Pinterest for me to start daydreaming about going camping again. It’s a good thing Hubba knows me so well. This year when I brought it up, he turned the television channel to Naked and Afraid. After three episodes, I remembered why I don’t like camping. And since I have no pictures of my camping trip fiascos. Here are some pictures of cute little campers. And one for Roo:o)
I spent this last week in San Antonio for the Romance Writers of America conference. It’s a time for writers to hone their skills at workshops, network with publishers, agents, and publicists, and pretty much party down with their friends.:o)
Some of you might already be aware of how increasingly difficult it has become to order, pre-order, and receive promptly my (and other authors’) books from Amazon. This is due to a breakdown in negotiations between Amazon and my publisher Hachette Book Group. While I have no control over these negotiations, I do have control over my little corner of the world. (We won’t discuss how Roo races out the door every time I open it and makes me chase her down the street.) Right now, I am busy writing a new series that will be filled with all the love, laughter, and happily-ever-afters you’ve come to expect from a Katie Lane novel. For this opportunity, and all your support over the years, I am deeply grateful.:o)
And if you want to buy one of my paperbacks and don’t want to wait 4 to 6 weeks you can get them here:

This ebook box set includes full-length novels from SIX different authors–me included! All for just $3.99!! It’s a great deal and a great way to try new authors…and hot cowboys.:o)
