Tara Lain Signs New Three-Book Contract with
Dreamspinner Press for LOVE IN LAGUNA Series
Publication Dates for the contemporary gay romances set for 2015 and 2016
Laguna Beach, CA., June 10, 2014 — Known for her romance novels set in Laguna Beach, a small, seaside town of artists and surfers in the middle of the huge southern California megaplex, author Tara Lain today announced the signing of a three-book contract with Dreamspinner Press for a new series entitled Love in Laguna. The individual book titles are Knight of Ocean Avenue, Prince of the Playhouse and Knave of Broken Hearts. The contract was negotiated by Tara’s agent, Saritza Hernandez of the Corvisiero Literary Agency, New York.
“These books are very close to my heart,” said Lain, who is best known for writing MM romance which is growing rapidly in mainstream popularity. “Each of them is wholly or partly set in my favorite town and concerns real issues of ‘coming out’ or even realizing true sexual orientation in a man’s twenties or thirties versus his teens. Like all my books, they’re very romantic and concern couples who often have strong differences — and strong attraction.”
Among Lain’s most popular works are her Balls to the Wall series all of which take place in Laguna Beach. Most of the books in this series — Volley Balls, Fire Balls, Beach Balls, Snow Balls, and F.A.S.T. Balls — have appeared on the Amazon list of 100 top-selling gay romances in their publication years.
Lain is also known for her recently introduced paranormal series with Dreamspinner Press. Tales of the Harker Pack, the first two books of which — The Pack or the Panther and Wolf in Gucci Loafers — have been Amazon bestsellers and have reached number one at All Romance eBooks.
“I’m very happy to be working with Dreamspinner on this new series. We’re two books into my recently signed contract for the Long Pass Chronicles, and I’m enjoying their editing and publishing process so much. Love in Laguna couldn’t have a better home.”
The first book in the new series, Knight of Ocean Avenue, will be introduced shortly before the Romantic Times Conference in May 2015. Prince of the Playhouse will follow in the fall of 2015 and Knave of Broken Hearts in 2016.
