Today's interview is with Kasey Lane, and do not miss the giveaway at the end.
1. Tell me about yourself.
I live in rural Southern Oregon with my husband and two kids. We share property with my parents on the Applegate River. I’m originally from more urban California. I’m an old school entrepreneur and handle the marketing for a manufacturing company that I helped found. I still have a bit of a punk rock heart and I think that kind of shows up in my writing.
2 And your new book?
My new book, Beautiful Crazy, is an opposites attract story about two competing music marketing consultants that are going after the same band. They have to win the contract for different reasons. They also have to TRY and ignore their over the top chemistry. I love stories about opposites…probably because I feel like it’s a little bit like my own love story with my husband.
3. Since this is a music book, tell me about your taste in music.
My friends would probably tell you I'm music snob, but I think my taste in music is eclectic. Right now I’m really into electroswing, but I love everything from old school Metallica to classic Elvis to some EDM like Parov Stellar and Flume. I grew up in the late 80s in the SF Bay Area. I was lucky enough to see a lot of awesome punk rock and new wave bands locally. And now my husband and our friends still go shows…sometimes with our kids and sometimes without. Just this year we've seen Getter several times (he's my good friend's son), Hunter Hayes, Diana Ross, Kaycee Musgraves, Pat Benatar, Hollywood Vampires, Purity Ring, and a bunch of local bands.
4. Tell us more about the hero .
Mason is very alpha and pretty much used to an easy life where everything just sort of goes his way. We meet him when he’s a pretty big hitch in his career (which is pretty much his life) and is reeling a bit. Then Kevan comes into the picture and just completely rocks his world. It was fun to to bring the big bad handsome man to knees a little. Well, as much as I could with such a strong willed character.
5 And the heroine?
Kevan seems like she’s all pretty face and pinup style, but there’s a lot going on under her perfect makeup. She’s very clever and the stakes are pretty high for her to get what she wants. She’s also a bit more damaged and really mistrusts Mason from the get go. I really love her character, her kindness wrapped up in this quirky shell.
6. What are you working on right now?
Right now I'm finishing up book 3 in the Rock 'n' Ink series, Beautiful Wreck. It's Bowen's (the heroine of Beautiful Crazy's brother) story.

“You confound me. You’re all these maddening contradictions that don’t make any sense… And I can’t get enough of your special brand of beautiful crazy.”
She’s a rocker with attitude and ink…
He’s a sexy suit who gets what he wants
Kevan Landry is trying to keep her life on track and her brother in rehab. If her fledgling marketing firm can sign the hot new band, Manix Curse, it will make a world of difference. Mason Dillon heads the most successful music PR firm in Portland. He’s desperate to breathe new life into the company by signing Manix Curse.
The last thing either one needs is a one-night stand with a smoldering stranger…
The stakes are high when a battle for the band—in the bedroom and the boardroom—becomes a battle of the heart. But if these two can set aside their differences, they may find they’re the right mix of sexy savvy to conquer both their worlds.
