Blog Tour : Lainy Lane Euphoria Series & Interview

Today, we are joined by the lovely Lainy Lane, Author of  the Euphoria Series.

Lainy Lane is a 27-year-old mother of 2 beautiful girls, one of which is now the family guardian angel. She has a wonderful husband that is a large part of the reason she is where she is today. She has always had an obsession with fantasy worlds. When she was younger, she always said that Peter Pan would be the perfect man because when things got rough, he could whisk you away to Neverland, where all your problems would simply disappear. As she grew up, she learned the harsh reality that life can be cruel, and no world (even fantasy ones) is completely without issues and that was when her love for writing really grew. She has always written in some form or fashion, starting out with poetry and song lyrics. She’s always had a story in her head and voices talking to her. Thanks to lots of motivation from her husband, a wonderful laptop with a word processor, more hours than she could ever count, lots of sweat, blood, and tears, and a wonderful woman with an awesome little publishing company believing in her, she has finally managed to watch her dreams become a reality.

Life is a fragile thing, not only in the mortal sense. It’s like a big glass ball waiting above your head, and sometimes one simple thing can send the glass crashing down around you into a million tiny pieces. All you can do when this happens is stand by and watch as the pieces of your life fall, shatter, and settle around you. You have two choices: You can try and piece them back together one by one. Or you can start all over and try to build a new one. Hopefully a better one. Somewhere in between those two options is where you find the person you’re actually meant to be. The person that’s somehow strong enough to take destiny face on, no matter how impossible that may seem.
Calandra thought she lived a normal enough life. She fought constantly with her dad, like any other teenage girl. She had a boyfriend that she knew was it for her. School was coming to an end, and she was going to have all summer to spend with Tristan, while her father was out of town. it doesn't get much better than that. But when a stranger comes to her in a dream, life takes an unexpected turn. Calandra is thrown into a whirlwind where she discovers the heritage her father has been hiding from her for years, learns of a whole new world, and finds that destiny doesn't always hand you the life you dreamed of. Now, the question is- can she handle it all? Will she accept what she's meant to be?

In the first installment, Field of Innocence shows us that not all Faerie tales start with once upon a time or end with happily ever after. Sometimes Destiny is far too dark to give us a normal faerie tale!

What would you sacrifice for the life of your child? 
Hollyn is faced with this very question when she gives birth to Calandra alone in the woods at only 7 1/2 months. Hollyn suddenly finds her new daughter’s life hanging in the balance when Akiye, the faerie of the autumn equinox, offers her a lifeline in exchange for saving the life of her newborn daughter. Now Hollyn must leave everything behind, including Calandra, and return to Faerie to set things up to ensure her daughter can fulfill her destiny and fix the things in the world that her own family has been screwing up for generations now. 

Will Hollyn be able to ensure her daughter is the one to put a stop to the cycle, or will something else take all of her energy and use her up in the process?

 Destinies set into motion, wills are tested, and lives are changed forever in this prequel to the Euphoria series.

Lainy Lane Interview

Hi Lainy, welcome today, it is GREAT to have you here.

Can you tell us a little about yourself, where you’re from, who you are and what your hopes and aspirations are?

I am a mother of two little girls, one of which is now the family guardian angel. I am a stay at home mother, author, publisher, and student. I hope to inspire others to know that dreams do come true if you’re willing to work hard enough for them.

Describe your novels in no more than 500 words.

The Euphoria Series is a new kind of Faerie Tale. When the world of Faerie is thrown into turmoil due to an in-balance of human interaction that is caused by a love affair gone wrong, Faerie is left in need of something to repair the damage to their world before it spirals out of control completely. One innocent girl with a heritage that has been hidden from her just may be the answer they've been searching for… if she doesn't corrupt herself in the process and doom them all. 

While you were writing, did you ever feel as if you were one of the characters?

No, but there are times when I wished I could be one of my characters! 

What are your expectations for the book(s)?

I hope to see many readers be touched by it in the same way I’ve been touched by my favorite series. 

What are the morals of your stories?

There are many morals between my different stories. Field is a coming of age and finding yourself story

Have you ever hated something you wrote?

I have a love/hate relationship in my writing. I tend to hate my writing during the editing process, luckily I like it again before it releases! 

Your names are interesting, how did you come up with Calandra, Hollyn and Akiye – I find them very intriguing.

Calandra is actually a Greek name that I personally fell in love with but my husband wouldn’t let me use it for my own child, so I used it in my story instead. Hollyn was a spin off of Holly to give it a bit more of a unique feel. Akiye is a Japanese name that means Autumn Painting which seemed perfect for the Autumn Equinox Fae. 

What do you get from writing? Do you find it therapeutic?

I get a lot from writing, it is for sure my release. I love to be able to get all of my emotions out and transfer them into my writing. 

What books/authors have influenced your writing?

Too many to list quite honestly. I love Melissa Marr and her interpretations of the Fae world and she is a great inspiration to me, especially to this particular series. 

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?

I try not to allow myself to think about that. Once a book is completed, I have to let it go with what it is and I can’t let myself ever regret where my muse has led the story.

5 Fun Facts:

Lover or Fighter?


Tea or Coffee?

Tea – and LOTS of it, I have a serious tea addiction! 

Sex or Chocolate?


Twilight or True Blood?

Hmm… that’s kinda hard.

Night or Day?

Day for myself but my muse prefers night!
