Prism Book Alliance® would like to thank Lauren Gallagher for stopping by today.
Title: Stuck Landing (Bluewater Bay #11)
Author: Lauren Gallagher
Cover Artist: L.C. Chase
Genre: Bisexual, Contemporary, Fiction, Lesbian, Lesbian Romance
For months, acclaimed Wolf’s Landing director/producer Anna Maxwell has been nursing a crush on Natalya Izmaylova, a former Russian gymnast and current Wolf’s Landing stunt coordinator. When Anna witnesses Natalya’s very public breakup with her boyfriend, she can’t resist inviting her over for drinks to commiserate about love and all that nonsense. Commiseration doesn’t last long, and soon Anna’s in bed with the hottest woman she’s ever touched, living out fantasies she didn’t even know she had.
Despite the amazing sex, Anna wants to proceed with caution. They’re both newly single. They’re colleagues. And there’s the not-so-small matter of Anna’s biphobia.
Natalya won’t commit to someone who clings to ridiculous stereotypes, but they can’t avoid each other at work, and there’s no ignoring their chemistry. Anna’s defenses are slowly eroding, and Natalya is willing to give her another chance. But Natalya only has so much patience, and even scorching-hot sex won’t keep her coming back forever. If Anna doesn’t come to her senses soon and let go of her prejudices—not to mention her insecurities—she’s going to lose the woman of her dreams.
Writing Across The Spectrum
Two weeks ago, on November 30th, I celebrated 6 years as a published gay romance author. Back then, as I divided my time between hetero and gay male romances, I didn’t see myself writing anything else.
How times have changed. Stuck Landing is my second lesbian novel. My third bisexual ménage comes out in February. I’ve published two transgender novels (and am working on a sequel to one of them). As of very recently, I’ve finished my first asexual romance, All The Wrong Places, which will join Stuck Landing in the Bluewater Bay series in mid-2016.
When I started out writing gay romance, I never imagined myself writing LGBT romance. At the time, I knew next to nothing about non-binary gender identities. I’m pretty sure I’d never even heard of asexuality. But… here we are.
A lot of people ask me what it’s like to write different pairings/combinations. How is gay different from hetero? How is lesbian different from gay?
And the more I write different orientations, the less different they seem. Of course there are the obvious differences (particularly where sex scenes are concerned), but it really comes down to writing people. People doing smart things and dumb things. People being rational and impulsive. People falling in love and torpedoing love and finding some way to fix that love.
Six years ago, I saw myself writing hetero and gay romances and calling it a day.
Today, I just want to write about people falling in love.

About the Author
Lauren Gallagher is an abnormal romance writer who has recently been exiled from the glittering utopia of Omaha, Nebraska, to an undisclosed location in South America. Along with her husband, a harem of concubines, and a phosphorescent porcupine, she remains, as always, in hiding from the Polynesian Mafia. For the moment, she seems to have eluded her nemesis, M/M romance author L.A. Witt, but figures L.A. will eventually become bored with the wilds of Spain and come looking for her. And when that time comes, Lauren will be ready. Assuming L.A. doesn’t have her hands full keeping track of Lori A. Witt and Ann Gallagher, which she probably will.
I have a number of paperbacks, most of which are signed, to giveaway. Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
Thank you so much for your support over the last 4 years. Prism will be closing its doors on 1 April 2017. All content will remain available, but no new content will appear after 31 Mar 2017. As such all request forms have been turned off. Again Thank you,
