A day in the life of Lisa SwallowPosted: February 12, 2014
Today’s guest post is part of the From Australia With Love blog tour, and is by urban fantasy and romance author, Lisa Swallow! Lisa sent me this post ages ago and due to internet woes and my general inability to find my way out of a wet paper bag, I have failed to post it till now. I’M SORRY AGAIN, LISA! (On the bright side, it’s a day in her life from several weeks ago–it’s practically like travelling in a TARDIS. Right? Right?)
There’s also a giveaway as part of the tour, which you can enter HERE!
Today is: Monday
I woke up at: Eight am
What I ate for breakfast: Yoghurt.
Most interesting thing I did today: Organised a cover for my new book!
Least interesting thing I did today: Grocery shopping
No one knows…: I wrote part of Soul Ties without realising there was a bush fire nearby. I didn’t realise how close it was getting until I was told to evacuate. I thought I could smell burning!
My pets are: Tilly, the Weimaraner who never barks, and Twinkle, the cat who thinks she has a magic never-emptying food bowl, thanks to my daughter.
When I’m bored, I tend to: Wonder how I found time to get bored.
For lunch, I had: Tuna salad
My current mood is: Tired but happy
I worked on/for: Summer Sky (Blue Phoenix #1), my new contemporary romance.
My biggest pet peeve is: Lost apostrophes! I have opened a Home for Lost Apostrophes. I rescue them from apple’s and sometimes boy’s.
When I drive, people think: Why has that woman got a family of zombie stickers on her back windscreen?
I get easily distracted by: The internet. I have to disconnect from our wifi when I’m writing.
Dinner was: Vegetable curry and rice
My favourite movie so far this year: Catching Fire
In my spare time, I like to: Read!!
When I need to get into the writing mood, and I’m struggling to, I: Start cleaning. Funny how the need to write suddenly appears then…
I decided to be an author because: The voices wouldn’t stop 🙂
Lisa is an author of new adult romance and writes both paranormal and contemporary, often with a side of snark. In between running a business, looking after her family and writing, Lisa sometimes finds spare time to do other things. This often involves swapping her book worlds for gaming worlds. She even leaves the house occasionally. Lisa is originally from the UK but moved to Australia in 2001 and now lives in Perth in Western Australia with her husband, three children and dog.
Her latest release is Finding Evan, the sequel to new adult contemporary romance Because of Lucy. Fated Souls, the prequel to the urban fantasy series Soul Ties, is due for release soon. She is currently working on Summer Sky, a contemporary romance.
