AUSSIE MONTH with Lisa Swallow
Describe yourself in one word:
Tell us about inspired Cadence:
This novel was originally a serial sent to my newsletter subscribers. The hero, Jax, is a minor character in my Blue Phoenix rock romance series. The subscribers encouraged me to turn the serial into a book and Cadence is now the first in a new series.
What are you reading right now?
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I’ve just finished watching the TV series.
Number one thing to do on your bucket list?
Renew my vows in Vegas – and I’m doing it in June!
Best thing about being an Aussie?
That I am accepted as one! (I’m dual national British/Aussie) And the lack of cold winters is a bonus too.
What you want readers to know about the romance genre?
Thanks to self-publishing, I think there is always something fresh being produced, and an amazing range to choose from. These days more than ever, it’s impossible to say ‘romance is a formula’.
What have you got in store for your readers in 2016?
On 28th January, Shuffle (Ruby Riot #2) is released. I’ll also be releasing the third book in the Ruby Riot series, the last Blue Phoenix book, and I’m involved in a paranormal romance series ‘world-building project’ with a number of other authors later in the year.
What were your big achievements of 2015?
I began to make enough income to become a full-time author which is a dream come true for me and never something I expected to happen. Cadence reached top 500 on Amazon US which was a big moment for me and an anthology I was part of reached top 100.
Cadence (Ruby Riot #1)
Tegan Hughes joins Blue Phoenix and Ruby Riot on tour, and drummer Bryn isn’t the only one who notices his little sister isn’t a kid anymore
Jax Lewis is the guitarist for Ruby Riot and the band are rising to success. He’s hot property and loving every minute of his new found fame. Now, he’s on tour supporting Blue Phoenix and living his rock star life to the full. Until Tegan walks into his world and puts the brakes on.
Tegan Hughes is taking a year out and has her sights set on touring Europe with her big brother’s band. Blue Phoenix drummer, Bryn isn’t happy when his sister arrives unannounced at his hotel in Lisbon, but Tegan isn’t the type of person to take no as an answer.
With her big brother breathing down their necks, Jax and Tegan attempt to keep a handle on their growing attraction but that proves harder than they thought. Jax is used to getting whoever and whatever he wants and after kissing Tegan once, he knows one thing…he wants more.
The problem is, Tegan isn’t rock star girlfriend material. She has ambitions of her own and refuses to let anything stand in the way of her plans. But when Jax and Tegan’s relationship becomes public knowledge life becomes a hell of a lot more complicated.
