Welcome to The Wormhole and my day on the tour.
It my pleasure to share this interview with Lucy Swing!
 When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
When I read the Twilight saga. I was OBSESSED. I had spent the years leading to Twilight busy and barely ever reading, when I got my first copy, once they had all been published, I could not put it down. The way Meyers made me feel, as if I were the heroine, and how in love I was with all the characters… I wanted to make someone feel that same way. I have always liked to write. I have numerous lyrics (from when I wanted to be a singer), scripts (from when I wanted to be an actor and/or director) and a million stories started that never got an end. So thank you Stephenie Meyer, I am now doing something I absolutely love.

 How many jobs did you have before you became a writer?

 How long does it take you to write a book?
Feathermore took me about two months to finish, and another two to revise, edit, etc. Bloody Valentine, a novella, took me about two to three weeks.

 What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?
I don’t know if it is interesting… to me it’s rather annoying, but I cannot write until I have cleaned the house. I need my space to be tidy before I can really give myself to the story.

 Where do you get your ideas or inspiration for your characters?
Most of the times they will resemble something I wish I could be/do. A world I would like to live in, or a love story I would have once enjoyed being a part of.

 What books have most influenced your life?
As I explained earlier, Twilight has been the one to bring me to where I am today.

 What are you reading right now?
I just started (3/6/2012) “Embrace” by Jessica Shirvington, once I am done will start “Unearthly” by Cynthia Hand.

 What do you like to do when you are not writing?
Spend time with my family. My inspiration comes at odd times, so whenever I have some down time I enjoy spending the time with my kids.

 What do you think makes a good story?
A good story MUST have characters one can relate to, or at least care about. Without that, readers won’t care about the story itself.

 Who would you consider your favorite author and why?
I can’t say I have one favorite author. Every author is unique in their own way and I love different things about them all. Some of my favorites are Alyson Noel, Kira Saito, Hope Collier, P.C. & Kristin Cast, Jessica Verday.

Quickie mini review - on page 127 -
The writing is fantastic.  The ideas are original and clever.  The story virtually flows from the pages, it is nicely paced.  The characters are wonderful.  I can't wait to learn more about Blake and his connection.  Lilith is terrifying.  I am so excited to see where is story goes that I can't hardly put it down.  DO NOT miss out on the opportunity to read this.  (Final review will post later today).  Happy reading.
