Would You Rather... with Lydia Laceby

Please welcome Lydia Laceby, author of Redesigning Rose

Lydia Laceby is the co-founder of Novel Escapes, a chick lit and contemporary women’s fiction review website. Since 2009, she has read and reviewed as much women’s fiction as humanly possible while designing, organizing and expanding the website from two reviewers to seven.

In her spare time, she knits cute baby hats, would pick cheese over chocolate–if she had to choose–and regularly cheats on her allergy free diet.

Lydia has always wanted to write and began her career writing a soap opera at the tender age of thirteen. It never aired. Redesigning Rose is her first novel.

Join Lydia on November 7th for BookBuzz Toronto where she will join nine other fabulous authors for bookish mix and mingle.

Would you Rather... with Lydia Laceby

Chips, chocolate or cheese? 

Cheese! Forever and always. Except moldy cheese. Cause that’s just wrong. 

Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood or Carrie Bradshaw? 

Bridget Jones all the way. She was my first chick lit love. And I’m not much of a shopping and shoes kind of girl, although I like Carrie and Becky well enough.

Wine, beer or vodka?

Vodka and soda. Preferably raspberry vodka. 

Camping or spa vacation?

Can I have a spa vacation at a reclusive cabin with plumbing? 

Water or mountains?

Water. I’m a Pisces. As soon as I approach a body of water I can feel my body physically relaxing.

Dogs or cats?

Dogs – I’m desperate to get another dog again. Hopefully one day soon. 

Zombies or vampires?

Zombies. I never would have thought it, but it’s true.

Coffee or tea?

Tea – unless it’s first thing in the morning when you’ll find me gulping coffee to wake up.

Dine out or take away?

This is a tough one. I’m normally pretty casual so the opportunity to get dressed up to go out is fun. But so is being lazy and curling up in front of the TV with cartons of prepared food. I’d have to say it depends on my mood.

High heels, sneakers and flip flops?

Flip Flops. Or anything flat. Heels and my feet do not get along. 

Physical Book or ebook?

Ebook. It didn’t take long to convert me 

Paperback or hardcover?

Paperback – Hardcovers hurt my wrists.

Pen or Pencil?

Pen – particularly purple ones for editing. Red makes it all too serious.

Drama or Comedy?

Dramedy. Give me something that makes me laugh and also tugs at my heartstrings and makes me cry and I’m a happy camper.  

Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick? 

Chapstick/Lipbalm. I use it endlessly! My addiction started in high school with the little pots of strawberry Body Shop lip balm. My friends and I were so addicted it became a thing and ended up in our graduation year book blurbs. “Lip balm anyone?” 

Twilight or Hunger Games?

Neither. Is that wrong?

Facebook or Twitter

I’m going to have to say Facebook because my none of my family is on Twitter.   

Plot your entire novel or fly by the seat of your pants? 

I fly by the seat of my pants – it means more work on the end side with editing, but I love it when my characters surprise me! 

Rose Parker’s husband has been lying. About everything.

When a conversation with her husband triggers questions, Rose Parker uncovers alarming answers that shatter her perfect life. But it is only when she shoves her belongings in her SUV and drives off that Rose realizes just how far from perfect her life actually was. She has nowhere to turn.

While debating between distressing sleeping arrangements–her mother’s house full of questions or a hotel room with too much solitude–Rose bumps into an acquaintance from her gardening class and allows bubbly, exuberant Becky to indulge her in a wild night full of whiskey, weeping, and whispered confidences. Suddenly, Rose has a new friend, a roof over her head, and two gorgeous men moving her out of her marital home.

As Rose struggles to settle into her new life, she remains determined to comprehend her past. And with time and distance and especially wine, comes knowledge. Frank wasn’t the only one lying to her. Rose was lying to herself.
