Coffee drinker extraordinaire, author Lissa Matthews lives and writes in North Carolina. When not at the keyboard with blue collar bad boys, race car drivers, cowboys, shifters, or pretty much any other hero that tickles her fancy, she can be found reading in the backyard on her swing, in the kitchen trying a new recipe she found on Pinterest, watching sports and movies with her family, or perfecting her nap ninja skills.
Appearances for November 2019
Though Lissa won’t be making any appearances at book conferences this month, she will be showing up in the following places:
The Coffee Station… She makes use of this area multiple times a day. She found a new sugar-free coffee creamer and indulges whenever possible and since she works from home and she can see the coffee station from her office chair… Well, you get the picture.
Online… Lissa will show up unannounced and at random intervals on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook messenger, along with a few specific groups. She avoids Facebook proper as much as she possibly can (though it’s not 100% possible). To paraphrase Gollum, she hates it. She will also be found on KDP (Amazon’s site for uploading books), D2D (Draft to Digital) to set up books for release in the coming months under her alter ego name, and for herself.
Her Home Office… It’s coming along nicely. The walls are painted a color called Grayish with the trim in Snowbound. She finally got a new desk. It’s black and awesome. Along with a new chair. Black also. There are two tall white cabinets and one shorter black cabinet. She’ll be setting up her printer and figuring out where she wants to put the Victrola and where she wants to hang things on the walls, but she’s really loving the office changes so far. She’s got an awesome JBL speaker that sits in front of her monitor and she jams out. A lot.
The Kitchen… Lissa makes multiple, daily appearances in this room where she will make breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and many messes. You don’t really want to miss these moments. And try not to be alarmed at the love affair she seems to be having with her Crock-Pot Express Multi-Cooker.
Coffee Shops… Given that it is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo for those in the know…), Lissa will be seeking out places throughout the area for good coffee, decadent pastries, and ample writing space so she can get her words in because she does intend to kick NaNoWriMo’s ass this year!
Cat Feedings... Planned ones. 7:30am and 7:30pm, Sunday-Saturday. Also, giving diabetic cat his insulin shot. This is not something Lissa enjoys. The cat does not enjoy it, either. At all. Ever.
The Living Room… Lissa will be showing up in this room for afternoon naps, to work on crochet projects, to watch movies and sporting events on television, and to read. Now, November is the end of college football season proper, the end of the Nascar season, and nearing the end of the F1 season. Golf is happening around the world and NFL is still going strong.
The Downstairs Restroom… Again, do you really need an explanation?
The Upstairs Bedroom… Lissa will be making nightly appearances in this room for sleep. Do Not Disturb her. It won’t be pretty.
The VW… Lissa has a new car and is, well, having an affair with it, too. Apparently, she made need an intervention at some point. She loves driving it and so will be out and about throughout the month going to the grocery store (Publix, Aldi, Harris Teeter, Trader Joe’s), the bookstore (Barnes and Noble, Park Road Books), craft stores (Michaels, AC Moore, Hobby Lobby), the Library (to return books and check out more). On day trips and weekend trips into the mountains. She’ll likely be headed up to Black Mountain soon for some Christmas shopping. She’ll also be at the mall several times a week for walking (exercise) and to grab the Poke stops for all the Poke balls and experience points so she can hatch eggs, level up, Squirtle can find candy, and she can do battle in gyms. Yes, she’s 48 years old and she plays (casually) Pokemon Go! What of it? She also plays Wizard’s Unite.
Special Living Room Couch Appearances… As the holidays are upon us, Hallmark Christmas movies play 24/7 on Hallmark Channel. No further explanation needed. She also watches them on the television in her office, on her Kindle Fire, on her Chromebook, and on the Mac. And hey… don’t look at her like that!
