Bloggers Blog Tour: Interview with Leesia Parriah Champion

We're very excited about being apart of this awesome tour organised by the amazing Tamara from http://theindieshop.blogspot.com/
I love getting know other bloggers, and today, we have a special treat. We not only have a stop with a blogger, but the blogger that we're interviewing also happens to be an author too! Let's meet Leesia Parriah Champion!


Hi Leesia, this is the first time I’ve paid a visit to your blog. I’ve a good nose around and have really enjoyed exploring your posts and getting to know you a little bit better. Thanks for taking the timeout to answer a few questions. Hopefully, our lovely followers will also be able to discover a little bit more about you and how awesome both you and your blog are!

Bex: How would you describe your blog? 
Leesia: I would have to describe my blog as a promotion spot for my books. I am new to blogging, so in my learning process, I have to admit that I am beginning to like the blog scene.

Bex: So you’re not just any ‘old’ blogger, I see you’re an author too. Cool! We love our authors on Bex ‘n’ Books. Perhaps you could tell us a little bit about yourself.  
Leesia: . I write paranormal books. I admittedly am a weird person, and love it. I am currently writing part 2 of Hidden In The Storm. It’s about vampires, witches, gods and goddesses.  I am also working on a couple of horror stories. My best friend is my husband. I have one son, who is the joy of my life. One more thing, haha! I am old fashioned. I still use the turn the handle can opener, and don’t have a lot of electronic appliances. It makes it a bit harder on us, but it also brings us together as a family, sharing the chores.

Bex: Your current blog ‘http://authorleesiachampion.blogspot.com.au/’ has been running since October 2012, why did you decide creating a blog was the way to go?
Leesia: Actually, this is a wee bit funny. The only reason, at first, that I decided to blog was I was trying to share a link from my publishing company’s site, and saw that I could share on a blogspot. I didn’t have a clue as to what I was doing. I accidently set up my blog account. Duh! I know right.

Bex: How do you organise the running of your blog. Do you religiously blog once a week, or post whenever the desire takes you? Why is this?
Leesia: My blog was plain Jane, thank you Ma’am, when I first started it. I cheated and had my good friend, Katie Shelby do all the decorating and adding buttons. Now that it has all the stuff for me to easily run it myself I try to keep it updated as often as possible. I work nights at an elementary school, and write in the mornings. I try to give myself about an hour on the internet per day. So I am guilty, I don’t get to blog as often as I would like.

Bex: If there is one thing that you learned since you started blogging that you wish you knew when you first started out – what would that be? And can you talk a little about some mistakes you might have made as a blogger so that others don’t make the same mistakes?
Leesia: I am going to answer both questions with one answer. LOL! If you have never blogged before, talk you friends into helping you. I was at a total and complete loss until Katie saved me. My bad! I am getting better, on the upside! I wouldn’t change a thing in how I went about doing my blog.

Bex: What are some of your favourite things to do outside of writing and blogging?
Leesia: This is an easy one. My horse is appropriately named, Writer’s Block. My husband and I go trail riding as often as we can. We like spending time together over a glass of wine. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. My favorite hang- out is at our local bookstore, Riverbank Books in Sparta, TN.

Bex: What are some blogs you recommend reading?
Leesia: First and foremost I would like to say a big thank you to, Frankie Rose  http://frankierosewrites.com/ , and Tamara  http://theindieshop.blogspot.com/ for organizing this awesome blog tour! Then check out~ http://nelycab.blogspot.com  and http://riverbank-books.blogspot.com/

Bex: Is there anything you would like to say to our followers?
Leesia: I would like to tell my followers that I love each and every one of you. I am always here for each one of you. I truly believe that you have to stay real no matter what. I always try to answer any messages or questions. It may take me a little while to get to it, but I do read each one. Also I want to say, thank you.

Thank you, now just enough time for a few randoms! J

Do you ever blog in your PJ’s? LOL! Yes, I do.

Sleep in or get up early? I completely detest getting up early. 8:00 a.m. is about as early as it gets for me. Although, it’s rare I sleep passed that time.

Pet peeves? I hate it when people touch me. I have Howie Mandel syndrome. Haha!

What did Santa bring you? A trip for myself and the hubby creature to Carolina Beach, North Carolina.

Cats or dogs? Dogs~ Little Bit and Pepper~ Blue Heelers, and Sarah~ peekapoo.

White wine or red? White.

Coffee or tea? Oh my, I have to have both. I get mean without my caffeine. Hehe!

Favorite food?  I would have to say, that I fell in love with the dishes from Guam, USA. Fried rice, tilapia, pork, chicken. Love them all.

Vanilla or chocolate ice cream? Vanilla

What is a movie or TV show that you watched recently and really enjoyed? Breaking Dawn Part 2.

Where can we STALK you?
Thank you so much for taking the time to do this interview with us and allowing us a glimpse into your blogging world.  Bex
