When did you first consider yourself a writer?

I’ll let you know when I finally do. Hahaha.

Ok, I’ll really answer. There are two points I can think of that made me believe I was a writer. The first one was in my twenties when I started going to community college. One of the classes I took was creative writing. I handed in my assignment and the teacher pulled me aside a few days later. She asked if she could include the short story in the handbook they were creating for the English second language department. They teach a grammar problem in the beginning of the chapter and then they put a short story at the back of the chapter and intentionally seed the story with the problem they are trying to get the student to identify. So, somewhere in my old alma mater, my story is showing people how to understand English better. And now that I answer this question I realize that if I told this story to my editor she’d ask if the grammar problem they used for my work was a split comma (apparently I have a real problem with those. Hahaha).

The second point I considered that I might actually be a real writer was when I finally wrote a novel I wasn’t embarrassed to have other people read.

Do you have a favorite movie?
Isn’t this one of my banking account login questions? What are you trying to pull here?

Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?
Of the stuff I have out now, I would have to say The Heart’s Bidding because it’s the only book I’ve published. I know, I know, quit with all the jokes. 

So I guess I could say, I have a young adult fantasy that should be available late next year. That would be a great movie. If the question was what one would make a good Netflix series it would be Anniversary Guy.

What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?
That’s funny, I just did a huge physical pilgrimage across the US. My mother was in Washington state and I had to go out and assist her with family business. I decided rather than fly I would drive the whole way, going a couple hundred miles per day and stop at all the tourist traps I could find. It really reset my stress back to zero (other than having to dodge people who couldn’t be bothered to wear masks in the middle of a pandemic). But as to a literary pilgrimage I don’t think I have (other than driving to Denver two years ago on a whim to my first ever national RWA conference).

As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar?
Well, the three dozen unicorn shirts in my closet would probably answer that.

The Heart's Bidding
by Jordan Riley Swan
Genre: Clean Contemporary Romance 

Kaylee Heart would rather run through a roaring fire than endure even a minute of public speaking. Put in an eighty-hour work week? No problem. Shut down her grandfather’s gold-digging girlfriend? Easy peasy. Stand in front of an auction crowd and call for bids? Show her the exit.

So she has no idea how Gerald, the golden-voiced auctioneer she’s been crushing on at the local auction house, can find the courage to stand on stage every week, with all those eyes on him. But as cruel fate would have it, she is about to find out.

Her family antique shop, the Vintage at Heart, has tripped over one financial hurdle too many and Kay is propelled, full speed, into her biggest phobia—the spotlight.

With terror chasing her, she’ll have to fight to keep the family business from closing forever. Even if the battle takes place in front of a live crowd.

**Only .99 cents until Sep 14th!!**

Jordan Riley Swan is a wild word hunter living in the far and dangerous reaches of rural Ohio. He spends his nights tracking down big-game stories, capturing them in paper cages, and training them to be better tales.

The Heart's Bidding was the first novel he'd dared to use the keys of his typewriter to release back into the wild.
