About Catch Me When I Fall:
Recruited at his death to be a Protector of the Night, seventeen-year-old Daniel Graham has spent two-hundred years fighting Nightmares and guarding humans from the clawed, red-eyed creatures that feed off people’s fears. Each night, he risks his eternal life, having given up his chance at an afterlife when he chose to become a Protector. That doesn’t stop a burnt-out Daniel from risking daring maneuvers during each battle. He’s become one of the best, but he wants nothing more than to stop.
Then he’s given an assignment to watch over sixteen-year-old Kayla Bartlett, a clinically depressed patient in a psychiatric ward. Nightmares love a human with a tortured past. Yet, when they take a deep interest in her, appearing in unprecedented numbers, the job becomes more dangerous than any Daniel’s ever experienced. He fights ruthlessly to keep the Nightmares from overwhelming his team and Kayla. Soon, Daniel finds himself watching over Kayla during the day, drawn to why she’s different, and what it is about her that attracts the Nightmares. And him.
A vicious attack on Kayla forces Daniel to break the first Law and reveal his identity. Driven by his growing feelings for her, he whisks her away to Rome where others like him can keep her safe. Under their roof, the Protectors discover what Kayla is and why someone who can manipulate Nightmares has her in his sights. But before they can make a move, the Protectors are betrayed and Kayla is kidnapped. Daniel will stop at nothing to save her. Even if it means giving up his immortality.

About The Author:
Adopted at three-days-old by a construction worker and a stay-at-home mom, Vicki Leigh grew up in a small suburb of Akron, Ohio where she learned to read by the age of four and considered being sent to her room for punishment as an opportunity to dive into another book. By the sixth grade, Vicki penned her first, full-length screenplay. If she couldn’t be a writer, Vicki would be a Hunter (think Dean and Sam Winchester) or a Jedi. Her favorite place on earth is Hogwarts (she refuses to believe it doesn’t exist), and her favorite dreams include solving cases alongside Sherlock Holmes.
Vicki is an editor for Month9Books and Curiosity Quills Press, an intern at TriadaUS Literary agency, and is represented by Sarah Negovetich of Corvisiero Literary Agency.

Interview! Now to the fun questions.
- How does it feel to be a published author?
Vicki: Kind of surreal, actually. Over the last year, I knew it was going to be a reality, but now that it’s happened, I’m sort of awestruck. Like it hasn’t quite set in yet that my book will share the shelves with my favorite authors. It’s a very strange feeling.
- Since Catch me when I fall deals with dreams and nightmares, what’s the craziest dream you ever had?
Vicki: Oh, man. I know just the one. Recently, my best friend had a baby, and I got to hold her when she was just a day old. So adorable! Anyway… a few days later, I dreamt that while I was babysitting her daughter, the world ended. She and I went on the run, and we ended up in this village where I was “the One.” (You know how that goes.) So, I was getting ready to speak to the villagers, but the baby needed her diaper changed. As I was changing her diaper, she opened her mouth and spoke, in a man’s voice, “RUN.” I woke up laughing.
- Quick, the a meteor is on a collision course with earth, what two things do you grab to take with you to the underground shelter near your town?
Vicki: My laptop and my cell phone. Because I’m stupid and don’t realize that we’ll probably be without internet or electricity.
- What two book boyfriends are you favorite?
Vicki: Well, that’s easy! My #1 book boyfriend of all time is Adrian Ivashkov from Richelle Mead’s Bloodlines series. *stares dreamily into space* Mmmm. He’s so swoon-worthy. And my #2 book boyfriend is Will Herondale from Cassandra Clare’s Infernal Devices trilogy. I have a thing for guys with dark hair and snarky attitudes. J
- Tell us something crazy.
Vicki: Uhhh… I’m a writer and I loathe coffee—even the smell of it? Does that work?
Today, I’m taking part in Vicki Leigh’s “My Worst Nightmare” blog hop, to celebrate the recent release of her young-adult, paranormal-romance/ urban-fantasy, CATCH ME WHEN I FALL, which centers around seventeen-year-old Daniel Graham, a Protector of the Night, who has spent two-hundred years fighting Nightmares and guarding humans from the clawed, red-eyed creatures that feed off people’s fears.
My worst Nightmare is actually this shadow being with red eyes chasing me in a mall. No one can see him and no one will help me. The dream ends with the thing wrapping clawed hands around my neck. Ugh. so scary!
- On 11-03-14 post about your worst nightmare, and what form the clawed, red-eyed creatures would take if they fed off your fears.
- Visit the other participants of the blog hop, and comment on their worst nightmares
At the end of the blog tour, on 11.14.14, Vicki Leigh will pick one of the participants at random and award them with [prize].
