Blog Hop: My Worst Nightmare

Today is Vicki Leigh's "My Worst Nightmare" blog hop. Released on October 23rd by Curiosity Quills, Catch Me When I Fall is a YA paranormal romance that I'm very excited to read in the next couple days!

Participants are required to post about their worst nightmare, and what form the clawed, red-eyed creatures (from Catch Me When I Fall) would take if they fed off your fears. You are absolutely welcome to join in now -Follow this link to inlinkz to join up!

At the end of the blog tour, November 14th, Vicki will pick one participant at random, and award them with Catch Me When I Fall Swag Pack, containing a dreamcatcher hand-made by Vicki.

Here's my worst nightmare:

The red-eyed creatures would take the form of people telling me 'no' or getting angry with me. I'm not great with conflict, so being yelled at really makes me freeze up (fortunately not a common occurrence in my life!). But maybe even worse than that, I have a really hard time when people tell me no - when they tell me I can't do something or I shouldn't be doing something, or decline when I ask for something. And truly, I think I'm more afraid of the possibility of it, than that it's actually happened and been awful.  

So, there you have it, my brand of social anxiety manifested as a worst nightmare!  

Come back on the 13th of November when I host a spot on the Catch Me When I Fall blog tour - I'll have an excerpt and a review for you!

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 Vicki Leigh:

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.

  1. I personally don't have many problems with social anxiety, but if someone shouts at me or gets angry, it does throw me off... even when I'm not actually in the wrong. It makes my job really hard to deal with. So I can completely understand why that would be one of your worse nightmares.

  2. Reading your nightmare, I can really imagine the feeling when someone yells at me: how my neck and face get all hot and I can barely think, let alone respond. Good post.
