Author Interview - Carly Fall



Today we have a special guest from GoddessFish Tours! Welcome Carly Fall and learn more about her new release, Finding My Faith and the giveaway she's doing!


What's your book/current WIP about?
Finding My Faith is the second book in the Six Savior Series focusing on the warrior Rayner. Over two hundred years ago, a group of vicious criminals escaped from their prison on the planet of SR44. They landed on Earth, and have become some of our worst criminals such as Jack the Ripper and Jeffrey Dahmer. The people of SR44 sent six warriors to destroy those criminals.

Rayner is the all work and no play guy who desperately wants to go home, but knows that won't be possible until their mission is complete. He also has a gift that he feels is a curse: he can see spirits caught in the ether between life and death. There's very little he can do for them, so he ignores them. Faith is a human who gets mixed up with one of the criminals, and almost dies. Rayner can see her, and when he realizes that she may be able to help him catch the criminal and get home, he engages her. Drama, romance and love ensue.

Care to share your favorite line(s) from your story?
This is a tough one, but here are a few:

From Rayner’s (the hero) POV:
What beat within him now was nothing but raw male need, all pretenses of manners and gentlemanly etiquette long gone.

From my villain (s):
“What’s my little redhead’s name?” Diego asked.
“Faith.”
Charles heard Diego chuckle. “She won’t have much of that left when I’m finished with her.”

Faith’s father to Faith:

“…You have to quit being so adventurous, Faith. You need to follow the path that has been carved out for you, not make new ones.”

What's your next project?
My next project is Book 3 from the Six Savior Series. It is currently untitled.

Describe your writing in a sentence.
My writing is edgy, raw, sometimes funny, sometimes snarky, all bundled up in dramatic romantic
stories within the Fantasy genre.

Do you choose character names or do the characters whisper them in your ears?
When I look at names, I usually go to a baby name website or a website that lists different “strange”
names. I read through the names until my character says, “That’s me! That’s my name!” So I guess
it’s a collaboration.

Plotter or panster?
A little bit of both. I do plot out my books. I know what is going to happen and when, but I sometimes
find that my characters don’t always agree with my plotting, and I end up going by the seat of my pants
at that point until I can steer everything back on track.

Do you like background noise or do you prefer a quiet space when you write?

In my ipod I have tracks of rain falling and white noise. So I do prefer background noise, just stuff I
choose to listen to.

What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading a book titled IOU Sex. It’s pretty funny.

People think I'm weird because...
Thinking about this question, I just realized it’s only my non-writing friends who think I’m weird.
They don’t understand the fun of sitting in front of a computer and making up stories, characters,
drama and romance. My writing friends think I’m totally normal.


Blurb: 
Growing up in a small Northern Arizona town, Faith Cloudfoot’s life was spent playing in the forests surrounding her house under the protective eyes of her father, and learning about the legends of her Native American heritage. Yearning for more out of her life, she moves to Phoenix, Arizona at the age of twenty-three where she is kidnapped and almost killed. 


Rayner has a special ability, one that weighs on him like a curse. He can see spirits trapped in between life and their final resting place. Because he can’t do much to help them, he studiously ignores them. He concentrates, instead, on working with his fellow warriors to right the wrongs caused by the evil criminals from his home planet.


When Rayner sees Faith in her spirit form while investigating a lead in Phoenix, his attraction to her is immediate, yet he follows his own personal code and ignores her cry for attention. When he realizes that she may be a stepping stone to getting him home to his own universe, he engages Faith and begins to use her as a means to an end: going home.


As the attraction grows stronger, Rayner finds himself breaking all sorts of self-set rules, as well as the code of ethics set by him and his fellow warriors. When Faith nears death, Rayner realizes that he must do everything in his power to save her, because if he doesn’t, he may just lose himself.

  4. That is so neat that your characters tell you their names from the "strange" baby name list. I think that I how I picked my kids' names. Only my husband picked the #1 name not to name your baby for our 3rd son. Poor kid!
