What inspired the book?

Haha, everything I have ever read! I do not think there is any one thing that I can say inspired me above all else. Being a reader is what made me want to become a writer, and the books I love, the music I listen to the movies I watch—all played a part in my book becoming what it is. I knew I wanted to write something in the YA genre, because those are the books
I read most often. Since they are the ones I enjoy, it was natural to write something that fit the category.

I’ve always been an avid reader, and in middle and high school I would find myself reading a book and when something would happen, I would start thinking, “What if this had happened instead…?” And a new story would start taking shape in my head. Because of that, I’ve had an ongoing list of things that I thought would make good books since I was in middle school, and the idea for Rising Calm came out of one of those ideas. It was my favorite, even though all I knew was the most general of ideas: I want a girl from earth to be destined to save another world.

Cara’s name and age changed as I grew up a little more and read more and watched more movies. I would read something like Maximum Ride where the main girl is fourteen and kicking butt, and I would think, “That could work.” And then I moved into high school and would think, “I don’t want her to be in middle school. I want her to be here, in the surroundings I’m familiar with now.” Cara changed as I changed, which meant the story shifted, which means some of the inspiration came out of my own life.

And it did. Not that I am out doing magic with my Lyrian friends or anything, but feelings and thoughts and experiences are sometimes drawn from my own life. Otherwise, the story would not feel real to me or to the readers Therefore, things I hear, see, or go through myself can often be found woven into the story. Other times I will hear a quote and a scene around that single quote will form in my head. Other times I will be somewhere new and see a scene take shape in that setting. Or maybe I will see something on the news or online that I simply cannot get past, so I will figure out how my characters could overcome something like that, be it the terror of a fire or a shooting, or prejudice, or discrimination, or hate.

There are a multitude of quotes out there about how people who are writers or artists see the world a little differently than the rest of the population. I think that is true. I think writers can draw inspiration out of anything they want, anything they see or read or touch or experience. It’s all in the way the experience affects you.

Rising Calm
by Haley Fisher
IMG_4416About The Author:
 I'm Haley Fisher, a college student in Kansas, and I've just signed a contract with a company called Silver Tongue Press to publish my first book!
For as long as I can remember I've been an avid reader and an aspiring writer, but the step toward actually getting a book published is an enormous one for me. This is a big deal. And, as I've been told, the next step to being successful is getting the word out that my book exists.

So, though it's not in print yet—it's coming out February 14th—I'd love for people to keep an eye out for Rising Calm. It'll be the first in a series of books about a young girl who finds out her life and her fate are far bigger than  she ever realized. At the risk of giving too much away, the most I can tell you for now is that there is magic, prophecy, new worlds, and a cast of characters who I love to write.

Rising
Calm 3DGenre: Young Adult Fantasy

Publisher: Silver Tongue Press

Release Date: February 14, 2013

Book Description:
On Cara Weaver’s first day at her new high school—merely the next in a long line of new
schools—she meets two senior boys: James Sable and Crispin Calaway. They’re new too; they’ve been at the school just longer than she has, and they’ve never made an effort to reach out to anyone. Until she comes. When her friends find out, they’re awed. But Cara can't shake the feeling that there’s more to James and Crispin than the two are telling.

 
 As the days go on, everything at her new home seems to be going better than it has in any of the previous cities she’s lived in. She loves her friends, gets a job at a bookstore, and even starts to spend more time with Crispin and James. She’s happy. But all that begins to change when she comes to realize that the two boys she’s becoming close to are hiding something. It’s then that she knows her
unexplainable wariness of them has been justified all along. But she keeps it a secret.


Days later, when a stranger accosts her outside a small shopping center, Crispin and James arrive just in time to help her. But they seem to know the attacker. And instead of running him off, Crispin and James take Cara away, for her own protection.



With little explanation, Cara is told that she’s important and that she can’t go home until the boys have sorted some things out. In the meantime, Cara’s world is being turned upside down as she finds out that there is more to her life than she possibly imagined.
