The Science Club

by C.A. King

The Science Club is out to prove there is one universal equation for love.

It started as a joke. It continued as a tradition. Somewhere along the line, invites became an honour and joining an elite privilege. Now, the all-female member roster is shaking up the status quo.

Ten years after inception, they have a formula. All that’s left is to test their theory and the resident bad-boy just became their lab rat.

I was diagnosed with clinical depression after the loss of my mother, father and husband within three years of each other; all to cancer. 24/7 in-home care, coupled with the loss I felt, left its mark on my psyche.

Depression takes up a lot of my life. Reading and writing are the only things I have found that help (in connection with regular medication), even if only for a short time. To escape to a different world can make a big difference in my mood in real time.

To put things in perspective, when I was at my lowest point, I couldn’t open mail, talk on the phone, or even drive to the store. Walls of sadness surrounded me. As they closed in, tears would fall. There didn’t need to be a reason or trigger.

People ask me why I started writing. My answer is simple: I wanted to create a world into which other people with similar problems could escape. I wanted to share the one place that had helped me for many years.

I have always said that as long as one person finds a little bit of happiness out of my books, I am, in my opinion, an accomplished author. The same is true for every writer out there. Please don’t ever let anyone tell you different.

I read books as well as write them and have visited the worlds many different authors have created. Those worlds not only make me feel better, but give me the strength to face real life again. I want to thank everyone who writes—I want them to know they are making a difference.

Fast forward to today…

C.A. King, USA Today Bestselling Author has over 60 books available across multiple fantasy sub-genres.

Sneak Peek of The Dream Keepers by Ali Lucia Sky

Excerpt

Thea points to the page again and says, “I think it will work if you talk it out instead of thinking it. Pick something you want to happen. Then go through the process like it’s spelled out here. Meanwhile, I’ll close my eyes and see if I can picture what it is you are envisioning.”

I have to control my ever-arching eyebrow from hitting my hairline so Thea won’t see my dubiousness. “What if there is nothing I want?”

Her shoulders drop, her lips flatten. “Forget I asked, Gabriel. Michaela will help me. She isn’t dismissive like you, she said she wanted to know more about what I do anyway. Even if she is just humoring me, she wouldn’t be an asshole about it like you are.”

“Wait!” I’m hit by inspiration.

Michaela Beauchamp.

Mike.

Yep. I would love to actualize my desires for her. All. Day. Long. Some more so than others. Some not in front of my sister. But at the moment I want to actualize the one where she’s gone.

Gone.

Gone.

GONE!

Two months without the distracting virago on my mind would give me boundless joy.

“I know what I want. If you think this can work, I’m all over it. I know what I need control over.”

Thea looks uncertain. She’s trying to determine if I’m serious or playing her again.

She and I share a lot of the same features. Hers are more delicate than mine. I rarely notice them anymore since she took to slathering so much make-up on. But I recognize suspicion twinkling in her dark brown eyes. She’s not wearing contacts today and her eyes are the same dark nutty color as mine. Our father says that look of suspicion is my go-to look. It doesn’t look so attractive on my sister, though, as it looks on me.

I kick back on my sister’s bed with my back to her headboard and close my eyes. “I wish Mike would disappear while I’m here in McKeesport. Maybe she has an aunt that is looking for a child for her oven. She could go away to summer camp at Crystal Lake. Kidnapped by gypsies. Falls down a rabbit hole. Make friends with someone named Shawn or Harry who tours the world and needs fangirl repellent. Finds a hobby.”

“I could learn to make voodoo dolls.” The voice of Hell’s spawn replies.

ABOUT THE BOOK

The Dream Keepers
by Ali Lucia Sky
Publication date: October 11th 2021
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal, Romance

This World is just one of thousands of Worlds the Makers have created. The Universe and Makers are playing with those who live on it.

GABRIEL
No one who had met Michaela Beauchamp could come away from it unscathed. She was a shrew–argumentative, crass, and the focus of all my wet dreams. I loved to hate her. We were at war and I was determined to win. I didn’t want her to just go away, I wanted to watch her fine ass as she went in that direction.

MICHAELA
Whoever thought Gabriel Langdon was more than a pretty face never met the douchecanoe.
He had very few redeeming qualities. He was dumb, frustrating, and constantly featuring in all my sexiest dreams. I wasn’t difficult to please. I was reasonable. All I asked was that the Universe bless me with the absence of this jackhole!

THEA
What is one to do when you summon a hitchhiker and they take up residence inside your head? No fifteen-year-old girl has a good answer. With my brother and neighbor circling one another in a strange mating dance, I barely know how to ask for help.

I mean really, all I did was a little spell to Invoke Helpful Spirits and Positive Energy Beings.

Note: THE DREAM KEEPERS is a mature Young Adult/New Adult book and for readers over the age of 18 due to sexual content and profanity. This is part one of a trilogy and ends on a CLIFFHANGER.
This book is rated M for Mischief.

October 2021 – The Dream Keepers
February 2022 – Wishcraft
October 2022 – TBA

Rose
When my mom told me we were moving to the Grove, I thought it was a joke.
Our family, one of the wealthiest in Woodbury, moving to a dump like the Grove?
Well, I guess that’s what happens when you lose everything.
Now we’re shoved into the house the size of a shoebox and I can literally feel the darkness seeping in around me.
But then, I meet someone with a darkness that even I can’t compete with.
They call him the Reaper.
Easton
Darkness has consumed me my entire life.
I’ve known nothing but death and destruction, using my fists to control the beast within me.
Then, after yet another win in the ring, I find my Rose.
A little ball of light, I think.
But no, her eyes hold the familiar darkness that calls to me.
Alone, I live with my demons.
Together, we will conquer them.
Welcome to hell, baby girl.

Rose
I thought I had life figured out.
Until I crashed into the brink of tragedy.
That peak in which you teeter on the line of sanity versus insanity.
The moment where you look forward and see darkness, then look over your shoulder and see more darkness.
Pain is probably down either avenue I choose, but which one will keep me intact?
Which one will make me crumble?
How many times can tragedy happen to a person until they break for good?
One, two, three…
Easton
I grew up in darkness.
I thought I knew what It’s like to walk through life shrouded in a world without light.
Pain never mattered much, because it’s all I’ve ever known.
She walked into my life like a sharp thorn that I knew would bleed me dry.
I was okay with that, as long it was her that was by my side.
I never realized that the darkness I lived in wasn’t dark at all.
I never really knew darkness.
Until tragedy on top of tragedy strikes and I feel like an atomic bomb ready to detonate.
How long will it take?
Three, two, one…

A fracture so deeply embedded in me that I can barely breathe.

Life seems good, for the moment.
Until I meet the brother, the man that pulls me into the darkest waters.
My life gets submerged into a world of bliss and euphoria, a place I’ve never been before.
Then devastation crashes into my life like a wave.
The crack in my soul shatters.
And I drown.
