Genre – Children’s, Fantasy, Mythology
RADHIKA VARMA has an overactive imagination – everyone says so. But when she is chosen to participate in a Challenge held in Prestoria – the land of nightmares, she must use every bit of wild imagination she possesses to fight for her life. As one of eleven Dream Catchers and armed only with her imagination, Radhika must conjure her own weaponry against powerful ancient creatures like the Vyalas and the Rakshasas, and get to the magical portal before dawn. Fail to do so, and she will be forced to stay behind in Prestoria forever.
But when she is suspected of attacking the other Dream Catchers, Radhika realizes that there is more going on than meets the eye. With mere minutes left until dawn, will Radhika manage to clear her name, complete the Challenge and get back home, or will a thirst for vengeance lead to Prestoria claiming her as its own?

She just wants to fit in. But can a gifted teen find her place when she’s caught between good and evil?
After the sudden death of her mother, Lucy Walker leaves her small town for a fresh start in the City of Chicago. Lucy hopes life with her uncles will be less dramatic than the one she left behind. But her hopes are quickly turned upside down.
Beginning with a disturbing encounter at the airport, Lucy steps into a world she never imagined. From the discovery that she’s half-witch, half-demon, meeting the father she never knew, and run-ins with the mysterious boy who lives in the apartment upstairs, Lucy’s new life is not what she expected.

Persistent attacks from a dangerous stranger temporarily sideline Lucy’s search for the beloved family pet. Despite her reluctance to embrace her new gifts, Lucy is forced to team up with her brooding, dark-eyed neighbor to hunt down the truth. But when she discovers the connections between her own history and the secretive boy’s true nature, she’s thrust headfirst into an ancient battle…where choosing the wrong side could prove fatal.
Will Lucy accept her destined role before the darkness destroys everything she loves?

About C.A. King

 

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…
