WIP it Real Good: Paranormal Romance Author Ali Lucia Sky + giveaway

I’m so excited to share a tidbit of my next book! Wishcraft is the second book in The Powers That Be series and I’ve been having a fun time writing it. Some characters in book one blossom in book two and it’s been a real joy to see where my characters are taking my story--I let them free and they tend to write the book for me.

The part I’m going to share with you is pre-edit and proofreading. Please ignore any grammar errors. The interaction is between Michaela, my FMC from book one, and Whisper who is the MMC from book two. They have a special relationship (not romantic) and I’ve loved seeing how that has developed.

I look at the clock, I have six hours to write a five hundred word essay. No problem.

An hour later I am walking from room to room, lost. I’m not able to focus. There are no more Starbucks Frappes. I don’t know what to do with myself when Whisper comes back down, shirtless and with low hanging boxers.

“Don’t think that I have an issue with bodies in general, but you know that your’s all fucking naked and stuff is inappropriate and unwanted.” I plop down on the floor surrounded by my school stuff and grab my laptop.

“Clothes are uncomfortable,” is his reply.

“Naked roomies are uncomfortable, asshat!” I say loud enough for him to hear me as he moves into the kitchen.

“Why is the fridge empty again?” He asks walking into the living room with a glass of water and what has to be a stale cookie, since I don’t know where he found it and I had thought all the cupboards were bare of goodies.

“I told Dora to take it next door for mom. She said she would bring me a sandwich later.” I say arching my neck to stretch out the tight muscles.

“Get some shoes on, we are going grocery shopping,” he says heading to the stairs.

“Are you putting on pants for this excursion? It's nipplely out and you know how shrinkage will happen in the freezer aisle.” I call out to him.

“Shut up,” is his reply and a few minutes later thudding follows him through the house. When he gets back down I’m still staring at my laptop.

“I can’t go. I didn’t start my paper and my shoes are all the way in the other room. They didn’t come when I called for them.”

He sighs like I’m a huge pain in the ass. “I’ll help you write it when we get back. You need food. You lost more color since yesterday.”

“Wait! Are you telling me I’m turning into a white girl?” I gasp like a miracle really occurred.

Whisper rolls his eyes and goes to fetch my shoes, a jacket, and my purse. He’d be a great boyfriend if it wasn’t for the fact that I’m already in love with his other best friend.

I moan at the sharp pain that radiates through my soul.

“Stop thinking of Gabe and get dressed,” he tosses my stuff next to me on the floor.

Wishcraft will be released in February. It’s been a joy to share it.

The Dream Keepers: The Powers That Be - Book 1
by Ali Lucia Sky
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.

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.

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!

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
