Keeper of the Watch
by 
Kristen L. Jackson
Genre: YA Sci-fi/fantasy
Release date: February 1st 2018
Black Rose Writing


Chase Walker is beginning to doubt his sanity. From the moment he turned eighteen, a strange paranoia has taken over his mind. It all started the moment he discovered his uncle’s old watch... 

The watch calls to him. Though it beckons, he resists. His body strains toward it, blood pulsing, heart pounding in a mysterious and primitive need to connect with his uncle’s old beat up watch. 

When sexy and mysterious Alyx saves his life, she promises answers. She talks of dimension travel, and wears a magical watch of her own…




 

A look inside the world building
In KEEPER OF THE WATCH, world building was relatively easy. When Chase and Alyx jump to Dimension 7, they arrive in the same town…with a twist. The story takes on a dystopian feel, but the town itself and the characters remain the same underneath the destruction wrought there by the new ‘Rulers’ and their army. Food is rationed, curfews are in effect, and family members are taken to ‘serve’ in the army. It is a fear-based society, and causes the town to be run-down and in massive disrepair. I love creating worlds that originate in my imagination; it’s so much fun!
