BLOG TOUR!! Chemistry of Fate by Meradeth Houston

At the Other End:
 “They are everywhere, can be anyone, and are always the last person you’d expect.” When Tom stumbles across his grandfather’s journal, he’s convinced the old man was crazier than he thought. The book contains references to beings called the Sary, immortals who are assigned to save humans on the verge of suicide. They certainly aren’t allowed to fall in love with mortals. Which the journal claims Tom’s grandfather did, resulting in his expulsion from the Sary. As strange as the journal seems, Tom can’t get the stories out of his head; especially when he finds the photo of his grandfather’s wings.

Tom’s only distraction is Ari, the girl he studies with for their chemistry class.

Ari has one goal when she arrives in town: see how much Tom knows about the Sary and neutralize the situation. This isn’t a normal job, but protecting the secrecy of the Sary is vital. If Tom is a threat to exposing the Sary to the public, fate has a way of taking care of the situation, usually ending with the mortal’s death. While Ari spends time with Tom, he becomes more than just an assignment, but how far can a relationship go when she can’t tell him who she really is? When she finds out just how much Tom actually knows about the Sary, Ari is forced to choose between her wings, and her heart.

THE CHEMISTRY OF FATE is a companion to COLORS LIKE MEMORIES and is set before the latter takes place. It is geared toward an upper YA, or New Adult audience.

Author Bio:

Meradeth’s never been a big fan of talking about herself, but if you really want to know, here are some random tidbits about her:
>She’s a Northern California girl, but now lives and teaches anthropology in Montana.
>When she’s not writing, she’s sequencing dead people’s DNA. For fun!
>She’s been writing since she was 11 years old. It's her hobby, her passion, and she’s so happy to get to share her work!
>If she could have a super-power, it would totally be flying. Which is a little strange, because she’s terrified of heights.

Take A Seat. Get Strapped In. Let's Go For A Ride:

1. Where have we seen you before? (previous projects/works)
Hi! I’m the author of Colors Like Memories, and if you happen to get around the anthropology field, you may have seen me there too J.

2. What goes through your mind after your novel has been on sale for the first week?
“Oh please, please, please let some people like it! And if more people would pick up a copy, I’d love them forever.”

3. What inspired you to write this novel?
I’m a really big fan of journaling, so that was a huge source of inspiration for this novel. Tom’s grandfather left behind a journal with a very important secret, which plays a central role!

4. What do you think about when getting/seeing negative reviews?
I try to remind myself that it’s impossible to please everyone, and everyone has different taste. There have been plenty of books that some people love but I didn’t enjoy. And then, with some reviews, I kind of wish I could hex people J. Nothing terrible, but maybe make their toes itch for a few days or something!

5. How long was the writing/planning process?
I wrote the first take on this novel during a couple of months. Then decided to re-vamp it, which took about four months. Overall, probably six months.

6. What was your reaction to the cover art when you saw it for the first time? Did you have any ideas from the days of writing/inspiration?
I was totally amazed! I love this cover. I had plenty of thoughts and ideas from when I was writing, and this cover was completely different, but it’s so pretty I was blown away!

7. Any plans for future writing projects? Any being worked on now?
-I’m currently working on a very different book, along with the third Sary book, which I’m currently attempting to revise.

8. Top 5 books
• A Wrinkle In Time by Madeline L’Engle
• The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater
• Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
• The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon
• The Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters

9. What book/s from other authors do you wish you had written?
A Wrinkle In Time For certain. And if I’m dreaming, Harry Potter J.

10. Why read your novel?
 If you’re looking for a fun read with lots of impossible romance and a really sweet guy, Chemistry is for you!
