Meradeth Houston's The Chemistry of Fate Blog tour - Guest Post

Book Blurb:
“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.

My Writing Cave

Thanks so much for hosting me today! I’m a bit ashamed to be posting about my writing spot, but it is an excellent excuse to actually clean off my desk. Granted, I’m currently not at my desk (I’ve escaped to the local bookstore), but I always enjoy seeing where everyone else writes, so I’ll share J.

The most important things that go into my writing cave are my computer and my music. The first has spell check, which I’d be pretty much lost without, and the second helps me get lost in whatever I’m working on. I pretty much always have music on, both for work and writing, and listen to anything and everything. Lately, that’s involved a lot of Imagine Dragons and Passion Pit, but The Black Keys and Train are staples.

My other writing cave components are my notebook and white board. Both help me keep track of what I’m attempting to do in the mess of a series I’m attempting to put together J. Plus, it gives me an excuse to add to my vast pen collection (I’m a major sucker for pens in every color, and cute notebooks!).

Depending on the temperature, I’m also liable to have a small bucket of hot chocolate on hand. I like to make my own, with milk and cocoa. Hubby gave me a hot chocolate maker a few years ago and I’ve nearly worn the thing out with how many batches I’ve made on cold Montana mornings/evenings/days.

As you can see in the pictures, I also have some decorations for my desk. I got a little carried away with the butterflies, and have a pretty eclectic collection of cards I’ve found here and there. I like the randomness of it, and they all have some personal meaning for me.

Maybe someday I’ll find a way to actually have a clear desk while I’m at it, but that’s certainly not today!


About Me:

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.
