Number in Series: 2

Expected Release Date: April 25, 2013

Publisher: MuseItUp Publishing

Genre: Paranormal Romance/New Adult

Synopsis from Meradeth Houston

“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.

Introducing Tom from The Chemistry of Fate

Thanks so much for hosting me! I thought I’d give a brief introduction to one of the main characters from The Chemistry of Fate and all around nice guy, Tom.

So, in case you’re wondering, I’m not male. Telling Tom’s side of the story was, well, a bit interesting. Trying to get into the head of a college freshman guy is actually something I generally try to avoid. (Working with incoming freshman in some of my classes often has the potential to make me a little crazy, I’ll admit!) But, when Tom started sharing his story with me I had to get it down on paper.

One of the things that made this a little easier was that Tom’s a little obsessive about his studies. He’s a scholarship student at the local university, and while that’s great, the only way he’ll keep his scholarship is by keeping his grades up. For him, that means spending almost all of his time with his nose in a book. Which, I’ll be honest, was a lot like how I was in school. Even without the pressure of keeping my grades up now, I still find myself doing a whole lot of studying. It’s s sickness, I swear .

With that small thing I had in common with Tom, it became a lot simpler to get into his thoughts and concerns. I do kind of feel bad for the horrible things I put him through in Chemistry, but there is one giant bonus for him: Ari. While she may have been assigned to check him out and see what he may know about her kind (the Sary) it’s the chemistry they share that brings Tom to life, and gives Ari something to live for.

My other favorite thing about Tom: his pet mice. I’ll let you read the book to find out why!

I hope this small snippet into Tom’s character makes you a little curious about the rest of what goes on in The Chemistry of Fate!

Meradeth Houston's 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. This generally means she talks too fast and use "like" a lot.
>She has her doctorate in molecular anthropology. Translation: she sequences dead people's DNA and is a professional lab rat.
>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!
>Her other passion is teaching. There's nothing more fun than getting a classroom of college kids fired up about anthropology!
>If she could have a super-power, it would totally be flying. Which is a little strange, because she’s terrified of heights.
