Sizzling Summer Giveaway with Author Meradeth Houston: Character Interview & Giveaway

Hello loves!! Today we have Meradeth Houston on the blog and she brought a character interview with Ari, her main character in her book The Chemistry of Fate!!! Enjoy!!!

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.
Find a copy at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, or the publisher MuseItUp Publishing.

Character Interview with Ari

Thanks for hosting me today! I’ll do my best to answer your questions as much as I can.

I know you’re probably a little nervous about what we’re going to ask you. Secrecy is a big part of your life, isn’t it?

-You could say that. [Looks around nervously] How much do you know?

Let’s just say we’re all pretty well informed around here. Don’t worry, you can be honest. It won’t get back to the Sary leaders.

-[Clears throat.] I guess. That’s pretty weird. You know that right?

Weird, or not, let’s get started. We’ll begin with something easy. Just what do you do, Ari?

-I’m a student at the local university. I just transferred here from California.

How about what you’re really doing here?

-[Sighs] I’m here investigating a guy who might know about some stuff he shouldn’t. The Sary. I need to make sure he doesn’t know anything, and isn’t talking to people about it.

Sounds like a pretty difficult job. What’s so important about him not knowing about these Sary?

-Um, we don’t exactly go around broadcasting what we do. Our secrecy is a huge deal. People who know about us tend to have accidents. So I have to find out if Tom has any ideas, or he’s in some serious sh—trouble.

Sounds serious! What exactly are the Sary?

-I can’t believe I’m doing this. The Sary, we’re cosmic suicide-prevention. Usually I go around trying to make sure mortals don’t kill themselves. Tom’s an exception to what I normally do. Not that it’s all happy fun and games.

That’s quite a hefty job for someone who barely looks eighteen.

-[Quirks an eyebrow] Appearances can be deceiving. Especially with the Sary.

So, tell us a little more about this Tom guy. Is he hot?

-It doesn’t matter if he’s hot or not…but he is. Even if he spends all his time studying. The best part? Oh, I don’t know why I’m saying this, but he’s one of those guys who doesn’t know he’s hot. Totally doesn’t try to be a dick. Or show off. Or flirt….ever.

Am I sensing some frustration there?

-No! He’s a mortal. Sheesh. I’m not even supposed to notice if he’s totally hot. And funny. And sweet.

You’ve got it bad.

-[Groans and hides her face in her hands] Are we done here?

Sure, sure. Thanks for joining us today, Ari! Best of luck with your assignment. And Tom.

About the Author:
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.
This is her second novel. The first book in the Sary Society series is COLORS LIKE MEMORIES and is available on Amazon.
