Meradeth Houston~Colors Like Memories

It's my pleasure to welcome Meradeth Houston to tell you all about her print book release. Congratulations, Meradeth!  The cover is beautiful.

Hi! *waves* I'm incredibly excited to announce the paperback release for COLORS LIKE MEMORIES. The ebook release has been a blast, and it is especially awesome to actually hold the book in my hands :) Here are three things I think you might find fun about the book:

1. It's got a pretty sweet cover :) And I'm rather partial to the blurb:

Julia has a secret: she killed the guy she loved. It was an accident—sort of.

Julia is a Sary, the soul of a child who died before taking her first breath. Without this 'breath of life' she and others like her must help those on the verge of suicide. It's a job Julia used to enjoy, until the accident that claimed her boyfriend’s life—an accident she knows was her fault. If living with the guilt weren't enough, she's now assigned to help a girl dealing with the loss of her mother, something Julia's not exactly the best role model for. If she can't figure out a way to help her, Julia's going to lose her position in the Sary, something she swore to her boyfriend would never happen.

2. There have been some pretty awesome things said about it (if I do say so myself, but I may be a bit biased). See:

-"...I applaud the author for providing a writing that has the power to encourage, inspire, help, heal and simply serve as a platform to stimulate communication for any reader (regardless of age), who is feeling hopeless. If you are looking for an interesting read, this book is well written, interesting and has several positive messages that the reader can take away from the story. I would recommend this book to any reader." TWC Amazon Review

-"Colors Like Memories was an amazing YA paranormal romance. It will make you soar with wings then drop you off and catch you once you get near the ground." Michelle Kullman Amazon Review

-"COLORS LIKE MEMORIES is an achingly beautiful tale of love, loss, and new beginnings. Meradeth Houston writes with a clean, clear prose that packs a punch. She carries her characters through the full spectrum of emotions, and the reader is swept along in the journey." RunningnWriting Amazon Review

3. You don't have to wait for book #2! THE CHEMISTRY OF FATE, also set in the Sary world, is already available, and you can grab a copy at Amazon, B&N, or my publisher MuseItUp Publishing. Book #3, SURRENDER THE SKY, will also be released soon :)

You can pre-order COLORS LIKE MEMORIES at my publisher's site: MuseItUp Publishing, or find it on Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. Ebook copies are also available on all vendor sites!

Those are my three things, and if that's not enough to interest you, well, I've also got a little giveaway running for a book of your choice. Check out the rafflecopter below :)

A bit about Meradeth:
>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.

  1. Thanks SO much for hosting me!!! Off to spread the word :)

    1. You're welcome, Meradeth. I'm happy to help you celebrate.

  2. Meradeth I haven't read your book yet but from the reviews it got I am going to purchase it to read! Sounds like an exciting book! Wishing you much luck with future inspirations!!

  3. Great post! I can see why you're partial to the blurb, Meradeth - it "hooked" me. And I agree that the cover is gorgeous!

  4. Great post, Meredith. I loved the cover and blurb. I bet you're excited to see the book in print. Congratulations!

  5. Hey, Leona and nice to meet you Meredeth. Congrats on having the print book! You must be soaring! I'm so envious. Mine doesn't come out until late spring. Those of us who get so caught up in all the e-technology forget there are a ton of people who still prefer to hold the book in their hands. I'm still trying to get my DH to call them "print books" and not "real books" as he usually does. LOL Sounds like you've definitely got a winner on your hands. Continued good luck and happy writing.

    1. I am definitely happy to have something to hold in my hands. I love my kindle and read on there most of the time now, but there's something to be said for a "real" book, haha! Best of luck on your release!!

  6. Hey, Marsha! You're right about so many preferring print books. I find ebooks much easier to use, but still...

    Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Hi Meradeth! Your background in anthropology is very cool! Sequencing dead people's DNA sounds pretty exciting to me. :) Your blurb makes me totally want to read your book series. I'm glad Leona hosted you on her blog, or I might have missed a great new author.

    1. Thanks!! My job is pretty fun, I'll admit :) I'm really glad Leona hosted me too!

  8. Meradeth is a truly gifted writer and an amazing person to boot!! Meradeth Houston FAN right here, folks!!
