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.

Here is a little trailer teaser so you can get a little idea of what this is about.

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. This generally means she talks too fast and use "like" a lot.

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.
You can follow her on all her links
 Also and just because I´m that cool i also have two things for you the first one is a super cool Excerpt of the book and the Second one is even more amazing Meradeth has agreed to come visit today and talk to us a little about The Fall Season
But First, how about we read that awesome excerpt.
I greeted his tombstone the way I always did—with a swift kick. The release of frustration was more than worth the sharp pain in my toes. The polished marble tilted to the left because of all my visits; a crooked tooth in the rows of pearly white graves.
            I folded my legs under me, shuddering as the chill of the damp grass seeped through my clothes. “I keep hoping one of these days you’ll be here waiting for me.” The words were tradition. Some small part of me still clung to the hope I’d come over the hill to find him leaning over his grave, wearing a sly smile. He died so very long ago, but I couldn’t stop wishing.
            Leaning forward, I rested my forehead against my knees and closed my eyes, longing for a few minutes of rest. A few minutes to pretend it was someone else buried beneath me. I tried to explain this to him, but tonight I didn’t have the will to pretend it was more than starlight that listened.
            It took a long time to notice, building imperceptibly until I finally looked over my shoulder. Someone was there, watching me. It hadn’t been a sound that alerted me so much as the feel of their gaze, heavy in the darkness. After so many nights spent here, I could tell the difference.
            For just a second, I thought I saw Frederick’s tall form step from the shadows. My heart stopped, and I started to scramble to my feet before the breeze scattered my wishful thinking. Scanning the rest of the cemetery, it was clear no one else was around. The sprinklers were hissing their rhythmic beat in the next section over, and it was better to leave before they started watering the grass over his grave. It had to be just my imagination—no one was watching me. It was for the better. If anyone saw me here, there would be problems I couldn’t face.
            I kissed my fingertips and touched the top of the smooth white stone, anxious now to leave, alert to any movement in the cemetery. “I’ll be seeing you,” I whispered, wishing it were true. I wound through the sea of identical marble markers, making for the swell of ground at the far end of the cemetery where it was easiest to catch an updraft.
            The small knoll overlooked the freeway, which was a little too close for comfort, but at this hour there were no headlights streaking past. I stretched out my wings, their emerald color turned inky black in the moonlight. Each feather ached to catch a hint of breeze. Leaping from the ground, I thrust down hard and was airborne. I circled up, straining, until I reached an altitude where no one would see me from below.
            Tilting my wings to swing north, my thoughts wandered to my destination. A silent prayer to whoever might be listening filled my heart, hoping the lonely girl I was supposed to be guarding was safe in her bed. Visiting Frederick—Derek as I’d always called him—was the only thing that kept me sane some nights, but it did nothing to dispel the churning worry over Marcy. In the year since I was assigned to her, it had become obvious she deserved a Sary better suited to helping her. Instead, she was stuck with me, and somehow I was supposed to find a way to ensure she didn’t commit suicide.
            Saving Marcy was my reward, and my price, for dying before I was born, before taking one miserable breath of life. I still wondered if my choice to join the Sary was worth it.
And now what I´ve been waiting for, lets say Hi to

The Fall Season
Hi! Thanks so much for having me here today! I love getting to know new people, especially readers :).
Today, I thought I’d talk a little about the autumn season—it’s totally one of my favorites! I recently moved and am now living where we actually have leaves changing colors and all kinds of pretty weather. I’m loving it, and have taken tons of photos :) (Granted, then it snowed on October 1st and I haven’t quite reconciled myself to the cold—it may kill this Cali girl this winter!)
One of the reasons I love fall so much is because I had a lot of fun working the changing seasons into Colors Like Memories. I’ve always been a bit obsessed with the pretty colors and bright blue sky, and because Colors is set on the East coast, I thought it would be fun to use in the atmosphere for the story. One of my favorite scenes from the book involves Julia, Edison, and an early morning trip to enjoy the scenery :). Fall also always reminds me of the need for change, and that even in the death of the year, there can be beauty. It fits well with the themes of the story, imho.
My other favorite thing about fall? Hot chocolate. It is one of my absolute favorite things on earth and I make some almost every day (which is probably not the best thing for my diet, but oh well). When I have the time, one of my favorite kinds is super dark chocolate that’s a hint spicy with little pieces of Farmer’s Cheese in it. Sounds gross, right? At least, that’s what I thought when I first came across the recipe, but it was just too strange not to try. And it is *amazing* I swear! I also have a penchant for the thick European hot chocolate that’s a lot like hot chocolate pudding. There are few things better than a warm blanket, a good book, and some tasty hot chocolate.
Do you like fall? Would you be adventurous enough to try my cheesy hot chocolate? Inquiring minds would love to know!
