First two authors added to STRANGE CHEMISTRY

Strange Chemistry is a new YA imprint of Angry Robot books. They are launching this fall and have just announced their very first authors that they have signed.  (To find out more about Strange Chemistry, click here)...

The first author is Kim Curran who is signed on for 2 books. The first being Shift, her debut novel,  which is about "the tale of your average, 16-year old loser Scott Tyler. When he meets the beautiful and mysterious Aubrey Jones, he learns he’s not quite so average after all. He’s a ‘Shifter’. And that means he has the power to undo any decision he’s ever made. At first, he thinks the power to shift is pretty cool. But as his world quickly starts to unravel around him he realises that each time he uses his power, it has consequences; terrible unforeseen consequences. Shifting is going to get him killed. In a world where everything can change with a thought, Scott has to decide where he stands."

Shift will be published this fall and her next novel, the sequel, will be published in 2013.

The next and last author signed so far to Strange Chemistry, is Sean Cummings. Sean is also signed on for two books with the first, Poltergeeks, being published this fall and the sequel being published in 2013.

Poltergeeks is about Julie, who "is an apprentice witch – or so she believes. When a dark power comes stalking out of the past to haunt her and her mother, Julie learns that she is far more than just a witch. With the help of her best friend Marcus and a rather unusual Great Dane, Julie has to race against time to ensure she can defeat the bad guy, save her mother and avoid being grounded – again!"

Both of these books sound like they are going to be really good so keep your eyes out for them this fall. Mark your calendars and keep checking back at the Strange Chemistry website for updates on what they have planned.
