Introducing...Strange Chemistry's First Two Authors & their Books!

A couple of month's ago, I was alerted of Strange Chemistry, an upcoming global imprint for YA sci-fi and fantasy books. Awesomely enough, Amanda Rutter, the editor of Strange Chemistry, is a former book blogger. From then on, I became a regular reader of the Strange Chemistry blog and eagerly awaited the announcement of their first books...and finally that time has arrived, and I've decided to share a bit about each book with you all!


Kim Curren is one of the two new authors. Kim's first book is titled Shift and will be released this fall with a sequel following in 2013. Here's some info about the book straight from their website:
Her debut novel, Shift is 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.
Doesn't it sound awesome?! I especially love how it will be told from a boy's POV, and the paranormal aspect seems unique a well.


Sean Cummings is the second. His first book is Poltergeeks, which will be released this fall with a sequel to follow in 2013 as well. Here's some info about it:
Julie 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! 
Witches?! I can't wait!


Strange Chemistry's titles will be released in paperback and in all major eBook formats. Distribution is through Random House for North America and GBS for the UK. 

Are excited about either or both of these upcoming books?! Let me know in the comments, and be sure to check out Strange Chemistry's website for more info as well as weekly blog posts! It's a lot of fun, trust me! :)
