Updates and Release Week Jitters

Standard

Well hello again! First thing’s first. As most of you know Tuesday was release day for Homecoming and I’ve been a bit nervous about it. I would have spent my time eating my weight in chocolate, but unfortunately that luxury has been denied me by me evil gallbladder.

Which leads me to news número dos. It seems my gallbladder has served it’s notice and wishes to no longer aid in…whatever it is gallbladders do. I’m meeting with a surgeon today to discuss my options. Mainly when and where I’ll be getting the damn thing removed.

A book release and prospective surgery in the same week you say? My life is a ball of all that is exciting.

ANYWAY, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who made my release week wonderful. Thank you to everyone who purchased, reviewed, hated, and loved Homecoming. I know the book is rather short, but stick with me here, there’s so much more to come for the town of Devotion, Georgia and the Southern Honor series in general.

I leave you now with a victory dance for making it to the other side of the release day jitters…

They call me Meredith

Standard

So you’ve stumbled upon my humble little blog. Please, sit. Relax. Keep reading.

I suppose you’re wondering who this crazy woman is, yes?

Well, they call me Meredith Daniels. Or more accurately, I chose to call myself Meredith.

Pleased to meet you.

Like so many authors I’ve decided to use a pen name. Not for any particularly nefarious reason outside the idea that it makes my life a little less complicated. How can creating a whole new person be easier you ask? Trust me, it does. Probably for the same reasons so many other authors choose to write under another name.

So who am I?

I’m a writer. And I come fully equipped with all the personality quirks that lofty title entails. It takes a certain kind of person to create a whole new world on the page. My particular worlds usually contain two people who desperately need to be loved.

I never set out to be a romance author. There was no adolescent epiphany. No stunning ah-ha moment. No voice of God stating I shall write romance. Now, hold on before you scoff. I didn’t say I wasn’t drawn to writing. I lived for telling stories. Needed it like oxygen, or water. Or chocolate. When I set out to write my first story, the idea that it would be a romance never entered my mind until I made it to that first love scene. It just flowed from me and I knew that this was what I was meant to be doing. Even if it wasn’t an obvious conclusion, somewhere in my writerly subconscious I KNEW sharing with readers how people find love was what I needed to be doing.

So hello, I’m Meredith Daniels and I write romance.
