Author has written 30 stories for Sookie Stackhouse/Southern Vampire Mysteries.
First, as always, Thank you for reading!
To all my lovely readers, especially to the many people who've corresponded with me, thanks so much for your kind comments and enthusiasm about my work. Since quite a few of you are asking, I'll say yes, it's really true, I'm feeling as if I'm just written out on the genre, and SVM in particular. I will happily still answer questions about the stories either by PM here on or on my LiveJournal. If I continue to produce online fiction, it's likely going to be non-fanfic, unless the spirit really grabs me. Writing fanfic has been a marvelous experience, both in terms of getting me to really improve as a writer in a safely bounded world, and in making me better develop original characters and plotlines. I really can't thank you, my readers, enough for all your kind feedback both here, and for those who found me at LiveJournal so they could post or message comments. You have all been a true delight to correspond with.
For my LiveJournal page, meganwrites2. Go to: meganwrites2(dot)livejournal(dot)com (I hope the clarification in the address helps.)
Note: several people have posted comments or messaged with me about these stories, or my original work, but then they have private messaging turned off so I cannot reply to their questions.
Updated Sept 13, 2010
To my lovely readers, I haven't been checking my email here as much as I should. I'm sorry for the delay in replies.
To K.K.: I have tried to respond to your email, but as before, you have messaging turned off on your account. I did remember you, of course, and thanks for your kind notes. Best regards, Meg

Older still (Fall 2008)
The Irish Series: (all set before "Dead and Gone" was published)
At the risk of sounding impatient, rather than reply to anymore PMs and reviews about the issues in "The Gamble" and "Bound", I have a FAQ below. (But please don't read it if you haven't read the stories because it will really spoil it for you.)
"From the Beginning"
"The Weave of Time"
Fans of the Irish series must be frustrated that they still don't hear anything about the potential fourteenth story being published. I just don't like it still and I like all of my readers too well to publish something I'm not happy with. We'll see if I can come up with any ideas to turn that one around.
TOTAL SPOILERS DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE FIRST FIVE STORIES FROM THE ORIGINAL SERIES MENTIONED ABOVE.
So many of you have asked about the fae bond, the rings, whose life is tied to whom and why. I have to say it makes me feel that I just don't write clearly enough. So to settle the facts firmly and clearly.
1) Niall put the spell on the ring. Sookie works the magic with her will and desire to give the gift. 2) The fae bond affects Sookie's life, not Eric's. (he's the dead guy, remember?) 3) Sookie's life is tied to Eric's (dead) life or more literally his existence. (Yeah, I know, I know...) 4) If Eric dies (for keeps) Sookie dies. 5) If Sookie dies, nothing happens to Eric other than horrible sorrow. 6) Sookie is NOT immortal now. She lives a regular lifespan. 7) Eric accepts the gift, because I assure you, there is no way the man thinks he is going to be dying for real.
FAQ#2- this FAQ relates to the second series, the New Eric/Sookie stories (Dead Accord, Dead Reckoning, etc.)
The Formal Bond mentioned in "Dead Reckoning" "Dead Set", and "So Hard" is a bond that is like that in the ceremony for vampire-vampire marriages, or a vampire-human marriage, as mentioned in various places on Charlaine Harris's website. This type of bond uses the ceremonial knife that Eric used in the bond made because of Andre. That bond was not really a formal bond because there was no clear intent to become bonded in a relationship sense at that time.
