Stephenie Meyer’s reality altered substantially on June 2, 2003. The stay-at-home mother of three young sons awoke from a dream featuring apparently true people that she couldn’t get out of her mind.
She had this to assert concerning the actual dream she had that night:
“Despite the fact that I had a million things to attend to, I remained in my bed, contemplating the dream. Not entirely willingly, I eventually got up and then performed the important essentials, after which put almost everything which I possibly could do upon the back burner and sat down in front of the laptop in order to write – a thing I hadn’t achieved in so long that I pondered precisely why I was bothering now.”
Meyer developed the plot in the course of the daytime while in swim tuition, and wrote it out late that night the moment the household was tranquil. Three months afterwards she concluded her foremost work of fiction, Twilight. Through enticement coming from her elder sister (the only other person who knew she had authored a novel), Meyer presented her manuscript to various literary specialists. Twilight ended up being picked out of a slush stack at Writer’s House and consequently made its way to the publishing organization Little, Brown where everyone fell instantaneously in love with the gripping storyline involving the troubled lovers.
Twilight was one of 2005′s most spoke of works of fiction and within weeks of its launch the publication debuted at number 5 on The New York Times bestseller list. Among its many accolades, Twilight was named an “ALA Top Ten Books for Young Adults,” an Amazon.com “Best Book of the Decade…So Far”, in addition to a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year.
The highly-anticipated sequel, New Moon, was circulated in September 2006, and spent well over 25 weeks at the number 1 position on The New York Times bestseller list.
In 2007, Eclipse was first released and devotees made the Twilight Saga a worldwide sensation! Through night time parties and vampire-themed proms the eagerness for the saga continued to develop.
On May 6, 2008, Little, Brown and Company introduced The Host, Meyer’s hugely awaited publication for adults which debuted at number 1 on The New York Times and also Wall Street Journal bestseller lists. The Host still remains a staple choice upon the bestseller listings well over 12 months following its release.
