The Twilight Saga

Hey!

In case there is still confusion on the issue of Midnight Sun ever being published. . . I quote from her website, in the Midnight Sun left tab:
After providing the first chapter as a sneek peek, she goes on to promise that the final product will be 'infinitely superior.'

As of June 2008, Stephenie relayed the message to us on her site that ". . . Midnight Sun is her next project. She has not yet finished writing it (and there is no timeline set up, so we all need to put a lot of effort into being patient for a while longer), but she is definitely still planning on having it published. And, after Breaking Dawn comes out, Stephenie will have much more time to focus on writing Midnight Sun."

Another update: August 28, 2008.
This is after August 2nd, when Breaking Dawn made its debut on the shelves.
Regarding the leak of Midnight Sun she says in this most recent post, ". . . I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on Midnight Sun, and so it is on hold indefinitely."

Since then she has commented during interviews and personal correspondences (found on the viable twilight lexicon) that she had planned for Spring of '09 for it to be published and out on the shelves--BUT then the leak happened. She now wants to get other characters out there too, such as her long-harbored sirens.

The most recent update: November 5, 2008
http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20234559_20234567_20238527_3,00.htm !! Check it out. Here Stephenie says, regarding Midnight Sun, "I do not feel alone with the manuscript. And I cannot write when I don't feel alone. So my goal is to go for, like, I don't know, two years without ever hearing the words 'Midnight Sun'. And once I'm pretty sure that everyone's forgotten about it, I think I'll be able to get to the place where I'm alone with it again. Then I'll be able to sneak in and work on it again." She goes on to talk about other ideas she's been throwing around. In the previous pages of the interview in the link, she talks about her post-post-leak feelings and how she feels after she's had time to calm down.

Also the twilight Lexicon (twilightlexicon.com) is such a credible sight and has Stephenie's Personal Correspondences which answer a lot of questions that all of us have.

Everything that I've said above does NOT mean that Midnight Sun won't be published! She promised herself that she would finish this. So she didn't provide a date or she didn't directly tell anyone that it was going to be published, but who cares! Have some optimism. The more suspense the better. . . right? Yeah, yeah okay. Anyway. There is still hope and although this year she's told us she will be ". . . spending more time with my family and working on some other writing projects." I believe Midnight Sun will be WELL worth the wait if it's published. This will be worth it.

Feel free to ask me any questions or I guess. . . 'friend me' if you wanna talk Twilight! ( I'd be so happy to do so :] )

Hey guys--So I guess you've all heard the gossip about Midnight Sun.
Check out the site: http://www.4tnz.com/node/26400.

Since this discussion is called--here's the deal according to STEPHENIE I'm not supporting this information. I personally don't find this site reliable. Why wouldn't they give a link or a deeper reference to the event?
The site claims that Stephenie finished Midnight Sun and will publish it in May.

They have her saying:
"I've always wanted to finish this book, and the fans have been so great, I knew I had to do it for them," the author revealed Tuesday (March 31) at a book signing in Las Bromas, California. "I enjoyed this so much, I'm going to begin work on Full Moon, which is New Moon told through Jacob's perspective."
But Stephenie has said on her website, in correspondences and interviews (you can reference the first video on my page with her and Kristen and Rob, she says this---http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PanjNm50oKc&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fww... around 5:30) that she will never give information on a project she is working on because you never know how long it will take to publish or complete and as we all know--she doesn't want to have the media and fans pressuring her. She likes to be alone with her characters which she finds difficult when she's being over-scrutinized.

And come on, a movie on Midnight Sun? When New Moon isn't even out? How would the movie be much different than Twilight besides Rob having voice-overs instead of Kristen. And having more information about the Cullens prior to Bella meeting the family. Not too much.

I will update this site according to Stephenie and Stephenie only. When this info comes up on her website--THEN it's legit.


Love you all!! *Fingers Crossed*!

I know what stephanie means when she says that she needs to be alone....so i feel srry for her that this happened but i really hope that she still writes midnight sun and i hope that the person that leaked will be introuble for it cuz thats messed up....
I agree with you also Sandra...All I have to say is..."What would Edward do? or how would Edward feel about this whole situation?"...he is a noble vampire!
We do support her by going to the movie and buying the books. She has a job and a committment to uphold to her fans. Just as any other artist. Because a singer had a bad day or people are being mean to her in the tabs, she can't just cancel concerts...It is a part of the "beast" and she needs to figure it out. I realize she wasn't looking for this kind of stardom or attention, but it is here. Work it, do it or go home...Anything else is unprofessional. I get she is hurt and disappointed, so take it out on the one that leaked it. Not your fans. Like the speculation about the book, say yes I will or no i won't finish it and let it be done. Don't leave all these people hanging, that is what pisses me off. Plus she is an adult and a mom, get over it already. One thing you have to learn as a parent, you really can't take anything personally or hold a grudge. Otherwise, I'd never talk to my kids again after the first, I hate you. :)

If she wanted to be "alone with the book" to finish it, seems to me she would post on her site, I am finishing it eventually, just not at this time". That would stop the talk on it.
but for a singer they can just write a song about how they feel as a writer you can't just push those feeling to the side a write a book that calls for so much emotion i understand where your coming from but you can't expect someone who puts so much emotion into there writing to be able to finish when they have been hurt i mean think about it if she did try to finish she might have had Edward kill Bella or something i mean i know she is in a better place but with everyone talking about it and bringing it up it is just going to make her feel worse and not better just give her time and she will eventually finish the book i am looking forward to the day when i am walking threw the store and see it done like everyone else but give her some credit she is trying
she needs 2 suck it up...so what a guy sent out an unfinsihed copy of her book...was it right? NO! was it her fault or any of ours? NO! she needs 2 suck it up...i mean...ill support her and everything...but seriously...she bein a bit of a baby
its not the worst posible way though...dont u see? the worst betrayal would be your on mother killed your son while u were watchin and then turned on u and killed u after u heard ur sons screams for help..no shes bein a baby...she doesnt realie the pain she is causin 4 some ppl...4 some ppl this book was their life
its not like she planed it that way but how can you expect her to feel the same why she did when she was first writing it i know if something i had written got taken and it was not finished i would feel really bad..... she is just trying to get to a place where she can feel better and not completely ruin the book
shes not doing anything to hurt us she was hurt herself because of this and she doesn't know if she can finish it right away cause she has to hear everyone's ideas about it when it is her writing it!
I agree all she has done is left us on a huge cliff hanger for the last 6 months witch is very depressing and anoyin. tbh she really needs 2 put a new update on her website even if it is that shes still not ready to finish it but then at least we will no that she is still considering in her fans as well as her feelings on this topic as she must be as upset as us.
I'd love an update. When I read the post in June first I was ecstatic then I got to the August post and I was deflated. I just wont it so bad!
I hope she will decide to finish it! I mean a know it must have been hard for her to see her unfinished book posted on the Internet, but that doesn't mean she had to stop! I go to her page every day hoping she has posted something about Midnight Sun! Nothing so far...
I go to her site everday too, and it's a little depressing that she's not saying anything about it :'(
