The Twilight Saga

April 21, 2009

There are a lot of things I should be doing updates on—for example, how awesome and successful the Book Babe event was, and how cool it was to meet all the other authors and hang out with them a little bit, and how much I appreciated all the tremendous support from the fans—but instead of commenting on happy things (which I admit I should have done a week ago; I was waiting for things to slow down for a day, silly me!), I’m commenting on ridiculous internet rumors so that my publicist’s day will be just a little bit better.

I am not being sued. No one has contacted me or my publisher to inform either of us that I’m being sued. I never had a roommate named Heidi. There is no professor in the BYU English department named Dr. Peter Benton (though there is a character on ER by that name). And most of all, I began writing Twilight exactly the way I’ve told people in countless interviews and events for the past six years: I had a cool dream, I wrote it down, writing it down was really fun, so I kept writing until I had a whole book.

The sad thing about this silly situation is that so many legitimate news outlets reported it without doing any research at all to determine if there was any truth to the story. And at least two of these facts are really, really easy to confirm. Particularly, the one about the BYU professor. A simple on-line search can give you that information. Also, a quick call to my publisher would have cleared up the whole lawsuit story. (Kudos to the fansites who did their due diligence and debunked this rumor days ago.)

I guess the moral of the story is that—big surprise—you can’t believe everything you read on the internet. Seems like it’s April Fool’s Day every day on-line. So no worries, the filming of New Moon continues uninterrupted. And, to end this on a bright note, the filming of New Moon continues to be awesome. It’s all so beautiful! Chris Weitz is brilliant. Kristen, Rob, and Taylor are beyond words. I have gotten choked up more than once on set due to their amazing performances. I can’t wait to see it all put together!

I know that you have probably heard this a lot but I love your books. I wish you could know how I feel when I read them. I am really disappointed that you ended the series on Breaking Dawn but you've already given so much wonderful work I can't really be mad at you. I wish you would continue writing Midnight Sun and hopefully write New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn in Edward's point of view too. But why would you listen to a silly young girl with the hope to believe vampires are real? That's probably what other famous people would do. But I ask you to take this into consideration for me, and for the rest of your fans. I think you did a fantastic job!

Stephenie,

I read all of your books (including The Host) and love them. I never read a book completely until your books.So thank you for grabing my attention and keeping it. I have to ask though, do you plan on writing any more books about any of the characters in the Twillight saga? I would love to have edwards side on all of them but can understand your side of not wanting to finish midnight sun because of what happened. I would also love to have more stories and information on all of the other main characters. If so thanks these are great.

hey. I dnt believe much of the stuff I read on the internet, so I was just wondering if you were going to finish writing Midnight Sun. If you can answer my question that would be great and just put a comment on my page or email me with the answer.
Thanks a million.

I hate to hear that someone leaked your book Midnight Sun before it was finished, but I have to say that I would love it if you did finish the book. I feel that the book gave me a look into Edward's mind and also a look at what he was doing when he was not with Bella. I would read every book that showed the saga through his eyes. There are not many books that can keep my attention, but the Twilight Saga did just that. I look forward to seeing New Moon. I am sure you get several of this messages a day, but can I add that I would not be upsest to see the saga turned into a mini series or something that I could watch every week.

Thank you again for your talent to write and keep people's attention.

P.S. I am 34 years old so it is not only the young that love your work, it is the old as well.
