Which do you hope get made?
Since we are having a Jodelle Ferland day why not talk about the book that was written about the character she played in Eclipse, Bree Tanner. This book was phenomenal! I read it in one sitting and couldn’t put it down. I really wish we had more novellas like this for other characters in the book series. If you don’t have a copy yet or know a friend that needs one you can pick up this amazing book at Amazon.
The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner is the riveting story of Bree Tanner, a newborn vampire
first introduced in Eclipse, and the darker side of the world she inhabits. The novella chronicles the newborn vampire army’s journey as they prepare to close in on Bella Swan and the Cullens, following their encounter to its unforgettable conclusion.
APP chatted with Stephenie Meyer to talk about a decade of Twilight.
See what she had to say here.
Below is an excerpt:
“It feels like I’m super, super old,” said Meyer, 39. “Like 10 years? Oh, my gosh, I don’t know where it went. But it’s amazing to stop and think back to my life 10 years ago and how drastically it has changed. I just wouldn’t have seen any of it coming. If you had told me back then, ‘Ten years from now you’ll be promoting a movie you produced,’ I’d have been like, ‘What drugs are you taking?’ It’s so bizarre.”

Stephenie Meyer Day is a celebration of all things Twilight and a way to say ‘thank you’ to Stephenie Meyer for her amazing contribution to literature! Her stories introduced us to a world we never knew existed. Hidden away in the beautiful Olympic Peninsula is the small town of Forks, Washington, shrouded in an almost constant cover of clouds. It is here that we will gather from September 12-15to celebrate our love of Twilight, the fandom we’ve grown to love, and the friends we’ve met along the way.
Stephenie Meyer Day and the Olympic Coven would like to ask you to join us in saying ‘thank you’ to the incomparable Stephenie Meyer. Write a letter, draw a picture, print out your pictures from Twilight events, etc. to show your appreciation. Submissions must be on a standard sheet of paper (8 ½ by 11) and no more than three pages long. If your submission is any longer or on any other size paper, we cannot guarantee it will be included. Submissions must be received by August 31, 2013. Please submit your “thanks” to:
Stephenie Meyer Day
PO Box 1268
Loganville, Georgia 30052
We will compile all the submissions into a scrapbook (or two) and add a little love from Forks over Stephenie Meyer Day Weekend. We will then send our books to Stephenie Meyer herself! You do not have to be attending to participate; you just have to love Twilight! We look forward to seeing your submissions, Twihards, and thank you from all of us!

Below is an excerpt:
Do you have an eye obsession? In both Twilight and The Host, your characters end up with glowy eyes.
I don’t know! It seems to come out a lot, right? I don’t consciously do that, so I must really be into eyes. My brother’s an optometrist, so I pick up on that. But by the time they had to wear the really awful contacts, everybody’s miserable, and it’s my fault. Although, in this, in The Host, it’s not quite my fault. In the book, it’s not as obvious, which would make it easier for the aliens to invade. It’s only when you shine a light at them that you get an odd reflection, and you wouldn’t know otherwise. But Andrew [Niccol, the director] wanted something very pronounced, so it’s his fault. And it was hard, with the dust storms in the desert. We had lens techs out there constantly putting drops in their eyes, and it slows production down. We did that with Twilight, so many years of contacts and pain, crying and anguish. You think you would learn!
ET has posted a new clip from The Host based on Stephenie Meyer’s book.
