Stephenie is Alive and Well

So yesterday the rumor mill was stirring up saying Stephenie Meyer was dead, well she’s not.

Her site was updated with the following message:

Hey everybody. I just received a call from Stephenie and she wanted me to let everyone know that, contrary to some rumors that have recently started circulating, she is alive and well.

Have a great day.

Rumors, rumors, rumors!!! Do people have nothing better to do.

Kaleb, The Twilight Guy, made a little music video about the subject!!!

Stephenie Meyer Interview with Andrew Freund

Plagiarism suit against Stephenie Dismissed

stephenie-meyer-090

Author Jordan Scott claimed Stephenie Meyer plagiarized parts of her Breaking Dawn book from Scott’s book The Nocturne. Well the case has been dismissed.

Meyer’s publisher, Hachette Book Group, released the following statement:

“In his ruling, [Judge Otis D. Wright II] stated that the two works have little in common and that the ‘characters in the two works are vastly different.’ The decision admonishes Scott for ‘the deceptive presentation of the alleged similarities’ and notes that she ‘has twice manipulated aspects of the subject works in order to create the appearance of similarity.’ While an attempt to ride on someone else’s success may not be surprising, it is encouraging that the courts and the public are not so easily misled. This judgment confirms what we have known all along — Breaking Dawn is a wholly original work by Stephenie Meyer and this was a frivolous lawsuit brought for the purposes of publicizing the plaintiff’s personal publishing aspirations. Hachette Book Group and Stephenie Meyer are pleased to be able to put this case behind us.”

Well duh!!! We all know Stephenie didn’t plagiarize!!

Stephenie updates site with answers to Fan Questions

Stephenie Meyer has updated her site with answers to questions submitted by fans from TheTwilightSaga.com.

Read all the questions and answers on Stephenie’s site here.

Here is an excerpt:

After seeing Twilight the movie you mentioned that you wish you had thought of Bella catching a glimpse of Edward watching her sleep and thinking it was only a dream. Are there any new moments in the New Moon movie that you thought…I wish I had thought of that? Miss having you around the fandom, Nicole B. (Cocoa) Crestwood, KY

Hey Cocoa! I miss you guys, too! Hope you’re well!

New Moon stays closer to the novel, so there aren’t a lot of scenes that aren’t closely related to the book. I am a little sad that my action movie—Crosshairs—is so generically titled. I like the name of the action movie they used for the film (they couldn’t use Crosshairs because there is a movie named Crosshairs somewhere out there). It makes me laugh every time Kristen says it.

Also (and I don’t consider this a spoiler because you’ve seen the trailers) there is a bit of a fight sequence in the Volturi tower now that isn’t there in the book. At first, I had some resistance to this idea because in my mythology, if you start a fight with the Volturi, your story ends right there. It would have been kind of a bummer to have Edward, Bella, and Alice slaughtered in Volterra and no happy reunion scene (and no Eclipse or Breaking Dawn). But I worked with Melissa Rosenberg (the screen writer) and Summit until we came up with a solution that made sense with the story but also gave them the visual action they needed. And now that it’s all put together and beautiful, I love it and kind of wish Felix had gotten his moment in the book.

Stephenie Meyer Female Force Comic Book

1

The L.A. Times has an article on Stephenie Meyer’s Female Force Comic Book. In the article we get a look at another page from the comic.

You can read the entire article here.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

The book also includes the history of Forks, Wash., — the town where her stories take place. The addendum was informative and actually a nice bit of trivia for Twihards: Did you know that the city of Forks was almost destroyed by a fire in 1951? Makes you wonder if a vampire-werewolf skirmish spilled out into the public…or not.

Check out one of my previous posts here to see more pages from the comic.

The Host to be a movie

1bs

Stephenie Meyer has posted the following information on her official website:

I’m so excited to be working with Nick Weschler, and Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz to bring The Host to a visual format. They’ve all been a dream to work with, so lovely and collaborative, and I feel like we’re in a really good place to make a great movie together. And then to have Andrew Niccol writing and directing? Truly awesome. If you’ve never seen Gattaca, go watch it now. One of my favorite movies of all time. It’s such a great example of character driven science fiction, which is ideal for The Host, no? I’m having an absolute blast imagining different dream casts, which I would post if people didn’t take my silly blogs so seriously these days. I’m looking forward to seeing the cast lists you come up with in the fansite forums, and if any of them match mine.

So, very exciting. Yay Host!

XO
Steph

Are you excited?

Variety also has an article about it which you can read here.

Thanks to everyone who emailed!
