From Jenny a Borders UK employee,
I work at a Borders store in the UK, and I am trying to organise a Breaking Dawn/Twilight day on the 2nd August, at our store. We have been told that any events will have to be store organised, as not all stores are doing anything for the release.
We have also been informed today that there can be no BD midnight release parties in the UK, as we are not legally allowed to sell the book until 4.01am, due to embargo laws (and something to do with the US release being at 12.01am).
My manager has said, however, that we can open our store an hour early, and hold events through-out the day, as long as we can generate some interest. I know how popular Stephenie is in our store and locally, as she is pretty much our biggest selling author at the moment. But, I think my manager will need proof.
Would anyone be interested in a Breaking Dawn release day? I need some evidence (ie. print-out of comments etc…) to show that it would be a worthwile event for us.
I work at Borders in Stockport, which is close to Manchester, in the UK. I REALLY want to do something on the release day (as you can probably tell, I’m a crazy obsessed Twilight fan), and thought I’d ask you for help as you are the leading Twilight site, and have a lot of UK visitors.
Well UK Twilighters? Are you interested?
Edit: Jenny has created a facebook account for those interested in the release party.
