They found out today that they are going to get to interview Stephenie Meyer. Here’s how the news was broken on Stephenie’s site:

“Hey guys,

I want to do something different with publicity for this movie release. For Twilight, I did the normal press junket, for New Moon I got to go on Oprah. Both of these were fun, exciting experiences. However, they both had the same drawback—the interviews were designed for a very broad audience, and because of that, most of the questions were about things you guys have known the answers to for years. I feel like all of the basic questions have been answered, and for Eclipse I want to focus on the more specific questions of the readers. To accomplish that, I’m hosting my own mini-junket with a few fansites. It will be held on Friday, June 18th, the week before the L.A. premiere.

Unfortunately, I can’t talk to every single site, and I want to keep this as low key and enjoyable as possible. So I put all the U.S. fansites in a hat (for logistical reasons, we had to keep this in the country) and drew out four names.

The names I drew were:

Each of these sites is invited to send two members of their staff (or one member and a guest) to our fan-centric mini-junket. You will be contacted shortly by my assistant, who will give you all the specific information. In the event that any of the sites is unable to send representatives, I’ve already drawn four back up sites, which I will post if it becomes necessary.

I’ll answer all of your questions (and your readers questions, if you want to poll them) about the Eclipse Movie, and the Bree story, as well, which will have been out for a few weeks by then. We’ll have lunch, hang out, and hopefully have a fantastic time. I hope you all can make it!”

    Proof that Stephenie is still all about us true fans. A classier lady does not exist.

  2. Nice to stephanie do this for fans, But if she REALLY cared for the fans… the people who have made her rich, she’d start work on a legitimate new book for the series.. not a supplement book that the Bree story is….

    • Not fair Neil, this (Bree Tanner story) was already written sitting around in someones office or where ever they keep such things, and I for one (and I’m sure I’m not alone) will take what ever I can get. Stephenie has her hands filled with The Host 2-3 in the series, and other things she’s working on. Steph has said she was burned out on vamps for awhile but not that she would never return to it. Everyone needs breaks, what takes us a day to read authors labor over for months and sometimes years. I understand how badly we all (me, me) want and wish she would concentrate solely on our beloved Cullens but like any artist she has to let out all the things swimming around in her head. Lets give her a chance to do some of the other things and if we don’t whine and moan to much she may just surprise us one of these days. In the mean time we (I) will take whatever she throws my way. I and everyone else would read the next 20 in the series if we could but we have to let her breathe. I know you are just wanting it to continue now, right now, me too, but even we get vacations. lol

        I absolutely agree with you. We fans don’t know what it’s like for her, so it’s easy to sit around feeling like she’s not giving us what we want, but she’s a person too and has to write what she wants.

        I agree with emilypruitt as well, this is completely classy and shows that she really does care about trying to connect to all of the real fans who have supported her books.

        • Jesus Neil, back off! What a terrible thing to say. Just because she’s not writing for your every whim doesn’t mean she doesn’t care about her fans. She doesn’t have to do this mini press junket at all.

          I think she rocks! Can’t wait to read the novella.

          • I totally agree I think it’s really nice of her to do that. And Neil seriously chill out!! You don’t own her!!!! She has other projects.

    • Wow really ? Stephenie not care for her fans ?
      I’m not going to waste my time with your stupidity.

      I know that you’re entitled to your own opinion, but here is mine:

      I myself am a writer, and what we write is never forced. We don’t like to be pushed into a chair and told “write this now.” If there’s no inspiration, we just don’t do it. This is actually for the protection of the reader as well, because when we know we aren’t inspired then we aren’t coming out with our best work for whoever the reader is. We are waiting until we are truly ready to write it.

      I not only respect Stephenie and am truly grateful, but I also completely understand her decision.

      <3 SWITZY LOVE <3

  3. I agree with you emilypruitt – a classier lady does not exist than our own Stephenie. This will really be something to look forward to.

    Congrats to Alison and Twifans.com! Woohoo!

  5. I love Stephenie and this is a great way of doing things. And what lucky sites !!

  6. I would so love to meet Stephenie. She is twilight. I really could care less about meeting Rob or Kristen or Taylor. She is amazing and creative. I would love to tap into her mind.
