10 Fans From Around the World Get to Meet Stephenie Meyer

This Press release just in from Little Brown

LITTLE, BROWN BOOKS FOR YOUNG READERS

TO HOST AN INTIMATE GATHERING OF

TWILIGHT FANS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

TO MEET STEPHENIE MEYER

TWILIGHT INTERNATIONAL FAN EVENT

TO CELEBRATE UPCOMING RELEASE OF

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: THE OFFICIAL ILLUSTRATED GUIDE

US/CANADIAN FAN SWEEPSTAKES ON THETWILIGHTSAGA.COM

Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, a division of Hachette Book Group, will host a special International Fan Event, featuring Twilight fans from around the world.  Ten fans will be chosen to have a once-in-a-lifetime intimate meeting with international bestselling author Stephenie Meyer.  The event coincides with the upcoming release of The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide (April 12, 2011; $24.99).

Little, Brown is partnering with the Twilight Saga publishers in Brazil, China, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Taiwan and the United Kingdom to bring together each country’s respective Twilight fan.  The fan selected from each country will receive an advance copy of The Official Illustrated Guide and get to talk extensively with Meyer, who will answer their Twilight-related questions.

“The one thing I miss most about my first book tour was the chance I had then to spend quality time with my readers,” said Meyer.  “At an event with just ten or twenty people, I was able to get to know everyone a little bit.  I could also more effectively answer each person’s questions.  I’m so excited to have that opportunity again, and to get to spend time with fans from many different places and backgrounds.”

“We receive hundreds of travel requests for Stephenie from our foreign publishing partners every year,” said Megan Tingley, Senior Vice President and Publisher of Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.  “Since it is physically impossible for one author to be in so many places, we thought this would be a great way to bring some fans to her.”

The Official Rules for the sweepstakes to select the fan from the United States (as well as one from Canada), including entry details and eligibility requirements, can be found on TheTwilightSaga.com.

Due to the intimate nature of this event, details regarding the location and timing are being kept confidential.  Photos and additional details will be distributed upon the event’s conclusion.

The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide provides readers with exclusive new material and everything they need to further explore the unforgettable world Stephenie Meyer created in Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn and The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner.  The Guide also includes character profiles, outtakes, a conversation with Meyer, genealogical charts, maps, extensive cross-references, and much more.  Originally announced as “The Official Guide,” The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide includes illustrations from several artists, including Young Kim, the illustrator behind the #1 New York Times bestselling Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1.

In five years, Stephenie Meyer has become a worldwide publishing phenomenon.  The Twilight Saga’s translation rights have been sold in nearly 50 countries and 116 million copies have been sold worldwide.

  1. HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!
    A dream come true! Hhhhhiiiiiii!

  2. man that really blows… norway never gets to join in on the fun! :((

  3. I honestly WISH TO WIN THIS ! I rather meet Stephenie then Rob, Kristen or Taylor.

    • Me too! Its always only been about her, I adore those characters, but its her! Is it just for young people? I’m old and I wish they would create something for the older fans too. I don’t feel a bit foolish loving these books so much, or being such a huge fan.

      • I’m 30 and going to enter. Not necessarily “young” or “old!” But what a fantastic opportunity! My husband even joked that he would go as my guest if I won…I’m sure that would be a first! =)

  4. Definitely entering!

    When will we be able to read the Lex’s review of the Illustrated Guide?

    • Twilight_News says:

      We won’t review a book (we never have since we started) but we put up a factual thread on what books contain and let fans submit their reviews.

  5. Omg, I’ll do anything to win. Seriously, I’m like the biggest twilight fan ever. I know it sounds cheesy but it literally changed my life!
    Team Twilight haha.
    Waiting for more details about Germany, (:
    Ahahha I wanna win! :D

  6. Gigi Cullen says:

    Yep. Its all about “The Stephanie”. Love love love to mean the brains behind it all. I hope there is a book tour with the release for those fans who do not win so we can still meet her, even for a brief minute.

  7. Twilight dreamers says:

    SUCH A DREAM! Writting my card out now….i have so many questions! I love events like this because the questions can really dig deep and give you new views on the series! So cool!
