Stephenie Meyer Tells Variety She is “Over” Twilight

Power_Authors_Stephenie_MeyerWhile doing press for Austenland, Stephenie Meyer talked to Variety about being a producer, her experiences with Austenland, and the pressure she has felt over the years.  But the comment that will really stand out to Twilight fans is what she had to say about the franchise that started it all.    

DM: What about a return to “Twilight?”

SM: I get further away every day. I am so over it. For me, it’s not a happy place to be.

DM: Is the door completely closed on that?

SM: Not completely. What I would probably do is three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died. I’m interested in spending time in other worlds, like Middle-Earth.

We’re interested in your thoughts.  How do you feel about this?  Does it change anything for you as a fan?

Tinsel Korey, IKO, and Cider Sky to headline Stephenie Meyer Day Events

Those of you who have gone to Stephenie Meyer Day over the years, know that each year they add something new.  This year, Forever in Forks (the same people who brought you the amazing Breaking Dawn 2 party at least year’s premiere in Los Angeles) have some super guests lined up. Proceeds are going to charity.  We personally know the organizer, Sharon, and we can attest to the quality of the events that she has done in the past. They sent over the following press release

 

 In addition to vampires, werewolves, and TWILIGHT fans from all over the world, Stephenie Meyer Day 2013 will now be hosting an acoustic concert at the Forever in Forks party, featuring TWILIGHT soundtrack artists Cider Sky and Iko, as well as actress Tinsel Korey, who plays Emily Young in the saga. The 2013 Forever in Forks party will take place during Stephenie Meyer Day weekend, which runs Sept. 12-15. 

“The music in the TWILIGHT films played an enormous part in bringing the saga to life, and we’re thrilled to offer fans the opportunity to hear Cider Sky and Iko perform their hits live,” said Sharon Lottes, founder and event planner of Forever in Forks. “And Tinsel Korey is a talented musician in addition to her wonderful portrayal of Emily Young – so we’re proud to offer fans a further look at her musical endeavors.” 

The Forever in Forks party is being held at The Elks Lodge on Saturday, Sept. 14 from 6 p.m. – midnight. The party will also feature a buffet dinner catered by Self Catering of Forks; an open bar; free photo booths; and a silent auction and raffle of signed TWILIGHT merchandise. While Forever in Forks can’t confirm the attendance of additional celebrity guests at this time, the Olympic Coven, a group of TWILIGHT lookalikes, will be on hand for photo opportunities and to interact with guests.  

“As an event, Stephenie Meyer Day grows in size and scope every year, and we love to be able to offer fans new and unique experiences,” said Staci Chastain, organizer of Stephenie Meyer Day 2013. “A party like the one Forever in Forks is offering has never been done before at our event – and it’s even better that it’s all benefiting a great cause.”

All proceeds from the Forever in Forks party will benefit Stand Up 2 Cancer, a charitable program established by media, entertainment and philanthropic leaders who have been affected by cancer. For $200, fans gain access to all of the Forever in Forks events during Stephenie Meyer Day weekend, which includes a catered welcome breakfast at Tillicum Park and picnic at First Beach on Friday; viewings of BREAKING DAWN: PART I and II on Saturday morning; entrance to the Forever in Forks party on Saturday evening; and a catered farewell breakfast at Tillicum Park on Sunday. For $125, fans can purchase a ticket solely to the Forever in Forks party.
