Special Edition Eclipse Pre-Order

 We are now just 2 weeks away from the release of the Special Edition Eclipse!  This special edition will include not one, but two exclusive tee shirt transfers, the book jacket will unfold to reveal the long awaited cover for Breaking Dawn, and the first chapter of Breaking Dawn will be included in the back of the book! 

Don’t miss its release May 31st, Pre-order today.

While in the past, Stephenie has been allowed to post the first chapter on her website, she is not expecting to be allowed to do that this time around.  If she is allowed to do so, it will most likely not be posted until a week or two before Breaking Dawns release on August 2nd. 

The cover of Breaking Dawn, however, will be on her website as well as many book sellers shortly there after.

    Do we know if they are going to have signed copies at changing hands? is that what the place is called?

    We are finding out that answer for you now.  We will edit the post to add the answer when we know.  ~Cocoa

  2. awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. MoonStarWithWings says:

    Oh, that sucks =[
    I don’t have the money to buy another copy of Eclipse just for the Breaking Dawn stuff!
    But I guess the cover art will be on the net…
    Still… I wanted to read it!


  4. Will all the extra stuff like, the poster and shirt transfers or whatever be included in the books no matter where we order them? Because i’ve been looking at other places to order them and they give out discriptions of what will be in the product but they didn’t include the shirts in there with the product discription. Does that mean it’s not going to be in there?

    As long as it is the special edition of Eclipse it will have those items in it.  And just to note, they are T-shirt iron ons.  Not actual t-shirts.  ~Cocoa

  5. If she doesnt post it on her website, someone else will do so on another website. It’s as simple as that. Sorry, but I don’t see how buying another copy of Eclipse to read a new chapter of Breaking Dawn is of any use.

    If someone does do that they will be subject to coywrite violation and can be prosecuted by the law.  Not a risk I would recomend any website take…case inpoint see what happend to the violators of the Harry Potter copywrite.  You are more then welcome not to buy the book and wait for the fourth one.  However there are many who would like to purchase it.  ~Cocoa

  6. Does anyone know if or when it is released in the UK?

  7. Faktririjekt says:

    I don’t have enough money, either…and I wouldn’t buy it if I did, because I’d rather read the first chapter of Breaking Dawn in…Breaking Dawn – I’d die if I couldn’t read the second right after. I’m going to die anyways, though…I’ll have to stay away from the Lexicon until I do read it…

  8. twilightislife says:

    WOW, cant wait to see the cover!!!!!!!! It will probably be made exceptionally cleverly and include an unexpected image with an unexpected meaning…..as usual!

  9. twilightislife says:

    The BD cover, i mean….sorry

  10. THT (Twi- Hard- Teen) says:

    Does any one know where i can buy it in Italy?

  11. t shirt transfersssssssssss!!!!!!

  12. I don’t think I’ll buy it either. The cover will be all over the internet, though I’m not too sure about the first chapter. It’s a shame she won’t be able to post it on her site …

  13. christina says:

    Whoop Whoop! ๐Ÿ˜€ I already have eclipse in hardcover…but I’ll probably buy it anyway! We shall see. yayy for t-shirt transfers, cover of breaking dawn, and first chapter of breaking dawn!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  14. where can i buy it in the uk

  15. To all you people worrying about how much it costs: I have a way I call the…RECYCLE method. Basically, buy the book, read it, and when you’re done (assuming there’s no drool all over it) sell it to your friendly neighborhood used book store. You can do this as many times as you like – and you’re not losing any money! *winkwink*

    XD Yes, I really do this. Yes, I KNOW I have no life. No need to remind me.

  16. Kelsieeee says:

    Well my Eclipse copy is a bit wrecked, so a new one is needed! ๐Ÿ˜€

    FOR EVERYONE IN THE UK, Waterstones doesn’t have it listed on their website, so it’s my guess that they aren’t selling it.

    Does Changing Hands Book Store ship worldwide?

  17. Ahhhh I can’t wait!!! I’m just going to go to barnes and noble the day it comes out – I hate preordering stuff >.

  18. Sarah (a different one, honest!) says:

    Sarah (the one who doesn’t want to buy Eclipse Superspecialawesomeedition at ALL): Yeah, but at least it looks cool. Me, I have like, three copies of Twilight, four of New Moon, and two of Eclipse. What can I say? I love to see the corrected typos XD

  19. TwilightLover says:

    I can’t wait for breaking dawn!!!! I hope Stephenie can come to Canada:)

  20. thanks for posting this. i have been wondering if it would be posted on her website. too bad it can’t be. i probably end up buying it because i am way too excited to wait. yeah!!!

  21. I can’t wait to see the cover of BD. I bet it’s going to look great like the others. I’m going to buy it because my copy of Eclipse is getting messed up, so I’ll just buy it. I don’t care what my friends say.

  22. I’m not going to buy it, I dont have enough money, I’m saving up to buy The Host. IDEA!!! I wait to buy the Host on May 31, but I’ll sit in Borders and read the first chapter first!!!

  23. Tralally says:

    Just go to the bookstore and read the copy there. No need to purchase. It’d just be the problem of finding one in stock.

  24. Looking 4 My Edward says:

    I’m not allowed to buy Eclipse because I already have one ๐Ÿ™
    I really want to read the first chapter :'(
    This sucks. I really really wish she could post it on her website

  25. Lol, I’m buying it for my friend’s birthday and reading the Breaking Dawn chapter before I give it to her XD

  26. Miss Viet says:

    It’s the first chapter of Breaking Dawn which will be included in the end of the book? I heard it will be the first chapter of Midnight Sun… ?

  27. It is Breaking Dawn. The first chapter of Midnight Sun in on Stephenie’s website.

  28. bear_hugs says:

    That is SOOOOO cool!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. jane's_sister says:

    i don’t like the first-breaking-dawn-chapter-not-online-part. i’ve already bought two redactions of eclipse (the english and the german one) and i really don’t feel like spending money on a third one! it’s so witless to buy a whole book that you already know just for reading maybe 50 pages of another book that will be published about 2 months later.

  30. stephanie says:

    ughhhhhhh….that’s not fair…i already have eclipse:( ๐Ÿ™
    but i want that one…it’s the special edition! ๐Ÿ˜€
    ugh ugh ugh!!!!!

  31. i thought they were actaul t-shirts. hmm?? i don’t care. i am buying it anyways. i need another excuse to buy another copy of eclipse anyways. LOL!! WOO!!

    CAN”T WAIT!!

  32. OMG!! I totally forgot about the special edition!! *feels ashamed*
    Hopefully my mom will let me buy it!!!

  33. No way am I buying another book just for an extra 20 pages. I think it’s kind of manipulative to do that to such a rabid fan base. But I know I’ll be able to get a copy of the BD chapter anyway, without paying $14 or so. That’s what friends are for.

  34. I think its going to be a bestseller again! I already own eclipse but of course am going to buy Special edition!

  35. Hey! Another MTV staffer has entered the Twilight world. But she has some questions about the books (she just finished Twilight and is starting on New Moon). Everyone should try and get over there and answer what you can (or at least encourage her to continue reading.
    It’s at: http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2008/05/19/ten-twilight-questions-for-fans-from-another-hooked-mtv-staffer/
    Also, Film.com has posted a good article about the movie Twilight and the expectations. It’s at:

    Just thought the Lexicon would like to know.

  36. Does anyone know when Amazon starts shipping international orders? Is it at the same time as the US ones, or later? Is it better for Europeans to order from e.g. the UK?

    I’m thinking of pre-ordering the special edition of Eclipse (and of course I’ll pre-order Breaking Dawn!), as I can’t find anything about the release dates in my country, and of course I want to place my order where I’ll get the books as fast as possible… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  37. Nooooo! I was dying to read the chapter and I have absolutely no money at all! Crap!
    Will somebody tell me everythin that happens?
    Buhu. Crying now.

  38. GAH! i thought it was the 21st i was all excited to get it this week and now i have to wait another 2 weeks. ๐Ÿ™

  39. Harryfan says:

    Just go to a bookstore, pick up the special edition, and read it. You don’t have to buy it.

  40. I personally WILL buy another copy. Mostly for the first chapter of BD, but also because anything Stephenie puts out, I will probably purchase/read. I even bought Prom Nights from Hell just because she had a short story in it… not too shabby a book by the way. Exactly what you expect it to be in many ways, her story is definitely unique. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Anyway – cannot wait for 5-31 & 8-2!!!

  41. Im just going to the book store or walmart or something and reading the first chapter. Of course before we waste the gas money going over there I will call the borders guy and make sure there are copies for me to read. Then I will just go in there flip to the back of the book, read it and leave ๐Ÿ˜‰ although it sucks cause i like to read things 3 to 4 times through (especially in Breaking Dawns case) so i’ll just have to read it the first time in the book store then whenever my mom goes to walmart, i’ll find it and read it again.
    Its a total scam to buy the same book twice just for a clip in the back (i mean what twilighter doesn’t have all 3 books as soon as they come out) *sigh* at least we found a loop hole ๐Ÿ˜€

  42. VampGirl says:

    I think I’m just gonna read the first chapter in the store cuz I allready have one so I don’t see the need to buy a new copy. ๐Ÿ™‚

  43. They have to allow her, I mean, I’ve got THREE books of eclipse, one in english, one in spanish and the other one in catalan. I can’t afford another one! PLEASE LET HER POST IT!

  44. dazzled says:

    I have a countdown on my computor for May 31st and my freinds and I are soooo buying like every copy of the special edition!!!!!

  45. I seriously cannot afford a book I basically already have. And I would feel guilty for wasting a tree just for a few pages. I am so upset, I have to read the chapter, I don’t know what to do ๐Ÿ™

  46. fantasma says:

    I have to say, I’m pretty torn. I love all of the stuff that’s included in with the book, but I already have Eclipse. . .and I can’t really afford to buy it all over again =[[

  47. Cassandra says:

    well i wasnt going to buy the special edition since i already have eclipse…but i didnt know that iron on’s would be included in it. so now i HAVE to buy it. and the rest of the books on this huge list that i have to buy are just going to have to wait.

  48. YES!! Ahh i CANT WAIT!!! (and it comes out my graduation day!) good thing I don’t have eclipse yet, i was waiting for the SPECIAL EDITION!!

  49. soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo*gasp*exciteeeeeeeeeeeeed*gasp*

  50. thats my birthday and i cant buy it cause im BROKE:( รƒยญ want it sooo bad though… *sigh*
