USA Today Covers the International Fan Winners and Stephenie Meyer

The winners of the international meet Stephenie Meyer contest met with her over the weekend and USA Today was there.  They discussed the books and movies and more. This is one of those DON’T MISS IT articles folks! Read it all!

Some highlights:

•On the illustrated guide: “My favorite part is the vampire histories. There’s a lot there that’s new. Alice’s (Cullen) back story is one no one has known until now. And I think fans will be surprised at how much fun (Cullen nemesis) Victoria’s story is.”

•On whether she’ll ever write more books about Edward and Bella: “The story’s already been told, and I doubt I’ll ever write another series based on the same characters.”

•On the possibility she’d ever finish Midnight Sun, a Twilight novel told from Edward’s viewpoint that she nixed when parts of it were leaked online in 2008: “I’m hoping to do it someday because I know that’s what people want. No matter what book I put out from here to eternity they’ll want Midnight Sun, but I’m just not writing about vampires right now.


Some mysteries remain
One question she won’t answer: whether the werewolf/shape shifter Jacob and Renesmee, the human/vampire hybrid child of Edward and Bella, could ever have children. (Jacob is a teenager, but baby Renesmee is aging at an accelerated rate.) “That is a question I’m reserving the right not to answer, because there is a chance I’ll go back to their story.”

  1. How do I get your podcast?

  2. Wonderful interview! Been waiting quite a while to hear some new news or an update from Madame Meyer. Lots of nice, juicy tid bits in there, and looking forward to the next twilight films, the as yet un-named future books, she has cookin’, and…especially, most especially, rooting for Jacob and Reneesme’s story!

    Think about it! Jacob…NOW wants to date (ok, yes imprinted, take it a step at a time) Edward’s daughter! LOL, trouble waiting to happen!

  3. Great interview and story. It’s nice to get updates from the great Mrs. Meyer.
    Excited to hear where she thinks the first movie will end…just where I thought it would! It’s the perfect place for a “too be continued”.
    Can’t wait to see it 🙂

  4. I also thought this was a great interview ! A girl with a bow and sword has been written but not by Stephenie Meyer which should be good.

  5. hi i really really cannot wait for midnight sun, and for her to go back to jacob and renessame would be brilliant.

  6. Personally not nearly as interested in Jacob/Renesmee as in Midnight Sun. I just never could gain a genuine affinity for Jacob’s character…

  7. Wow! That was a great interview and she answered alot of the questions and concerns the fans had been worrying about. I’m pleased to hear that Bella’s wedding gown is vintage,but with an edge to it. It kind of falls into how Alice described the dress in Eclipse,when she first showed it to Bella. Speaking of Alice,I liked hearing that we’ll get her full backstory in the encyclopedia as well as Victoria’s. The villians in the saga were only seen as that and now we’ll get a richer understanding of what makes them tick. I hope she gets to complete Midnight Sun and I’m interested in her upcoming fantasy novel she’s writing. Sounds interesting. Loved hearing that BD part 1 will end with Bella’s eyes opening and we will see they are red. That’s general idea for now and in my opinion,the best place to end part 1. I’m glad these fans got to meet her and asked the most buring questions,that have been hot topics for a long time. Thanks USA Today!

  8. I’d love to read Midnight Sun, but honestly, I just want more Stephenie Meyer books to read! Hearing that she’s working on things and has ideas for more stories is enough to make me happy.

    And yes, please, to a Jacob and Renesmee story. There’s a ton of potential there, as well as a chance to see characters we know and love from a different perspective.
