Sneak Peek at The Official Illustrated Guide: James’ Bio

We just got this from Little Brown.  It’s a sneak peek at how the guide will look when it hits stores next week.  You can see the art work for James as well as the start of his personal bio.  Just this alone is loaded with information that we have never known before now.  If this is how much extra information we can get on a character who plays a supporting role in one book, think of how much extra information we will end up having about the other characters!

So what do you think?  Does the art work and information make you that much more excited for the release of the guide?  Let us know in the comments!

  8. Oh my god, oh my god, OH MY GOD!!!

    I really think that if they keep offering sneak peeks at the guide, I’m going to burst my blood vessels out of sheer excitement. This one page is so exciting, it’s killing me!

    I don’t think I can wait until Tuesday 🙁

    Now this is even better than the Bella illustrations – the illustrations are lovely but I can see I’m going to be blown away by the text! B&N better be prepared … wonder what time they open that day ….

  15. Um I think amazon screwed up cause I got my copy on the 5th so I’ve been reading it. Ps if you think this is alot of info wait until you read alice

    • How did you luck out? Wow!

    • Twilight_News says

      We appreciate the information and that you didn’t give out specifics. Please continue not to give out further info so people can be surprised.

    • Someone actually gave out the details of that and spoiled me about Alice ! So thank you for not doing that to others.

    OME.! IM SO EXCITED! CAN’T WAIT. 😀 I live in Philippines so I have to wait ’till the release of the Illustrated Guide here in our country. 😀

  17. I love all this new info we get ! And it’s not much but for us fans it’s a a lot. I’m so excited !!

  18. Thanks, Little Brown!

    “We so excited!”

  19. Mary Masen says

    I am SO super-excited!! even though i will have to wait a little bit more until it is published in Europe. BUT I bet $100.000 that it is gonna worth the waiting… 😉

  20. If that’s what we get for James, I can’t wait to see what we get for characters like the Cullen’s, the Volturi and the Pack.

  21. Wow. No wonder it took so long to get that book out and that it kept getting pushed back. Awesome! Can’t wait.

  22. “when he met a…” a WHAT?! haha, just kidding. this is so cool! can’t wait for the release!

  23. I am so excited!!! I’ve refrained from buying any of the other “offical guide” books hoping that Stephenie would publish one herself and I am so glad that I have waited….Only a couple more daysto go!!!

  24. I’m excited about this new book and the extended incited that it will provide about the characters. I’m especially curious to see if we will learn more about Alice’s history.


  26. Awesome! Not only does it stoke my anticipation for the Guide, it makes me more impatient for a second graphic novel. Young Kim did a great job, and I look forward to seeing all of the books adapted in that format.

  27. After what Stephenie mentioned in her interview with the lucky fans that interviewed her,I’m mostly anxious to see Victoria’s backstory. She said the fans will be very surprised by what we learn about Victoria and get a whole new perspective in the character. Seeing the backstory on James is quite interesting and I would have never guess he has been a vampire for that long. Although if you read the first novel,there are subtle hints that allude to he’s a vampire that has a great deal of age and knowledge. Of course his arrogance that the Cullens wouldn’t arrive in time to save Bella,was his greatest downfall. Can’t wait to read the other character’s bios and find out more about our favorite characters from the series. I’m going to Walmart on Tuesday as soon as I can!
