Next Fandom YouTube Chat Set for June 8

The Fansite Ops who have been meeting regularly to talk about Midnight Sun and fandom in general have decided to meet next Monday June 8 to talk about fancamp and movie releases! If you have questions you would like for us to answer, drop it below or contact us on twitter!  We we will meet at our regular time 8:00 EST and 5:00 PT on the Lexicon’s YouTube channel!

Stephenie Meyer’s Letter to Fans

Stephenie Meyer has updated her website with a letter to her fans and a bit of a teaser!

Stephenie writes, “These are tip-in pages, which will be bound into new copies of Midnight Sun, and I just signed sixteen thousand of them. I hope you’re able to get a copy. Barnes and Noble has sold out, but there should still be some available at Books-A-Million. As more become available from other venders, we’ll update you here.

Thanks again for being awesome, and check back here on June 2nd for the first little breadcrumb of fun leading up to the release on August 4th. “

This confirms for everyone that if you order a signed copy from Books a Million or Barnes and Noble that it will be a true signature and not a stamp. The page will be added to the finished book after it goes to print. 

So… what do you think the breadcrumb of fun she is hinting at could be? Leave us a comment with you ideas!

 

 

Pre-Order a Signed Copy of Midnight Sun!

Midnight Sun CoverBarnes and Noble is allowing fans to pre-order a signed hard back copy of Midnight Sun. The book with Stephenie’s signature inside is selling for $27.99 plus shipping and handling. They offer a regular version of the book for $19.99 plus shipping and handling.  Follow this link to pre-order your copy today!

Comparatively, Amazon is running their pro-order for the hardback book at $17.45 where Prime members wouldn’t pay shipping.  

Books A Million is selling the book at $18.19 plus shipping and handling. 

Target’s pre-order is listed at $22.39 plus shipping and handling.

Barnes and Noble, Target, and Books A Million do allow for in store pick up in some locations, which would save you on shipping. So if you are looking for the least expensive way to order Midnight Sun, do it through Amazon. Of course, you might have to wait a day for it to actually arrive at your house. If you want the least expensive way to get the book in your hands as fast as possible, Books A Million with in store pick up is the way to go.  But if you want the signature, at this point in time, the only place to get it is through Barnes and Noble.  

As an FYI – In the past, Stephenie has done a few book signings for a book release usually in New York and LA as well as two or three other locations.  Admission to these events usually requires you to purchase a book from which ever book seller is sponsoring the event.  With the pandemic and so many places with stay-at-home orders, we have no idea if this is going to be possible. If you absolutely want a signed copy, (and who doesn’t???) I would order from Barnes and Noble because there is no promise that she will do book signings in person. 

Also, we’re heard from a few of you that international orders are being blocked because of the pandemic. We will let you know if this changes or if signed copies are available outside of the United States. 

Thanks to @Twilightersdrm for the heads up!

Fansite Chat about Midnight Sun

We’re getting the band back together! Several of the fansite ops from days of yore have been chatting behind the scenes about the Midnight Sun news and we thought it would be fun to bring it out into the open! Monday May 11 at 8:00 EST 5:00 PT time, we will host a live stream event on the Lexicon’s YouTube channel for you to tune into, watch, and even ask questions. We will have a direct link for you later today. https://www.youtube.com/user/TwilightLexicon/  (Yes, we realized we’ve updated this link like three times…isn’t figuring out the technology fun when you haven’t done it everyday for 8 years? Anyway…we’ve got it down now. Hope you all can join us.)

Alphie and Pel (Lori and Laura) from the Lexicon will both be there as will Kallie from Twilight Series Theories, OhMyCarlisle (Amy) from Page to Premiere, Kara O from Twilight Moms, and Tashopolis (Natasha) from Page to Premiere.

Fans React to Midnight Sun Release

The Twilight Fandom was one of the first true social media fandoms, so it’s only fitting that fans would react to the Midnight Sun release on various social media platforms with hilarious and creative memes.  

POP BUZZ has a page of memes focused on Robert Pattinson reacting to the news. 

BuzzFeed also shared a host of great memes.  

We asked our twitter followers to send in their favorite memes related to the release of Midnight Sun. Here are a few of our favorites! 

Hillywood Revisiting Twilight Parodies May 8, 2020

Hannah and Hilly will be joined by Drew Lorentz who played Jasper Hale in all of their parody films. Fans can also tune in on Spotify and iTunes.   

Sounds like a great time to go back and watch all the Hillywood Twilight Parodies!

 

Stephenie Meyer’s Message on GMA

Stephenie Meyer shared a video message about the release of Midnight Sun on Good Morning America this morning.  If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look!  It’s good to see Stephenie again.

She says, “It’s a crazy time right now and I wasn’t sure if this was the right time to put this book out, but some of you have been waiting for just so, so long. It didn’t seem fair to make you wait anymore. Sorry about the bad timing. Hopefully this book can be a distraction from the real world.” 

Fans everywhere are saying thank you!!
