Fansites Have Lunch With Stephenie Meyer

stephenieMeyerHeadshot2The websites Twilight Source, Twilight Series Theories, TwiFans, and Letters to Twilight spent a 4 hour lunch with Stephenie Meyer yesterday. They have tons and tons of information, some of which they can’t share until after the movie comes out so it doesn’t spoil the movie,but they can release some tidbits starting next week.

We talked to Kallie, from Twilight Series Theories, after the meeting. Kallie and her sister, Kassie, run Twilight Series Theories and are two of the coolest Texan ladies you ever want to meet! Kallie has been our broadcast buddy at the New Moon red carpet and she will be our broadcast buddy again for Eclipse.

Kallie said, “It was wonderful, fantastic, it was the chance of a lifetime. Stephenie is so down to earth. All the fans will love the information. We can’t wait to share.”

Kallie and Kassie have plans to put some of the material into their podcast as well as have transcripts.

Matt Britton from Twilight Source said via Twitter. “NEWS: Imprint LIVE: Saturday, June 19th at 8 PM ET to talk about our meeting with Stephenie!

Alison and Kim from Twifans summed things up here releasing the questions that they asked but not the answers:

“Here’s a little teaser of the questions (Alison & Kim) asked Stephenie Meyer during our 4 hour Q & A. Some questions are Bree Tanner spoilers so we’re not going to post those in this teaser:

1. What rule did Bree actually break according to the Volturi? (Fan question credit to – jencwu)

2. When will The Official Twilight Guide be released?

3. What do you think about Fan Fiction?

4. How do you feel about creating a fictional character all men are measured against?

5. Edward’s movie Volvo (hatch back & mom mobile) &is different then the book Volvo, what do you think about this?

6. Based on the clips, Hot Angry Edward seems to be a fan favorite. Why do u think the fans seem to be so excited about this?

7. In the book Eclipse Bella jumps between Edward & Jacob in the tent scene to stop them from fighting. If Bella hadn’t done that, our members want to know who would win – Edward or Jacob?

8. During the motorcycle scene in the parking lot Bella leaves Edward & rides off with Jacob. Our members don’t think book Bella would ever treat Edward like that, what’s your opinion?

9. What made you put your producer hat on for Breaking Dawn & what will you bring to the table?

10. Do you have a message for the fans?

These are just questions. Each of the 4 fansites ( Letters 2 Twilight, Twilight Source & Twilight Series Theories) asked their own great questions so there’s a lot more info coming your way. We’ll be posting a little more on Monday but can’t post anything Eclipse movie related until after the is released. Stay tuned! “

Letters to Twilight stated: “We have so much to share. SO.MUCH.TO.SHARE. We interviewed Stephenie Meyer yesterday. No, scratch that- we hung out with Stephenie Meyer yesterday for four hours. Yes. You heard that. FOUR HOURS. We have amazing photos (We’re pretty sure the photographer got some good ones of us stuffing strawberries in our faces & feeding each other grapes) and H-O-U-R-S of conversations to pour over.”

Four Fansites to Interview Stephenie Meyer


Letters to Twilight


Twilight Series Theories

Twilight Source

They found out today that they are going to get to interview Stephenie Meyer. Here’s how the news was broken on Stephenie’s site:

“Hey guys,

I want to do something different with publicity for this movie release. For Twilight, I did the normal press junket, for New Moon I got to go on Oprah. Both of these were fun, exciting experiences. However, they both had the same drawback—the interviews were designed for a very broad audience, and because of that, most of the questions were about things you guys have known the answers to for years. I feel like all of the basic questions have been answered, and for Eclipse I want to focus on the more specific questions of the readers. To accomplish that, I’m hosting my own mini-junket with a few fansites. It will be held on Friday, June 18th, the week before the L.A. premiere.

Unfortunately, I can’t talk to every single site, and I want to keep this as low key and enjoyable as possible. So I put all the U.S. fansites in a hat (for logistical reasons, we had to keep this in the country) and drew out four names.

The names I drew were:

Each of these sites is invited to send two members of their staff (or one member and a guest) to our fan-centric mini-junket. You will be contacted shortly by my assistant, who will give you all the specific information. In the event that any of the sites is unable to send representatives, I’ve already drawn four back up sites, which I will post if it becomes necessary.

I’ll answer all of your questions (and your readers questions, if you want to poll them) about the Eclipse Movie, and the Bree story, as well, which will have been out for a few weeks by then. We’ll have lunch, hang out, and hopefully have a fantastic time. I hope you all can make it!”

What DVD Should I Buy?

Well we were all set to go and write up a DVD comparison shopping guide, but our friends over at Twilight Series Theories went and did one. No point in reinventing the wheel here. So check out their write-up and while you are at it, check out their podcast!

New Moon 22 March 2010 Blu-ray 2D

So which DVD do you think you are going to buy?

The Borders Comic Con Podcast

We had a blast at the Borders podcast. Be My Escape acted as behind the scenes help doling out prizes while Pel sat on the panel.

Pel was able to do a trivia game with some hard questions apparently, and then she followed up on a panel discussing what’s in the upcoming movie.

Kallie and Kassie & Andrew and Matt are pros when it comes to podcasting.  They have it down and know how to make it an interesting show.  Make sure you check out both the Twilight Source/Imprint and Twilight Series Theories sites.

A huge thank you to Borders media, mangement, and store manager, Carlos, and staff for making it happen.

Twilight Series Theories: Twilight Experience

We were at the Twilight Experience with Kallie and Kassie of Twilight Series Theories. They just launched their photo recap of the event.

We think they described it really well when they said:

“There were 2,500 fans attending, and you can imagine how excited each and every one of us was. It was a huge surprise to see so many cast members at the theater. The first group of actors came out to greet the fans included Billy Burke, Anna Kendrick, Christian Serratos and Michael Welch. No one expected for Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Kiowa Gordon and Noot Seer to join them. After several minutes of waving and picture-taking Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson made their way to the red carpet as well. They were greeted with screams as well as tears from overwhelmed fans! We made sure to take advantage of the photo op, then jumped in the line that was eight blocks long!”
