Stephenie Meyer v Kölnu

In Knjige,Twilight on 09/03/2008 od Mateja

Stephenie Meyer je zaključila svojo turnejo po Nemčiji. Vienna je za Twilight Lexicon napisala tole poročilo iz Kölna:

When I arrived at the ship (yes,the whole thing took place on a ship, but it didn’t leave the landing) with a friend of mine, there were only like 10 or 15 people waiting. So this was good. I left my friend there to stand in the line while going back to fetch another friend and when I got back there were like…hundreds of people standing in the line. Luckily my friend was still where I left her, so we got in and ended up in the front row. Awesome. We then had to wait for about 30 minutes until Stephenie came on stage with the translator and a German actress. Stephenie read a part from Eclipse (Unhappy Endings, the part where Rosalie tells Bella her story > videos at the bottom) and I went crazy for the first time because that’s one of my favourite parts in the whole book. The German actress then read a part from the German one (the one where Jacob shows up at Forks High School to deliver his message).So when the reading was done we were able to ask questions.
I got hold of the microphone first.
My first question was on why Edward was always doubting the existence of his soul while he was being able to love Bella the way he does.
Stephenie’s answer: It comes all down to your definition of soul. She then explained how for example Carlisle and Edward have very different opinions on the matter and that Bella could not believe that someone so wonderful as Edward could possibly not have a soul. (by the way, I don’t have the answers on tape, so don’t kill me if something is not perfectly complete. I will try not to write down anything she didn’t say and I dare say that my memory is pretty good yet ^^)The second thing I asked was whether she thought Bella and Edward were more like Romeo & Juliet, Heathcliff & Cathy or rather Elizabeth Bennet & Mr. Darcy. Stephenie’s answer: Bella and Edward are a couple of there own. She said that at different times she felt like Jane Eyre or Elizabeth Bennet or Cathy, but then she said that they are probably most like Elizabeth & Mr. Darcy (everybody was like ‘awwwww’ and I said ‘Thank you’ because that was what I had been hoping for Very Happy)
Oh, and I wanted to know whether she had ever read Elizabeth Gaskell’s ‘North and South’. She hasn’t read it yet but said it was on her list of books to read (once she has time to read again Very Happy)Of course there were other questions. Again, I’ll try to wrote down what she said as best as I can.Question: Do the covers have any special meaning to you?
Answer: She said that the first cover they wanted to use for Twilight was horrible and she was like “They can’t do that to my book!” and that she even cried and that they actually listened to her and changed it. She was pretty happy with the apple cover, but said that it involved some problems with something so often associated with Adam and Eve.
She then said that she didn’t get any say on the New Moon cover…and that it didn’t mean anything to her. But they didn’t listen to her when she cried this time.
And then she said that she was very happy with the Eclipse Cover and that the rope kind of presents how there are some things Bella just can’t cut away from her life (like her family, friends and I suppose Jacob especially).Question: Has the cover for Breaking Dawn been chosen already?
Answer: No, but she hopes to have some nice propositions when she gets home from Germany.Question: How did Bella and Jacob fit into one sleeping bag? (everybody was laughing)
Answer: They had to be really close! (never thought of that lol)Question: What do you think about the German cover art?
Answer: She said the German covers where her favourites among the international ones! Haha!Question: Why did you cast Robert Pattinson as Edward.
Answer: (As we all know) She didn’t get any say into who was cast and said she was lucky they even talked to her. (Sounds familiar.) She said that she thought Rob was perfect now that Henry Caville was too old and that she did get the chance to talk to him and was just stunned and thinks he’s the best Edward they could have cast. I know this is old news to most of us but I think we need to spread the Rob love!Question: Which is your favourite character?
Answer: Jacob, Edward, and she’d love to go shopping with Alice. (Old news?)

Most of the other questions where just about things that are commonly known amongst those people who know how to use the www lol.

Um yeah, so just let me say that it was a hell lot of fun. We laughed soo much and Stephenie was lovely and honest as usual. The atmosphere was great and…you know…the translator was a lot of fun to listen to. She was a very nice woman, I know that, because I talked to her twice and she said I was very welcome to ask two questions instead of one…but she made a lot of mistakes and was clearly overchallenged.

Then there was the book signing. Stephenie had promised to sign one book for everybody present and my friend and me were actually the LAST ones in the line. It had been said before that Stephenie was only going to sign ONE book and no photos or anything else. Still, there were some people who lined up again to get her to sign photos and god knows what. Anyway the Carlsen people were already rushing her away…we cried out and said that our books had not been signed and she came back, which was really really awesome because the Carlsen peoople really had no time left because they needed the location. So she signed our books and apologized for not having time to take a picture. Sadly, she didn’t read my t-shirt which listed Bella & Edward on my list of Epic Love Favourites like Elizabeth & Mr. Darcy, Heathcliff & Cathy, Natasha Rostova & Andrei Bolkonsky (you know, in reference to my second question)…but I’m taking a lot of comfort from the fact that I was the last fan who talked to her that night. Very Happy

To sum it all up, I had a wonderful, wonderful day. Stephenie was awesome and it was really cool to see her and to be able to ask her questions and everything. So yay for Stephenie & thank you so much for coming to Germany!

Stephenie Meyer v Berlinu

In Knjige,Twilight on 06/03/2008 od Mateja

Stephenie Meyer nadaljuje svojo turnejo po Nemčiji.

Mabelle se je udeležila srečanja z bralci v Berlinu in o tem za Twilight Lexicon napisala naslednje poročilo:

Title: “Bella is like a delicious cheesecake”

As I arrived at the Kulturkaufhaus Dussmann, dozens of fans had been already waiting.
I underestimated the situation when I thought I’d have enough time to get a good seat one hour before the actual thing started.
Apparently, I should have come at least in the morning. Some fans had been waiting since 12:00… .And now they were waiting to get a glimpse of the creator of their favorite book.

Many of them were sitting on the floor as all the seats were already taken. The hall itself was way too small for this huge amount of people, so many of them were upstairs, looking at the stage on a screen. Fans were screaming and clapping as Stephenie Meyer finally appeared.

“This is really something…”, Stephenie smiled when she saw all her fans. And then she said would stay as long as necessary to get everyone’s copies signed.

After a brief introduction, Stephenie started reading out a part of Eclipse, Rosalie’s part which is her favorite background story. The fans flipped their books open and started reading along.

But we were getting really excited, finally, it was time for the questions, after a German actress read out another part of the German translation “Bis(s) zum Abendrot”. People started asking a lot of questions, most of them about Stephenie’s writing skills, but there were also a few really interesting ones.

Here is a small collection of the most interesting questions (there were a lot!) and Stephenie’s answers:

Will there be a sequel to The Host?
– “I’m already working on the sequel, it’s almost done.”

Is Breaking Dawn really the last book in the Twilight Saga?
– “The 4th book will be last from Bella’s perspective. We’ll see, it’s all about the time. Midnight Sun needs to be done as well. I have so many ideas, but I want to write other stories, too.”

At this point everyone became really excited about Breaking Dawn. And although Stephenie said at the beginning, she would not answer any questions concerning the 4th book, because she wanted everyone to be surprised, she smirked and allowed another question to be answered:

You took your inspiration from Wuthering Heights and Romeo & Juliet.What was your inspiration for Breaking Dawn?
“I basically had two classics. Breaking Dawn is not quite based on them, but they inspired me. I will tell you ONE (everyone started screaming at that point)… it is Midsummer Night’s Dream!

How do you feel about the film cast?
“A lot of fans say ‘Don’t let them ruin the movie’! But I think adaptations are good, too. Just look at Romeo & Juliet. There are so many ways to make a good movie. And of course I want to see the movie as well! I plan on visiting the set soon again. I’m really happy about the cast. And I’m really happy about Rob playing Edward. He fits perfectly!”

And two more questions & answers which I thought were funny:

Jake or Edward?
“Well that is a problem… we have two perfect man here! So I guess a sharing plan needs to be worked out, you need to be flexible (laughs)”

Will Edward stop loving Bella if she was a vampire? (If-questions were actually not allowed, but this one seemed to concern so many fans, Stephenie just had to asnwer this one!) If it’s all about the smell he feels attracted to…
– “You have to look at it this way: To Edward, Bella is like a delicious cheesecake – and no one can resist a delicious cheesecake. It’s why he noticed her the first time. But he truly loves her the way she is. It’s not about the smell, because it’s like they are soulmates.”

Afterwards everyone lined up for the book signing. And everyone had the chance to get their book signed, even those people who had been watching her upstairs.

In total I can say it was a really nice happening. Everyone was very cheerful and said how awesome Stephenie was.

I hope she will come to Berlin soon again! And next time, we will need a hall at least 4 times bigger than this one.

Thank you for coming!

Stephenie Meyer na turneji po Nemčiji

In Knjige,Twilight on 01/03/2008 od Mateja

Stephenie Meyer je v četrtek, 28. februarja, pričela svojo turnejo po Nemčiji. Prva postaja te turneje je bil Hamburg.
Več informacij o turneji!

Poročilo o srečanju s Stephenie v Hamburgu sta pripravili tudi dve uporabnici LJ – isabell16 in jj_jule.

Stephenie Meyer reading in Hamburg
God spoke to us


When we (laura_louisa, jj_jule and isabell16) arrived at the movie theater in Hamburg at around 4pm we – of course – weren’t the first ones there. There were a lot of girls already (of course the majority of people were girl but we saw a boy or two as well) who were waiting at the entrance or sitting on the floor.
We decided that we wanted to sit while waiting and so we sat down and took off our coats to show the shirts we made.

As there came more and more people we got up to stand “in line” (meaning we joined the rest of the crowd). Around 4:45pm they decided to let us in and then the pushing and squeezing began. We three took a hold of each other and tried really hard not to lose each other. With our luck though Laura and Jule both grabbed the same hand of Isi and so the hold between the three of us wasn’t really strong. Isi was pushed away but we soon found each other again.
We found seats in the middle of the theater. It wasn’t that far away from the podium but it wasn’t really close either.

On the podium in front of the movie screen was a table with two chairs behind it plus two lamps and two bottles of water (though they didn’t drink anything all evening). On each side of the screen were red heart-shaped and little black balloon and the German cover of Eclipse was projected onto the screen.

At exactly 5pm Stephenie entered the podium and was welcomed with screams and applause from the audience. Behind her were another young woman and a man who introduced himself as the German publisher. The guy told us a bit about Stephenie’s (or Twilight’s) history with her German publishing company and how most of the men didn’t really think Twilight would be successful. However all woman of the publishing house were very sure that it would be a very successful book indeed. He shortly explained the evening program to us, meaning that Stephenie would read for us and that the audience could ask questions afterwards.

Then he left the podium for another woman who introduced herself as a journalist (we will refer to her as “the weird German woman”). She explained that she would sort of moderate the evening and also translate (definitely the best joke of the evening).
She also talked a bit about Stephenie and her life and then she introduced the woman sitting next to Stephenie as a German actress who would read the German parts.
And then the reading finally began. *yay* *yay* *yay*

First Stephenie explained that she would start with Rosalie’s story because at several signings before Eclipse was published she had been asked about Rosalie’s story. You guys really have no idea what an awesome voice Stephenie has! She did an amazing job with reading and actually seemed to be a part of the book.

The next part was read in German and the actress talked a bit about the happenings before the scene and then she started reading the scene where Jacob comes to the school to warn Edward. She was pretty good too. She really put a lot of effort into the reading and mimicked all the feelings and so on.

After that Stephenie read again, this time Jasper’s story, for she wanted to read the other history in Eclipse. She talked about this as well, saying that – while writing – she was really excited that she could finally tell these histories in Eclipse.

And then again the actress read, now the part where Bella visits Jake again for the first time.

After that the actual reading ended and the weird German woman began with the Questions & Answers part asking three questions herself and then she let the audience ask.

Question and Answers – Stephenie reading Hamburg

1. How did you get the idea to write a love-story about vampires?

Well, I’m not a huge fan of horror novels. I’m kind of a chicken! And I *we can’t understand what she said anymore* I dreamed about vampires and it was such an exciting dream that I just wanted to write it and that was the beginning of chapter 13 of Twilight and since then I have not stopped writing about vampires.

2. You said ‘I wrote it for myself and for mothers thinking of their first unfulfilled love’. What does it mean? Did you remember such an unfulfilled love when you wrote the story?

When I wrote Twilight I wasn’t thinking about any audience besides myself and I think it was a chance for me to go back and relive first love again. You don’t get that more than once. Sometimes you get something better later on but first love is a onetime deal and I wanted to go through all of that terror and passion and fear and happiness that comes through love and that is kind of a rollercoaster ride and it’s amazingly thrilling to ride it.

3. Then I read that you when you write you listen to music. You have your special tunes for example ‘Coldplay’, ‘U2’ and there is another special group ‘Muse’, right? How does it work? How do you write and when do you write because you’re a mother. Do you write at night, during the day or do you turn your music really loud? How does it really work?
Okay, I begin with headphones to I don’t wake the kids up because I write when they’re sleeping. It’s much easier. Uhm… I picked the music I listen to when I write as it fits the mood. When I wrote Twilight I was mostly listening to ‘Linking Park’. It has a very strong beat. It kept the story moving. Because, you know, it has kind of a driving beat to it. And when I was working on New Moon my music was a lot slower and more depressing. And that was when I discovered ‘Muse’ and from then on ‘Muse’ has always been a huge part of my playlist. They’re my very favorite band. With each book that I write I get to discover new bands and let the music sometimes write the scenes. When I was working on Eclipse in the very beginning I first listened to Muse’s ‘hysteria’ and I was listening to that song as my favorite over and over again and as I was listening the scene where Jacob and Bella kissed was choreographed in my head and if weren’t that song I don’t think it would’ve turned out quiet the same way.
(That woman who was translating everything to German was a little weird and didn’t really get it when Stephenie said that she writes at night. So, after Stephenie answered the music question that weird German woman asked again “And when do you write? At night?” and Stephenie answered with a “yeah, when the kids are asleep” and the woman said “Respect!”)

4. Do the actors for the Twilight movie look like you imagined them?

I am really excited about I would say 95% of the actors which I think is a really good margin. Particularly I think they did a great job with Edward and that is the most important. It could’ve been a really bad thing but I had a chance to me Robert Pattinson and actually have a really involved conversation with him about how depressed Edward was in Twilight. And I have to tell you, I know there is a lot of people who didn’t like him right away and there is some who are still holding out for some other actors… uhm… I gotta say I’m not getting this whole Gaspard Ulliel thing, I’m sorry. But, uhm, when I got the chance to talk to him we were having lunch and we could see him walking up the road and his hair was already dyed red and he had that long black coat and you could see the people on the street kinda stopping and looking at him and thinking… and it wasn’t like “who is that?” it was more like “What is that?” *Stephenie says that in a really mesmerized tone* He doesn’t even really look cute. I mean, he looked more like an Angel than a person. And he got such an interesting face and you sit there and talk to him you hardly know what to say. He would say “Why are Carlisle and Edward so close, they aren’t even real family” and I was looking at him saying “what is… what was that again?” *Stephenie does that in a really dreamy expression, kind of swooning* I think that he’s going to be amazing and that the actress who is playing Bella, uhm, you should’ve seen her when we were all together, she was over there and was like *Stephenie shows the way Kristen adored/drooled over Robert* He is perfect, really, you don’t have to need to worry.

5. How did you get the idea of the vampire family? All these characters… do you know somebody like them or are they all fantasy?

It’s 90% fantasy and then, uhm, I didn’t… The Cullens, when I was writing the story, they came to me really naturally I was writing about Edward and Bella and then it just seemed obvious that Edward has a sister named Alice who could see the future and all the rest of them came to me easily and, uhm, I didn’t really think about where they came from until I was doing an interview a couple of years later and the interviewer asked if “Bella’s family is like yours” and I kind of laughed because Bella is an only child with divorced parents and my parents were married for like a hundred and ten years and I have a bunch of brothers and sisters and I said “no, no I come from a big family and we’re really close. We are all very different but we all get along really well” And as I was hearing myself I was thinking “Oh my gosh, we are the Cullens!” That’s where they came from and my dad really is like Carlisle except that he looks a lot greyer. But, so I think the Cullens are based on my big family and the idea that even though we’re all very, very different and sometimes you probably think we’re crazy, underneath it all we’d die for each other.

6. Is it true that there will be a fourth book?

Yes, it is absolutely true. In fact, the fourth book, I’ve finished the rough draft. We’re working on editing and it should be out in the US on August 2nd. So, soon.

7. Edward once said that there was a list of people who like Bella more than she thinks and she’d be surprised who’s on it. Who are those people on the list?

Most of the boys, of course you know about Mike and Tyler and that, and uhm, the one that is on the list that she would be surprised about was the one that was kind of inappropriate and that was the biology teacher Mr. Banner.

8. How tall is Alice?

Alice, I think, is around four nine, four eight… uhm… I don’t know how to work that into meters. *someone screams her size in meters from the back* Okay, she’s one meter and forty-seven centimeters.

9. How long have you written on the first book?

How long did it take me to write it? Uhm… I wrote Twilight in three months. It was over the summer. I was extremely involved in the story. Uhm, the others have both taken a little bit longer because I can’t just write. I, uhm, have to do touring and editing and so it slows me down.

10. Will Jacob play a role in the fourth book?

Oh, I probably should have said this first. I don’t answer anything about the fourth book.

11. What’s your favorite quote? Out of all of the books?

Oh, a favorite quote? Oh, that’s… That’s too hard. I the last book, which should be the most recent, I can’t really remember because my head is all full with book four right now. But I think in book three one of my favorite ones was when Emmett is giving Bella a hard time about her hand. He said “You fall down again, Bella?” and she is like “No, I punched a werewolf in the face, Emmett.”

12. Are you going to stop after the fourth book and the Edward one?

I’m not sure. Right now I am a little bit tired of vampires. I have a lot of other stories and some of them I really like to work on. At the same time, I can’t imagine ever really stopping writing about my vampires and so after midnight sun is done and after I take a little time off I do have some other stories. They won’t be from Bella’s perspective. They will be from other perspectives. Uhm, but I think I will come back to the Cullens eventually.

13. Can vampires have babies?

Uhm, there is all kind of information about that online at the Twilight Lexicon. We’ve had a very long discussion. Uhm, but part of my non-answering questions about the fourth book is that I have been very careful not to answer the even the most hypothetical questions because if I pick and choose to which ones I’d say “oh, that will never be involved in this book” then people would be figuring out the ones I’m not answering. So, even when someone asks me “What happens if a vampire bites a unicorn?” I’m not gonna answer any ‘What happens’ questions.

14. You said you dreamed about the vampires. What exactly did you dream of?

In my dream, they didn’t have names then, but there was this beautiful, sparkly vampire and he was with a girl in a meadow and he was trying to explain to her why it was so hard not to kill her and in the dream I knew they were in love and all these problems they had and then when I woke up I wrote chapter thirteen, which is the meadow scene, and then, after I finished, I wanted to know what is gonna happen to them. Was he gonna kill her or how do they work it out. And so that is why I kept writing.

15. Did you create the vampires all on your own or did you have some kind of picture for them from another book or movie like “Interview with the vampire”.

No, uhm, before Twilight I think I had read one vampire book, one of Anne Rice’s. I don’t remember wich one, I read it a long time ago and I don’t think I really liked it. It was too scary. And, uhm, I’ve never seen a vampire movie in my life, I’ve never read ‘Dracula’, I’m just not into horror. So, when Twilight comes out in the theaters that will be the first time I’ve ever seen a vampire movie.

16. Who’s your favorite character? The one you feel most related to?

That’s… I can’t pick one. Because they’re all kinda like my kids and you can’t pick favorites. Uhm, but, you know, Bella is kinda like a sister to me, like a daughter to me. Sometimes I don’t like her decisions so much but then Edward and I can see things the same way. If there’s ever an argument going on in the book you can pretty much believe that I’m siding with Edward. And then there is Alice who would be the perfect best friend. I would love to be able to hang out with her. And then Carlisle and Emmet and… It’s hard… I can’t pick.

17. Okay, A friend on an online Forum ( jj_jule was asking this question for a friend) asked me to ask you this question. She wanted to know what would happen if one of the Cullens wouldn’t kill one of the animals they drink the blood of? They wouldn’t kill it. Would they turn into a vampire-animal kind of thing?
No, no. The vampires that are… are… their food… it’s just, the venom is too strong for animals. It would kill them.

18. Did you create Edward after your own fantasy of your dream guy? (The weird German translating woman did translate that question totally different and confused Stephenie with it. So, now Stephenie’s answer doesn’t really fit to the question).

I wasn’t really looking for someone that dangerous. I, I really… Edward was sort of… when I first came up with the idea of Edward in my dream… He wasn’t exactly like anything I’ve looked for but he did have elements… I always have liked red-heads quite a bit… so, there were pieces of him but he wasn’t based on anybody I knew before or any ideal I had.

19. Do you identify yourself with Bella? The whole thing that she doesn’t really know what she wants.

Well, uhm… When I was in college I was engaged with many people. So, uhm, I understand being confused and I understand loving different people in different ways. And, uhm, I think that if you’ve never been in love before it’s kind of hard to imagine ever getting past the first person you’ve loved. But after you’ve been through that and had your heart broken and moved on and found a different kind of love you start to understand how there are many good things and not all of them are even comparable. You can’t say this is absolutely the best and this is only secondary. Love comes in so may different forms and it is really hard to choose between them.

20. If you were Bella. Would you choose Edward or Jacob?

*long pause* I think I would see if they would agree to a sharing situation. I couldn’t make a decision.

After these questions were answered Stephenie quickly left the podium with a short “Thanks” and we were told not to walk away because Stephenie would sign our books outside! And oh wonder! Everyone had their books with themselves! It was so funny to see that because nobody knew about the signing but everyone brought their books just in case.

So the three of us decided not to rush and stood somewhere in the back of the line. When we came to Stephenie she said to Jule “Oooh I like your shirt!” while she signed her book and Jule replied with a nice “Thank you” and to Laura and me she said “Wow, you look so good in those shirts!” and we were pretty much like *thud* *thud* *thud* *thud* *thud*. But she was really cute and we just wanted to hug her so much. It was a great evening.

Twilight med najljubšimi knjigami Emily Osment

In Knjige,Twilight on 26/02/2008 od Mateja

Pred kakšnim tednim dni je Emily Osment pohvalila serijo knjig Somrak v oddaji The View. Zdaj pa je za revijo CosmoGirl napisala kratko recenzijo knjige.

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer is one of my all-time-favorite books. It is a fictional adventure that takes the reader into a world of vampires, forbidden love, and a place where Bella, the main character, must make the tough decision between life without love and life without danger. From the first chapter, Meyer grabbed my attention and kept me enthralled throughout the entire book. The characters contrast so greatly, I found myself wondering how she pieced them so seamlessly.

Bella and Edward are the core characters of the book. Bella is the klutzy, unoriginal, and fearless contender for Edward’s heart. Edward attends Bella’s school like any other normal teenager. He is the astonishingly attractive, timeless figure in Bella’s life, who just so happens to be a vampire. However, he is not your typical bloodsucking vampire. He and his family are civilized and live in secret wherever they go. I felt so connected to these characters, and often would look up from the book half expecting to see them standing in front of me.

Currently, there are three books in the Twilight series found on the shelves. The fourth book is still being written. Purchase Twilight, but be prepared to buy the next two books because the story does not end. I am having the hardest time waiting for the fourth book to come out. Before Twilight is made into a movie, read the book. I am a great believer in book first, movie second. Enjoy Twilight, and remember, be careful with whom you fall in love.

Dolgo je trajalo!

In Knjige,Twilight on 26/02/2008 od Mateja

Dolgo je trajalo, a končno sem le dočakala: iz Konzorcija so mi poslali knjigi Twilight in New Moon. Knjigarna je vse tri knjige iz serije Twilight naročila 26. novembra 2007 in jaz sem jih rezervirala 4. decembra. 24. februarja 2008 sem končno prejela telefonski klic iz Konzorcija – prispeli sta prvi dve knjigi. Kaj se je zgodilo s tretjo, nihče ne ve.

Ah, bom že nekako prišla še do Eclipse.

Sploh ne morem verjeti, da  prvi dve knjigi ležita  na mizi pred menoj.  Čudež.
