‘Twilight’ Author Pens Other
The three books in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series have already sold more than 5 million copies in the United States and now dominate bestseller lists for children’s books.
“I think the reason why we get the comparison is because our fans are actually similar,” says Meyer. “They have that same fanatical thing going on. They dress for the events. They come out early. They’re just so into the characters.”
About 1,000 fans turned out to see Meyer Tuesday, when she kicked off a tour supporting her first adult book, The Host, at the gigantic Mall of America in suburban Minneapolis, Minn. The way she tells it, the Twilight series began with a dream about a vampire and a teenage girl.

“It was just this little hobby of mine,” says Meyer. “To me, it always was a story, and I enjoyed writing it so much that there really didn’t need to be another purpose for it.”

Time goose outlet canada magazine described the canada goose uk black friday sexual tension inherent in the story as “the erotics of abstinence.” Meyer calls it a sort of passionate restraint:
“It’s really just my experience with the world and my experience with passion,” she explains. “When there is restraint involved, there’s so much more to it. I think a lot of fiction and movies these days, they’re really missing that beginning stage. They skip right past it.”
Her new book, a science fiction romance, is geared to the adult canada goose outlet online market. It tells the story of two women one an Canada Goose Parka alien from outer space who inhabit the same body and are in love with the same man.

“Some of my friends [who] read The Host back when I was working on it in the rough draft stages told me. ‘Am I supposed to be canada goose outlet uk rooting for the humans? Because I’m kind of not!” she says.
