Stephenie Meyer is hosting her own Eclipse mini-junket with Twilight fansite

How wonderful would it be if you get to chat and discuss with the non other than the author of The Twilight Saga, Stephenie Meyer herself. I mean...she is the one who made all this craziness and obsessiveness exist in the first place. Well, Stephenie Meyer will be having a press junket to 5 lucky twilight blogger she picked from a hat. lol...yes literally. Unfortunately, Twilighters Malaysia didn't even make the list as we are not from US. we wish we are in US rite now. :'(

So, here is what Steph wrote on her 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:

  • Twilight Series Theories (
  • Twilight Source (
  • Twifans (
  • Letters To Twilight (
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!
