I've been so crazy busy that I haven't been watching my blog comments as much as I should have been, but it appears that on August 14, Stephenie Meyer commented on my blog post regarding her interview in Variety. I can't be sure it was Stephenie, unfortunately, as it was an anonymous comment and she didn't email to say "hey, it's really me!" :) But, if it is in fact Stephenie Meyer, I'd love for you all to read her response pasted below.
Stephenie, if you truly did comment, I sincerely appreciate you stopping by and offering your take on what happened with this interview. It means a lot to me that you took the time to comment with such thoughtfulness and address the points I brought up about this interview.
Your coming forward and leaving this response certainly has changed my opinion about the interview and I can definitely understand the miscommunication that sometimes comes with talking to a reporter. Your response about the "being over it&quo…

My friend Maggie posted a link to an interview with Stephenie Meyer that's apparently causing some controversy. Since I'm blogging so soon after reading the interview (half an hour-ish later) it obviously stirred something in me. Maggie and I have differing opinions on the fan response to this interview. *sharpens claws* KIDDING! That's what makes a great interview--it got both of us talking.
I am going to post the sections of the interview that I want to discuss. This interview is from VARIETY and written by Dave McNary.
So, from the interview (Q&A Stephenie Meyer: ‘Twilight’ Author Trades Undead for Well-Bred in ‘Austenland’) here are the sections I pulled:
DM: What about a return to “Twilight?”
SM: I get further away every day. I am so over it. For me, it’s not a happy place to be.
DM: Is the door completely closed on that?
SM: Not completely. What I would probably do is
three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died. I’m

I am BEYOND excited to be able to share the cover of my first ever chapter book!! Here it is! This is for the first book in my Unicorn Magic series from Simon & Schuster's Aladdin MIX. BELLA'S BIRTHDAY UNICORN hits stores in summer 2014 and I couldn't be happier.
I'm absolutely in love with my first illustrated cover! Thank yous to Alyson Heller, editor of all things magical, Fiona Simpson, Bethany Buck, the rest of the S&S Aladdin team and the sales force who support this book. It means so very much to me. Special thanks to illustrator Angela Martini who captured the spirits of Bella and her unicorn PERFECTLY.
I hope you all love it as much as I do! :)
