The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner is released!

The Eclipse novella was released today and I decided last minute to check out Borders' midnight release party. Only select stores held them (or will hold them for you west-coasters in the U.S.) and I was surprised to see that the Borders an hour from my house would be open late tonight. I drove down there just to see what sort of turnout there would be and I am sooo glad I did! I got The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner for 40% (yay!) and Borders' had some goodies to give away as well.

They had bookmarks and lanyards for everyone and many of the stores held (will hold) free raffles for a signed bookplate signed by Stephenie Meyer!!

My local Borders was one of the stores who gave away one of the bookplates and guess who won???


David Slade, Director of Eclipse - Note for the fans

Dear fans of The Twilight Saga,

I want to congratulate you for reaching over 6 million fans on The Twilight Saga Facebook page.

It's hard to fathom that it was just over one year ago that I started constructing this third and epic adventure which takes place in the town of Forks.

I want to share a story about one of our days of shooting with you.

It was a Friday night and the rain was relentless. We were at La Push to shoot the tribe's histories, a great speech by Billy Black. We had Taylor and Kristen and the whole wolf pack around a campfire as the heavens let loose on us.

Gil Birmingham was in fine form as the rain hammered down on us all, we adjusted our lights so that the rain vanished into the black of night.

We constructed a tent over the scene to keep everyone dry as we worked, every 15 minutes or so we would have to tip it to stop the collecting rain from splitting the fabric.

For some reason still unknown, around 3am, the wolf pack stood exactly in the way of several gallons of rainwater as it was being cleared. Being the wolf pack, they just laughed it off as they stood there soaked to the bone.

We worked through the mud and the rain all night, until we had the scene perfected.

As we left, dawn was now cracking and in the dim light I passed a small army of fans who had braved the weather for the entire night, still standing there, holding drenched flowers and waiting to get a glimpse of our actors.

So, to those of you who stood behind our security, who waited in line at theatres overnight, to those of you who just love these stories, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is a love letter to you.

Each day I felt the weight of your favourite scenes, your favourite lines, your dreams and your imagination.

It has been an unforgettable journey, and now as I finalise the last prints to ready the film for your local theaters, I cannot wait for you to see it.

Sincerest Regards,
