Take a sneak peek at the Twilight 'New Moon' graphic novel -- EXCLUSIVE

New-Moon-01-13

If you’re a Twilight fan, you’ve probably experienced New Moon in more than one form already, but now you have another. The first installment of the New Moon graphic novel—based on the story by Stephenie Meyer with art by Young Kim—will be available on April 30. In the first volume, Bella and Edward find themselves facing new obstacles, including a devastating separation, the mysterious appearance of dangerous wolves roaming the forest in Forks, a terrifying threat of revenge from a female vampire, and a deliciously sinister encounter with Italy’s reigning royal family of vampires: the Volturi.

The 'Fifty Shades' bump: More 'Twilight' fanfiction is being turned into novels

Here’s some news appropriate for Bram Stoker’s 165th birthday: Another piece of Twilight fanfiction is getting adapted into an original novel, Fifty Shades of Grey-style. The fic, originally called “The Office,” reimagined Edward Cullen and Bella Swan as a powerful businessman and his smart, ambitious intern.

Sound familiar? That’s not because the story rips off Fifty Shades — in fact, “The Office” appeared on the Internet before the fic that became E L James’ bestseller. “The Office paved the way for Fifty Shades and a thousand other imitators,” University of Utah professor and fanfiction expert Anne Jamison tells The Hollywood Reporter. “It turned fanfiction’s ‘porn without plot’ into porn as plot, peopling Twilight‘s basic plot structure with sexually voracious, assertive and snarky adults.”

Michael Connelly says he sees 'Twilight' dad as Harry Bosch

Thriller author Michael Connelly has seen a couple of his characters embodied on-screen at this point—Clint Eastwood played Blood Work‘s Terry McCaleb, while Matthew McConaughey just took his turn as street-smart defense counsel Mickey Haller—but his most popular creation, Los Angeles homicide detective Hieronymous “Harry” Bosch, has remained solely in book form. Connelly introduced Bosch in 1992′s The Black Echo and has since written 15 more novels featuring him, sometimes alongside other characters like McCaleb and his half-brother Haller. With the release of The Lincoln Lawyer, EW asked Connelly whether there was anyone in Hollywood he could see taking on the role in a movie version, and the author suggested Billy Burke, who plays Bella’s sheriff father in the Twilight saga.

“Something about him…he’s got the mustache,” says Connelly. “Whenever I see him in movies, he’s very close to how I picture Harry Bosch.” Connelly admits that if they ever make a movie from one of his Bosch books, the producers would probably want to go for someone a little more A-list, but, hey, you never know. The author seems to have a particularly good nose for this kind of stuff: He totally called McConaughey’s casting. “Back when I was watching Tropic Thunder, where McConaughey plays an underhanded Hollywood agent, I said to my wife, ‘He could play Mickey Haller.’ That was the first time I thought about it, and then maybe a year later I got that message that it was McConaughey.”

What does Stephenie Meyer's publicist do in her spare time? Write YA novels, of course

Prom-and-Prejudice_320.jpg Image Credit: Liz LigonElizabeth Eulberg has quite the day job. Her very intimidating title is Director of Global Publicity for Stephenie Meyer, which means she manages planet Earth’s insatiable demand for the Twilight mega-author. But on the weekends the 35-year-old Wisconsin native turns off the ringer to her vampire phone, holes up in her Hoboken, apartment, and writes 5,000 words a day. (She awards herself a cupcake on Sunday evenings for met word quotas.)

Eulberg, with the full support of her very influential boss, published her first YA novel The Lonely Hearts Club to sweet acclaim last year. Her new book, Prom & Prejudice, is a fun spin on Jane Austen’s masterpiece, told from the point of view of Lizzie Bennett, a junior scholarship student struggling to maintain her sense of dignity at a terribly snobby private school. We recently caught up with Eulberg, who somehow aims to publish a book a year while also handling all things Team Twilight. READ FULL STORY

twilight-illustrated-guide_216.jpg The bad news: It’s not another sequel.

The good news: There will be plenty of brand-new details in The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide, a reference book Stephenie Meyer created to accompany her best-selling novels. According to a press release from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, the $24.99 encyclopedia, which will go on sale April 12, 2011, includes “character profiles, outtakes, a conversation with Meyer, genealogical charts, maps, extensive cross-references, and much more,” including art by Young Kim, who illustrated Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1.

For her part, Meyer said, “I’m always amazed at how many in-depth questions my readers have about my characters and the world within the Twilight Saga. With The Official Illustrated Guide, I hoped we could incorporate as many details as possible, including character histories, like Alice’s back story.”
