Now, imagine if she hadn't put it online for free!
Stephenie Meyer, the mastermind that spawned The Twilight Saga and gave The Holy Trinity their careers, has a lot to celebrate this week. Not only is the third movie based on her third book poised to smash the box-office this week, but her latest addition to the Twilight collection, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, has sold over 1 million copies in under a month!
Meyer's publisher, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers said this morning that the book now ranks as the year's best-selling literature so far in the U.S.
We hope this has proved something to you, Stephenie. Time to get back to writing more tales of sparkling vampires. No need for it be any good. Just make sure there is some sparkling and Volvos and a lot of Edward Cullen. Twi-Hards will buy a zillion copies!

Stephenie Meyer, the Twilight author who introduced us to sparkly vampires, is now saying she's tired of the undead creatures.
In 2008, she stopped working on the fifth novel in the series, Midnight Sun, after her unfinished manuscript had been leaked online. Unfortunately for Twi-hards and lonely moms they have been waiting with bated breath for her to finish the companion novel.
But it doesn't look so good for fans as the author is now saying she's "burned out on vampires" and she most likely won't finish the novel anytime in the near future.
"I know that's what everyone cares about. I also know that the right answer would be for me to say 'Oh yah, it's done! And it'll be out next month!' But that's not true. It's also not true that I've got a ton of work done on it, and that's what I'm working on. What's true is that I'm really burned out on vampires. And, I don't want to write it badly. So I want to wait until I'm excited about the material again, and I'm excited about Edward, and that it's something that's motivating. You know, when a story is keeping me up at night, and I'm waking up at 4 am in the morning and thinking 'Yes! That is what should happen in this moment!' Then that is when I can write with happiness! So, right now it feels like homework … it really does. And when things feel like homework they go very, very slowly for me. That should disappoint everyone!"

Is this for real?
The most popular baby names in the U.S. right now are Isabella and Jacob.
As in Twilight's Isabella Swan and Jacob Black???
And even more
disgusting amazing, CULLEN was the fastest-rising baby name of 2009. As in Edward Cullen!!!
Come on now, people. Nothing is more embarrassing than telling people you named your baby after a teen romance about a sparkling vampire.
