Stephenie Meyer Interview With USA Today

We previously posted part of USA Today interview with the Twilight Saga author Stephenie Meyer where she talked about Kristen Stewart.  We also posted the contest to meet Stephenie.  Here’s the rest of the interview plus the meet and greet with the lucky winners!

•On the illustrated guide: “My favorite part is the vampire histories. There’s a lot there that’s new. Alice’s (Cullen) back story is one no one has known until now. And I think fans will be surprised at how much fun (Cullen nemesis) Victoria’s story is.”

•On whether she’ll ever write more books about Edward and Bella: “The story’s already been told, and I doubt I’ll ever write another series based on the same characters.”

•On the possibility she’d ever finish Midnight Sun, a Twilight novel told from Edward’s viewpoint that she nixed when parts of it were leaked online in 2008: “I’m hoping to do it someday because I know that’s what people want. No matter what book I put out from here to eternity they’ll want Midnight Sun, but I’m just not writing about vampires right now.”

•On an as-yet-untitled book she might publish next: “It’s a fantasy that takes place in another world where people are using bows and arrows and swords. There’s a little bit of magic, but it’s a very limited form of magic. The characters are human, and some have the ability to use magic and some don’t. It’s pretty dark. People die. The main character is a 17-year-old girl, and she’s kind of cool.”

•On another book she might complete and publish: “When I was growing up, I was obsessed with mermaids. I do have a very elaborate outline for a book. I’m not working on it right now, but I have the feeling it’s going to be big. It’s going to be 1,000 pages.”

•On the second book in her three-book adult science-fiction series that began with The Host in 2008: “I have the outline written and the first two chapters. I need to get on it.”What Meyer says about the filming of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, which because of the expansive story line is being told in two parts. (Part 1 is scheduled for release Nov. 18 and Part 2 in November 2012):

•The much-anticipated wedding of Edward and Bella has not been filmed yet, but Stewart is being fitted for the as-yet-unrevealed bridal gown. “It’s such an interesting mix,” says Meyer. “It has a vintage feel, but at the same time, there’s an edge to it. It’s really beautiful. And then on Kristen — oh, she looks amazing in clothes —and in that dress she’s so lithe and unbelievable.”

•On working with Pattinson and Lautner: “Rob is more like Jacob than Edward. He’s goofy, he’s funny, he doesn’t take much seriously. But he can turn Edward on like that (she snaps her fingers) when he needs to be Edward. Taylor’s who we hang out with most. He’s a lot like fun, happy Jacob.”

•On her expanded role as co-producer of the two new movies: “The big difference is just being there and seeing everything. I feel I’ve seen so much of the movie and really understand what it will look like. There are still a lot of compromises. That hasn’t changed. It doesn’t make a huge difference, but I have a producer credit, which is crazy.

Some mysteries remain

One question she won’t answer: whether the werewolf/shape shifter Jacob and Renesmee, the human/vampire hybrid child of Edward and Bella, could ever have children. (Jacob is a teenager, but baby Renesmee is aging at an accelerated rate.) “That is a question I’m reserving the right not to answer, because there is a chance I’ll go back to their story.”

At the end of Day 2′s discussions and a round of book signings and photo ops, Meyer sits down with USA TODAY to share more details about her busy life and filming Breaking Dawn. (This reporter was the only journalist invited to attend this international fan event.)

It hasn’t hit her yet

On the filming of the birth of Bella and Edward’s baby, Renesmee, which in the novel is frightening and horrific, she says, “I’ve only seen a rough cut and there are pieces missing, but I don’t feel like it’s graphic. You’re not seeing it, but you know what’s happened. It’s emotional. It doesn’t feel horror-ish. There’s blood, probably the most blood we’ve ever seen in the series. But everything’s in flux; we’ll see in the final cut.”

With the second Breaking Dawn movie not out until 2012, Meyer’s emotional connection to the Twilight world will be an intimate one for months to come. She’s waiting for the moment when the finality of it hits.

“I don’t know when it’s going to get me,” she says, “but I know it will, and at that point I’m going to be a sobbing mess on the floor.”

Some of the contest winners are tearing up as they come down from the high of a very special weekend.Pamela Atzin Martinez, 16, of Mexico City is sobbing after saying her final goodbye to Meyer.”It’s just such a dream come true,” she says of her time with the author. “She has changed my life in so many ways. My father told me, ‘Stephenie Meyer is not just the author of your favorite books, she’s the author of many of the most amazing events of your life,’ and it’s so true.”

I love you Stephenie, but the part about Midnight Sun?  You’re not writing about vampires right now???  *facepalm*  UGH! 

I really can’t wait to see the wedding dress though!

    I just wanna scream at her “Get over it. It’s been over 3 years ago”. She keeps giving us the same reason and I feel it’s not enough anymore. Why should we, the fans, suffer for smth an actor did? It’s because of us Twilight got to be as successful as today. She should finish the damn thing already and be done with it.

    So wait!! Is she continuing the stories form The Host?????????

  • Karen

    The biggest thing I got out of this interview and what I was looking for was the comments about Midnight Sun. When is she going to realize what a gold mine it would be. It is what we all want. You can’t just leave us with a piece to get our mouth’s watering and then leave us hanging. I want Edward’s point of view of all four books!! What was he doing while Bella was suffering in New Moon? Did he even stick around for awhile to make sure she was o.k. wandering in the woods by herself? So many questions!!

    Two chapters WHAT?!?!? I want the sequel to the host now! God!

  • TwilightLocal

    I don’t blame Stephanie in the least about her reservations over continuing to write about vampires. ESPECIALLY now after hearing about the stolen/leaked Summit images. When people steal information that should be private and post it all over the internet, it ruins all her hard work and probably makes it hard for her to trust others. Of course I wish she was working on Midnight Sun, but this may be a good punishment for the fans who are toooooo impatient and spoil it for everyone else. I’m interested to hear more about these fresh ideas of hers though… mermaids, and other-worldly creatures. ;-) She derserves a change of scenery for once!

  • HHIMC<ParagonSchnizophonic

    SM needs to stop comparing everyone to her fave character, Jacob. That’s enough, really. Annoying
