Stephenie Meyer's enthusiasm dims for another Twilight book

Posted by Naybeth Díaz | Labels: | Posted On Monday, 7 December 2009 at 09:38

Thanks to we bring you this:

With sales of more than 70m copies she is the queen of teen vampire romance, but Twilight author Stephenie Meyer has announced that she's "a little burned out on vampires".

Asked on the Oprah Winfrey show if she'd consider writing another book in the Twilight quartet, Meyer said that she had no immediate plans to return to the story of human teenager Bella and her vampire love interest Edward. "I think I need a little break," she said. "I've got to cleanse the palate ... I'm a little burned out on vampires right now."

Her next book, she said, was likely to be a follow-up to her one adult novel The Host – about the invasion of earth by a species which takes over the minds of humans while leaving their bodies intact – which she sees as a trilogy, but it could also be something "completely different". "I have another book that's kind of been itching in the back of my brain, that's completely unrelated, totally fantasy. So fantasy it'll have a map in the front – that's always the judge, right?" she said.

Having envisioned it as a longer series and "know[ing] what happens" to Bella and Edward in the future, Meyer said she "may" come back to the world of Twilight, but "I wrapped up [fourth novel] Breaking Dawn in a way that I felt satisfied with, so if that moment didn't come I'd feel OK".

She's also musing over whether to go back to Midnight Sun, which tells the story of the romance from the perspective of vampire Edward. An unfinished draft was leaked on the internet last year, prompting the author to put the project "on hold indefinitely".

"I need to feel alone with something to be able to write it and I do not feel alone with that manuscript at this point. So many people have chimed in on it," she said. "I'm over the shock of it but not over the feeling that everyone's involved now, and it doesn't feel like mine so much anymore. I 'm hoping that with a little time, time to write something else, get my head out of it for a while ... it's so clear in my head, I'd like to go back to it."

The film of New Moon, the second book in the series, is released this week.

Stephenie on Oprah

We bring you more news about the host and it's trilogy.

As many of you probably heard, Stephenie was on Oprah talking about the release of New Moon. Given all the hype surrounding the movie, I didn't expect The Host to even be mentioned, but it was! [At least in some backstage interviews.]

Meyer says The Host is "kinda [her] favorite thing she's ever done. I see that as a three book series so I'll probably go back into that one again. We're working on the movie right now so I'm sort of spending time with those characters so it's likely so will be my next move..."

She also talks about why she likes The Host more than Twilight! ;)

Thanks to the host novel LiveJournal for the news

Extra chapter to be included in the paperback version of The Host and would it be a trilogy?

Posted by Naybeth Díaz | | Posted On at 09:50

ON November 16th Stephenie did a quick Twilight FAQ session in which a few the host questions came into surface: here are 2 of them that gives us some kind of hope about the release of 2 more books (we assume is the soul and the seeker)

Are you writing any other books right now? - Kershia

One of the weirdest things for me about success is how it sucks away your time. I'm successful because I write books, but that very success takes all my writing time! It's very frustrating. I'm just itching to get back into a fantasy world right now, but the real world won't let me. I thought this would be a writing year, but unless you count emails as writing, it didn't work out that way. I was able to do a few smaller things that will show up here and there—an extra chapter for the release of The Host in paperback, that kind of thing. I've really worked to clear my time, but that is a slow and ongoing process. Of course, another aspect is that I am more burned out by the last five years than I even realized.

Hi Stephenie! :) Of course, I love the Twilight saga, but I was also blown away by how beautiful and unique your other novel, The Host, was -- so I was wondering: do you have any plans for more books not related to Twilight? Thank you so much! :) Kelly <3

I'd like to eventually have The Host be part of a trilogy. That's one of the projects I'd really like to get to in the next year or so.

So as The Host novel Livejournal said:

So ...if Stephenie plans to be working on the next book "in a year or so", maybe that means the extra chapter in The Host will be a sneak preview of the next book?!".

According to Amazon this edition will be released on april 13th 2010. let's keep our fingers crossed

Fans cast Stephenie Meyer's 'The Host' film

Posted by Naybeth Díaz | Labels: , | Posted On Saturday, 24 October 2009 at 20:29

Thanks to the examiner we bring you this:

Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series books (Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn) aren't her only best-sellers - as you well know. Her book, The Host, also claimed top marks on the charts (and for good reason).

The Host follows the ninth life of "Wanderer," a "soul," who makes her way to Earth for the first time as a human being. Her host body, though, becomes a strange thing for Wanderer because the human soul of Melanie, the body, refuses to disappear and make way for her own cognitive control.

Wanderer and Melanie form an indescribable (though thoroughly described by Stephenie Meyer, of course) bond through this experience, and Wanderer seeks out those who Melanie (and vicariously Wanderer) loves. Her experience amongst those individuals - particularly the characters Jared, Jamie, Ian, and Jeb - is the crux of the story, and Wanderer's challenge is to keep Melanie "alive" during her incorporation into the group.

In September, the news came out that this book was, like most of Meyer's other books, going to be made into a film. After the initial reports, Meyer expressed an interest in what fans would have to say about potential castmates for the future film. Despite the unending excitement going on in the Twilight film series world, many fans have been putting together their own set of suggestions for that very thing.

The characters which are most ardently discussed by fan-casters are, naturally, Melanie, Jared, Jamie, Jeb, and Ian.

Actors thrown into the hat of suggestions for the character Melanie are (and this is not an exhaustive list, of course) Sophia Bush, Megan Fox, Camilla Belle, Olivia Wilde, Summer Glau, Milla Jovovich, Natalie Portman, Amanda Peet, Evangeline Lilly, Rose Byrne, Eliza Dushku, and Jodi Gordon. A common trait amongst some of these women is the sense of strength and toughness that Melanie Stryder embodies in the book.

For Jared, the consensus is pretty strong amongst the fans that Jensen Ackles should play the part, but other suggestions also linger such as James McAvoy, Jesse Metcalf, Benjamin McKenzie, Jared Padalecki, Hugh Jackman, Chris Pine, Matt Damon, and Chris Evans (with a few Gerard Butler and Jeffrey Dean Morgan pluggers along the way). The thing about the character Jared is that he has to be fierce and ruthless at times, but he has to also be a softy deep down.

With Jamie, the casting is especially fun because he is a character that is young, curious, tolerant, independent, and exceptionally wise and kind. He is also the character that Melanie (and by association Wanderer - "Wanda," by then) has the deepest affection for. Some suggestions have included Logan Lerman, Josh Hutchenson, Allan Hyde, and Justin Bieber.

Perhaps it's his gun-toting, thick-skinned, brute-but-lovable character resume, but Sam Elliott, to most, is a pretty perfect fit for Jeb. Jeb's character is the sly and authoritative protector-type who speaks when necessary and is the first to put his foot down (or his gun in the air, as the case may be). Other suggestions have included Harrison Ford, Hugh Laurie, and Willie Nelson, but Elliott seems to hone in on the Jeb-ness pretty universally where fans are concerned.

Ian, on the other hand, is a character that brings in suggestions from across the entire board. While there are quite a few who contend that Ian Somerhalder is a good match for the character, Chace Crawford, Christian Bale, Sean Faris, Henry Cavill, Marc Blucas, Tom Welton, and, once again, James McAvoy are all actors that have been fan-vetted for the role.

Where there are a host (pun clearly intended) of other roles at play in the fan-casting fun, these are some of the major ones at issue in the fan community.

Oh, but the fun certainly does not stop there. Not only are fans creating their fantasy Host teams, many have also created fan-made trailers for the film as well as movie posters. Here are a couple that are really great.

Hey guys, great news! The Host is on its way to the big screen: "Twilight's Meyer..."

I'm so excited to be working with Nick Weschler, and Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz to bring The Host to a visual format. They've all been a dream to work with, so lovely and collaborative, and I feel like we're in a really good place to make a great movie together. And then to have Andrew Niccol writing and directing? Truly awesome. If you've never seen Gattaca, go watch it now. One of my favorite movies of all time. It's such a great example of character driven science fiction, which is ideal for The Host, no? I'm having an absolute blast imagining different dream casts, which I would post if people didn't take my silly blogs so seriously these days. I'm looking forward to seeing the cast lists you come up with in the fansite forums, and if any of them match mine.

So, very exciting. Yay Host!


The day we were all waiting for has arrived!!!!!

Producers acquire Meyer's 'Host'
Trio use own money to buy screen rights to novel

Producers Nick Wechsler, Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz have used their own money to acquire screen rights to "The Host," the first adult novel written by Stephenie Meyer, author of the "Twilight" series.

Andrew Niccol will write the script and direct.

Meyer's novel is a love story set in the near future on Earth, which has been assimilated by an alien species of benevolent parasites that call themselves "Souls." One such soul, the Wanderer, is fused with a dying human named Melanie Stryder, in an attempt to locate the last pocket of surviving humans on Earth.

Wechsler and the Schwartzes are separately teamed on "The Road," the John Hillcoat-directed adaptation of the Cormac McCarthy novel that will be released Nov. 25 by the Weinstein Co. They are also producing the Paul Schrader-scripted "The Dying of the Light" and an adaptation of Pete Takada book "An Eye at the Top of the World," which Ryne Douglas Pearson is adapting.

In addition to writing four volumes of the "Twilight" series, Meyer has been heavily involved in the screen transfers, and she spurned several overtures for "The Host." The producers continued lobbying the author and her UTA reps with a significant offer, a strong vision for the project and a collaborative spirit. Meyer eventually said yes.

In fact, Niccol first came under consideration after Wechsler and the Schwartzes asked Meyer what her favorite science fiction films are. "Gattaca" and "The Truman Show" were in her top five; Niccol wrote and directed "Gattaca" and scripted the Peter Weir-directed "The Truman Show."

Niccol most recently wrote and directed Orlando Bloom starrer "The Cross."

"We wanted Stephenie to be involved in the adaptation and have her endorse and be part of the creative decisions," Wechsler said. "Twilight" has "proven she knows more about what works than most."

Summit releases the second adaptation of Meyers' vampire series, "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," on Nov. 20.

Thanks to Variety

Hey! Hey!

I just want to say that there's not an agreement to turn "the host" into a movie, is just the normal fandom desire of doing it.

Stephenie Meyer uses 'The Host' merchandising to help the homeless

Posted by Naybeth Díaz | Labels: | Posted On at 09:46

Twilight series novelist Stephenie Meyer is now the market-wise benefactor of charitable institutions for the homeless.
Her fifth published novel,The Host will be merchandised by a fledgling skating gear company called Hobo Skate Co. Hobo benefits local charities in assistance of the homeless.
Meyer's interest in working with Hobo Skate Co., according to a report that quotes one of the company's co-founders, stemmed from the charitable nature of the organization and its promise of future collaboration with these local groups (once a profit is attainable and available for share). Chances are, Meyer's marketing deal with Hobo will bring them to that point sooner rather than later.
"The Host" is about alien parasites who take over humans - more appealing to the skater crowd. Hobo shirts and decks feature images of the alien.
... Meyer is involved in the design process, and, in fact, wanted to tweak one of the designs at the last minute, delaying the debut of the "Host" merchandise until next week.
It will be available online at first and then in major retailers.
This isn't the first time Meyer has taken part in a major charity drive. Earlier this year, she joined hands with fellow authors in the Save the Book Babe event, raising thousands of dollars by donating very sentimental pieces of memorabilia.

This girl said in the comments that Matt Dallas could be a great Ian. What do you think?.
I have to agree with this.

Did you know you can browse Stephenie Meyer's books online for free?

Posted by Naybeth Díaz | Labels: | Posted On Thursday, 9 July 2009 at 11:37

Perhaps I haven't been paying attention, but I didn't know that Hachette Books was so accomodating to those still on the fence as to whether or not to buy Stephenie Meyer's books.
At their website, they have a clever tool for internet users, who can browse all of Meyer's works for free when deciding whether or not to pick them up.
Much like you would be able to browse a book in the bookstore before deciding to purchase it, you can take your time and check all of her works out before deciding to purchase one on-line or in bookstores.
Provided below are the portals to do so. Check them out! They're really very neat.
Of course, it's impossible to read Meyer's hundreds of pages of text through this medium, but it's a nice way for those who haven't read the series and The Host yet to get acquainted with the texts.

The 'other' Stephanie Meyer book, "The Host"
By: Kendra Brummer, Writer

The Host is written by Stephanie Meyer and was published in May 2008. In my opinion this is a great book that I would recommend to all readers, especially Stephanie Meyer fans. Meyer wrote this book around the same time that she was working on the last book of the well known Twilight series. The story line captures your attention and keeps you wondering what will happen next. Even the chapter titles (Needed, Ambushed, Horrified) make you want to read more.

The book is set in the post alien invasion period of earth. Aliens with no true bodies need to attach themselves to others-much like parasites. There are only a few "survivors," which are the people that haven't become hosts for the aliens. The aliens call themselves "souls" and take over whatever host body they decide to inhabit. The "souls" are placed in the host body by cutting the back of the host's neck. They are then laid in the open wound and attach themselves. They then erase the human's mind and go about the normal activities of that person because they still have all of memories of the host body.

One human survivor, Melanie, is captured while looking for her cousin and has a soul named Wanderer placed inside her. Melanie fights back and refuses to give up her body. As a result, Melanie and Wanderer form a relationship of sorts and eventually set out to find Melanie's boyfriend, Jared, and brother, Jamie.

The book discusses the obstacles they encounter on their journey and the dangers of being caught by a Seeker, a soul that seeks out survivors of the initial invasion. The Seekers either bring the human in to have another soul implanted to try to find out information of any other humans or they "dispose" of them. One Seeker seems very interested in trying to extract information from Wanderer about where Melanie had come from and if there were others.

Melanie is able to stop Wanderer from accessing memories that would put her family in danger. She only allows Wanderer to see certain memories and Wanderer begins to love and care about Melanie's family. It is because of this that they begin their journey to find them, hoping that they are still alive and safe.

The characters are fascinating and ever-changing. You begin to understand and care about what happens to the main characters, Melanie and Wanderer, which are really two characters in one body. I give this book a perfect 10.

Best Sci-fi book 2008

Posted by Naybeth Díaz | Labels: | Posted On Tuesday, 27 January 2009 at 15:35

Robert Thompson, better known as the Fantasy Book Critic, has turned his eyes to the best fantasy and scifi novels of 2008, along with some games and comics too.

The Kingdom Beyond the Waves was his best fantasy novel, with The Host by Stephenie Meyer heading up the SF section, although he admits this is more of a romance play (but nothing wrong in that).
