I don’t know if any of you follow the “Twilight” series. I personally love it, but I know it’s not for everyone. Whether you like it or not, every writer out there can understand her anger at the posting of a portion of her “Midnight Sun” manuscript. It’s about 12 chapters, and looking at how far along that is in “Twilight,” I would guess that’s about 1/3 of her book. Here’s a link to where she talks about it on her web site. Personally, I hope she can let go of her initial anger and annoyance and finish the book. Everyone who would have bought it before will still buy it. I’ve read the chapters she posted and it doesn’t finish the story. There’s still so much to be told.
In other news, my editing has gone well this week. I’ve done chapters 9 and 10 and think I will finish chapter 11 today. That brings my chapter percentage up to about 33, but if you look at the actual page numbers, it’s almost 40% completed. Yea!!!! I guess some of my later chapters are shorter. I think it’s going really well, and I love the changes I’ve made and the different dynamic it adds to portions of the story.

Hey (i beta’d your story a little while ago)
I was really upset about the midnight sun leak. I didnt even want to read it. Im hoping she changes her mind and eventually finishes it and releases it.
Hows the story coming along? Have you settled on a title?
I read her book and absolutley LOVED it! I would love to have all 4 books written in his perspective! I may just like it better then the first four! Glad to hear your writing is going well! All this extra free time you have is helping!!
I read it, too. And I loved it, maybe even better than the original. Edward is my favorite character and I like his view on things. Sometimes Bella is a little whiny, if you know what I mean. I hope she finishes the rest. After all, “Midnight Sun” didn’t even get to some of the best parts.
i hope you will finish the book. the leakage won’t be a problem. those who have read the leakage of midnight sun, will still buy your book.. i love your works.
