From The Goddess Stephenie herself:
I want to do something different with publicity for this movie release. For Twilight, I did the normal press junket, for New Moon I got to go on Oprah. Both of these were fun, exciting experiences.
However, they both had the same drawback—the interviews were designed
for a very broad audience, and because of that, most of the questions
were about things you guys have known the answers to for years. I feel
like all of the basic questions have been answered, and for Eclipse I
want to focus on the more specific questions of the readers. To
accomplish that, I'm hosting my own mini-junket with a few fansites. It
will be held on Friday, June 18th, the week before the L.A. premiere.
Unfortunately, I can't talk to every single site, and I want to keep this as low key and enjoyable as possible. So I put all the U.S. fansites in a hat (for logistical reasons, we had to keep this in the
country) and drew out four names.
The names I drew were:
Each of these sites is invited to send two members of their staff (or one member and a guest) to our fan-centric mini-junket. You will be contacted shortly by my assistant, who will give you all the specific
information. In the event that any of the sites is unable to send
representatives, I've already drawn four back up sites, which I will
post if it becomes necessary.
I'll answer all of your questions (and your readers questions, if you want to poll them) about the Eclipse Movie, and the Bree story, as well, which will have been out for a few weeks by then. We'll have
lunch, hang out, and hopefully have a fantastic time. I hope you all
can make it!
My acceptance speech!
I will be there with bells on! I am RSVPing at this moment. Are we having a sleepover and braiding each others hair while talking about sexy vampires!?! I am still in shock after calling all of my closest friends. Should I wear your dress? Oprah didn't choose me and I think this is Oprah karma. You alone is better than being in the Oprah audience any day of the year.
I will try to reign in my fangirlness until you get to know me.
PS Is that you kitchen granite? Cause it's gorgeous!
