Not that I feel any vindication for Stephen King's defaming words
about our beloved Stephenie Meyer last month while drumming up attention for his new sales venture, BUT this does feel good!
Not sure that the Telegraph.co.uk
is still giving Stephenie her proper dues with this
article. She isn't just filling a spot left open by someone else, she is creating a new reading generation of young and old readers. New readers that are learning and loving to read. But the compliments for Mrs. Meyer come few and far between so we will take it and run with it.
"Stephenie Meyer, in particular, has achieved incredible success across all the English-speaking nations and Europe and many will say that her Twilight series has filled the h*** left by Harry Potter.
"Indeed, I don't think we have seen one author have so many books in the best-sellers lists since J K Rowling in the early days of the boy wizard."
