Stephenie Meyer makes “World’s Highest-Paid Authors” # 6 at Forbes list

The queen of the young adult segment, however, remains Stephenie Meyer, the stay-at-home mother from Arizona whose belated discovery of her talent for fiction has almost singlehandedly buoyed booksellers for the past few years. At one point, Meyer’s “Twilight” series accounted for more than 15 percent of all books sold in the U.S. In 2010, fans starved for fresh tales of vampire romance — the last “Twilight” installment came out in 2008 — snapped up some 2.3 million copies of a spin-off novella, “The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner,” and a movie version of “Eclipse” took in $300 million at the U.S. box office and almost $400 million overseas. All told, Meyer earned $21 million — a major step down from her 2010 earnings of $41 million, but not bad for someone whose entire output during the Obama administration consists of a single 192-page volume.

21 million for Bree Tanner ? Now that's cool ! She needs to get paid more for the movies and with the graphic novel and encyclopedia she should be getting more. When Midnight Sun comes out that will be another story !
