Bluewater stakes a claim to biography of Twilight author

Female Force: Stephenie Meyer

Female Force: Stephenie Meyer

Yen Press isn’t the only publisher getting in on the Twilight phenomenon.

Bluewater Productions, which has been churning out one political biography after another, is now turning its attention to Twilight author Stephenie Meyer.

The comic will be released in October under the company’s “Female Force” banner, which has been home to biographies on such public figures as Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, Sarah Palin and Princess Diana.

“We chose Stephenie Meyer to be one of the subjects for Female Force because her voice is one for a new generation,” Bluewater Publisher Darren G. Davis tells Diamond’s PreviewsWorld. “Now people will find out the history of how she created this series, as well as her life story.”

Billed as “the first-ever illustrated biography of the world-renowned author,” the Meyer comic doesn’t appear to be authorized by the 35-year-old novelist.

Also, I’m not sure what to make of the phrase, “witness her story being told by the most famous vampire of them all.” Is the comic being narrated by Dracula? Edward Cullen?

Meyer released the first novel in her vampire-romance series in 2003. To date, the four-volume Twilight Saga has sold 53 million copies worldwide. A 2008 film adaptation grossed nearly $400 million worldwide. A sequel, New Moon, will open in theaters in November.

It was announced yesterday that Yen Press will adapt Twilight as a series of graphic novels, under the supervision of Meyer.

I don’t know if this speaks to the quality of the book or not, but the cover looks like it was done by the airbrush artist at Six Flags.

This phenomenom keep getting bigger. I’m not sure if an unorthorised biography will be a hit but if they adapt the series under the guide of Meyer herself it should do well.

“We chose Stephenie Meyer to be one of the subjects for Female Force because her voice is one for a new generation,” Bluewater Publisher Darren G. Davis tells Diamond’s PreviewsWorld.

And they had no chance in hell of getting the “Twilight” comic license. Got to cash in on something.

Will anybody be surprised when J.K. Rowlings is announced next for this series?

Twilight was published in 2005, she wrote it in 2003.

Sounds Great!
I hope the comics do the book justice.
Though the film was fantastic, I don’t think Kristen did Bella justice.
Neither the film did, the book.
