Midnight Sun: Edward's Version of Twilight

Thu, July 12, 2012 3:14pm EST

As some of you may have heard, my partial draft of Midnight Sun was illegally posted on the Internet and has since been virally distributed without my knowledge or permission or the knowledge or permission of my publisher.

I have a good idea of how the leak happened as there were very few copies of Midnight Sun that left my possession and each was unique. Due to little changes I made to the manuscript at different times, I can tell when each left my possession and to whom it was given. The manuscript that was illegally distributed on the Internet was given to trusted individuals for a good purpose. I have no comment beyond that as I believe that there was no malicious intent with the initial distribution.

I did not want my readers to experience Midnight Sun before it was completed, edited and published. I think it is important for everybody to understand that what happened was a huge violation of my rights as an author, not to mention me as a human being. As the author of the Twilight Saga, I control the copyright and it is up to the owner of the copyright to decide when the books should be made public; this is the same for musicians and filmmakers. Just because someone buys a book or movie or song, or gets a download off the Internet, doesn't mean that they own the right to reproduce and distribute it. Unfortunately, with the Internet, it is easy for people to obtain and share items that do not legally belong to them. No matter how this is done, it is still dishonest. This has been a very upsetting experience for me, but I hope it will at least leave my fans with a better understanding of copyright and the importance of artistic control.

So where does this leave Midnight Sun? My first feeling was that there was no way to continue. Writing isn't like math; in math, two plus two always equals four no matter what your mood is like. With writing, the way you feel changes everything. If I tried to write Midnight Sun now, in my current frame of mind, James would probably win and all the Cullens would die, which wouldn't dovetail too well with the original story. In any case, I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on Midnight Sun, and so it is on hold indefinitely.

I loved readng Meyer's online "MIDNIGHT SUN"
My first time reading a book online, lol!
Especially ironic it's a Romance... a sort of bastard- child by the author of TWIGHT series of books. It retells 'twight' from edwards's (not Bella's) perspective.
And ,no , I'm not a fun of her books, but this one was a lot of fun! I hope she continues in this vein, rewriting all her twight books from Edward's viewpoint (which is pretty much omniscient, since he reads minds).
Usually , lately at least, I haven't been a fan of romance, but this story was addictive.

More about Sabbath

People have been using Sunday, as Sabbath day for many years. When it was change from Saturday to Sunday, it changed God Law and time. There is another change of time that men have done. Time clock had mostly changed our real nature time. The way I see, men made time had change times by how they start the day. God had already given us a sign of time. Our real sign of times are such as sun, moon, and star, which are found in the book of Genesis. Christ people today who worship on the God Holy Day began on Friday sunset to Saturday sunset, but it should start by the beginning of seventh day sunset to the end of seventh day sunset
