Hi everyone! If you didn't see it in Sunday's Journal Gazette, I was interviewed about vampire fiction on the opinions page as this week's "Five Questions" person. I mentioned several of the books that you have put on the "Bella Recommends" list, and our site was mentioned in the article.
You can read the interview here at the Journal Gazette website.
Also, the above picture is NOT the newspaper that I was featured in. Just a funny picture that I had! :-D

Our book to read for the November discussion is Vivian Vande Velde's Companions of the Night. First published in 1995, Companions takes place in the span of a few short days, and follows the story of 16-year-old Kerry Nowicki. Kerry saves the life of a handsome, but mysterious young man named Ethan Bryne.
In-person discussion will take place at the Tecumseh Branch Library (Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA) on November 5th at 3:30 pm.
Online discussion starts NOW! Post your comments below...

Here's a preview from the magazine:
Director Chris Weitz on the mood of New Moon: “Twilight is about first love; New Moon is about heartbreak. That requires the actors to go to some very dark places. There is more Edward in the film. Viewers will see him more often than Bella sees him in the book.”
Taylor on representing Team Jacob: “I get nervous trying to represent Team Jacob in the right way. This guy [Robert] is some pretty good competition. The fans would love anybody who played Jacob. I’m just lucky to be the one who got the chance.”
Robert on playing god-like Edward Cullen: “When I read Twilight, and there are these moony descriptions of Edward as a godlike figure, I thought there was no way I could play him. But when I got in the room with Kristen, there was a certain chemistry. She’s basically the reason I did the movie.”
Ashley on the Twi-fans: “Kellan Lutz and I look at each other and go, ‘What is going on? This is so insane!’ It’s very different from anything that I’ve experienced. But the fans are so passionate. Seriously, this is the coolest job in the world with the best fans.”
Kellan on Breaking Dawn: “We’re all crossing our fingers, and we all want to finish the series. And we want Stephenie [Meyer] to write more books if she could!”
