♥ Forbes lists the Highest Paid Authors (despite not releasing a new title in 2009, Stephenie Meyer still made $40 million dollars - due to royalties from the books, licensing and adaptation rights and the release of the Twilight film).
♥ Speaking of all things sparkly-vampire, the Hollywood Reporter claims that 'vampire-related entertainment' (which they describe as everything from movies, tv shows and books to clothing and porn) has generated $7 billion since the first Twilight film was released in 2008. WHAT?!?
♥ One of the first reviews of the highly-anticipated Tomorrow When The War Began. I can't wait to see this next week!
♥ Megan of Literary Life has an excellent, in-depth interview with author Penni Russon here, here and here.
♥ The AV Club has rounded up their list of Non-Doomed Fictional Couples (yeah Eric and Tami Taylor!)
