This LDS Gal is at the Top!

Look at the front page of Life, section D, in USA Today (Thursday, August 7, 2008).

There you see her.

Stephenie Meyer

I started thinking about her writings last year in August.

Then I read her first book.  Her vampire hero does not like Protestant ministers or their God.

So what do I say?

I guess it pays in America to write about young ladies falling in love with godlike males, becoming godlike, living an eternal marriage, and having godlike babies.

  1. The chain of 150 stores, to which my employer belongs, has sold approximately 4,000 copies of Breaking Dawn per day since its release.

  2. Tate, I need to write a book trilogy. . .

    maybe call the series . . .

    The Christ in Zion’s Corridor

    Do you think that would sell?

    And I need a marketer. You would be perfect. Seriously.
