    The author speaks--um, WRITES....

    I'm the author. I have a copy of the book in my hands and can now clarify a few points to the interested reader.

    First, please DISREGARD the five-star rating. There's no neutral rating that an author can give, so I'm forced to make a choice.

    The book will be out in MID-JULY.

    The book is principally my work, but I've been aided tremendously by Mike Gurling of the Forks Chamber of Commerce. He proofread the book, made corrections, and contributed dozens of photos, so this is NOT an outsider's book but, in fact, an insider's book. Mike and Marsha and everyone else in Forks made me felt welcome in Forks, and this is my celebration of that small town that Stephenie Meyer put on the literary map.

    The book has three essays: my first-hand impressions of Forks (very favorable); my look at the Twilight phenomenon in general; and my thoughts on why I think the book has struck such a responsive chord in female readers, of all ages, everywhere.

    The book also has nearly 100 photographs of key locations and places in town that are related to Twilight, plus photos of La Push beach (a must see!), and the Hoh Rain Forest, which is south of the city.

    The book is printed in FULL COLOR and the printing job is excellent. The book is bound with sewn signatures, so that means it'll hold up under repeated readings. It's printed on a matte paper stock that does a great job of showing the photos, whereas glossy tends to overpower photos somewhat. (You notice the glare.)

    Because Forks is a small town that has, in recent years promoted tourism as a main industry, it has really gotten behind the Twilight phenomenon. I went there for the first time earlier this year and the townsfolk made me feel at home. It's a hidden jewel in the Pacific Northwest, and even if you don't go there for Twilight, you can go there and get away from the hustle and bustle of big-city life. Take a time out. A breather. Enjoy a slower pace of life. And put that cell phone away--you really don't need to be accessible 100% of the time--and walk around Forks or La Push beach or the Hoh Rain Forest and ENJOY LIFE.

    This book celebrates Forks, its people, and highlights the multiple connections between it and Twilight. And if it prompts you to get in a car or get on a plane and go all the way to Forks, then I've done what I can to promote tourism--a good thing.

    Twilight Tours was awesome!

    As a Twilight fan, this book was a lot of fun! It shows pictures of places in Forks and other places in the book! It brought the book to life a little more and was fun to see real places!
