The NEW Official Eclipse Trailer! Good or Bad?


So I was browsing though YouTube the other day when I happened to stumble across the Eclipse trailer, at first I thought it was just another fanmade trailer but it turns out it was the official one! As you may know from reading my blog I am a pretty big Twilight series fan and a huge Jacob fan. So when I saw the trailer I was pretty darn excited but before I go into what I thought of the new trailer, you should probably watch it. So here it is =]

What did you think? Good or bad? In general I was pretty disappointed for numerous reasons but here are some of my top reasons.

1. Bella/Kristens Hair

Is she wearing  a wig? I am not sure if she is but just the fact that I am wondering if she is probably means she is. Well her wig is horrible, it looks fizzy and very unlike her natural hair. So I have issues with that, as someone who as worked on hair/makeup if you’re about to release a national trailer you should fix the actress’s wig.

2. Where is the Wolf Pack?

So if you’re read Eclipse you know that the Wolf Pack has a pretty big important role to play in the story but in the trailer we don’t see them or the cullens for that matter.  Also in eclipse more wolves are added, like Leah and Seth so I would have liked to see them.


Now I know they went and changed the actress for Victoria which really ticks me off. However why would you focus on her in the trailer when she know looks completely different! Victoria does have a big part to play in the story but she isn’t actually in the book that much. It’s what happens in Seattle that makes the big difference. So yeah Victoria just annoyed me in general.

4. Seattle, Jacob and The Love Triangle

We get it, Bella is confused about who she wants to kiss. Why does that have to be the focus of the trailer? When the book has such a good storyline why focus on the stupid love triangle? Where is the information about the vampire murders in Seattle and why isn’t Jacob with his pack? I know everyone wants to see the silly love triangle but it annoys me when its such a good book that they choose to focus on that! I wanted to see the vampire army, Jasper kicking butt and the new wolves. But alas Hollywood is marketing to the fourteen year old girls and so we get stuck with the love triangle.

So those are the things I find annoying but the one thing I did like about it was when Jacob said “I am gonna fight for you until your heart stops beating”. He is of course referring to Bella being turned into a vampire not her actually dieing but it was still a really sweet line. I am hoping they will release a longer trailer later with the wolves, vampire army, Jasper and more but until they do I was pretty disappointed with this first trailer.

What do you think? Did you love it? Hate it? Or are you just tired of the whole Twilight thing already? Let me know and until next time,

Memories from The Miami Book Fair and The Countdown to New Moon


miami book fair

 Hey Everyone,

So I spent the weekend at the Miami Book Fair in the amazing city that is Miami. This was my first book fair and I have to admit it was kind of awesome. I got to meet some pretty amazing authors like Meg Cabot  who of course wrote ‘The Princess Diaries’ among other books and I also met Ben H Winters who co authored ‘Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters’


 I also made some great contacts for my own books so hopefully I’ll be releasing another book before you know it (fingers crossed). I learnt a lot about what it takes to be a successful author and I loved connecting with all the different authors/publishers/magazines etc. I wanted to film one of my writing tips YouTube videos at the Fair but much to my dismay my video camera died! But have no fear I still did my Writing Tip video and it should be up on YouTube within the next couple of days.  All in all the Miami Book Fair was amazing and I hope to be one of the featured authors there one day.


Now I have a confession to make I am so excited for the New Moon movie! I am not excited because of Edward, Bella or the Cullen’s, I am actually really excited to see Jacob be the leading man and taking his shirt off for the most of the move isn’t a bad thing either :p  I will be at the movies at midnight to see New Moon and I have a feeling as soon as Jacob comes on the screen there will be many teenage girls screaming with joy. I will infact contain myself and not scream at a cinema screen because unlike many teenage girls I know that even if I screamed at  the screen Jacob is not going to jumped out of that screen and suddenly be right in front on me. Anyhow what about you? Do you love or hate New Moon and are you watching it at Midnight? Either way let me know.



Finally I had an idea for my blog, since I am a best selling author and I love to read, I was thinking about doing book reviews. Not really longwinded ones just quick fun reviews about books people either give me or I am just reading for fun. I was thinking about doing this on the last Friday of every month and calling it ‘The Friday Review’ (creative I know :P) but let me know what you think of that idea. Love it? Hate it? Or if you have a book you think I should review please let me know =]



Okay so until next time leave comments have fun and if  like me you’re watching New Moon on the 20th be considerate of your fellow movie goers and try not to scream at the screen too much (but grinning like a Cheshire cat is perfectly acceptable).
