A round-up of all things Twilight
There is never a dull moment in the world of Twilight as Stephenie Meyer’s phenomenally successful vampire/fantasy series goes from strength to strength. It is not only the books that see Meyer’s titles sitting pretty, September’s audio-book downloads feature all four titles in the top ten.
We have brought together the most interesting news stories from the past 7 days:
New documentary on the town that inspired the books
There are over two months to go until New Moon and in anticipation director Jason Brown and producer York Baur have put together a documentary about the real town that inspired the books. Meyer sets her Twilight series series in the town of Forks, Washington, the rainiest city in the continental United States. Now the real town, its residents, and its culture are showcased in the documentary Twilight in Forks – The Saga of the Real Town. Available on DVD on October 15, 2009 (only in the US), the documentary features an up-close look at the people who reside in the remote town and the affects of the Twilight phenomenon on Forks’ residents.
Tinsel visits the Quileute
Tinsel Korey, who plays a supporting role in the forthcoming Twilight movie, visited the Quileute tribe last week where she visited the Quileute Tribal School and also went to the beach at twilight for a bonfire, pictures and time with fans who were visiting for Stephenie Meyer Weekend in the Forks area.
“In true Native tradition, she is doing what our ancestors and elders have taught us to do for centuries. Tinsel is giving back and sharing her gifts and talents with our Native youth.” tribal Chairwoman Carol Hatch said.

Meet Me On the Equinox, the first New Moon soundtrack single by emo rockers Death Cab For Cutie, will debut this Sunday night on MTV’s website during its Video Music Awards telecast.
