So pretty! I want the Edward vol. 2 cover so bad.
20th-Oct-2013 05:19 am (UTC)
I know! Poor, lonely Edward. I can't wait!

I just got the first last week in Hong Kong! It's so pretty.
20th-Oct-2013 05:21 am (UTC)
Isn't it though! Gah! I can't wait for the Volterra scenes. I still think the last third of NM is my favorite. Reading it the first time was SO exciting. I still catch a buzz re-reading it now.

Already preordered!

20th-Feb-2014 11:49 pm (UTC)
So disappointed. They pushed it back 6 months last time, so I'm not surprised.

Is the email adress one you can reply to? Or is it an automatic response?
20th-Feb-2014 11:54 pm (UTC)
It's automated. I forgot that new moon part 1 was pushed back.
21st-Feb-2014 04:20 am (UTC)
Sorry to be a pain, did it come from Yen Press or Hachette Books?
21st-Feb-2014 04:25 am (UTC)
No I have a preorder with amazon. They sent me notifications like they did when new moon part 1 got pushed back.
21st-Feb-2014 04:28 am (UTC)
Okay, no worries. I pulled up Yen Press' page, and I'm going to fire off a letter.
30th-Apr-2014 09:49 pm (UTC)
another delay and this is so long away. a year away to be exact

And it's no longer in hardcover, kindle only. That is going to mess up my collection.

Ugh, this is just pathetic. I'm SO ANGRY. I did write a letter last time, but maybe I'll call this time...

I'm wondering where the problems stem from- the artistic end? Production? Distribution? Overseas?

Pardon my French, but this is just shitty.
4th-May-2014 08:39 pm (UTC)
im so over it, i just cancelled my order. If it comes out, it comes out.
7th-May-2014 05:35 am (UTC)
I emailed again and demanded a reply.

Dear Amy,

First and foremost, thank you so much for being a loyal fan of the Twilight graphic novel series.

Being the editor in charge, I can tell you with confidence that we are doing all we can to get the book into the hands of eager fans, and we really do want it out on time as much as you do. The situation that we are facing is that we have an incredibly talented artist putting all her effort and soul into the project to make it the very best she can. Unfortunately, she has been facing issues preventing her from finishing the beautiful pages on schedule. While we do whatever is possible to support and assist her, there are limits to what we can do, and not wanting to publish anything but the very best portrayal of the story for which fans have been waiting, there are times when things are simply a bit beyond our control.

I hope this makes sense, and I assure you that we will continue to do everything possible to release the book out as soon as possible.

Thank you so much for your patience and for letting us know that there are still eager fans out there.

Very best,

Yen Press Team

I will be emailing again and letting them know that, in any other job, someone would be fired/replaced for not making their deadlines. Manga artists do it weekly, US comic artists monthly, and the artists who work on books- like these- make their bi-annual deadlines. I'll also ask about the Kindle only format.
10th-Jun-2014 02:37 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you got your reply. It seems as if they pulled out on this project all together. It's no longer listed on amazon or barnes and noble. I think they probably shelved it. :(
10th-Jun-2014 04:01 pm (UTC)
I'll email back. Maybe they took my advice and are replacing the artist for not meeting deadlines.
18th-Jul-2014 05:46 pm (UTC)
They won't just an artist right now. She as a contract with them and there are also other stuff we aren't aware of, plus, would you like to have NM GN Part 1 and 2 in two different styles? Probably not, I just hope she will finish it soon and other publishing things will go smoothly and the release of it will come soon.
18th-Jul-2014 06:23 pm (UTC)
Eh, they replace artists in American comics all the time. Usually they hire someone with a similar style and it's a pretty seamless process. They blend the styles and it looks great.

I thought about emailing SM's publicist. I need to google and find out who she is.
18th-Jul-2014 08:59 pm (UTC)
I don't really read American comics but aren't they changing the artist when they kind of re-start the series? If they change the artist for graphic novels it would happen after finishing New Moon - I think.

Why do you want to contact her publicist?

Btw. I don't know if I can post here a post like this own on my tumblr: http://hellsbella.tumblr.com/post/92158912025/ ?
16th-Nov-2014 07:52 pm (UTC) - New arrival date is July 25, 2015

On November 5 I received an email from amazon saying the new date is July 27-31, 2015.

The Amazon site does show a hardcover and a kindle version.
There is also an itunes version I get for my ipad.

-----------------------------

I still want the Eclipse and Breaking Dawn graphic novels! I wonder if the current artist is under contract for those.

Wow! Thank you for sharing this. It's still a while off, and I suppose they could always postpone it again (and again) but at least having it scheduled is something.

Thank you, dear. Keep us posted!
20th-Nov-2014 12:55 am (UTC) - Delayed until July 2016 !!!!!!!!!!
Ugh, I received an email from Amazon saying this has been postponed until July 2016.

Does anyone have a contact there? I think I saw it in another thread.

The book isn't even listed at Amazon anymore. :-(

On a whim I just checked on the publication date for the graphic novel. It appears to be pushed back another year. *sigh*

This is total BS.
16th-Oct-2015 10:37 pm (UTC)
It's back on for July 2016. The artist who drew the books is really sick so they are in a process of finding someone new. I read it on twilight lexicon. Wow 3 years later after the first 1.

UGH! I was hoping a friend was going to meet SM at the Forks signing last month. I was going to tell her to ask about the books.

Glad they're looking for a replacement and it's not been abandoned. *whew*
16th-Oct-2015 11:02 pm (UTC)
And thanks for letting me know!

Did you read the Twilight reimagined book?
16th-Oct-2015 11:07 pm (UTC)
I'm still reading so please no spoilers. I'm liking beau and edythe. I'm at the mind over matter chapter.
