Book Description

Edward's Twilight is a wickedly irreverent parody of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight, and is the only book telling Edward's version of Twilight. More faithful to the original story than any other parody, Edward's Twilight is the only book to parody Twilight as written by Stephenie Meyer. Set in the eccentric town of Full Moon, Washington, the alternate universe of Twilight's Forks, and narrated by Edward Cullen himself in the voice of his alter ego, Edwin Dullen, Edward's Twilight entertainingly recreates Meyer's vampire tale as Edwin Dullen and Jezebella Penguin mercilessly spoof the wacky relationship between Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. Nothing is off limits as Edwin and Jezebella serve up witty commentary on Meyer's characters, writing, and all things Twilight. 


Editorial Reviews

From the Author

A short interview with Joseph Veillon, author of Edward's Twilight. 

How did you come to write Edward's Twilight?  
 
My interest in Twilight began when a friend loaned me her Twilight DVD. I watched it three times over one weekend, and then I borrowed her copy of the book. I knew nothing about Twilight before that, but I was definitely hooked before I finished reading the book. I got on Amazon and ordered my own copies of all four books. During the next few weeks I read and reread the entire saga, and I spent a lot of time reading about Twilight on the internet. I basically immersed myself in the world of Twilight. I eventually found out about the unfinished Midnight Sun, and that Stephenie had apparently put it on indefinite hold. I also learned that in spite of Midnight Sun being shelved, Stephenie's millions of fans were not letting it go. It was amazing.        
 

In my naiveté, I decided that I would finish Midnight Sun, and I began writing Edward's Twilight. At that time, Edward's Twilight was not a parody. I did not set out to write a spoof of Twilight. In its original form, Edward's Twilight was a straightforward retelling of Twilight from Edward's viewpoint. It was meant to be the Midnight Sun that Stephenie might have written. However, it was not to be. After I had already written several chapters, I learned, much to my mortification, that I could not publish my story without infringing on Stephenie Meyer's copyright. That was a huge disappointment. For a while, I thought that was it, but then I had the idea to write Edward's Twilight as a parody.
 

Twilight and Stephenie Meyer are such a huge phenomenon. What made you think that you could step in and write Midnight Sun?
 
The whole idea was really very intimidating. After all, this was Stephenie Meyer and Twilight. I had never published anything and I was a complete unknown, but so was Stephenie Meyer before Twilight. But I knew the Twilight story thoroughly and I decided that I could write Midnight Sun just as well as the next person. I know, it sounds outrageous. I wanted to read Edward's version just as much as everyone else did. You literally could not have a discussion of Twilight without someone bringing up Midnight Sun. There was nothing more important in the entire Twilight universe, except the not yet released Breaking Dawn movie. That was very powerful motivation. I simply decided that I would finish Midnight Sun, and I started writing. It really was that simple. Crazy, right?
 

You began Edward's Twilight as a straight up retelling of Twilight from Edward's viewpoint. Was it difficult to rewrite it as a parody?
 
To turn Edward's Twilight into a parody, I had to add a humorous or critical slant to several things. For the most part, the humor is low-key and built on subtle references to specific passages in Twilight. Not all of the humor jumps right out at you. That means the reader has to remember Twilight pretty well to fully appreciate Edward's Twilight.

The most difficult part of writing Edward's Twilight as a parody was finding a way to include some of the issues that were out there without coming across like I was bashing Twilight and Stephenie Meyer. Using that material has caused quite an uproar among some of her fans, but a lot of people have misunderstood those passages. I did not invent the controversies swirling around Twilight. Those issues were already out there long before I wrote Edward's Twilight. I wanted to acknowledge those issues in a humorous way, which is why I wrote about them in such an overblown, exaggerated manner. Edwin and Jezebella's overwrought dialogue was meant to show that those issues were being mocked, not endorsed.

Making that work turned out to be more difficult than I expected. Some have said that the mocking in Edward's Twilight went too far. I leave readers to decide that for themselves, but Edward's Twilight was not written with malice. Stephenie Meyer created a very special world for her fans, and it's something that those fans care about passionately. I have a lot of appreciation and respect for her effort.

At the time you were writing Edward's Twilight, there were other Twilight parodies already available. Did you worry that Edward's Twilight might be seen as just another Twilight parody?
 
The parodies out there at the time mostly had very little to do with Twilight. Even though some parts of my story are different for copyright reasons, Edward's Twilight follows Stephenie's story very closely. Edward's Twilight is unique as the only book to parody Twilight as written by Stephenie Meyer, and it is the first true Twilight parody published anywhere. Most notably, Edward's Twilight is the first and only book telling Edward's version of Twilight. It is very different from any other Twilight parody.
 

As of November 1, 2014, Edward's Twilight has been the #1 Twilight parody on Amazon for the past 24 consecutive months. For the same 24 consecutive months, Edward's Twilight has ranked in the Top Ten of all parodies on Amazon. And, without a doubt, Edward's Twilight has been the most controversial of all the Twilight parodies. Edward's Twilight has definitely never been "just another Twilight parody." 
 

I'm very thankful for the success of Edward's Twilight. It has done amazingly well, in spite of my flaws as a writer. I'd like to express a sincere thank you to everyone who has purchased and read Edward's Twilight. It is those readers who have made all of this possible.

Has Stephenie Meyer made any comment about Edward's Twilight?
She has not made any comment that I know of. I'd like to think that Stephenie understands Edward's Twilight, but I'm probably not on her list of favorite people. I definitely would like to know what she thinks about Edward's Twilight, though. It would be really cool to talk Twilight with Stephenie over lunch one day. That would surely be an interesting conversation.

From the Back Cover

My fiendish hunger for Jezebella was urgent. Her scent was sweeter than any human I had ever smelled and I eventually dared to creep a few inches more toward her side of the table. My self-control quivered as I struggled to choke back my desire and restrain my desperate urges. I was deranged with longing and frenzied with sinful desire for this luscious human creature. As my body convulsed with lust I could feel myself channeling the spirits of the great vampire masters - Lugosi, Lee, Hamilton, Murphy, Nielsen, Count von Count.

4.0 out of 5 stars Learn to Read November 21, 2012
Format:Paperback
Most of the negative comments on this book are because they did not actually read the description before purchasing it.

This novel is a PARODY - and a very good one. I am a Twilight fan, and I was even laughing through it all. This is NOT the leaked Midnight Sun, I don't know why someone would even think to make that connection. This follows the story/plotline that Stephenie Meyers created in Twilight, however it IS a parody and makes light-hearted fun at several shortcomings of the original novels (ones that ANYONE should be able to see).

Overall, whether you enjoyed Twilight or not, if you want a good laugh - I recommend this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really? February 11, 2013
By SEN
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I knew this was a parody when I bought it, however I thought it would be a good parody. Turns out it's so silly I felt like I was wasting my time on this one. Seems to be from the point of a second grader and a vulgar one at that! Even 2.99 is too much for this book. Just say no. Just no

It's silly and made me laugh, but I think the author tried to hard to make fun of an already easy character to make fun of (not from the Twilight books(I loved the books), but the movies).

1.0 out of 5 stars not October 15, 2014
By JLA
Format:Kindle Edition
Sorry Stephanie Meyer wannabe but this is a failed attempt. What a disappointment! The puns were really cheesy and not at all catchy. If you want to take notes on how to do a successful attempt at a guy perspective as opposed to a woman's view try reading the last part of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. Now there is how to do it. This really felt like the cheesy puns spoken on the monster high cartoon. I couldn't tell it wasn't.

2.0 out of 5 stars A quick read with some very funny lines. January 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you've read the Twilight series, then you understand almost all of the references made in this story. There's a lot of detail, like in the books, but it detracts from the humor. If you have the time and a sense of humor, it might be worth a read through.

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh. May 15, 2014
By Chaos
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Underwhelming. As a Twilight fan I can see the humor in it, don't get me wrong, but this was just silly. It was as if the author was trying just a little too hard, sort of like some of the worst Weird Al Yankovic songs. After 15 minutes and the first few chapters, I gave up and returned it. It's not terrible, but seemed pointless. I prefer more subtlety in a piece like this, and there are far better examples of this exact concept to be found on popular fanfiction sites.
