Who is in charge of this project?
Nick (nikola-nickart) first approached Mel (pulseofblood) with the idea for this project.
Can I be involved?
Certainly! We are always looking for new people to help spread the word for this project. Soon we will have a button you can add to your website or blog. If you have previous experience with a similar project, please contact us.
Where can I contact you?
Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org. You can send us a message on this blog, too. Emails are easier to keep up with. If this project takes off, we will create Twitter and Facebook pages. Until then, we have our Tumblr.
Can international fans help?
Yes! Nick is from Austria/Serbia and Mel is from Georgia, USA so we believe everyone around the world should be involved.
What will happen if the project is not completed on time?
If we do not collect enough money or finish the project in time for the books to arrive on Christmas Eve, we will continue to create this book. We will send them to Stephenie as soon as we can. The books will be sent when they are completed. Shipping and purchasing will continue to be covered by money collected by PayPal donations. Any leftover donated money will be given to the Red Cross.
Why the Red Cross?
Stephenie Meyer supports the Red Cross. She has donated to it in the past by publishing The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. Each Bree Tanner book sold gave $1 to the Red Cross.
What is PayPal?
Paypal digitally stores money safely. When you donate, the money is securely put into a digital bank account. Donations will not be used until they are needed. Any unused donations will be sent to the Red Cross.
When can I donate?
We will open our PayPal account when we are sure that this project will take off. Until a steady flow of submissions come in, we will not be accepting donations. When we open the account is up to you!
How much can I donate?
Shipping should not be too pricey. We believe a minimum of $1 is required by PayPal. However, if you insist to donate more, you may. Any money that is not spend on shipping and purchasing the book will be donated to the Red Cross.
How much will shipping cost?
Shipping the books to Mel and Nick will be free. However, we will look over the books and gift wrap them before we send them to Stephenie. Shipping the books to Stephenie will cost money. Shipping cost depends on the weight of the books and where they are sent. When we finish putting the books together, we will find out how much shipping will cost. An estimate will soon be posted.
How much will purchasing the books cost?
Both Thank You, Stephenie Meyer books will be created on Lulu.com. We will likely purchase a hardcover book with standard paper from Lulu. We will likely purchase a casewrap hardcover with full color ink. A 8.25” x 10.75” book with 200 pages is $55. Thank You, Stephenie Meyer for fan art will be created on LuLu as well. Our estimate says that it will also cost around $55 dollars.
What are you looking for in fan art submissions?
We are looking for the best of the best. Your hard work you put in fan art will be appreciated. Submissions must be Twilight related. Drawings, manipulations, and graphics will be looked at. The fan art book will put a focus on main characters. We would like a mixture of Edward/Bella and Jacob/Bella. Minor characters and pairings will also be great! An example is Jasper/Alice. Art featuring the book covers would be wonderful as well!
Each artist will have one page for themselves in the book!
What are you looking for in thank you note submissions?
Firstly, we want proper grammar! We mainly want the letters to be honest. Tell Stephenie everything you have always wanted to tell her. Tell her how she helped you. Maybe she even saved your life! Tell her something that could make a grown man cry. You don’t have to pour your heart out, but you can tell her what you learned from Twilight.
Thank you notes must be in English. This is only because Stephenie, as far as we know, can only speak English. We are willing to help you write your note if you need help with your English!
Why the Ads on your blog?
We want to ensure that we will make enough money to complete this project. Like the donated money, if the money earned from Ads is not used we will donate it to the Red Cross.
