Has the Twilight bubble burst?

Stephenie Meyer's vampire-romance novel series, TWILIGHT, sounds as if it may be following the path of all true vampires - withering in the light of day.

Stephenie found incredible success with her books – until this latest offering. Fans have been clambering to get the book – couldn’t wait – signs of hysteria.

On Yahoo Answers, the Books & Authors forum was innundated for weeks with young girls talking nothing but Twilight Twaddle. As the day for the new release drew closer the Twilight Twaddle increased. Now, however, the bubble seems to have burst.

Breaking Dawn, the latest in the Twilight series, sold 1.3 million copies in its first day—quite an accomplishment for something that didn’t have Harry Potter strung across the title. However, disappointed teenagers have been taking their copies back in droves. In fact, one FORMER Stephenie Meyer fan, has launched an angry campaign to return the books to Amazon.

Does this mean Ms Meyer has seen the end of her fabulous run of success?

Will fans really turn from her? They're very unforgiving these readers. It’s happened before and I’ve no doubt, it’ll happen again. Once they’re faced with disappointment, readers tend to drift to other authors - they’re a fickle lot – especially the younger element.

I know. I’ve done it myself.
