Review time! Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.
I admire Stephenie. All right, I'm jealous of her too. She's managed to go national where all the money is. Let's face it, few authors make money, fewer still if you publish in the LDS world. The readership is just too small to support an author.
What I would love to see is LDS characters being accepted nationally, like Catholic and Jewish characters are.
But it would take an author who has already broken into the national market and been wildly successful with a strong readership to do it.
And I suspect that at this point Stephenie is enjoying the ride. It's good to see and LDS author join Anne Perry and Orson Scott Card in the mainstream.
