World-Wide Domination


Initially rejected by 14 agents, Twilight, written by Stephenie Meyer, was published in 2005 and within a month was #1 on the New York Times Best Sellers List. That same year, it was named one of Publishers Weekly's Best Children's Books. However, it wasn't until 2008 that Twilight-mania really took over. The book was the biggest novel of 2008, with the film following that same year. The book has sold over 17 million copies to date, while the film grossed $35.7 million on its opening day.
