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.
