I realize that Stephen King is a very talented author. I've never read his stuff (not a fan of horror), but I can see for myself that he is iconic. Surely, he knows a good writer when he sees one. As far as I'm concerned, if an author can sell millions of copies of her books, she's good. Something about her writing makes people want to read it. That makes her good. Most authors (including myself) would rather sell a bunch of books than be praised as a gifted writer. The readers say it all. Saying that Stephenie is a bad writer is insulting half of America's taste in books. And I don't think that's a wise thing for an author to do. With all due respect to Stephen King, he needs to back off. He's not the intended audience for Twilight, and just because a book doesn't appeal to him, doesn't mean it isn't appealing.
Let's check Stephenie's sales shall we? I think that says it all.
Happiness is mine. Chapter 9 is finally done.
