“The Storytellers — New Voices of The Twilight Saga” was motivated by the desire to provide new female voices with an opportunity to be heard. Lionsgate, Tongal, Facebook, Volvo Cars, and Women in Film, along with Stephenie Meyer, are bringing you the chance to create Short Films set in the Twilight universe. Exploring the origin stories of characters from The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide, these Short Films will be set in the dynamic world of Twilight. Don’t be afraid to let your imagination run wild. Our hope is to see a variety of styles, genres and interpretations.

The campaign will center on a multiphase contest culminating in the selection of up to six aspiring female filmmakers to direct short films based on characters from the Twilight universe. The films will be produced and directed with the mentorship of a blue chip panel of advisors, which will ultimately select the winning shorts that will premiere exclusively on the Facebook platform next year. The star-studded group of female panelists will include Stephenie Meyer, actress Kristen Stewart, Academy Award winners Kate Winslet and Octavia Spencer, Jennifer Lee, the award-winning writer and co-director of Disney’s global blockbuster Frozen, Emmy Award-winning actress Julie Bowen, and Women in Film President Cathy Schulman.

summer-on-east-end-triple-moon_612x925

Fans of Lifetime’s Witches of East End, based on the book series by Melissa de la Cruz, haven’t given up hope that they’ll see the Beauchamp family again after the network canceled the show Nov. 4. But if the online petitions and multiple hashtags don’t work to resurrect the drama—fans are mobilizing Nov. 6 to trend #RenewWitchesOfEastEnd from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.—de la Cruz might be able to ease the pain of those unresolved cliffhangers.

On July 14, Putnam will publish the first book in the YA spinoff series. Triple Moon: Summer on East End, set 10 years after Winds of Salem, introduces two new teen witches, Mardi and Molly Overbrook, the twin daughters of Troy Overbrook (Thor). They’re sent to live with their “Aunt” Ingrid Beauchamp in North Hampton, after they cause a terrible accident at their old high school. As Ingrid teaches them to control their magical impulses so the White Council won’t exile them to Limbo, the girls meet the younger Gardiner boys and spend the summer learning how to grow up, how to love, and how to be a family.

Since other characters from the Witches of East End book and TV series make appearances in Triple Moon, including Freya and Killian Gardiner, de la Cruz sees a unique opportunity. “I have asked producers if there is no hope for the show, if I can weave in some of the cliffhangers from season two so I can resolve them and bring closure,” she tells EW, emailing from a plane on her way to Yallfest to promote Heart of Dread: Stolen, the sequel to Frozen, out Nov. 18. “I have an idea on how to do it, but we’ll see. It’s a legal issue so it might not be able to fly.”

The fan response to the show’s cancellation has been “a great comfort,” she adds. “I have no idea if it will make a difference, but who knows? It’s amazing to hear from so many people who love the show.”

De la Cruz is also currently developing her historical fantasy book The Ring and the Crown into a TV show with Debra Fisher, who was a writer and producer on Witches of East End. “It’s another great show about four strong women in a magical world! It’s so much fun and so sexy!” she says.

Her Disney book, Isle of the Lost: A Descendants novel is out May 5, 2015, with a Disney Channel original movie to follow in August.

5. The scope of the project is massive. A huge camp of trailers greeted me when I pulled up to the Tura Castle, outside Budapest. I was surprised by the number of people working this movie. Around 200 cast and crew members have a job for months, partly because I sat down one day in a little farmhouse in Winters, CA, with the strange notion that an angel might fall in love with a mortal girl.

4. The casting is perfect. I expected to feel some rift between the characters in the novel and the actors portraying them. But when they all walked toward me for the first time, I let myself imagine they were angels and demons. That wouldn’t have been possible if they hadn’t been cast so well.

3. Actors can step into The Zone more quickly than writers. I require an hour of very focused window-staring before I can start writing, but I learned my first night on set how deft actors are at slipping in and out of character. I was having a conversation with Joely Richardson about a book we’d both adored when director Scott Hicks called her to set. Joely straightened her spine, tightened her expression, and Miss Sophia stalked away from me.

2. Scenes take unexpected directions. When I sit down to write a scene, I have a plan in mind, and I’m thrilled when a character disregards my goals and takes the story to a place I hadn’t imagined. On set, I saw that Scott Hicks welcomes this experience, too. He told me about a scene in which he thought the camera’s focus would be on Joely (Miss Sophia). After they’d shot the scene, he saw that Lola Kirke (Penn) was “emotionally peaking.” Scott shouted, “Roll!” just in time to capture an essential tear sliding down Penn’s cheek, never meant to be in the movie.

1. There’s a moment in the movie that would be wonderful in the book. Readers beg me not to let the movie stray from the book. I assure them that everyone working on the film agrees. But there is one new moment in the film that is so economical and so moving, it would have worked beautifully if it were in the novel. I hope my fans will think of this added scene like one of the “extra” chapters that accompany the Fallen books. I can’t wait for you to experience all of it on the big screen.

Melissa de la Cruz is taking her Blue Bloods series to a whole new level with her new novel, Vampires of Manhattan, which is out now.

19661080

De la Cruz is transitioning the series from the Young Adult genre — traditionally for a more teen audience — to New Adult. The move is bold, since the New Adult genre is relatively new and still breaking into the book market. Novels of this genre typically follow characters in their early 20s and explore elevated themes, especially sex. Vampires of Manhattan won’t disappoint on that front.

De la Cruz said her favorite scene in the book happens when “Mimi and Kingsley reunited, because it’s so electric! Those two have so much chemistry!”

While the love story and sex is a big part of what makes Vampires of Manhattan part of the new adult genre, that isn’t all. The novel explores story lines with heartbreak, career challenges and death with paranormal characters.

“I think maybe the hardest part was letting go of their teen selves,” de la Cruz says of transitioning the characters from Young Adult to New Adult, “especially for Oliver, who’s changed a lot. He had transformed so much that, at some point, I was really worried about him. But he’s the Oliver we know and love in the end.”

With New Adult, de la Cruz was also able to create a different level of excitement around her characters and delve deeper into their personal lives as they become adults.

De la Cruz explained that she started writing the book exactly as readers will see in the opening chapter with Ara. “I wanted to create a new badass vampire character and she sprung to mind immediately.”

Vampires of Manhattan tells Ara’s story, beginning 10 years after the Blue Bloods defeated Lucifer. In the new peace and prosperity among vampires, coven leader, Oliver, holds the Four Hundred Ball, with all of society in attendance. And then we discover that things may not be as peaceful and prosperous as we thought as all hell breaks loose.

De la Cruz said the book’s big twist came as a surprise to even her. “Let’s just say the twist came very late in the writing of the book. I had a different ending, but once I stumbled upon this plot twist, I liked it so much I rewrote the book to match.”

Aside from Vampires of Manhattan, de la Cruz has several other projects in the pipeline. She told us she’s working on “a new book set in the world of Witches of East End that I can’t talk about yet as it hasn’t been announced.”

De la Cruz also teased what’s to come on the Lifetime series based on her Witches of East End books. “I can’t spoiler anything! But there is a really fun Freya and Killian plot in the 1800s that’s coming up and I was there when they filmed it. Also, the season finale is amazing and heartbreaking. The show just keeps getting better and better.”

The author is also already working on Vampires of Manhattan 2, among a handful of other titles, though she didn’t say when she expected the novel to be released.

“I just couldn’t let go of my Blue Bloods,” de la Cruz explained, “I love them. I grew up with the characters and I wanted to see what happened to them after the great finale.”

Fans and new readers will agree: Vampires of Manhattan definitely fills the void and then some.
