Stephenie Meyer is the #26 Most Powerful Celebrity

Forbes has released their list of The World’s Most Powerful Celebrities, and Stephenie Meyer is up at #26, ahead of both David Beckham and Miley Cyrus! Congratulations Stephenie, you deserve it!

Thanks to the success of Meyer's Twilight series, 2008 became the
year of the vampire. The low-profile author sold 29 million books last year, releasing two new novels (Breaking Dawn and The Host) and selling hoards ofpaperbacks of what have become instant classics (Twilight, Eclipse and NewMoon). Last November, gothy fans camped out to catch the first film based on theseries; Twilight grossed $70 million opening weekend. A partial rough draft of the fifth Twilight book leaked online last August; Meyer published the full draft on her Web site and announced the book wouldn't be published.
Thanks for the tweet, TwilightersAnonymous!
