OMG U GUYZ. I, like, so totally cannot wait for Russet Noon to come out. I am going to buy it and cherish it forever and always, since it's totes for sale, and I can even pre-order it! Russet Noon is the Team Jacob tribute novel by Lady Sybilla that answers the question, "What happens after Breaking Dawn?"
After the twilight, a new moon is obscured by an eclipse. Then a breaking dawn appears to end it all. But, after the sun leaves the dawn behind to rise to its zenith, a russet noon begins with a new adventure.The author uses zomg big words so you know she must be crazy smart, so her book will be crazy awesome. Like, did you know "russet" means "reddish brown"? But it's so much awesomer-sounding than just saying "reddish brown"! I'm thrilled to bits!
Also, "Beware of half-truth accusations and find out about the actual facts on copyright laws." That's what Russet Noon's website told me, so I checked out their link to The Publishing Law Center's article on the protection of fictional characters:
you can't diminish Twilight characters much further, as Smeyer has done that herself this means that even if Smeyer cries and posts a flounce to her website, no one will give a shit! Legally, that is. Thirteen-year-old Team Edward fans would probably still whine like little babies.
[To prove infringement]... one must prove that there is a "substantial similarity" between the original fictional character and the infringing character.And taking the character's name, traits, and backstory totally doesn't count, you guys.
While there may still be some degree of uncertainty and inconsistency regarding the legal protection of graphic characters, the legal protection available for fictional characters is even less uncertain and more inconsistent... Courts are uncomfortable affording protection to fictional characters that they are unable to see.This means that Lady Sybilla is pretty sure she can get away with it! ;D
In addition, intellectual property law is usually used to prevent a diminution in the value of intellectual property... In fact, the most difficult aspect of protecting a fictional character is that one may be required to demonstrate that the value of the particular fictional character has decreased, and not that one has been harmed artistically since many courts would be unsympathetic to such a plea.Well
This article is not legal advice. You should consult an attorney if you have legal questions that relate to your specific publishing issues and projects.Like, I am sooooo sure that Lady Sybilla followed the advice in this disclaimer to a tee. She wrote a whole book, you guys! Clearly that means she knows what she's doing. I'm so excited for her, I might piss myself!
You can also tell she knows what she's doing because she put out a press release!
The Volturi are now watching the Cullens even closer, and a conspiracy is brewing deep within the catacombs of of Volterra.OMG IT'S GONNA BE THE BEST STORY EVER. I think I just crapped in my pants! From glee.
Aro is determined to put an end to Bella's happily ever after. He is obsessed with getting Renesmee to join his clan in Italy, while Edward and Bella refuse to make Renesmee a full vampire.
Renesmee hates herself for being only a half breed, and her unhappiness turns Bella against her own daughter.
Humans in Forks are starting to suspect something about the Cullens, and Renesmee's lack of self-control is to blame for it. Bella and Edward might have to leave Forks permanently to protect Nessie.
Meanwhile, the spirit warriors have returned to live among the Quileutes. Taha Aki has made contact with Jacob to warn him that great danger is coming to La Push.
Lady Sybilla is putting this book out there thanks to the help of AV Paranormal Publishing, an independent publisher in the Los Angeles area. I'm not even going to talk about their website, you should check it out yourself! Lady Sybilla posts their promos on her Youtube account! I'm so delighted, I'm vomiting blood!
And speaking of Youtube, you can listen to the preface of Russet Noon! I'm pulling out chunks of my hair from joy!
Maybe I should respond to this ad, seeking out a tall and muscular dude who appears Native American to model for a promotional website! Wait a sec, you mean they're not just gonna keep using 'shooped images of Taylor Lautner? OH WELLS. I'm so ecstatic, my eyes will probably pop out of my head when my brain explodes anyway!
