Before Stephanie Meyer wrote Twilight, there were line of Sweet Dreams pocketbooks (and Sweet Valley High) that talk about young and (less complicated) romance. I am feeling nostalgic today and thought of sharing with you the young romantic pocketbooks I grew up with!
I’m sure that some of you have a collection of them. I used to have a lot but I lost them all somehow in between moves but I kind of missed them today.
One of my fond memories about Sweet Dreams was that I wrote to Barbara Conklin, author of P.S. I Love You when I was around 12ish or younger. She amazingly wrote me back using a typewriter and that was the thrill of my life! Imagine if you write to Stephanie Meyer and she writes back personally thanking you for reading her book? I guess in this age of time, that doesn’t happen anymore. Stephanie Meyer’s website even says “Stephenie is still much too busy to re-open her fan email or snail mail addresses. She is in the process of writing/editing multiple books, and I think we can all agree that we would rather that she spends her time writing instead of reading thousands of emails every day.” (source: http://www.stepheniemeyer.com/webmaster.html) I guess that’s understandable. The woman is far more successful than many authors in history.
So what are you Sweet Dream Pocketbook memories?
