We shared a new/old interview with Rob recently where he talked about 50 Shades, what scene in the whole Twilight series touched him the most, how he stays grounded and more. Click HERE to read if you missed it.
That interview came from a compilation of interviews in a new eBook titled, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart & Taylor Lautner – In their own words.
I purchased the eBook back when we posted and the material is very familiar - a collection of some of Rob's press interviews from 2008-2012 but the audio clips I enjoyed most. Many of them we haven't heard his voice saying the words but have read the words in print through the years. The $7.99 was worth it just to have the collection of audio.
Now the contest news!
The publishers, eBook People, have extended an offer to our readers to win a free copy of the ebook! We'll run a caption contest starting this Thursday, September 27th and go through the weekend, for a chance to win the extensive collection of interviews from Rob, Kristen and Taylor.
Here are a few audio samples of Rob (dated from 2008-2012) they sent us. There are roughly 20 from Rob in the actual eBook:
The press release explains more about the eBook:
After the great success with the release of Part 1 of the biggest eBook on The Rolling Stones ever (50 Years: The Rolling Stones – Views from the Inside, Views from the Outside, 1,000 pages, Part 2 to be released in 2013) only months ago, The eBook People GmbH (www.theebookpeople.com) have dedicated themselves to a new comprehensive publication: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart & Taylor Lautner – In their own words.
Weeks before the last installment of the Twilight Saga in mid-November a record-breaking eBook on the main cast members will hit online stores like iTunes, Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
“One of the most successful franchises in Hollywood history comes to an end and many fans are excited and confused at the same time”, says publisher Matthias Würfl. “It’s time to take a look back on the main cast members and characters, all the way from the first movie up to now. Of course, we were also surprised by the news of Rob and Kristen. You can never look into people’s minds and their real reasons. But some of the interviews that date back to 2008 appear in a different light now.”
The eBook contains more than 30 interviews with the cast from 2008 until now and runs over more than 300 pages on the Kindle. In addition, the eBook includes more than 100 images that are combined with audio quotes taken from interviews conducted with the stars.
For this project The eBook People teamed up with Paris-based American lifestyle journalist Talia Soghomonian. Her work has been featured in InStyle, Elle Girl, Rolling Stone Magazine, Maria Claire, NME, Rock Mag or Le Monde Mag. In the eBook the author analyzes the vampire cult, the phenomenon that is Twilight and takes a look at the cast from her own point of view – something that she is one of the best persons to do, as she has met Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner in person and has interviewed all of them various times.
“It’s an indispensable collection of original content for every fan, especially when watching all the parts of the series again”, says publisher Matthias Würfl. “And it comes with audio on the enhanced ePub version that runs on the iPad, for example. The Twihards we showed the eBook to – they were delighted.”
The Author: Talia Soghomonian started out in theater. It was while she was playing a rather pesky, fashion-conscious journalist that she decided to drop theater and “get serious.” After fashion design, she pursued journalism, the main reason being that she wanted to meet U2... She went on to meet some of the world’s biggest stars. Her work has been featured in NME, Rock Mag, Rolling Stone, InStyle, Marie Claire, Grazia, Elle Girl, Le Monde Mag, Guitar Part and Collider.com. She was also a staff writer at the French daily Metro where she wrote about film and music. Originally from Los Angeles, she currently resides in Paris where life is not always easy... Talia has a hard time resisting the chocolate, the architecture and the shoes.
The Publisher: In his former life as freelance journalist Matthias Würfl has interviewed stars including Pink, Carlos Santana, P.Diddy, Lionel Richie, Carla Bruni and Mick Jagger for titles like InStyle, Playboy and Glamour. He founded The Interview People GmbH (www.theinterviewpeople.com) in 2007 with Michael and Uli Karg. Today they work with outlets in 70 countries selling interviews, features and images from freelance journalists as well as prestigious publishing houses. Recently they have launched a new company, The eBook People (www.theebookpeople.com), which provides quality multimedia eBooks using material from their archives. Their first project was the successful release of Part 1 of a 2,000 pages eBook on The Rolling Stones.
