No New Episode This Week

Hey everyone!

I know that we normally put up a new episode every Wednesday, but there will be no new episode this week. I am really sorry but our schedules didn't allow us time to get together to record an episode this week. It's really a bummer, too, because there's finally some really exciting book and movie news to discuss! Don't worry though, we will DEFINITELY talk about the Twilight clip shown at the MTV Movie Awards, the first chapter of Breaking Dawn, and the cover art of Breaking Dawn on the next episode. It should be up by next Wednesday (June 11th).

On another note, we finally recieved a couple of e-mails! Thank you so much to those that sent one to us. To everyone else, PLEASE send us your thoughts, comments, and questions! They can relate to a previous episode, or they can just be comments on the new Twilight Clip and Breaking Dawn 1st chapter. What did you guys think? Also, please feel free to recommend main discussion topics and "Vampire or Werewolf?" segment questions. You can send your emails to forksandfangs@gmail.com.

Also, I mentioned on our very first episode that some of my friends from the band Just Plain Sexy were going to write and record a song exclusively for our podcast so that we could use it as an intro song. They have written it and I was lucky enough to hear it live last week! It is awesome and I know you all will love it. They are going to record it soon, so you will be able to hear the song soon as well! If you want to hear more music from Just Plain Sexy in the meantime, you can visit their myspace page at http://www.myspace.com/justplainsexy20. Lucas, the main guitarrist for the band also records his own songs. You can visit his solo page on myspace at http://www.myspace.com/loyaltothetruth.

So that's it for this update. Keep spreading the word about our podcast! If your friends don't read Twilight, get them hooked on it and then tell them to tune in to Forks and Fangs as well! Don't forget to befriend us on myspace and join our facebook group! Thanks everyone!

Always your host,
Christi

Another Update

Hey!

I just wanted to let everyone know that we are planning on recording our next episode this Saturday. That means that hopefully the next episode will be up late Monday or sometime Tuesday. Don't worry- we are serious about keeping up with the shows and getting one new episode up about the same time each week. Remember, we have just started this podcast and it is a little hectic right now because the school year is ending (as in it hasn't ended quite yet for the hosts). The first episode was just a trial run to make sure everything worked right. You can expect episodes to be uploaded regularly starting with the next one. Thanks for being patient! In the meantime, keep spreading the word about our podcast! Also, feel free to email us (forksandfangs@gmail.com) to suggest discussion topics for the show or segment ideas.

By the way, Ramya and I attended The Host event in Tempe, AZ last night. We asked the lady who was introducing Stephenie Meyer to promote our podcast, and she did- but she accidentally called it "Forks and things" instead of Forks and Fangs. If you found this podcast because you heard the lady say this at the signing event last night, you are at the right place! You found us! f you were there last night also, please email in your comments about it!

We will definitely be talking about the event on our next episode and much, much more, so make sure to tune in!

Thanks,
Christi

Update

Hey everyone!

First of all, I wanted to announce that Forks and Fangs is now officially on itunes! You can most easily find it by searching "Forks and Fangs" or pretty much any other word related to Twilight.

Also, I wanted to let you know some things about the website.

From now on, I will only be posting show notes in the blogs that are about new episodes.
I changed the content of our first blog to only include the show notes. Therefore, I am moving important info from that blog to this one.

To listen to our podcasts online, click on the title of the post. You can download each episode by subscribing to it on itunes (that is the easiest way in my opinion). You can also subscribe through the RSS feed on this website (orange button on the right side of the page). Finally, you can also sign up for e-mail updates when we post new episodes by entering your e-mail address on the right side of the page as well.

We hope you'll tune in to our first episode and enjoy! Please leave comments about how you like the show and what you want to hear us talk about in upcoming episodes. You can also e-mail us your thoughts, comments, questions, concerns, hopes, dreams, aspirations, and expectations at forksandfangs@gmail.com. Please tell all of your friends and family who love Twilight to download and subscribe to the show! If they don't read Twilight, get them started on the series and then reccomend the Forks and Fangs podcast to them! Thanks!

Always your host,
Christi
