Interesting story behind the Twilight series

From the Twilight Wikipedia Page:

 

Publication

Twilight was initially rejected by 14 agents,[28] however, eight publishers competed for the rights to publish Twilight in the 2003 auction.[23] Little, Brown and Company originally bid for $300,000, but Meyer’s agent asked for $1 million; the publishers finally settled on $750,000 for three books.[29] Twilight was published in 2005 with a print run of 75,000 copies.[23] It debuted at #5 on the New York Times Best Seller list within a month of its release,[5] and later peaked at #1.[6] Foreign rights to the novel were sold to over 26 countries.[30]

In October 2008, Twilight was ranked #26 in USA Today‘s list of “Bestselling Books of Last 15 Years”.[31] Later, the book went on to become the best-selling book of 2008.[32] and the second biggest selling of 2009, only behind its sequel New Moon.[33]
