“Dusk, the New York Times best seller by Edward Cullen, tells the fantastical life of a young, mind reading, vampire (Anthony) and his ‘family’. The book starts its story in 1918 during World War One and continues up to modern day. New family members and danger are constantly being thrown in creating intense drama and anticipation. This sexy tale will keep you up late at night, as you go crazy for Cullen’s twisting plot and brooding characters.” – Teen Vogue

This is my life, or rather existence. To the outside world I am a literary genius. A seventeen year old boy whose stories have sold millions of copies world wide.
A normal teenager who lives at home with his parents, a doctor and a stay at home mom, and his other adopted siblings.
A normal boy, who plays sports, gets good grades, eats food by the fridge full, parties at night and sleeps in late on the weekend (who just happens to be a best selling author). But this isn’t the real me, I’m not normal.
While the majority of that stuff is true it is only a disguise, a hoax, to throw people off. In reality I am the monster in my books, I don’t eat, sleep, or even age for that matter. I have killed; I have caused pain and have without a doubt lost every lost shred of my morality.
I am Anthony Mason, Edward Anthony Mason Cullen for that matter, and those books are not only stories, not fiction nor fantasy, they are my journals, my life and all of my horrid mistakes. I am not a normal boy, I am a vampire, and those books hold my life’s story.
I thought I had hidden my tacks well, covered any outright, obvious thing that made the stories relate to me or my family. I switched around coloring, characteristics, and names of the couples. Rosalie Hale became Lillian Whitlock with long brown hair while Emmett turned into Everett and became a blond.
I smudged a few locations and rounded specific dates, keeping only our own history factual, along with the characteristics of vampirism. Even the Volturi had yet to catch on.
But apparently it had not been enough; apparently I had failed because it only took Isabella Swan one second to discover what we truly are. It took her one second to discover the secret that would bring us to our knees, and it was in that one second that I started to live again.
