Jo is a shortened version of her first name. It is not a typo and is derived directly from Stephen King's quote! (See below). It saying Jo is COMPLETELY intended.
"Both Rowling and Meyer, they're speaking directly to young people... The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can't write worth a darn. She's not very good."(Access Hollywood, 2009)
I know there's another stamp similar to this, but that one added their opinion at the end.
This is a simple stamp that plainly has the quote from Stephen King.
Considering the mass amount of people who love Harry Potter, Twilight, and those who don't..I ask everyone to be respectful.Especially towards one another.
Any flammatory comments will be marked as spam and removed from view.
Also anything that resembles a person smashed their head on the keyboard while trying to type it.
Just to be prim and proper, I cite my resource.

I watched an episode of Jeopardy a while back, and the question went: "Who is the person who sold over (huge number) millions of copies of their books on vampires?" or something to that effect.
One guy says: "Anne Rice", which I COMPLETELY agreed with. I love her Vampire Chronicles!
A woman answers: "Stephanie Meyer" and it was correct. WTF is wrong with the world.
I totally agree with your and his opinion.
S. Meyer writes BORING books.
I used to like Twilight, New Moon, ect.
When I was like, twelve.
Now that I'm a new-found hopeless romantic, I realize it's not a very good romance. It seems forced to me, now. It amuses and confuses me that the most unrelatable and wooden characters in the book where the two mains. The other characters I don't have an issue with. But when you screw up the mains... erk.
However, I do like Meyer's The Host, so I know she's got some talent somewhere.
And I've only actually read Breaking Dawn, and I agree with this stamp.
I read one of the reviews on Twilight and it said "Move over, Harry Potter." and I just about burned my computer.
BUT TWILIGHT WAS MUCH, MUCH WORSE.
And if Stephen King said so then it must be true. xD
Rowling is just a 100x times better. Meyer is nothing. I'll be honest here, I've read like, the first chapter of a Twilight book -- and it was just... blargh. And when I read the Harry Potter book, I actually laughed at the humor that Rowling added there. Seriously, it's cheering up. HP is the very first book I've ever read, and I couldn't even find a word to describe how awesome it is.
I'm not sure Stephen King is the best one to judge though. XD Some of his stuff is just as bad-- at least he has good books and stories to make up for those.
Meyers is just a hack
I LOVE STEPHEN KING- I have most of his books and I have watched all of his films as he is amazing.
J.K Rowling is awesome, he books are imaginative and funny. They have so much story and laughs and have something for everyone. I have all the books, films and have met a character from the series/
So.... in conclusion, lets give Stephen King a cookie, yeah Stephenie is good, but King and Rowling are awesome
