Twilight Publisher: Meyer Has No Plans to Return to Series
With the novella ‘The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner’ just a few short hours away from release, her publisher has said that Stephenie has no plans to return to the series.
As Twilight Examiner rightly say,
The release of Stephenie Meyer‘s fifth Twilight series book, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella, is just a few short hours away.
When the news of the Bree Tanner novella came out, Stephenie Meyer blogged about it on her site, mentioning that it was “too long to fit into the Guide” and that this was why it was ultimately deemed worthy of independent publication.
Of course, that insinuated Meyer would be releasing The Twilight Saga: The Official Guide at some point soon as well, but still no official release date or information is available on that project.
Still, the lingering hope with many Twilight fans is that not only will the Guide be released, but she’ll also continue working on the left-behind project which shall not be named.
A recent interview with Little, Brown Books publisher Megan Tingley, however, indicates once again that this is an unlikely case.
“At this point Stephenie does not have plans to return to the saga,” she said.
As the manuscript for this project is presumed still incomplete, this could mean that the project will never see (finished) the light of day.
The insiders guide was originally set for release in December 2008, 4 months after Breaking Dawn hit the shops. After personally pre ordering this and it disappearing from my list, I did wonder if it would ever become a reality. As for the book that Twi Ex politely say ‘should not be named’ well, I shan’t be holding my breath.
