Pressmeddelande från Stephenie Meyer:


I have a new book coming out. It’s called The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. Well, it’s more of a novella than an actual book—my version of a short story.

Actually, this has been a surprise to me, too. The reason why it’s a surprise was that I never intended to publish this story as a stand-alone book. I began this story a long time ago—before Twilight was even released. Back then I was just editing Eclipse, and in the thick of my vampire world. I was thinking a lot about the newborns, imagining their side of the story, and one thing led to another. I started writing from Bree’s perspective about those final days, and what it was like to be a newborn.

This story was something that I worked on off and on for a while, just for fun, in between the times I was writing or editing other Twilight novels. Later, when the concept for The Twilight Saga: The Official Guide came up, I thought that might be a good place for Bree. Her story is a nice complement to Eclipse; it explains a lot of the things that Bella never knew. So I dusted it off and finished it up for placement in the Guide.

At the same time, it came in handy for the Eclipse film. Melissa (Rosenberg, the screenwriter) had a ton of questions about what exactly was going on in Seattle, how Victoria managed things, what Riley was like, etc. I let her read what I had then, and later gave the whole thing to the director, David Slade. David asked if Xavier, Bryce, and Jodelle (Riley, Victoria, and Bree) could read it as well, so all the parties involved would end up having a really strong foundation for their characters before the cameras started rolling. I was pleased that this side of the story would make it into the film and was looking forward to including it in the Guide.

Then I got the news: my “short story” was nearly 200 pages long when typeset. It was too long to fit into the Guide—without ending up with a tome as heavy as the Oxford English Dictionary. My publisher approached me with the idea of releasing the Bree story on its own. One of the major benefits of this plan was that it would be out before the movie, so people would get to know Bree before they saw her in the film. That made sense to me, and we decided to go ahead with it.

There was one thing I asked for: since this story had always been an extra for me, and was meant to be released with the Guide, I wanted to be able to offer it to my fans for free. You all have bought a ton of my books, and I wanted to give you this story as a gift. My publisher was awesome and embraced this idea. We still wanted to also produce a physical book with a cool cover (see below) that you can add to your set if you like, but starting at noon on June 7th until July 5th, it will also be available online at

One other aspect of this release is the plan to give a more important gift to people who really need it. One dollar of each book purchased in the US from the first printing will be donated to the American Red Cross for their relief efforts in Haiti and Chile and other parts of the world where people are in great need. We’re going to have an option online as well, so you can choose to make a donation if you want when you read the story online. I hope you will. I think that we can really help a lot of people with this.

I really hope you all enjoy this story. I had a blast writing it. I’m glad that after all this time cooling her heels in my files, Bree finally gets her chance to shine.

Thanks for all the support,

Volturi-frågor till Stephenie Meyer

Q.  Are the Volturi the whole group, or does that name only apply to Marcus, Aro, and Caius?

A.  The Volturi are just Aro, Marcus, Caius, and two females who never go out.  There were six of them originally, but Marcus lost his mate in a battle.  That loss, over the centuries, turned him into the apathetic zombie he is today.  The guard are not technically Volturi, though the name still applies loosely.

Q.  Can you tell us more about them?

A.  Aro is freakishly curious. He keeps the histories, and new stories are one of his favorite things.

Marcus’s gift is actually quite valuable in the hands of someone who knows how to use it (coughArocough). For example, imagine Marcus on the battle field. He sees the binding ties between the enemy the guard faces. He can tell who the leader is just by watching the way the others are tied to him or her. He can see how to destroy the resistance simply by picking off a few key people. He doesn’t just see romantic relationships, but also ties of family and friends, loyalty and devotion. He can tell if any given person would die for another. Off the field of battle (as the Volturi rarely leave their home), Marcus’s gift is valuable politically (for lack of a better word). It’s an amazing gift in a diplomatic situation. Plus, when you’re sitting on an empire, it’s nice to be able to see when someone’s loyalty starts wavering. Or if anyone is getting too fond of anyone else. Can you see the potential now? Marcus didn’t get where he is with some fluff skill.

Twilight Author Sued for Plagiarism

Vet ej när detta skrevs tyvärr..

In very shocking news Stephenie Meyer is being sued by the author of 'The Nocturne' Jordan Scott. Apparently Jordan Scott claims that passages in Breaking Dawn are ripped off from his ( I believe it s a him ) book. YahooNews is reporting that the similarities are according to the Authors Lawyer;

  • Both Books have a wedding
  • Both books have sex on a beach
  • Both books have a scene where the character discusses the experience of going from human to a vampire
  • Both books have the lead vampire character referring to their wife as 'love'.

I do not know the facts and I have not even read any of the Twilight books but to me this seems a bit of a stretch. The author is apparently not suing for money but is filing a copyright infringementlawsuit in US Court next week. Has anyone read The Nocturne? Thoughts? Comments? I went on Amazon in an effort to learn more about the book but its not for sale on Amazon.

Update: Seems all it took was a copyright search to throw a whole lot of doubt on this lawsuit. The fantastic folks at TwilightLexicon did a copyright search on Forever Dawn ( the books original name ) and Jordan Scott ( who is a SHE not a HE As pointed out by Nicole below ) and guess what was found? Forever Dawn was copyrighted in 2004 and The Nocturne? 2008. Little bit of a date problem for this claim to hold water it would seem.
