Stephenie Meyer made a surprise announcement via her official website this morning: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, which chronicles the last human days and first “newborn” days of Bree (Jane’s unfortunate victim in Eclipse), will be published this summer. The book – which was originally written as background information for the author, never to be released – will be available to the public for free on it’s own official website, http://www.breetanner.com between June 7th and July 5th. (You can pre-order the book from Amazon). It will then be made available for purchase in a hardcover edition, with a retail price of $13.99. $1.00 for each book sold will be donated to the American Red Cross International Response Fund. The full press release, including details about the premise for the books, can be found at this link.
While I’m sure this is exciting news for most Twilight fans, I’m sure I’m not the only one wondering: would Stephenie Meyer please go ahead and finish Midnight Sun??
