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.
She originally meant to include it in the Twilight Saga: Official Guide book, but it eventually became too long so they’re releasing it on its own. It’ll be available in book form but also online — for free! Of each book bought, though, one dollar will go to the Red Cross.
You can read the full story from Stephenie here, including how she gave the manuscript to David Slade and Melissa Rosenberg to help them on the Eclipse movie. Very cool!12Post a Comment
