New Twilight Saga Novella Announced for Release in June

Stephenie Meyer has thrown us loyal fans a Twilight-sized bone. According to her website, a new novella, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, will be published on June 5, 2010. This release is the first new material from Stephenie in two years and is timed perfectly to prepare all of us for the theatrical release of Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

This novella promises to give us an insiders viewpoint of the newborns and Victoria/Riley during Eclipse. Read Stephenie's entire statement and press release on her personal website.

Preorder information is forthcoming and this post will be updated when the information is available. The book has another breathtaking cover, as seen below. Also, one dollar from each book sold out of the first printing will go to the American Red Cross.

What is the best part of this announcement? The book will be available online for free from June 7 through July 5, as a thank you to Stephenie Meyer's fans. You can access the novella at http://www.breetanner.com/.

After your collective sqeeing has died down, what are you looking forward to learning about the newborns? Are you going to preorder a copy or just read it for free online? Or do you say "Who cares about Bree? Where's Midnight Sun already?!?" Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

UPDATE: The novella is available for preorder from Amazon and Barnes and Noble. This price is around $9. I preordered mine!!!

Here's my opinion on the matter. I'm excited that we will be getting some new material out of Stephenie Meyer that is from the Twilight Saga. I am really surprised that this was kept so secret. Everything seems to be leaked on the internet these days. On Stephenie Meyer's website, there is a picture of one of the Eclipse actress' burned and soaked copy of the manuscript. I'm sure Stephenie has learned her lesson with Midnight Sun and had a thick document they had to sign before getting their hot little hands on it.

This gives me hope that Stephenie Meyer has been secretly working on Midnight Sun and it will be sprung on us just like this novella was. Her camp has proven they can keep things quiet and we won't even see it coming. I predict the internet and twitter will simultaneously fail if that press release comes out!


  1. I hope hope hope and pray that you are right and Midnight Sun will just spring at us. Maybe after BD the movie(s) is out? To prolong the hype, don't know.

    But in the meantime those are awesome news and this cover is just amazing!! Can't wait to read and review it!

  2. I have to say, I think you're right. She's learned her lesson from the MS leak and she's running her ship Oprah-style tight!
