Stephenie Meyer keeps the 'Twilight' stories coming
Here's the reason why we refer to "Twilight" as a saga. Because it's never going to end.
Stephenie Meyer is releasing "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner," a novella that centers around one of the newborn vamps from "Eclipse." Little, Brown Books for Young Readers will release the book on June 5. And hey, did we mention that "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" just happens to arrive in theaters a few short weeks later, on June 30? Total coincidence, P.S.
In a statement on her Web site, Meyer says she intended to write the 200-page tale as part of "The Twilight Saga: The Official Guide." But it wound up being too lengthy to include; hence, now it stands as its own, nicely bound entity. To Meyer's credit, she says the work will be available online for free "as a gift" to the Twi-hards. Also to Meyer's (and the publisher's) credit: a portion of proceeds from hard copy sales of the book will be donated to the American Red Cross International Response Fund.
So will you happily purchase a copy of "Bree Tanner" come June? Will you read it online for free? Or do you view this as just another marketing tool for the movie franchise?
