Stephenie Meyer announces two new Twilight books

Course she does.

Stephenie Meyer has announced two new Twilight books in the least shocking development since Stephenie Meyer announced announced the release of her latest Twilight book.

Following on from the success of Midnight Sun (Twilight, but told from Edward’s perspective, don’t you know), the author revealed that she was, indeed, planning on releasing more novels concerning Edward and Bella’s questionable love.

Meyer confirmed the news via a virtual chat with fans at the Books-a-Million event this week.

According to USA Today, she said: “I have got them outlined and a chapter written I think of the first one, so I know it’s there.

“I am not ready to do that right now, I want to do something brand new (…) For me, a lot of the joy of writing comes from creating and I really want to do a new world and new rules and new mythology. Mythology is kind of my thing.”

But she’ll do it at some stage, obviously. Gotta get that coin, girl.

Meyer’s most recent release, Midnight Sun, sold a staggering one million copies during its first week, so it only make sense that the author is planning on further cashing in on the, ahem, greatest love story Forks, Washington has ever seen.

However it’s looking likely that these new Twilight books, whenever they may arrive, won’t be told from Edward’s perspective alá Midnight Sun.

Meyer recently told the New York Times that Edward’s POV isn’t something she’s desperate to return to.

“This is it for Edward,” she said. “Writing from his point of view makes me extra anxious. And the experience of writing this book was not a super pleasant one.

“I think this gives you enough of a sense of what it’s like to be Edward that you could go and look at the other books and you would know what’s going on in his head.”

Probably something weird, realistically.
