Twilight: Stephenie Meyer says she’s already started writing next novel in saga, with another to follow
Stephanie Meyer has said that she plans to write at least two more books in her hit Twilight vampire series.
The revelation arrives as the latest entry, Midnight Sun, has topped the bestsellers charts in both sides of the Atlantic.
During an online event for US books chain Books-A-Million, the author said “There are two more books I think in the world that I want to write. I have got them outlined and a chapter written I think of the first one, so I know it’s there.”
However, it could be a while before fans will be able to get their hands on the next Twilight instalments. Meyer added: “I am not ready to do that right now – I want to do something brand new.”
The Twilight saga was also adapted into a hit film franchise, which starred Robert Pattinson as the sullen vampire Edward and Kristen Stewart as the love-struck mortal Bella.
Midnight Sun has sold more than a million copies in the US in a week.
In the UK, 62,460 hardback copies were sold in the three-day window between the novel’s launch and the cut-off date for sales monitor Nielsen BookScan’s charts, which was enough to launch Meyer into the number one spot.
In a two-star review for The Independent, Annie Lord wrote that Midnight Sun is “a frustrating reminder of how much of popular culture focuses on a helpless woman being saved by a troubled, yet ultimately forgivable man.”
Now Calhoun, the author of a memoir, “The Wedding Toasts I’ll Never Give,” and an urban history, “St. Marks Is Dead,” explores the issue in depth in her latest book, “Why We Can’t Sleep: Women’s New Midlife Crisis.”
Australian writer Thomas Keneally can be a hard sell. Brilliant, visionary and astoundingly prolific, he has written such bestsellers as “Schindler’s List” and “The Daughters of Mars,” as well as more than 40 other books.
