The best-selling author Stephenie Meyer talks about her latest book, “Midnight Sun,” which retells “Twilight” from the vampire’s perspective. Why now? “Because I finished it,” she says. https://t.co/4hPCIaXhQZ— New York Times Books (@nytimesbooks) August 3, 2020
Twelve years after a partial draft leaked online, Stephenie Meyer has milked one more drop out of the Twilight franchise.
Some highlights from the article:
- Fans crashed her website when the book was announced in May.
- Meyer does not think the original leaker had bad intentions, but was shaken because she thought someone had hacked her computer.
- Does not plan to rewrite the entire perspective from Edward's PoV.
- Recognizes that a lot of people find the Bella/Edward relationship creepy and controlling.
