As Stephanie Meyer’s Midnight Sun was hitting the stands, the author announced that she has ideas for two more books in the Twilight universe. Recently, during an exclusive virtual appearance for US online book chain Books-A-Million, Meyer had a few key things to say about her plans to continue Twilight. She made quite a few revelations, here is a look at them:
Stephenie Meyer pleasantly surprised fans when she disclosed that she has made some progress on two additional Twilight books. She said there are “two more books” within the world she has established that she would like to explore further. “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.” Stephanie said.
An especially exciting bit of information the author disclosed during the event is the focus of the next Twilight book. Based on what the author said, we’ll be getting a straight sequel to Breaking Dawn. In her words: “I think technically it will be set in the past because the sequel to Breaking Dawn starts about four years after Breaking Dawn. So that’s in the past, but for me, it’s in the future. It’s a weird mental space.”
Additionally, Meyer talked a little bit about the main villains of the original Twilight series, the Volturi. “The Volturi obviously have to be dealt with. They are the big bad and clearly are not going to leave the Cullens alone. And they’re not going to do this ‘hey, you meet us here and we’ll fight it out.’ They are going to come out of it from the sides. So that is coming.”
Stephenie Meyer also said that she has been holding off writing more Twilight books nay more. “For me, a lot of the joy of writing comes from creating and I really want to do a new world, new rules, and new mythology. Mythology is kind of my thing, so I get excited to create something new instead of just following the old rules I already have. I do want to get to that and I plan to eventually. I wish I could be more like a machine, like this is what I want to do next, plug it in, do it but that’s just not how my brain works.”
