You’ve probably heard about this already, but it deserves its own post!
It was announced on Tuesday that Stephenie Meyer will be releasing a short novella in June, entitled The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. Bree is, if you remember, one of the newborn vampires created by Victoria in Eclipse. This 192-page book started as a “writing exercise” for Meyer, but will apparently be influencing the Eclipse film. The book will be available in June as a hardcover, or for free online at breetanner.com, which will be up from June 7th through July 5th. A dollar of the proceeds from each book will be donated to the American Red Cross, and there will be an option on breetanner.com to donate directly, as well.
I’m not 100% sure how interested I am in Bree Tanner, to be honest. Whether I’m going to be reading this or not is not even a question, though. Yes, I’ve had my quibbles with Ms. Meyer, but the fact is, if she write it, I’ll read it, end of story.
