Stephenie Meyer teases TWO MORE Twilight books after Midnight Sun sells MILLION copies in first week

Stephenie Meyer created a pop culture phenomenon in 2005, when she published the first in the Twilight Saga.

The American author recently revived the series of young adult novels, dropping the long-awaited fifth installment Midnight Sun.

She’s still not quite done with the globally successful franchise, recently revealing that she has at least ‘two more books’ in her, although she’s keeping them on the back-burner.

The 46-year-old said last week during a virtual Books-A-Million event: ‘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. I am not ready to do that right now. I want to do something brand new.’

As for the potential plots, she told Hypable in 2015: ‘I think if I was really going to do it, it would be Renesmee. And Leah. Those are the two most unresolved characters. 

‘If I was going to do it — if it wasn’t for my enjoyment — the fans would want Alice I think. That would be the one they definitely would want to have.’

Meyer has left the fate of the franchise up in the air for several years, before announcing the release of Midnight Sun this year. 

According to Collider, she said at a press junket for Breaking Dawn, Part 2 in 2012: ‘I don’t know. Like I said, I’m not into permanence, so I wouldn’t say no absolutely. I’m not going to do it today, but I don’t know how I’m going to feel in five years.’

Meanwhile, the author’s prequel book sold more than 1million copies in its first week, after it was released earlier this month.

She told Seventeen: ‘I did doubt whether anyone would still want this story. It’s been so long it would only serve me right if nobody cared. So to know that people still wanted to read it was kind of amazing.’ 

Midnight Sun tells the story of the original Twilight book through the perspective of the lead vampire protagonist Edward Cullen.

The rest of the books in the franchise have been narrated by his mortal romantic counterpart Bella Swan.

Meyer previously shelved the book back in 2008, after 12 chapters of the unreleased manuscript were leaked online. 

She published Twilight in 2005, followed by the sequels New Moon (2006), Eclipse (2007) and Breaking Dawn (2008), selling more than 100million copies worldwide.

The books inspired five films (Breaking Dawn split into two parts), released from 2008 to 2012, starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Anna Kendrick early in their careers.
