Stephenie Meyer Reveals Her Upcoming Projects

Stephenie Meyer recently chatted with fans about her upcoming projects, including Midnight Sun and the possibility of a Jacob/Renesmee spinoff book—and, no, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke! Back in January, we told you about a worldwide contest for ten lucky Stephenie Meyer fans to get a chance to meet the author. Well, the top-secret meeting went down last week on the set of Breaking Dawn in Vancouver. USA Today has all the details, but here’s what Stephenie had to say about what she’s working on now:

Midnight Sun
Fans are dying to read Midnight Sun, which is a retelling of Twilight from Edward’s point of view. But after the manuscript was leaked online, Meyer shelved the project. However, she says that she hopes to finish it eventually:

“I’m hoping to do it someday because I know that’s what people want. No matter what book I put out from here to eternity they’ll want Midnight Sun, but I’m just not writing about vampires right now.”

The Host Sequel
Regarding the sequel to her adult novel The Host, she says:

“I have the outline written and the first two chapters. I need to get on it.”

More Twilight books?
She probably won’t write another book about Edward and Bella:

“The story’s already been told, and I doubt I’ll ever write another series based on the same characters.”

However, when asked about the possibility of Jacob and Renesmee spawning their own little werewolves or vampires, she won’t answer because she hasn’t completely ruled out a spinoff book:

“That is a question I’m reserving the right not to answer, because there is a chance I’ll go back to their story.”

New Projects
Meyer also talked about two brand new projects she has in the works:

“It’s a fantasy that takes place in another world where people are using bows and arrows and swords. There’s a little bit of magic, but it’s a very limited form of magic. The characters are human, and some have the ability to use magic and some don’t. It’s pretty dark. People die. The main character is a 17-year-old girl, and she’s kind of cool.”

“When I was growing up, I was obsessed with mermaids. I do have a very elaborate outline for a book. I’m not working on it right now, but I have the feeling it’s going to be big. It’s going to be 1,000 pages.”

Wow, there’s some interesting information here. Personally, I’m most looking forward to Midnight Sun and the sequel to The Host, rather than a new book. How about you? Which book would like to read most?
