Meyer revealed that she had written the story as a ‘thank you‘ to Twilight’s legions of loyal fans: ‘I’d always considered The Short Second Life Of Bree Tanner as something for the fans,’ she said. ‘They have been so supportive of all things Twilight.’


The 192-page novella will also be made available online at www.breetanner.com, in a read-only format.

Describing her decision to put the book out there for free, Meyer again addressed her fans, saying: ‘You all have bought a ton of my books, and I wanted to give you this story as a gift… We still wanted to also produce a physical book with a cool cover that you can add to your set if you like.’
