    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, in a read-only format.
