Author Stephenie Meyer Talks Future Of ‘Twilight Saga’


Entertainment Weekly got an exclusive peek at the upcoming ‘Twilight’ graphic novel and also had a chance to talk to the Twilight Saga author, Stephenie Meyer. They chatted about her involvement with the comic and also about her work on future books.

The graphic novel (due out March 16), was drawn and adapted by Young Kim, but Stephenie shares that she was very involved in the process:

I was definitely involved. I didn’t do the original “script” for the book, so to speak. But when I got the dialogue with the images, I did a lot of tinkering. In a couple of places, I asked for missing scenes to be inserted. For example, the conversation in the car that Bella and Edward have after she faints in Biology.

The graphic novel has made her feel the way she did back when she first wrote Twilight.

For me, it takes me back to the days when I was writing Twilight. It’s been a while since I was really able to read Twilight; there is so much baggage attached to that book for me now. It seems like all I can see are the mistakes in the writing. Reading Young’s version brought me back to the feeling I had when I was writing and it was just me and the characters again. I love that. I thank her for it.

EW: When this project is done, are you done with Twilight?

SM: I can’t say that I am done with Twilight forever. I’m not working on anything new Twilight-related now, and probably not for a while. But there’s still a possibility that I’ll go back and close some of the open doors.

Many Twilight fans will assume that she’s talking about the unfinished manuscript for Midnight Sun, at least that’s where my mind immediately went!

What do you think? Are you still anxiously waiting for the rest of Midnight Sun? Would you read any other Twilight-related books she might write in the future?

    I think it’s quite narrow minded to think ill of her writing. Yes it’s way too linear and simple, almost as though it were written by a kid, but hey, grammar and orthography are correct, the ideas are exposed clearly and well organized and it captivates the reader beyond reason! Most kids I know read the books countless times over! Now if you wanna call that bad writing, speak for yourselves. I study every day, read technical books by the dozen, rest my head on fictional books nonstop and I tell you it’s been more than 15 years since I read something I enjoyed as much as Stephenie’s books. You give me any great litterary masterpiece and I’m likely to take 2 months to read it and fall asleep every time I pick up the book. When I finish, I may say it was incredibly well written and enumarate all the astouding literary abilities of the author, but nothing compares to me reading 4 books, some over 500 pages in 6 days! It’s been 2 years now and I keep wishing she’d write some more, I really miss having a book I can’t let go of for 2 seconds.

    I don’t see how reading Twilight promotes literacy! hahahaha!!! (If you’ve read the books, you know why this is an atrocity!)

    Thank you!! I completely agree. I like the story, but her writing style is completely atrocious.

    Meyer was introduced by video feed to a number of school administrators and teachers who explained the impact that the Twilight series had upon the literacy of their school children at least to the effect that they became completely consumed in the series and began to enjoy reading again.
