Today Stephenie Meyer blogged on her myspace page clearing up the Breaking Dawn book confusion, among other things:
”I’ve gotten a lot of questions on my comments page and in messages about Breaking Dawn and other Twilight Saga novels. Hopefully this will help:
1) Breaking Dawn is in the editing phase. It it tentatively set for release Fall 2008. It could be later if we hit a snag in editing. Usually editing takes longer than a few months, but both I and my editors will be putting in lots of overtime to make this happen.
2) Midnight Sun is only half-written. It will not be coming out until a while after it’s finished. Don’t expect it anytime soon. I will let you know when the rough draft is finished, and then you can start asking when it is due out. I don’t foresee much chance to work on it until Breaking Dawn is completely finished.
3) Forever Dawn (the early, poorly written sequel to Twilight) is not the “steamy” version of Breaking Dawn; I don’t know how that rumor got started. Forever Dawn is not adult as in “XXX.” It is adult as in “not written exclusively for a young adult audience, much like Pride and Prejudice or Gone With the Wind.” There is no steam in Forever Dawn that is not also in Breaking Dawn, so please stop begging me for the “ooh la la” version. It does not exist. I may put some small excerpts of Forever Dawn on my website after Breaking Dawn comes out, but then again, maybe not. It’s not that great. All the best stuff is in Breaking Dawn.New topic: the Twilight movie
I do not have any casting updates. I haven’t heard anything since the Robert Pattinson announcement. I’m waiting on the same pins and needles you all are. When I get home from vacation, I’ll see if I can get some news.”
So as we’ve said before Breaking Dawn = fall 2008. [Thanks Stephenie for clearing that up]
[edit 01/08/08]Amazon.com no longer has the book available for pre-sale. We do not have any details about what happened[/edit]
It has been pointed out to us that you can actually PRE ORDER Breaking Dawn from amazon.com for $21.99. A little early, yes, but for those of us not planning on attending a release party… Why not.
