Midnight Sun to be discontinued

Oh shucks. And I was so looking forward to this one - Twilight from Edward's perspective. As such, I have read and re-read choice pages of the 4 books to spend the time while I wait for the movie and the new book. 

Stephenie Meyer decided to discontinue after a draft has been illegally posted on the internet. 

This is sad. Real sad. I hope Stephenie changes her mind.

So sad...

Midnight Sun: Edward's Version of Twilight

August 28, 2008

As some of you may have heard, my partial draft of Midnight Sun was illegally posted on the Internet and has since been virally distributed without my knowledge or permission or the knowledge or permission of my publisher...

I did not want my readers to experience Midnight Sun before it was completed, edited and published. I think it is important for everybody to understand that what happened was a huge violation of my rights as an author, not to mention me as a human being....

So where does this leave Midnight Sun? My first feeling was that there was no way to continue. Writing isn't like math; in math, two plus two always equals four no matter what your mood is like. With writing, the way you feel changes everything. If I tried to write Midnight Sun now, in my current frame of mind, James would probably win and all the Cullens would die, which wouldn't dovetail too well with the original story. In any case, I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on Midnight Sun, and so it is on hold indefinitely.
