Little, Brown

The best-selling Twilight saga may have officially ended with the fourth book, Breaking Dawn, but author Stephanie Meyer isn't done writing about vampires.

Meyer announced today that she will release a 200-page novella called "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner" this summer. It will focus on baby vampire Bree Tanner, who is killed ten pages after her birth in Eclipse, the third Twilight book.

Meyer writes on her Web site:

I was thinking a lot about the newborns, imagining their side of the story, and one thing led to another. I started writing from Bree's perspective about those final days, and what it was like to be a newborn.

The novella comes out on June 7th and will be available for free online until July 5th. For fans who miss the free window—or who want an official bound copy for their collections—proceeds from the bound copy will go to the Red Cross' efforts in Haiti and Chile
