Meyer to expand vampire franchise
22nd January 2010
Stephenie Meyer, the hit US author behind the Twilight franchise, which currently includes a number of best-selling books and a successful box office movie, is set to expand it into the world of graphic novels.
The first volume of Twilight: The Graphic Novel, which is a collaborative work created with Korean illustrator Young Kim, will be published on March 16th, reported Entertainment Weekly.
According to Meyer, the collaboration has resulted in a book that is very close to the lucid dream that inspired her to start writing.
She told the news provider that working with Kim took her back to the days when she 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,' she claimed.
The Twilight saga consists of four books – Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn.
In 2008, Meyer was working on a fifth book for the series called Midnight Sun, the first 12 chapters of which have been posted on the author's website after an illegal copy was leaked onto the internet.
