Stephenie Meyer's latest book tops UK sales chart

16th June 2010

Teen author Stephenie Meyer has become the UK's second bestselling author in terms of first-week sales.

The writer sold 136,995 copies of her novella The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner last week - despite the fact that it has been available for free online since June 7th, reports the Bookseller.

According to the figures from Nielsen BookScan, Meyer has cemented her reputation as one of the world's most successful young fiction authors and has only been outdone by Harry Potter writer J. K. Rowling in the UK market.

The book generated total revenues of GBP 778,400 across the nation.

Britain's second bestselling book last week was Patricia Cornwell's Scarpetta Factor. However, Meyer's book outsold Cornwell's by a factor of more than five.

Third place went to Stieg Larsson's The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest.

In 2008, Meyer stopped working on her fifth novel in the Twilight series, Midnight Sun, after a draft manuscript was leaked onto the internet.
