Stephenie Meyer Continues To Avoid Leaked Sequel

twilight2.JPGFollowing an online leak of her upcoming Twilight manuscript, Stephenie Meyer has stopped working on the sequel to her bestselling vampire series.

In August 2008, a draft of Midnight Sun (the fifth book in the Twilight series) showed up on the Internet. Meyer responded by posting the incomplete draft on her own website, and took a break from the book–explaining that she “feel[s] too sad” about the illegal release. The Daily News reports today that she still has no plans to pick up the manuscript.

Here’s more: “Nothing’s changed,’ a rep for the author confirms to us. … ‘Stephenie is working on something else at the moment,’ the flack reveals. ‘But she hasn’t announced it yet. It isn’t ‘Twilight‘-related. When she’s ready to reveal it, she will. This has been an intense three years for her, and currently she’s just focusing on being a writer.’” (Link via.)
