Taylor Lautner Interested in More Twilight Movies

According to Digital Spy, actor Taylor Lautner would be interested in making more Twilight movies if author Stephenie Meyer (pictured, via) writes a spin-off starring werewolf Jacob Black and vampire-human hybrid Renesmee Cullen.

USA Today reported that Meyer shared a lot of secrets with ten fans on the film set of Breaking Dawn Part 1. When asked about whether or not Jacob could father children with Renesmee, she responded: “That is a question I’m reserving the right not to answer, because there is a chance I’ll go back to their story.”

Meyer also talked about several projects for the future, including: a fantasy story, a sequel for The Host, a 1,000-page novel about mermaids, and finishing Midnight Sun (the first Twilight book written from Edward Cullen‘s perspective).

Sterling Publishing’s Splinter Imprint Opens with Colleen Houck Fantasy Series

Splinter, Sterling Publishing’s young-adult imprint, will launch with a three-part fantasy series by Colleen Houck.

Breaking the tradition of publishing one book per year, the Tiger Saga will be available in its entirety by the end of 2011. Splinter will release Tiger’s Curse on January 11th, Tiger’s Quest on June 11th, and Tiger’s Voyage on November 11th. The books will be published in both hardcover and eBook formats.

Houck wrote Tiger Saga while waiting for vampire novelist Stephenie Meyer to complete her Twilight Saga. Houck explained on her website: “I was a bit overdramatic, but I was in despair. I felt like I’d just broken up with my boyfriend and I desperately needed to park my car outside his house to see what he was doing. Then, like the little red hen, I decided that if nobody was going to write another series like that, I’d do it myself.”
