‘Midnight Sun’ on Hold

Stephenie Meyer announced on her site yesterday that she has shelved plans for Midnight Sun, a retelling of the Twilight Saga from Edward’s point of view. She says she made the decision because a partial draft was posted on the web without her permission, which she considers “a huge violation of my rights as an author, not to mention me as a human being.”

Writing about it poses a dilemma;

I’d rather my fans not read this version of Midnight Sunthe writing is messy and flawed and full of mistakes. But how do I comment on this violation without driving more people to look for the illegal posting?

In the end, she decided to post the draft on her site so her fans “don’t have to make a sacrifice to stay honest.”
