Fans of popular vampire story Twilight Saga go wild as author announces new book in the series

Author Stephanie Meyer has announced the release of the Midnight Sun yesterday during a chat with Good Morning America.

The book will follow the love story between vampire Edward Cullen and human Bella Swan, but this time from his perspective - also offering insight into his life before meeting his soulmate.

Meyer explained why she chose to announce the book - which will come out on August 4th - right now.

'I hope this book gives my readers a little pleasure to anticipate and, if it arrives, a chance to live in an imaginary world for a while.


'It's a crazy time right now and I wasn't sure if this was the right time to put this book out, but some of you have been waiting for just so, so long,' she told fans.

'It didn't seem fair to make you wait anymore. Sorry about the bad timing. Hopefully this book can be a distraction from the real world.'

'I'm so excited to finally be able to share it with you,' she went on.

She shared a similar sentiment in a press release, saying: 'I hope this book gives my readers a little pleasure to anticipate and, if it arrives, a chance to live in an imaginary world for a while.


'I can’t express how much I appreciate the patience of my readers, and their support over the years it took to finish Midnight Sun.'

The original Twilight came out in 2005 and was an international sensation, selling over 100million copies worldwide and leading to the sequels New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn.

A series of movie adaptations starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson grossed an amazing $3.3 billion in ticket sales.

Midnight Sun has been in the works for quite some time.
