‘Twilight’ Success Inspires New Material, More Books

Before 'New Moon' hits theaters, publishing company plans to release exclusive content from the franchise.

[movie id="305755"]“Twilight”[/movie] was released on DVD in March and the next cinematic installment of Stephenie Meyer’s vampire series, “New Moon,” doesn’t hit theaters until November. What are devoted Edward and Bella fans to do in the meantime? Little, Brown and Company, the publisher behind the books — which have sold 53 million copies worldwide — is filling the void with a range of new material.

A special hardcover edition of “Breaking Dawn,” the final book in the “Twilight” franchise, arrives in August. It will include an exclusive DVD with footage from last summer’s four-city “Breaking Dawn” concert series, featuring a conversation between Meyer and Justin Furstenfeld of Blue October, as well as a concert performance by the group. The edition will also come with a reproduction of Furstenfeld’s handwritten lyrics for his song “My Never,” plus a full-color poster of Bella and Edward.

In October, Little, Brown and Company will release “The Twilight Journals,” a series of books inspired by the “Twilight” franchise. Each journal features the iconic “Twilight” artwork, and the entire collection comes packaged in a collectible tin.

Also in October, “New Moon: The Complete Illustrated Movie Companion” will hit bookshelves. Like the #1 New York Times best-selling “Twilight” version, the “New Moon” companion will be an illustrated paperback with a behind-the-scenes guide to the making of the film and color photos of the cast, locations, and sets.

Additionally, the publisher is set to publish a number of other hardcover and paperback versions of “New Moon,” including a cloth-covered edition — “Twilight” devotees will have much to sink their teeth into before “New Moon” arrives in the fall.
