Why did it take 12 years to come out?
The last Twilight book that came out was in 2005, so fans are asking why it took Stephanie Meyer so long to write this book.
The original date that the book was supposed to be released was in 2008, but there was an issue when an unedited manuscript was leaked. The manuscript being leaked was a factor in the delayed publishing process.
What does Sephanie Meyer say about the delay?
During a interview with the New York Times, Sephanie Meyer said the following in regards to the delay in publishing the book:
“The reason it wasn’t published earlier was because it was not done, and when I did see the light at the end of the tunnel — when I saw that I was actually going to be able to finish it — I started the publication process right away, because I knew there were people who had been waiting really kindly and patiently, but also anxiously, for quite a while”.
“It became quickly obvious that there wasn’t a real end in sight with Covid, I am really excited when I have a book to read right now, because there’s not much else that’s exciting. I hoped people would feel the same way.”
