New Twilight book: April Fools joke?

Please, tell me this is an early April Fools joke!

“Before “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” hits theaters on June 30, “Twilight” fans will be treated to a new glimpse into author Stephenie Meyer’s vampire universe.

On June 5, the 36-year-old multimillionaire author will release “The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner,” a novella that takes place concurrently with the events in the third “Twilight” book, “Eclipse.”

WTF?!?!

Shit! Fuck! Crap! Shit!

Ok, now let me rephrase that: What the fuck is this woman doing? Why don’t people stop her?!? This is insane. I mean: insane. There are so many talented writers who actually spend time researching, writing, trying to find a published, struggling, caring, trying to do their best (for example: me :D), and this talentless… individual recycles her wet dream cash cow novel over and over and over again. And people are actually interested in this?

Please, tell me it’s an April Fools joke.

    I thought the same thing. I actually read the first book to see what all the fuss was about. It was the most unspectacular thing I have ever read.

    I dont understand the craze.

    I’m afraid it’s true. =/

    And I don’t think I’m going to torture myself again reading this. I have learned one important lesson by reading Twilight, and I learned it the hard way: You don’t need to eat rotten food to know it can do you harm.

    Ahh! Why!? Just Why? Can’t people please just get over that crap by now. I have never read any of the ‘books’ (I use this term lightly) but have had the (dis)pleasure of being FORCED AGAINST MY WILL to watch the ‘movie’ (again, light usage of the word). I just don’t get the attraction, unless you want a reason to turn to alcoholism…
    Anyway, good luck with your book, what kind of book is it? xx

    Sorry for my late reply, guys…

    @Y

    Welcome to my website!

    You’re right, “unspectacular: might be the right word to describe “Twilight” (though “unreadable” also comes to mind).

    @Mariana

    Same here. I don’t think I have time and patience for this crap anymore. Meyer should stop recycling this story already!

    I hope you’re not writing for the same target audience…!

    What target audience? Sexually frustrated housewives? I hope not.
    (Then again, two of the main characters are incredibly hot guys, so I am not… quite… sure. Joking, joking! I AM sure).

    @Fiona

    “Twilight” books are as crappy as the movies. Trust me. Maybe even worse, because the author takes them way too seriously.

    My book is still on its preparation stage (that started around 2003, I believe) and it’s a fantasy novel. I’d really love to write it. I want to write. I need to write.
