Are you writing any other books right now? - Kershia
Hi Stephenie! :) Of course, I love the Twilight saga, but I was also blown away by how beautiful and unique your other novel, The Host, was -- so I was wondering: do you have any plans for more books not related to Twilight? Thank you so much! :) Kelly <3
I'd like to eventually have The Host be part of a trilogy. That's one of the projects I'd really like to get to in the next year or so.
So as The Host novel Livejournal said:
"So ...if Stephenie plans to be working on the next book "in a year or so", maybe that means the extra chapter in The Host will be a sneak preview of the next book?!".
According to Amazon this edition will be released on april 13th 2010. let's keep our fingers crossed
Andrew Niccol will write the script and direct.
Meyer's novel is a love story set in the near future on Earth, which has been assimilated by an alien species of benevolent parasites that call themselves "Souls." One such soul, the Wanderer, is fused with a dying human named Melanie Stryder, in an attempt to locate the last pocket of surviving humans on Earth.
Wechsler and the Schwartzes are separately teamed on "The Road," the John Hillcoat-directed adaptation of the Cormac McCarthy novel that will be released Nov. 25 by the Weinstein Co. They are also producing the Paul Schrader-scripted "The Dying of the Light" and an adaptation of Pete Takada book "An Eye at the Top of the World," which Ryne Douglas Pearson is adapting.
In addition to writing four volumes of the "Twilight" series, Meyer has been heavily involved in the screen transfers, and she spurned several overtures for "The Host." The producers continued lobbying the author and her UTA reps with a significant offer, a strong vision for the project and a collaborative spirit. Meyer eventually said yes.
In fact, Niccol first came under consideration after Wechsler and the Schwartzes asked Meyer what her favorite science fiction films are. "Gattaca" and "The Truman Show" were in her top five; Niccol wrote and directed "Gattaca" and scripted the Peter Weir-directed "The Truman Show."
Niccol most recently wrote and directed Orlando Bloom starrer "The Cross."
"We wanted Stephenie to be involved in the adaptation and have her endorse and be part of the creative decisions," Wechsler said. "Twilight" has "proven she knows more about what works than most."
Summit releases the second adaptation of Meyers' vampire series, "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," on Nov. 20.

I'm adding one more very special, one-of-a-kind item to my auction list for the Save the Book Babe event this Saturday. Hobo Skateboards has designed a beautiful The Host-themed board just for this fund raiser. Am I allowed to bid on this stuff? I'd better check.
Robert Thompson, better known as the Fantasy Book Critic, has turned his eyes to the best fantasy and scifi novels of 2008, along with some games and comics too.
The Kingdom Beyond the Waves was his best fantasy novel, with The Host by Stephenie Meyer heading up the SF section, although he admits this is more of a romance play (but nothing wrong in that).
