Unauthorized Internet Release Aborts Book

Shortly after the unauthorized release of a partial copy of the fifth and final book in the young adult “Twilight” series on the Internet, author Stephenie Meyer puts the official release of the book on hold in protest. The novel tells the love story of a human teenager named Bella and her vampire lover, Edward. Meyer is the author of Twilight" and its sequels "New Moon," "Eclipse" and "Breaking Dawn.”

The author reports on her Web site that she had given draft versions of Midnight Sun to trusted individuals for a good purpose, and that due to little changes which were made to the manuscript at different times, she has a pretty good idea of how the leak happened. Meyers hopes that her fans will not read the flawed draft version of the story online since this was a flawed, draft version of the tale.

"This has been a very upsetting experience for me, but I hope it will at least leave my fans with a better understanding of copyright and the importance of artistic control," wrote Meyer. "I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on "Midnight Sun," and so it is on hold indefinitely."

Be mindful of the people you let see the draft versions of your story.
