Host sequel mentioned during fansite junket 09/19/2010
Host author Stephenie Meyer briefly mentioned her desire to finish the Host sequel (tentatively titled The Soul) during the massive fansite junket she did for the release of the Eclipse movie (Via Twilight Series Theories):
"Fansite: If you could do anything, I mean literally could just stop everything for let’s say six months, just do anything, what would it be that you would take your time to do? Would it be another story? Would it be…
Stephenie Meyer: If I could shut it all off for six months, it would be…I think I’d get another book done in that amount of time. It’s funny because for me it’s all about the story that’s keeping me up at night, and it fluctuates a little bit because the cannibal mermaids are…there’s such a story there. It’s a departure. It’s pure fantasy. It’s a [map] in the front piece fantasy and it’s a whole other world, and that might throw people, right? But if I could write that in a vacuum and it doesn’t matter, I’d really want to write it for me. And then there’s the sequel to The Host...Especially if we’re starting to work on the movies and they’re like: “Soooo, what’s gonna be in the next one?” I think I have ten years to write before they’ll just do their own sequel."
Lets just hope it doesn't take ten years. Pretty please?
