Stephenie Meyer at Vroman's, August 25.

Q: Are you planning to write another series after Dawn?
Stephenie: Am I planning... When you ask about planning to write another series, do you mean another vampire or something different?
Q: Something different.
S: Something different. My first different book comes out in May. It's called The Host and it's sort of science fiction, which I know turns people off when they hear that, unless your (..?) like it. But it's not like it at all. It's not going to have that feel. So it's really different and my only real worry...I'm really excited about it, I really like these characters and the story. My only real worry is that people are going to get this book, they're going to flip it open, they're going start going faster and faster; "Wait a minute! Edward's not here! What!? What is this book? Where is Edward?"

For those wondering why the cover was changed,

Q: Why did you change the cover of The Host?
S: Why? Oh.. That's a.... I didn't change the cover of The Host. This is the thing with the covers that...
Q: (...) the publishers?
S: Why would they change it? With the covers that are on my web site, they're just like the play-ones, that I made. When I would print out books off my computer and give out to my friends and stuff, I would make a cover to put on it and so it's just what I like. And then the real art people come in and make the covers. And so with the new cover for The Host, that's the official one, that the art directors do. As an author you don't actually get to pick what's on your book, you're lucky if they let you help.
