Author’s Introduction: New Moon

I began writing New Moon (Edward) in mid-August 2011 after completing Breaking Dawn (Edward). Readers participated in a poll and selected New Moon (Edward) as their next most-desired book, edging out the completion of Eclipse (Edward) by only a few votes.

Many of us want to know what was happening with Edward during his sojourn away from Forks after he leaves Bella to allow her a normal human life. Bella falls into a deep depression after his departure, but Edward suffers enormously too.

We know from Bella’s version of New Moon that the Cullens move to Ithaca, New York, and take up their various pursuits. Edward joins his family for a short time before he leaves to pursue a vendetta against Victoria, the evil vampiress who helped her mate, James, attempt to murder Bella. The revenge Edward seeks leads him first to Texas and then to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, before his fateful confrontation with the Volturi in Italy.

A new feature I’m adding as an enhancement to Edward’s point-of-view of the Twilight Saga is a series of photographs relevant to Edward’s life and story. At least initially, the photographs will be published as entries in my blog, “News,” which can be found in the menu at the top of this page.

The first series of photos are images of Edward’s childhood home in Chicago. The Masen House, built in 1880, is now owned by Edward and is kept as part of the Cullens’ real estate portfolio. Here is a link to that post: Masen House.

    I’m just about to start reading New Moon. If it’s anywhere near as good as Twilight I know I will be gripped from the first page! I’m so glad I found you and these wonderful pages. I wrote to you recently whilst reading Twilight and I’m doing so yet again. I can’t wait to start this book. Thanking you in anticipation.

      Hi Lindsay,
      New Moon was the most difficult (and most painful) of the books to write. How much did it hurt Edward to leave Bella? More than she ever knew. This is a very different book–Edward on his own for much of it. When asked if she would write Edward’s version of New Moon, Stephenie Meyer commented that “it would be boring.” I didn’t know that until after I wrote this version. I hope it’s not too boring. 😉 -PAL
