When Stephenie Meyer's latest offering, 'The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner' went on sale at 5.05 am 5th June, it quickly became one of the fastest selling books of all time, selling 89,549 print copies in just 19 hours. This is a real boost to the industry, of course. Then yesterday, 7th of June, it was offered up as a free download as a 'thank you' to all her loyal fans. A lot of activity surrounding vampires, yet again.
