Little Brown has announced
the publishing schedule for the Twilight books in the works. The first book will be a movie tie-in version of New Moon, which hits theaters November 20th. There will also be a limited edition hardcover of Breaking Dawn.
The Breaking Dawn special edition will feature a DVD of the Breaking Dawn Concert Series, including a performance by Blue October's Justin Furstenfeld and conversation between author Stephenie Meyer and Furstenfeld. LB is printing "only" one million copies of this edition; it goes on sale August 4 for $24.99. Also that day, the publisher will release a trade paperback edition of Eclipse, the third book in the series.
The $24.99 journals set consists of four journals packaged in a tin, and will go on sale October 13. In addition to the mass market tie-in edition of New Moon, LB will also release New Moon Collector's Edition, slipcased with a ribbon bookmark and cloth cover, for $30; and New Moon: The Complete Illustrated Movie Companion for $18.99, both on October 6.
New Moon is shooting right now in Vancouver; the studio is rushing production to get the film in theaters by November.
