After Stephenie Meyer’s surprise release of “Midnight Sun” this month, many “Twilight” fans have been asking whether there are more books still to come in the series. Now, Meyer has revealed that she does, in fact, have plans for more.

Meyer shared some of her future plans while speaking at a virtual event for Books-A-Million on Monday, according to USA Today.

“There are two more books I think in the world that I want to write,” Meyer said, according to USA Today. “I have got them outlined and a chapter written I think of the first one, so I know it’s there.”

However, she emphasized that the books might not come any time soon.

“I am not ready to do that right now, I want to do something brand new,” said Meyer, according to USA Today. “For me, a lot of the joy of writing comes from creating and I really want to do a new world and new rules and new mythology. Mythology is kind of my thing.”

Meyer released a new “Twilight” installment, “Midnight Sun,” on Aug. 4. The novel — which retells the events of “Twilight” from the perspective of Bella Swan’s vampire boyfriend Edward Cullen — sold over 1 million copies in its first week of sales, according to Entertainment Weekly.

“Midnight Sun” is also currently the No. 1 novel on both USA Today’s Best-Selling Books List and the New York Times Children’s Series List, EW reported.

Meyer has said that she does not intend to write a follow-up to “Midnight Sun,” telling the New York Times earlier this month that writing from the perspective of Edward made her “anxious.”

“This is it for Edward,” Meyer told the Times. “I think this gives you enough of a sense of what it’s like to be Edward that you could go and look at the other books and you would know what’s going on in his head.”
