Woah, remember this? What seems like a million years ago (i.e. right after Twilight first came out) there was news of an official Twilight guide from Stephenie herself but with film production and novella's all over, things got pushed back...
However, it looks like it's going to finally be on a book shelf near you soon - in fact next April 12, 2011 for the vamplicious hard-back price of $24.99!
According to Little Brown:
