Forever Dawn is the original, unpublished sequel to Twilight, written for Stephenie Meyer's own enjoyment. Meyer says that the book did not fit in with her young adult audience, since she "pretty much passed over the rest of Bella's high school experience entirely, skipping ahead to a time in her life with more mature themes."
The book was therefore never published, and Meyer instead gave it to her older sister as a birthday present. No plans to formally publish the novel exist, as much of its plot was later explored in the three later books of the series.
However, Meyer has promised fans the opportunity to read excerpts from Forever Dawn. These excerpts were delayed until after the publishing of Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, to avoid spoiling the plotline. Forever Dawn would have meant a quick end to the series.
Forever Dawn is discussed on Meyer's official website in the Breaking Dawn FAQ section, and a cover designed by Meyer is included on the website.
