August 29, 2014 by Rachel Tsoumbakos
Find Out Where She Will Be Attending:
Fans of HBO’s True Blood will know author Charlaine Harris as the woman who created Sookie Stackhouse and Bon Temps in her book series, Southern Vampire Mysteries. As of the 30th of August 2014, Charlaine will touch down in London, England to kick off her UK tour for her latest book, Midnight Crossroad (published in March 2014).
From Charlaine Harris, the bestselling author who created Sookie Stackhouse the world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, comes a new, darker world – populated by more strangers than friends. But then, that’s how the locals prefer it?
Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and Davy Road. It’s a pretty standard dried-up western town.
There’s a pawnshop (someone lives in the basement and is seen only at night). There’s a diner (people who are just passing through tend not to linger). And there’s new resident Manfred Bernardo, who thinks he’s found the perfect place to work in private (and who has secrets of his own).
Stop at the one traffic light in town, and everything looks normal. Stay awhile, and learn the truth . . .
Charlaine will start her tour with a book signing at Forbidden Planet. Her full schedule is bellow:
- 31st August – Forbidden Planet, London – Signing – 1-2pm
