    I hope to get to meet Charlaine at this appearance. I missed her the last time she was in Arkansas. I live here in Little Rock and there is no excuse for me not to meet her and get one of my books signed. She looks really good in this picture, btw.

  • CH was supposed to have come to OZ last year but her mother died so she cancelled. We are having another True Blood Con later this year – maybe this time??

      Wow Lizzie, if she comes, hope you meet her. That would be great.

    I wish Charlaine would come to the Western New York area. I would love to meet her in personal. I chatted with her briefly on her website and she did respond and answer my questions. Seems like a very nice woman.
