Charlaine HarrisCharlaine Harris will be the special guest for the Tru Blood & Gold Ball at REPUBLIC NEW ORLEANS, 828 South Peters Street in New Orleans on October 30.  The Ball is sponsored by the Anne Rice Vampire Lestat Fan Club (ARVLFC) who are reaching out to True Blood and Sookie Stackhouse fans with vampire solidarity.

The event is for adults 18 and over, with no exceptions, and costumes, creative attire, and evening wear are strongly encouraged by organizers.  The show starts at 9:00 pm and ends at 2:00 am (doors open at 8:00 pm).  Other guests include Gabrielle Faust, creator of the Eternal Vigilance series, and musical guests Saints of Ruin, the Kinky Tuscaderos, and Marc Gunn.

Charlaine told organizers that she is very “excited…to be coming to the party and she is even having a special costume made for the occasion!”  In addition, organizers say there will be an opportunity for Q&A with Charlaine and:

If you submit a question you may be asked to read it to her at the party. Submit all questions via email to [Suzie Quiroz] and she will include them in a list for consideration.

Tickets are still available exclusively through the ARVLFC website to attend this event ($20 for members, $35 for non-members), though October 15 is the last day to have tickets mailed to your address, and will be sent through certified mail.  If you request shipping, you must add $6.00 for shipping to your order.  Shipped tickets will require a signature for delivery.  After October 15, all tickets will be held at the will-call window for pickup.  Non-members may only order up to four tickets.

    I’m going! I’m going to New Orleans for my 30th birthday and then going to Voodoo Fest. I hope I get to meet Charlaine for a second time!

      I’m going too, that is me and about 20 or so of my friends. We’ll be celebrating my 50th Birthday. We plan to have a big weekend with a Street Car ride down St Charles Ave to Brunch on South Carrolton followed by the book signing at Garden District Book Store. Tricks and Treats in the French Quarter on Saterday Night. Sunday we’ll go to Mass at St Louis Cathedral and then meet again at Court of two Sisters.
      I met Ms. Harris this summer at an event in Shreveport, she is charming. I hope to have the oppertunity to talk with her again.
