Charlaine Harris Confirms a 12th Sookie Stackhouse Novel

January 18, 2011 by  

Excellent News for Fans of the Novels:

Charlaine Harris Author of Sookie Stackhouse NovelsCharlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels, recently confirmed to fans on her Facebook page that there will in fact be a twelfth Sookie novel. She began work on it recently, but commented that she “should have started it in November, but I had to take some time off.” With Sookie novels usually debuting in May, this means that fans can look forward to Dead Reckoning this May, which will be the eleventh book, and then the as yet untitled twelfth book in May of 2012 (that’s just speculation, based on the release dates of all the other novels, and Harris’s own comment that “Sookie is ALWAYS in May — the full length novels, that is.”)

What’s Coming Out This Year?

This year, Harris has several projects slated for release that should excite both fans of her Sookie Stackhouse novels and die hard Truebies. As previously mentioned, Dead Reckoning, the eleventh Sookie novel, will be released on May 3, 2011. The first chapter is available on Harris’s official website. The cover, released in November, gives plenty of tidbits to speculate about – Sookie is alone on the covers, surrounded by burning pages falling from the sky.

In September of this year, The Sookie Stackhouse Companion will be released. Originally slated for an earlier release, it got pushed back due to confusion amongst the contributors. The books promises an all new Sookie novella, and an exclusive interview with Alan Ball. Although Harris has stated the release is scheduled for September, has the official date listed as August 31. 2011. I’m sure no one will complain about getting their hands on it a day early!

Both books are available for pre-order now. Are you looking forward to them?
