Here’s the blurb for Cemetery Girl:

Cemetery Girl centers around a teenage girl who awakens, bruised and bloody, in the grim surroundings of an old graveyard, with no memory of who she is, how she got there, or who left her for dead. All she knows is that whoever tried to kill her is still out there. Not knowing where to go, or who to trust, she avoids all human contact. She survives on stolen food and uses a cemetery crypt as her home. She takes the name Calexa from the name above her crypt.

Calexa soon makes a startling discovery:

She can see the spirits of the dead, and one in particular, can see her.

The victim of a murder that Calexa has inadvertently witnessed compels her to take action, even if it means her own life will be put at risk.

Now Calexa must make a decision: continue to hide to protect herself—or come forward to bring justice to the sad spirit who has reached out to her for help…

So what is GraphicAudio? This video will help explain this new listening experience:

Charlaine Harris Prepares for Life After Sookie Stackhouse

November 6, 2011

All Good Things Must Come to an End:

Charlaine Harris, author of Sookie Stackhouse novelsCharlaine Harris has spent many years filling the lives of millions of readers with the story of Sookie Stackhouse, and the love triangle that has ensued between Sookie, Eric, and Bill.  A story that inspired writer/director Alan Ball to create the HBO hit True Blood, based on the life of Sookie Stackhouse. We now know that Harris plans to close this love story at the conclusion of book 13 (we are two away).  And though I am sure this will sadden the millions of Team Bill Vs. Team Eric fans, the old saying “all good things must come to an end” comes to mind. And when one door closes another invariably opens, which is the case for one of America’s favorite authors. Harris has already set her sights on a new trilogy called Cemetery Girl

Life After Sookie Stackhouse

Charlaine Harris will team up with author Christopher Golden and illustrator Don Kramer, to bring to life this new venture. In a press release Harris revealed that “Since Chris has more experience in the graphic novel field than I do, we agreed to team up for my first ever collaboration. This is an exciting venture for both of us.”

The core of the story is about a girl who suffers from amnesia, while living in a cemetery, in search for her true identity. The first of the trilogy is set to be released in 2012, and will allow Harris to begin perfecting her written craft in the realm of the Graphic Novel arena.

In  the meantime, Sookie Stackhouse fans will have to begin preparing for the foregone conclusion that the love triangle is destined to end… sooner than we may want… with one lingering question — will Sookie choose Bill, Eric, or herself?

Charlaine Harris’ Plans for a New Graphic Novel Series

August 11, 2011

Graphic Novels Next On Charlaine Harris’ List!

Charlaine Harris, author of The Southern Vampire MysteriesCharlaine Harris, author of The Southern Vampire Mysteries aka: The Sookie Stackhouse Novels, has recently spoken up about her plans to create a new 3-book series of graphic novels! Harris revealed:

“I’m going to be working on a graphic novel next. I’m very excited about that. It’s called Cemetery Girl with Christopher Golden, and it’s a very exciting opportunity.”

The article also states that Harris first considered creating this storyline as a traditional novel, but decided to put it on hold until the horror and fantasy author, Christopher Golden (Hellboy/Buffy the Vampire Slayer), convinced her that it would be an excellent fit for a graphic novel series.  The graphic novel series will be centered on a woman who finds herself living in a cemetery with no recollection of her past, but she has a clear sense of some sort of mysterious burden hanging over her head.  No artist has joined Harris and Golden in their creation of the series yet, but Harris added:

“The publishing company that I’ve been with, Penguin, is going into graphic novels, so it’s a great book with a very original concept.”

I have never really taken an interest in graphic novels, but with Charlaine Harris on board, I’m game!  With as much as she has accomplished in her past writing escapades, you know that a graphic novel series will be just as amazing as the rest of her work!  What do you all think about Charlaine’s idea for a new series?  A woman+a cemetery+amnesia+worry is bound to equal a thrilling new series!  Any thoughts on the topic?  Be sure to leave us your comments below!
