What Will Happen AFTER the Sookie Stackhouse Books End?

April 26, 2013

Charlaine Harris Announces Pre-Order and a Surprise for True Blood Fans in October:

Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris (Southern Vampire Mysteries series/ Sookie Stackhouse/ True Blood)While fans of HBO’s True Blood may not have read the books by Charlaine Harris that inspired the TV show, for book fans, the end of an era is approaching.

Not only is book 13 (Dead Ever After) in the Southern Vampire Mysteries series due for release May 7th, it is also the last book to be penned in this series.

Technically.

Fans will find out who Sookie chooses in Dead Ever After. For some this will be a welcome ending, for others (who are fans of which ever team Sookie doesn’t pick), it will be bitter-sweet. But recently, Charlaine Harris announced there would be a 14th book released in this series!

After Dead: What Came Next in the World of Sookie Stackhouse, will be available via Amazon and all other good book retailers from the 29th of October 2013. Amazon.com offers the following blurb:

Dead Ever After marked the end of the Sookie Stackhouse novels—a series that garnered millions of fans and spawned the hit HBO television show True Blood. It also stoked a hunger that will never die…a hunger to know what happened next.

With characters arranged alphabetically—from the Ancient Pythoness to Bethany Zanelli—bestselling author Charlaine Harris takes fans into the future of their favorite residents of Bon Temps and environs. You’ll learn how Michele and Jason’s marriage fared, what happened to Sookie’s cousin Hunter, and whether Tara and JB’s twins grew up to be solid citizens.

This coda provides the answers to your lingering questions—including details of Sookie’s own happily-ever-after…

The book will feature extensive interior art by acclaimed Sookie artist Lisa Desimini, including a Sookieverse Alphabet, color endpapers, and several full-page black and white interior illustrations.

While it appears that some parts will be laid out in a similar fashion to the previously released The Sookie Stackhouse Companionit seems there will also be plenty of new stuff from the author as well.

Also, Charlaine Harris has announced on her website that signed copies of Dead Ever After can be purchased from certain locations. You can view the list here for the stores closest to you.

You can pre-order Dead Ever After and After Dead from Amazon by clicking the links above.

Also, an interview that Charlaine Harris did with USA Today’s Carol Memmott about the culmination of her Southern Vampire Mysteries series can be viewed here.

Dead Ever After Ending Leaked! Charlaine Harris Asks Fans Not to Spoil it for Others

April 25, 2013

German Fan Posts Ending Online:

Dead Ever After FB CoverFor fans of the Sookie Stackhouse books; the Southern Vampire Mysteries series, May the 7th seems such a long way away. For one German fan though, it was just too long a wait.

While we have no idea who this fan is or how they obtained an early release copy of Dead Ever After, the results are still the same: the ending has been leaked online and now we all have the opportunity to find out who Sookie picks and how the series ends.

Charlaine Harris issued the following statement today on her Facebook page:

By now some of you know that a reader in Germany obtained a copy of DEAD EVER AFTER and decided to post the ending online. While this is unfortunate, I wanted to say this to all of you: Even if you *personally* are unhappy with the ending, please don’t spoil it for other readers. DEAD EVER AFTER goes on sale on May 7th; after that date, you are more that welcome to come here and tell me how much you like – or don’t like – the choices I’ve made for Sookie. But from one Sookie fan to another, I’m asking you all to please not spoil the book for other readers. Thank you so much for your continued support.

~Charlaine Harris

Here at TrueBloodNet.com, we fully support Charlaine Harris’ request and will not be spoiling the end or posting ANY links to sites that are displaying the ending of Dead Ever After. We also request that while fans are visiting TrueBloodNet.com, they refrain from mentioning the ending or any parts of book 13, Dead Ever After until AFTER May 7th.

Thanking you in Anticipation,

The staff at TrueBloodNet.com

True Blood’s Main Maker Dishes About Sookie’s Swan Song:

April 11, 2013

Author Charlaine Harris Talks About “Dead Ever After”, the Final Southern Vampire Installment

DEAD-EVER-AFTER-COVER

Charlaine Harris, author of the Southern Vampire series of books, sat down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss the end of Sookie’s story. ‘Dead Ever After’ is the 13th, and final book in the series that inspired HBO’s True Blood, and Ms. Harris says this is the conclusion she had always planned to write. Despite reader complaints or requests, Ms. Harris remained true to her own vision of the universe she created.

While Ms. Harris enjoyed the world she built around the town of Bon Temp, Louisiana, she feels that she has told all of Sookie’s story there is to tell. While she received much reader feedback, Ms. Harris knows her characters best and remained true to her vision. She is very excited to be moving on to new projects now.

“I’m sorry, this is the universe I’m the queen of. The readers can get pretty angry and tell me I’m writing the characters wrong. I hardly see how that could be possible. They’re my characters!”

Eric is a Fully Developed Character and Ms. Harris Loves How True Blood is Different from Her Novels

When asked about the sometimes angry reaction to how she has occasionally written the character of Eric, Ms. Harris responds that she believes she created a fully developed character, with both good and bad traits. Readers don’t always react well when one of Eric’s less attractive traits plays into the story she is telling.

Ms. Harris enjoys the True Blood series, especially in the way it differs from her books. She admires the writers of the show, and doesn’t believe she could ever successfully write a script for True Blood.

“But at the same time, True Blood gives you the same characters in a completely new environment.”

As far as future projects go, Ms. Harris has begun a brand new series. She has also written a graphic novel with Christopher Golden that is due to be released in December of this year. Currently, she is working on another anthology with Toni Kelner, and is editing a number of stories. As for what type of project Ms. Harris would like to work on if she had the chance, she would like to have one of her books made into a movie. Having learned how television works, that seems to be a logical next step.

For fans of the original books that inspired the series, True Blood, ‘Dead Ever After’ releases May 7th.
