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.


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.
