Sookie Stackhouse – True Blood – Coming to End?
Think it can be a challenge keeping up to date on all the new episodes of True Blood? Is being a Fangbanger taking over your life? Well, try being the author of the long line of exciting books the HBO series is based upon.
Charlaine Harris has that honor. Her novel, “Dead Reckoning,” the 11th installment in her Sookie Stackhouse (Southern Vampire) Series, hits bookstores in May, according to the LA Times. “Truthfully, the next two books will probably be the last two books in the series,” Harris said last week. Keeping readers riveted has been draining.
“I still love Sookie,” the author says, “but I’m beginning to want to write something else, and Sookie’s kind of taken over my life. I was able to write other things for the first few years I was involved in Sookie, but then after the start of the television show she took over so much of my time because of my increased publicity obligations that it’s been very hard to write other things, and I really need to do that.”
In fact, those other things Harris wrote about include her Aurora Teagarden Series and her Lily Bard (Shakespeare) Series. And don’t worry, the author doesn’t seem to intend to scurry away from the paranormal altogether.
To satisfy her creative urges, Harris has embarked on a new endeavor, an online game called Dying for Daylight, that prominently features her vampire protagonist, Dahlia Lynley-Chivers, a ruthless, fashion-conscious vamp who has appeared in several of Harris’ short stories.
“She’s one of my favorite characters,” Harris said. “Since HBO owns all the development rights to anything related to Sookie, Dahlia seemed a natural choice for this. She’s so visual, she’s so proud of the way she looks and she’s so adventuresome that it seemed like a really good match. I had been quite hopeful that someone would approach me about doing a game since some of my fellow writers had been involved in that,” Harris said. “I thought that would be neat. Of course we had to talk a little while to decide what character would adapt best to the medium. I-play just had such a good idea and they were so enthusiastic it was very easy to make the decision to go with them.”
What does all of this mean for True Blood? I wouldn’t worry. The series is in season four. There’s plenty of time it can run before it catches up to the final novels. There are also short stories to draw from, too. Speaking of the show, here’s some news about its king.
