Q&A; with Charlaine Harris

By Truebloodnetcom @truebloodnet

Charlaine Harris (credit Sigrid Estrada)You should all know by now that our favorite TV show, HBO‘s True Blood, is based on Charlaine Harris‘s Sookie Stackhouse novels.  But you may not know that book 11 in the series, Dead Reckoning, came out today!  The ladies over at “Girls in the Stacks”, a book review website, were lucky enough to land a short & sweet interview with Mrs. Harris.

She lets us know that the end is nigh — for the Sookie novels.  The grand total will be thirteen books.  She never thought there’d be so many, but she’s always coming up with new ideas.  Concerning the last book, she’s had a certain scene in her head for years.  Does she know what’s next?  Not really.  She does have many projects in the beginning stages, but she hasn’t picked one yet.

Was she planning on killing Bill?  Yes, that rumor is true… but it applies to book 9, Dead and Gone.  *Spoiler ahead, please stop reading if you haven’t read the book, but plan to!*

“Actually, during the scene in the hospital when the fairies are coming to kill everyone inside, I wrote a great death scene for Bill because I love to write grand death scenes. But when I thought about it, I wanted to keep Bill around because I like him. My editor weighed in on Bill’s survival, too.”

Is the show too graphic for her tastes?  She admits that it is more shocking seeing bare flesh vs. reading about it, but has confidence in the show’s creator, Alan Ball.  She likes what he’s done so far in capturing “the spirit of the books”.

Even though Mrs. Harris is becoming “quite a brand”, she is still in awe of her success.  She never saw it coming, and certainly hasn’t let it get to her head.  Neither has her family:

“My family is taking it in stride. We live much the same as we did before.”

Kudos to her family for remaining humble.  We wish Mrs. Harris success in all her future endeavors, which will no doubt keep us entertained for a long time to come!
