A Message From Charlaine

A Message From CharlaineCharlaine Harris has updated the blog on her site and she has a message for those who are unhappy with True Blood and the way Alan Ball has changed it from the books to the show.

This is what she said;

As long as I’m covering odds and ends, let me just insert a fact here. I love the TV show “True Blood.” I don’t write it. So all the complaints about the way the plot lines are different from my books, about the physical differences between Anna Paquin and Sookie Stackhouse, about the direction and future of the show . . . they’re lost on me, and a waste of time to express to me, because I don’t have anything to do with the writing of the show or its casting. While I appreciate reader involvement in both entertainment experiences, I can only affect issues regarding the books.

I’m not trying to be ungracious or rude, but realistic. If you have a beef with the way the show is plotted or cast, please send these observations to HBO or to Alan Ball. As I opened my office mail yesterday, I found myself wondering if Alan gets letters about how I write the books.

I think I’ll ask him.

Here’s an even better idea…why doesn’t Charlaine forward the email messages and complaints from fans and send them on to Alan Ball and Co. too? I’m sure it would make much more of an impact, if she got involved and told Alan Ball how most of us are disappointed by how he has changed things from the books to the show. Sure, we can continue to voice our complaints too…but somehow I don’t think Alan Ball will listen unless it came from someone with more influence.
