Charlaine Harris Talks New Book and Rumor About Killing Bill

Posted on the 24 April 2011 by Thevault @The_Vault

Charlaine Harris talks new book and rumor about killing BillWith the release of the next book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, Dead Reckoning only days away (it will be released on May 3) and the return of True Blood in June, Charlaine Harris granted an interview to Girls In The Stacks.  She talks to them about the new book and below are a few excerpts from that interview:


You were quoted recently in the LA Times as saying the next two books will probably be the last two books in the Sookie series.  Has the story traveled where you thought it would?  Have the characters ever surprised you?  Did you plan to have this many Sookie books?

Yes, I’ve had a scene from the last book written in my head for years. Of course, I always have new ideas about the characters. That’s the fun part of writing. I never imagined the series would go on for so long.

We heard rumors that Alan Ball let slip that you were thinking of killing Bill, but you didn’t.  If this statement is true, what changed your mind?

Alan did let it slip. I had never said anything publicly because I knew I would have to answer a lot of questions. 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.

I think that worked out for the best . . . but now I have to answer a lot more questions!
