Interview with Charlaine Harris on ‘Dead Reckoning’

Posted on the 26 April 2011 by Thevault @The_Vault

Interview with Charlaine Harris on ‘Dead Reckoning’Charlaine Harris’ new book, in the Sookie Stackhouse series, Dead Reckoning is coming out this week and she has answered some questions for TVNZ.

Below if a portion of the exclusive Q&A they had with her:

Can you tell us a little bit about your latest novel in the Sookie Stackhouse series, Dead Reckoning?
Charlaine: Yes, a little. My books aren’t long enough to share a lot! Dead Reckoning deals with Sookie learning about her heritage, the struggles of the fae left in our world, and the vampires of Louisiana coping (or not) with the new regime.

The books are getting noticeably darker in tone as they progress, especially after Sookie’s traumatic experiences in Dead and Gone. Were you influenced by the TV series to go a little darker or was it always planned?
I don’t see the show as darker than the books. All the bad things that happen in the books happen on “True Blood,” though perhaps the TV show has even MORE stuff. I knew that as Sookie was drawn in more and more into vampire politics, the books would get darker.

What do you think of True Blood and Alan Ball’s interpretation of the world you created?
I think Alan is a genius, and I’m always excited to see what he’s put up on the screen.

Clearly you’re on Team Eric in the books but has Stephen Moyer managed to sway you back towards Bill at all?
I dislike the idea of teams. The story I’m telling is Sookie’s, and since all the characters come from my head, it’s not like I could “favour” one of them more than the other.

Which character has been your favourite to write for?
Pam is always fun to write, but there again, there are always fun moments with any character.
