Charlaine Harris Inks Deal for Graphic Novel Series

Charlaine Harris has landed a book deal with Penguin Group (USA)’s Ace Books imprint for her new graphic novel trilogy, Cemetery Girl. The first book will be released in 2013.

Comic artist Don Kramer will illustrate. As we previously noted, this project is a collaboration between Harris and writer Christopher Golden

Harris had this statement in the release: “I’d had the bones of the plot for Cemetery Girl in my head for a year when Chris suggested I re-imagine it as a graphic novel. Suddenly, the project made a lot more sense. Since Chris has more experience in the graphic novel field than I do, we agreed to team up for my first-ever collaboration. This is an exciting venture for both of us.”

Charlaine Harris To End Sookie Stackhouse Series

Paranormal novelist Charlaine Harris will be closing the coffin on her Southern Vampire series. Harris told PopcornBiz that she intends to end Sookie Stackhouse‘s story on book thirteen.

Harris explained: “I think it’ll be total closure. I don’t go back to things once I’ve finished them. That’s kind of what I do. I don’t want to write Sookie after I get stale. Yeah, I’ll miss them, I’m sure, because I have lived with them for quite a long time – 12 years now. And it did take two years to sell the first book. But I think writers like to do different things. At least this writer does.”

With two more books to go and HBO’s True Blood series, fans don’t have to say goodbye to Sookie just yet.
