Charlaine Harris, Dark Fantasy, Interview

We are so excited for the publication of Dead Ever After, the final Sookie Stackhouse novel. But before we get to the finale we’re looking back at the entire series. Last summer we sat down with Charlaine Harris and filmed a series of interviews discussing the Sookie Stackhouse novels. We asked Charlaine to share a special memory with all her fans to help us say Farewell to Sookie.

So, without any further ado, let’s continue our countdown with Dead as a Doornail.

Missed our other interviews? You can watch them all here.

Dead Ever After will be available where all good books are sold on the 7th May.
