++ Charlaine Harris’ extremely popular Sookie Stackhouse series, which inspired HBO’s True Blood, will be coming to an end after book 13 (slated for May 2013). However, she’s already busy writing Cemetery Girl, the first volume in a graphic novel trilogy illustrated by Don Kramer. The upcoming series will follow an amnesiac girl living alone in a graveyard.

++ Amazon, which has been steadily growing its roster of authors, has announced that it will publish Penny Marshall’s memoir My Mother Was Nuts in Fall 2012. Amazon’s offer for the memoir rights, which is said to have been considerable, beat out those of several other traditional publishers. Marshall’s literary agent Dan Strone says that Amazon’s offer also included a much higher royalty on e-books than the 25 percent normally given by publishers.

    This is very good news. The Sookie books ran out of steam about three novels ago. Every time Ms. Harris begins a new series, it seems to refresh her writing – I just hope that churning out the Stackhouse novels and all of their related comics, novellas, short stories and merchandise hasn’t burned her out, creatively.

    I agree. Its time for the Sookie books to end. Truthfully the last three have been horrible. Sookie used to be one of the heroines i admired. Now i can’t stand her. I hope she can give the books a decent ending. Ive loved all of ms. harriss other books so I look forward to a new series.

    I happen to love the Sookie Stackhouse novels and I will admit there are some that I love more than others but, I still believe they are good reads. In fact my hope is that she will continue writing them in the future. I still think Sookie still exhibits many qualities that I wish more women possessed.

    i was hoping that m/s Harris would just give us a chapter on book 13 , just as she did on the last book 12 . it sort of got me into the mood ,after reading that one chapter, i liked the ‘feel ‘ of the new story . i hope that sookie has a baby by a fae , that way her child will live a very long time . i would be content ,
