First Chapters of “Dead Ever After” Will Not Be Released

By  |  6 Comments

According to the official moderators on Charlaine Harris’ website, there will be no previews of the first few chapters of the final Sookie Stackhouse novel, Dead Ever After. In the past Ms. Harris has released the first two or three chapters to wet our appetites. But this time, and since it is the final book, she’d like the experience for her readers to be completely spoiler free, and we respect her decision.

Ms. Harris and her editor decided this year to forgo posting the preview chapter since this is the last book and they would like to keep it under wraps as much as possible until the book is released.

So we’re all waiting for May, 2013 together!

Thanks to Nothinbutjoy for the heads up on this one.

      Well Gracie, if you read the quote above, the reason is clearly explained by Charlaine’s website moderator. 😉

    I have not been able to post on here for quite some time. I couldn’t even let anyone know I was having problems, so doubt that anyone will see this. That being said, I understand why she is not giving us the teaser and all. But OMG how much harder the wait is NOW!!! I have filled my life with all things Sookie (and Eric) for so long now I have no idea how I am going to handle May 7th much less the unexpected fact that I actually have to wait all the way until then to get even a taste of Dead Ever After. (sigh) I have been keeping my obsession at bay by telling myself that the teaser chapters would be out soon. Oh well, I guess I just drive my family crazy with my weekly re-reading of the whole series and all of the short stories and so on. It might help if I can get back on here, since I have been climbing the walls since my computer finally died and we got this stupid new one with Windows 8 that never wants to let me do what I want to do anyway. ARG!!! How does this computer expect me to feed my True Blood needs? he he he (NO I am not really that crazy, but when I hear things like this it almost makes me feel that way.)
