So, I guess this means Jason and Michelle survive (literally) DEA. No murder victims there...not that I seriously considered either to be the victim. Also, Hunter's fate is not determined in DEA if we need the coda to tell us about him. I guess that narrows things down a tad LOL

Bethany Zanelli is a new character. She's mentioned in DEA and in the short story "The Blue Hereafter," featuring Manfred and Sookie, which will appear in "Weird World of Sports", my next anthology with Toni L.P. Kelner.

That's exciting! I love Manfred, and to read about both Manfred and Sookie sounds like a blast. You've certainly given me something to look forward to after May.
I can't wait to meet Bethany either.
Thank you Maker.

Thank you, Maker!

The fact that Eric isn't represented on the cover (unless he's one of the bats?) has me worried that Sookie doesn't end up with him. Or worse - he dies. Oh PLEASE let it not be so!

There are no vampires represented on the cover of DEA, but you should look at the endpapers that will be in DEA.

If this link doesn't work, you can see Lisa's work in the News section on CH's site.

I am also a big Eric fan. There are so many people who think that the series will be a complete loss if their favorite suitor doesn't end up as HEA. It is impossible for Ms. Harris to please us all. She has done an amazing job telling Sookie's story so far and it will end as it should.

Bethany is a minor but necessary character.

You're right, caseybook. There's not any way I could please all my readers, so I wrote the book I'd always planned to write to end the series. Writers have to stay true to their own vision.

Maker when will your "Weird World of Sports", my next anthology with Toni L.P. Kelner. come out?
Thank you very much.
I totally agree- you need to stay true to your artistic vision. Most writers have a basic outline they follow. I am sure after your successful 1st book, the rest followed and you had an outline as well as how basically you wanted your series to end. I know you left some "wiggle" room. You do have the prerogative to change things up sometimes.
I know for the better.

3851 Maker   2013-03-02 12:18

I did not have an outline, but I had a general plan of how the series would end. I stuck to it, because it was the right ending. "Weird World of Sports" will be out in -- well, actually, I don't have the date, but as soon as I do I'll post it here. It's shaping up VERY well.
