The Sookie Stackhouse Companion book won’t be hitting shelves as soon as we had originally thought. Due to the recent death of her mother, Charlaine Harris has pushed back the release date for the book, originally to be released in February of 2011. Dead Reckoning, the much anticipated 11th book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, will still be released in May of 2011.
Ms. Harris stated to her fans:
Trying to return to work. Unfortunately, the Sookie Companion will have to be bumped back in publication date. That deadline sailed by, and there is a lot of editing still to do. I’ll put the new date up when I have it. DEAD RECKONING is firmly on track for May, though.
Greatest sympathies go out to Ms. Harris and her family in her time of need.
