True Blood video: Russell is backkkkk! May 28, 2012

HBO aired this new TRUE BLOOD series 5 trailer just before GAME OF THRONES last night (May 27) and it’s clear that Russell Edgington is back!

The video shows a lot, including  one scene where Sookie quips, “A 3,000-year old vampire wants to suck my blood. Must be Thursday!” We hear Pam asking “How could you think I would dig up Russell Edgington.” Eric saying “I trust no one.” And in another, Bill says “There’s a leak somewhere.”

Other tidbits: Eric gets a visit from the Vampire Authority, the werewolf pack comes after Sam and we meet Roman, played by Christopher Meloni.

This will be Alan Ball’s last season on True Blood, and Sookie watchers wonder how Anna Paquin’s true life pregnancy will play into — or not — in this season. What do you think, will we have a pregnant Sookie at the end of this season?

Season No. 5 of TRUE BLOOD airs on June 10.

Charlaine Harris says the final book in the  Sookie Stackhouse  Series — DEAD EVER AFTER — will go on sale on May, 7, 2013. Now we knew the last book would come in May — just not the date. Apparently there was a bit of confusion on her Facebook page where she announced this today because here’s what she posted!

OOPS — Here’s the correct date!

I always thought YA author Alyson NoelEVERMORE/The Immortals series  — had a cool website(s) and blog. But now she’s got more.

For her next book — FATED — due out May 22, she’s not only designed a rockin’ new website for the Soul Seekers series (CLICK HERE) but she’s got an iPhone app! Now, this isn’t the most interactive app, but it’s the first one I’ve seen. It mostly links to her Pinterest and Facebook pages, videos, photos and includes a store and book tour schedule. Does your fave author have an app or cool website, Pinterest page? Let me know!

If you’re looking for something less techy, Alyson also is giving away some earrings if you pre-order FATED. But you have to be one of the first 3,000. CLICK HERE for deets. And if you want to hear her playlist for the novel, go HERE.

What’s FATED about? Here’s the description from the author’s website:

Strange things are happening to Daire Santos. Crows mock her, glowing people stalk her, time stops without warning, and a beautiful boy with unearthly blue eyes haunts all her dreams. Fearing for her daughter’s sanity, Daire’s mother sends her to live with the grandmother she’s never met, but who recognizes the visions for what they truly are—the call to her destiny as a Soul Seeker—one who can navigate the worlds between the living and dead.

There on the dusty plains of Enchantment, New Mexico, Daire sets out to harness the powers of her ancestral legacy, but it’s when she meets Dace, the boy from her dreams, when things take an alarming turn. Forcing Daire to discover if Dace is the one guy she’s meant to be with…or if he’s allied with the enemy she’s destined to destroy.

You can read more about the novel at RT Magazine’s “Authors in the Spotlight” feature. There’s an excerpt and a letter to readers from Alyson. CLICK HERE to start reading!
