We’d hate to imagine where we’d be without Charlaine Harris and her book series The Southern Vampire Mysteries. We’d never have been introduced to the magical land of Bon Temps, La., or our favorite fanged characters.

But let’s never talk of that again.

For those of you who don’t know, True Blood is based on Charlaine’s book series better known as the “Sookie Stackhouse books.” The novels are told in a first-person narrative by Sookie, played by Anna Paquin on the show.

There are currently 11 books in the series, and the twelfth book, Deadlocked, is set to be released on May 1, 2012.

Back when she was in contract for only 10 books, Charlaine Harris revealed at Comic-Con in 2009 that she would be releasing at least three more, so we can expect a thirteenth book soon.
