Series three is in development and is scheduled for a June start in the US.
Harris’ backlist titles about the psychic waitress’ vampire adventures will be relaunched from 11th February with a new look tying into FX’s promotional campaign for season two. The nine novels will be reissued as £6.99 paperbacks, with a black-and-white look featuring different characters from the show. The £40 eight-book boxed set will be relaunched with the new look.
Also showing off the new designs will be The True Blood Omnibus 2 (featuring titles 4-6, Dead to the World, Dead as a Doornail and Definitely Dead) to be published on 16th September as a £14.99 trade paperback; plus the new title in the series, Dead in the Family, which is published on 27th May as a £12.99 hardback, and the paperback of Dead and Gone (£6.99, 1st April).
A Touch of Dead, an illustrated collection of short stories, is due for paperback release on 19th August but will retain its hardback look.
To support the publishing bonanza, Harris will make her first UK visit on 9th and 10th March. The publisher is hoping to hold a Q&A event and a full media programme.
