Own a new Hallmark Recordable Storybook, “We’re Not Scared of Anything,” autographed by cast members of HBO’s hit show, “True Blood” (including Joe Manganiello, Rutina Wesley, Nelsan Ellis, Todd Lowe, Ashley Jones, Carrie Preston, and Kristin Bauer). Recordable Storybooks feature voice-capture technology, recording the reader’s voice directly into the book. When a page is turned, the book automatically plays the text on that page in the reader’s voice. Recordable Storybooks are great gifts for out-of-town relatives, parents in the military or parents who travel on business yet want to “read” to their kids from across the miles. Intended for two readers, one adult and one child, to read and record together. As bedtime approaches, Little Monster finds plenty to be scared of. Luckily, Big Monster is there to reassure him that the scary things aren’t so scary after all. Written in rhymed, metered verse, it encourages kids and eases nighttime fears in a fun, playful way. All proceeds from this auction will benefit the VFW Foundation to help military families through its Unmet Needs program. Photo courtesy of Hallmark

Which is a good platform for what happened this evening: Charlaine Harris is the guest of honor at the 2010 New England Crime Bake, and the after-pizza entertainment was a viewing of Episode 9 from TRUE BLOOD, Season 2: "I Will Rise Up." For those who don't view HBO programs, True Blood is a series featuring vampires, werefolk, the fey, and as central protagonist, Sookie Stackhouse, a sweet Southern girl with enormous courage and loyalty (and sex drive). She's featured in one of Charlaine Harris's series of books.
