We hope to talk to Meredith this weekend on Talk Blood Radio !
Whoa-ho-ho there, True Blood. Last night delivered the sex fantasies out the wazoo. Let's take a ride on Jason Stackhouse's pansexual odyssey and visit Eric's handsome dreams in the wardrobe (a.k.a. Viking Vampire Narnia). We break it down, Pro/Con style.
Pro: Last week we thought True Blood was going to press repeat on the whole Mickens-shifter-dog-fighting plotline (that was terrible then and would be terrible now). But instead Tommy kills his parents. TWIST.

I don't know why I always finish books in such a desperate scramble. Like the old proverb of a horse running when it smells its own barn, I'm always dashing toward the finish line. I always seem to be about two weeks behind schedule (usually, I tell myself, due to traveling). And there's always a good reason I want to have the book finished by a definite date – a vacation, a wedding, another project that has to be finished, or whatever.
I'm in the usual rush to conclude Sookie 12. This is the longest one of my books has gone without a title, and I'm not happy about that, but it was hard to determine the theme of the book. There are generic titles with "dead" in them I could use for almost any book, but I do like the title to be relevant. The rose just hasn't bloomed; but I'll bet it will in the next two weeks.
While I know where I want to be at the end of each book, I don't always know how I'm getting there. Sometimes I surprise myself. Last night, Sookie got kidnapped, and I'm going to see how that shakes out. A character I thought was dead is probably alive, and I'm real happy for him. Then again, if the work doesn't go so well today, he may be dead again. This is the fun (and the panic) of being a writer. Every day brings decisions, and I have the power of life and death and procreation over all these people I've invented.
It's both fun and an awesome (and awful) responsibility. When I was writing by myself, before we all connected on the web and in so many personal appearances, it was easy to go my own way. Now my attention has been drawn to the fact that lots of people are waiting on my way to be picked. Scary!
My first responsibility is to my characters and to my own vision as a writer. There, my path is clearly marked.
Running neck and neck with that is my responsibility to write the best book I can. I always try. Sometimes, it works. Sometimes, the work falls short of my intention. That's the way it goes in any endeavor.
How readers react to the book is not my responsibility. There, I can only hope.
It took me some years and a lot of both joy and anguish to figure all this out.
And now, back to the computer screen, and a guy who may or may not be dead.
I'll find out in a page or two.

But will we see Eric's " Gracious plenty" ? : Alan Ball's says there will be a True Blood version of Sookie & Eric in shower but will we see the " gracious plenty " ?
Ball has said the there will "technically" be a scene in True Blood where we see Sookie and Eric in the shower. He said in an interview that “There will be a moment where Sookie and Eric are together in the shower. But it may be weirder and dirtier than the one in the book,"
Here's the exchange from the book

'True Blood' Stars Say It Gets Better Kristin " Pam" Bauer and Alex "Eric" Skarsgard - "It Gets Better" video
For those of you who couldn't get enough of Eric on last night's episode of "True Blood," don't worry because the Swedish actor is featured--along with his castmates, Rutina Wesley, Kristin Bauer, and creator Alan Ball--in a new set of "It Gets Better" PSA's.
The project, which was started last fall by writer Dan Savage in response to a wave of very public LGBT youth suicides, has had many celebrity contributors since its creation, but this is the first time the "True Blood" cast has taken part in the project.
The hit HBO show has been labeled "The Most Gay-Friendly Show on TV," and its story lines often revolve around "vampire rights," tolerance and acceptance.
Join the cast of True Blood as they take the “It Gets Better” pledge: http://www.itgetsbetter.org. The Trevor Project offers help to any young person who is struggling.
The Trevor Project is determined to end suicide among LGBTQ youth by providing life-saving and life-affirming resources including our nationwide, 24/7 crisis intervention lifeline, digital community and advocacy/educational programs that create a safe, supportive and positive environment for everyone.
