Dead and Gone cover released

We can expect the 1st chapter early next week!

Sookie Stackhouse has finally settled into a relationship with the Viking vampire Eric, and her errant brother Jason seems to have his life in order, too. But all the other people in Sookie’s life – Eric himself, her former lover Bill, her friend and boss Sam – are having family problems. Eric’s maker shows up with Eric’s ‘brother’ in tow, the ailing Bill can only be healed by a blood sibling, and Sam’s brother’s marriage is about to take place …or will it? The furor raised by the coming out of the two-natured has yet to settle; some people are just not ready to sit down to dinner with a man who turns into a dog. And Sookie herself is still recovering from her last ordeal. She’s definitely improving, physically and mentally, but she’s always going to have some dark moments now. The werewolves tell her that there have been strange and ominous passers-by in the Stackhouse woods; now Sookie is about to come face-to-face with one of her more distant relatives…

Oh! thank you this is just great.

Sorry i had to leave before i got
finished.So we know that Sookie and
Eric are going to have a revelation
and i think that shows on the cover
by them holding out their hands to
each other,the rose i think which is between them means it will not go
smoothly ,could be like a thorn in
their side or trouble in the families
of some of the charactors. (IMO)and
we also know that Eric will be large
and in charge which could mean that
something is going to happen or has

Does that look like a bump where her belly should be? Could be just my imagination....

For those who really enjoy the Southern Vamp Mysteries book covers, here is Lisa Desimini's site where you can see clear pics of the covers:

Ho, Rita, "Eric will be large
and in charge". I love that. Isn't that how we want our Viking to be? I just worry that she's going to break up the happy couple that make me so happy when they are together. I'm re-listening to Dead and Gone on my iPod right now. I'll probably listen to a bunch of them before Bk 10 comes out.

I do love the original covers and this one is no exception. Like all of you, I'm looking forward to that first chapter.

Rita said...

Sharon i read on Ms.CH site some time
or one of her interviews where she said Eric would be large and in charge,back in the summer i think i
love all the original covers to.Yes
that is how we want him.

Rita said...

Forgot Sharon i go to bed with my
ipod every night,some times i do go to sleep and wakeup to cut it off
listening to DTTW right now.

Joan said...

To TeamEricSookie: Thank you for that link!

I bet Bill is going to tell Andy that they are related. That way he can heal.

Sharon said...

Hi Rita, I love DTTW. I can't decide if it or Dead and Gone are my favorites, but I think DTTW because it has so much Eric in it. I almost dread what AB will do to DTTW, which should be season 4.

Rita said...

Hi Sharon,DTTW then DAG to i also
wonder what AB will do. But you know
i have been rereading all the books
have been seeing a scene or a phrase
from other books in season #2 so i think he really is already putting
maybe 2 books together at a time,so i guess some things will get in and some wont,you and Dallas have a nice evening.
