Sookie Stackhouse Book 10: Dead in the Family 1st Chapter to be released in the next 10 days!

TES writes.... Morning, D! I checked CH's site and she posted this earlier today under the, "Questions About the Sookie Stackhouse Series" topic:7419 duckpond100 2009-12-09 06:28
What question?
Oh, you mean the one WAY, WAY back? You know you're going to have to wait until the next book to find out more about Sookie's reaction to the marriage. And I'll put up the begining of the next book within the next week and a half. The question about the timing of the next book is harder to answer, since the first pages of it skip over several weeks, hitting down every now and then.
Charlaine Harris

So only another 1.5 weeks to go...hopefully, the cover art will also be released around the same time. :D

Vampires Beware: Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Owns the World’s Largest Collection of Authentic Vampire Killing Kits

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! has the world’s largest collection of authentic vampire killing kits. The kits were acquired by people in preparation of possibly meeting a vampire during their international travels to Eastern Europe and their usage dates back to the mid-1800s. Most were created in the Boston area and were available by mail order. They contain a variety of items designed to bring a vampire to its knees. Most contain a wooden stake, Bible, crucifix, pistol with lead bullets, gunpowder, garlic and glass vials that held various concoctions.

The kits were purchased by wealthy Americans headed to Eastern Europe – Transylvania then, Romania now. Travelers brought back terrifying tales of vampires with them from the region – well before Dracula was brought to life by Bram Stoker.
