The end is near for Sookie Stackhouse–at least for the series of novels about her exploits.
The best-selling series by Charlaine Harris could come to an end after the next three novels are published.
Harris made the announcement while promoting a new collection of short stories about Stackhouse and company.
“I’ve signed a contract to write three more after the one that’s coming out in May, and they may be the last three,” Harris told CNN. “Probably by then I will have lived with Sookie long enough.”
Harris said she doesn’t want to keep the books going if Sookie’s stories start feeling played out. “I hope I have enough sense to walk away before that happens.”
If Harris follows through on the current plan, the series would end at a dozen books.
The novels were the basis for HBO’s critically lauded series, “True Blood.”
