COVERS CHECKLIST

THE STORY SO FAR... TRUE BLOOD chronicles the backwoods Louisiana town of Bon Temps... where vampires have emerged from the coffin and no longer need humans for their fix with the creation of synthetic blood. Sookie Stackhouse works as a waitress at the rural bar Merlotte’s . Though outwardly a typical young woman, she keeps a dangerous secret: she has the ability to hear the thoughts of others. Her situation is further complicated when the bar gets its first vampire patron—173-year-old Bill Compton—and the two outsiders are immediately drawn to each other. TRUE BLOOD is a dark and sexy tale that boldly delves into the heart—and the neck—of the Deep South.
