    In my recent research in Tudor history, I’ve learned telling ghost stories at Christmas was a huge tradition in Early Modern England–Pre-dating Dickens! For those who already knew this, as well as for those who have just found out, I found this fun read: https://www.oldstyletales.com/single-post/2013/12/23/12-great-ghost-stories-for-christmas

    Helloooo? echoooo 🙂 Everybody here? How fun is this?! I like our new digs! Thank you, Dawn!

    I saw in one of our last threads that “True Blood” is having a re-boot. It’s funny, I never watched the show when it started because I had just been through a c-section to be followed by two more c-sections totaling three children in three and a half years so I had had enough of blood and romance for a while. My husband kept telling me “You would LOVE this! It has a fairy in it! And a vampire!”

    “Uh-huh” I’d grunt as I passed through the family room with a dirty diaper. (to be fair, he was a five star dad who would often feed our babies in the night so I could sleep!!)

    It wasn’t until my children could get in a car on their own that I could address it– but by then the show was off the air–I think it was the summer of 2015 but I was just as happy to start with the books! And I fell in love!! I just adored Sookie and everyone in the book (Husband: “I told you so!”). Some people prefer to refer to the Sookie Stackhouse series as campy–and they are fun–but I also found them enormously profound. Like Gene Roddenberry, Ms.C has used extraordinary characters to teach us about ourselves.

    Since reading the books, I’ve loved Alan Ball’s creative response. He really makes the characters come alive (though mostly undead ;)).

    Maybe I missed this info (and right now I feel like Alice in Wonderland finding my way through the new site–sorry-I’m so not tech savvy!) But are you writing books for the series, Ms. C ? Or are they based on the follow up Sookie short stories? In other words, is there somewhere to read first? 🙂
