GINJER BUCHANAN, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF OF ACE/ROC BOOKS, GIVES AN INSIDE VIEW OF CHARLAINE HARRIS' BELOVED SERIES

Midnight Crossroad

Charlaine Harris' long-time editor, Ginjer Buchanan, reflects on the writer's wildly successful Sookie Stackhouse novels and her newest endeavor. 

"It was bittersweet to work on the last book in the series, Dead Ever After in 2013. The question then was—what’s next for Charlaine? Well, my respect for her as an author only grew when I read the “what’s next”, Midnight Crossroad, the first of a trilogy set in the small—and odd—Texas town of Midnight.

In writing Midnight Crossroad, Charlaine has chosen to challenge herself as a writer, when she could have taken the easy path and done something like a direct Sookie spin-off. Though the book maintains the major element that has run through all of her work (the strong sense of place), it represents a departure for her in two ways—the story is told third person and from multiple (three to be exact) viewpoints."
