Charlaine Harris Inks Deal for Graphic Novel Series

By Maryann Yin Comment

Charlaine Harris has landed a book deal with Penguin Group (USA)’s Ace Books imprint for her new graphic novel trilogy, Cemetery Girl. The first book will be released in 2013.

Comic artist Don Kramer will illustrate. As we previously noted, this project is a collaboration between Harris and writer Christopher Golden

Harris had this statement in the release: “I’d had the bones of the plot for Cemetery Girl in my head for a year when Chris suggested I re-imagine it as a graphic novel. Suddenly, the project made a lot more sense. Since Chris has more experience in the graphic novel field than I do, we agreed to team up for my first-ever collaboration. This is an exciting venture for both of us.”

As Harris starts a new series with Cemetery Girl, she is also preparing to end her beloved Southern Vampire series. The twelfth book, Deadlocked, will hit bookstores on May 1st 2012. The not-yet-titled conclusion will come out in 2013. (Photo Credit: Sigrid Estrada)
