Our wonderful author of the True Blood Series, Charlaine Harris has just announced that another one of her books is being optioned as a televisions show on CBS. The Harper Connelly Series is about a girl who was struck by lightning when she was young and became cursed with a gift of being able to know how people died. She can walk over graves or go into areas and tell how the victim actually died.
Haper travels with her step brother Tolliver and they have a very strong bond to say the least.
At this time there are 4 books in the series and was at one time confirmed on Charlaine’s site to be the last. But she stated today that this may give her fresh ideas to continue.
Here is what Charlaine Harris announced a few moments ago on her website:
I’m sure you’ll all be excited (as I was) to hear that CBS has taken an interest in Harper Connelly. Several months ago I signed a shopping agreement with the wonderful writer Kam Miller, and she was able to interest Scott Free (Tony and Ridley Scott’s company), and they were able to interest CBS. Though this is very early days in the project, we should know around January whether this will actually become a TV series. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed for Harper.
I was keeping this quiet, but it’s in Variety today!
The four books in the series are:
- Grave Sight
- Grave Surprise
- And Ice Cold Grave
- Grave Secret
These books can be found at your local book store as well as Amazon.com.
Hopefully this will be as much of a success as her True Blood Series.
