Did you catch the new trailer for Season 5? Looks like we’re finally going to see flashbacks of Pam’s turning!
With one month left to go until season 5 premieres, HBO has released some great new ads featuring all the major characters. Here’s Eric (click for full size):
Edit: This post had a link to all the promos, but it looks like HBO took them down for some reason. I’m sure they’ll be back, so just keep an eye on the True Blood Facebook page.Tags: Season 5
In this week’s episode of Dead Air, Tiffany and I were joined by Tina (SVB) of Sookieverse Blog to discuss Deadlocked. Want to hear Tina say “essential spark” in her awesome accent one more time? Want to know why everyone wants Tiffany to lose $20 next year? Listen – or listen again – to the episode!
Please use the comments section on this post to discuss your reactions to book 12! And beware of spoilers, obviously.
We’ll be talking about the book on Dead Air next Monday night, May 7. You can join us in the chat room or on the phone to gush, rant, theorize, and fangirl to your heart’s content. We want to hear from you!Tags: Book 12
Not that I need to remind any of you, I’m sure (grin), but book 12 comes out next Tuesday, May 1! We’re all going to have a lot to say, so be sure to join us for Dead Air on Monday night, May 7. Tell us your thoughts – the good, the bad, and the fangirly – on the phone or in the chat room.
Update: Tiffany and I are going to be joined by SVB from Sookieverse. We’re so excited to have her for this episode!Tags: Book 12, Dead Air
The “I Write the Songs” fanfiction contest is being rebooted just in time for book 12 and season 5! Visit the contest blog here and the ff.net profile page here. (And, of course, we’d love for you to submit your stories to the EN.net archive as well!)

Fellow Eric-lovers, I know I’ve been a negligent webmiss for the past months. I started grad school in the fall, and I’ve been happily enjoying another new obsession (Hunger Games!) while I take a short break from Sookieland. Sometimes you just get burnt out on things, you know? But I will be back to updating this site regularly as Deadlocked and season 5 draw closer.
And, of course, there’s still Dead Air on Monday nights following new episodes of The Vampire Diaries. In the spring, Dead Air will revert back to being an Eric-centric podcast as we discuss book 12, dissect and fangirl over the new season promos, do a book 5 group read, and then talk about each episode of season 5.
So thanks for bearing with me. Team Eric – now and always!
The time has rolled around when I need to renew EN.net’s account on Blog Talk Radio so that we can continue to bring you Dead Air – interviews, episode discussions, and theme shows on fanfiction and other topics. The cost to renew for the year is $300. Last year, fans sent us every last penny we needed, and I was amazingly grateful. I’m hoping that you can help us again this year because I’m broke – in fact, the reason the site was down for several days was because the domain expired, and I couldn’t afford to renew it! Without your help, Dead Air will have to be put on hold indefinitely.
So please, please, please click the “donate” button to your left. It’ll take you to Paypal, and you can send us any amount you want, even if it’s a dollar.
If you’ve enjoyed EN.net’s interviews with Alexander Skarsgard, Kristin Bauer van Straten, and Charlaine Harris, and/or if you enjoy our discussions about True Blood, the SVM books, and The Vampire Diaries, please consider helping us.
Charlaine Harris has updated her official site with our long-awaited preview chapter of book 12, Deadlocked.
Slight spoilers follow!
I’m extremely encouraged by the fact that Eric and Sookie are still together as this book opens. In fact, Sookie says, “I love Eric and I should only bunk down with him.” I was half-expecting this book to start off with Eric and Sooks kind of separated. Best of all is this message that Pam delivers to Sookie through Eric’s day man, Mustapha: “Tell Sookie that this is the hard time that will show what she is made of.”
Hear, hear! I think Charlaine is setting things in motion to do exactly what I hope and predict in this old post: Sookie will have to fight for Eric. I can’t wait!
Hi, everyone! Hope the holiday season is treating you well and isn’t too hectic so far. Things have been fairly quiet in Eric land, apart from the release of the book 12 cover art and a short plot blurb (see this great post at Sookieverse Blog for more on that).
Dead Air is on hiatus with The Vampire Diaries until the new year, and then later this spring we’ll return to our home sweet home, Area 5, with a group read of book 5, discussion of book 12, and – of course – season 5 of True Blood.
Here’s hoping that 2012 brings us lots of good things in the Eric department.
We’re joining our friends at True Blood Fan Source and other great fansites to celebrate Kristin’s birthday by sponsoring a charity fundraiser and giveaway to benefit one of her favorite causes, the Amanda Foundation. There are some great prizes to win, including autographs from Kristin, so be sure to visit and donate! The fundraiser runs from today until Kristin’s birthday, November 26.

…if you’re rich, of course. Which I’m not. *sigh*
Anyway, click here to bid on (or stare at and drool over and covet) this cardboard cut-out of Eric that was used at Comic-Con last year. It’s signed by 60 – count ‘em, 60! – cast and crew members. The auction is to benefit the Choroideremia Research Foundation, which is close to the hearts of Deborah Ann Woll and her boyfriend, EJ Scott, who has the disease.
I absolutely love this illustration of Eric and Sookie as Jack and Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas!Tags: Fan Art
