Charlaine Harris Cancels Australian Book Tour

There’s sad news to report—author Charlaine Harris has canceled her Australian book tour after the death of her mother. There were rumors of this last week on Twitter, but now Harris herself has confirmed it on her Facebook page. She writes, “I lost my mother on Sept. 20. The world is a darker and grimmer place. She was the best mother anyone could ever have.”

Harris had planned to tour Australia and New Zealand this fall, but that has understandably been canceled. The events calendar on lists the tour as “postponed,” so perhaps it will be rescheduled. I’d keep checking her website for further updates.

Everyone here at Daemon’s Books loves Charlaine Harris, and we are saddened to hear of her loss. Let’s all send her some good thoughts and a big virtual hug!
