I have a photo of the cast from Haven (Emily Rose, Lucas Bryant, Adam Copeland and Eric Balfour) that they all have signed and now Iím going to give it away to one of you. The only thing you need to do is enter this contest.

Usually there are a lot of rules with a contest but not this time. This time I want to give you the freedom to do what you wantÖalmost. The only thing Iím going to give you is a one sentence instruction and then itís up to you to run with it. And as long as you follow it you canít go wrong.

I will then judge the entries and select a winner and I will tell you this. I will be picking the winner out of what I like, what I think is creative and what I think is fun. I want to be able to see that you have put some thought into it. OK, are you ready? Here it comes:

"Illustrate a trouble"

If you donít know what this means you have probably not seen Haven but if you have you should know what I mean. Now itís up to you. Run wild and send in your entry no later than December 20.

Send your entry to me by email info[a] and if you for any reason canít send it by email. Please email me and weíll work it out. OK, Good Luck!

Finders Keepers...

Section: Book » Finders Keepers (The Bill Hodges Trilogy #2)

Looks like Finders Keepers might have an interesting ending... Here are two comments about it from the moderator on King's board given as an answer to the question if the book is very much like Misery (since that book was mentioned in the description).

No. I can't say too much without giving away more of the plot but you won't feel like it's a rehash of Misery.

What I will say is that I do want to reread this one as there have been edits since the first draft. I still get goosebumps every time I think about the ending so am glad that part hasn't been changed from what Steve told me when I asked.

Kevin Smith has done an interview with Josh Boone in which he talks about movie version of The Stand (if you donít want to listen to all of it you can jump in at the 1.20 mark). In the interview Josh says that he will do no less than 4 movies based on the book.

He also talks about the 3 hour version he wrote the script for first and how he dropped that without any hesitation when Warner offered him to do 4 movies instead of one. He also say that they hope start shooting next year, maybe in the spring.

Listen to the interview here.
