I Need Your Help!

Posted: September 21, 2015, 11:17:27

There has been a lot of now followers both on facebook, twitter and here on the Internet recently and I just want to make you aware of a few things that I need your help with. OK, here we go.

Mr Mercedes
Finders Keepers

Link on how to send in photo is on each page. Here are my photos to give you an idea...

I want to post as many photos as I can of you, the King fans, with his books. And a lot of you have sent in photos but I bet there are more of you out there that have the books and want to be part of this. So, check these pages out and then send in your photo with any of these three books (the photo should be a photo of you and the book, not just the book). Any edition and language goes.

I’m trying to decide what book the fans like the best and for that I need you to vote. Head over here and cast your vote for the best book!

OK that’s it. I hope you’ll all help me out with this! Thanks!

The Mist As a TV Series

Posted: September 16, 2015, 23:06:56
Section: TV » The Mist

Seems like The Mist is being developed as a TV series by Dimension Television...again.

The Weinstein Company’s Dimension Television is developing a TV series based on The Mist, first a Stephen King novella and then a 2007 MGM film directed by Frank Darabont. The project, which Dimension says is moving forward with King’s blessing, is from writer Christian Torpe, who created the Danish series Rita which is now finishing its fourth season.

The series will tell an original story about a seemingly innocuous mist that seeps into a small town but contains limitless havoc. From psychological terrors to otherworldly creatures, the mist causes the town residents’ darkest demons to appear forcing them to battle the supernatural event and, more importantly, each other.

“The terror and drama in Stephen King’s novella are so vast that we felt serialized television is the best place to explore them in greater depth,” said Bob Weinstein, co-chairman The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films. “With this show, Christian has created a fascinating band of characters and a story with infinite scares.”

Dimension TV’s Megan Spanjian, Matthew Signer and Keith Levine will oversee the project.

King & Grisham To Appear At Book-Ends

Posted: September 16, 2015, 15:07:22

2016 will get off to a great start for fans of best-selling authors John Grisham and Stephen King. The two authors will participate in the Manatee Library Foundation’s fundraiser in January at State College of Florida’s Neal Performing Arts Center.

Legal thriller novelist John Grisham will headline the event. Stephen King will interview Grisham on stage.

The event, “Book-Ends: An Evening with Two Literary Giants” will be held Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2016. Organizers are hoping to sell out the 832-seat venue and to raise $175,000 for the Library System.

“This is a huge literary event and we continue to be awestruck it’s happening here,” said Manatee County Library Services Manager Ava Ehde. “We are grateful to these impressive and prolific authors as well as Rep. Boyd, the growing list of sponsors and the Library Foundation for their support of our Manatee Libraries.”

If tickets are still available on Oct. 15, the public may purchase tickets for $150 apiece.

The Foundation will also give away a ticket to the King event to the winner of a Flash Fiction contest challenging amateur writers to submit a 250-word piece of fiction or poetry inspired by a photo posted on the new site. One winner will be announced in January. (If a minor wins the contest, he or she will be awarded two tickets for guardian accompaniment.)
