King’s Been Working On A Novel Since Last April

In the NPR interview King says he’s been working on a novel since April last year and because of the Corona Virus he felt he had to change some things...

I set the book I'm working on in the year 2020 because I thought, "OK, when I publish it, if it's in 2021, it will be like in the past, safely in the past." And then this thing came along, and I immediately looked back through the copy that I'd written and I saw that one of the things that was going on was that two of my characters had gone on a cruise. ... And I thought, "Well, no, I don't think anybody's going on cruise ships this year." And so I looked at everything and I immediately set the book in 2019, where people could congregate and be together and the story would work because of that.

There is no more information about the novel yet but I’m already looking forward to it.
