Here is an interview I did with Federico Bebber who did the cover art for Sleeping Beauties.

The actual illustration is a modified version of something I created almost four years ago. I was contacted by who created the composition. As a long time King fan, I was totally flattered and excited. A dream come true!

Today Stephen King turns 70

Posted: September 21, 2017, 12:00:00

Dear Stephen,

I have been reading your books for the last 34 years. During those years you’ve been constantly present in my life. Some periods very present, others less, but always present. During these 34 years I’ve gone to school, gotten married, changed jobs and raised a family and time has sometimes been limited but I’ve always made time when there’s a new story.

In the beginning, I read the books in Swedish but as the translated books all got read I started reading in English. I didn’t want to wait for them to be translated and I’m 100% certain that I did as good as I did in English class because I was reading your books in English. I’m not sure my teachers would agree but I know this for a fact.

During the years I have read everything I can get my hands on. And the feeling is always the same. A feeling of excitement when I get that new book in my hands and then a feeling of joy and happiness when I open it and read the first page and the second and the third… I feel so blessed to have something that gives me that feeling. Don’t get me wrong there are a lot of things in life that gets me excited and happy and fill me with joy but this is a very special feeling. I can’t explain it but if you have experienced it you know exactly what I’m talking about. And unfortunately, a lot of people never get to feel anything like that. I do and for that I’m extremely grateful.

And for that I want to thank you Stephen! And congratulations! Today is your day!
