Portland Press Herald writes about how King signed more books than planed. I bet everyone there was very happy with this. Thanks King!

SOUTH PORTLAND – Stephen King has wrapped up his six-city book tour by signing hundreds of books in his home state of Maine.

The horror writer made his final appearance at Books-A-Million in South Portland, where hundreds of fans awaited with copies of his latest book, “Revival.”

Hundreds wait in dark for Stephen King book-signing tickets
Four hundred fans had tickets to have their books signed by King on Monday. But the line moved so quickly that he was able to sign books from another 100 or so people.

The 67-year-old King has described the book that was released last week as a “straight-ahead horror novel.” He told his Twitter followers, “If you’re going to buy it, better tone up your nerves.”

The Bazaar of Bad Dreams

Posted: November 7, 2014, 15:27
Here is another new interview with King about Revival. In it he also mentions Finders Keepers and The Bazaar of Bad Dreams; a collection with

King is already looking ahead to next year, with Finders Keepers (the sequel to Mr. Mercedes) out in June.

And in the fall of 2015 there will be a new collection of stories called The Bazaar of Bad Dreams, which'll collect about 20 short tales. It should be a pretty fat book.

King on Today

Word is that King will be a guest on The Today Show on Tuesday, November 11th. This has not been confirmed on the shows site or on King's site yet though.

New King Interview

Posted: November 7, 2014, 10:00
Here is a new interview with King about Revival but he also mentions two other very interesting things. The first one is that he is working on something with his son Owen. No info about what or when we might read it but it will be interesting to see how they collaborate.

I enjoy working with them, though, because we fit together. I've got something going with Owen now, and I've collaborated with Joe on two novellas, Throttle and In the Tall Grass.

The other thing is that he isn’t done with Stu and Frannie from The Stand. There is still a short story about them that needs to be told…

There's one Stand story that still needs to be told, although it's not a long one. I happen to know that when [Stand characters] Stu Redman and Frannie Goldsmith headed back to New England (with their baby), Frannie fell into a dry well. That's all I know. I'd have to write the story to find out what happens.

Check out the entire interview here.

_ has launched a site called Prepare For Revival. This is a social experiment intended to help readers understand just how dark Revival actually is. Here is how they describe the site:

As Revival is perhaps Stephen's darkest novel to date, some Constant Readers may wish to take some time to prepare for the experience of reading the story.

Prepare for Revival is intended for Stephen's fans to explore the dark side of the human condition in anticipation of reading the novel. Prepare for Revival invites you to explore and anonymously share your innermost thoughts on the major themes contained within the story.
Users can safely and securely post their experiences and feelings about Faith, Tragedy, Disillusion, Addiction, Curiosity, Obsession, Death and The Afterlife.

Once users have read the novel, fans can also post their thoughts on Revival, its plot, characters, events and the larger-than-life climax.

Here is a TV Spot for Revival.

Are You Going To The Signings in Nov? Read This!

Posted: September 15, 2014, 09:57
All of you that are planning to go to any of the signings in November; keep your eyes open today as the details will be released. The moderator of King’s board did reveal some general info this weekend though that you might find interesting.

First, not all events are going to be straight book signings but that information will be given on Monday for each venue.

This probably means King will do a reading at one or more stops and if you can, don’t miss this. I have been to two and King is a natural on stage!

Only REVIVAL will be allowed for signing at the events that are book signings, so it would not be possible to get any other book or other memorabilia signed in its place.

This is always the case when King do a signing but at those I have been to there has always been people brining other books. Some have gotten them signed and some hasn’t. Not sure why though.

Additionally, book signings are limited to two hours so events will be ticketed and only those who have a ticket will be able to have their copy of REVIVAL signed.

This means BE ON YOUR TOES! My guess is that we’ll find out today how to get tickets and as you see you are going to need them to get your book signed. I’m not sure how many books King can sign in two hours but my guess would be around 600 (think he did 610 in France in two hours) and I can bet you that there will be more than 600 that wants to attend.

SO, KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN AND IF YOU WANT TO GO! GET A TICKET AS SOON AS THEY ARE RELEASED. Sorry for the caps but this is really important if you want to go.

Book Tour For Revival?

Posted: August 19, 2014, 10:13
Remember that King said there wouldn’t be a book tour during 2014? Well, that seems to have changed and the moderator of King’s site said yesterday that they would be announcing when and where next week.

We're planning to announce cities and dates the week of August 25th but final details won't come until later in September once they're worked out.

So, keep calm and wait for the announcement. And my guess is that it will only be the US this time but we’ll know for sure next week
