A Stephen King Countdown
People, this is happening. I am going to see Stephen King in about two weeks.
Pardon my language, but holy shit.
You're reading this so you know that I am a huge fan. His influence on my writing is sometimes too obvious. He has been part of my life for longer than any of the friends I have now and almost as long as some of my family.
The cool part is that this will be a family outing. My aunt Pam, who has been reading and collecting since forever, is going with me. We're going to sit there and geek out and it will be amazing.
The tour ticket comes with a copy of the third installment of the Bill Hodges trilogy, END OF WATCH. There will be randomly signed copies in the stacks and I hope I get one. I'll let you know.
Sure, I have to drive to Salt Lake City, Utah, to make this happen, but I worked in a family vacation around it. I'm even doing a signing of my own the night before.
In honor of this momentous occasion, I'm going to try to do a Stephen King post as often as possible. Due to travel time ahead of the event, the few days beforehand may be rough, but I will do my best.
