Question of the day #64: What are you reading?

Black House  and The Regulators

Black House is fast-paced and a thrilling read so far on my Nook.  I'm about halfway through the book.  The Regulators is in paperback (for those places I read that I could drop it in water). I started this book years ago but didn't finish it.  Having just read Desperation this was an obvious choice for my next book.

Webcast Event!
Lauren Grodstein & Stephen King; Algonquin Book Club Event, 3/3

Stephen King interviews Lauren Grodstein about her new book A Friend Of The Family.

This book has been touted as the best book of the year.

***Algonquin is giving away 10 copies of this book on their facebook page. This was copied from their page.

We have 10 copies of A Friend of the Family up for grabs to those who want to participate in the live webcast. Just leave a comment here or on our Facebook page to enter. Good luck!***

$10,000 was riding on this question today

Who Wants To Be a Millionaire had this question during the show. 

With members like Stephen King and Amy Tan, what rock band of famous authors often performs at charity events?

A:  Galley Proof Band                                B:  Traveling Quillburys
C:  The Stringers                                       D:  Rock Bottom Remainders

Get this, the lady's name was Sharon King and "claimed" to be a Stephen King fan.  She jumped the question which was worth $10,000.00.  Now, had I been on this show, with my somewhat extensive knowledge of Stephen King I would have won some serious moola with this question.

This is on my wish list this year!

This is one of  the Road Rage covers with King and Hill.  I have got to get my hands on this one!!!!   

In 2012, King gives us more than last year!

With so many projects coming for King this year, 2012 could be exciting.   The Wind Through The Keyhole is the much anticipated Dark Tower novel revisiting our old pals Roland, Jake, Susannah, and Oy.  The art of Jae Lee will grace the pages of this new book.   

Cover art  of The Wind Through The Keyhole from  Release Date:  4/24/2012 Donald M. Grant publishers has released an excerpt here.  Another project that is due out early in the year are the comics which include King, Hill. and Matheson by the name of Road RageRoad Rage: Throttle and Road Rage: Duel.  Nelson Daniel the artist was the winner of a 2011 Eisner award  for The Cape. There will be 3 issues in all beginning in February 2012.

The Ghost Brothers of Darkland County will premiere in April 4 2012 thru May 13, 2012 @ The Alliance Theatre in Atlanta.  This "field trip" was a consideration for my family but couldn't commit to a date for the show.  So, needless to say, I'm hoping this musical goes nationwide, God willing.  My wish was to go opening weekend with the hopes to see King in the audience.  To those of you who are fortunate enough to see this musical opening weekend, applause.  If you have any experiences during this show come by and share them.  I'd love to hear your story. :D The release of the book and musical score will hopefully come out sometime this year. (fingers crossed) For more information on this show visit King's website for information  

Dr. Sleep is expected to release September 26, 2011 sandwiched right between my husband and mother's birthdays.  So what has that Danny Torrance been doing for the last 35 years?  I have a strong feeling this will be fansupernaturaltastic!
