Stephen King Picks The Next 50 Semi-Finalists

Stephen's Empire

The next 50 posts were picked but they weren't shown in Flash like last time.  Earlier it had been posted that the entries would run from numbers 401-800 but the cut-off looks like it was well past 800.  The final entry was number 885.  So, I am unsure where the actual cut-off was...maybe 900? You will need to go through all the posts and find out what post numbers belonged to yours or just to see who the Semi-Finalists were.  (I have 4 entries now in total!!!!)  The Road King sign is not one of my entries but found it to use as a visual next to this post on lol see post # 52 for 1-50

Confirmed post numbers 401-900 were judged in this round.

For the 1 Year Anniversary my 13 year old son is posing this Question of the Day #53: What do you think Stephen King should write a book about?

My son said, "That tunnel."  This is called the Fort McHenry Tunnel going into Baltimore, Stephen King rode through this to get to the Baltimore book signing.  Hope he writes this one, scary-looking huh?  If you missed this video listen when SK talks about this tunnel in one of my other blog posts.  I agree with my son's choice, that tunnel. 

Happy 1 Year Anniversary All Things Stephen King!!

Here's An Article I Wanted To Pass On....

After reading this story I knew I had to pass it along.  Even though Gospel and Blues aren't my favorite types of music, I felt that because someone was taking King's words and putting them to music I had to blog about it.  If you remember in Bag Of Bones, the singer Sarah was singing a song throughout the story.  Nicole Christian, a Toronto Blues singer and huge King fan, took what King began and wrote a song based on the lyrics he provided in the book.  She named the song Barn Dance which can be heard at the end of the article (link provided below).  I loved hearing his words set to music.  Her story came full circle, except I have to wonder if King will influence her life or work any more than he already has?  What did you think about this story?  Please let me know what you thought of it.

Full Dark, No Stars Gets 4 out of 5 Roses From One Reviewer

Looks as though Rosebud Book Reviews gives Full Dark, No Stars  a thumbs up.  Sounds to me like you will be on the edge of your seat with the victim/perpetrator scenes which were also presented in The Gingerbread Girl which I liked very much.  I found myself actually holding my breath at times.  It will be interesting to see how the stories in Full Dark, No Stars compare to The Gingerbread GirlClick here for full review.
