Blood and Smoke audiobook excerpt read by Stephen King

Simon and Schuster Blood and Smoke audiobook "Eeeeeeee, I teach you!"  Listen to Stephen King read an excerpt from the audiobook that will release October 5, 2010.

Stephen King talks to USA Today

The comic American Vampire comes out in hardcover today.  The entire volume includes all five of Stephen King's contirbutions.  Honestly, I'm missing the wordslinger King but Scott Snyder's American Vampire is a comic I won't abandon anytime soon.   This comic is a thrilling ride with art that is exceptional.  Including Stephen King was a wise decision indeed for Vertigo.  Hardcore vampire and King fans love this series.

King spoke with USA Today about his thoughts on romantic vampires and a possible new original endeavor in comics Afterlife.  [ "A traditional vampire is always a taker, and that's the story of American expansion and laissez-faire and the rise of industrialism," says King, adding that Skinner's violent streak is his most essentially American trait. "The idea that he wants to come back and get his vengeance and he wants to get it as fast as he can and as harshly as he can, that's a very American desperado thing."]  For Full Article click here.

King's Commercial for American Express 1986

King says, “Do you know me? It’s frightening how many novels of suspense I’ve written, but still when I’m not recognized it just kills me. So instead of saying I wrote Carrie, I carry the American Express Card. Without it, it makes life a little scary.” (another announcer) Then King says “American Express (whispers) don’t leave home without it.”  

The quality is okay but wanted it on my site. Stephen King Rocks!!

Question Of The Day #54 : If you had a chance to look at the photos from Stephen's Empire, what were your favorites?

Favorites Group 1 Photo Submissions Click Here:  #60 "For your little monsters!",  #110 "Suffer The Little Children",  # 212 "Free tank of gas and a Possession with Every Car."

#60    This one just made me laugh.  If you are a parent "monster" is putting it mildly.
#110  This one was soooo sad, and at the same time really funny.
#212  I thought that this person put a lot of thought into this submission.

There were others in this group that I liked, but these were my favorites.  Later today I may post my secondary favorites to see if any of these are picked for the final 12.

Favorites Group 2 Photo Submissions Click Here:  #591 Pho King Way, #610  "I said 'Sai King' not 'Sign King' you idiot!",  #569 "I'm sick of these pyrokinetic students! If we have to rebuild this place one more time....."

#591   I blogged about this one before ROTF LMAO with this one.
#610   This one struck me as being cleaver and funny.
#569   This person looked at the photo and did such a great job of describing the goings on in the photo.  LOL    

Favorites Group 3 Photo Submissions Click Here:    #1098 "King's Haunted House of Whores (Horrors)" #1100 "I've got an itchy feeling that's something's missing," said Edgar Freemantle."  #1392 "King makes it all connect."

#1098  Whores (horrors),  now that's funny :D!
#1100  The caption matched the photo so well, loved it!
#1392  The tie in to The Dark Tower and how King manages to connect most of his books to DT.

   Please go to, check out the semi-finalists and see what you think, come back and write about it.

Submissions, Submissions, and more Submissions

Stephen's Empire
Tomorrow is the last day to get your photo submissions in.  It looks as though there may be 800-1000 submissions to be judged in the last round depending on how many get posted tomorrow.  There will only be 50 unless they change their minds about how the contest is going to work.  The total number in the semi-finals is supposed to be 150.  The last round is going to be a tough round to judge.  (Better them than me.)  I have loved going through all of the submissions they are all so good.  We should know the final 50 on or about September 20.  The final 12 will be announced sometime at the end of the month with the books being distributed on or about November 9, 2010.  Good luck if you entered.

Update:  1056 was the total amount for the final group of submissions that will be judged.  I did notice that some of the submissions didn't have photos which will disqualify them, dang, and some of the captions were really good.
