Meeting Stephen King, As One Does

Hey there,

On July 16 I fly to New York.

On July 17 I will be speaking at the Hartford Public Library, in conjunction with the Mark Twain House. 7 Pm. Be there, Connecticutians! (sp?)

On July 18 I got invited to stick around at the Mark Twain House for the Stephen King event, including the private reception where I’ll get to meet the man. Any of you who have read my book know about the imaginary contract I made with Mr. King when I was in fourth grade.

I don’t have a bucket list, and if I did, meeting specific people wouldn’t be on it. I want to meet everyone. Still, I think this has the potential to be the greatest thing ever. Private tour of the Mark Twain House and getting to meet one of my heroes?  Can’t wait, and luckily, there are only 23 more days.

I started reading The Book of Woe last night and it’s brilliant. If you’ve got any interest, reservations, or fears about the DSM, read this book.

    Wow, meeting Stephen King in person! I’m sure he’s a very relaxed kind of guy. Don’t forget to get his autograph and make sure he reads your book too. Enjoy the day.

    I am so excited that you get to meet Stephen King (since I’ve read your novel and know the influence that he has had on your life.) I think you should give him a signed copy of your book. 🙂

    I am going to the Stephen King / Mark Twain House event. I don’t have a ticket to the meet and greet though. I will try to make the Hartford Library event, but Wednesdays are tough for me.

    Just wondering what you thought of The Book of Woe. Here is my Goodreads review:

      I need more time to digest it. I thought it was unnerving, prompts a lot of intriguing questions. I found some of the sections about the infighting a little tedious.
