Things aren't going well for Zenith House, Publishers.  Their sales are failing and the company is about to go under when they are approached by Carlos Detweiller who has a book called True Tales of Demon Infestations he would like them to publish.   After having his book rejected, Carlos sends them a "gift"--an ivy plant which is taken in and cared for by Riddley Walker (the company's mail clerk who pretends to be less educated than he is).  The company experiences a sudden turnaround of fates but, as always, success doesn't come without a price.

Please! Please finish, I've been wanting to see the end of this story for years... I loved The Green Mile, is this idea so different?

I love this book! I just want to encourage you (not beg- yet) to finish it. Please. You truly are THE KING! Thanks so much.......

Awesome idea. I think a buck a pop is a steal. However, it will kill me to read it and not have an ending in sight. But, that won't stop me from plunging forward and reading it anyway. I am, after all, your constant reader and number one fan....creepy, huh?

Please finish this story. Like "The Gunslinger" I got hooked and have waited patiently. You finally got back to Roland; get back to Carlos, PLEASE

I personally think this is a great idea, although like you, I am also wary of humanity now! I say GO for it, I for one would love to read it. I am a big fan and own every hardcover book I have ever been able to purchase and they have brought me immeasurable comfort and satisfaction. So WHO says honesty is NOT the best policy?
