Will Patton has been cast as the narrator for the MR. MERCEDES audiobook. Will narrated the audiobook edition of DOCTOR SLEEP to great acclaim: he’s nominated for an Audie Award for Best Male Solo Narration and the DOCTOR SLEEP audiobook was chosen as the 2013 Audiobook of the Year by Audible.
Will is an award-winning audiobook narrator and his numerous film credits include Meeks Cutoff, Brooklyn's Finest, A Mighty Heart, Remember the Titans, The Punisher, The Mothman Prophesies, and Armageddon. He starred as Captain Weaver on the TNT series Falling Skies and won Obie Awards in the theater for his performances in Fool for Love and What Did He See.
Stephen's visit in Germany and France last November was not only for his fans a very special event, but also for him. To thank all his German and French fans for their warm welcome he came up with a great idea: He wrote a story, "Bad Little Kid", which will be available in e-book format from 14th of March just in German (Böser kleiner Junge) and French (Sale Gosse).
We now have permission to officially announce the release of the novel, Revival, which will be published by Scribner and Hodder & Stoughton on November 11, 2014.
In a small New England town, over half a century ago, a shadow falls over a small boy playing with his toy soldiers. Jamie Morton looks up to see a striking man, the new minister. Charles Jacobs, along with his beautiful wife, will transform the local church. The men and boys are all a bit in love with Mrs. Jacobs; the women and girls feel the same about Reverend Jacobs—including Jamie’s mother and beloved sister, Claire. With Jamie, the Reverend shares a deeper bond based on a secret obsession. When tragedy strikes the Jacobs family, this charismatic preacher curses God, mocks all religious belief, and is banished from the shocked town.
Jamie has demons of his own. Wed to his guitar from the age of 13, he plays in bands across the country, living the nomadic lifestyle of bar-band rock and roll while fleeing from his family’s horrific loss. In his mid-thirties—addicted to heroin, stranded, desperate—Jamie meets Charles Jacobs again, with profound consequences for both men. Their bond becomes a pact beyond even the Devil’s devising, and Jamie discovers that revival has many meanings.
Those of you who follow Twitter will know that recently I managed to put my foot in my mouth and halfway down my throat. A good many people came away from my tweet about the Woody Allen controversy with the idea that I had called Dylan Farrow or Mia Farrow (or both) a bitch. That wasn’t my intention, but the conclusion on the part of some readers is understandable. I used the wrong word to describe not Ms. Farrow—either Ms. Farrow—but a sad and painful mess. Some people seem to believe that writers never use the wrong word, but any editor can tell you that’s not true.
Those of you who have read my work—Carrie, Dolores Claiborne, Rose Madder, and Lisey’s Story, to name four—will know that I have plenty of respect for women, and care about the problems and life-situations they face. My single-mom mother faced plenty, believe me. And I have no sympathy whatever for those who abuse children. I wrote about such abuse—and its ultimate cost to the victim—in Gerald’s Game.
The maximum number of letters in a Tweet is 140. I think the following would fit: I apologize for screwing up.
Just know my heart is where it’s always been: in the right place.
