I hear what you're saying but I have never seen King's writing suffer because of his booming productivity. Patterson? I can't say that about him, plus he ghost writes with everybody and their momma's uncle.
I guess, technically, it's not ghost writing since his name is on the cover but he contributes very little. To his credit, he has helped many struggling writers and made them very wealthy.

While it is an out-of-the-box idea and related to the Red Sox, I know exactly how he feels about doing any publicity appearances this year. Maybe next year he'll be more receptive.
Did that Sleeping Beauties tour become tiresome near the end? Sorry to hear that fans can be such A-holes :eek-new::distrust::down:

The book tours are always tiring and have become more so as time has gone on.

A first edition of course, signed by the author ? (sigh) :) - I'm so jealous :laugh:

Hey - you put up with all of our BS - ya gotta get some perks!
:okay:
No signed first edition of Carrie as that was long before my time working here.

Oh - okay - sorry - forgot you're not a crazy fan who likes to collect books (like so many here do) - I think after a while it almost seems like an obsession.

I was looking at my collection just recently and realized it's just one more thing to dust (sigh) :biggrin2:
