I have my ticket ready for Booked, an event associated with Canada’s Book Expo. One of the big name guests is Stephen King. He’s the main draw for me, and probably one of my biggest inspirations when it comes to wanting to write. I devoured his novels as a teen, and though I stepped away from his work for a while, I’m busy catching up, especially on the Dark Tower series.
This Friday they’ll honour King in a gala event. Surprisingly it’s his first public appearance in Canada. And it should be interesting to see. I’m certainly looking forward to it.
