    That's really cool. I even dig that die-cut cover. You don't see those too much anymore!

    Word on the street is that GWENDY'S BUTTON BOX is headed back to a second printing before publication, just FYI.

    Publishers Weekly review for GWENDY has arrived and it's a good one:

    "This absorbing novella by horror giants King (End of Watch) and Chizmar (A Long December) revisits one of King's most popular locales. It's 1974 when 12-year-old Gwendy Peterson is offered a magic box by a man named Richard Farris, whom she meets at the top of one of the cliffside Suicide Stairs in Castle Rock, Maine. Farris wears a "small neat black hat" and seems to know just who Gwendy is and what she wants. Eight buttons grace the mahogany box he offers to Gwendy, and a lever dispenses silver dollars and intricate chocolates that Farris claims will help Gwendy lose weight and escape being called 'Goodyear' by her classmates. Lose weight she does, but that's not all. Wonderful things keep happening in Gwendy's life, and she's happier than she's ever been. But when she decides to press one of the buttons, the consequences are horrendous. The novella follows Gwendy through high school and beyond, capturing the golden-hued joy of childhood and the wonder of friendship and first love, all under the shadow of temptation. This bite-size gem of a story packs quite a punch, and the only complaint readers will likely have is that it isn't longer."

    Saw a huge poster for this at Books-A-Million in Knoxville. I found that a little distressing, lowest print runs and all that.

    I'm not sure what you mean by lowest print runs.

    Well I may be going overboard a bit with this one. I have now ordered the Trade, Signed Limited, Audio CD and the Nocturnal Reader's box version of this one.

    There is also several flavors on the Lonely Road side. I know because I have been drawing non-stop for the past week and will continue for another two, at least.

    I am only aware of the Limited and Lettered from them and I am happy to say I only ordered the Limited. I believe the Lonely Road Lettered is the only version I have passed on yet.

    Really looking forward to seeing your art for this edition Keith!

    Yeah I saw it served up in my Facebook feed. Then I realized what you had commented about here. Then I watched an unboxing video. What got me scrambling for my exhausted credit card were a few things:
    1. Richard Chizmar worked with these folks and it's Cemetery Dance official
    2. The entire theme of this month is Stephen King
    3. The Overlook pint glass in last month's box--if I get anything like that in this box, I will be over the moon. M-O-O-N, that spells happy!
    4. Just the value of the variant Gwendy cover makes this a no-risk proposition

    The idea of an alternate cover that was approved by both Stephen King and Richard Chizmar intrigued me. I watched several of the unboxing videos and jumped in. I am telling myself that this will be a one month thing. I am telling myself that I am not going to be spending $43 a month going forward. We will see if I listen to myself.
