    Has there been any word on what King's next book project will be after Beauties?

    King stated on the Sleeping Beauties book tour that the reason he was not providing more detail was because it would feature a character people would be familiar with.

    Didn't he say somewhere that he was writing a book about the introverted girl who works with the detective in the Mr. Mercedes books??? I forget her name now.

    Yes, there is some speculation that this will be a Holly Gibney story. I would enjoy that as I think exploring the depth of Holly would be really be interesting.

    Read a brief description of the story and it is a murder mystery. The names mentioned are Terry Maitland (Baseball Coach) and Ralph Anderson (Detective). I am not familiar with those names so I assume the name we will know was not mentioned. Since when we last saw Holly Gibney she was running Finders Keepers, although with a new partner, I assume this book could feature her. Not a story about her past though.

    I think that would be pretty cool.

    The more I read about this, the more I think it may feature Abra Stone from Doctor Sleep. Not really sure why I lean that way but I do.
