We are all a part of the Stephen King "Gang" right? That's right! And one of the very special members of this group came by and spent some time at the Overlook this week: Stephen King artist Mark Geyer! Mark as most of you know is the artist for The Green Mile and Rose Madder. His extensive work on The Green Mile, and the Gift Set of the Green Mile is highly regarded by King's readers, but especially by Stephen King himself. It was Stephen King who recommended Mark to become an artist for his titles.
We really enjoyed having Mr. Geyer come by for a visit and he finally got to see the Overlook in all it's glory - well, that and a lot of books :-).
And Mr. Geyer has also remarqued and signed a few more books for us which we are offering here. We only have a few, so please let us know if you would like a copy.
That's it this week. It's Mother's Day this Sunday, and we have a big family event planned. I hope everyone has a wonderful week and remember.. "if Mama ain't happy, NObody's happy" ;-).
