In February 2014 Rory from Fourth Street Review and I came up with the idea of a month-long Stephen King event. While she is a King expert, I’m a King newbie (but a little less newbie than I was during last year’s event!). So we both have a different perspective on this awesome writer and his work.
This year we decided to host the event again as reading King for a whole month is just awesome.
We all know Stephen King: it doesn’t matter if you’ve read anything by him or not. He’s most famous for his horror novels, but with this event we want to show you he has so many sides to him (or at least his work has).
We’re inviting you to read and watch anything King-related in the next month. This can be any of his novels or movies that are based on his novels, but also non-fiction work written about King, interviews, anything. You can check out Rory’s blog for Stephen King reviews or explore the King’s books and movies yourself: anything is possible. Just do what you feel comfortable with and let us know how you’re experiencing your King month.
How To Participate
All you have to do to participate in this event is to post about at least one thing King-related. You are free to read as many King books or watch as many King movies as you want, but you can also stick with just one book (some of the books are real chunksters). You can let us know you’re going to participate by signing up with the Mister Linky below, but you can also join in the fun halfway through the month. Every FRIDAY during the event there will be a link-up on both our blogs where you can share your reviews, info posts and any other King-related posts.
You can already put up a post on your blog announcing that you’re going to participate and reflecting on which books you’d like to read. If you do so, please use the event button in the post or in your sidebar and link back to Rory’s blog and mine. You can also let us know you’ve put up a post by leaving a comment. Want to join in the fun on Twitter? Just add the hashtag #kingsmarch to your tweet, so we can interact.
To make this event even more fun, everyone who’s participating in this event will get an entry for winning a book by Stephen King. If you write one post during the event, you get one entry; if you write five, you get five entries. Just make sure you link up this post in one of the weekly link-ups. I’ll host a giveaway on my blog and Rory will do the same for hers. We’ll both be using the same linkups, so you don’t have to enter at both our blogs. More details will be announced at the beginning of the event.
I hope you’ll all join in the fun and spread the word about Stephen King and this event!
