GCR Book News: The Shining / GCR Launchs a New Site!

This Saturday we'd like to share three pieces of news for you....

Stephen King wrote The Shining in 1977 and it was adapted into a film in 1980. If you haven't seen it yet, you must live under a rock and it is time to pop that thing in the DVD player and have the daylights scared out of you! 

Now, more than three decades later, Stephen King has announced that a sequel to The Shining will be released on September 24, 2013; the title will Doctor Sleep, a sequel to The Shining.

If you don't know about the book, it's basically about a writer who moves his wife and psychic son, Danny, to this isolated hotel in the mountains where he eventually goes nuts and tries to kill everyone. 

The sequel to the book will feature Danny, all grown up, still haunted by his father's legacy and the year he spent in that hotel. 

I Am So Ridiculously Excited!!!

  7. Omg!!!!!! Maria!!! I love love love love Scary Movies!!! But here's a confession. I can not really read them in books. I get the bejesus scared outta me if I read it. A good book stays with me for days imagine a scary book written by the King of Horror himself. I won't sleep for weeks.

  8. This is awesome! I am a big fan of Stephen King and always loved his book! Movies are not soo good but as a writer he is amazing!

  9. I love the cartoons! I will have to check out the netgalley fb page!

  10. Haha, this is so cool..though Stephen King scares me.

  11. Wow, I loved The Shining and I am excited that Stephen King is releasing a sequel! I was obsessed with Stephen King from about fourth grade through maybe eighth grade and I read pretty much every King book I could get my hands on.

  12. I can't believe I still haven't read The Shining! It's really awesome that he's releasing a sequel. Congrats on starting your own promotion company!

  13. Awesome! E-cards are my favorites! thanks for the laughs

  14. I am a huge Stephen King fan and I am SO excited for this book to come out! I don't know if I can wait a whole year...

  15. Stephen King is one of my favorite authors. I have read and own almost all of his books and movies. With saying that I guess you already know that I have read and watched The Shining more than once. I love Stephen King's books and movies, all of them. I can't wait to read and watch Doctor Sleep the sequel to The Shining. I like the books better because the movies will usually leave out something. Besides that you know what each character is thinking and feeling in the books. I am a BIG Stephen King fan and have been since I was a teenager.
