Dear Stephen King, I’m Coming to Maine! Care for a cup of Java? My Treat!

“Here’s Johnnny”, from The Shining – all time favorite!

(Shh! I know it’s a long shot, I’ve got less than a zero chance of getting this wish fulfilled, yet I must, at least, ask. Quiet now…)

Hello, Mr. Stephen King? I am a big fan of your writing.  I would love to buy you a cup of coffee, because, well, I’ll be in your neck of the woods next week!  I’m coming to Maine, for the first time, ever!

I am SO looking forward to seeing the sights, eating lobster, and maybe ??? meeting that talented author, you, Stephen King?!

I’ve seen a picture of the gothic fence around your home, and jeezum crow! It’s awesome sauce! (aren’t those required expressions while in Maine?)

I am a HUGE fan of your work.  I use written and film versions of your prose in the English Language Arts classes I teach.  My most favoritist of all classes is, Film Classics.  The kick-off film for the fall Film class is always Stand By Me, based on your short story, The Body.  Everyone loves that film.

My personal favorite novel is The Shining.  I remember reading that tome while driving to Florida, from the upper peninsula of MI, for college spring break.  It was riveting.

So, Mr. King, can I buy you a cup of coffee?  How about a go-cup? Well, how about a handshake?  And would you mind having your picture taken with me?  I promise it would end up in a sumptuous frame in my classroom.

It would also be a lovely birthday gift because both my husband and I will be celebrating our big days while in Maine!  (He’s hitting the speed limit – shhh – don’t say that I told).  You would also help me cross off “meet Stephen King” from my bucket list.

Think about all the good you could do for my drab, little life.

We leave tomorrow (8/17) and will be in Maine all next week.  And in all sincerity, it would be a pleasure to meet you.  Long shot, yes.  A dream? Absolutely!  I’m daring to dream big!

Rest assured, even though I’m a big fan, I am NOT Kathy Bates in Misery.  Promise!

Respectfully submitted,

Tar-Buns, a newbie blogger and fan of yours

  1. May all your “wicked good” wishes come true Tar-Buns!!

  2. He’d be a fool to turn down an offer like that. Fingers crossed!

    Hope that works, but maybe sending him this letter with a little blood on it might pique his interest more. Just sayin…
    “Christine” was the scariest freakin book I ever read! And the movie was just stupid, what a disappointment.
    Have you seen “Haven” on SyFy channel? It’s a series based on his book of the same name. I haven’t read the book, but the show is great. You’ll have to check it out.

  4. My brother was just talking to the owner of the little store here in town where King’s latest book is based. The guy told him ‘Steve’ often comes by still to visit. So maybe if you started calling him Steve that would help? And, of course, throw Jeezum Crow around a lot. Good luck!!!

    You might have more luck if you tell him you’re a stalker. I think he goes for that type.

  6. I agree with Al. Put on your best sinister look and got for it!

  7. Jeff says:

    Haha! I hope your wish comes true! That would be very cool.

  8. Thanks for all your cheery comments. We finally made it and are ready for a cocktail on the deck, over looking the harbor. Haven’t heard from Mr. King himself, not that I really thought I would.
    Found lobsters for sale close to where we are staying and stopped at the grocerykl before coming here. We are set! Cheers to you all! I’ll enjoy our lobsters in your honor.

  9. Yes! The Shining was probably the scariest novel and the scariest movie I have EVER read/seen. How he managed to pull that off escapes me (usually movies aren’t nearly as crazy/scary/fun/whatever as the book). But The Shining Freaked Me Out.
