But you can imagine how I felt when, a few minutes ago, I read on Beattie’s Book Blog that Stephen King’s next novel will be “Under the Dome", in which an invisible force field seals off a Maine town from the world”.
What is to be done? I have 60,733 words in a good draft, and a lot more to be going on with. I think the best thing I can do is finish my book before I get a chance to read his in November.
