Dear Mr. King,
First of all: Happy Birthday! I hope you’ll have a wonderful day and enjoy knowing people all over the globe are celebrating the master of horror’s birthday.
I want to thank you for writing all your amazing books. I was eleven (almost 24 years ago) when I read my first King-book and, believe it or not, it was It. It took me almost 14 days to read it and I couldn’t sleep for weeks after I finished it. It has been my favorite book ever since, because there hasn’t been another book that scared me as much as It did.
Since I read It, I started reading all of your other books as well, and I’m really looking forward to Sleeping Beauties. Your books helped me through some of my darkest times, when fear was the only emotion that I was able to feel because all the other emotions had gone numb. From the bottom of my heart: thank you.
I hope you still have lots of years to come in which you can scare your fans even more.
