Owen King Sells His Debut Novel to Scribner

Owen King has landed a book deal with Scribner, publishing his debut novel with the same publisher as his father, Stephen King. Reenactment is an “epic, comic novel about a young auteur making his first film.”

Publication is set for spring 2013. McCormick & Williams agent Amy Williams negotiated the deal with senior editor Brant Rumble. Owen published his first collection of short stories, We’re All in This Together, with Bloomsbury in 2005.

Here’s more from the release: “Reenactment is the story of Sam Dolan, an aspiring filmmaker whose fledgling career takes an unexpected nosedive. Set mostly during Dolan’s post-college years, the novel centers on Dolan’s struggle to escape the trappings of professional disaster, difficult family, and questionable relationships.”
