King: Black in Black

Stephen King reports on his Web site [IA] that after a week of live downloads, his readers are on par to meet his new publishing model challenge. Of 152,132 downloads, 116,200, or 76.38 per cent of King’s readers have sent in their dollar to keep King working on, and uploading, The Plant. King reports that he is thus very close to covering the $124,150 he spent for print ads in Publisher’s Weekly and USA Today to publicize the project.
