Stephen King's newest book is released; he kicks off book tour in New York City

Stephen King's latest novel is out.

"Revival" is being released Tuesday, and King will be in New York City to mark the event.

His six-city book tour travels from New York to Washington, D.C.; Kansas City, Missouri; Wichita, Kansas; and Austin, Texas, before wrapping up on Nov. 17 in South Portland, Maine.

King tweeted that his latest work is a "straight-ahead horror novel" and advised that those who plan to buy it had "better tone up your nerves." The Maine-based writer set up a website on Oct. 28 allowing fans to prepare for his latest novel by exploring "the dark side of the human condition."
