This site is amazing and very easy to use for pricing. Top right corner has all King's book and values. It goes in detail. All books should have prices on dust jackets first off to be first editions. Except for Storm of Century and Secret Window....they are book clubs regardless. Excluding these 2 books, I feel book clubs have no value. And condition means a lot too. In fine/fine condition if that is what your books are, and true firsts, then roughly 10 a book. Not all, most. Check this site to help you.

Hi Juiccy welcome to the forums. As allasorte pointed out if you go to the 1st edition tab on the upper right of the site you'll get a list of every book along with what identifiers you need to see to make sure ALL of the identifiers listed otherwise it's not a 1st edition. And if it's not a 1st edition it's not going to be worth more than a few dollars.

Additionally most paperback and hardbacks printed after 1990, even if they are first editions will only be worth $5-10 retail, meaning a bookstore would only give you a couple dollars per book. You can check out the selling guide for a more thorough breakdown and a list of options on how/where to sell your books

Write back if you have questions!

From what I can see it does look like a 1st edition. However the condition of the DJ is going to diminish the value quite a bit.

)-: Lol Do you think it will be hard for me to find one? Or if i decide to sell as is how much should I ask? I should have taken some more pics of the book itself. Pages are clean and white.

Most of the value is in the DJ, I think this one is only going to be worth a few dollars. Honestly your best bet for most of these will be to take them to your local used bookstore and have them make you an offer.

Here's the eBay list of firestarter copies you can see what they're going for at various conditions
