    Has anyone read it? Is there a thread about the book itself?

    Well the cover looks just fabulous http://www.sportressofblogitude.com/...ohnny-Weir.jpg It's being released on 1 -11-11. I've seen that you can pre-order it on Amazon.com I'm not rushing out to get it, but I'm sure I'll read it at some point!

    Boy. If it's true that the FS community frowns about coming outs, that picture says he feels the pressure off now. Weir should have been twenty in the 80s, next to Andy Warhol and Elio Fiorucci.

    Thumbs up Johnny Weir in Toledo

    I've just seen that JW will be at the Barnes & Noble in Toledo on Janary 17 at 12 noon to sign his new book. I thought it might be of interest to his fans in the Toledo/Detroit area.

    He's making a stop in Toledo this month. I just posted about it. I didn't realize this thread existed already. If a mod could merge my thread with this one that would be great.

    When did he have time to write a book? I'm assuming it's ghostwritten?

    Nope. I believe he wrote it all by himself (however I'm sure with a sharp editor's guidance).

    It is normal for one to get a book tour? I guess I'm just surprised his book is generating this much attention.

    Isn't the book tour to generate interest? I imagine with the tour you would sell books to people who otherwise wouldn't bother to pick it up.

    I have seen "book tours" for books that never went anywhere. Some of your top authors never do tours.... just depends.

    I guess really popular authors don't need to tour. People wait for their next book. A first timer or someone like Johnny needs to tour. He's also hitting many of the talk shows to bring attention to his book (and his song). I definitely want to read it. He's always said he will name names in his book and I was all for that. I have a feeling he semi sold me out, though I know at least one person contacted him and asked for a pseudonym. I guess I shall see in a few days. lol

    I wouldn't say it's generating attention until we see how many people show up at the signings - and how many books get sold.

    I also hope that Johnny realizes that publicizing a book through interviews and signings has its moments, but can also be really tedious and unglamorous....
