Query.



Publisher is looking at a reading in Philly, DC or Baltimore. Are you in the area? Would you actually come to a reading/book signing of mine (Yeah, still sounds weird)? Could you convince a friend to come?

Better yet, what city should I be visiting? Keep in mind, it's 2009 and if I don't get where I should be, it's not personal.

I'm in Philadelphia, and you could probably get a good group together. Even in the suburbs, people come out for readings all the time.

If you ever make it out to Phoenix, make book on me being there with the spouse. And if you go to LA, I can guarantee my friend Doug and about eighty-nine of his friends would be there. Did you know that you are something of a gay icon? It's true!

I could do DC or Baltimore but not until October!! Would you consider Flagstaff AZ? It's touristy and pretty hopping in the summer.

A second for Dallas!!! Have your folks check out Legacy Books in Plano - a 6 months old, 3 story bookstore that has lots of events. I just saw another blogger/ author there and it was packed out.

Come anywhere in SE Florida and I'm there, guaranteed--with friends.

Have publisher look at Books and Books in Miami. They do a lot of signings.

I'm not really near Philly or the DC area, but if you visited northern NJ (Parsippany has a LOVELY Barnes & Noble), I would definitely come!

(And, considering how very, very seldom I go out at night, that's saying a lot.)

In Nashville or Chicago (or area) I could guarantee an audience.

Chicago!

Come to the Book Cellar on Lincoln Ave: www.bookcellarinc.com. They're independently owned, and staffed by delightful people. And no, I don't work there. I just stimulate the economy there... a lot.

One more reason to come to Chicago: Harry Potter exhibit at the Museum of Science & Industry. Bring daughter and consort! Fun for the whole family!

On your way to Manila, stopover in Auckland, New Zealand.
You don't ask you don't get, right?

I'd go to your book signing in the San Francisco Bay Area, but if you can't make it, I still plan to buy your book!

Chicago or St. Louis. I am 20 minutes from St. Louis, and nobody ever comes here anymore! You could be instrumental in reviving the wonderful tradition of great authors stopping here. It all stopped when a wonderful independent bookstore closed several years ago.

I live in Dallas and would like it if you came here, but if I had written a book and was going to promote it, I would be going to NYC! Then I would go to DC and Baltimore, since you would be in the area.

ps. Flagstaff is 2 hours from Phoenix so if you went to Phx, I'd be there! I saw another AZ vote here too. I'm buying your book anyway though so if plans for this materialize later, that's ok. I'll be there when you are!

Well, I have read already that LA is the winner because it is local to you. I will just say East Coast from DC to NY and I will be there. Meanwhile I'm off to order my copy. Good Luck and thanks

BOSTON. Ask Jen Lancaster about the crowd she gets in Boston and how faithful Boston book fans are. We even go to see authors at the SAME time as a game at Fenway, which adds an hour to what should be a, ahem, 15 minute commute. Just ask her! :-)

I'll be in the DC area at the very end of July, beginning of August. Maybe you could read then.

But come to Boston, please. PLEASE? Pretty please with cherries on top?

Hi Quinn. I'm in the Philadelphia area (and gay)... I tell all my friends about the QC report. You are a great writer and the gays can spot quality :-) Plus... since I'm in my 40's...and gay... I was obsessed with your perfomance in The Goodbye Girl... and since you hadn't done much since then... I decided to search for you on the internet...and that led me to the QC report. Please come to Philly for a book signing!

Nashville!!! I'm actually in a small city in Western KY, and Nashville is the nearest major city with several large book stores that handle book signings, authors, etc. My city doesn't even have a bookstore, currently...thank goodness for Amazon. Anyway, you have Southern fans, so please come on down!

OK, I'm late to this party but YES! I'd definitely come to see you.

Like I mentioned in another post...the Chester County Book Company (in West Chester,PA) is an exceedingly cool indy bookstore that has many signings.

Lets see...I met Anne Rice there, and the guys from Deadliest Catch.

Who would be cooler to add to that list than YOU?!!!

Yes - would definitely come to an event in Philly, and I might be able to get a group together, too. (At least, I would certainly try.) And I agree with Lauren's post above that Chester County Book & Music is a wonderful venue. A great place.

Yes, PLEASE! Come to Philly! I'll buy another book! You could - you could - you could meet my cats! They're GREAT cats! They shed! They drool! They put their paws around your neck for a hug and a kiss!

I'll buy TWO books, and give them as presents!
