Well, folks, cometh the hour, cometh the book.

I’ll be quivering over here in the corner, eating chocolate pudding continuously, until further notice.

Addendum: Also a nice piece here by the lovely Rachel Kramer Bussel.

    I expect my copy of Swish to arrive by the end of the week, and look forward to it tremendously!

    I hope you enjoy your chocolate pudding; it’s probalby among my favorite comfort foods. It’s very important to choose a good comfort food when quivering in a corner, and I believe you’ve done well, no matter how unjustified your quivering may be.

    Just ordered a copy off Amazon UK, along with a copy of Gay Haiku, (may as well make the most of the P&P charges, no?)
    I probably want to get ‘The Divine Comedy’ finished before they both turn up though or I may never finish it… The intrigue of gay literature may draw me in more than the joys of Heaven and Hell.

    Holy H-E-double hockey-sticks! I’m expected to take delivery of Swish and the best-selling Spanish cook book for the last 30 years as of next monday… I want them now!!! Seriously, though, I’m very much looking forward to reading your book, and the pudding-gorging is a lovely idea, if the pre-release events have been that horribly scarring. Enjoy your jiggly food, your new dog, and success!!!

    See you tonight. Bring some pudding for the rest of us.

    Congrats on the book release. Can’t wait to read it! I hope your reading went well!

    I was very pleasantly surprised this evening when the ball and chain finally got around to mentioning that I’d gotten a package from Amazon today. He was between me and the table where the mail was, but I’m sure he’ll recover. In time.

    I would like to say something nice about the prose, but I had some trouble getting past the photo on the jacket cover. When my partner looked up from the floor to ask what was wrong, I said, “Damn. Faustus looks good!”

    Congrats. I’m glad I made it to your reading tonight. I am so happy to be a part and witness to your success. Here’s to more.

    Lovely interview, sir–but why is this Radar article surrounded by photo ads for Gay Chubby Dating (accessible via, the ads helpfully note)? Is this a plot to make your portrait appear [even] leaner? Does Google AdSense somehow recognize a target audience based on the mentions of quivering, pudding and Cold Stone Creamery? What is behind these machinations?

    Oh, and nice pecs. 🙂

    When I went to Amazon Uk to order my copy they said the only had 5 left – so maybe that book tour to the UK may come to pas after all

  10. William says:

    Damn, I was all set to be at the bookstore at midnight just like a Harry Potter release, but I got the dates mixed up. Well, time to hit Amazon, I guess. Congrats!!

    also, eating so much pudding will make u tubby and look fat in ur next book picture. wouldnt you rather have us love you than eat that pudding, faustus? just letting you know cos you know we love you.

    three things:

    1. i’m guessing all the shaking and quivering is nothing more than some clever new calorie-burning technique you’ve devised, the secret of which will be revealed in book three.

    2. i could’ve used you today when the question came up at work as to which was correct: “none of a, b or c,” or “none of a, b and c” (i went with “and”–and please tell me i made the correct choice because we could lose the brazilian deal otherwise).

    3. i will be at “a different light” in west hollywood at 7:30 this coming monday evening if i can possibly manage it; whether i’ll reveal myself when you sign my book is still an open question.
