San Francisco Book Tour
Ah, San Francisco—a city filled with the crank and grind of constantly traveling cables; the New York of the west coast; a city that has grown up gay and is proud of it, through good times and bad.
My book tour for THE RIDDLE OF THE SANDS began here last night, with my first appearance at Books Inc in Castro (special thanks to Gregory for making me feel very much at home!) However I arrived in San Fran four days ago to get my bearings, enjoy some down time and walk from one end of the city to the other (God, my ass hurts! And no, it's not what you think...it's those hills!)
But the best part of my arrival here was discovering that THE RIDDLE OF THE SANDS had just hit #2 on Amazon's Gay Fiction Top 100! Champagne, anyone??
