Appearances

Do you want to meet me? Maybe you can! Now that I have a book to promote, I’ll be making some appearances and would love it if people come to them so I don’t end up speaking to empty rooms.

June 9, 2014, 7pm – Los Angeles. Book Soup. I’ll be doing a reading/signing at Book Soup at 8818 Sunset Blvd. I’m not going to lie. It’s kind of been a dream of mine to publish a book and then have a reading/signging at Book Soup. It’s a fantastic store, and I couldn’t be more honored. Come! Details and RSVP (not required) here.

June 16, 2014, 7pm – New York CityBarnes & Noble Upper West Side. This is huge. So huge that this reading/signing will undoubtedly be followed by boisterous revelry and shenanigans late into the night. (Maybe not too late. It’s a school night.) If you are within 8 gajillion miles of Manhattan, you should really come to this. Details on the event and preordering through B&N can be found here.

June 19, 2014, 6:30pm – Larchmont, NY. Anderson’s Book Shop. This will be the closest event I do to home, and it’s at my favorite local bookstore. If you live in the NY burbs or anywhere close to Westchester County, I hope you’ll come to this for some wine, cheese, reading and signing.

July 18, 2014, 7pm – Rochester, NY. Barnes & Noble, Pittsford. Given that a good chunk of the main players in my book are from Rochester, I really wanted to do a reading there. If you come to this event, you’ll probably get to meet Susie, and if you read the book, you WILL want to meet her, because she is amazing.  This is the bookstore Drew and I visit every time we’re in town, so the thought of appearing there is very exciting and nerve-wracking. It’s right before Rochester Pride, too!

I’m hoping to announce more appearances soon. If you have a book club, own a book store, run a podcast, operate a web zine or in any other way want to have me appear somewhere or ask me questions, please Contact Me, because that would be swell.

Writing-related inquiries should go to my agent Laurie Abkemeier at DeFiore & Co. If you’re not sure who to contact, go ahead and try me. Or Laurie. We’re both nice people.

  8. Hello, Jerry. My name is Robert Alvarez, and I had the pleasure of attending your book signing tonight at the Barnes & Noble Booksellers on West 82nd Street and Broadway in Manhattan.

    As I mentioned earlier, I found out about you from a WordPress Email, which featured you, yet another WordPress blogger turned author.

    Thank you for your appearance tonight. And thank you for answering my question, too. Interestingly enough, I AM usually the first one to ask a question, but I always want to break up the monotony by letting someone else ask a question first. Ironically, I do a very bad job of breaking up that monotony.

    Also, although you are very funny, there were many things you said and read that moved me very close to tears, simply because they were quite beautiful.

    It was also so beautiful to see so many people in your life and love and adore you, and that you love and adore, as well, but I did not want to seem like a “starfucker,” especially since I AM sure there were people that wanted to meet them, and did.

    In closing, I want you to know that I always read Forewords, Afterwords, and Acknowledgements. If “Mommy Man: How I Went from Mild-Mannered Geek to Gay Superdad” had an Index, I would probably read that, too.

    May the Divine Great Mystery Lovingly and Lavishly Bless your big and beautiful family, now and always, in all ways.

    • Hi Robert! Thanks so much for coming to the reading. It was great to meet you, and yuo definitely added to the atmosphere which made it a very special night for me. I hope my answer to your question helped. I definitely appreciated the question. I hope you like the book. I’m glad to know you’ll get through the epilogue. :) Best of luck with your own writing, too!

      • Jerry, thank you for replying, and thank you for the compliment, too.

        Yes, the answer to my question was perfect, and exactly what I needed to be Mindful of and to know.

        And I already know I AM going to LOVE your book, not like it. There is a big difference. Also, I look forward to reading it from cover to cover.

        I noticed that your book just sucks me right in. In other words, I become so consumed by what I AM reading, that I may miss a subway or bus stop. But I figured out a remedy. A few stops before where I need to get off, I shall stand, that way I AM ready to get off the vehicle at my stop, without worrying about getting off at the last stop simply because I had to finish a chapter.

        Thank you for your good wishes. May all the Peace, Health and Plenty you have now increase for you and yours one hundred thousand fold right now.
