Using his Twitter account for leverage and support, figure skater Johnny Weir and aspiring author tweeted “Book meetings! Get ready and brace yourselves”–causing endless speculation among the literary Twitter-sphere today.
As you can see by this Twitter search, Weir (pictured, via) has quite a few fans in the publishing world. The Daily Beast‘s West Coast editor Kate Aurthur responded: “Please world, make it so! And: Must be tell-all.” Sarah Weinman already picked a title: “The Strong & The Sequined.”
Finally, figure skating fan and Curtis Brown literary agent Ginger Clark attempted to bribe publishers: “If someone would take a photo of Johnny Weir and what he’s wearing to these book meetings, I will pay good money (ie, Italian Chocolate).”
