Figure Skater Johnny Weir Seems to be Shopping Book

weir.pngUsing 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).”
