Lambda Rising
1625 Connecticut Avenue NW
Washington, DC

Oh... and let me give a shout out to my girls Heidi and Mary Kay at Lambda Rising, who have made this easy on me.

Now that that's out of the way, I need some Washingtonian expertise. Way back when, I had planned to stay with a friend of my boyfriend, but he had to leave town on business. So now I'm looking for a less-expensive hotel ('less expensive' because, much as I love my publishing house, paying the travel expenses of their authors is not one of Those Things They Do.) I've loved staying at Helix and Rouge in the past, but -- given the short notice -- the rack rates seem a bit high to me for a one-night stay. So if anyone has a suggestion, leave it in the comments or e-mail me. Otherwise I'm spending a long, cold night at Union Station, and you will feel bad.

Oh, and one last thing on the subject of gay independent booksellers we heart: The Oscar Wilde Bookshop (15 Christopher Street) now has 8 or 9 signed copies of the book. If you're in New York, go buy one.

YET ANOTHER UPDATE: I am reconsidering taking Amtrak to DC. Seriously.
