According to the old saying, very, very carefully. But first you need a reason, and second you need a topic.
Luckily I have both.
The reason is that I allowed Eric Andrews-Katz to talk me into coming to the Pacific Northwest to do a series of reading events with him. Seattle is the first stop, then Vancouver, and then Spokane. This is my first visit in over twenty years when my big gay saga, Like People in History, was published. The truth is that I didn't need much persuading; I've been so welcomed in the past that I needed very little prodding.
Second is the topic and that of course is the news that the local - and now nationally-recognized - interviewer that Eric Andrews Katz has developed into via the Seattle Gay News, is now an author of three books.

An interview by Eric Andrews-Katz - Seattle Gay News A&E Writer
Felice Picano is one of the legendary movers and shakers of the modern LGBT literary movement. Felice has been writing since the 1970's, while living in New York, and became a founding member (along with Edmund White and Andrew Holleran) of the famous Violet Quill group, as well as a founding member of the Gay Men's Health Crisis. Between 1988 and 1990, AIDS claimed the lives of four of these men. He's published over 40 books, including the great gay epic saga, Like People in History, as well as short stories and plays, and has chronicled his extensive, colorful life in several memoirs. His latest memoir Nights at Rizzoli, recalls the latter half of the 1970's in New York City when Felice worked at the prestigious bookstore while exploring the city's exploding, pre-Stonewall, pre-AIDS, gay lifestyle.
