Chris Rice is Like a Gay Porn Star


...because he has 2500 fans. From his newly opened up Tumblr site (which he made to post up excerpts of his next novel THE HEAVENS RISE<---I hope it isn't in all caps):
"The promise was this - when I reached 2,500 followers, I would publish an exclusive excerpt from my novel-in-progress, THE HEAVENS RISE.
I’m not sure why I set the bar so low. Maybe I should have said 15,000 followers; that would have put me in league with most of the political pundits who tweet their every opinion on, well, everything. As it is, the 3,000 to 4,000 follower club is populated mostly by gay porn stars, a group some literary critics are eager to lump me in with. But I digress."
He reveals more about his novel, which will have supernatural elements to it:
I’ve never written anything like THE HEAVENS RISE before. Sure, it’s dark and it’s suspenseful and there’s a major gay character and a whole bunch of straight characters and a whole lot of really scary - I hope - stuff happens. But on a variety of levels, this is exactly the type of book I said I’d never write. Not only is it supernatural, it’s also set in New Orleans, a city I swore I’d never return to after giving it such hell in my first novel, A DENSITY OF SOULS. 
The son of Anne Rice (who recently said her next book will be a return to the supernatural) of course will experiment with speculative fiction.

It's only a matter of time now until someone comes up with FuckYeahChristopherRice...It's a much better name than Rice House...honestly.
