I get a lot of e-mail so please be patient with me.
BEFORE YOU WRITE ME ABOUT JAKE...
1. I gently ask you to respect that I am no longer "active" in this fanbase. If you are a new fan of Jake's, I encourage you to embrace that and have fun with it, but please understand that I have moved on and no longer "talk about Jake" with other fans.
2. I cannot help you meet Jake. I'm sorry.
3. I cannot give you advice on "where to find Jake" while you're in New York/Los Angeles/etc. The title of this blog and the book it represents are facetious; in reality, you will be hard-pressed to find anyone more conscientious about Jake's privacy than I am. (But if you are absolutely dying, try checking Twitter for sightings of him. That's the best real-time data you're going to get.)
4. It's true that I have a lot of stories about Jake and about being a Jake fan. So many, in fact, that I wrote a book. In that book are things I couldn't possibly fit into an e-mail.
If you are interested in...
a. How I met Jake
b. What my relationship is with the Gyllenhaal family
c. What Jake is "really like"
d. How and why I became a fan
e. What Jake's interest is in this fanbase (or in you, as a fan)
...then please consider reading the book. Sharing these exact stories is the reason I wrote the book in the first place! :) And as such, you will find much, much more in its pages than I could ever offer in an e-mail.
