My favorite Tweet

I've had a certain amount of interaction with readers in the past few weeks -- via email, book readings, and Twitter -- but I think this one was my favorite: Parajunkee ‏@parajunkee1h Because #amreading The Ascendant by @AndrewDChapman I’m thinking the gmail apocalypse might be a nefarious Chinese plot… I guess it's that the message came [...]

Too good to be true

In what reads almost like a practical joke, the NYTimes reports that a huge portion of China's 500 million internet users were re-routed to a small brick building in Cheyenne, Wyoming yesterday. You read that right. Somehow, a majority of Chinese internet traffic was routed to Wyoming. For eight hours. And no one is quite [...]

My first reading

Last night at the Barnes & Noble on 83rd and Broadway, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, I had my very first book reading and signing. I have to say -- it was a blast. We had a good crowd, it was fun to talk, fun to read from my book, there were great [...]

PUB DATE!!!

Today's the big day. Publication date. Feel free to wander down to your local bookstore and buy The Ascendant. Buy more than one -- it makes for a great gift. Or a door stop. (Actually, it's not really thick enough for a door stop. Maybe something to put your morning coffee on, so it doesn't [...]

The publicity machine

So as I gear up for the final roll out of The Ascendant, I'm doing more and more press: radio interviews, an appearance on Good Morning America, book readings and signings at bookstores.

Good Morning America

I'll write about my experience on the morning program tomorrow. But I thought I would post a few photos tonight. This one is me talking to David Muir, the host.  And then this one is my favorite,  a screen grab of my book being projected on the Good Morning America Jumbotron that looks out over [...]

A confluence of events

As someone who has been at this writing thing for many a year, I can say with certainty that it is better to be too busy than not busy enough. There have been plenty of days in the past when I sat waiting for the phone to ring. (Actually, there were plenty of weeks, months, [...]

Good Morning Lithuania

My relationship to Lithuania is a complicated one. (Isn't everyone's?) I had to make an emergency trip there last week, to help guide our final episodes across the production finish line. It was hard work, but it was worth it, and all went well. We wrapped filming, and now The Assets will air on January [...]
