Mark your calendars people! On January 19, 2017 I will be doing a LIVE reading of my latest novel, ‘A Confession’ in its entirety and livestreaming the whole thing.
The stream will start at 8:00 pm Eastern Time, and will be broadcast via both Facebook Live and Twitter/Periscope.
Barring any technical difficulties, the plan is for me to read the entire novel, start to finish, all in one stream (with occasional breaks to use the restroom).
So mark your calendars, and make sure you’re following me on Twitter and Facebook to be alerted when the reading begins. It’s sure to be an interesting event, as I’ve never done something like this before … and honestly I don’t know of anyone who has.
SO JOIN ME AS I MAKE LITERARY HISTORY.
… and in case you’re wondering what A Confession is all about:
How far would you go to clear your own conscience? Would you destroy another’s integrity purely to ensure your own absolution? In ‘A Confession,’ we are confronted by a man who’s reached the limit of what even he can rationalize as within the limits of his own morality. Having reached his breaking point, he reaches out in desperation to purify his own conscience, spilling the secrets of his life that have formed the man he has become – even if doing so means destroying others in the process.
In this modern tale of amorality, William F. Aicher takes us through the memories of a man who, while having lived a life of confident righteousness, now questions the very fiber of which he is made. Taking inventory of a life defined by substance abuse, love, sex, politics and a newfound ease of inflicting public shame with the help of social media, ‘A Confession’ invites the reader to take a seat and listen to a man come to grips with his own secrets.
As these truths are exposed, the rationality and logic behind them begins to unfurl, leaving both the narrator and reader ultimately questioning if indeed any of us can claim to be truly good.
