On January 19, 2017 I made literary history by being the first author to livestream a reading of his own novel across Twitter and Facebook. From 8pm through 12:30am I sat in front of a row of cameras and read my entire novel, ‘A Confession,’ cover to cover, for the world to see and hear.

During that broadcast, we also recorded a higher-quality video of the entire reading. It, along with enhanced audio quality, is now available on YouTube.

This footage is the entire original live broadcast, first livestreamed via Facebook Live and Periscope. This was the FIRST livestream of an author reading his own novel in its entirety in history. As such there are small breaks here and there within the video – showing the exact same start through finish that live viewers were treated to, but with improved video and audio over the original broadcast.

About ‘A Confession’

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.
