Robert K. Blechman Announces First Ever Twitter Novel Trilogy
by BWW News Desk - Jan 16, 2017

'I Tweet, Therefore I Am' by Robert K. Blechman Though reality is not copy protected, fair-use stipulations do apply. 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am,' a laugh-out-loud, comic mystery novel originally posted in real time tweets on Twitter launches as a Kindle eBook on Monday, January 16, 2017. A creative innovator of the Twitter Fiction movement, Robert K. Blechman's novels are live-tweeted mystery narratives, now gathered into book form. 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am' is compelling, entertaining, and shows off what can be done in the 140-character form with style and mastery. With send-ups of the mystery genre, social media conventions and cell phone behavior, 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am' is a cornucopia of word play and comic misdirection stuffed with punny dialogue, clever character conditions, and a total lack of adherence to the old rules of storytelling. Robert K. Blechman's delight in the language shows in every tweet - that is to say, every thread of the story. His plot is tight, tingling, and diverting. The three books of The Twitstery Twilogy (ie. Twitter Mystery) depict the exploits of the world's only tweeting detective, unreliable narrator that he is. He tweets his experiences in real time, and the fact that he tells his story in tweets, that is 140 characters at a time, shapes his interpretation of the crimes he investigates. About the Author Robert K. Blechman graduated from the University of Chicago with a BA in English Literature and earned an MBA in finance and a Ph.D. in Media Ecology from New York University. He has held a senior technology management positions at such iconic institutions a Columbia University Medical Center, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, HarperCollins Publishers and CBS News and teaches courses in communication and media studies at Fordham University. 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am' was preceded by national best-selling Twitter novel Executive Severance, Book 1 of the Twitstery Twilogy (NeoPoiesis Press, 2011) which won The Mary Shelley Award for Outstanding Fiction and by The Golden Parachute, (Kindle eBook, 2016). Product Details 路 File Size: 2001 KB 路 Print Length: 277 pages 路 Publication Date: January 16, 2017 路 Sold by: Amazon Digital Services LLC 路 Language: English 路 ASIN: B01N5N3RAZ 路 Text-to-Speech: Enabled 路 X-Ray: Not Enabled 路 Word Wise: Enabled 路 Lending: Enabled 路 Enhanced Typesetting: Enabled Reviews 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am' is not only a paean (not pain) to Twitter, but to mystery and time-travel stories as well, bringing us: twisted palindromes; just desserts spelt or spelled backwards; meditations on 'dreeting' or 'tweaming' which happens when sleep tweeting; and not just Farley but also Stuart Granger (stranger than true but true). And there are lots of memorable music references, too, including 'Torn Between Two Lovers,' one of my all-time favorite lame songs. But there's nothing lame about 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am.' Read and enjoy, and do keep in mind its injunction that 'though reality is not copy protected, fair-use stipulations do apply.' - Paul Levinson, author of The Plot to Save Socrates, Loose Ends, and Ian's Ions and Eons. 'The genre of Twitstery, established by Robert K. Blechman in his Executive Severance turns to Phantwitsmagoria in the final book of his trilogy, 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am.' A detective story written in tweets takes readers into a crazy voyage to a mystic Caribbean island, somewhat reminiscent of H.G. Wells' The Island of Dr. Moreau with an odd campus on it. This is most likely the only detective novel in the world, literally (oh, yes, twitterally) stuffed with Marshall McLuhan quotes. Adepts will appreciate the play of allusions, while detective novel fans will just enjoy the story full of irony and witty puns.' - Andrey Miroshnichenko, author of Human as Media: The Emancipation of Authorship. Also by Robert K. Blechman Executive Severance (2011) Executive Severance, the Twitstery Twilogy, Book 1, won the 2012 Mary Shelley Award for Outstanding Fictional Work from the Media Ecology Association. Police Detective Arkaby a by-the-book procedural investigator so full of himself he tweets every particular of his investigation, confronts his most baffling case with the discovery of the completely severed body of a renown scientist and industrialist. His Twitter habit nearly costs him his own life at the hands an adversary who secretly follows his Twitter account. The Golden Parachute (2016) In The Golden Parachute, The Twitstery Twilogy, Book 2, Police Detective Arkaby receives an unlikely visitor from his past who sets him off on an international mystery quest. Literary adepts will appreciate the play of allusions, while detective novel fans will just enjoy the murder mystery story full of irony and witty puns.
