Here's one of my favorite interviews from the tour.  Me talking creativity, what writers need to know, and my soul -- all in an hour long conversation with my pal Chris Hardwick at Nerdist.  You can listen and/or download here: http://nerdist.com/nerdist-podcast-brad-meltzer-returns/.  It's a long weekend.  Treat yourself.  I promise, this one's worth it.  (Also, if you're going to a beach, I've got a good beach book for you -- hint, hint).
Brad Meltzer (Decoded, author) talks with Chris about being from Florida; they text their parents to see if they remember their family businesses in Miami, and remember video games they played as kids. Brad also talks about his line of children’s books to help girls find good role models, his new novel "The President’s Shadow," and how important it is for writers to write from the heart!

Hear that noise? That was the sound of us hitting 100,000 fans on Facebook. And to celebrate and say thank you, we're sending the 100,000th fan -- Duane Crouse -- a full set of my books. All of them, including the kids books. (Truth is, I wish we could send it to our FIRST fan here, but we have no idea who that is). smile emoticon So honoring him and all of you. Love you and sending you 100,000 hugs.

The noise I heard was astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson crapping in his pants when he read, "Waiting for the Greys!"

At the final event in Arizona, I offered to take anyone who wanted to come to go get ice cream after the event. My treat. Had a blast with those who waited and joined. Also, one of those people gave me the best gift of the tour, pictured below, in honor of my Mon. And so, I am finally...HOME. Immediately took son to see Inside Out. Can't wait to see Pixar get nominated for an Oscar. Loved of course. Best metaphysical mindstorm since freshman year of college.

To paraphrase Dr. King, the arc of history is long, but it bends towards justice. ‪#‎LoveWins‬ for my aunt, for so many dear friends, for all.

You'll see it in "I Am Lucille Ball" when it's released next week.  It's not just okay to be different.  It's spectacular.  #BeDifferent

I personally think the girl to the Left of the girl on the Right is  very Beautiful; engaged, attentive and full of depth. They are all very cute, though.

In honor of July 4th, here's some Thomas Jefferson for you:
For seventeen days, the thirty-three-year-old secluded himself in a rented room in Philadelphia.
On a small, portable desk, he began writing, laying the foundations of this new American government. Unlike every nation before it, this country’s heart would not beat with the blood of royal lines. This would be a nation based on ideals.
It took Thomas Jefferson seventeen days to find the right words. 
Seventeen days of writing and rewriting before he nervously presented his document to John Adams and Benjamin Franklin.

The Declaration of Independence became the greatest decree in Western civilization.

Jefferson could’ve easily taken credit for writing it. But he never bragged about his accomplishment. Even when he was elected president, most Americans never knew he was the author of their independence.

In fact, his authorship didn’t become common knowledge until years later after his death.

Because to Jefferson, the Declaration of Independence was written not just for all of America, but by all of America. It was the manifestation of a new nation and a new mind.

He was merely the messenger. ★
- from Heroes For My Son

"In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock."
—Thomas Jefferson

If only modern people would take similar care in their composition of Facebook statuses and tweets. I imagine very little of such profundity is composed, these days, when the 30 second glib response reigns supreme.

Gotta say, the trailer for CREED is getting me hungering in all the right ways. "I can't wear your trunks, Apollo." http://filmschoolrejects.com/news/creed-trailer.php
Chris Farley documentary trailer also looks amazing and pure heartbreak.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aofacg_Gy0E&app=desktop
Sylvester Stallone returns for 'Creed,' the sixth sequel to 'Rocky,' and passes the franchise torch to Michael B. Jordan, playing the son of Apollo Creed.

The last one, Rocky Balboa, was a nice revisit but I don't think I need any more.

This is my new favorite shirt. Most important, I just want to say thank you to ALL who bought the new book, downloaded the ebook, came to see me on book tour, or just shared the news with your friends and family, telling them The President's Shadow was the book to read this summer (I can't tell you how many people on tour told me, "My friend X sent me"). Every book launch is a family affair, so thank you for being part of our family. I'll never ever EVER be able to properly express what your kindness means to me. I'm now home (though I did surprise my son by taking him to Legoland this weekend). In three weeks comes I Am Lucille Ball as well as some real rest. But for now, hope you feel my love.
xoxo

Los Angeles brought the awesomeness, from Nerdist, to the Sklar Brothers, to going to Kevin Smith's house to talk books, life, and writing sex scenes. Really. Not even joking. Go here for the full video: https://youtu.be/4ff7Wmcqmvw?t=1h19m25s
One of the most fun hours in my nerd life. Tonight is Arizona and then I'm on the redeye and...HOME. I love every one of you.

LA brings the fun. Did some Adam Carolla podcast, event with Brian K. Vaughan, loads of old friends, and when I check into hotel... Better than Carvel. Here's what was waiting for me. Real cake! Love you too, Montage and Jason! Even more name dropping tomorrow...
