Do you have some favorite apps on your phone that you really like or use often and suggest

I haven’t really spent too much time exploring the apps out there. I know I’d probably discover a ton of them to either make my life easier or to distract me constantly. I’m sure you guys have a thousand suggestions.

Besides the usual social networking apps, I only have a few others that I use frequently. I’ve been a fan of Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast since he started it, so I’d listen with or without an app, but Maron’s WTF app is great. I’ve got the NFL and NBA apps to keep track of my perennially awful favorite football and basketball teams. I use Goodreads and dig Politico’s app.

Oh, I have The Pope App, too! Yes, the Pope has an app. Well, the Vatican does, but it’s a really good app with lots of resources, news, Papal messages, and multimedia.

One other app I use often is the Kindle app. When I’m doing research, particularly via older books available online, I end up reading a ton of PDF files and the free Kindle app is perfect for that. Personally, I am still old-fashioned and will probably always read the print editions of books whenever I can, but the Kindle app is exactly what I need otherwise.

By the way, you know that the last thing I would EVER want to do is use this space to promote myself (*cough*), but while we’re mentioning the free Kindle app’s attributes, I would be remiss if I didn’t note than you can use it to read MY book! That’s right, the Kindle app is free, and you can break it in by buying my book, TRIBUTES AND TRASH TALK: WHAT OUR PRESIDENTS SAID ABOUT EACH OTHER, for just $4.95.

•Get my book here ( for just $4.95, or some similarly low price if you are in Canada, the UK, India, or are one of my other wonderful international readers!

•Get the Kindle app for free here (, and after you use it to read my book, TRIBUTES AND TRASH TALK, how about heading back to Amazon to rate and review the book? Am I asking for too much now? I’m sorry, I thought we were in a good place with our relationship. If rating and reviewing my book feels like we’re moving too fast, I understand. Just know that I care about your feelings, okay? I want to know what you think. I love you? You complete me. Buy my book.

Is your book on the Android Market?

No, is that a thing?  I can’t keep up with you crazy kids and your technology.

I’ll look into the Android platform, but since I haven’t plugged it in a while, my book, Tributes and Trash Talk: What Our Presidents Said About Each Other, featuring over 350 pages of remarkable, candid quotes from our Presidents about the other members of their exclusive fraternity is still available for just $6.99!  From George Washington to Barack Obama (and even including Confederate President Jefferson Davis), Tributes and Trash Talk is packed with comments that are insightful, poignant, funny, bitter, shocking, and often downright mean-spirited.

You can get Tributes and Trash Talk instantly via Amazon for your Kindle, iPad, or iPhone.  If you don’t have a Kindle, that’s no problem!  You can download the Kindle app for your iPad or iPhone right now for absolutely free and THEN buy my book.

For those of you with a NOOK device, we’ve got you covered, too.  Get your copy of Tributes and Trash Talk in a matter of seconds via Barnes & Noble.  

Buy your copy of Tributes and Trash Talk today and, as an added bonus, I’ll be your friend at no extra charge.  

A sweet book and friendship for just $6.99?  What in the blue hell are you waiting for?!

For now, I will settle for #4 on Amazon’s Hot New Releases list for books about Presidents & Heads of State, but my next book better get to #1!

Then again, you can help try to push me to #1 with this new book of mine, Tributes and Trash Talk: What Our Presidents Said About Each Other.  My fans in the United States, United Kingdom, and India have definitely stepped up this week and purchased some copies of my book, but I haven’t gotten any love from Canada!  What’s up with that?  Same with the Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese, and Portuguese editions.  I thought I was a worldwide phenomenon, but I must have been mistaken.

It’s okay, though.  The world can still make it up to me.  You can get Tributes and Trash Talk instantly for just $6.99 from Amazon for your Kindle, iPhone, or iPad.

Did you get a NOOK instead?  No worries — head over to Barnes & Noble and get my book at the same low price, a bargain for over 350 pages of remarkable, candid quotes by American Presidents about their fellow chief executives.

Maybe you’re old-fashioned like me and don’t have a Kindle or a NOOK device, but you still REALLY want to read Tributes and Trash Talk.  All you have to do is go download the Kindle app from Amazon — it’s absolutely, 100% FREE to do so — and then you can buy my book and read it via the Kindle app on your smart phone, your tablet, your laptop, or your desktop.

Don’t miss out!  After all, I am Chester A. Arthur’s all-time favorite author*!
*I totally made that up just now.  There is no actual evidence that I am President Arthur’s favorite author.  Then again, there is no evidence that says that I’m not, so you might want to consider that, too…
