Somehow, this video got past us. It's a one hour speech Chuck gave at Grub Street's writer's conference last May of 2010. This was a non-public event that actually kicked off Chuck's Tell-All tour that year.
Props to our own Mark Vanderpool for finding this one on Vimeo.
For nearly as many books as Chuck has written, journalist Rick Kleffel has conducted a thorough and enlightening audio interview with him for his site, The Agony Column Podcast. While a little late this time around, Rick has just edited together his interview with Chuck that was recorded during last year's Tell-All tour.
Here's some words from Rick on the piece:
This is one of the best videos put together for a Chuck's reading I've ever seen. I was at this event with guests and I really must say, they captured it well. Props to Jordon Chesney, who shot and edited this. The location was Largo at The Coronet Theater in Los Angeles. The date, May 18th. It was done in association with The Nervous Breakdown. Enjoy!

Chuck has an arrangement with St. Helen's whereby they take custom orders on their website that allow fans to request a personal inscription with each book Chuck signs.

St. Helens has a great track record and we've been working with them on this endeavor for over three years now.

This is a great little video report from Chuck's New York City reading for Tell-All earlier this month. The reading was held by The Stranger at the Cooper Union hall. Asylum.com captures some classic moments from the event, interviews the fans, and even speaks to Chuck's agent and editor.
All in all, this is a very strong, succinct video feature that you should all check out.
