Found this interesting interview with Vivek Tiwary on The Daily Aztec.

Nasty - if you've read this book, I would be very interested to hear your take on how it compares to Coleman's biog. I saw your post about Coleman's and am going to order it based on your recommendation.

Vivek Tiwary will be doing a signing in Washington, D.C. at the end of the month:

At the 2014 National Book Festival

Presentation
Graphic Novels Super Session
Saturday, August 30
7:30 pm - 8:05 pm

Book Signing
Saturday, August 30
8:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Vivek Tiwary is an author, Broadway theater producer and founder of Tiwary Entertainment Group. Tiwary’s debut graphic novel, “The Fifth Beatle” (Dark Horse), tells the true story of Brian Epstein, the visionary manager behind the spotlight who led the Beatles to stardom. Despite his ambitious drive and pivotal role in mobilizing what would later become the most influential rock/pop band of all time, “The Fifth Beatle” reveals the brief life of Epstein, a tale of both triumph and tragedy. Tiwary portrays the story of a flawed and imperfect hero troubled by personal obstacles. “The Fifth Beatle” is written by Tiwary, with art illustrations by Andrew Robinson and Kyle Baker and lettering by Steve Dutro. It is a No. 1 New York Times best-seller and will be adapted into a feature film this year.

* Vivek Tiwary will be at the Chicago Fest for Beatles Fans. (And as an aside, he said at the San Diego Comic Con that he's not sure if he'll make it to the LA Fest, as it's the same weekend as the NY Comic Con).

* From the Examiner:

“The Fifth Beatle” update: Voting ends Monday among industry professionals for the Harvey Awards, in which “The Fifth Beatle,” the comic novel about Brian Epstein, is up for "Best Graphic Album - Original" and "Best Biographical, Historical, or Journalistic Presentation." The graphic novel recently won "Best Reality-Based Graphic Novel" in the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards.

A couple of updates on appearances by Vivek:

* He'll be at the Long Beach Comic Con this month.

* He sent me an email that he will definitely be unable to attend the LA Beatlefest as he will be the Special Guest of Honor at India Comic Con!

Has anyone heard Vivek Tiwary's interview podcast interview today? I was so excited when I heard about it. The guy is an amazing speaker! He talks a lot about Eppie here and The Fifth Beatle but he also goes into his whole philosophy of what it takes to be successful. The thing I liked the most is how he goes into how he picked Brian Epstein as his historical mentor when he was young to guide him through his career. And that's why he wrote the graphic novel. Has anyone heard of the idea of historical mentors before (I haven't)? Who would you pick as yours?
Here's the interview if you're interested:

Hi Bigbeat. You can contain your excitement. After all, Vivek and/or his company is paying you to post this Here, There And Everywhere on Beatles sites, right? You don't have to be all that excited because you already knew what was in the podcast right? I'd bet your house that you even wrote at least some of it for him.

I was on the fence about whether or not to buy his book. Now, after this sleazy back-door way of trying to sell us more of his crap, you have pushed me off the fence toward the "not buying it side".

How is the weather in Scottsdale today? Are you Michael Schein of the marketing firm that is trying (poorly) to insult our intelligence or just one of his flunkies? Either way, please go find another Beatles sand box to pee in.

I posted a link a while back to an episode of Fab4Free4All with Vivek who talks for a while on why he found Brian such an inspirational figure. He also answers the question of how to pronounce Epstein correctly.

If you havent heard it before Fab4Free4All is a brilliant podcast well worth subscribing to - and sadly i have zero to do with it.a-hard-days-night-paul-3
