Paperbacks of Armed & Delicious are available now.
I’ll be on 94.7 fm, Alternative Portland, talking with Gustav about Armed & Delicious as well as playing some of the musical tracks I was listening to whilst writing…
If you don’t live in Portland you can listen tonight at 947.fm at 6pm. You can also download the 94.7 app on your smartphone!
“Wait, what?! PHASE THREE? What ever happened to PHASES ONE and TWO?” You just said, I’m sure.
They both happened, my friend. I just didn’t post much about them. But I’ll catch you up, real quick.
PHASE ONE of the KICKSTARTER THREE-PHASE-SERIES for “Armed & Delicious” was to raise first the funds, which was completed thanks to a handful of wonderful folks like you.
PHASE TWO consisted of actually publishing the book…
So, what is PHASE THREE?
Why, it’s the most important Phase in any Kickstarter Campaign (of course), and that is to deliver the “goods” to my Kickstarter Backers. In this case the “goods” being of the literary variety.
Granted, there were some hiccups, delays and and all around sadly vague excuses for why Armed & Delicious was taking so damned long to publish, but as they say, better late then never! (yikes)
Below is an image of me pondering wistfully the smile of joy and satisfaction crossing your face at the very moment that you’ve realized your hard earned “goods” have just arrived.
There you have it folks. PHASE THREE COMPLETE. Now, by the time most of my Kickstarter Backers have read this, they’ll already be nose deep in the book they helped to create. But, if you’re reading this and you’ve yet to receive your Kickstarter rewards in the mail, give your ol’ pal Nate a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll sort you out.
… and with the Kickstarter Chapter complete (to a greater or lesser extant) we now find ourselves at the threshold of a new chapter titled, “WHAT THE HELL TO DO WITH AN INDEPENDENTLY PUBLISHED NOVEL?”
You’re Pal –
Yes my friends, the trade paperbacks of my novel “Armed & Delicious” have arrived!
Now I will be focusing on getting Armed & Delicious into independent bookstores across America.
Would you like to see it in your local bookstore?
Holler at your pal and with a shop that you love and I will begin the courting process immediately, because getting to know a bookshop is kind of like a first date. As long as you keep your breath fresh and don’t get sloppy-wasted, you’ll do just fine.
– Your Pal,
As you may have noticed, my most recent “shipping date” came and went like a ship in the night and with nary a whisper of publication (Sorry!). But today, my friends, I am writing you to say that Armed & Delicious, the book which you have supported, is in print-production as we speak!
The e-book version is also in the publication phase and will soon be available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble online and the Apple Ibook store.
This means that within the next 7-10 business days I should be receiving your books in the mail and shipping them directly! The additional reward goodies have already been coming in and I couldn’t be more pleased with how they’ve turned out.
As always, feel free to contact me at email@example.com with questions, concerns and sonnets.
