You’ve been waiting… and I love you for it.

 

Dear Friends,

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 armedanddelicious@gmail.com with questions, concerns and sonnets.

Your Pal,

Nate

Funzo Dunzo! We did it!

A&D FundedFor those who have been following my Kickstarter.com campaign, you may have heard that Armed & Delicious has surpassed it’s funding goal.

Well, it’s true! Armed & Delicious will soon become a physical book, available in Independent Bookstores as well as Online (in e-book format) and it’s all because of you.

The campaign has been a very unique experience. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, I’ve laugh-cried-laughed. But one thing I’ll certainly take away from this is that the generous and sincere nature of one’s friends, family and even perfect strangers can be absolutely staggering.

I will be posting updates to keep you apprised as to the status of Armed & Delicious.

In the meantime, I THANK YOU and can’t wait for you to read my little book.

Cheers,

Nate

What Budget? / Making the Video Pt. 2

Making The Video Pt. 2:

If things go swimmingly in the coming weeks, a Kickstarter Campaign for my novel Armed & Delicious should set sail in the vast sea we call the “World Wide Web” (while typing that, I realized that I haven’t heard that term since AOL chat rooms were still a thing).

The video for the campaign has just gone through editing, a vital and intricate part of the process and one that I have little to no practical knowledge of. I do, however, know how to buy beer and pizza for folks who do.

Pizza and beer are the ultimate barter when finances are unavailable. Friends helping you move? Beer and Pizza. A buddy lets you borrow his tent to go camping and you somehow manage to rip it to shreds? Beer and Pizza… and possibly a new tent. If some good pals help your vision for a short video become a reality, give them that Beer and Pizza. Your friends don’t drink? Non-Alchoholic beer… sorry, I’m shaking with laughter right now. Nobody should do that to their friends. Just give them Pizza and Ginger Ale.

My personal rule is, even if those helping you produce your video are close personal friends, or they owe you one, etc. – keep them fed dammit! Pizza is the ultimate food. Pizza makes magic happen. Hell, half of the premise of Armed & Delicious is based solely on the stuff.

A sneak peek from the video shoot:

Pizza Feet

Pizza Feet

During the two day shoot, I must say we had a very interesting and often enjoyable time improvising with the numerous variables which having no budget and a crew of four provide.

Some of you may be familiar with the terms “Sound Mixer” and “Key Grip”, but how many of you have heard the term “Key Sound Grip Mixer”?

Making it work.

Making it work.

Could be an industry first.

Despite my odd photography, these fellows, as well as a few not pictured above are real pros who generously donated their time to a buddy for little more than pizza and beer.

On a different note, I came across this little gem at a house party in Portland:

In my mind, every day is Dre Day.

In my mind, every day is Dre Day.

-Cheers
