Armed & Delicious… in your hands, in your hearts… in your mouths?

Unless one subsists on a diet of tree pulp and non-toxic black ink, then my DEBUT novel “ARMED & DELICIOUS” might not make the ideal midnight snack… so, I’m not sure why I titled my post thusly.

I suppose the gist of what I’m trying to get at, on this lovely summer eve, is that my novel, ARMED & DELICIOUS is now available in paperback form! Where? Well at Powell’s City of Books, of course! You can find it in store or order directly!

Powells shelf

Powell’s, for those who haven’t had the pleasure of browsing through an  actual CITY BLOCK worth of books, is a literary treasure, located in my current city of Portland, Oregon.  It’s a damn near labyrinth of words and volumes and to have my novel receive its own bit of real estate amongst so many great titles is an honor.

Did I mention that Powell’s is independent through and through? Oh yeah. Punk Rock to the core, my friends, which suits me just fine.

While most authors would want to have their paperbacks on “The Website That Shall Not Be Named”, I believe that the independent spirit of “Armed & Delicious” goes further than just bucking the trends of what’s “hot” or “popular” in fiction and to put it simply: I love bookstores. I also love discovering new books in said bookstores and if that bookstore happens to be owned and operated by actual people, then all the better.

Granted, Armed & Delicious is also available in e-book form HERE , HERE and the Apple iBookstore, but in this day and age I guess that’s just par for the course.

In closing, I encourage you to support independence in all its forms and to at all costs, stay sexy.

 

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
