“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…
Done! Just look at them in all their paperly glory.
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 email@example.com
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 –
