Hello Kickstarter Family,

I hope this message finds you well and in the best of 2012 spirits.

Last Thursday, December 29th, 2011, I received 35,000 pounds - 10,000 copies - of Great Food Starts Fresh.  It was a sight to see 21 massive pallets of books arrive in 18 wheelers and get unloaded. (Some unloaded into my storage space and about 2,000 loaded into the U-haul that I rented which are now stacked throughout my apartment.) Whew!

I am very happy to say that after 28 hours of organizing, unwrapping, signing, re-wrapping, and packaging books, 4 trips to the post office, 3 sharpie pens, 4 ink cartridges, and countless Lattes (thank you, Latte) - all of the Kickstarter books have been mailed out!!! Yay! (That said, a few of you have not sent me your mailing address—looking forward to receiving them so I can mail you your copies.)

It's been an amazing week and I am really happy with how everything turned out with the books.

Thank you all again for your support and encouragement along the way.  It's been quite a journey and I am excited about this next leg.

I am working on updating my website to have a page with upcoming events (like book signings). When it's posted, I will let you all know.

I wish you all a wonderfully delicious New Year.

THANK YOU!

Your chef,

Nathan

      Nathan - when should we expect to receive "Great Food?" You also stated you didn't have addresses for everyone. I haven't received my books yet and I'm wondering if you got my address.
