Ep 1: Bum-Pinching Danger Crabs
an interview with writer Nate Nate Nainers
kier here is a free digital newsletter sent out every Friday at noon PST.
Hello My Darlings!
You are in for a treat today: an interview with writer, community builder and all-round sweethearted perv, Nate Nate Nainers. We discuss their debut book, a delightfully unhinged collection of short stories called It’s Gonna Be Sick As Hell!, illustrated by Channy-B. We cover a lot of ground in this interview, from playing with masculinity and hoaxing your coworkers to unleashing creative potential by sucking at the teat of Big Daddy Trudeau. If, after listening, you realize you simply MUST get your filthy paws on this book as soon as meatsackly possible, come to the launch event from 2–4pm on May 21st at The Bookcase in Maple Ridge.
Above is the audio, below is the video—pick your poison and enjoy!
Coming Soon: “Dear Kier,” A Bad Advice Column
As someone who is Chronically Unsuccessful and Completely Unqualified to provide guidance of any kind, I’ve decided to add a bad advice column to this newsletter. Romantic issues? Career problems? Dismal financials? Why yes, I have those too, but I won’t let that stop me from trying to solve yours. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to submit a question, and in an upcoming newsletter, I will provide advice that you should not, under any circumstances whatsoever, follow. I look forward to leading you hopelessly astray <3
