a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Dreams of Donuts #18 is done, and can be purchased for $2 through mail order or from my Etsy shop. This issue is subtitled "I'm Really Sorry", and is all short stories about times when I have done someone in my life harm and my apologies for those times. It's 1/2 letter, 32 pages, all in comic format.
I have a new job.
Celebrate the Fourth on the 3rd with a fifth by poppin' open a keg or three and relaxing with The Last Word! The Last Word has returned after a year-long hiatus. The Last Word was once a free publication, but I have to eat just like you earthlings do, so now I've brung it back and am selling it for a cost of 99 cents. (Cheap!) It's 99 cents for the 99%!
What is The Last Word? That's a question any child may ask you, but it is not a childish question. The new incarnation of The Last Word is a hybrid of a left-wing bulletin, a hilarious comic book, and a collection of personal stories. You'll read it and peep!
The latest edition talks about sorting through old broken toys, Indiana's busted school system, some uproarious poo-poo stories, and more! You can download it here...
And remember, The Last Word is a supporter of the Occupy movement.

Pieces #8.5 / The Flip Side
Perzine 1/4 size : 34 pages
This is a split zine I did with my mother for the 24-hour Zine Thing. Zines have been a way for me to communicate with her some difficult things about myself, and I wanted her to share this medium of expression with her. I was delighted when she accepted! This is a lighthearted zine filled with stories about the library, transient pets, a recipe, favorite numbers, quotes, and blackout poetry.
Here is a link to my latest issue of Soup Zine, my July issue in celebration of Zine Month.
It is a 76 pager that is about (in part) my recent obsession with cut paper style portraits.
Feel free to print it out for free. It is in Read version, so if you want to print it, you'll need to do some cut and pasting.
Erebus the Cat is a comicbook about one of my partner's cats. It's pretty weird, cute, trippy, and rambly. Mostly it was drawn and written when I was very tired.

You can also send me a message through either site if you have any questions.
Here it is my latest version of Soupzine. Finally finished/figured out the page layout for my print version of my zine. Man, that was a lot of work.
Remember to go into properties and select (2-sided print, flop on short edge) or your prints may be wrong side up (or down). At least that is how it work on my printer.
(read online version)
Feel free to print a few copies for yourself, to handout and/or donation to a zine library.
Please don’t not reprint sections into your own zine or sell the zine without asking me first OK.
It is 19 pages (76 zine pages), so you might need to rubber band it. I have not tried stapling it yet.
Tell me what you think.
The 12th issue of my feminist perzine features writings on self-improvement and new year’s resolutions, plans for the future, misogyny in rock and metal music, identity, and developing a sense of self. 40 pages, with a colour cover.
Buy a copy on my website, or get in touch for trades! (selected trades only, preferably UK)
The hilarious August edition of The Last Word is now pub-a-roo, and it's available for a price tag of only 99 cents. (Cheap!)
This humor-filled ish deals with the following topics...
• More uproarious old toys and the flatulence that goes along with them.
• The microapartment price-gouging scam.
• When things stink.
• A former school principal's right-wing Facebook meltdown.
• Some roll-on-the-floor funny YouTube videos I've found.
• The last 2 years of road trips and the path of hilarity that has ensued in their wake.
I also explain how AdSense has forced me to sell my work instead of giving it away for free like I used to be able to do.
Read The Last Word now before it reads you...
And remember, The Last Word supports the Occupy movement.
