Syndicate Product Covert HQ Annex

Hello, World.

Hello, I'm A.J., and I've been publishing zines for 10+ years.

My first regular zine title was called LOW HUG, and published ten issues between 1998-2004. In 2005, I changed the name of the zine to SYNDICATE PRODUCT, and have so far published four issues under that name.

There's also been many one-shots including LAUNDRY BASKET, 12 ITEMS OR LESS, POTLUCK!, and PRACTICE APARTMENT. I also published two reading logs, one for 2004 and one for 2007.

I'll be building up this page more (if I can figure out the interface better!) in the next few weeks. For now, you can shop for my zines at the Syndicate Product Covert HQ Etsy Zine Shop.

I also write a blog: Syndicate Product Covert HQ.

It's good to see so many people on WE MAKE ZINES that I recognize!

FUNDED! The Meta-Comics Issue is FUNDED!

Wow, the META-COMICS issue is funded as of 8:55pm tonight. I'm completely overwhelmed by the generosity of all of the backers, and very glad I decided to take a chance and use Kickstarter to fund the project.

A few things I've learned so far:

1. Have a modest goal and provide a budget in your project description to show where the money will go.

2. Have reasonable reward levels. For this, $1 got a "thank you" in the zine, $5 a PDF of the issue, and $10 a dead tree copy of…


Kickstarter almost there! Only $65 left to go!

Wow! It can really work for small projects!


There's only $65 left to go to get the Meta-Comics Issue fully funded on Kickstarter! $1 gets you a "thank you" in the zine, $5 a PDF of the issue, and $10 the dead tree version. If you pledge more, the rewards increase!

Hey! You can change the look of your page by going here: http://wemakezines.ning.com/profiles/appearance/edit and choosing a different skin/template.

You can also change how your page looks by moving around the boxes. Move your mouse over the boxes on your profile page and you'll see the arrow turn into this 4-headed thing. Anytime you see that, you can click and drag to move that box somewhere else on your page. Krissy gives some other tips in her notes.
