I do a 'zine called night cookies. it's... a twenty-six year old transsexual single mama of two on all kinds of stuff, like chickens, homeschooling, sex, breaking up, radical politics (okay, only a little bit about that, you caught me), and lots more.

I've previously done a series of fiction 'zines, the first of which was called My Secret Girl Diary, about a young transsexual girl who hasn't come out as such yet and what happens in her life when a post-transition trans girl her age moves to her town. I might rerelease all of those in one 'zine. Soon my very short novel, Queer Science, will be a 'zine, too. It's about a nerdy teenage trans girl whose best non-trans girl friend uses her computer to turn her into the girl of her dreams after a late night viewing of the really, really sexist and bad 80's movie "Weird Science."

My first 'zine was called "Grrrldick #1" and it was as awesome and terrible as it sounds. Most of it was written when I was 16 and 17.

"IPRC has the best copies for homemade zines, but I found an awesome place if you are using a computer. It's called www.docucopies.com. They have really cheap copies."

Hey There! Are you into trades? I would love to trade for night cookies.

There is a list of my available zines on my WMZ blog, but it boils down to here's what i have available: poetry, smut, perzine/poetry combo about doing a work exchange at a retreat for writers/artist in rural Kansas, candy reviews, perzine about being queer but feeling invisible as such because I'm in a relationship with a fellow.

If any of these sound interesting to you, let me know.

Hey,

I work at the Cantú Queer Center at UCSC. We're starting a zine library and would love to host your zines. Let me know how much you'd like for your zines. Also we're gearing up for a the Trans-Mixer at UCSC in January and would love to pass out some of your zines.
