International Zine Month post #2

Posted on July 5, 2012 at 7:35pm 0 Comments

I got a bunch of new zines in the mail today to read!! 

And I have been writing a lot the last few days, for two different zines I'm writing, Bookstore Thief #2 and a so-far-untitled zine that will be interesting tidbits about all the places I've lived.  Or maybe part 1 of all the places, as there are a lot. 

I sent off a piece for a friend's zine that's all about zombies.

Tuesday I ordered a headset with mic from Amazon, as I've decided I want to start doing my own…

My New Zine Bookstore Thief

Posted on November 18, 2008 at 9:46pm 1 Comment

Hi Everyone,

I just started a new zine called Bookstore Thief, after being out of the zine world for about 15 years. Back in the day I used to write a zine called Every Girl's Dream. Anyhoo, this one is mostly bookstore adventures, as in working in them. One day I got robbed at gunpoint. And that is how this zine came into being. You can buy a copy at my etsy shop, or I might be willing to trade for your zine. I like… Continue

Hello again! Never heard back from you about where I should send my bookstore story so you can decide if you want to use it. Please let me know. If you don't want to use it, I want to post it on my blog.

Thanks for your message. Good to hear from you.

Is there an email address I can send the bookstore story? If you want to add me as a friend here, then we could send each other email. However you want me to contact you is fine with me.

I have a story that I just dug up. It might be to risque for your zine. It's about sex in a closed bookstore and includes curse words. I understand if you are not interested, but please let me know. If you have no interest in using it, I am going to post it on my blog. If you want to read it before you decide, that's cool too.
