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…Continue

I haven't made it to any zine fests yet, so it's cool to have a kind of virtual zine fest going on for a month. As of 7/1 I've been checking in here several times a day instead of just once a week or so. I also submitted a couple of orders to distros I haven't ordered from before (Desert City Death Distro and Things You Say Distro.) My zines are pretty well organized, so I just dug into my zines for the reads yesterday.
Today I'm apparently doing a 24 hour zine. Because I said so.…Continue

This is a good time to share with you this post I did in 2009 on my blog.
I am currently working on a zine right now, as most of you are, and this is something I wrote in the midlst of a zine making marathon:

I'm caught up listening to Alex and Derek's Nobody Cares About Your Stupid Zine podcast and so I'm participating in International Zine Month. Yesterday I ordered zines from 3 distros I hadn't before, and today I've put together pkgs to send my zines to 4 different distros!

Here are two recent kids poems of mine that I’ll collectively call a ‘Tension Twosome’. (For more such kids poetry see my book “Moon Tea”)
SHOT OUT OF A CANNON
She is the woman
shot out of a cannon
that never came down
that never came down
it’s very uncommon
but life goes on and
crowds shift about
crowds shift about
tension smacks the atmosphere
a little bit here a little bit there
‘seems not right that she’d disappear’……

On the second of August is Auckland Zinefest. This year will be a bit different to others because it's on a Thursday evening and will wrap up in about three hours, usually they are on Saturday and run for the entire day.
Every time I attend a zine fest I try to have a new magazine to giveaway and I do this by having my deadline just before Zinefest day. This year I am wanting to do something a bit different and have decided to put out a mix CD with zine booklet.
I am really…Continue

Welcome to Day One of International Zine Month! Though, I suppose, if you're a zinester on Kiritimati, or Christmas Island, it's already Day Two. Wow. So, like, if I called someone there, I'd be talking to a person who actually lives in the future. Huh... that's kind of a trip. Anyway, yay zines! [=
