New look for MM

Hi all,

I'm proud to announce that Mustache Monthly now has a screen printed cover! Whee! I'm still getting the hang of it, so it looks a bit messy, but it's going to be awesome! The new cover takes off in the September issue, which will be coming out soon.

Is it really not that personal if i'm willing to print it..?

One dilemma over; another 16 present themselves!! but first, my SUCCESSFUL ruling out has led me to a decision, thanks to much good advice from fellow zinesters and a friendly shove from the hubby - i've concluded that before i can write in the now, i feel a necessary urge to push through a previous incomplete writing excerpts of sorts that was 6 or so yrs in the making.. it is for lack of better description 'my book'. i wrote in it when i felt like something must be said but the words escaped… Continue

Published in Broken Pencil & Artful Agendas!

I met the editor, Lindsay, at the Buffalo Small Press Book Fair in March of this year. She asked me to write something for the "Zine Philosophy" section of the mag - why I make zines, my inspiration, and "philosophy" about them. I did mine zine-style -… Continue

After wandering a bit

It's been a busy few months since I was here last. I finished the second vol. of Phaugey Dox and they have since become part of a larger book.

A grand zine. I'm working on two at the moment. They have offered obsticals of how to put them together which I have solved by wrapping the folded edges to make the binding..

Evolution at work. I'm working on some papers which could be turned into individual zines at some point, but who's to say.

I'm still enjoying the process.

summertime makes me crazy...

this summer has been hectic, as it usually is since my brain goes haywire every summer. i don't want to sleep or stop doing anything, yet i never feel like i'm doing enough. this is something that has been plaguing me for a few years now, but summer makes it more obvious. i have a million projects on my mind and in the works. sometimes i feel like i am just spread to thin to finish any of these projects. my to-do list just keeps getting longer and as it does, i fall into procrastination mode.… Continue

A blog dedicated to Submission Calls?

I have been toying with the idea of creating a blog that would be a central space for people to share submission calls for compilation zines.

The person requesting the submissions would email me their description and instructions including a deadline.

I will also encourage follow ups - being that the person would email me when the zine is completed and let me know how people could obtain the zine.

I would post all of the information on the…
