I just wanted to post and say how EXCITED I am about today and what today brings.
Today is a zine fair at the Penrith Regional Gallery in Emu Plains. I am especially delighted today because I have loads of new stock in the distro and I can't wait to see Tiny Paper Hearts new felt animals. I also can't wait to find a new notebook to spew my thoughts into all the time. It's been far too long without a pen in my bag.
Besides this, I also just sent off some $$ for a zine grab… Continue

So, I have been having this battle with my zine collection and my shelves. It comes down to the fact that this zine collection that is over 15 years old and even though it was picked over by my ex-husband I still have a ridiculous amount of zines and not enough shelf space for them. Over the years I have come to find that the zines that are dearest to me are ones that have been created by friends and penpals so those are the ones that will be staying with me. however, even after that filter… Continue

Yesterday I started a group on We Make Zines called Lets Trade Zines! I was hoping to be able to get all the zinemakers together who want to trade zines and make it easier for them to trade. Sometimes I contact people and I am a little worried that they won't want to trade with me. This group means people will post up a comment and that will act as a surety that they want to trade!!! I've already had one request for my zines from the Lets Trade Zines so I hope many more will come.

Hey! I finally got around to making more copies of Diatribe Issue Five and finished Diatribe Issue Six!
Issue five (25 copies were released in 2006) covers such fantastic topics as my conflicting views on religion (and the value voters folks), drunk dialing, the short list of things that really ire up my blood (nationalists, "manly" men, and and rockabilly to name a few) along with some contributions from my good friend Will (a history… Continue

Do you talk about your fetish for cupcakes or your undying devotion to large pots of soup?
Do you have a thousand recipes in your head just waiting to burst out onto paper? Do you make a recipe zine?
DO YOU HAVE A FOOD ZINE? Is really what I am asking you.
Because if you do, I am desperate for it. I want to cook some new food and I want to share it with the people who buy things from my zine distro. Get in contact...now!… Continue

I just returned from the successful Philly Zine Fest on Oct. 5 at the Rotunda in University City. Thank you to the organizers for putting on this event and to being so welcoming to Brooklyn zinesters Brandi Lee and redguard, who still got a table even though we were driving around lost in Philadelphia for an hour.
The turnout was good, the space was wonderful and child-friendly, I made a lot of great trades and met some terrific zinesters. The highlight for me was Sarah Arr!'s… Continue

How do I love zines? Let me count the ways.
I love the way you come from people who are earnest and sincere in their interests, hobbies, rants and raves. I love the way you speak to me with a voice untainted by large corporations and media outlets. I love the way you sniggle into my heart, limping in on a postage stamp that costs more and more until you fear you cannot eek out another. (It only makes you more precious.)
I love the way you tell me what you think, what you… Continue

Another year, another batch of zine work in this small town I call a vacation spot.
There are now 60 zines in the Samuel H. Wentworth Public Library in Sandwich, NH, and you can check them out just like a book!
I'm proud to put them on the cutting edge, but worried that the zines won't be taken seriously (they haven't been so far, even by the librarians, grrr). I posted to the town email list with a big rah-rah description and will hope for the best.
Next summer… Continue
