a place for zinesters - writers and readers
As April is bowel cancer awareness month, I was keen to get the first issue of the Project Dissimulation zine completed in time for April – so keen that I managed to be finished early! So far I have completed Volume I of the zine, a matching Project Dissimulation badge (I will create a new badge design for each issue, so they can be collected!), and bird badges made from upcycled postage stamps for anyone who would like a completely individual souvenir of the Project - but there is still…Continue

Includes crafty postcard projects as well as postcard labels to upcycle any artwork, waste cardstock, or any other item you choose! More pics & further info…Continue

The Enchanted Times has been sitting happily alongside my TangleCrafts stuff for the last couple of years, but it actually now makes up at least half of my stock, so that the TangleCrafts header wasn't really feeling like the most appropriate sales banner for it (although still appropriate to the rest of the stuff). Although I will continue to keep a lesser amount of ET stock in the…Continue

ENCHANTED TIMES #5 is planned for Apr/May 2012, focusing on Red Riding Hood, Beauty and the Beast and Snow White. Seeking artwork, ads, and small text snippets. Currently at least one story slot still open. Does not need to directly relate to one of the above tales - tenuous links are fine, and other stories will be considered regardless.
ENCHANTED TIMES #6 is planned for Autumn 2012, focusing on the Steadfast Tin Soldier, Thumbelina and…Continue

I've set up a new collaborative fairy tale zine project over at Art 42. This is separate to my Enchanted Times project (see previous blog posts) and offers you absolute freedom in terms of which fairy tale you use as inspiration & how you interpret it. The only restriction is page size, which is postcard-size/4" x 6"/A6/quarter-size.
I'm asking people to submit 2 pages, and…Continue

SUBMISSIONS WANTED FOR NEW ISSUE OF ENCHANTED TIMES
When it began 2 years ago, Enchanted Times was basically a vehicle invented to carry 3 revisionist fairy tale short stories/flash fiction I had already written. I had no idea at the time that it would become my only ongoing project (amidst many other one-offs); but there have now been 3 issues (#1 & #2 now condensed into an omnibus edition) plus 5 mini-zine supplements, and there is definitely more to…Continue

Hurrah! After avoiding this site for a year or more due to difficulties in editing my page, I have finally realised all I needed to do was use a different browser (Internet Explorer rather than Opera, if that helps anyone else). I have deleted old photos & added some more current pics, but will be adding more info shortly, now that I can! I have more zines available than you will see in the photos - please check out my blogs for further details:
