Description

{♥ Always read the Shop Announcement & full listing description before placing an order or sending a message! ♥}

Ragdoll House is the story of two girls who must decide if their hometown is still their home. Ruby, a shy sometimes-writer, meets Maria, a femme dyke with a painful past, when she responds to a roommate wanted ad. Exploring girl-friendship and survival as queer, weird girls in a small town, they share an apartment that once functioned as a home for lost girls. As they struggle with their own secrets and losses, Ruby and Maria rely on coffee, booze, and each other, to learn about jealousy, support, and letting go.

Maranda Elizabeth has been writing since birth and self-publishing for over a decade. They recently published a zine anthology, 'Telegram: A Collection of 27 Issues', and have toured throughout Canada and the U.S. Maranda’s writing has been influenced by growing up with riot grrrl and punk, living in a small town, being a proud misfit, and constantly seeking magical friendships and creative adventures. They identify as feminist, genderqueer, crazy, and weird. Maranda grew up in Lindsay, Ontario and is currently living in Toronto. 'Ragdoll House' is their first novel.

{AN IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT MONEY: My novel, Ragdoll House, is also available through my publishers, AuthorHouse.com, as well as Amazon.com, and major chain bookstores like Chapters in Canada and Barnes & Noble in the U.S., which is exciting as fuck. HOWEVER, I make more money when you buy my book directly from me. When you buy a $20 book, that does not put $20 into the author's pocket. Here's how it works: When you buy my book from Amazon and chain bookstores, I make between $1 - $2.50; when you buy my book from AuthorHouse, I make between $2 - $4.50; and when you buy my book directly from me, either in person or through Etsy, I make $5 - $8.00. When you buy the e-book, I get nothing. While postage may cost more, you are giving more money to the artist when you buy from them directly, and that's the kind of support us broke folks need. Thank you!}

I also wrote a zine to further demystify the writing & self-publishing process, & it's available here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/153838467/telegram-29-zine-maranda-elizabeth

    Reading this feels like holding a history that is for all us freaky gay crazy loners. I really respect the way Miranda put together all their zines and shared the narrative that wove through them over a long period of time. It illustrates survival that is nourishing in the way it’s shared; as zines are at their best! It feels so inspiring, and makes me feel pride where embarrassment use to be about the zines that don’t quite speak to where I’m at now.. cause that shits important! The way they write about their experiences do more than resonate they illuminate the value in sharing your own also. 💜
