Happy days! Delighted with this per-zine. I really enjoyed it and a Robin is a delight to communicate with . I'll be keeping an eye for new work!


Failures & Successes

I started the Etsy shop after a failed Kickstarter campaign. I ran a campaign to publish my zines shortly after moving to Portland and it was successful. I was able to print and distribute all over the world. A year later, Dean and I tried to run a campaign together and, chalk it up to bad economy or lack of interest, our campaign tanked.

I took it upon myself to offer another venue for purchasing my titles and Etsy seemed to fit perfectly. Since then, sales have been slow but traffic is starting to increase and I've taken self-promotion into my own hands.

With the recent addition of Earn Your Sleep to this store's repertoire, I do believe that mine and Dean's writings have something for everyone.

Dean is in the planning steps on a new publication and I will be putting out issue four of 'Bird Shit' in the near future.

Hello! Welcome to Robin Yourgrave Publications, my modest attempt at getting my zine out there. What you've stumbled upon is a self-authored, self-published, hand-assembled zine that I've poured many ounces of blood, sweat, and tears into. My beginnings were rocky at best, but I feel that I've turned 'Bird Shit' into something I can be very proud of and I'm happy that it has found its way into the arms of a handful of readers 'round the globe.

New to Robin Yourgrave Publications is 'Earn Your Sleep' by Dean Omite. Little does most of the world know, but issue one of his zine it what inspired me to start a zine of my own. Pick his stuff up! You won't regret it.
