Be your own publisher.

I'm a writer, I guess. I used to have dreams of someone important finding my online blog and wanting to publish me. Then I realized, thanks to the enlightened wonder of anarchism and DIY, that I do not need a publisher and could do it myself. So I did. As it turns out, people are willing to pay to read my nonsense.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 23, 2013
* All of my zines are copied, cut, folded, and stapled by my own two hands. DIY or die, et cetera.

* They are almost always sent out within twenty-four hours of being ordered, but sometimes life gets in the way of that.

* They will come in some sort of recycled paper; it could be anything: a Denny's place mat, a Chinese food menu, a magazine page, a brown paper bag, a newspaper... one time, I used a pierogis box.

* Shipping prices are as exact as I can manage so as not to ever overcharge anyone for an already overpriced shipping charge.

* Your money that you pay me for my zines goes directly towards my travels, my Netflix account, and my rent. I live below the poverty line, so you're literally helping me. Thank you so much for supporting me.

If you don't like what you ordered, that's too bad. I'm eternally grateful you gave my work a shot and I'm truly sorry if you didn't enjoy it, but that's the "free market", right? I would suggest you pass it on to someone else who might like it.

If you never receive your order, contact me immediately and we will figure out what is best by you. I am very fair and understanding and just want you to be happy that you ordered from me!
Paypal is best, of course, but I am willing to work with you in any way I can to ensure you can get the item you want.

If sending cash, money order, or check, your item will be sent out within twenty-four hours of me getting it.

If you would like to negotiate a trade, I am always interested! Just send me a message!
Everything is sent first-class through the United States Postal Service. They don't give me a tracking number for free unless it's a certain size, so I can't always provide you with that.
