Grand Rapids Zine Fest

Yesterday I tabled at Grand Rapids Zine Fest, which was my first experience tabling at a zine fest outside of Chicago. I had a lot of fun and met a lot of great people, which has me excited to check out other Midwestern zine fests!

Here are all the zines I picked up. Can’t wait to read them all!

I added something new to my repertoire for this zine fest, Touch & Go (a novel in increments). I wrote this novel in my early to mid-twenties and I’ve always meant to do something with it; however, I had a lot of problems with it as it was. In order to motivate myself to edit it, I decided to release it in zine form a few chapters at a time. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping people are into it. If they are, I plan on self-publishing it as a paperback book at some point.

Here’s what I took with me, plus I brought an assortment of my photo postcards, of course!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by to look through my stuff and chat. Special thanks to everyone who bought a postcard or a zine. Extra special thanks to Sara and Drew for organizing the whole thing!

If you weren’t able to make it and are interested in getting a copy of Touch & Go (a novel in increments) Vol. 1, Second City Vegan (recipe zine) or Rip It Up & Start Again, visit my Storenvy page.

Addendum: Chicago folks Second City Vegan and Touch & Go (a novel in increments) are now available at Quimby’s, too!

 

 

Throwback Thursday – Watkins Glen, NY

Last October Nick turned 40, so we packed the dogs up in the car, drove to Buffalo to pick up Nick’s family and spent a few days down in Watkins Glen, NY. We visited Farm Sanctuary; hung out together at the 3 bedroom house we rented that had a gigantic yard, which the dogs had a ton of fun running around in/exploring and we put together a giant puzzle. Here are some of the highlights from that trip.
