I did not receive as many pre-purchases as I had hoped and so, while I will create copies with color covers as promised for those who pre-purchased, I will make the rest in B/W.
If you are used to reading zines online or are more familiar with the glossy, high production values of the current crop of indy publishing, the look and feel of my first-generation-styled, DIY creation may surprise you.
The point of zines is simply to get information and creative material out there; so the first generation of zines (from roughly 12-15 years ago) were simple in format. Based on my budget, that was how I proceeded. You will find that, although this zine is very simple in appearance, the printed material is clear and readable. You should have no difficulty reading either the text or the lead sheets inside.
This was an experiment and a labor of love, and it is unlikely that I will do something like this again out of my own pocket. I simply can't afford to give my music away in this manner. I have much to learn about self-promotion and marketing, and this was a very useful learning experience.
The finished zine has 27 pages of original creative content, including lead sheets for eight songs.
I have twenty copies of the zine/songbook available that I will sell for $11 each with postage.
If you would prefer to print it yourself, I will provide you with the electronic files for $9. To purchase, please use the contact link at top. Thanks!
