Zinester Wanted

  *sigh* As you may or may not have noticed, this zine project has been neglected for awhile. Dealing with my family, school, senior year, relationships, etc. is zapping alot of my time and energy and I haven't really been able to place any focus on the zine. If there is anyone who would like to take over, please let me know. Also, if there is ANYONE who has sent me money, but has not received a zine, comment ASAP and I will send you a copy as soon as i can. I' apologize if I have inconvenienced anyone, or if anyone is mad or dissapointed in me.

Love, Kisses, and Faerie Wishes

  So I just got the published copies of the newspaper with my review in it for The Hanged Man by FLB. I love how the article came out except for one minor detail. the word junkie was replaced by the words Narcotics addict by an editor. It was a simple error that wasn't done within knowledge of the true context I was using but either way its ok, it just takes alot of the flavour out of the particular description.

I've got 6 copies to spare so anyone who would like one can let me know. It's free, all I need is postage and an addy.

email: reflectionsofashes@yahoo.com


Just felt like sharing :D

  This one time, I spammed a disgustingly lame Mean Girls rating community and I'm sorry. It's a disgusting community and I applied because I was bored and thought it would be funny.
I'm sorry.
Aparently I'm going to hell for it though. and I deserve to be called really mean names.
So, call me mean names.

  I've enjoyed being a part of this community and interacting with you beauties. Unfortunately, right now, I'm going through a lot in life with my husband and my incoming baby, and it's taking a lot out of me where I've come to realise that I must retire from Livejournal. The best of wishes to all you lovelies and may the faeries kiss you as you sleep.

  Hey everyone!
Next week is my trip to L.A. and I've never been before! I'm really excited and I want to make sure I go to all the coolest places. I was wondering if anyone could make suggestions? Especially for thrift stores, sites a film nerd would enjoy, record shops, vegetarian/vegan places to eat, etc. Thanks! (Will be X posted.)

I know you hate me for taking forever, but I've had alot of stuff on my plate these past months.
Anyway, I finally finished the 1st issue of the FLB Fanzine! Sorry that the pics are so crappy but I bought this digital camera on ebay for a dollar. I’ll try to have my friend scan a better pic tomorrow.

  Hola.
I have a few pieces of poetry and some prose that I'd be interested in submitting, if you'd be interested in taking.
As for photography, my sister recently dyed her hair dark-dark-purple, and I've been meaning to dreadlock/curl it and witch-baby her up. So, I guess if that gets done in time.
But I'm slow, and I don't know where to send these things.

I also have a crap-load of FLB-esque pictures/clippings.

Fanzine Update!

mood: rejuvenated
Sorry Sorry Sorry you pretty pixies. My life has been less than bearable the past few weeks but I'm back to earth now.

The Jan 31 deadline is going to be impossible. So it'll be extended to February 19th. Is that okay? The deadline for the cover art will be February 19th also. Is that alright with anyone. And to answer some questions:

Q:What size is the zine going to be? I was wondering what size page to decorate and send in and all that?

A: The zine will be half-sized but submissions can be half a page or a whole page or more than one page. I'm not picky.

Q:Does everything have to be FLB-related or can it be FLB-like or inspired? I have some short stories about faeries and such, and though I was planning on writing something about FLB too, I was wondering if I could submit those.

A: FLB-like and FLB-inspired is completely fine! There probably won't be any submission that I won't accept. Like I said, I'm not picky. As long as it's not really obscene or racist it'll be fine. But then again if it were obscene and racist I doubt it would be FLB-like.

Q:And is the due date still the 31st?

A: Nope. It is now Feb. 19th.

Q: How long is too long for a story?

A: To tell the truth I'm not sure. It'll really depend on how many submissions I get and long the zine ends up being. But send me the story anyway and more than likely it'll end up in the zine.

Q: Does the piece i submit have to not have been published elsewhere?

A: Submissions can already be published elsewhere. That's fine. As long as your not submitting something written by someone else. And as long as I won't get in trouble with the law for reprinting it.

Also if anyone has any pictures or any FLB-esque clippings that can be used for backgrounds and such, that would be a BIG help.

I really need to get on the ball and send in my submissions for the zine, but before I do, I was wondering...

I was thinking about a deadline for submissions for the first issue. Is January 31st alright with everyone? If I receive all submissions by then I could complete the zine by February 12th. Is the deadline too early? Too late? Let me know...

I'll leave the poll up until the deadline so that everyone gets a chance to vote. I'm not your mother and I don't give lectures but please try to act civil towards one another. I saw some comments on the poll that made me cringe. No ones a B*tch unless you mean a

*end of lecture*

I also wanted to have a cover art competition for the first issue. Do you think that's a good idea? Entries can be posted in this journal and then mailed to me. If you don't have a scanner or can't post your entry, mail it to me and I'll scan and post it.

P.S. Thank you no_imagining for mailing me your zine submission and some stamps! That's the first submission I've gotten and I look forward to receiving more!
