200

It’s difficult to believe, but I’ve published just over 200 posts on WordPress! I started WordPressing March 2012 and have had a wonderful time sharing my thoughts and work with the world. The best part of this experience has been interacting with all the amazingly creative, talented, interesting, warmhearted, and generous individuals who have connected with me through their comments. Thank you so much!!! :)

In the coming weeks, I will be working hard on raising funds through Indiegogo for my short film Death Is No Bad Friend. I am absolutely thrilled to be working with such amazing filmmakers (Siren’s Gaze Productions) on this project. And I hope that everyone here will help support us!

Best regards,

G. E.

All last week, I was busy putting together “The Ink Drinker” zine and was having a great time doing so. Plus, they’re turning out even better than I expected!

Production of these zines involve printing, folding, hammering, and sewing. Who knew I’d be hammering an awl into my lovely paper zines… with a real, heavy-duty hammer nonetheless!

The covers are printed on 65-pound, nautral-color paper, while the interior pages are printed on 24-pound, white paper. They look really fancy!

Preview of the finished zines coming soon. :)

Upcoming Zines: “The Ink Drinker,” Etc.

The Ink Drinker Title

Over the years, I’ve accumulated a number of short stories. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to submit them to literary journals or put them up on my blog. But my recent discovery of and appreciation for zines led me to find the perfect solution of self-printing/self-publishing.

There are about five short stories from my collection I think I’d like to one by one turn into zines, not necessarily in the following order:

  1. “The Ink Drinker”
  2. “Bludgeoning The Walrus”
  3. “Robots Are a Girl’s Best Friend”
  4. “Ulysses in Hell”
  5. “Go Jump in the Lake”

Each zine will include cover art (illustrated by me, of course), a card stock cover, and will be hand-bound with awl, needle and thread.

I begin with “The Ink Drinker,” a dystopian story about a young girl who learns the truth about an outcast of society. This story is somewhat influenced by Mervyn Peake’s Gormenghast and illustrations, possibly some Edgar Allan Poe and definitely some Edward Lear among other things.

I’ve always wanted to continue or expand upon this story (as a novel, graphic novel, or screenplay), but haven’t had the chance yet. So I thought I’d share it with all of you as it is now for the time being. :)

You can expect “The Ink Drinker” up on my store (thepoetandtheflea.storenvy.com) once it opens!!
