earlyjulybooks: Call For Submissions - Early July Books

Hey everyone!
I've been making zines since I was in the 8th grade, and distributing zines for almost 3 years now.
I used to operate my distro under other names including Hello Saturday, and This Saturday Night; this year I began attending college and I've moved to a larger space so I decided that I wanted to expand the distro. I decided to change the name to Early July Books.

I'm looking for zines of all kinds, including music, pesonal, resource, DIY, and anything else! I'd really would love to get more music zines in the distro though.

If you are interested you can email your zine to: 


4535 S Lockwood Ridge Rd
Sarasota, FL 34231

If you'd like to submit an electronic copy you can email it to: earlyjulybooks@yahoo.com
*I can do consignment or wholesale, whichever is easiest for you!

[www.earlyjulybooks.com] <-- The site is pretty naked and I'll be updating it and changing it throughout this month.
[I'll be cross posting this. Sorry!]

twelveohtwo: 24 hour zine challenge -- kick off event this WEDNESDAY at the toronto zine library!

Happy (belated) International Zine Month everyone!

To celebrate, the Toronto Zine Library is participating in the 24 hour zine challenge and we would love for you to join us! We are hosting a kick off event this Wednesday, July 28th starting at 5pm and going strong until the Tranzac Club closes.

What is the 24 hour zine challenge, you ask?
A yearly event where one attempts to make a 24 page zine from start to finish in 24 hours. From initial idea right through to photocopying/collating/stapling your zine. More information, list of this year's participants and sign up can be found here: http://24hourzines.com/

(Please note that you dont *have* to register and/or send your zine in when its finished. We encourage you participate to whatever degree you are most comfortable with. Or, you are welcome to just come and hang out at the TZL and cheer participants on!)

Bring your ideas and if youre able a snack to share while we hang out, listen to music, and get a start on our 24 hour zines! Some supplies will be available (paper, glue, scissors, magazine clippings, a couple of typewriters, a long arm stapler) but please do bring your favourite or necessary zine making supplies. Conveniently, there is a 24 hour Kinkos a half-block away!

Also, similar to the event folks at the Independent Pubishing Resource Center (http://www.iprc.org/) in Portland Oregon held a few days ago, we will be streaming our 24 hour zine challenge event live! If you're unable to join us, bookmark http://www.ustream.tv/channel/toronto-zine-library-24hr-zine-challenege and tune in on Wednesday starting at 5pm EST and participate alongside us from wherever you may be.

Hey everyone! After my recent move, Black Light Diner Comics and Zines is back in business, with new zines in stock! Check them out:


The fifth issue of Rachel Lee-Carman's personal/comics zine includes even more funny, short pieces, on such diverse topics as the insanity of Costco, serving Stephen Baldwin (and saving his receipt!), and the death of a childhood cat. There are also how-to articles on how to make a one-page mini-zine using both sides of the paper, and how to make prints using modge podge, magazines, and tape! This is such a fun, spontaneous zine, which can make you laugh one minute and cry the next. Half-size, 36 pages.

moreCollapse )

Also, in honor of International Zine Month, all orders $20 or over in the month of July will receive a free zine! Just write your preferred free zine in the comments section on Paypal, or on paper, if postal mail is the way you roll.

Thanks for reading!
