spring solstice and gwg anniversary!

Happy Spring Solstice everyone! Happy one year Anniversary Grow Write Guild! I’m spending the solstice starting seeds and roller skating. Even though there’s still snow on the ground I won’t let that hold me back from celebrating the lengthening days and nearly approaching warmer weather. How are you celebrating? It’s been a busy year and I’m […]

distro update after MKEZF 2013

There have been some big changes in the catalog since I tabled at two zine fests, one in late summer and the other less than a month ago. The first was the Portland Zine Symposium, where sales were way down, and the second was the Milwaukee Zine Fest, where sales were way up! I sold out of a few titles […]

new titles and sale!

Like I had already said, in appreciation of IZM I’m offering a free zine with any order. On top of that it’s distro week, so I’m also offering half price on any of these new-to-BOTS titles. I inhereted some of these from another distro that closed and want to get them out into the world. I […]

izm midweek 1

When planning my reading for the week I forgot about today’s prompt so I’m re-reading the lovely Doris, which is one of my all-time favorite zines (I can push back habit #3 til Monday). Cindy was one of the first zinesters I traded with, which was almost 15 years ago! I feel a special connection […]


I’ve noticed that I’m down to a single issue of many older titles. I’m also tired of offering the same stock at so many events, especially with just 1 or 2 copies of a title. Even though they’re older they’re still really great and I want to get them in the hands of readers. This […]

November Stock

I’ve finally updated the stock since last time. After Chicago ZF, getting married, having an extended honeymoon road trip, moving, Milwaukee ZF and Madison ZF (Dane County Print Explosion) I’ve been extremely busy and the stock has changed a good amount. I’ve added a number of my own titles as well as my husband’s. Check […]


I know it’s been a bit since I posted but I have some massive things coming. The Milwaukee and Chicago Zine Fests were great and I got the chance to hang out with some amazing people. I’ve sold out of a few things that were low, reprinted a bit, and picked up some new titles […]

Madison Zine Fest

Madison Zine Fest was a good time, as usual. It was run by two new folks and I think they did a good job, including trying a new location that was in a fancy newly built University Union. Unfortunately there wasn’t as much foot traffic as years past and a lot of people started to […]

October Stock

Over 50 titles! Here’s what’s available before tabling at The Madison Zine Fest 2011. Some descriptions are available (in the catalog under pages in the right navigation panel) with more on the way. My personal projects have minimal descriptions in the previous post. My personal projects: The Obsesser #0, $1, presale Writing and Loss, $1, […]


Thanks for checking this out. I am in the process of changing info over from my old site so this is very much in progress. Check back for the updated catalog. Briefly, I am a zine maker and distributor. I’ve run Bottles on the Sill Lending Library and Distro since 2003 (though the library is […]
