Hello to all our new L.A. Zine Fest 2015 friends !!! It was lovely to meet you all xoxox

L.A. Zine Fest made me realize that what sells is just being myself – the most popular zines at our booth were my personal 5 year journey with depression and panic attacks and my sad girl poem book written IN THE MOMENT of my panic or depression…which I was totally nervous about releasing…but apparently everyone could relate to the feelz <3

Thank you to everyone for your support and I’m excited to see all of my fellow zinesters’ work grow !
