» Issue #2. Don’t Eat Off The Sidewalk!

Issue #2.

The zine pages have all been updated and it’s ready to buy, whoamygodholyshit. If you were a tester and you tested five recipes, I emailed you about your free copy so DON’T BUY IT. Take your freebies like a man!

Moving on.

If you order between right now and Sunday afternoon, your order will be mailed on Monday.

I did reprint the first issue, however I only got fifty copies and when they’re gone this time, they’re gone. I thought about not reprinting them but i’ve told a dozen people or so that I would, so I did. When these are gone it brings the total run to about 500 (I lost count because if printing several smaller batches). I think that’s a good run. I’m not saying i’m never going to print it again, but for now.

I made 200 copies of the second issue because I was wary of getting more done and then having to sit on them for half of the winter. Which means i’ll probably blow right through them. I want to sell them but I kinda hope they don’t go to fast because I hate Kinkos and like to go there as little as possible.

Anyway, i’m going to go make breakfast now. Please bombard me with orders!

ETA: I’m having some problems with the Paypal buttons, i’m trying to fix them as we speak. WordPress keeps messing up the code because it hates freedom.

ETA again: Fixed! If I use the visual editor, it messes up the code for the buttons. And if I use the html code, the pictures get messed up. So I just took down the images of the covers.

ETA 3.5455460:  Could someone outside the US place an order?  Apparently while I wasn’t looking, Paypal changed their shipping options and since I didn’t have international shipping set up (all of the shipping used to be lumped together), it wasn’t charging for shipping.  I think I fixed it and I want to be sure.

    Just letting you know that when you click on ‘add to cart’ for everywhere else for your second zine, it comes up as costing $3.50 instead of $4.50

  2. Katie says:

    Jo, when you check out the shipping is calculated and it adds on the extra dollar. But I should edit the page to make it more clear, thanks.

  3. Brooke says:

    I cannot figure out how to buy this. I just can’t. I can read the article and the comments but where do I go to order? I’m sorry if I’m such an idiot, but is is weirding me out.

  4. Amber says:

    The paypal button for “add to cart USA” isn’t working for zine #2. It just takes you to the paypal homepage.

  5. bryophyte says:

    I clicked on both and they both ended up in my paypal cart. However, the first time I tried to order my card was rejected, despite being pretty sure it could handle a $5 purchase. I went through the rigamarole a second time and was sucessful.

    Also, Brooke, you could just do it the old fashioned way if its that tricksy. I had an old paypal acct I’ve not used since Jan that I brushed off again so I was able to use that w/ some modifications, but if you don’t have an account it might be trickier.

  6. Suzie says:

    I ordered both at once, because I missed out on #1 when it came out! Can’t wait to get ’em. Sorry I was such a crappy tester. Next time, I promise to be better. Things got crazy at home and at work!

  7. Jo says:

    When I get to the ‘Review Your Payment’ page it still doesn’t add an extra dollar to the $3.50.

    Anyway, I’m really looking forward to getting your new zine!

  8. Jo says:

    Oops, I just saw that it does actually cost $3.50 and not $4.50, haha.

    I’m ordering it now.

  9. Katie says:

    It might’ve been Paypal, you prompted me to check my shipping options and apparently they recently changed it so you have to set up seperate shipping options for people outside of the U.S. It used to be lumped altogether and I could only charge one shipping price, so I made the shipping a dollar and just increased the price of the zine.

    I hate the internet, don’t you?

  10. Joni says:

    YAY! I just ordered mine. Can’t wait for all the yummy goodness.

  11. Brooke says:

    bryophyte, thanks, I swear when I was on here before there was no Zine on the right side. I gots it all figured out now though! Thanks!

  12. Emmie says:

    I totally just made two orders, and maybe that was dumb when I could have just lumped everything together to one big order. But that’s me, dumbo. Can’t wait for my zineses! wohoo wohoo!

  13. Foodeater says:

    Yea! Just ordered one of each since I missed the first one the first time around. I keep hearing all the fuss about your fine zines so I gotta get in on the action (mine’s the order you just got from N. Hollywood). Keep up the great work 🙂

  15. B.A.D. says:

    Drats, as soon as I fix my pay pal I’ll place an order.
    So excited.

  16. bunniee says:

    yay! I can’t wait to see the new zine.

  17. Andria says:

    So…just to add to all of this craziness…can I just buy mine from you at Thanksgiving when you’re in town?

  18. erica says:

    I’ve been eying the Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls since I saw them on Isa’s blog and now I’ll finally be able to make them!! Thank you

  19. Jackie says:

    Just ordered a copy of each…thank you for reprinting Issue #1!

  20. Cindy says:

    I was hoping to get these shipped to Australia but the only mail option seems to be US domestic. I expect I owe you more than $1 for postage!

    Hope you can sort that out – I’ll come back later and try again.

  21. Amy says:

    Ordered it – woo hoo!

  22. jeffrey says:

    Ordered. Can’t wait!

  23. Sara says:

    Have you considered charging per download of a pdf? I get some patterns of crafty things that way. You could skip Kinko’s that way.

  24. supercarrot says:

    or-durred both. (with my hubby’s account. it’s fine if you send it to his name, or mine. it don’t matter.)

  25. Tambra says:

    Katie- I jsut ordered a copy of zine #2 through Paypal. And -duh, me- I managed to okay the wrong address. And haven’t lived there over a year now, so PO will not forward. Will you email me so I can send you the right address?

  26. Katie says:

    If you sent me a payment via paypal, you have my email address. It’s in the confirmation email that they sent you.

  27. Kayla says:

    Yay! Can’t wait to see it.

  28. Anni says:

    I just ordered zines 1 and 2, can’t wait to get them! I hope I paid enough postage to get them to Finland safely, please let me know if something’s not quite right.

  29. bazu says:

    Just ordered- so exciting! My PayPal isn’t to my name, so if you’re sending it to some guy with the initials M.S. in NY, you know it’s actually me, some chick named Bazu…

  30. Nebraska says:

    Ordered both 1 and 2! I can’t wait!

  31. joanna says:

    hey katie, can you link to the zine pages from the index of the website? i seriously can’t find a link anywhere and i feel like an idiot but i’d really like to buy issue #2.

  32. Katie says:

    Joanna, I accidentally made the zine page private when I took down the first issue. I fixed it, it’s in the column on the right.
