Zinester Queen of the Small Potatoes discusses the Creative Life on NextTribe

Tuesday, June 21st, 2022

If you missed my CREATIVE, NOT FAMOUS chat with NextTribe, here ’tis, enriched with an over the shoulder peek at the Silverback’s childhood home, a couple of standard issue pandemic mute/unmute glitches, and special appearances by contributors Ellia Bisker and J. Gonzalez-Blitz!

If you’ve got dishes to wash, laundry to fold, orders to ship out, 1000s of beads to stitch onto your new burlesque costume or other assorted busywork, this will help the time fly by!

Thanks to host Jeannie Edmunds and the Next Tribe community for having me.

Come out and play!

I’m toddling onto Next Tribe for free, virtual, interactive CREATIVE, NOT FAMOUS event tomorrow evening (or depending on your coordinates, afternoon, night, morning…)

Join me, if’n you’re not too Zoomed out. Make me feel like I’m the host of All Things Considered by putting me on in the background.

Better yet, roll up with questions, news of your own creative projects, cats, cocktails, mocktails… all the things! I’d love to see you, or, for the camera-averse, hear you.

Grab a spot and gitcher Zoom link here.Wahooooo!

Extra punishment for those who read all the way to the end: If you’re looking for ways to procrastinate (and dug the book) I’d be much obliged if you’d post a customer review to the site of your choice – your fave indie bookseller, your blog, AmazonGood ReadsBarnes & NobleLibrary Thing … for purposes of getting the word out, they’re all good.

(A massive thank you to those who’ve already shrugged into this voluntary harness!)

Get a load of CREATIVE NOT FAMOUS’ talented contributors’ books!

Thursday, April 28th, 2022

Writing books can be hard, but danged if some of the words and pictures inclined contributors to CREATIVE NOT FAMOUS: THE SMALL POTATO MANIFESTO didn’t crank out a metric heinieload of ’em. We’re making it easier for you to grab some of those titles from an indie bookstore with a BOOKSHOP affiliate link.


The bitter irony is that I can’t add CREATIVE, NOT FAMOUS to the list ’til the big gorilla distributor gets its mitts on it on MAY 10, our official publication day, but don’t let that stop you from toddling over to have a rummage in the potato patch.

Comics! Erotica! Essays! Graphic Novels! Magic! Memoirs! Zines! History! Scripts and Scores! Sci-fi! YA! A picture book, even! Anthologies galore!
