Please pardon delays w/ the print ver. of Issue 8

Update 11/17:
The print listing for issue#8 is up.

Wanted to send out a notice about our new distributor *_^ They've been having site difficulties since the beginning of the month but I've been assured they're working on it and we'll be notified as soon as they recover and the listing is available. I'm just as itchy to have it made available to you, and am heeding your messages expressing desire for the print version. We try to have print available in tandem or at least relatively soon after the digital offering releases. We'll get the rhythm right once we secure the right printer options <3 href="">Issue 8 listing. If you're not on the mailing list and wish to be, let me know and I'll take care of it (usually within 24-48 hrs): purplemag at

note: If Indyplanet doesn't resolve the difficulties by early next week there's another printer distributor I can list the magazine with who is a bit more expensive but affordable where the end price is concerned. I truly apologize for the inconvenience. For some reason, we've had a time landing the ideal printing experience. Hopefully this is a passing glitch.
We may be offering several print options for each issue of varying prices due to pod printer base rates
. One we have in mind can guarantee to issue-order availablity the same day as digital releases, but they are about double the price of Indyplanet. It will be a good option for those who don't want to wait for the less expensive listing.
We contacted Comixpress to see if future issues containing graphic-novellas will be eligible for their online listings (they have a 'zine' listing in their store but after writing to receive clarification I discovered they print anything for direct purchase but to be in the store pubs have to be graphic-lit related- I did let the women I was corresponding with in their customer service department know that 'Zines' are usually considered to be multi-topic related in DIY culture, to help them avoid further confusion for potential customers who will probably assume any zine is acceptable for listing seeing their 'zine' category. I have yet to hear back regarding our questions about listings after that for some reason. They have great prices but communication has left a bit to be desired. We'll see how it all flows in the future.).

Shine on Stars
