Q. What is a zine?
A. From wikipedia: (/ˈziːn/ ZEEN; an abbreviation of fanzine, or magaZINE) is most commonly a small circulation self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images usually reproduced via photocopier.
Q. What is a secret message?
A. A Secret Message is a reminder of sorts for something you innately know at your core. Like a colorful fortune cracked out of a cookie at just the right time. I believe when you find one it can help air out your lungs, melt your heart and bolster your soul. I'm always on the lookout for them.
Secret messages can be found in your everyday life. I personally like to find them for myself and express them via art. I'm happy to share my discoveries.
Q. When I receive your zine, what do I DO with it?
A. My zine can be used however you like. What do you do with a magazine when you read it? You can do the same thing with my zine. Some people enjoy cutting it up and collaging with it in their personal art. Others like to use it like a fortune cookie or a tarot card by opening it to a random page and revealing a secret message for their day. Maybe you'll sit down and read it all in one sitting and then toss it in the recycling bin. No matter how you use it, my intention is that it inspires, nourishes and propels you onward in your own living. Think of it as a whisper in your ear that you can keep going in your desired direction in life. Secret messages do not expire and experience no shelf life.
Q. Is there some sort of group of your subscribers that I can connect with, like a Private Facebook Group or Facebook Page?
A. I personally do not have a private Facebook Group for the Secret Message Society.
Secret Message Society member Celia Bradshaw does facilitate a private Facebook group for members to participate in an optional monthly postcard art exchange. If you would like to participate in this just let me know upon subscribing, and I will be sure to add you.
Q. Can I purchase back issues of the zine?
Q. I'm done receiving your zine. How do I end my subscription?
A. If you need help processing a cancellation of your membership, I would be happy to help you. Contact me.
Q. Do you sell your secret message art anywhere else?
Q. My question isn't answered here. Can I contact you?
