What exactly does one do with an entry such as this?InvisibleFriend 03:18, 9 May 2007 (EDT)

read it and eagerly await the release of the book.

Elisharubacha, have you written a zine, or is your book about zines? If not, the entry will most likely be removed. ZineWiki is a site for zinesters, writers about zines and others who've contributed to the zine community. Alan Fall of Autumn 10:33, 9 May 2007 (EDT)

I am a zinester, but this is not a zine. It is, however, independent media, which is what zinewiki is about.

Actually ZineWiki is not about all independent media... it's really just about zines and similar small press publications. For the most part independent music, radio, art, film, and books do not get pages unless they are obviously related zines. What would rock is if you think this listing is really appropriate for ZineWiki, that you edit it in a way that fits in with the rest of the content and doesn't just look like an advertisement for an upcoming book. The thing to keep in mind when adding listings is this is meant to be an encyclopedia/database of zines and zine history, so it's helpful to spell out where your book fits in zine history or a snapshot of the current zine world. Does it? And if so, you might want to edit it to reflect how it does. Something like: Brainsick is the first novel by zine publisher Elisha Rubacha, who previously published the following zines... Generally though, you'd want to create a listing for each of the zines you've published and for you as a zinester, and then just mention non zine-related books on the page with your publishing bio. I'm also completely confused by the link, it doesn't seem to go to any info on the book or publishing house, but rather to an unrelated page on sustainability. Also, you want to talk in the current or past tense, not in the future tense, unless you plan on coming back and updating the entry continuously. dan10things 12:07, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
