#3 Lulu test promising/ Subscription drive anemic

1. In my ongoing effort to make M-Brane available for POD via Lulu, I uploaded the issue #3 file and examined it for for failures. It looks fine, and I think I can say with renewed confidence that this edition can be made available simultaneously with the PDF release on 4/1 (see previous post for contents and cover image of #3). The Lulu versions of #1 and #2 are still too error-ridden, but I am considering fixing that now that I know how. I still have a few print copies of #1 and #2 and they remain for sale via the "subscribe" link. 

2. A while ago, I set a goal of getting 25 new subscriptions or equivalent in donations or sales of single copies or print copies of #1 and #2 by 3/15.  It's 3/10, and we're not there yet. Just saying. It does appear, however, that some more awareness of the existence of the zine is penetrating through the web.

I'm thinking of giving print subscriptions as birthday and xmas presents this year. :)

Also, I got a sample copy of The Willows. Might be worth checking with those guys as to how they deal with the print process since they have a lot of intricate graphics (it is a Victorian-themed mag, so you can imagine) and I bet it can be pretty expensive to produce. Anyway, it reminded me of M-Brane since the physical binding/paper is similar.

Hope you are doing well. I'm not getting any writing/critting done this past week and its driving me bonkers. :)
