Alder-by-Mail? A new idea
I have, thanks to [personal profile] eseme's brilliant idea, the text and layout for a postcard-sized story, based off one of [personal profile] wyld_dandelyon's prompts. The story is safe-for-all-ages, as is the layout.

If you donated $5 or more to the December Giraffe Call, and are interested, I will mail you a mini-story postcard: Alder-by-Post Issue One. (or, if you'd rather and aren't as enamored of snail mail as I am, a pdf).

If there is interest beyond this, I would open up Alder-by-Post to subscriptions and write one per call, $2/card ($2.50 non-US, sorry, postage!), $20/year, or $1/pdf, $10/year.

Edited to add: If I get interest of 25 or more people, I will have these professionally printed (I am not really expecting this. ;-)

I always like having things I can hold and show people, so I'd be down. (I might need to put an updated address in paypal, though, I've been having issues getting the new one to stick.)

I have a street address starting with 41- for you in Paypal. If that's wrong, you could DM me the right one and I'll send off a postcard tomorrow!

Okay, that one is right. I couldn't remember if I donated to you before or after I finally got the new address to stick. :D

Cool! I shall mail you a post-issue tomorrow!

I think this is a brilliant idea, you can put me down for a subscription if you do it.

Ooh, that sounds like a fun idea!

I don't suppose you'll be wanting spot-art for it?

If I get enough interest where I can afford art, sure!


I have a -whole bunch- of free Avant Card postcards with nifty looking art that I've been collecting for ages. A pity you're in the US or I'd send you the lot...

Ooooh, shiony snailmail! :D

Very. Now I'm sad I didn't donate. Can I bribe you with a third art to get issue 1? XD

Sure! I'm always bribable with art!

I like the idea, and getting things in the mail is always fun, but I'm not sure I'm cleared to accumulate more stuff presently ...

Small stuff like postcards piles up over time. I have a shoebox full of postcards at least. XD

They sound small and harmless until they start piling up!

(But really, I should deal with other stuff I don't use, and then it would be more okay. And then I'd have to go back and figure out how to sign up for issue #1. Hmmmmm ...)


Well, current plan is to have a limited-edition run of the first issue...

Would you care to set a deadline on dithering? Or has it passed already?

The deadline is Friday at 4!

It would mean getting letters! Yes please!

Does PayPal have your address correct?

I enter it manually everytime so it should do. I don't actually have a PayPal account.

That's right! O_O All right, I'll send a postcard tomorrow-Thursday when I print them!!

It was mailed Thursday; I hope it gets to you all right!

The earliest it could be delivered is Sunday your time.

Cool, I hope you get it soon! :-D

May I have an overseas subscription rate, please?
Not just foreign, overseas. :)

$25/year, or $2.50/issue. BUT you have donated to every single giraffe call and everything else, so I'd feel bad taking more of your money for this... it comes free with your donation level.

I believe I had to make a new donor category to account for you! Thank you!
