As a teenager filled with passion, pointless arrogance and no publishing experience, I learned everything on the job. My underground magazine Film Threat was a project I undertook right out of high school, and I was determined to make the ‘zine an important voice in the discussion of movies. And by an important voice, I meant a loud one, of course.
I went for this little book of poems based on the fact that Amanda Lovelace started off self-published. The Princess Saves Herself in This One began popping up on my Tumblr feed as people were getting more and more interested in this small, self-published volume. And that’s the thing that all aspiring writers want to see: someone else getting it done. So I picked up a copy.
