Liam’s response to selling the first copy of his first zine:
Me: Oh Liam, someone bought your zine!
Liam: What?! Now I won’t have it anymore?!
Me: Oh, no Liam. We’re just going to send them a copy of it. 
Liam: But then they’ll have it and not me?
Me: No baby, we made a bunch of copies of it to share with other people, and you get to keep the original one that you made. Understand?
Liam: Okay. What was their name?
Me: The person that bought your zine?
Liam: Yes. 
Me: Ashley.
Liam: Ashley? Where do they live?
Me: Idaho.
Liam: Oh. What is her Dad’s name?
Me: I don’t know. 
Liam: What is the name of the other guy?
Me: The other person that bought your zine?
Liam: Yes.
Me: Well, no one else has bought one yet. 
Liam: WHAT?! But this is my whole world! It’s my whole country! It’s everything I can see!
Me: Well don’t worry, I’m sure someone else will buy a copy tomorrow. So how about this: Every time you sell a zine, I will give you $2. And you can do whatever you want with that money. Okay?
Liam: I am going to buy chocolate. And spinach. And then I will have chocolate spinach. You’ve never tasted anything like that before! It’s like … It’s like oregano water with salt! It’s so good!
Me: Well, that sounds interesting. So, you’re sure you’re okay with us sending out copies of your zine if you get to keep the original one that you made?
Liam: Yes. What does R2D2 talk like? Can you make that sound for me?

And there you have it! Liam’s zine, Big Diamond, is now available at the Pioneers Press website. Full disclosure: If you buy a copy, he will use the money to make chocolate spinach.

    這是 Liam的媽媽跟他說他的小誌賣出去之後,他的反應。 媽媽: Liam,有人買你的小誌喔! 什麼! 這樣我不就沒有小誌了! 媽媽: 我們只是寄一份copy給他啊。 這樣子就只有他們有,我沒有。 媽媽:...
