"It's a Garden" is a Friends at the Table fanzine with over 45 wonderfully talented contributors, where each illustration or piece of writing is based around one song from the amazing Twilight Mirage soundtrack.
"It's a Garden" is a Friends at the Table fanzine for the Twilight Mirage season of the podcast. With contributions from over 45 extremely talented artists and writers, it is a 60+ page book that you can purchase either in hard copy or PDF form in this single run printing.
This zine is unique in that each of the contributions is based around one song from the amazing TM soundtrack. For each song on the soundtrack there is at least one illustration or written contribution in the book. This also means that the art pieces in the book tell the story of the full season of Twilight Mirage in chronological order.
Everyone involved has worked super hard to see this project come to life and we're super excited to finally get to share it with you!

What charity is it? Where's the money go?
First, we are doing this as a crowdfunding pre-sale in order to raise the funds necessary to actually go to print. This covers printing and shipping costs, and platform and credit card fees.
After that, the profits will be split: a percentage to the contributing artists, writers, and editors; and a percentage to Friends at the Table, who will be donating 100% of their portion to RAICES (The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services). Check out the RAICES website at www.raicestexas.org to learn more about this great cause!
And, because printing fees go down as volume increases, more money raised means a higher percentage goes to charity -- so if the goal of $12,000 is exceeded, that means even more funds to be donated!
