You may have noticed a drop in blog posts last week on the Mutineer Blog. This is because we were feverishly working around the clock to finish the April/May issue of Mutineer Magazine, which will be the first issue of MM nationally distributed at bookstores and newsstands across America.
We’ve taken the magazine to a whole new level, with top-notch stories and an improved layout; the Mutineer Magazine vision is really starting to come together. If you are already a subscriber, you should receive your copy in the next week or two, and if you aren’t a Mutineer Magazine subscriber, then you should head over to our subscription page and join the mutiny!
Here is a preview of the features in the upcoming issue:
