Scaling time has come

Alright — I’ve completed the Pre-Scale Checklist, so I’m ready to scale my publishing startup. I’ve got a number of financially dormant products I can potentially growth-hack into the profitsphere:

• the Snapback series

Snapback Vol.2 cover

That Go content you crave.

An illustrated adventure revolving around the ancient, extremely popular board game of Go. A digital copy of first book is free to download if you create an account on this site, and the second book is a few dollars. I also have paperbacks taking up space in my work area.

• Ghostcrime

A sci-fi horror comedy crime novel about the role of robots in future Nova Scotian society, and what can happen when there are also ghosts involved. eBooks and paperbacks are both available. Full disclosure: this is the one that I most want to succeed. Please buy Ghostcrime.


Ghostcrime is without a doubt a masterpiece of science fiction.

Ghostcrime also has a software tie-in. Do you need an inexpensive CRM solution? ghostCRM can keep track of your contacts and reminds you about your various obligations. It’s free, though it does attempt to sell you a digital copy of Ghostcrime.


Most novels don’t have a companion CRM.

ghostCRM will play an important role in scaling, as it will save me thousands of dollars in SalesForce licenses.

• Diamond Find

A massive interactive story and possibly the most comprehensive diamond-finding simulator available. There’s over 85,000 words of text and it’s a roller-coaster of fast-paced diamond-finding adventure.

Will you ever find the Ghost Diamond?

Right now you can play for free without creating an account, but if you do, it’ll save all the diamonds you’ve found. Definitely, definitely scalable.

• I Found This Badger

A blog about my experiences living with a badger, and what I learned along the way. Currently there’s no way to meaningfully interact with this blog or give me money because of it, but so far it’s hooked in a lot of readers who like badgers.

Scaling these may be a challenge, but luckily, I think it can be done. But where does one begin?

I have chosen to start by writing business algorithms. NEXT →
