It seems like just yesterday I created my small comedy publishing company, but in fact it was back in 2011, almost 3,000 days ago! With the changing tastes of the market over the years, the business, too, has had to change – but never as drastically as now. I've done a full re-brand, and I'm pivoting to an entirely new model.
Instead of a comedy company that occasionally produces Go content... it's a Go company that also produces comedy.
I present to you Mirth Turtle Media.

Hello. I've been doing a bit of melon-driven marketing recently, so if you're visiting because of that, high-five. Now that you're here, perhaps you'll consider buying a book. It's been said that Ghostcrime is very funny.
Speaking of marketing, I've been doing more work on ScaleQuail lately, and I'm deep in advertising hell, as you can probably tell from the recent melon initiative. Please bear with me for a few weeks.

With the air cooling down outside, I've been prompted to think about what I'm going to be working on this winter, as it's often a good time to hunker down and get a big project done.
At some point I should dig into Snapback, Volume 3 if I want to stick to the yearly release schedule, but I also want a bit of time away from that world, so I'm looking at other things.
I've been chipping away at another interactive fiction project in the same vein as Diamond Find. It improves on the underlying BinaryWoods engine, but won't be quite as staggeringly ambitious in size. With a few good weekends and maybe a burst at Christmas, I can probably get it done before the new year. So far: it's good.
I'll also be working on the ScaleQuail project, in order to "scale up" the business and increase distribution of my current offerings. Keep an eye on that, and I'll be making noise around the holidays to remind you that they make great gifts.
Until then, let me know if you want to collaborate on anything.

This has been in the works since a productive bout of "work mania" this summer, but today, ScaleQuail is live!
ScaleQuail is a blog about scaling up one's comedy business so that it may compete in the world marketplace as a profitable laughter entity. Follow along at home if you've got a comparable startup!
Amber Solberg did the excellent quail art.
