After about five or six weeks of sales for GameSpite Quarterly #1, the plucky little magazine/journal/mini-book/whatever has sold about 300 copies. That’s hardly enough for me to quit and make it my full-time job, but still hardly too shabby for a fairly pricey niche-oriented publication with outrageously high shipping fees. Especially since I haven’t actually promoted it outside of this site.
We’re about a week from deadline for article text submissions for issue 2, and the results are really great so far! So, I figure it’s time to begin talking about the next book. I’d do the viral thing, but I don’t have time to really come up with something interesting. You’ll have to settle for the indelicate presentation of the teaser image from the back of the first issue, I’m afraid.
However, I can assure you it is relevant in every way to the theme of the next book. I can also assure you that the lemon cake in this photo was delicious.
