Rock*It Reads

I’m proud to be a member of Rock*It Reads, an authors’ collective made up of stellar New York published romance authors who are expanding into self-publishing.

With the explosion of epublishing and ereaders and self-publishing, there are more books than ever out there.

If there’s a downside to all this plenty, it’s figuring out a way to sift through the thousands of books, looking for the gems.  A map, a compass, some way to find quality.

That’s where Rock*It Reads comes in.

Your romance compass.

Rock*It Reads authors are New York authors who have made a committment to put out only high-quality self-published stories.  The logo we use on our stories is meant to be a ‘seal of quality,’ to let you know we care as much about writing great stories as you do about reading them.

Readers can be assured that when they purchase a Rock*It Reads logoed story, they’re buying a story that has been tended with the same level of professionalism that we bring to our New York works.

Rock*It Reads is not a publisher.  These are 100% self-published works, done by each author, on her own dime, on her own time.
We’ve simply banded together to form Rock*It Reads to help our readers find other high-quality self-published works.  We’re hoping the logo will be a like a little beacon or guide though the vast world of self-published romances.
