Today I’m again welcoming Ruby Lioness Press. Marissa Dobson is here to give readers a look at the press and what they can expect from their titles. (A quick note to readers: if a cover you see here catches your eye, click it for more information on the book.)There’s also a few links for authors with story ideas they’d like to pitch to RLP, so if you’re an author (or aspire to be) hang tight to find out how you can join the Ruby Lioness family. Now, on to the interview.
Marissa, welcome back! Thanks for being here. Can you tell our readers a bit about Ruby Lioness Press? What prompted the creation of the house, and when was it founded?
Ruby Lioness Press is a new publishing house that publishes pretty much everything. Angelique Mroczka (Angie) and I started this house when we noticed a need for it. Ruby Lioness Press puts our authors first, without them we wouldn’t be in business in the first place.
Fantastic policy! What types of books will readers find there?
We publish all genres. At this time you will find romance is our most forefront genre but we have a number of young adult novels coming soon. As well as mystery, erotica, and more.
See that, readers? No excuse not to drop in, LOL! Marissa, what sets Ruby Lioness Press apart from other publishers?
We market the books. We work with the authors to set up book tours, send out reviews, set up local book signings, etc. Getting the books out there is the only way you are going to find the readers. Letting it set on the bookshelf (or virtual shelf) isn’t going to help the author.
We want every author to be happy with the final project. We don’t want our authors putting their name on something they aren’t completely happy with. We do our best to make their book shine.
Marketing for your authors is HUGE, and something I’m sure your authors appreciate. How often do you release new books? Which formats can readers find at Ruby Lioness Press?
At this time we are releasing one book a week. Our books come in all formats and are on all sites.
That’s fabulous, especially considering some readers are partial to certain vendors. Any releases (or upcoming releases) you’d like to highlight?
Ruby Lioness Press has a multi author series, the Clearwater series. We recently just released our first book in the series, Winterbloom by Marissa Dobson (link- http://rubylionesspress.com/shop/winterbloom/) and the next book in the series Finding Home by Lacey Wolfe releases May 11th.
We have a number of wonderful authors involved in this series so far and more I’m sure to come. You can find our websites here (http://clearwaterrlp.wordpress.com/ ) and our facebook pages here (https://www.facebook.com/ClearwaterSeries )
I’ve checked out the series page and I have to say it’s a really cool concept. ;c) What’s next for Ruby Lioness Press?
We are currently hosting a live pitch session, http://dlindunauthor.blogspot.com/ and we are also accepting pitches via email (email@example.com) and this form https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dHBZSnRBNTYtWVBtRlphVWFTOEd1V0E6MQ
Awesome! And on that note, if an author is interested in learning more about submitting to Ruby Lioness Press, what does he or she need to know? What types of stories are you seeking?
Ruby Lioness Press is always open to new authors and stories. We are currently seeking to add some novellas to our upcoming lineup. You can find our submission guidelines here… http://rubylionesspress.com/submissions/ and you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
