Iron Rose Press
For some time I have been considering self-publishing. It isn't because I have been unsatisified with my current publishers, if anything overall, I consider myself very fortunate for the ones I have dealt with so far in my writing career.
The first thing that got me thinking about self-publishing was that I have some works that don't fit with any of the small e pubs that I currently work with. For example: I write sweet romance and well, at this time it's been my experience that the market for this is very small. I am judging this by my own sales figures and trends in the e pub market. Also, I write some other stuff that is way outside the box and rather niche. Last but not least, I enjoy writing shorts. By self publishing this stuff, I am not restricted in what I want out there with my name and brand.
Iron Rose Press will focus on erotica, but will also delve into some other genres such as horrormance(As I like to call it). This is primarily a self-publishing entity, and at this time I have no plans to take on anyone else.
I have acess to great cover artists, an editor, and formatting. I figure it's worth a try. I know many are down on self-publishing, but I feel this is a good move for me. I will still submit to my current publishers. Iron Rose Press is just another venture to put my writing out there.
