Rozlyn Press is a full-service small press. When a novel manuscript is chosen, the author signs a contract for First-Edition Release with royalties. For our short story anthologies, contributors sign a contract for First North American Serial Rights. Based on an individual timeline, we edit and design our manuscripts in-house. Each book is assigned a unique ISBN number prior to publication.
We are not a self-publishing or vanity press. We print paperback with Lightning Source. Our titles can be found at online booksellers as well as the Ingram distribution catalog available to book stores. We do not pay to publicize with expensive media outlets, and authors are encouraged to partner in the promotion and marketing process through individual outreach. We promote our releases by offering review copies to selected newspapers, websites, and book bloggers.
Separate from our submission and publishing process, Rozlyn Press also offers fee-based consulting, editing, and graphic design services. For additional information, email firstname.lastname@example.org. References available upon request.
SPINE is the annual anthology written by the students of EmersonWRITES, an urban, creative writing program at Emerson College offering free college-style workshops to students grades 8-12 enrolled in a Greater Boston public or charter school. All students who enroll in an EmersonWRITES course have the opportunity to create, revise, and publish their writing in SPINE. (Edited and designed by Alayne Fiore, Rozlyn Press.)
Bunny Jan’s Tale by Jan Grande
(Edited and designed by Alayne Fiore, Rozlyn Press)
In 1971, when her husband left her with no money, no car, and two small children, Janice Yates was desperate for work. A few months later she became a waitress for the Playboy Club of Boston. Bunny Jan’s Tale is a memoir of injury and chronic pain, as well as love and loss, but most importantly tremendous resilience as one woman struggles to survive.
