First things first, we are not THAT kind of publisher. Unless you want us to be Because you, our readers, are the driving force behind what we will offer in the months and years ahead. So, please, pull up a chair, browse through our site, and take a look at our free offerings this month.
Let me tell you a little about Naked Reader and our authors.
Naked Reader came about when a group of us, all writers, editors and others in the publishing field as well as a few with legal or accounting backgrounds, got together and started talking about what we would like to see in a publishing house. That conversation quickly turned to the number of authors who were taking advantage of e-publishing through their own sites, through "cooperatives" and the like. A few more conversations down the road and we came to the conclusion that we wanted to offer more than just our own books and stories for sale. We wanted to offer the opportunity for authors with backlists to release those books in a digital format at terms that were fair to them; terms that would keep cost to the reader down while giving the author more money per book than they would get through a traditional route. Later, after more talk and a lot of research, we decided that we could pool all our talents and Naked Reader was born.
So, what's our goal? That's simple. We want to bring you, our readers, e-books and short stories you will enjoy in a variety of genres and formats. Some will be new. Some will be reprints. Some will by established authors. Others will be by authors just breaking into the business. But all will go through full editorial review before ever leaving our offices.
That's not to say we won't have some bumps along the way -- usually from me -- as we get things up and running. If you see something, don't hesitate to send us an email to let us know.
