Introducing the Rogue Reader

Very exited today for the (soft) launch of The Rogue Reader, a new kind of publishing enterprise, run by Jason Ashlock, and powered completely by PressBooks.

The whole thing is running on a dedicated PressBooks network: front-end customizable WordPress, back-end book production on PressBooks… with the PressBooks books hooking right into the front-end catalog.

We have a few more key things to build (ecommerce!), and this is just a first cut, but this is the first real example of what I think PressBooks *should* be used for. Check it out!

The Rogue Reader is your destination for original, outsider suspense fiction. We showcase authors with big talent and even bigger scores to settle, and offer you a venue to connect and vent with them and with other rogue readers like you.

One thought on “Introducing the Rogue Reader

  1. I’m not sure if you might be interested in my novels or not. I’m currently writing mystery novels and most of my sales are through the Smashwords outlets. B & N is where most of my sales come from. My mystery series appears to be catching on both in the USA and abroad. My sales for the first half of the year are a few hundred sales and many hundreds of ree stories I’ve published.
    I hope to hear from you, Thanks for your time.
