After Jane decided to create a new company to address this problem, she approached a couple of superheroes she happened to know, who graciously agreed to take part. The combined experience of this core staff adds up to several decades of editing, writing, promoting, schmoozing, and talking authors off metaphorical ledges.
But because of our years in various facets of the writing and publishing biz, RAR can also draw on a larger pool of talent, which gives us access to a wide variety of skills, writing styles, and design techniques. In addition, we know a lot of other great people involved in pretty much all aspects of book writing, editing, production, and marketing, so if there’s something you need that we don’t do, tell us and we can probably point you toward someone awesome who does.
At the end of the day, we’re word nerds who love nothing more than spending our days talking, tweeting, posting, pinning, and otherwise engaging with other word people.
It may sound hokey, but we actually believe in things like ethics and honesty, and we think social media is the perfect place to practice them.
Hard-selling is for car dealerships, not creative endeavors. We’ll never
treat your book like a product,
and we’ll never treat people
like means to an end.
We believe approaching every interaction with a positive spirit really does help make the world better for all of us, and we think
Our motto is “You catch more flies with funny pet videos than with just about anything else.”
Or something like that.
We do not engage in trolling, roasting, flaming, burning, schooling, dissing, owning, or any other forms of
aggressive Internet behavior. We’d rather just talk to people.
We believe in offering understanding instead of judgment, keeping our ears and minds open, helping instead of condemning, and that the Golden Rule is golden for a reason.
