Our Seasoned Squad

We are spicing up the publishing industry!

RIA | JAY brings a fresh new feel to the publishing industry. We enjoy publishing edge-of-your-seat, teeth-clenching, tale-twisting, hair-raising, white-knuckled stories. We love colorfully written books that pique reader’s interest and keep them intrigued from beginning to end.

Even our children’s books are fascinatingly flavorful. With vivid pops of color and engaging storylines, we delight in books that plant positive seeds in little minds.

Overall, we appreciate books that have new ideas and that creatively encourage the human spirit. With us, you will never find a boring read, and we encourage each author to be bold, spirited, and daringly original.

Though our main focus is spicing up the writing world, we never jeopardize quality for a juicy story. Like any perfect recipe, we slowly craft our works to perfection. No matter the amount of time it takes, we won’t stop until we get it right. We’re here to add special seasonings to your project to give it the perfect flavor.

Serving authors a full menu of services to fit their needs. What’s your flavor?

Often times, new authors don’t know where to start. From writing the book to finding an editor, to publishing the book, then marketing; authors are desperately hunting for answers and resources turning authorship into investigative work! An author should be able to be focused on their craft, nothing more. But many find this impossible to do, due to the extensive legwork needed to get noticed. This is a major problem… but we have the solution.

Researching in order to find the writer’s resources is a thing of the past. Every possible thing that an author may need is right at their fingertips with RIA | JAY Publishing. Gone are the days that authors are Googling how to find publishers, how to find the right editor, and how to market their book. No more asking Alexa, “How do I write faster,” or “How do I overcome writer’s block?” No longer will an author have to look for ways to promote their book through social media marketing or through a personalized author website. Author’s won’t even have to search for photographers or videographers for headshots or to capture special events. We are literally an author’s one-stop-shop for writing, publishing, and promoting.
