Description: 2006

Company Description: Rockfic Press, based in Asheville, NC, was founded out of Rockfic.com an Internet archive for rock band fiction and an online community for rock band fiction authors and fans. Rockfic Press publishes band fiction in trade paperback format, allowing readers to take their favorite band fiction with them anywhere and enjoy them the same way they enjoy their other favorite books—while lounging on the couch, sitting under a tree, or riding the bus.

Closing

On August 9, 2007, ScrewTheDaisies announced she would be closing RockFic Press. [2] "Obviously, I haven't been motivated to do much of anything with it (either publishing or promotion-wise) this year, and I don't see that trend turning around," she stated, also offering to sell the press to anyone who might be interested. On August 20 she changed her mind, stating that she'd be willing to keep it open if someone would be willing to take over bookkeeping for the press. Evaine offered to do so. This must have been a plan that worked for a while, but on March 28, 2008, ScrewTheDaisies announced that because of Amazon's new POD plans for small-press publishers, RockFic Press would be closing for good as of April 15, 2008.
