My name is Roy Haney and I would like to introduce you to me and to my website
BLUE BUFFALO PUBLISHING.
With the exception of a few years, I have lived in the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Area. My life experiences
and education have given me the knowledge, perception and intuition to apply myself in life and it lead me
to becoming a Human Resource management professional. I loved the work that I did in Human
Resources and I was very successful at it. However, it never fully satisfied the need I had when
transferring thoughts and ideas to paper; particularly when imparting a metaphorical sentence or idea
resulting in a clearer communication of an idea or story. So fast forward…I decided to do what I had a
passion for and wrote a novel titled, YESTERDAY’S RAIN: LEGEND OF THE BLUE BUFFALO.
After finishing the manuscript for YESTERDAY’S RAIN, I aggressively tried to find an agent to
represent me and get my book published, but none of them wanted to represent an unknown author. The
common responses that I received was that they were not accepting new authors or it was not in their

I started my own publishing company based upon a character in my book, the Blue Buffalo, and
BLUE BUFFALO PUBLISHING was born. My book has sold on several large on-line booksellers including
Amazon, Kindle and Google and I see it offered at other Internet sites, including overseas. I have received
five-star reviews on Amazon and favorable comments that you can see on my Title and Author Page. I
have also received favorable reviews in the Sacramento Book Review and the San Francisco Book
I had completed YESTERDAY'S RAIN while working full time as Human Resources Director for a
prominent East Bay company ...Quite a conscientious endeavor. I thought that after completing RAIN, I
could just as easily whip out the sequel. However that was interrupted by a demanding business plan
that included company growth during a slow economic period and heavy negotiations. So the plan was
I have just fully retired from my professional life in Human Resources and intend to continue writing. My
current writing project is the sequel to YESTERDAY’S RAIN titled A VIOLENT STORM: RETURN OF THE
I feel fortunate and gratified that I was able to write and publish my book through my own company.
However, I have changed my position and direction in becoming a publisher and will concentrate the Blue
Buffalo Publishing Website in the publicizing and announcement of my own writing.
Thank you for your interest in my book and I hope that you will continue to follow my writing.
