My name is Roy E. Haney and I would like to introduce you to myself and to my website
BLUE BUFFALO PUBLISHING.
With the exception of a few years, I have lived in the San Francisco, California East Bay Area. I received a
B.S. from the University of San Francisco and an MBA from Golden Gate University. 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 the 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
genre. Frustrated I decided to self-publish YESTERDAY’S RAIN.
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
I am now fully retired from my professional life and intend to continue writing. My next project is the
sequel to YESTERDAY’S RAIN that hopefully will be completed and published this year or early next
year. I feel fortunate that I was able to create my own publishing company and publish my book. This
has given me a considerable amount of experience to pass on and I would like to help other writers that
we feel can make a literary contribution.
My future emphasis at BLUE BUFFALO PUBLISHING will be to continue to write and publish my own
work; however, I am also interested in helping, on a fee basis, a few selected dedicated writers publish
their work on the Blue Buffalo Publishing label. I will be very selective in choosing the work as it will be
critically evaluated by us for content and contribution it could make to the literary community. If you
would like to submit your work, please look at the criteria and follow the rules and instructions as
outlined on the Submissions page.
Thank you and I do hope that you will purchase my books and enjoy my writing.
