My name is Roy E. 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 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 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
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 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 and heavy negotiations. So the plan was indefinitely delayed.
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. This
has given me a considerable amount of experience to pass on and I would like to help other writers that
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 the contribution it would 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.
