Raven West was one of the very first print-on-demand (POD) authors when her novel "Red Wine for Breakfast" was published with the AOL Writers Club in 1999.
Before M.J. Rose reached fame for her e-book on a disk, "Red Wine For Breakfast" was published by Book-On-Disc.Com (June 24, 1999). Before Dan Poynter made his fortune as the marketing guru in the Print-On-Demand industry, the novel was one of the first books published in that format by iUniverse, (July 2, 1999).
Before Kindle, "Red Wine for Breakfast" moved to SMASHWORDS in ebook form.
Her second novel "First Class Male" was published by independent publisher Lighthouse Press, but when that company folded, she took over all publishing rights and re-distributed her novels through Amazon's "Create Space".
Her non-fiction book "Rescuing Ruby: How I Rescued My Father from Greedy Cousins, Thieving Attorneys and the Florida Guardianship System" by Robin Westmiller, J.D. has reached as high as #4 on the Amazon best-seller list.
West has appeared as a guest on numerous radio and cable TV broadcasts. She's been a book-signing author at Book Expo Association (BEA) in both New York and Los Angeles as well as a featured author at the Los Angeles Times Book Festival and Santa Barbara, Ojai and Ventura County book fairs.
