We are a tight-knit team of professionals volunteering our time for Rock Hard Press. We do this because we believe in its potential to raise the bar for sci-fi and fantasy erotica. Profitability will come down the road. Here is our current crew:

Harper Sinclair

Co-Founder | Publisher

Harper Sinclair lives in Bremerton, Washington, with a salty parrot named Ahab. When she is not reviewing manuscripts for Rock Hard Press or dreaming of world domination, she enjoys long walks in the rain and consuming more coffee than should be legal.

Bella Kensington

Co-Founder | Editor-in-Chief

Bella Kensington lives in Glendale, Arizona, where the only things hotter than the weather are the books she enjoys reading. When she is not immersed in a steamy novel, she enjoys hiking, playing pickleball, wine tasting, and attending performing arts events.

Bella is the author of the upcoming nonfiction book 69 Scenes: The Art of Writing Sex, which is due out in Q4 2024.
