laughriotLaugh Riot Press, a new site dedicated to indie authors and humor books, plans to launch an e-commerce website this year.

The website will be designed as a location for writers to connect directly with readers looking for funny books. The platform will give writers publishing and social media marketing tools. The site will be genre-specific, focusing on humor, in an attempt to garner a more focused readership.

“I wanted my books to have a life of their own as soon as possible, my theory being the more funny books in the world, the better,” explained Rich Leder, screenwriter, novelist, and founder of Laugh Riot Press, in a statement.
